  • "Brynglas was warm and welcoming and we loved it."

    A very relaxing stay in a beautiful location. Thank you

  • "We stayed at the beginning of November and found a really lovely cottage thoughtfully updated."

    It is worth reading Simon’s comments on the parking beforehand as although we had no issue, at the height of the season I imagine it could be difficult. Cilgerran is a lovely village the beaches plentiful and the roads quiet/empty. Thank you guys this was a rare find and we were sad to leave. John and sue

  • "Cafetiere had not been cleaned since previous guests."

    Had to clean out en-suite shower shower waste, water would not drain. Had to clean rotating brushes of hover head. Went to use colander, had to wash first because it was dirty.

  • "Apart from the fact that the cottage itself was FABULOUS in every way, there was a hickup when we took it over on the 16th."

    July. It was clear from the paperwork, that Sykes understood there were 2 children within the party. When we let ouselves into the cottage, there was only 1 bed in the room where the children were to sleep. We found the second bed underneath, and because the linen cupboard lock did not work properly, were able to find appropriate bedding for it, so all was well after about 20 mins input from ourselves. After an ardous journey, it would have been nice if Sykes Holiday cottage cleaners or preparers had read their brief properly and prepared the room for the children accordingly!! There was no excuse for not getting it right.

  • "I would rate the property 3 ticks, definitely not 4 or higher."

    Due to the age of the property it has been updated, but the most disappointing things were: despite the listing saying it is suitable for children there is no fire guard. The double bed upstairs was not very comfortable, it left us aching after 5 nights, the TV wasn't very user friendly, and due to the floorboards upstairs literally only being floorboards (so much so you can see through them to downstairs) you can literally hear everything someone does upstairs, in the bathroom there is no privacy at all (literally none) and putting our daughter to sleep meant we had to whisper downstairs, not have the TV on, etc. Very frustrating.

  • "Super cottage in a very pretty rural location - at the edge of a wildlife reserve."

    The cottage has been lovingly restored by its owners and their sustainability credentials are evident in the materials used. Perfect for a country break and ideal for dogs. Plenty of great walking trails on your doorstep and super beaches well within driving distance. Would have liked a mobile phone signal but the internet was fine - so could make Whatsapp calls. Owners were very responsive when we managed to lock ourselves out of the cottage!! Would highly recommend.

  • "The property was delightful, very comfortable beds with good quality bedding, sofas not as comfy though."

    However the house was a wonderful peaceful place to be, the garden is beautiful, we did a bit of gardening just getting rid of a few weeds. The house was immaculately clean, fab showers, a home from home. The only problem we had was with the TV however we contacted the owner who came over and sorted it out, a very lovely man and interesting to talk to. He told us all about the property and the restoration that took them a year to complete. Ian and Candy

  • "We loved our stay at Brynglas."

    The cottage was very comfortable, very warm, spotlessly clean and had everything that we needed for a winter break. The owners are very helpful, and we liked the large basket of firewood and snacks on arrival. The cottage was larger than we expected and includes the smaller white building attached to the right of the property that also has a red door, and is a great layout for a family of four with an ensuite bedroom on the ground floor and bedrooms for the children on the upper floor. The location is excellent, and we especially enjoyed spending time on Poppit sands with our two young children.

  • "Brynglas was lovely and impeccably clean."

    The heating was incredibly efficient and the house was lovely and toasty, especially with the fire on. Kitchen is really well stocked with all the equipment you could need and the bedding is all great quality and really cosy. One small critique which I imagine is a quirk of an old house us that there's no real sound insulation between upstairs and downstairs. Fine for a group of adults but might be tricky with kids who needed to go to bed earlier! Louise was also super helpful and efficient when I stupidly left my laptop behind, and arranged for it to be delivered back to me.

  • "The cottage and the location was very pretty."

    The rooms were very tastefully decorated in keeping with the property. The hand wash, cleaning products including washing up liquid were supplied and all biodegradable, which was really appreciated as in these natural surroundings it was great to know no harm was being caused to the environment. The local shop is well stocked and there are 2 pubs within walking distance if required. The Wildlife centre's entrance is very close though still a walk into the centre itself. We went canoeing down the Cilgerran gorge from the Wildlife centre and it was fantastic. For people who love nature and care about it this place is excellent. The owners have clearly put a lot of thought into what they provide. Cardigan and St Dogmaels are very close and of course ther are wonderful beaches close by too. A sunset at Mwnt beach is very special.

  • "The cottage was beautifully decorated, comfortable and clean."

    We had everything we needed. There was a really nice attention to eco friendly cleaning products and it was easy to use the recycling and food waste facilities. The location was great and we enjoyed cycling on the cycle track from the lane near the house. We also walked through the woods from the footpaths leading from behind the cottage. It was very convenient for visiting local beaches and the coastal path. Would love to return one day.

  • "Brynglas was a little oasis of calm and it exceeded all our expectations sitting in the garden listening to the sound of the stream was heavenly."

    The pictures of the garden do not do it justice, it is much bigger than we thought it would be. It is very well located and we went to a different beach every day. Very clean, cosy and well equipped.

  • "The internet and smart tv only worked for the first 2 days, after that there was no signal."

    Other than that the cottage was fine apart from lack of any cooks knives. Log burner was good but very little to do in village. The only food option was a cafe.

    Thank you for your feedback about Brynglas and its location. We're glad that the cottage was generally fine and that you enjoyed the log burner. However, we were sorry to hear that you had no internet for the last part of your stay. The internet signal at the cottage is very good and the router just needed to be reset by turning it off and on again. It's a real shame that you didn't contact us as it could have been resolved straight away. We're a bit puzzled about the feedback regarding the cooks knives as we are passionate about cooking so we provide 2 Victorinox knives at the cottage which were both there when we checked after receiving your feedback.The village is in a tranquil spot. Unfortunately the pub serving food is closed at the moment although there are two others open for a drink and as you say, there is also the tearoom. The Wildlife centre and excellent cafe is nearby and open every day except Christmas day and there is a pub serving food at Penybryn, a 15 minute walk away. The village shop also have a great range of produce and do a good breakfast bap. Property Owner

    The kids and Grand kids used the upstairs bedrooms and bathroom, and nan and grandad got their own ground floor bedroom and on-suite. The cottage is well appointed and presented to a high standard, For the more adventurous the gorge track to the nature reserve is a must (we did take the easy way back though via the road which is flat). Theres a local shop within walking distance, although at present the pub is closed. We found lots to entertain the kids, stunning views, fresh air and exercise wore them out. A great break for all ages.

  • "Fabulous cottage with great facilities."

    We stayed as a party over 3 generations - 4 adults and 2 teen boys. The cottage was big enough and very comfortable, even with the dog, and we were able to put her crate in the fireplace alcove. The wood burner was a great addition (although we used the wood very quickly) and the heating system was also great when we were coming back from February beach trips. The village itself has a well-stocked shop but the pubs weren't open when we visited and I wonder if they're actually permanently closed, like the Chinese take away. This is, however, a great cottage. The only slight downside is the parking which was OK but a little tight; not sure what it will be like in the summer.
