We've had lots of lovely comments from our guests - here's a selection.... We have also been lucky enough to be awarded the Sawdays accreditation as a special place to stay.
"2 dogs, 2 kids, 2 grown ups had a fantastic time revelling in the beauty of the Cambrians. Hafren forest and the walk to the source of the severn are a must and both dogs and kids enjoyed the walk. Hafod forest is also a must. We counted all 341 steps down and 383 steps up the Devil's Bridge Falls walkways and had a lovely afternoon of beachside fun in Aberystwyth. Vicky's pottery class is a must do - she is a gentle and wonderful teacher who gets the best out of everyone. We'd love to come back."
"A lovely week in a beautiful cottage, situated in a stunning location. The views from the cottage are 'to die for', the idyllic, peaceful and tranquil setting was just what we needed. Eating breakfast on the terrace was lovely - the walk from the cottage provided more superb views. The cottage was everything we wanted."
"We very much enjoyed our stay at the cottage with it's tranquil surroundings, plentiful walks, abundance of birdlife and lovely sunshine. Martha the dog had a good time too. Thank you for the tasty veggies and eggs - nice to taste some wholesome home-grown food. The cottage was v clean and tidy and we felt very comfortable. We return home feeling rested and rejuvenated."
"...The area as beautiful as we remembered - forests, hills, streams - excellent dog walking. Gribyn cottage a beautiful spot to access all this and a lovely place to call home for a week. So clean, tidy and wonderfully laid out with everything you need. So peaceful and remote. We felt safe, warm and cosy. Cottage v. practical for dogs as well. I wish all holiday lets were like this ie: even better than the photos! The personal touches were really appreciated - cake, milk, eggs, pottery, dog biscuits, etc"
"The setting of the cottage is straight out of a fairytale! Found the place to be even better than the photos ... Thoroughly enjoyed the pottery... Superb holiday! Everything we wanted and loved it."
"What a beautiful cottage, with beautiful views. We have had a lovely stay over a long weekend with great dog walks and space for our toddler to explore - he loved the dusk walk with the torch."
"Thankyou for a wonderful 3 days break. The cottage could not have been more perfect. Clean, cosy and a lovely homely feel. Everything you need, home from home. Thankyou Vicky and Tim for your hospitality. A beautiful spot."
"Thank you for a most splendid week spent with our grand children, aged 14 and 10. Interest and enjoyment has been plentiful for each of us - the animals, Powis Castle, beach, Welshpool railway and most of all the magnificent view from the cottage and welcoming hosts. Ran out of time for walking - see you again!"
"Thank you for a great weekend! Your cottage really lies in a beautiful part of Wales and we'd love to come back. The barn and surroundings exceeded our expectations and we would recommend this place to anyone wanting a relaxing break. Being able to sit outside on the deck enjoying the views was a great touch."
"Vicky and Tim thank you so much for a lovely stay. We had a really relaxed weekend. The views from the house are stunning and it is located in such an amazing spot in Wales. Perfect for a visit to Brecon Beacons or Snowdonia. We really enjoyed driving around discovering the area and had a really cosy evening with our little camp fire. We would definitely come back and recommend it to everyone."
"We loved our stay here - such beautiful views, cosy couches, amazingly cute animals. Thank you. We plan to come back and recommend it to others."
"Back from a very wet and windy weekend in the cottage. Despite the weather we had a wonderful time. The cottage is very pretty and the views are wonderful. Hope to go back again in the summer."
"This cottage was beautiful, with stunning views, welcoming host's and friendly animals. We loved our brief stay and only regreted not having longer. Vicky is an awesome potter and teacher and we loved having a lesson and making a mess! Thanks again guys"
"My friends and I wanted a girlie weekend away in comfortable accommodation and a memorable setting - Vicky's beautiful barn exceeded both expectations. It really is the most spectacular spot: ideal for long, rambly walks, leisurely lunches outside when the weather's right and cosy fireside chats when it's not. Crucial details: the whole place is impeccably clean; the beds are super comfortable; there's enough equipment in the kitchen to allow you to self-cater painlessly; and Tim and Vicky are relaxed, helpful and very kind hosts. "
"Gribyn Cottage was home for this family of four for three nights. The accommodation was very clean and spacious and had all you could wish for and great views, too. There was genuinely enough room for a family to kick about in and not need to sit on each other's laps. Being able to wander around the paddocks was a great asset when travelling with children and we send a special cuddle to Adrian and Bob. Thanks Vicky and Tim for making our stay so enjoyable, despite the weather!"
"The barn is so cute and cosy yet spacious and modern, and the king bed I must add was so comfortable, we had a great night sleep both times! ... the kitchen itself was very well equipped, we were able to cook homemade meals both nights with ease. There is a nice space to eat outside or a large dining table inside to choose from. Our short stay was a perfect peaceful break so thanks again Vicky (oh and for the cake!)"
"We had a great stay here. The barn has real character and the view is superb. We really enjoyed the location too which as a "lost world" feel. Thanks Vicky."
"Our time at this place was great! The landscape is beautiful, the owners are welcoming and kind, and their vegetables and eggs are delicious. We would definitely recommend it!"
"The Barn was wonderful, peaceful place to stay. I was staying with my parents and this place was perfect for us. The view from the Barn is absolutely stunning. Vicky has thought of everything to make guests feel welcomed and at home. I would recommend this lovely place to anyone travelling through this part of Wales."
"A perfect barn with a perfect view! A very clean and cosy place to stay. The beds are extremely comfortable, the kitchen is well equipped, the shower is powerful and the living room is perfect for those rainy days! "
