    It was a peaceful, relaxing break and I look forward to hopefully returning next year. We had the perfect break.

  • "Lovely, clean and welcoming."

    Farm dog Jacko was a big hit with our 6 and 4 year olds. Beautiful views of the sea from the living area. Close to lots of things to do - we did a castle a day and Borth-y-Gest was wonderful for a beach walk and café.

    Our 5 year old son enjoyed being on the farm. The owners were so friendly. We had great views, great surroundings, peace and quiet of the countryside. Cant wait to return.

  • "The chalet is in a beautiful, quiet spot."

    We had great views to the sea and the mountains, with dramatic sunsets and bright starlight. Having two bathrooms was a real bonus, and apart from the steps onto the decking surrounding the property, everything was easy for our elderly mother to access. We had fantastic weather, at the end of September, and we all enjoyed our stay in this spectacularly scenic part of Wales.

  • "Such a lovely place having your own little garden with swing and slide."

    It was peaceful and safe and the kids loved it. Seeing sheep out of the bathroom window and the friendly farmer showing us the goslings. Two bathrooms was handy too. Really enjoyed it.

  • "The accommodation was superb, the owners were very friendly and helpful and the children loved feeding the lambs and playing with the sheep dogs."

    We have stayed frequently in holiday accommodation and this was probably the best ever. I have already recommended it to others. Also Sykes Holiday booking staff must be the best ever, so helpful and pleasant. Many thanks for everything.

  • "Our family loved this holiday and our little boy was able to play freely and safely outside of the cottage."

    There were swings and a slide, football, frisbee and a bat and ball set (all belonging to the farm). The animals were lovely to look at everyday and the farmer and his wife were very welcoming and friendly. We even got to see a newborn lamb! It was a very peaceful and relaxing holiday and yet within a short driving distance there were plenty of other things to do and see. We would certainly recommend this holiday and we can't wait to go back later this year in the summer so that we can use the outside BBQ.

    Ideally placed for touring North Wales as we did or a seaside holiday. The garden area was excellent and the fact it is enclosed is great for small children like ours. My daughter loved the animals and the swings and slide in the garden.
