“Idyllic getaway!”
Reviewed 1 October 2017 for a stay in September 2017

We have just stayed in the delightful Shepherd's Hut at Wild meadow. The hut is at the top of a hill with gorgeous views of the valley below. The hut itself is so cosy, with a small wood burner and a comfy bed and chairs. The outdoor kitchen, a rustic log building, had everything we could possibly want. Our hosts accommodated our every need, including provisions for breakfast the next day. There is an Eco toilet, hot gas shower, an outdoor fire if you wish to cook outside. A gorgeous hilltop meadow to explore with fruit and vegetables (when in season) you can help yourself to and swings on oak trees! Although both in our 60s we played like children on the swings! It was a delight. If you want to give your brain a rest, switch off from the stresses of life, I high recommend Wild Meadow.

“Wonderful New Year”
Reviewed 9 January 2017 for a stay in January 2017

A beautifully built and presented cottage that is a stone's throw from Presteigne. Yet, situated in it own meadow, it offers a wonderful feeling of seclusion to help you unwind and relax.
We had 5 of us staying in the cottage and two further relatives round daily. The cottage accommodated us all easily and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend a stay there.

“Heaven is at Wild Meadow Shepherd's Hut Presteigne”
Reviewed 15 October 2016 for a stay in October 2016
1
person found this review helpful

We have arrived home today after a few wonderful days of stepping back in time, being almost totally off grid at the top of Wild Meadow, with views across the fields and the Cottage below us. We were warmly welcomed by Andrea, who made sure that we knew how to 'use' the compost loo, were ok about lighting the wood burner - Maxi was made a fuss off and then she left us to it, having helped carry our belongings up the hill to the hut. The hut is fabulous, the bed is so comfy neither of us wanted to get up in the morning! Maxi soon settled in to his new portable bed and toasting himself in front of the wood burner, the whole meadow was his to play and bounce around in during the day - lighting is supplied via a solar panel, the compost loo was surprisingly comfy to use, cooking in the special lean-to is an adventure, gas burners and a very efficient grill too - Andrea had supplied us with a few essentials ready and waiting for us in the fridge - that was a lovely touch and the delicate flowers in the hut and in the kitchen were the icing on the cake! As there was no one in the coattge Andrea offered the use of the shower, which we though was very kind of her, but we had already been brave and washed in the open bathroom! A throw back from our childhood upbringings. There are 2 swings magically hidden and a fruit garden too - the apples are soooo sweet and I think there are quite a few raspberry's less now after our visit. The place despite being at the top of the hill, is so serene and quiet, today was the first time that Maxi barked and that was because of the hunt passing by, The time has gone all too quickly and I am so glad I found Wild Meadow - it was just what two weary souls needed and the fact that our rather bouncy big black dog was made to feel very welcome too, made it a special time for all of us. The Radnorshire Arms in Presteigne serve the most delicious food if you don't want to cook, and the shops are quaint and not the run of the mill ones you find in some towns.

“Absolutely Stunning Place to Stay”
Reviewed 26 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

We have visited Presteigne for a number of years staying in various cottages while we visit relatives. Wild Meadow Cottage is without doubt our favourite.
The property has been self built and has a lovely open feel to it. We could not have been more happy during our stay. The kids loved the cottage, we did and so did our elderly relatives. The inclusion of a ground floor double room and shower room / w.c means it is suitable for all ages. The master bedroom is a joy with it's own sofa and balcony to escape onto.
From what we can tell no expense has been spared and the beds are all top quality facilitating a good nights rest for all. Downstairs sofas can seat all comfortably and the kitchen is great to cook in.
The location offers a "little House on the Prairie" feel despite being so close to Presteigne centre. You really feel your out in the middle of nowhere. The cottage sits in a field surrounded by orchards and vegetables and add to the feel that this cottage transports you to another time and place.
The owners we wonderfully friendly upon arrival and departure and their enthusiasm for guests to enjoy their stay is genuine and much appreciated.
We can not wait to get back there and will be booking soon. This place is so good I was tempted not to write a review but that would not sit right with me. After years or very boring and poorly equipped cottages we are so glad to have Wild Meadow Cottage there for us.
