A Powys holiday cottage has been recognised as one of the best in the UK at a recent awards.

1 Sarnwen Cottages, a semi-detached holiday home in Four Crosses, was named winners in Sykes Holiday Cottages’ Sykes Stars programme after receiving glowing guest feedback.

The property has been a success ever since owner Kath Comerford first started offering it to holidaymakers in 2021.

Guests have praised its picturesque location and well-equipped interior, with the cottage home to a woodburning stove and patio area which is ideal for dining al fresco in the summer months. 


“It’s a big responsibility when people choose to spend their precious time off at your holiday home and I always want things to be perfect for my guests,” said Kath.

“This makes being named a Sykes Star really encouraging and I look forward to welcoming many more guests for years to come.”

The Sykes Stars programme aims to recognise holiday homeowners from across the UK that have achieved perfect feedback scores from guests consistently in the last year – with 1 Sarnwen Cottages being named amongst 31 other businesses in the UK.

James Shaw, Managing Director of Sykes Holiday Cottages, said: “We love to showcase the incredible mix of holiday lets available in the UK and those that feature on our Sykes Stars are some of the very best. 

“We know just how committed these owners are to providing fantastic breaks for their guests and it’s great to be able to recognise this. 

“Our winners make an invaluable contribution to the UK holiday let market and we can’t wait to see what’s in store for them in the future, especially as Wales continues to be a thriving staycation hotspot.”
