  • "What a fantastic place to stay, the cottage was clean, cosy and brilliantly equipped for our family of five."

    We stayed the week before Christmas and Dilwyn and his wife had decorated the place beautifully. It was in a lovely secluded location which was perfect for our noisy boys to run around and explore in! Can’t thank you enough for having us!

  • "The Farmhouse is nicely furnished with quality fitments."

    My only negative is the fact that property is very remote. The narrow farm roads to get to property are not for the faint hearted. Potential holidaymakers do not know this, from just reading property advert and looking at the photographs. However we tried to enjoy our week at Pen Y Gaer as best as possible, and enjoyed the hot tub, looking out to the Welsh countryside. Thankyou to owner Dilwyn for all his help during the week.

  • "The cottage was great, with all the amineties you would like."

    If you plan to cook, would probably be a good idea to bring knives and a board. The beds a pretty comfortable. The owners were so lovely, really accommodating the cottage was comfortable. We were with a toddler so having to travel in lanes 15 minutes to get to a main road was a little tricky but they were amazing having a highchair, gate and travel cot. They even had some nice outdoors toys. The hot tub was a really nice addition to star gaze at night.

  • "Perfect location."

    A challenge to get to, but that is the charm and host came to meet us on the first day. So quiet and perfect for our granddaughter. The sea views were amazing. Definitely follow the advice from the host about the directions. Sat navs seem addicted to tiny roads, but the hosts travel tips take you on a slightly longer, but definitely easier route. Lots of thoughtful ideas and tips.

    It was equipped with everything we needed and the view was great. The hot tub was perfect - no faffing with controls etc as it was always warm - relaxing in the evening watching the stars, bats and owls was a delight. We took the hosts' recommendation to visit the local pub for steak night - we're glad we did!

    Everything we could think of was available from cafeteria to washing up liquid. The cottage was in a very quiet area and we enjoyed the relaxation as well as the fact it was close enough for us to visit Anglesey as well as lots of costal towns. The hosts Manon and Dilwyn were extremely welcoming and helpful during our trip. We hope to return next year.

    The cottage is a quiet retreat, private and secluded. Well equipped and wonderfully comfortable with the added bonus of the hot tub. The owners Dilwyn and Manon are lovely people who are so friendly and nice, who go out of their way to help and make you feel at home. We are definitely going to go back but stay longer next time. If you’re looking for a great place to unwind and relax then this is the place for you. It one of the best holiday retreats we have been to and you will not be disappointed. I can’t thank Dilwyn and Manon enough for such a fantastic stay.

  • "Absolutely lovely property with stunning views all around."

    If you’re looking to get away from it all, then I would highly recommend staying here. The owner, Dilwyn, was a great host. Met us in the village to drive us to the property, as driving directly to it using a sat nav would take us down a difficult road. House was lovely and cosy, had everything we needed for our two day break. The owners left us some cakes and milk in the fridge, as well as other essentials such as tea bags and sugar. The wifi was very good, considering we were in such a rural location. Handy to have sky sports and netflix etc. Hot tub was great, lovely to relax in after a busy day exploring. The location is very rural, but supermarkets and restaurants available within a ten min drive. As Dilwyn the host suggested, always use the sat nav to get to Henllan village first, and then to the cottage so as to avoid the very narrow road. House was spotless, and would definitely return next time we have a few days off. Can’t recommend highly enough. Thank you Dilwyn for everything, much appreciated. Andreas, Michelle and kids

    The house was fully equipped with everything we needed for our stay. Our twins enjoyed the garden and the ride on toys. We really appreciated Dilwyn meeting us in the village as it's tricky to find, but once you know, you know! Unfortunately, the location meant our ASDA delivery did not make it but there are several supermarkets just a drive away. The quiet secluded location was a perfect get away from our busy lives and the hot tub was a blessing. We managed to spot plenty of wildlife during our stay too, even one morning spotted a fox bouncing on the hot tub lid!! Highly recommended, the photos do not do this place justice.

  • "We had a brilliant weeks stay here but sadly it just wasn't long enough."

    Every last attention to detail was taken care of. There were plenty of toys provided for our 2 and a half year old granddaughter and even a nappy bin which was very useful with a 4 month old baby. Stair gates and travel cots provided also meant we didn't have to worry about accidents or bringing these items from home. Having a washer & dryer meant we didn't have mountains of washing to do at home after our holiday. The house is very clean and homely and in a perfect secluded spot, yet the coast and plenty of other attractions were very easily accessible by car. The hot tub was absolutely amazing and used every day for relaxing and star gazing in the evenings. We had a fantastic time and were spoilt by the all round views of rolling countryside. What a beautiful retreat, needless to say we have already booked for next year.

    This is hands down the best cottage we have been to, and we have been to a fair few recently. We absolutely loved the fact there was no neighbours surrounding you at all. You didn't have to worry about the noise what so ever. The hosts were absolutely lovely in showing us to the cottage and were there on hand if we ever needed anything. The hot tub was insane, nice and hot when we arrived. We were left some biscuits and other essentials and this was a lovely touch. We will one million percent be coming back in the coming month or so and will struggle to go anywhere else now. We got a great deal booking last minute and it was genuinely worth every penny. We all cannot wait to come again!

Only thing I would say is to take towels because, considering there's a hot tub, we had what we considered to be a hand towel and hair towel each! There weren't hand towels in the bathrooms either. Thankfully we took towels, which we could use after showering, as was going somewhere after, but getting out of the hot tub at night and wrapping, or not, a small towel around you was very chilly!!! It's a chlorine hot tub which was perfectly clear at the end of the week. We would definitely return if we found another last minute reduced offer.
