  • "Spacious, comfortable accommodation with delightful hilly views which makes it a great place to relax (even when it rains!"

    ) as it's off the beaten track. Ideally situated for walking or driving to so many other places which are well worth visiting. The hot tub and the games room were a bonus. We would happily return there in the future.

  • "Our family absolutely loved this property."

    It had all the facilities we needed and was extremely clean and comfortable. The games room and hot tub were a real treat as well. The location was perfect for us. There are many lovely walks very close by and the local church and shell house (open on a Thursday) are well worth a visit. My Mum, in particular, was fascinated by the early medieval, cross carved stone near the top of the drive. The hosts were really lovely, very friendly, helpful and welcoming. I would definitely recommend this property to family and friends and we all would love to come back.

  • "The best cottage we've ever stayed in!"

    The open plan living area upstairs is perfect to take in the view and with the balcony door open the dog is kept busy on look out. Bedrooms are very comfortable and being downstairs kept nicely cool on Wales' hottest ever day at 36C. The kitchen is well equipped, we only ate out once (recommend the Pizza Tipi in Cardigan). The garden and hot tub have a great view and are enclosed, so no worries with a dog. The barn has a games room with ping pong, pool, fussball and darts. We had fun with our own indoor league competition. Fress eggs available and very tasty too! From the cottage there is a path down to the river with a small pool, perfect for the dog during our very hot stay. Nearby Cardigan is full of nice small shops, Poppins Sands, Blue Lagoon, Oakwood theme Park and the national Botanical Gardens. The owners are very helpful and with their recommendations helped make this stay our of the best holidays ever. Thanks.

  • "This is a beautiful holiday home."

    Its really well equipped throughout, everything is to a high standard, and when we arrived we noticed immediately how clean it was, it sparkled! The setting is ideal; it's in a quiet place in a farm setting, yet really easy to get to the coast and other places of interest. We went to Aberporth, and Mwnt are nearby , and further afield to Tenby. All have lovely beaches .There are some lovely walks from the cottage, with beautiful scenery, including a waterfall. For runners it's great too, as the trails round the farm allow some off road running on good surfaces and no traffic to worry about. The cottage is really dog friendly, as are several pubs nearby, and even in the bigger resorts such as Tenby. Nice change to be able to 'eat in' instead of being stuck outside if the weather isn't great. During the week we spent the weather was brilliantly sunny. We have no hesitation in recommending this holiday home, it's fantastic, and the owners live nearby on site and are really nice and friendly. We'll definitely be going again.
