Llanwrtyd Wells, Powys, Wales
Kilsby Cottage is located in Llanwrtyd, close to Llanwrtyd Wells in Mid Wales - the smallest town in Britain and at the centre of one of the last remaining truly unspoilt areas in the UK. Kilsby Cottage provides high standard (5 star facilities) self-catering holiday cottage accommodation for up to 4 adults. A travel-cot and/or fold-up bed can be provided for additional children.

The cottage is adjacent to Kilsby Country House which is set in 2.5 acres of gardens and woodland.

All you could wish for in a cosy cottage; well equipped, warm and welcoming. Friendly and helpful hosts. Beautiful location - secluded, with wonderful views and lots of local wildlife, yet within easy distance of all sorts of interesting activities and attractions. Highly recommended.

Management response:

Thank you so much for this lovely review. It was a pleasure to meet you both and I do hope we'll see you here again sometime. Sue

I just wanted to let the World know that the number one place to stay is Kilsby - the best hosts - Sue and Chris, nothing was too much trouble - just ask. Great views, the best breakfast ever. Lots to do and see - you must stay 10/10.

Management response:

Thank you for this lovely review. I'm so pleased you enjoyed your visit to Kilsby and I hope we'll see you here again soon.
