Four of us sisters stayed here for a week in early May to celebrate a birthday. We found it to be the perfect, traditional cottage we were looking for: comfortable beds, well-stocked kitchen, lots of period charm, nothing too modern, warm fireplace stocked with lots of wood and coal. Add to that the stunning views—simply incomparable—and we had a place we didn’t want to leave. We explored Montgomery and its castle, visited Bunner’s store, had a cream tea at the Joy Cafe (excellent!), toured Powis Castle, climbed the ruins of Dolforwyn Castle, and visited Devil’s Bridge and Strata Florida—all within easy driving distance. The small lane that leads to Pencaenion land is scarcely traveled, and gunning our car up the long, winding driveway to the cottage produced shrieks and cries of terror from the back seat (though on subsequent days they got very used to the steep climb). We appreciated the option to have bedding supplied, as we were coming from overseas. The property is obviously well cared for and loved. We felt it a privilege to be able to stay, and were doubly grateful for record-breaking warm, sunny weather. We would be glad to return at any time. Jenny was quick to respond to any questions and was a great hostess.
