  • "An excellent cottage, very peaceful and well appointed."

    Reviewed by DavidJul 2021

  • "Cosy, characterful, comfortable and spacious accommodation in a secluded and picturesque setting."

    The cottage was warmly heated throughout a cold week in March; the kitchen was well-equipped and the whole environment was relaxed and peaceful. Bathroom fittings clean and functional, but could do with modernisation (which is apparently planned).

    A most comfortable, cosy and charming place set in the most stunning surroundings. The owner and staff were welcoming and helpful and even gave us a tour of the beautiful Talhenbont Hall, which is not far from conifers and would make the most perfect venue and location for a wedding.
