Guest Reviews


    • “Beautiful location......peace and quiet with amazing views”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “We had a wonderful week in this cottage. Something here for everyone of all ages. The location is stunning and 'going home' up the track made the end of each day trip special. So many wonderful places to visit - we managed to fit in caves; mines - gold, tin and coal; Welsh heritage sites and castles. Equally, if you wanted a quiet, relaxing holiday, away from it all (but with internet and Sky!) this would be perfect. Many super walks right on the doorstep. The cottage is very well furnished and would be a delight in summer or winter. We were made to feel very welcome and were given a wonderful welcome pack on arrival. I would highly recommend this home-from-home and we can't wait to visit again.”

We really enjoyed our beds, very comfortable! Lovely feel of the garden and the area around the cottage, great view. Lots to do even in the winter time. Really enjoyed our stay and would like to come again!”
