  • "A very comfy warm home , surrounded by Ancient Forests and rippling streams."

    Well equipped, very quiet and serene. A beautiful decked area to Star Watch and listen to the rhythm of the night. I can imagine that in the summer the place is beautiful...because it was stunning in the rain. # The perfect hideaway.

  • "Clean, spacious, well equipped property, owner very professional and polite, as for lack of clothes drying facility, there is a clothes airer if you look."

  • "What an amazing cottage."

    The cottage was clean, tidy and felt very cosy. The fire place is lovely and toasty when lit. The views from the garden are absolutely amazing! There's There's stream that runs near the cottage which you can hear running whilst sat on the decking. It's not to far from the quaint village of Newcastle Emlyn which has some lovely independent shops and castle ruins to explore. It is an absolutely amazing place and we can't wait to stay again!

  • "Not very clean."

    Oven old, filthy and not working. Shower filthy. Dishes and pans filthy. No mobile signal. Too close to the road for dog. Dark, cold and dingy. Disappointed.

  • "A beautiful place to stay with both surfing and kayaking easily accessible."

    The house was clean and cosy and the owner was really helpful. I would definitely recommend this cottage and we plan to stay again. Highlights were the stream running through the garden, lovely local walks and top surfing beaches only an hours drive away.

  • "Property was very good, but a few points: - 1."

    Garden was not suitable for children to be able to play unattended. 2. An outside clothes line would be beneficial given the amount of beach visits most attendees will make. Failing that a tumble dryer. 3. Stairs were not easy to use, an issue exacerbated by the lack of upstairs toilet. Generally a lovely cottage though.

  • "The cottage is remote on a woodland road, but with an excellent journey of 4 miles to a small town that has something for everyone."

    the log burner in the lounge is efficient and is always a first consideration when we choose a cottage, and will return to this one. A first class cottage very well presented by the owners.
