The whole experience was fantastic. The house was beautiful and met all of our needs. The owners were really helpful.
Mrs Bowles, Hounslow, April 2013
Cottage was homely and welcoming. Owner was very helpful, ensured that all our needs were catered for - we stayed over Christmas, cottage tastefully decorated. I have stayed in many holiday properties in the UK, this was by far the best. We celebrated a perfect family Christmas here. Thank you.
Mrs Little, New Westminster, December 2012
It was a lovely location, very peaceful and great for watching nature. The owners were very welcoming, helpful which made a great start to our holiday. Outstanding accommodation, a real pleasure. The views were amazing from the garden, which is private and tranquil.
Mrs Rouse, Gloucester, August 2012
The welcome, the stunning views, the location, the accomodation and the hospitality were all outstanding.
We couldn't have asked for anything more and definitely recommend Penrose Cottage to anyone wishing to visit Wales.
