    Lovely property warm and clean and ideally placed for days out Only one slight criticism ,maybe some noise insulation under the bathroom area wouldn’t go amiss

  • "Lovely cottage."

    Just got back from 4 night stay. 2 adults and 2 dogs. Looks small, but like the tardis inside is bigger than it would appear! Kitchen very well equipped. 5 ring gas hob, oven, grill, microwave, air fryer, fridge freezer, washing machine and dishwasher. No tumble dryer but washing line in garden and also in boot room/back entrance. Stairs are quite steep so if you have small dogs you would have to carry them up or leave them downstairs. Not suitable for small children as per owners description. Upstairs bathroom with triton shower over bath. Easy to use. No problem with getting hot water. King size beds in both bedrooms. Central heating in all rooms and woodburner in living/dining area. Freeview tv and free wifi. Bedrooms well furnished and clean. Whole place was spotless and very well looked after. Small welcome pack of essentials on arrival, bread, butter, milk, tea bags and welsh cakes. Rear enclosed garden accessible by back yard. Beware dogs can get from rear garden gate to front garden where there is only a small wall. There is a small driveway to park in but is quite narrow. Shop down the road is a little gem and open until 7pm. Pub also down the road and dog friendly. Pub is closed monday and tuesday. All in all a lovely cottage and really enjoyed our time there. Date of stay: September 2023

    Clean, warm and comfortable, we had everything we needed. Kitchen was excellent! Garden was safe for Rhea the spaniel and we enjoyed a couple of lazy lunches out there. Plenty to do in the area, Mwnt was a favourite. Local shop was really well stocked and I can recommend brunch at the Daffodil. Parking on the drive was fine and the neighbours were friendly. Weather could have been kinder to us but still a great break. The welcome pack was fabulous! Thanks so much Sammi x

  • "Lovely cottage."

    Everything we needed. A welcome basket with essential items was left for us which saved us having to go shopping as soon as we arrived. One minor observation....the bedrooms and bathroom door were very noisy to open or close so had to be very careful not to wake other people during the night. Other than that we all had a very enjoyable stay. Would recommend.

    Hi Charles, there were birds nesting in the hedge. We will trim it again once they leave. Glad you enjoyed and we’d love to have you back again Property Owner

  • "We really enjoyed our stay in this cottage which lived up to its name."

    The cottage is in ideal location not far from the stunning coast or from many walks in woods and delightful countryside. Do visit the well stocked local shop and the Daffodil which serves really good food. Back to the cottage which was very clean, beds were comfortable, kitchen was well equipped, lounge/diner was again comfortable, garden was secure for our dogs and we spent time enjoying it. Tin opener needs replacing, could do with a smaller frying pan, kitchen door latch needs attention as we had to put a chair in front of the door at night to keep dogs in the kitchen and a curtain on the front would just help with glare on television before sunset. These are very minor things. Well done to Sammy and John and thank you for the welcome pack.

    Spacious and well laid out, and spotless, ideal for dogs also, who enjoyed the enclosed garden at the back of the cottage. Car could be parked off the road, which was good as the lane was quite busy at times. Plenty of places to visit without driving too far - LLangranog and Mwnt, both stunning. Also enjoyed Cenarth. Would definitely recommend this cottage.

    It has everything you need for a week or two away. The moment we arrived there was a welcome package waiting for us. The neighbours were very friendly and on the first day told us where the best places to walk the dogs locally. Ideally situated we could get to nearby beaches within about half an hour. Highly reccomend this place and we will be staying there next year

    And you would be most welcome! Fabulous guests Property Owner

  • "The cottage itself was very nice, clean, comfortable and well equipped."

    There were no instructions for anything so the heating stayed on despite warm weather! The big problem was the parking. I could not get my Honda Civic - not an enormous car - into the cottage drive and have space to open the doors to get out, (my sister, with a Citroen C3, JUST managed it). The owners advice to put my car outside in front of the cottage, was not much use on two counts. A) the neighbours opposite came out to tell me that it made manoeuvring their own cars very difficult and could I move mine. B) given the size and speed of some of the traffic going up the lane, it was not sensible to park a car on the opposite side of the road to everyone else; the mammoth tractor pulling spray equipment would certainly not have got through without damage to somebody's car. It is obviously causing trouble with the neighbouring residents and some compromise needs to be sorted out.

    Hi Sue, Thank you for the review and I’m pleased the cottage was clean and comfortable. Very disappointed with the rest of the review. Not too sure what the problem was there is an obvious on/off switch for the boiler the heating was only on for a few hours early morning and late evening as it can still get chilly. The option to just switch it off is there, and we live 3 miles away and we’re always at the end of a phone. As for parking we have had transit vans and camper vans parked on the driveway numerous times with no problems at all? We also lived in the cottage for 2 years ourselves and had 2 cars parked outside on the road with no issues. Come to the countryside for a holiday and expect to see tractors driving on the lane.

  • "Really enjoyed our stay."

    Completely dog friendly and plenty to see and do. You definitely need a car as it’s Wales and things aren’t on the doorstep! That’s being said with a few minutes walk you have a local shop that sells everything you need and a really good pub. Cardigan was beautiful and really dog friendly. The cottage is really clean and has everything. It’s rustic as it’s a cottage but it’s really clean and super sweet. The bed was really comfortable. I have only 2 points to note, I found finding dog walks quite hard as I got a bit spun round and confused where I was allowed to walk. Be adventurous. I would have liked the grass cut really short in the garden as it was a bit difficult to pick up after the dog in long grass (dog owners will understand). This was more because I felt bad not getting it all up as the place was so nice. I would come again and I did get to meet the owners who were lovely. Really worth the trip

    We got a proper workout walking the dogs around the local roads which are quite hilly. Only dampener for us was that we got bitten by midgies which left us itching throughout the stay. That’s not the fault of the property, just the time of year.

    My husband and I took my 90 year old mother in law and stayed for a week and had a relaxing and peaceful time. She is quite fit and could manage the stairs. Our two dogs loved the secure enclosed garden and we spent a few happy evenings sitting on the garden furniture relaxing with a drink. The owners, Sammy and John, left us a welcome basket with wine and other goodies which was very much appreciated. The bedrooms are spacious and the beds comfortable. Everything is clean, fresh and homely. Five minutes walk away is a stunning gastropub (The Daffodil) which is very dog friendly and and the amazing local shop just opposite sells everything you need. I can strongly recommend this lovely cottage without hesitation.

A hidden fish and chip gem is the Chipoteria in Hermon, SA33 6SR, and loved visiting the beautifully painted Holy Trinity Church at Pont-ar-Gothi where a friendly couple showed us around. This is open on Thursdays between 2 and 4 pm. Its a bit further to drive but LLansteffan Beach is great for dog walking in good weather. Second visit to this cottage and will most likely book again for third visit!

A traditional stone detached cottage, in the heart of the popular village of Penrhiwllan which boasts a hugely popular pub and restaurant.

This cottage is a perfect base for couples, families or friends looking to explore the fabulous West Wales undulating countryside and beautiful coastline peppered with sandy beaches and rugged coves, yet being a short walk from a local pub and some good food.

Set over two floors, there are two cosy bedrooms and family bathroom.

There is a light and airy well-equipped kitchen, which leads out into the welcoming garden and patio area.

Completing the accommodation is an open plan sitting room with a warming woodburner and dining area, perfect for social evenings or cosying up in front of the TV.

Outside, you can sit in the split level enclosed garden and enjoy the evening sunshine with a glass of something cold, whilst the dogs potter in peace.

Penrhiwllan is equidistant between the riverside towns of Llandysul and Newcastle Emlyn, both quaint rural towns with Newcastle Emlyn on the River Teifi offering various restaurants, cafés and independent shops and a little haven for antique enthusiasts.

You are perfectly placed to explore the beautiful coastline of Cardigan Bay, rich with wildlife and you may get the opportunity to catch sight of the famous dolphins, a seal and her pups or some fantastic birdlife.

Visit fabulous sandy beaches such as the National Trust’s Penbryn, 10 miles or Mwnt 17 miles or pretty fishing villages such as Tresaith or Aberporth, 13 miles.

For an unforgettable experience, perhaps take a boat trip to the stunning Skomer Island off the Pembrokeshire Coast, where at certain times of the year you can see seal pups or virtually walk with the puffins, within an hour and a half drive.

A perfect village retreat, close to a popular pub and restaurant.

Ideal for couples, families and friends looking to enjoy a variety of outdoor and white knuckle activities, walk the fantastic local countryside or enjoy myriad of coves and beaches along the stunning Cardigan Bay.
