This cottage is beautifully decorated, with everything you need for a home away from home. The log burner added to the cosy atmosphere during our winter stay and the outdoor patio a perfect spot to enjoy the scenic view. It was an ideal cottage for our dog - with fully fenced patio and fenced fields so he could run and enjoy the snowy hills withoutRead more disturbing neighbouring sheep. The sauna facilities added a touch of luxury and a perfect spot to unwind after a day on the snowy hills. Hide

This was a very cosy and comfortable holiday cottage. It had all the amenities we needed (and more). The information booklet was packed with recommendations to help us plan our week and easy instructions on how to operate the appliances and log burner. We arrived on a stormy Autumn evening but once we lit the log burner we quickly began to relax. TRead morehe property manager was friendly and helpful. The property was clean and decorated to a high standard. We really enjoyed our stay! Hide

The cottage is extremely well equipped , tastefully decorated and very cosy. It was the best tonic for anyone to refuel their emotional wellbeing and totally relax. Could not have wanted for anything else in a holiday home. The location is tranquil and so very beautiful . By best the cottage that we have stayed in and felt at home immediately .

Starlight cottage is the perfect country getaway! My husband and I stayed here for our honeymoon and we couldn't believe how lovely it was! It's in the perfect location to enjoy the beautiful scenery and yet still not far from local pubs and shops. The spa treatments and the sauna are also a must especially in such a peaceful and relaxing setting!

Delightful cottage in beautifully landscaped gardens with fantastic scenery. Very rural so be prepared to drive everywhere.

Reviewed by Jane, 28th April 2017

The cottage is lovely and extremely comfortable, the most comfortable one we have stayed in. It's set in beautiful countryside and the owner has gone to the trouble of setting out various walks across his land. You can also walk much further, up on to the Black Mountain and beyond. Something that we hadn't quite appreciated was how remote the cottaRead morege is. It is a 25 minute drive down single track roads to Hay on Wye which is the nearest town. Hide

So cosy and comfortable. It is very remote so ideal if you want to get away from everything. There are styles or metal gates everywhere so be prepared to lift your dog over (luckily our dog is small!!) The White Haywood is amazing and well worth several visits (especially on a Thursday)

We had an absolutely amazing stay at this Cottage over Christmas; We just wanted a comfortable, quiet break away where we could relax and take our dog out for a few walks, and got exactly that!
