  • "We loved Delfryn but:- the house was dirty with cobwebs and dust."

    We could live with some of this but NOT in the kitchen. There was only half a toilet roll, very little kindling and no fire lighters when we arrived. The weather was cold and, although the heating was good, it did go off during the evenings and we had to keep turning it back on (perhaps a thermostat issue?). Finally the drive is VERY steep. We were worried that any snow and ice would strand our cars at the bottom. As it was we chose to speak to neighbours and park higher up. The situation with the drive should be clearly explained, especially to winter tenants.

  • "Good morning, had a lovely stay at delfryn, just a couple of things I would like to mention, firstly the lack of a freezer, whilst there is a fridge at the property, as a self catering property where people will eat in, a freezer would be a good addition to keep supplies from going off."

    Also whilst it is marketed as pet friendly, and I know the description does mention about the garden being steep and open, if you have dogs it is nice for them to run around as they would at home, but here you can't as sheep and cattle nearby.
