  • "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. Regards John. Property Owner

  • "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

Thankyou so much.

  • "Really lovely location which has a secure garden which is ideal for the dogs."

    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.

  • "Really enjoyed the cottage, great base for west Wales."

    Very clean, good amount of space and great fully enclosed garden for any dogs. One negative was that the internet was not good enough to stream any Netflix etc although there's a smart TV. I know you are not there to watch much telly but after a full on day it would of been a nice option though.

    Cottage owner was mortified and said had we contacted her direct she would have rectified the issue while we were there- then sent photos of it having been rectified before next guests arrived. Cannot fault the owner of the cottage- wish I’d just contacted her instead of replying to the automated thing Sykes sent me- that was a waste of time!

  • "This is a beautiful, cosy and comfortable cottage with plenty of space in the living room and a cute farmhouse kitchen."

    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.

    We have had the most amazing stay over Christmas . The cottage was perfectly situated for a family visit..the owners had thoughtfully placed tasteful decorations throughout and we had a first class welcome hamper on arrival and even left a foil turkey tray ( above expectations) which was ideal for our turkey dinner. . The cottage was warm and very comfortable and felt like home. Congratulations to the owners who, to me have thought of everything. We will be visiting the cottage in the near future.

  • "Cosy Cwtch cottage really does feel like a home from home."

    The kitchen is a lovely, big size with plenty of room for feeding us and our dogs and no crowding. The lovely owners go out of their way to be available and helpful. The garden is securely fenced but accessible to wildlife and the local shop caters for all diets and tastes. Beautiful beaches and stunning riverside walks are close by. 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!

    Spotless, beautifully furnished and wonderfully comfortable. The owners have thought of everything you could need for a perfect stay away from home.We used the pretty court yard garden for breakfast and early evening gin and tonics before eating in the two village pubs that made us very welcome.The food in both was excellent. The village was very pretty and lots to see and do in the area. We have booked many holiday homes over many years and this is definitely our favourite, can’t wait to return.
