Previous visitors' comments about Plasauduon:
The cottage was really well located in the quaint and interesting town of Bishops Castle. We really liked the extra touches of the home made apple juice and marmalade.
Mrs Gilmore, Rochdale, August 2012
The cottage was warm and cosy, well situated in a charming small town full of lovely shops, pubs, cafes etc. People were super friendly - the cottage owners were very helpful and like old friends to us. It was fun to watch Morris dancing and have few walks in the amazing countryside. There was plenty of lovely small villages and towns to visit around the area. The cottage felt like home to us - it was hard to leave.

Great 'home from home' in a fantastic location. Could not fault the property. Owners left logs for fire, included all linen and even left a bottle of wine and delicious, homemade jam - just lovely.

A cosy, well equipped cottage in a lovely town.
