  • "A gorgeous little house and perfect for 2 people with views across a lawned private garden offering privacy, peace and quiet."

    Everything was clean and tastful, with a comfy lounge leather suite, and all mod cons, the property seemingly a rather recent new build. The owners were delightful leaving us a generous welcome basket of Welsh teas and Welshcakes, and evening drinks, with a caring thought towards Covid products. We loved staying at Dragon's Den which had many tiny stone carvings of dragons hiding here and there in the gardens. A convenient spot for many sightseeing spots within a short drive to shops. Thank you to both the owners for a really lovely place to stay.

  • "Very good property overall, good value for money and within easy reach of main roads."

    I felt it was a bit far from a good dog walking spot, and I found the car parking spot a bit steep.

  • "This is a lovely little holiday rental and was exactly as described."

    The owners were welcoming but didn't intrude on our stay and there were fresh flowers and some welcome goodies on our arrival. The garden is beautiful but isn't completely secure so if you are bringing your dog be aware of this. Excellent facilities.

  • "Would definitely recommend Ffau'r Ddraig to anyone."

    A lovely warm welcome from the owner and a very well equipped property, well presented, clean and sanitized, with off street parking, at the end of a very quiet cul de sac. Lots of information for local attractions and if you have any questions, the owner, who lives next door, is only too pleased to help. We were also offered the use of the owners back garden, which on a nice day, would be very relaxing.

  • "It was a little difficult with the dogs, mainly the puppy as the shared garden was vast and not 100% secure."

    We needed to keep them on the leads when toileting. However in saying this the owners were very happy for us to use their garden.

  • "Everything was just perfect in the accommodation."

    So clean. There was a lovely vase of fresh flowers and a welcoming pack. There was everything you needed and more. The owners were so friendly and nothing was too much trouble for them. I was sent a friendly e mail before our arrival giving me information about ket collection and a contact number. The garden was amazing our dog loved it and so did we, a very relaxing experience. The cottage is very conveniently located for shops restaurants pubs and good access to the beaches and for other attraction. Would definitely recommend people to stay there abd I would love to return there.

    From the warm welcome email prior to arriving to the very helpful information pack set the tone for a wonderful stay. For the two of us it was a home from home everything we need was provided. The accommodation was clean, comfortable and upto date with many homely touches. It is an ideal place to stay with the hosts next door ready with recommendations for visits and places to see.
