“Absolutely fantastic”
Reviewed 14 November 2011

We approached this with some trepidation because of the previous reviews. We have stayed at another property owned by the same person and that was a delight to stay in. We could see that the bad reviews were quite old and it transpired that they originate from the previous owner who did not appear to run a very good service. The farmhouse was great to stay in. We had a large group and everything we needed was there. The owners have made sure that the best quality furnishings have been used. The kitchen was fantastic for a person who likes to cook, with good utensils and pans. The décor is of a very high standard and one of the best we have stayed in. Everything was spotlessly clean and well kept. We broke a glass on the first night and informed the owner. It was not a problem and the cleaner replaced it the next morning. We were quite impressed. The owner made us feel very welcome and nothing was too much trouble. It was certainly worth a visit.

We booked the Farm and the Gatehouse with 12 of us staying between both properties. The Farmhouse seats 12 so we were able to all eat together. Both properties have been refurbished to the highest standards and the new owners deserve a pat on the back. The free use of the facilities at Plas Talgarth was a huge bonus, with the use of both the indoor and outdoor pools.

If you like quality then this place is for you. Ignore the old reviews and book it. If the Farmhouse is up to the same standard as the Gatehouse, which i really believe it is, you will not be dissapointed if you stay at either.
We stayed at the gatehouse which has 2 bedrooms. The slate floor downstairs screamed expensive (and made me very very jelous), the kitchen was beautifully done and very well equipped with quality almost too good for holiday rentals, the plates were Wedgewood which made me frightened of breaking them. The linen was all clean and fresh and again obviously expensive. The bathroom with its spa bath was brilliant and after climbing the suposedly moderate slopes in the nearby forestry commission walks i spent quite a few hours in the bath, it was absolute heaven. The shower was quiet and didn't disturb those in the bedroom upstairs, the utility room was well equipped and the provision of the basic household products ment we could actually use the dishwasher without having to specifically buy tablets and wash and dry clothes so that i didn't have to take it all home dirty. Again these little things scream quaility and thought by the owners.
On the occassions when we had cold days we put on the heating for a short time and found that we hade to turn it off again as the radiators were so good. This place really changed my find about properties that are all electric as the heating was brilliant and the hob was so quick and efficient and easy to clean which is a clear bonus when on hols.
The hoover was a Dyson Ball which i desperately wanted to bring home and the airer ment i could hang the waterproofs up to dry in the utility.
The owners have done a fantastic job of making this a wonderful place to spend time and the practical considerations really made it less stressful for me.
I have to put in some negatives to balance out the review and make it absolutely fair but if i'm honest they weren't really negatives to us and we would definately stay again, in fact I didn't really want to leave it was so nice.
The Gatehouse does not have a secure area for dogs, the Farmhouse does, although both properties are set in a secure garden with gates to the front. The only problem was that the people staying att he Farmhouse, despite being advised that we had a dog with us, repeatedly left the gates open which ment that we couldn't let the dog out off of the lead. Not the owners fault i know but it did impact on our holiday as we were unable to leave the doors open or sit out by the pond without tieing the dog to a tree which wasn't what we wanted really, poor hound.
The shower screen leaked a bit but we cured it by stuffing a flannel into the gap, but only after I had managed to soak everything on the floor. Left a note of this in the housekeeping book so hopefully they will do something about it. The housekeeping book is a great idea to let the cleaners and the owners know about any problems.
This property is right next to a road and a railway line. The railway line didn't impact really as it isn't busy and the trains are litterally a couple of carriages long so they come and go very quickly. The road cannot be described as busy by my everyday standards but it is a busy road for Wales. This didn't bother me either but it may if you are a very light sleeper.
The bed in the downstairs bedroom was very comfortable and we slept very well in it, it is just a shame it's not a kingsize as a double was a little small for us.
The bedroom upstairs is definately better as a twin as the person who sleeps on the right of the bed cant get out when it is set up as a kingsize but our friends made no complaint and they were very happy with the quality of the bed.
The lounge area was a little small, or so i thought when we arrived, but I very quickly became comfortable on the fabulous leather sofa in front of the TV with freeview and DVD player at the end of a busy day.
I am a snob and when I go away I want better than I have at home and can honestly say that we got just that at Panteidal Farm.
We are genuinely pleased that we booked the Gatehouse and can't wait to go back and try the Farmhouse with some more friends.
