  • "It was very quaint and the single bed is only really suitable for a small child and not a teenager."

    Quite disappointed that the week following our stay was a lot less than what we paid for our stay. Not even the basics that we’ve found in many other properties, such as salt, pepper etc

  • "Parking outside the cottage was not easy…and a little dangerous."

    The outside garden area was lovely. The cottage was ideal for two.

  • "Lovely quirky cottage in picturesque countryside."

    All we needed for a comfortable stay. Owner was very helpful when we couldn’t get the tv to work.

  • "Had to remove cobwebs in most rooms."

    Cleaned front room windows inside and out, they had not been cleaned for months. My husband repaired the kitchen doors because they were loose and would not close properly. Drawers in bedroom dirty inside, I didn't put any clothes in them. The whole place needs better lighting and the amount of wires and extension leads were really unsightly. I knew the cottage was on a dangerous bend but did not understand why the outside facility to walk dog, hang clothes and supposedly relax was not not explained more clearly. It is a dangerous outside area and filthy!! For the amount of money we paid it was really dissapointing.

  • "This is a nice old building with associated quirks that come with this - eg sloping roof in the bedroom, we quickly got used to that!"

    Appreciated the velux windows in the double bedroom & stairwell, kept a good flow of air even when wet. Comfy beds, quiet at night = good sleep. Enjoyed wood burner on couple of cooler evenings. Some small things that would make it even better eg oven gloves, a small mirror in bedroom (need to take your own hairdryer which is fine as long as you know), avoid having sharp knives in cutlery tray as it is in a less well lit unit & there is a knife block with 3 decent knives by the window. As a previous review notes, cottage is on a sharp bend & definitely the easiest & safest way to park is to approach uphill from the Newcastle Emlyn direction. We have enjoyed our stay at Gerlan & it is in a lovely part of Wales.

  • "Cottage was on a bad corner, no walkways and speeding cars."

    Outside area was not attached to the cottage. Spiderweb's and dust everywhere. Bathroom smelt damp. All the cupboards in the kitchen were broken or hanging off their hinges. Washing machine was rusty and smelt really bad, no curtains up in either bedroom windows so my children were awake at the crack of dawn, no openable window in the tiny box room while a heatwave was going on. The lost goes on

  • "The host couldn't have done more for us."

    She was so welcoming and always checked in to see if we were having a good time there. Cottage was above and beyond what we expected so clean and homely. Would look to book again and recommend to friends and family..

    Loved the wood burner - great for dark winter evenings. The owner was very friendly, helpful and considerate. There were interesting places to visit and friendly locals. We had a very cosy Christmas break.

  • "It was a lovely cottage full of character with a half door that we loved."

    It had a cosy feel and having a log fire was ideal. It was well equipped with everything we needed. The garden is relaxing and has a nice forest view. All in all I would come again, and also recommend it.
