  • "The cottage and it's peaceful surroundings far exceeded our expectations, the photos simply do not do it justice."

    Despite the weather we had a fantastic much needed week away and we are definitely looking to book again later in the year. Rowena and Bob were first class hosts. What more could you want.

  • "The cottage was very well thought out a real home from home."

    Spotlessly clean and lovely and warm. The garden was amazing the dogs absolutely loved it. The fields are right on the door step to walk the dogs. The views are stunning and having the chickens and gander wandering around was the icing on the cake. Bob and Rowena are lovely hosts they're there if needed them but not intrusive. I would definitely recommend Blaenffynnon. It's one of the best cottages we've stayed in and we've had quite a few holiday cottages holidays.

  • "A lovely cottage with everything needed for a great, relaxing holiday."

    It's peaceful and so quiet with wonderful views. Our dog Missy loved the fact she had a very large field to play in and even a duck pond to cool off, though she did avoid it when the goose and goslings were about! All in all if you're looking for peace and relaxation then you wont find better. Bob and Rowenna were on hand with info and chats and the welcome basket was great.
