A Jem of Cottage - Beautiful accommodation

This property is sat in an exceptional location near Walton - Mid Wales. The accommodation is beautiful, spacious and clean and the views from the patio are nothing less than just stunning. Lynne and adrian the proprietors are extremely pleasant and left us all the basic necessaries on our arrival for the week. It is quiet, warm and very homely with a lovely log fire to relax around in addition to the oil fired heating. Its very spacious, with an additional stunning summerhouse to relax in. Lots of pubs and small restaurants in the local villages. We spent the week horse riding and walking. This is really a 'Jem of a Property' and we are definitely coming back very soon. Perfect for the ultimate rest and relaxation with stunning surroundings and scenery.

Wonderfully quiet

Siluria 2 cottage really is great! It is spacious, well kept, tastefully decorated and has all the comfort you could hope for. Add to that the very friendly owners (who live close by) and you already have a great place to stay. But what really makes this cottage outstanding are the surroundings. It is more or less in the middle of nowhere, at the end of a mile long dead-end street. Consequently, it is very quiet. The only things you will hear are birds, cows (who will come to greet you!) and sheep. No people, no cars. At night, it gets as dark as nights are supposed to be. It is, in one word, arcadic. And if you should want to see other peope again, you can always make an excursion. There are lots of things to see and do.

Lovely peaceful cottage in a beautiful setting

We stayed here with our two boys aged 6 and 9, and were pleasantly surprised with the quality. Clean throughout, good linen, towels (supplied, unlike many cottages) and furnishings, good equipment in the kitchen, and free wifi throughout. The cottage is set along a quiet private drive, is semi-detached and has room for a couple of cars. The downstairs features a lean-to style conservatory, lounge, kitchen and downstairs bathroom with shower. Upstairs has three bedrooms. The main bedroom and second bedrooms were spacious and the third bedroom (which our 9 year old chose!) was smaller (watch the door on the bed). Outside has a large enough grassed area for the boys to charge about on. There's a table with 6 chairs and two loungers. There is use of a summer house, but it's down the road, past the owners' cottage so we didn't really use it. The bedrooms all had relatively low windows, so easy enough for children to open; it would have been better to have some way to secure them against opening too far. The main bedroom has the double with the second bedroom having the king/twin room. I felt it would have better to have the kingsize in the main bedroom, but I'm fussy over bed sizes. The description mentioned a selection of books, games and Dvds; we only found a handful of Dvds and some magazines, certainly no games which would have been useful for the wet days! For: Location - once our boys stopped making noise (eg, bedtime), all you could hear were the sheep, cows and birds! Quality of the fittings and so on Somewhere for the boys to run about safely Provision of things like cleaning equipment, tea-towels, dishwasher tablets etc against (minor ones!): Downstairs bathroom - we knew about this before booking, but it is the only bathroom, so if you need to get up in the night, it's a trip downstairs. Summer house - again, we guessed from the description that it wasn't near by. Conservatory wasn't really usable as it has local leaflets spread around the room on the shelf, and houses the cushions for the chairs and loungers, a BBQ, logs for the fire, and the recycling. We would definitely go back!
