Lovely and warm with the option of a fire in the wood burner. Kitchen very well equipped, you could even bake a cake if you wanted to as mixer and cake tins are provided. Lovely powerful shower and plenty of hot water on tap. Some low ceilings but you very quickly get used to those or put those that don't in another room! Easy to find and plenty of amazing walks nearby. Also not too far from the coast and we would recommend the beaches at Aberporth for a swim, even in November. I’m sure there are lots of other amazing beaches nearby but we ran out of time to explore more options. Would recommend this cottage for anyone who wants a lovely break in this gorgeous part of Wales. Thank you for the lovely feedback you provided after your recent stay at our home from home in this beautiful part of Wales.We strive to make it comfortable & relaxing for all our guests.We are pleased that you found it warm and made full use of the wood burner.You are more than welcome to stay again to explore further.Lucy&Bob.

The area is beautiful and wonderful to explore. Some beautiful woodlands to explore just a short drive away, and the beaches around cardigan are excellent especially for dogs.

Hopefully with better weather Lucy & Bob Property Owner Reviewed by Lynne4.7★Dec 2022 "'this is a most beautiful cottage." Furniture and appliances were first class. The owners were most helpful when we encountered some problems. Like no heater as my husband had fiddled with the thermostat... We found the location a bit remote as we are a bit older and found travelling the one lane roads difficult at night. But as I said the cottage is one of the nicest we have stayed at.

Our dogs loved the big open ground floor, many walks nearby and the treats that were kindly left for them. We couldn't have asked for any more. Thanks for a wonderful family stay!! Reviewed by Roy5.0★Jul 2022 "The cottage was lovely with everything you could possibly need - a lovely, well eqipped kitchen." We usually stay in a caravan so was a luxury to have a washing machine & dishwasher. Also, having a shower room with a great shower as well as a bathroom meant no one had to wait! The beds were comfy & we all slept well. There were instructions for everything & most things were easy to work out. We are familiar with the surrounding area but had never been to Star before. I loved being able to buy fresh eggs locally. I enjoyed sitting in the garden every morning listening to the stream which was very relaxing & we were lucky enough with the weather all week to be able to do that. If you want peace & quiet, this is the place! Reviewed by Anne5.0★May 2022 "Lovely welcoming cottage and beautiful location." Would be more than happy to stay again. Reviewed by Louis4.7★Aug 2021 "The cottage was lovely and most of the facilities were impressive." However, the wi-fi was almost non-existent and none of our party (5) could make or receive phone calls on our mobiles. Even walking up the hill a couple of hundred yards did not produce a network connection. We were from three different households, all with children and grandchildren whom we like to stay in contact with, but this was not possible once we returned to the cottage each evening. One of our group, who is self-employed, left 2 days earlier than planned because he was out of reach of his customers for long periods. He texted my sister at 9pm to let her know that he arrived home safely, but this was not received until over 2 hours later by her. She could not phone him, as no network. Planning day trips without a signal for GPS was problematic and we had to drive a mile up the road before we could do this. I think we should have been informed that the wi-fi was very sporadic and phone network would be lost, particularly given the price that we paid. Also, the cottage, although lovely, was very dark and the very small patio areas did not get any evening sunshine, which was a shame, as it would have been nice to have had the option to dine outside, as you do when on holiday and the weather is beautiful. We are glad to hear you thought our 18th century cottage was lovely. With regard to mobile signal this would have been explained to you if we could have contacted you prior to your visit . We provide a landline which can be used and the telephone number is in the cottage information pack. We were concerned that you had not contacted us 48 hours before your arrival and we ended up contacting Sykes to give you the code for the key safe. Regarding the broadband we hadn't had any problems with the internet as we stayed the week before your visit, unfortunately in the village we don't get fibre optic broadband. When Bob rang on the Monday evening he said if there were any problems do not hesitate to ring us or the housekeeper, but neither of us or Sykes had any communication from yourselves so we could rectify the problem, the first we knew about it was when the review was posted. We have since had it checked and there doesn't seem to be an issue with it, so it must have been a blip in the system. We are always happy to help where possible.

This cottage is quite probably my ideal home. We were so sad to leave... Reviewed by Elizabeth5.0★Aug 2019 "Star Mill cottage is a lovely place to stay for exploring west Wales." We were me and my wife in the open plan bedroom, 2 children in the twin room and my Dad in the double bedroom. The facilities were great, with us finding things around the cottage every day that we didn't think we needed e.g. Ice blocks in the freezer, cool boxes, body boards for the kids, beach parasol, catchup TV, blue ray player, dvd's, books, OS maps, washing powder, tea, coffee, cling film, tupawere. Thank you to Bob And Lucy, a really well thought out holiday property that you obviously care about and want others to enjoy as much as you do. Reviewed by Lee5.0★Jul 2019 "Having read the rave reviews we were disappointed, cottage is extremely dark , densely populated with furniture ( eg." abundance of seating considering it is only for six people maximum) Main bedroom lacks privacy if more than 2 adults staying we did not have issue with this as there was only 2 of us. Bed extremely uncomfortable and overcrowded with furniture. The upstairs toilet facilities make it difficult for a male to address due to sloping ceiling and beams. Parking for a larger car is difficult. On the positive side the down stairs shower room was very good and kitchen well equipped. The location is good.

Reviewed by Elena4.7★Jun 2018 "Lovely clean and comfortable cottage in a quiet hamlet but near to pubs and beaches." So restful sitting next to the stream listening to all the birds. The owners' kindly provided a starter pack of milk, fresh eggs, brownies, wine and doggie treats. There was also a well equipped kitchen with tea, coffee and sugar to start the stay off. One of the houses had an honesty box where you could buy a box of half dozen fresh eggs for a £1 and they were the best eggs ever had for breakfast. The shower was brilliant and the bath was a real decadent experience, due to the high water pressure a little bit of bubble bath went a long way, only thing I didn't think of was a glass of bubbly! Won't forget next time. It was a lovely touch that the owner's rang on the Sat to check if everything was okay. As they had left full instructions on how everything worked luckily I didn't need to bother them. Would certainly go back and would highly recommend if you want a nice peaceful place to stay but near to everything you need to enjoy the holiday.

The cottage itself was extremely well equipped having 2 bathrooms, one with a shower. It was very spacious but quaint and had every utensil one would want or need. The mezzanien-type master bedroom did not give much privacy to the occupants, but it is probably to be expected in such old properties.
