Sample the eggs from the local chickens and freshly-brewed tea for breakfast at the hand-crafted breakfast bar.

After a full day out, snuggle up and embrace the view taking in magnificent sunsets. When it’s time for bed just close the blinds, pull back the duvet on the king-size bed and enjoy a good night’s sleep.

I cannot rate this hidden gem high enough. The pictures do not do it justice, it blew my mind and sets your imagination running wildly. Absolutely magical. So many hobbit houses are basic and modern inside and as soon as you enter, the magic stops, this just lights your imagination beyond belief. So private, and beautiful with the natural wildlife.Read more The personal touches of made soap and cake were so special and thoughtful. Hide

The setting was absolutely stunning. We loved that it was quite private so it felt like you had your own space. The small touches, like the disposable BBQ provided and board games and handmade soap in the bathroom were appreciated. The very warm welcome from Ozymandias the cat and Willow the gorgeous Welsh sheepdog topped it all off.

Extremely peaceful and private location with all you need for a quiet break. The hollow was lovely and cool in spite of us having hot weather for our stay, and the covered seating area outside was perfect for a barbecue. The information folder had some great recommendations for places to visit too.

This is a really charming little place in a beautiful location, with the baby Severn river running past the door and squirrels playing in the trees opposite. It is equipped with everything you need for a rural retreat and is so quirky, we loved it. Outdoor seating and firepit is a nice addition

I can honestly say that this is the best place i have ever stayed at! The location and setup is perfect. The hosts are fantastic (their dog & cat are also very friendly). Location-wise, if you are looking for a peaceful and tranquil location in the heart of Wales, then look no further! Waking up to the sound of lambs, pheasants and the flowing wateRead morers of the river, all just adds to an enhanced level of perfection to the whole experience! The LOTR theme of the cottage is truly brilliant! A++++ Hide

What an incredible place to get away from everything! Sharon & Peter were on hand if we needed anything, but we were left to enjoy the peace and tranquility. Would recommend walking into Llandiloes for a shop, as well as taking a drive to Elan Valley! The Hobbit house was just amazing. Cosy, immaculate and just so relaxing. Can't wait to go back!
