  • "We had such a lovely stay."

    The farmhouse is beautiful, the surroundings breathtaking and the owners very helpful. Our only issue as a party of 12 was only having 1 shower. Totally understand how it might be difficult in an old property with old plumbing but a second shower would have made a huge difference. We will definitely be back. Thank you.

    Only minor downside was that he Wi-Fi was not available at the time of our stay, but credit to the hosts they did come and explain that there was a problem and the engineer was not coming to sort it until after our stay. With that aside I would definitely consider another stay at the Farmhouse, Lon Las Cottages a very big thank you to you all.

  • "The cottage is a beautiful farmhouse in the most amazing setting!"

    It was absolutely perfect for us as two families with a small child coming together. If you are looking for a brand new house with no dust in sight it's not for you. This is a working farm and an old property so that has to be taken into account. If you want somewhere to relax that is comfortable and feels like a real home in a beautiful setting, get it booked! The family who own the property are really helpful and happy to answer any questions. We will definitely go back.

  • "The owners were very friendly and helpful."

    The property was a lovely rustic old farmhouse and the outside was in good repair, on a very beautiful farm with amazing views and walks around the area, the play area was great for the kids. On arrival the farmhouse was clean and had plenty of cutlery, dishes etc... However, unfortunately there was quite a few things wrong whilst we were on holiday... No hotwater in the ensuite at all, only one person could have hot water in the morning if someone had a shower in the main bathroom. Light wasn't working in kitchen, but was quickly fixed by the owners, on our last day the electric kept going off, the microwave had no numbers on to tell us how long to put it on for, the remote control had worn off the writing too, so no idea how to use the that. No instructions left to use any of the equipment in the property, such as washing machine, dryer, dishwasher etc... The hob only worked on the left hand side. We weren't able to use the hot tub very much due to the weather, which is not the owners fault, but perhaps for future use they could put a covering of some sort over the pergola so people could still enjoy the hot tub in the rain etc... Also the fairy lights over the hot tub on pergola didn't work, would have been a nice touch on the evenings if they had worked, when we were able to use it. Also the flies and wasps were quite an issue, I had to buy a fly swatter as it got so bad everytime we opened the door to let some air in the conservatory as there was no windows. But being on a farm this was expected.

  • "Before we arrived we were told the farmhouse had to have extra time for cleaning."

    On arrival noticed several areas in the farmhouse that obviously had not been cleaned at all and pointed out some of these to the people running the complex. In fact some areas had obviously not been cleaned for some time. We had problems in the en suite with the hot water to the basin. the setting for the farmhouse is lovely,and everything else met our needs. On reflection another shower would have been useful.

  • "An amazing house, with so much space for a big group."

    The play park and games room is a godsend for groups with young children, and the conservatory is a brilliant space to relax in (rain or sunshine). The addition of a hot tub was greatly appreciated by the parents in the group, even in the thunderstorms on the last night. Providing towels, bed linen and having the space to feed the whole group both inside and out was extremely useful. Katy and Jamie were extremely accommodating throughout the week.

  • "The property itself is impressive, and gives a lot of space for a large group - which we were (10 people, 2 children)."

    However, there's only one shower between 12 people! There is a bath in the en suite but it doesn't have an over-the-head shower. We liked the hot tub, that felt like a great feature. But it recommends you need to shower before entering, so maybe an outside shower could be feasible in the outdoor space. Kitchen is good, big, modern and well kitted out. We enjoyed the outdoor space, it is really well set up for this and the playground is a good touch for keeping the kids entertained. The downstairs bedroom with bunk beds was very musty and had a smell of mould in it. There's very good parking, often this is a problem with other properties in mid/North Wales. Overall, it's a good house, but feels like it needs a bit of modernising in places to be able to cater for the larger groups?

  • "Although a little hard to find (it is well signposted if you know where to look and you will see them once you've been) everyone did manage to find it."

    The farmhouse was the perfect venue for our family gathering. It was very spacious and between the large patio, games room, kids outdoor play area and spacious lounge. Nobody got in anybody's way: it met with the requirements of all generations. The addition of the hot tub this year was a big hit, although I am not a big fan myself. Nothing was too much trouble for the manager who lived in a cottage across the courtyard; he was always in hand and very helpful. Instantly fixing the hot water when it stopped and sorting one of the jets that were not working on the hot tub as soon as it was brought to his attention. The house itself was beautifully old with the added modern conveniences not taking away from the charm. The only minor point we have is there was only one shower and that was over one of the bath tubs. All in all, everyone thoroughly enjoyed the location and the facility. I would highly recommend it to anyone looking concidering it. Mick.

    Really enjoyed the space and comfort and because the children were so happy it gave the adults plenty of time to relax. Lovely quiet pond at the entrance where we caught tench and roach ghost carp eluded us though but we will definately return to have another go.

    Only small negatives was the slow internet signal and the farm track leading to the house was uneven and a bit hard on the cars, especially lower ones due to raised ridge which banged the exhausts.

  • "Fabulous farmhouse away from it all."

    Well equipped kitchen, towels & bedding. Plenty of space and superb dining room. Play area for children was excellent though the little slide needs some attention. Games room would have been useful in wet weather. Instructions to find the place and recycling could be improved. Fresh eggs and veg were not available. I never recommend as everyone has different requirements. It was a bit of a drive to sandy beaches but we knew that before we went. The nearest pub seems to have closed and become a guest house. ( Ty Lon? ) Pond was excellent for fishing. For those who want a rural retreat, off the beaten track, this place is ideal and very good value for money.

  • "This is a lovely property for family or group get togethers."

    The rooms have very comfortable beds and are easily configurable to accommodate different sizes of family unit; there is an excellent stock of linen, towels, crockery and glasses. The property would benefit from some larger serving bowls, baking sheets for pizza or baked potato cooking, a serviceable vegetable peeler and some Bar - B - Q implements. Such additions would greatly enhance the ease of family eating but did not significantly detract from our enjoyment of the property. The games room was well used by us and everyone from young to old enjoyed the facilities. Internet was slow and only suitable for e mails and did not work for half the holiday. Compensated to some extent for by a full Sky Service on a large TV, a DVD player and a good library of DVD's in the games room. When approaching, it may be worth advising guests that it is a long approach drive which increasingly becomes a farm track; need to persevere.

Conservatory with wood burner also sporting two sofas most comfortable, spent most of my time in here when not out, eating or sleeping. has a big table and seating for 8/10 ish without a squeeze. upstairs, most comfortable I thought the beds were just fine as beds go, which is somewhat subjective etc. headroom is on the low side caught my head twice on doorways i'm only 5-11 you have been warned. Fishing pond back down the lane is very much worth bringing some fishing gear for, over a 7 day stay two of us managed to land 70 odd fish mostly common & mirror carp and some small tench, most of the carp were 1/2 to 1 lb or so, we did manage to connect to and land several larger fish in the 6-8 lbs range and one bigger common of 13-15 lbs approx. larger fish were taken on ledger rig into middle of the pond however several of the larger fish also readily responded to float methods at short range.

Lanlas Country Cottages

Aberaeron 3 miles. Situated on the owner’s 130-acre organic farm in beautiful rolling countryside, down a single lane farm track of about 0.5 miles, these wonderful holiday cottages are a perfect rural retreat, with fabulous views of the Aeron Valley. Just three miles from the scenic Welsh coastline, whose sandy beaches stretch for miles in both directions, these cottages offer four star-rated, beautifully presented accommodation, each with an enclosed private lawned garden with a barbecue and patio area. There is also a large shared lawn and a children’s play area, plus a games room with a log fire, pool table, table tennis and games console, allowing you to join in all the fun with the other guests and make new friends. Take a stroll down to the owners’ fishing lakes for a spot of quiet time, or enjoy breathtaking woodland walks and National Trust footpaths from the doorstep, which once belonged to the Llanerchaeron estate. The Farmhouse stands proud at the top of the courtyard, while The Stables and Mill Cottage form part of a three-cottage stone barn conversion at the side. Each is superbly presented and equipped, whilst still retaining many charming character features including open beams and stone walls. You may wish to spend the whole of your holiday here enjoying the private fishing ponds, fresh eggs and homegrown vegetables from the farm, along with the resident chickens and sheep, but from the doorstep you can also walk down to, and along, the River Aeron, join country cycling routes (the properties are part of the Walkers and Cyclists Welcome schemes), or just relax and enjoy watching the Red Kites and other wild birds overhead. The NT café, house and gardens of Llanerchaeron are a five-minute walk or short drive away. The local area offers picturesque coastal towns with shops, tea rooms, pubs and, of course, beaches (many of which are dog-friendly). For a secluded seaside stroll, or to try some surfing, then pop along to the sheltered bay at Aberarth, a hidden gem. The local area is bursting with activities, from horse riding and golf to boat trips and beach days, so you’re certain to find something to suit all ages. With so much to see and do on-site and in the surrounding area, these cottages are the perfect choice for a tranquil Welsh break.
