  • "The location of the apartment is great and is set on a farm which has horses and sheep."

    The owners dogs were an added bonus who great you when you arrive. The apartment is cosy and was perfect for us. The only thing that let the place down was the driveway leading into the farm off the main road. The road is full of pot holes and some are hard to avoid especially if you don't have a 4×4. The water pressure in the apartment is also not great and the water in thr bathroom was hard to maintain one temperature.

  • "The loft was as we expected, cosy, homely, everything we needed."

    The was an issue with the water pressure, but host explained and we just adapted and coped, no big problem at all. Hosts were very welcoming, friendly and offered a lot of welcome advice on the area. The firewood was a nice and welcome touch, just loved the log burner. It is a working Farm we thoroughly enjoyed the surroundings peaceful, but only 10 minutes away from shops and pubs and very friendly locals. The only problem we found we the track to the farm was in need of some repair, pot holes were in need of attention. We would definitely go back, and hopefully get some nicer weather, it rained for the entire weekend, but felt extremely comfortable in the lodge, no issues with the WFI or TV and the host brought us a beautiful treat, homemade apple cake, Thankyou for a great weekend NO COMPLAINTS

  • "No proper shower you had to knee in the bathtub to have shower and the water was always just tepid never hot"

  • "Great location, very quiet with lovely views across countryside looking towards the church at Llandysul."

    The loft apartment itself was comfortable with a lovely king-size bed. However, the toilet leaked a little from the cistern, the lights around the bathroom mirror didn't work and the hot water supply to the bath/shower wasn't great. Also two of the window blinds were broken. Relatively minor things but they do need fixing. Owners very friendly as were their dogs

  • "Very pleasant location, near the river and next to woodland and with short local walks from the cottage."

    Fields with sheep and horses and a local buzzard - lovely views and beautiful deciduous woods all around. Llandysul was a pretty little village with several pubs all closed for Covid, unfortunately. A large supermarket within walking distance from the Loft next to a petrol station. Place exactly as described in terms of layout: bright and airy, warm, pleasant raised seating area just outside. Adjacent to active farm buildings with horses in permanent stabling but this was no problem, and the farming activity wasn't at all disturbing. We didn't need to use the woodburning stove until the last day when it was very windy and stormy and we decided to stay in. Worked well. Comments from previous visitors still apply, in part: hot water to bathroom was OK (the instant heating system sometimes trips out, switch in fuseboard in cupboard resets it) but shower is a combined bathtap/shower fixture with no thermostatic control and like all such equipment hard to get right. No heated towel rail in bathroom so towels gradually got damper and more fusty as the week went on. Fridge is very noisy. Tends to be a constant motor noise so you can ignore it, but it really is the noisiest fridge I've heard and for some people it would be a problem. Cooking equipment: previous reviews said it was lacking a decent range of pans so we brought a small one with us. Also missing were: grater, potato masher, wooden spoon, scissors, cafetiere or filter, washing up bowl (had to use the sink whose inset plug was no longer working so had to be dropped in and then flipped out with the blade of a knife) and breadboard (using that glass chopping board to slice bread: not good). Only one mug (there were cups) and only two matching decent wineglasses. Otherwise a motley few of different shapes, mostly plastic. Two of the blinds weren't working. One we could simply raise and lower by hand-rolling the top roller, the other was completely adrift. We reported it to the owner who suggested we part-open the window and hang the roller over the top edge of the window. This worked, but not ideal. Local lighting (small standard lamps maybe?) in the seating area would have been very useful in order to read comfortably, as well as making the most of the layout. No local tourist leaflets or maps or guides, probably due to Covid precautions. So: a few improvements in kitchen equipment which could easily be implemented would be a big help. More local lighting in sitting area would be nice. Longer term: changing the fridge for a quieter one would be sensible. Adding an electric heated towel rail would be a big benefit.

  • "The loft apartment was very clean and cosy, however the wifi doesn’t work and the hot water for the shower worked for 3 minutes then stopped and we were unable to get any after that."

    Had to wash our hair in the kitchen sink. Apart from that the bed was very comfy and the place had a homely feel. Would recommend bringing dvds with you as we had to go buy some to keep ourselves entertained without wifi.

  • "This accommodation only just met expectations as the bathroom facilities were not realky adequate."

    There was a bath with a shower attachment, however the water heater was ineffective and it was not possible to run sufficient hot water for a bath or even to try and shower as the hot water only stayed on for few seconds at a time. The wifi would not contact. The layout was a little strange with the tv and fireplace being in front of the bed instead near the seating area. It was clean and tidy.

    There was a sloping roof so I couldn't take a shower standing up. There was no oven.

  • "We had a lovely week in this apartment."

    It is in a beautiful valley and yet within easy distance of the attractions the area has. However we found part of the approach to the property full of serious potholes which had to be negotiated very carefully. The accommodation was spacious with a good comfortable bed and outside seating area. The overhead bath shower was only usable sitting in the bath due to the sloping roof. There were only two large pans and two large frying pans in the kitchen rather unsuitable for using for just two people. The TV had no signal all week and internet use was very patchy. This did not bother us but may well b an issue for other visitors.

  • "Stayed at The Loft for 2 weeks whilst working in the area."

    Pleasantly surprised how spacious, peaceful and beautiful the whole complex is. Couldn’t of asked for more, like a home from home. Owners were very pleasant, even brought my delicious cake! Will definitely stay back here when working in the area again.

  • "Myself and my husband stayed here over the Christmas period."

    It was amazing. I loved the fact we could walk anywhere on the 10 acres of the grounds,we could help if we wanted to with the livestock,the hosts were so nice. The Loft Apartment was nice and cosy. The lovely log fire made it even more so. Had everything we needed. Nice and clean. Stunning place to stay. We are already planning our next holiday here in the summer for another week. Only thing about this place is I DIDNT want to come home. I would like to say a massive THANK YOU again to the hosts xx

  • "This is a lovely loft apartment, cosy, warm and bright."

    A giant super king bed that you could get lost in and plenty of draw space for clothes. We had a bit of trouble trying to get the bathroom water hot enough to fill a bath, but that did not hinder us as the water through the shower head was roasting. A warm welcome from owner and horses, plus farm cat who can to investigate the new people. Thank you so much, would come again except we like to explore different areas.
