From the moment we walked through the door to the final sad goodbye this has been an incredible stay where we wanted for nothing. Every detail has been considered and ticked all our boxes. Thank you Caroline for giving us an opportunity to experience a true Grand Design!

Amazing view with scenery that changed from day to day with the weather. Two fabulous circular walks and plenty to inspire just sitting looking out of the window. Why go anywhere else. A great venue.
Thank you Caroline

After careful consideration during our stay we have come to the conclusion that….yes we’ll take it!! When can we move in permanently??
Days 1- and 5-6 best views ever. Days 3-4 no view whatsoever – Welsh mists descended. Still very atmospheric but we did manage to drag ourselves away to visit the following which we enjoyed and would recommend –
Offa’s Dyke: we parked on a great spot near ///including.craft.fond and walked up to the Old Racecourse.
Lake Vernwy and Riwagor Waterfall (sign says trail closed but either the trail or the diversion are fine).
Gregynog – lovely woodland walks and bee aviary
Just wondering the local lanes is fascinating – plenty of wildlife to enjoy
We also recommend driving done and lane that says ‘not suitable for HGV’s, especially if you don’t have a 4x4 and it’s been chucking it down…my heart rate monitor asked if I was alright and suggested calling a paramedic. My wife thought this was hilarious!!
Thanks Caroline for building such an ambitious home and then sharing it with us! It’s also saved a trip to The Institute of Ocular Microsurgery in Barcelona – it pales into insignificance in comparison to Rest on the Hill!

We have had an absolutely lovely time here at Rest on the Hill. The house and the surroundings have been just what we wanted and needed for our relaxing family holiday to celebrate a 40th birthday. The view is just breath taking and amazing and we were lucky for the sun to be shining so it was perfect to sit outside (with a blanket!) and enjoy a glass of fizz and the view in the peace and quiet.
Caroline has been extremely accommodating and the bottle of bubbly on arrival and all the extra comforts have been perfect. We hope to return in the future.

Rest on the Hill is the most amazing place we have ever stayed - the views are stunning and the house has a beautiful finish throughout. The photos do not do it justice! If we were to design our dream holiday home this would be it – absolutely beautiful. Caroline is such a thoughtful host and went to great trouble to ensure our daughter`s 12th Birthday stay was really special. We so appreciated the decorations, homemade cake and bubbly on arrival (and the fact that the house is pet friendly was a bonus).
Everything about this property is wonderful- Caroline has thought of everything you could need and more and enjoying the views and facilities in January only made us want to return in later months to see how the views change with the seasons.
On a practical level the town and several supermarkets are a ten minute drive away, so although it feels like you are away from the crowds, everything needed is nearby.
Thanks again Caroline, Belinda, Craig and Poppy Darby

What an amazing place to spend New Year and welcome in 2022. We arrived in thick fog and the house still managed to awe us…and then in the morning when we woke up to the incredible view….well we just haven’t tired of it and are soaking up every last minute until we have to leave.
Huge thankyou for sharing your beautiful house Caroline – we have really appreciated it. We have been lucky with the weather and walked every day – stunning walks but the cup of tea with the view when we got home was def the best bit.
Hope to return and thank you Caroline and Penny the dog. We feel totally spoilt.
19-22 December 2021
The beautiful view is the perfect setting for a relaxing and restful break. We had a wonderful time and look forward to returning in the future. Thank you for a warm welcome and ensuring that our stay was a special one.

We really enjoyed our rest in ‘Rest on the Hill’. Such a calm tranquil place providing us with the prefect time out to grieve a recent bereavement. The views are stupendous and we were lucky to get snow on the hills and clear starry skies. The house has everything you could need and certainly has the Wow factor. Thank you for a great stay.
15-18 November 2021
Wow! What a beautiful place to stay; and the view did not disappoint. Thank you for thinking of so many small details to make the stay even more special.

Thank you for the fabulous, incredibly comfortable and relaxing stay. Simon never wants to go anywhere twice but he is already planning the next visit. We will miss the stunning views.

Such a beautiful house. We’ve felt so comfortable here. And the views…!
Hope to see you again.

Thank you yet again.
Our fourth visit to Rest on the Hill and it still has that ‘WOW’ factor. We have so wanted, over the last eighteen months, to come back but due to covid etc. Hoping it is not going to be that long next time!
Weather has been kind to us and despite not being able to get out and walk due to our elderly Jack Russell, Sally, the view makes up for it.
Again, Caroline, thank you for being the perfect host and making us feel so welcome.

The house is a WOW from the first moment you open the front door – a view of the future as well as the Welsh mountains. Of the many ecological merits we were impressed by the rainwater harvesting system – soft water for bathing or showering in.
We have not stayed in a holiday house where the owner has given more thought to providing for the needs and wants of the guests. The soft towels are particularly welcome after that shower!
What doesn’t work so well was the lighting in the front room – if you wanted to site and read the lighting was too bright or too little. ( The reading standard lamp in the study is always movable if you didn’t want to take advantage of the separate quiet room, from Caroline)
Thank you Caroline.

We had the most incredible time here. We were in awe of this house from the minute we pulled into the drive! So many thoughtful details, it was even better than we thought and we can’t thank you enough Caroline. We hope to be back again and would recommend to anyone.

Just prefect. A wonderful break. Loved the house and breathtaking views. Would recommend The Barley Mow@ Trefonen. Really friendly staff and walkable – Sunday roast amazing value.
Thank you Caroline

A lovely place to stay and relax. It has given us lots of ideas to incorporate into our own home. It was a real good short break and we will book again.
