  • "We absolutely loved the property -it was more than we expected."

    The hosts were perfect and couldn’t do enough for us. It’s difficult to find any fault with the property except perhaps a coat rack to hang anoraks ( especially when wet). Also my 88yr old Mum had the single room & would’ve liked a bedside table & lamp. But otherwise 110%!!!!

  • "Really enjoyed our break - 4 adults and two grandchildren."

    Quite a few issues when we arrived, light bulb missing in the bedroom bedside lamp, no plug in ensuite bathtub, door didn't stay closed in bedroom, tumble dryer tripped out the electrics, downstairs shower temperature couldn't be adjusted. The owners happily came to inspect and some of the issues were rectified. We were also surprised we didn't receive a welcome pack as this is usual in all sykes cottages we have previously stayed in, however the owners did provide a dozen eggs at no charge. As we were leaving we had to retrieve a toy from behind a sofa, It was very dusty and didn't appear to have had a deep clean for a while. Mr and Mrs Evans were very friendly and were helpful with advice on where we should visit. The grandchildren loved their stay and thanks to Mr Evans for allowing our eldest grandchild to sit in his tractor and explore the farm.We had the pleasure of seeing one day old piglets, great base to stay for exploring the area around Cardigan and further afield.

    Beautiful area to explore, we particularly enjoyed the dolphin watch boat trip from New Quay and actually saw more dolphins in the bay than anywhere else in the world we have been. We hope to return.

  • "The owners were welcoming and friendly."

    We were allowed to go see the animals with our daughter, which she loved. The house was comfortable and we felt very much at home there. The property was child friendly, and the owners provided both highchair and travel cot, but also put baby gates at the top and bottom of the stairs. While we tend to visit different places for our holidays, we will definitely be looking to return one day, it was fabulous.

    The cottage was furnished comfortably and to a very high standard - I’d be more than happy to actually live there.

    We loved seeing the cows and the daily workings of the farmers - the entire farm was spotless and the welfare standards amazing. The finish and quality of the cottage is otutstanding and the jacuzzi bath was a big hit, the underfloor heating is super efficient and the dishwasher, washing machine and tumble dryer made life so easy. This property is large and spacious with plenty of room for 3 adults and 2 teenage boys. I would highly recommend this cottage and am likely to return.
