Trallwm Forest Cottages
Reviewed 2 July 2012

Stayed in Siskin 1 bedroom cottage for the weekend. It wasn't as isolated as we expected as it was quite near another cottage and it was situated near a road. My initial doubts were soon forgotten as it was still lovely and quiet and the road wasn't at all busy.
The cottage was well equipped and was spotlessly clean. The on site cycle routes were good and the cafe and its friendly member of staff was a welcome sight at the end of the blue mountain bike trail. The food in the cafe was lovely.
We really enjoyed our stay in the cottage and appreciated the tranquility. We will be returning to one of the bigger cottages with both kids and the dogs.

Were lucky enough to have chosen to stay at Trallwm Forest,after reading the great reviews on Tripadvisor.Despite typical January weather the the quality of the accommodation made the Kestrel cottage,with its log fire,a perfect choice for a peaceful break.Nothing had been overlooked in terms of equiptment in the cottage.Cozy,comfortable and idyllic would best summarise.The hosts were on hand to ensure that everything that could be done,to make the Trallwm experience perfect,was done.Great walks in the forest together with a variety of interesting pubs a short drive away made this a memorable and enjoyable break!.

Room Tip: Kestrel,very cozy-well equipped-good signal on tv for the footy!!

I stayed at Trallwm with my girlfriend in Magpie cottage for 3 nights in January 2012. We arrived to a very clean, characterful cottage in the heart of a beautiful, picturesque forest. This was exactly what we were looking for - peace and quiet and some time away from the hustle and bustle! I had ordered the local breakfast hamper which contained everything you'd need including some lovely homemade bread. We met the owner Mary on our first afternoon and were made to feel very welcome. The walks around the surrounding hills were fantastic, and whilst there aren't shops for miles, it was nice to have the on site cafe to grab a cheeky toastie for a lunchtime refuel!

All together Trallwm was exactly what we were looking for - space and tranquility in a beautiful setting. We will definitely be returning.

We have just returned home from a 4 night stay at Trallwm Forest Cottages and we stayed in 'Kestrel', which is a semi-detached cottage.

We had pre-ordered the breakfast hamper, which was waiting for us on our arrival and had several breakfasts from this hamper....I would highly recommend it.

The cottage is cozy....not overly luxurious but it had everything we needed for our stay. Bed was comfy and there is plenty of heating for the cold months and a good supply of logs for the wood-burning stove. Everything was clean and linen/towels were fresh. Lying in bed at night gazing at the stars through the skylight was a particular treat!

Mary greeted us on the morning after our arrival to make sure we had settled in ok. I really can't understand why a previous reviewer had negative feedback on Mary, we found her to be very polite and friendly.

Walks: We did the blue and black trails, which were actually mountain bike trails but fine for walking. The black trail took us through gorgeous forest to the top of a hill with fantastic 360 views.

Things to watch out for: There is no mobile signal. If you are tall, you need to watch out for the low beams in the bathroom and bedrooms. You really are off the beaten track, so stock up with supplies unless you are happy to drive the 4 miles into the nearest village to go shopping. Take some extra firelighters with you for the wood-burning stove if you are going to be there for more than 2 or 3 nights.

We fully understood that we would be in the middle of a working forest and expected some disruption but there was none. We had peace, quiet and tranquility for the whole of our stay.

If you want to get away from it all in a beautiful setting, come to Trallwm Forest Cottages.
We'll definitely be back.

We first discovered Trallwm Forest Cottages 3 yrs ago and we are about to visit for our 3rd time as we really enjoy the beautiful setting these cottages have to offer. Our first stay was in the Siskin, although I would say the cottages are quite basic they have everything you need for an enjoyable stay. Our second was in the Magpie again a really lovely location next to a stream. We will be staying in the Tawny Owl in November and know this will be just as good as the other cottages we have stayed in. I think the important thing to remember about these cottages is not only the stunning scenery, the peace and quiet they offer but also the price, they are very reasonable compared with other cottages in forest locations. We would highly recommend a stay at Trallwm Forest Cottages.

Having read one of the reviews on here I was a bit worried as we had already booked 'Tawny Owl' for a week - however we found it to be perfect! We were aware this was a working woodland so expected some disruption - but during the whole week we actually saw one land rover go past! Apart from that (and two people on mountain bikes) we didn't see another soul – it was perfect isolation and peace.
There is no TV reception - a real blessing we didn’t miss it at all. The children actually played outside and made camps in the woods, we walked miles, the area is outstandingly beautiful. The mountain roads compare with the lake district – but with no people!! We drove the Devils Staircase and took the mountain road to Aberystwyth – highly recommended.
I already miss my morning coffee outside, overlooking the forest and the mountains from the cottage in perfect isolation with only the birds for company. If you want to get away from it all and find some peace and solitude – this is the place to be.
The cottage itself is well equipped, clean and comfortable. If there was a down side it would be the midges – take insect repellent!
This is a fantastic base for exploring Mid Wales – I had no idea the area was so beautiful – a well kept secret. See photo’s attached 

Thoroughly recommend the cottage, charming and well fitted, no phone reception or internet access so no excuse not to relax. No DAB reception but we enjoyed the cricket throught through Sky connection. The location is beautiful, being sited in the woods next to a stream. You can walk from here or drive out to find others, we did both. All are worth it, go to the tea rooms and watch the birds feeding whilst recovering after a good walk. Suggest all have sufficient anti mozzy cream!
Imagine it will be very cozy in the winter, we couldn't find an excuse to light the stove!
We will be back.
