  • "Fantastic place , very modern and out of the way :) we loved our stay and had family down in blaenau :) very nice layout and the kids enjoyed their rooms, we had them downstairs and us upstairs and the views were amazing."

    Will deffinatly be booking again as throughly enjoyed it, wish we had booked longer tbh. Would reccomend aldi in llangollen, has home bargins aswell which added plus. And the chippy in blaenau is amazing well worth the drive. We went to zipmas in at zipworld near blaenau and they were all friendly and very accomidating to our autistic 3 yr old :) Not going to lie its a drive to locations but you get to take in the stunning welsh landscape en route. You can easily just relax at hen dy mawndy instead as its so comfortable, has underfloor heating easy to use heating controls and the owners are always at the end of the phone and very friendly. Even had the heating on for us when we arrived which was a nice touch. Would 100% reccomend this place :) Worth the travel from west sussex From Melissa and Geraint

  • "Loved the cottage, beautiful location and views down the valley."

    Cottage was lovely and clean and beds comfortable. Felt the lounge area would have benefited from some curtains to make it less stark and absorb some of the sound, but that was our only critisism.

  • "Wonderful property."

    Highly recommend. Lovely location that's easy to get to and has ample off road parking. Views from every room are incredible as it's set in the middle of a working farm - really going to miss waking up there. The property was spotlessly clean and fresh. Really impressed with the tasteful decor and all facilities - the showers had great water pressure, the beds and sofas were comfortable and the smart TV's in each room worked great. The kitchen was well stocked and the spacious open plan diner was perfect for entertaining and family games. To add to all this, the owners were really friendly and their welcome pack/ directions were super helpful. Cannot wait to book to go back, such a gem of a property!

    Beds and bedding so comfy. Kitchen facilities comprehensive - everything you could possibly need. No phone signal (which i knew about) was a bit of a pain but only because of recent banking rules requiring an OTP ... so couldnt pay for anything remotely from the house. Managed to do bookings etc. When out and about once we realised. Other than that every little detail had been thought about and we would definitely stay again.
