  • "Lovely place."

    Very comfortable. hot tub a bonus. Would recommend if you want a relaxing week away.

  • "Absolutely loved our stay, the accommodation was perfect for two couples (and a dog) looking to relax."

    The weather was awful so the undercover hot tub was perfect and lots of little extras like milk and bacon were a nice touch! Only downside was the wood provided was damp so couldn't get a fire going, however it wasn't needed as it was toasty at all times. A visitors book would have been nice for tips from others on where to eat locally, pubs etc. but overall a great stay and we would definitely book again! Thanks

    The place is beautiful, the hosts are so welcoming and will help with anything and the hot tub is an absolute bonus! I can’t fault a thing! We took our friends with us this time, plus 2 babies and a dog! Will be back again next year! Thank you so much!!!

  • "Amazing visit, hot tub was wonderful at the end of a busy day visiting all that Wales has to offer, so much to do within 1 hours drive of the area, the cabin is so pieceful and couldn't ask for anything more, and when we did ask for extra towels the owner brought them straight over."

    Can't wait to come back.

  • "Lovely cottage with everything you need."

    We used as a base as tried to fit in lots over the three days we were there. Nice beaches nearby, car required to make the most of the area. The ONLY thing I would add to the property is a mop and only because of the hot tub - although to be fair, there may have been one and I just didnt see it :) We booked last minute and we had a really great time x

    The only downside is trying to safely drive out on a bend with limited vision to the right.

  • "The accomodation was very clean, well equipped and comfortable."

    Location was great for activities around Aberystwyth. Hot tub was lovely and in its own private area. The owner welcomed us when we arrived and made sure we had firewood for the log burner. Would recommend and would stay again if visiting the area again.

  • "This couple have worked hard to produce two excellent 4 person holiday lets."

    Thoughtfully laid out within the constraints of the old barn and equipped to the highest standards. As ever there are things we would have done differently, but these are points of personal choice and not really important in the overall scheme of things. Overall a great holiday home.

  • "Lovely property."

    Had a very relaxed stay. The hot tub was fantastic and as it was under cover we were able to use it whatever the weather. Property is very well presented, very clean, with good quality fixtures and fittings and everything worked as it should. All very well maintained. The welcome pack was a bonus and had the most delicious fresh eggs and bacon included. Thanks Rhiain. Kids loved the daily visits from the owners 3 cats. They are so friendly and cute! Couldn’t fault our stay and would definitely recommend. Would love to return. We had a very enjoyable holiday made all the better by staying in such a fantastic property.
