  • "A comfortable cottage with spectacular views of the surrounding countryside."

    The hosts were friendly and helpful. A good holiday.

  • "We very much enjoyed our stay."

    The owners live very nearby to the property which is situated on a working farm. Whilst welcoming and friendly, they were never intrusive. The property is very comfortable and the view from sun room is marvellous. The local pub (a community run venture) is within easy walking distance whilsy Lampeter is a short drive away and has a number of other pubs and eateries. If you value peace and quiet you'll enjoy Llety'r Wennol. It was nice to lay in bed at night listening to nothing other than the odd sheep and a distant owl. On our return home we almost immediately booked a return visit for October and, having enjoyed visiting in spring, we now look forward to seeing it in the autumn .

    Thank you for your kind feedback. We look forward to seeing you again in October. Property Owner

  • "We had a wonderful relaxing week in this lovely cottage."

    We did not experience any problems with insects and enjoyed the cottage and garden.Watching the lambs in the fields was delightful and seeing the spring flowers everywhere was lovely. We enjoyed exploring and days out. The roads were so quite it was a step back in time. The owners are very welcoming and hospitable I would recommend this cottage to anyone wishing to visit this part of Wales.

    Thank you for your kind feedback comments. Glad you enjoyed your stay at Llety’r Wennol - it was a delight to have you staying on the farm. Property Owner

  • "We enjoyed a relaxing week."

    The property is well equipped and the scenery is outstanding. The owners are friendly and quick to assist with any issues. If you enjoy being far away from everything then this is the place to be. It's so beautiful. It's nice to see the horses in the fields too. The downside is that there were a huge amount of flies in the sun room. There is what looks to be a big dung heap next to the house and so hoards of flies swarm in. We had to use masses of fly spray. This is very off putting. But other than that it was a nice stay.

    Many thanks for your generally positive feedback, although I was disappointed to learn that you had a problem with flies in the Haulfan (sun room). There is an electric fly zapper in the Haulfan which is very effective. With regard the dung heap, I believe it is misleading to say that the dung heap is next to the cottage - there is a yard and another building between the cottage and the muck heap. We encourage guests to contact us during their stay if they experience any issues or concerns. Property Owner

    He responded immediately to a very minor problem. The conservatory is so beautiful, and the views stunning. There is an excellent pub in walking distance, with friendly landlord and superb food. Book ahead to avoid disappointment. The bedrooms and furniture are comfortable, and we really enjoyed our stay.

    The cottage is very comfortabe and well equipped. But the best thing was The sunroom. We mostly sat there and enjoyed the spectacular view. So relaxing to watch the sheep, horses, cows and birds. We left the hustle and bustle of Cologne and loved the peace and tranquility. Although we had a lot of rain, we had a great week. Thanks to Mr. And Mrs. Davies who made sure everything was fine. We can definately recommend this place. Thanks from Monika & Chris

    Mrs and Mrs Davies are gracious hosts and the welcome pack was a nice surprise and most welcome. The cottage is located on a lovely farm with stunning views of the countryside and surrounding hills. Watching the sunset from the glass atrium area was a real treat at the end of the day. The farm is well situated to explore the surrounding area and there a a number of excellent National Trust properties to visit.

    The long views are of open fields with sheep and cows grazing. The owners keep the cottage in perfect condition and it is spotlessly clean and fully functional for a perfect stay for adults. Places of interest tend to be an hours drive but the views in this part of Wales are spectacular.

    The owners did try to help but the problem couldn't be resolved which wasnt there fault. I would recommend that guests are informed the trampoline is private prior to arrival especially if they will have children with them to avoid disappointment. Overall we enjoyed our break away, the glass fronted room on the front of the house is a real bonus but would of liked to have had sofa in there to sit in and admire the views instead of the table and chairs.

    The rooms looked slightly bigger in the pictures than they actually were but they were still lovely. The heating was a real bonus with the thermostatic radiators. The glass room on the front is glorious and the view superb. Having said that being able to walk on the farm was very nice and the owners were great, very accommodating, very helpful and kind and a great knowledge of the local area. Information in the house about local things to do was very helpful. We really enjoyed our stay. I would go back here.

  • "Lovely little cottage with unbeatable scenery and surroundings."

    Very very cosy on these Winter nights. I absolutely loved the conservatory and the views that could be seen from within and from the bedrooms, either of the rolling hills or the farm. The owners were lovely and made sure to come and say hi when we arrived and briefly each day without being too intrusive, and upon our arrival we were greeted by some tea :D and some food and drink supplies which was a really nice touch. We had a 2 year old with us, and she didn't get bored not even for a moment. Plenty of things to see, there's a small playground not too far as well as being within an hours drive of the coast. Our only very minor problem was the hot water for the downstairs bath taking a while to fill and cutting out every now and again, but other than that we can't fault it at all. All 3 of us would fully recommend this cottage, given we stayed in December I can only imagine how amazing it would be in the Summer months and I'm very tempted to find out. Thank you!!!
