    Brilliant, comfortable holiday retreat
    Great eating places offering local food
    Kenneth, Nov 2014

    Blaenglanhanog is the cleanest place we have ever stayed in and very comfortable.

    The owners were unobtrusive, but friendly, helpful and offered the opportunity to purchase delicious home-cooked meals and other food items. The cottage is in a lovely, quiet situation, but there's a shop in the nearby village

    We recommend Ynys Las beach, walks in Hafren Forest
    Ruth from St Helens, Aug 2014

    Peaceful , tranquil, cosy and comfortable place to recharge our very tired batteries

    Just explore, so much beautiful surroundings how could anyone not find something of interest.
    Couple from Surrey, Jul 2014

    The cottage was wonderful.

    The owners, Liz and Jeremy, have thought of everything. The information they have compiled is second to none

    Bodnant Gardens and Caernarfon Castle are outstanding
    Karen from Colarado USA, May 2014

    It was a perfect place to chill out and 'recharge the batteries'

    The cottage is in beautiful surroundings and the owners were very friendly and helpful.

    Walk in the Hafren forest along the river. There are several walks of varying abilities. Visit Machynlleth, there's a great market there on Wednesday's and some interesting shops. The RSPB reserve at Ynys Hir is also worth a visit.
