We stayed here for my friends birthday, it was the best place to stay for a relaxing get away. The cottage is amongst such beautiful countryside and has an inviting log fire making the experience extra cosy and comfortable. We got to use the jacuzzi hot tub whilst looking at the stars which was amazing. I would definitely recommend and will be coming back!

Miss B,

Where to start?? One word will suffice I think... Welsh paradise, an absolutely stunning place to be... We really didn't want to leave xx
