    “Pure bliss!”

    This part of mid-Wales is crammed with attractions so having such a great place to stay is the icing on the cake. Yr Hen Stablau is full of character and sits in the private grounds of the owner's estate. It's completely separate and secluded and has a beautiful peaceful garden around the cottage. Staying there in May means that you get to see all the azaleas and rhododendrons in full bloom. The inside accommodation is more spacious than the website photos. We loved the sitting room with the comfy sofa and chairs. We especially liked the varied lighting options in this room........many cottages are too dim to be able to read in during the evening. The huge kitchen is well equipped and also has good lighting. This year, being just two of us, we got to sleep in the lovely downstairs bedroom and found the bed incredibly comfy and very spacious. There's great storage space, a useful utility room and entrance porch for boots and walking gear etc. The owner is helpful and welcoming and we would highly recommend Yr Hen Stablau. Can't wait to return!

    It's very good to hear that you enjoyed the garden in May and the space in the cottage. Many thanks for the comments and for taking the trouble to explain the details! Nicola (Owner)
