  • "We enjoyed our stay."

    The holiday cottage met our expectations. We loved the atmosphere of 30’s in this house, and especially cosiness provided by open fireplace. Beds were comfortable. Kitchen would benefit from at least one genuinely sharp knife. :) And yes, we loved exclusivity of watching dogs working with sheep just outside of our windows.

  • "We are still on holiday here."

    But have to leave a review. This house is amazing. 1930s original décor, which we love. The artwork on the walls add to the character. Feel very relaxed in this house. Lovely well kept garden, beautiful scenery. The ancient churchyard is bigger than we thought and very interesting stories about the locals. Hope the owners get to see this review. Just want to say well done and don't change it. It's just perfect.

    Thank you for your encouraging review and we are thrilled that you are enjoying Glynteg's special charm and location. We hope to welcome you back again one day. Property Owner

    The only thing that lets the house down is the cleaners, there's dust and cobwebs everywhere i do have pictures, apart from that we had a good holiday

    We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay and agree that a house should be free from dust and cobwebs. We will ask our cleaning team to be more thorough. Property Owner

  • "The cottage was generally fine but rather dated."

    The furniture and fittings were not of the standard that you expect today. It reminded us of a french gite from25 years ago. Around the sink tiles needs cleaning and re- sealing. There is no dishwasher and limited work space for preparing food. The bedside light in one room has no socket. Simple to run an extension lead. The grass hadn't been cut for some time. Just all needs a bit of attention and updating, keeping the rural charm of the house and setting.

    Thank you for your feedback, and we are sorry that you were disappointed with some aspects of your stay. We have asked the management team to ensure the sink tile area is cleaned thoroughly and re-grouted. We will ask them to replace the extension lead that was usually under the bed to ensure all bedside lamps can be used. The gardener has been asked to to mow the lawns more regularly. Regrettably, The property is not advertised as having a dishwasher and so this is why this was not available to you at the time. Thank you again for your feedback. Please take care and stay safe.

The property

Bow Street 2.5 miles.

Glynteg is a much loved, characterful house resting in the beautiful and tranquil Welsh village of Llandre, which lies opposite a 15th century church and ancient holy well.

From the house you can admire views of the Cambrian Mountains or enjoy woodland walks, with the Welsh Coastal Path just a few miles away.

Located not far from the coast, this property is a perfect fit for a family who will delight in day trips to the seaside in Borth or Aberystwyth, but wants to stay in a peaceful area of the country.

Within the classic kitchen a woodburning stove provides a wealth of warmth as you get cooking using the essential appliances like the electric oven and hob, sit at the dining table in here atop the tiled floor while the food simmers.

Serve up your feast for a formal dinner within the dining room seating up to five people, and tuck in, with this room featuring an ornamental vintage fireplace.

For quiet evenings in after a busy day, relax in the sitting room on one of the sofas and enjoy a spot of TV, or simply enjoy each other's company with a glass of wine in hand in front of the cosy open fire.

Upstairs, find the bathroom where you can freshen up with either the bath or the shower over, as well as the basin, while the WC is separate next door.

Choose from three pleasant bedrooms to sleep in, either of the two doubles, or the single room which holds a trundle bed too, so it can be a twin on request.

Outside the property there’s a field for you to enjoy, you can watch the sheep grazing or observe the Red Kites flying overhead.

Venture into the neighbouring village of Bow Street for your amenities with a SPAR shop at hand, or dine out in the pub The Welsh Black Inn for a hearty meal.

Head to the coastal village of Borth to enjoy lovely days at the boutique cinema or the Blue Flag beach, alternatively go further south to the popular seaside resort town of Aberystwyth where you can find the University Arts Centre which is great for live theatre, art exhibitions and cinema.

Explore the Cambrian Mountains, with many routes and trails freely available, experience scenic views and far-reaching, wondrous landscapes here.

Glynteg is a lovely family home, a perfect base for a trip to west Wales.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £125.
