  • "Really lovely idyllic cottage , a special place as it’s where my red Border Collie, Eddie was born as the breeder are the hosts!"

    I didn’t want to leave as love this place. Great facilities and base fir exploring. Everything you need to relax , have a nice meal and chill out by the wood burner at night. I will miss that morning view! The hosts Meryl and Arwell gave a lovely tour of their working farm at a very busy lambing time! Amazing ! Fabulous , special place will be back!

    The owners were incredible; we arrived a little later than expected and they had put the fire on to warm the house. There were several fantastic extra touches for over the weekend. They were absolutely lovely and couldn't do more to help. The house itself was impeccable, just like the surrounding area. We went exploring around the local area and we weren't disappointed!!

    The cottage is in a beautiful setting, it is quiet surrounded by fields and wildlife. It is close enough to things to do and places to walk without being too close. The cottage itself is definitely one of the best and well stocked we have been to. It is like being at home. The rooms are lovely and the living room is spacious yet cosy. The owners are attentive without being intrusive, they checked on us a few times to make sure we had everything we needed and were absolutely lovely. We will definitely be back!

    The cottage was amazing and beautifully furnished and fully equipped. The only thing we needed was food. Tea, coffee and sugar were provided and there were lots of cleaning products, cloths and binbags. Upon arrival we discovered a beautiful cake and a hamper containing milk, eggs, yogurt and cheese. It really is the thoughtful little touches that make this place amazing. This was our first family holiday together for myself and my partner and his 2 children and my child. We all had an amazing time and wished we could have stayed longer. The children loved their visit to the farm meeting all the animals. We will definitely book again. Lots of lovely lasting memories for us were created in this fabulous cottage. Words are not enough to express how marvellous it is. I will miss the stunning views and drinking a coffee outside whilst looking over the fields. Meryl gave us a tour of the farm and the animals whilst Arwel and my little one loved to have football chats, especially since she is an Everton fan and Arwel a Liverpool fan, she especially loved showing off her tattoo. Thank you for everything.

    Meryl and Arwel definitely go out of their way to make your stay perfect. On arrival we were greeted with a roaring fire in the lounge, well stocked fridge, tea, coffee and even cake to welcome us, what a lovely surprise. The beds most comfortable, bathroom immaculate, kitchen equipped to a very high standard. The lounge too, very comfortable with plenty seating space Meryl and Arwel kept popping in to check that all was well, went out of their way to make our stay perfect. We were also given a tour of the farm, unfortunately no lambs as yet, but a few calves, loved every minute of it. Had heavy snow during our last night, Alwen was there to ensure we were safe. The morning of departure he cleared the whole area of snow making it easier for us to depart. Would highly recommend this most beautiful location for a break, we will definitely be going back there to sample more of their hospitality, this time with our grandchildren to enjoy the farm as well. Thank you once again for an unforgettable experience in your lovely cottage.

Bedrooms were well sized and front & rear patios great to enjoy the nice weather and great views of the surrounding land space. Hosts were very welcoming, passing by in more than one occasions to make sure everything was alright. They prepared the gas fired BBQ in request and also gave us a little tour in their lamb farm (which was great for the kids). Only small downside is that there is only one bathroom/WC available.

    Normally we would be skiing this time of year so, of course, it snowed up at Melin-Y-Wig. We arrived with our two boys (in their early 20s) and our dog. We could not have been made more welcome - including the very thoughtful provision of tea and cake upon arrival. Meryl and Arwel popped over from time to time to make sure everything was fine - and this was much appreciated. We all agreed our time spent at Pendre Uchaf was perfect and our hosts could not have been more attentive and caring despite having to work through the night to deliver up to 70 lambs. We were even invited across to the farm before we left to have a quick look at everything that was going on - during which my wife was invited to help deliver a lamb!

  • "This was a lovely cottage and in a great location if you enjoy the peace and quiet of the countryside."

    When we arrived the owners had left a lovely Victoria sponge, scones (which tasted amazing) and fresh flowers, they even came down to make sure we had arrived ok and everything was in order. Although you could hear each other walking around the house it wasn't something that would stop us going back! It was very warm and the fire was lovely on the cold autumn evenings. We had plenty of space for the 5 of us. We will defiantly be back for another visit soon!!!
