  • "What a beautiful cottage in an idyllic setting."

    Hafan cottage was immaculately clean and well equipped. The views are amazing and just what you need to recharge the soul. Carol was very welcoming and friendly and made the most amazing Welsh cakes. We also had some lovely chats with her father-in-law. Already booked for next year!

  • "We had a wonderful time at this lovely cottage."

    It is set in the most amazing countryside with the only sounds being the gurgle of the river and the bleating of the sheep and lambs. It was truly idyllic and we were very sad to leave at the end of our two week stay. Carol, Arwyn and Mike were very friendly, and we learned a lot about their busy life on the farm. Carol also makes the most amazing Welsh cakes.

    Beautifully located , this cosy, clean , well equipped cottage provided us with a fantastic place to relax and recharge our batteries! Carol and family are amazing hosts from checking in with us to make sure we were safe and our journey wasn’t being hampered by the weather, providing us with tasty welcome gifts and telling us of places we might like to visit they ensured that we were well looked after without being intrusive.

    Carol is welcoming and friendly, best Welsh cakes I’ve tasted , thank you for the welcome pack, wine in the fridge just perfect. I booked last minute as it hit all my criteria on my tick list. I wasn’t disappointed in any way. I have had the most perfect adventure to relax & re-energise. Steam train adventure, forest lake walks, and two different beach day trips all within 10 to 50 minutes drive from the cottage. I will recommend this cottage to my friends & family and hope to return myself. The only sad moment was having to leave to go home.

  • "Perfect cottage to relax and unwind."

    Access is down a narrow lane with occasional passing places. The stream shown in pictures is located in pastureland and it runs alongside the cottage boundary, you'll see sheep, lambs and cows over the fence. Lawned areas either side and to the front of cottage, large gravel gated drive and lovely flower borders. Cottage was a gem - clean, well equipped and well maintained with great bed and shower. Owners very friendly, helpful and lovely to talk to. Really made to feel welcome on arrival and departure. Gorgeous welsh cakes! The back patio is a delight with far reaching views over lush fields and woodland in the distance. Our favourite part of the day was sitting there in the sunshine watching the lambs. We had fantastic weather all week which was unexpected! Without doubt the most peaceful location I have ever stayed in.

  • "The cottage was amazing."

    We loved every minute of the week we stayed there. The owners were very hospitable. not at all intrusive, and made us very welcome. It was all that we imagined it would be. They let us walk on their farm land so we could go on walks. The hot tub was in a good position and the log fire was great as well. We will definitely be re-booking later this year. This is an ideal place to recharge your batteries.

    Very lovely cozy cottage, situated in a beautiful location. Extremely clean inside and out and the owners were very friendly and accommodating. We visited with 2 young children 10 months old and 2 years old and we found the cottage very child friendly. We will definitely consider booking again.

  • "Absolutely beautiful cottage photos don’t do it justice!"

    Spotlessly clean, owners lovely and helpful, and such perfect surroundings. Only downside is although there is WiFi, it’s not very good and you can only just about use it to send messages etc, however that was fine with us
