Guestbook comments from the owner

All of the fine recommendations hardly do this cottage justice. Thank you so much for an excellent time!

There seem to be so few places left to stay which are silent (apart from nature's sounds), this is one of them.

Lovely secluded property

  • 5 of 5

I went here with my partner and 5 children and can’t recommend it enough if you want to get away from it all. We were lucky enough to get some snow and walks are right on your doorstep. Wild horses come up to the gate too. Had a lovely 4 nights.

An idyllic place

  • 5 of 5

We had an idyllic, snowy Christmas week at Cefn Pawl. It’s a beautiful, spacious stone cottage – warm and welcoming, with modern comforts that don’t at all detract from its character. There were only two of us, but it’s ideal for larger groups because the living area is so generous and well thought out. There’s plenty of room to relax, spread out and do different activities. We cooked some great meals in the large, well equipped kitchen, enjoying the sight of nuthatches, treecreepers and curious sheep.

There are lovely views all around; the main bedroom looks over the hills and gets the sunrise.

We had so much fun just living in this lovely house, but we did venture out each day and had some splendid walks across the snowy hills with no people in view – just sheep, ponies and birds. And what a welcoming place to come back to!

In short, we loved it. There is something very luxurious about being so comfortable, in such an attractive house, with all the usual modern trappings (wi-fi, Sky TV, etc), while at the same time having peace and seclusion, with no neighbours or busy roads – just beautiful hills all around.

Many thanks to Angelika, for her kindness and hospitality. We hope to return at a different time of year.

Owner's Response: Dear Isabel, thank you so much for your generous review. As my financial gains are not great I am thrilled to bits when guests are having a good time at Cefn Pawl and like it as much as I do. Alas I don’t get the opportunity for many visits . Of course you will always be welcome to visit again . As you have tasted winter maybe you would like to visit in a different season . They all have their special qualities . Kind regards Angelika

A mome atop the hill

  • 5 of 5

We opened the door and walked in and were immediately hugged by the barn and made welcome. We have never before felt so at home in a holiday let.

We were staying in the area looking at houses with the aim of moving to this glorious part of the UK, and having such a peaceful and relaxing place to return to at the end of a long day's house hunting made all the difference.

Thanks Angelika, for the use of your cottage and the phone call to check we had arrived safely and that everything was in order.

Owner's Response: Dear Peter, I am delighted that our cottage Cefn Pawl served you well. I hope your house hunt was successful and that we can soon welcome you in our magnificent area. Or you simply have to come back again and hunt some more.

Car: necessary

Cefn Pawl is situated high on the up on the Radnorshire hillside in its own secluded setting commanding panoramic views over protected crown commission land practically on Glendwr's Way. Near by is the historic market town of Knighton with Offa's dyke, the Spaceguard Centre, the famous Harry Tuffin's supermarket and all other amenities. Presteigne where the annual Sheep music festival is held, is only down the road. Also Clun, Bishop's castle and Ludlow are within easy reach. Further afield are the red kites in the Elan Valley, the beautiful resort of Aberdovey and the very popular Borth on the coast, all within throwing distance of the Alternative Technology Centre at Machynlless. Llanidloes and the forest Hafren close to the spring of the river Severn is well worth a visit as is the quaint regional capital Llandrindod Wells, famous for its Victorian festival. Then there are numerous castles especially Powys castle, the Iron age fort near Knighton and of course Ironbidge.
