  • "This was a family get together and 7 of us stayed in the cottage for a week."

    With 5 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, there was plenty of room, and the kitchen, lounge and conservatory were all large rooms too. The conservatory had wonderful views of the garden and the kitchen was very cosy and pretty. It was great having two different areas we could eat in. The conservatory was bigger, but the kitchen was warmer. We were all impressed with the bedrooms which were all well furnished; beds were comfortable and the bedding felt lovely quality. There are some fantastic views from the windows. It's truly a beautiful property! It's also very practical; the kitchen is well equipped and there's plenty of storage space for groceries, which isn't always the case. We had some minor problems with the house during our stay and the owner responded quickly to fix things. For example, the heating had turned off as it was April, but they turned it back on and were very generous with the timings. This made a big difference to my elderly parents who feel the cold. They also welcomed us with homemade Welsh cakes and fresh local milk. If we went back to the area, we would definitely stay here again.
