House was beautiful and had everything you could ever need.. Hot tub was lovely and the views are stunning. Would definately return and have already been recomending to family and friends. Owner is so warm and welcoming :-)
Fantastic property and the owner was very helpful

The cottage was wonderful and had everything you needed to make your stay perfect.. My only disappointment was that there didn’t appear to be any public footpaths/walking trails directly from the cottage. We did go through the fields but not really sure that was allowed as it is private land.
Mrs Purdy, December 2019
Absolutely enjoyed our mini break here and it was just as needed.. The Lodge was fantastic and had everything and more that we needed and was in such a quiet and peaceful location. Thank you very much.
Mrs Howells, November 2019
The cottage was beautiful.. Very well equipped and plenty of information about the local area. The views are lovely and the hot tub is perfect for relaxing after a busy day of exploring. We all really enjoyed our week in this cottage.
Mrs Land, October 2019
Furniture in the lounge was so soft it was actually uncomfortable, especially for anyone with back problems
Mr Wilkinson, September 2019
We stayed at this holiday cottage for a week from 31st August with our 2 boys (aged 7
We have just got back from a wonderful stay here at Cwmcelyn, truly the most peaceful and beautiful place I have yet to stay in Wales.. The Cottage was immaculate and exceeded our expectations 100%.
Some lovely walks just on the door step also.
Hot Tub was just a brilliant added bonus, nothing better than sitting relaxing in there watching the sun go down!
Sian was a wonderful host, her homemade Bara Brith was certainly a lovely welcome.
We hope to be back again!
The house was perfect, all the facilities and appliances are in top condition.. The most beautiful views and lovely remote location.
Great location, beautiful views, cottage is best equipped we have stayed in so far.. The Jacuzzi was great, for the views and back massaging powers. Wet room was good showers in both bathrooms were very good and powerful. Beds super comfy. Owners left a lovely homemade Bara brith, and we're very welcoming. We all had a lovely relaxing, although we walked miles in the Elan valley, time. Would highly recommend.
Beautiful home and views..
Beautiful property, stunning views and we loved the hot tub!
Wonderful getaway where you can truely relax
Three visits and we will be visiting again.. Beautiful place and our host Sian is wonderful.
What a fantastic 3 night break! The farmhouse has everything you need. The weather was beautiful and the views are absolutely stunning. Thoroughly enjoyed the break and feel well rested! Huge bonus is the hot tub!
We had an amazing holiday again.. We will definitely be booking with Sykes again for our family holiday next year. Cwmcelyn was the perfect holiday cottage for us. The secure garden with play frame and hot tub were a huge hit with the kids! Sian the owner was great and even baked us a cake and even dropped by to tell us she had dropped some two day old lambs in the field surrounding the house if we wanted to take a walk to see them. We’ve had two perfect holidays in nantmel now, thank you Sykes!!
Lovely farmhouse.. Very well equipped with everything I needed and more.
Absolutely fantastic cottage, everything we needed and more.. The owner couldn't be more helpful.
Clean, comfy beds and amazing views. We enjoyed watching the Red Kites in the garden.
We have just returned from a fantastic week at Cwmcelyn. It has been lovingly restored and has been made to feel like a home away from home, with everything you need for a relaxing break. There are three bedrooms. 2 are a nice size considering the size of the property, the 3rd was cosy but it would be a tight squeze for a 2nd person. All were clean and dust free, and beds were comfortable. Ample space in the bathroom and wetroom too.
The kitchen and utility room totally assist you in making the most of a self catering hol with virtually every utensil and appliance you could need to cook and subsequently clean with. It was nice to arrive to find milk tea and coffee already stocked, with various other usful bits and bobs left by other guests. We felt compelled to add to the collection!
The diswasher and tumble drier were handy too and you probably could get through the whole day without reusing the same plate or glass as they were very numerous.....we obviously didn't get that lazy though.
The lounge was cosy although make good use of the fire as the stone floor was rather cold.(but we did have a cold week)
The best feature, for me, anyway was the hot tub. Its covered but still gives you amazing views day and night (oh the stars!) and unlike some places i have stayed.....it was as hot or cool as we needed for us and our children. The garden is fully enclosed with a gate and safe for children to play freely.
This cottage truly has it all if you are looking for a secluded relaxing break. There isn't a lot to do in the winter, but the local villages and towns have all you need stock up, with some lovely little villages to just explore.
Many thanks to Sian and family for making Cymcelyn such a beautiful place to holiday. We can't wait to come back again.
Was a beautiful property in a perfect location! ! We had the peace and quiet we wanted but were also close enough to the town for lunch.
What a find, such a lovely little cottage and in the middle of no where.. The hot tub was great and we made full use of it was a great getaway and we will definitely go back. Thanks to the hosts as well
This cottage was fantastic and the owners were great too.. Very relaxing week even with a seven month old and a three year old. The outside area is so safe and my boy could play for hours. The fresh air definitely made them sleep. The hot tub was an added bonus. The kitchen equipment was amazing and having the washer dryer really helped with the babies clothes/bibs etc. We explored the area - red kites, elan valley, drove to the coast, train trip at Devils Bridge. All fantastic days out and worth doing. We even took the boys swimming at the local leisure centre on a wet day which has a fab warm pool. Thanks Sian for a great week in mid Wales. We hope to return.
We have just returned from a perfect family holiday here. The cottage is in a quiet location, surrounded by sheep fields. The garden is huge and has a children's play and luxury outdoor furniture. The hot tub was amazing, great fun for the kids and relaxing for the adults. Great that there was the wooden canopy over to protect from the weather. The cottage was immaculately clean, and the owner had even baked a lovely Welsh bread for us and left fresh milk in the fridge.
What an absolutely amazing cottage this is! The cottage is situated down it's own private drive where the only thing you can see or hear is the birds in the trees, sheep in the fields or the rabbits and squirrels that pop by the bottom of the garden! The cottage itself has everything you could ever need and more, beautifully decorated throughout and thoroughly clean! The hot tub is fantastic to sit and relax with a glass of wine looking over the valley and the garden is ideal for families with its large lawn area and climbing frame!
The setting for this cottage is superb.. Peaceful with lots of wildlife. Wonderful cottage with excellent facilities. Hot tub WOW. So many places to visit. Our second visit and will be back. Special mention for Sian a wonderful host.
Luxury cottage in rural setting,great base in which to explore the elan valley and coast,cottage had everything we needed and more ,the hot tub was bliss..
A little slice of Welsh countryside heaven.. We've never been so disappointed to leave at the end of a holiday! The cottage is beautifully kept and the children just loved the garden and play equipment. Mum and Dad were very pleased with the Hot Tub too. Just the perfect getaway and the area is packed with things to do, young or old. It's impossible to overstate just what a wonderful time we had and we will be back before very long! Thanks Sian, lovely to meet you.
It was not the best time of year to holiday as a lot of places do not open until April.. Area good. Owners very good and very helpful even in full lambing season.
Mr Rumsby, March 2017
Fabulous cottage in a lovely peaceful location.. The cottage is equipped with everything you could ever need and the owners are so friendly, nothing is too much trouble. Would definitely go back!
Well what can i say, from the moment i booked until we left, Sian looked after us
The farmhouse is one of the best we have ever stayed at, it is only 2 years old and has everything you need for a really relaxing holiday.
The location is superb only sheep to talk to, minutes from shops , pubs and take aways
The hot tub is fantastic covered for rainy days but open on each side
overall this is one of the best with brilliant owners

The property was finished to a high standard and was beautiful the added extra was having the gorgeous views. All in all we had a great week and would return for sure!
This cottage was situated in a great location to relax and unwind with family and friends. The location is quiet and secluded, with the only sign of life being the animals and occasional tractor. The accomodation has been beautifully updated with all the modcons (Dishwasher, Utility Room, Wifi etc.) and is well stocked with everything you would need for your stay. The owner is very friendly and made us feel welcome straight away. Within our party were three young children and the grounds were all enclosed within fences to keep them safe, there was also a really nice play area (with swings and slide) for the children. There is also a well maintained Jacuzzi which is great for relaxing after a long walk.

The cottage was finished to an impeccable standard, it was very clean and well stocked, we didn't want for anything! The view was stunning and it was lovely to be so secluded and peaceful. We would thoroughly recommend this cottage and hope to visit again ourselves.
