    The cottage is really cosy and lots of little thoughtful details just add to the homely atmosphere. (e.g. scones with jam from Tannat valley and butter and plenty of beautiful decorations) We loved the open fire which we could properly enjoy during colder rainy evenings. There was also plenty of wood so we did not need to worry about running out. The owners were very approachable and friendly and always ready to assist should we need anything which only added to our comfort and peace of mind. The view from the cottage was magnificent and we really enjoyed relaxing on the cosy window seat as well as on the chairs outside and taking in the breathtaking view. Our children really loved stroking lambs that the farmer was looking after as it was just the lambing season. It is also in very convenient location just a short distance from one of the seven wonders of Wales – The Pistyl waterfall which was magnificent. It is right in the Berwyn National Reserve that offers many natural walks and relaxing moments. We would definitely be back at this lovely place and would recommend to anyone looking for escape from everyday chaos.
