  • "We enjoyed our stay, peaceful location and comfortable cottage."

    Spacious bedrooms and lovely fluffy bath towels. We just missed a grassed area for our dog to play ball in, as there is only a small paved area A thoughtful welcome pack was left for us and our dog to enjoy. Lovely area not far from the coast and Brecon

  • "The cottage wells beautiful."

    It had everything we needed including champagne glasses!! The owners were lovely and even though they lived next door they were not at all intrusive. I would highly recommend this as a place to stay to relax and see some beautiful welsh countryside.

    It is extremely well equipped to a very high standard and beautifully decorated. The owners have thought of everything a visitor might need. The beds are incredibly comfortable and the hot tub is a delight. The kitchen is great with all mod cons. The owners are very helpful whilst offering privacy. This is one of the best holiday cottages we have stayed in.

  • "This cottage is just lovely."

    Furnished to a very high standard with fantastic amenities. The outside area is delightful and the hot tub was very well maintained and just so relaxing. The welcome pack provided was brilliant with lots of treats for everyone - even our dog! The freshly laid eggs included were a taste sensation and the owners were lovely too. This place is a gem and we cannot wait to go back.

  • "04/02/22-07/02/22 We had the most wonderful weekend at Crooked cottage, everything was perfect."

    Lin greeted us at the gate and showed us around her beautiful cottage, Lin made sure we knew where everything was and how everything worked so that we had to waste no time looking for anything. Lin made it clear that if there was anything at all we needed she would be there, but also that she would be there only if there was as not to disturb us. The hot tub and log burner was absolutely amazing and added that final touch to an already gorgeous stay. It felt like we were in the middle of nowhere but the cottage can be a short car journey from plenty of local sights and beaches. We will be coming back. If you are looking for a place to switch off and unwind Crooked cottage is the ideal retreat. Thank you so much. Gemma & Jonathan - Bristol.

    Then peacefulness of the accommodation helped us with 2 days of bad weather which didn't dampen our time hear. Very warm welcome and feels so secure and so abandoned from city life. If you need to properly get away from real life then this is the place. With the benefit of Ammanford just a walk pr stones throw away. You are only 5 mins from tesco but a million mile away at the same time. Dogs loved it too
