Changes in personal circumstances meant we had no one place to enjoy Christmas together and this was perfect. There was room for everyone to do just as they wanted and the galleried landing was ideal for the boys wanting to watch their own DVDs.

This was one of the most relaxing holidays we have had. Knighton Gorges is full of mystery and the history is facinating, but it also gives you the peace and quiet you need. It was one of the cleanest rental properties we have stayed in. It was spacious and had every facility you could want. The children adored the sheep and freedom of such a huge garden. A five star property and five star holiday. I really think there should be more photos of the property on your website, both inside and out, as it doesn't truly reflect the stunning property that it is. Cottage Rating: 5 Stars

From the outside Knighton Gorges looked a beautiful property unfortunately when you get inside it was very disappointing I wish I could say no expense had been spared alas it was the opposite. 5 odd Mugs between 8 people, plastic potato masher no roasting tin etc. Children enjoyed the space Cottage Rating: 3 Stars

Knighton Gorges is owned by people who don't care about it, it's unloved and it was dirty which is a shame as it could be brilliant. It needs more showers, updated bathrooms and kitchen, then it would be worth the money Cottage Rating: 2 Stars

What an excellent family holiday home. Plenty of space internally and externally for people to spread out, play games and have good barbecues.

Changes in personal circumstances meant we had no one place to enjoy Christmas together and this was perfect. There was room for everyone to do just as they wanted and the galleried landing was ideal for the boys wanting to watch their own DVDs. The dog also loved her stay. Cottage Rating: 5 Stars

This was one of the most relaxing holidays we have had. Knighton Gorges is full of mystery and the history is facinating, but it also gives you the peace and quiet you need. It was one of the cleanest rental properties we have stayed in. It was spacious and had every facility you could want. The children adored the sheep and freedom of such a huge garden. A five star property and five star holiday. I really think there should be more photos of the property on your website, both inside and out, as it doesn't truly reflect the stunning property that it is. Cottage Rating: 5 Stars
