  • "Great accommodation."

    The second time we had been here and was great to be back. Loved everything about the place: spotless, loads of appliances in kitchen, comfy beds, great shower, safe outdoor space for the dog and the luxury of a hot tub - ideal for just relaxing and reading a book. Also enjoyed all the places around including PizzaTipi in Cardigan, the Ship Inn in Tresaith (great view of the sea) and further afield St Davids and Narbeth. Just a perfectly great relaxing week thank you

    Dear Kenny Thank you for taking the time to provide feedback. We are so glad that your return visit was a success and you enjoyed the cottage and local attractions. Best wishes Rod and Joy Property Owner

    Inside is something else , a fully equipped kitchen, large lounge area and two generous bedrooms, everything was clean and comfortable .We were greeted on arrival and shown round then left to ourselves , perfect for us .

    The house was immaculately clean and tidy, and had everything we needed for a weeks stay. The house is beautifully decorated and cow themed! The welcome pack was great and included some lovely Welsh food and snacks, and even included a dog pack. We will definitely be recommending this to our friends and family, we had a 10/10 stay here!

  • "Could not recommend enough!"

    Everything was just perfect for us. From being on the farm.. we loved interacting with the cows and the sheepdogs (Jess & Meg) to the spacious cottage itself. The rooms were beautifully decorated and the hot tub was a huge hit with our 10 year old (and us!) Joy and Rod were the most perfect hosts, they made us feel extremely comfortable and relaxed for our entire time with them. The "Welcome" pack was extremely thoughtful, even our dog had gifts to welcome her to the cottage. And don't worry if you forget things like shampoo or teabags, because the supplies that Joy and Rod have put in place to cater for such scenarios are amazing! 100% recommend. We will definitely be returning!

    Thank you so much for your feedback. We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay and the farm experience. Best wishes Rod and Joy Property Owner

  • "Wow! What a find!"

    The cottage is much larger than it appears in the photos, and beautifully presented inside and out and spotlessly clean. We were very lucky with the weather over the bank holiday weekend, we brought our portable bbq with us and had dinner each evening outside in the lovely garden, which the sun didn't appear to leave all day! The hot tub is huge, and was very much enjoyed. The owners have obviously put a lot of thought and love into making the place the perfect spot to chill out and enjoy the surroundings of the beautiful Welsh countryside. There is even a patio heater for chillier evenings if you want to enjoy more time outdoors. We drove out to Poppit sands (about 25mins), where our pooch enjoyed exploring the sand dunes, and to Cenarth Falls (12 mins) for a riverside and woodland walk, and a little splash about in the shallow waters beside the bridge. Just perfect, we cannot wait to return ❤️

  • "Absolutely fantastic stay at this cottage."

    The cottage was perfect for us as a family and had everything we needed. The cottage was on a working farm and the owners were right next door. They met us on arrival and and talked us through everything. The cottage was absolutely spotless. Location wise it is a 20 minute drive to the nearest beach (Aberporth). Other beaches like tresaith, Poppit sands or llangranog are a few minutes further away. Being woken up to the sound of cows in the morning is such fun and our dog loved being on a working farm. The dog was-able to use the fields to go circa walk and to do her business when the cows were not around. What really makes this cottage special are the little touches left by the owners on arrival. I do not have anything negative to say as there really are no negatives. The hot tub rounds things off after a busy day out and about. I really recommend this cottage. Believe me you won’t be disappointed.

    The current photos of the listing on Sykes really does not do it justice. I expected a working farm to be a little noisy in the mornings but it was so quite and peacefull. Covered hot tub and outdoor seating was fantastic as we did have a fair bit of rain and it made no difference at all. The owners were lovely and even came to rescue me when I got a bit lost. Everything was five star, it couldn't have been better. Many thanks.

    Thank you for your feedback. We were unaware of the extent of the current WiFi issues in the cottage until after your family left on 7 August as it was not mentioned it to us. Living in rural West Wales, WiFi is not always reliable and over the years we have invested in technology to try and improve connectivity and band-width. As a direct result of this feedback we pursued the matter again and have now benefited from advancement in technology and had 4G installed on 14 September. Our guests who stayed last week have said that the signal is "fantastic" and it extends to the courtyard garden. It is always a great disappointment to us if our guest experience is impaired in any way and we shall always do our utmost to address any shortcomings should they occur. We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay otherwise. Property Owner

    The setting is peaceful, but the price you pay for this is reliance on the car. There is nothing , such as a shop or a pub , that is within walking distance. That aside , there are so many beautiful places to visit. Small seaside towns , Aberporth, and Tresaith are quiet with lovely walks nearby. New Quay, is busier but great for dolphin spotting. The Welsh Wildlife trust at Cilgerran is worthy of a visit. Newcastle Emlyn is 3 miles away , handy for supplies and several pubs .

    Joy & Rod are both such lovely, friendly and kind people and honestly cannot do enough for you. The cottages is so well equipped you need not take hardly anything with you at all which is brilliant. The beds are extremely comfortable and the whole layout of the place is lovely, spacious and so clean. We walked in and were shown around by Joy, who made sure we knew exactly where everything was and how it worked. The Welcome goodybag was such a lovely touch and a really nice start to our first evening there. We thoroughly enjoyed the fresh chicken eggs from their chickens with our morning breakfasts and evening omelettes. We were also privileged enough to try some duck eggs as well, which were just as lovely. Rod kindly introduced us to his animals which was one big plus of staying on a farm, seeing the baby calves and lambs as well as the ducks, chickens and friendly farm cats, which will welcome you at the back door each morning. Having the hot tub was so nice after you had been out for a day trip or a long walk. We would just sit back and relax our muscles which was a lovely end to each day. The underfloor heating that warms the whole place is really good, we were warm and snug the whole week we there and it was lovely under foot too. There are so many things about this property which are lovely, the quality of furniture, extremely well equipped kitchen and attention to detail right through is brilliant. There are many places to see around the area but I would recommend:- -Sculptureheaven, a really lovely little place to visit and their cakes and cordials are wonderful. -Cenarth falls just round the corner, you can enjoy a lunch & drink in the pub opposite or a nice ice cream from the little gift shop, while taking a walk down the side of the river listening to the water rumbling over the stones. -Cardigan coastal farm park is a great place to visit if you have children to see the farm animals but even for us, just to enjoy the coastal walk above and see the Seals bobbing their heads up about the water and if you are lucky, a dolphin too. -Visit Caws Cenarth cheese farm and watch through windows into the factory as they make the cheese, separating the curds and whey and then down by hand putting the cards into the cheese moulds. Then walk across to the shop for some tastings, you can't help come away with bags of cheese, it's lovely. -The National Wool Museum just around the corner is quite interesting as well and worth a visit. We also visited a Goldmine, a Waterfall and a Coal mine, which were further afield but all really good too.

    The hot tub, 3d TV were a welcome treat and table football was a real winner with the childen (8 & 14). working farm so plenty of cows, calves, donkey;s and cats. Great location but you do need to drive to get to places but nothing is really too far away.

  • "We have just spent Christmas in the most beautiful cottage."

    The trouble you that Joy goes to to ensure your stay is perfect is something you don't see often anymore. Both Joy and Rod were welcoming and friendly without being invasive. The facilities were wonderful, lovely hot tub and spa bath, no expense has been spared on the furnishings, the beds were extremely comfortable and overall feel of the cottage was home from home. You are on a working farm which is wonderful, beautiful little cows as your neighbours, donkeys, baby lambs and horses. So sad to leave but so happy to have booked somewhere like this hidden gem, and have had the most wonderful Christmas.

    Good location and private, Rod and Joy have thought of everything you could possibly need with this cottage and spared no expense. Even down the the lovely welcome pack that includes goodies from the area... And the hot tub is a wonderful extra to have. We have stayed here twice and without a doubt would come back for a third time.
