    Fabulous 60th birthday present. Yet another fabulous, quiet and peaceful, amazing visit to our favourite place in all the world (next to our own home). Oeter and Susan have always done something new, added something extra each time we visit the Dynamic Duo! Don't know how they do it all, but, thank all goodness they do! xxx

    Thanks, had a wonderful time. A great base to explore central Wales & Cambrian Coast. Felt we were really part of nature & had a good sense of rural Wales. Thanks to Peter for all the useful advice and help during our stay!
