We loved everything about this property. I have regular breaks in this kind of accommodation, but by far this was the best.

Mrs Angela G,

Had a wonderful time during New Years in this beautiful cottage. The views from the sun room are fabulous to gaze at, and the isolation has allowed us to have a very relaxed time. Being accompanied by the sheep has made out stay way more interesting! The cottage is well equipped and maintained, and we had all the facilities that we required provided for us. The owner was very friendly and welcoming! We thank you for letting us stay in this fascinating and cosy place, will definitely visit again soon!

Mr Alex P,

We had the most wonderful Christmas break! It was so peaceful, quiet and beautiful! The cottage is so cosy and welcoming. We absolutely loved every second here. We hope to come back again next year. Thank you for the wine and mince pies.

Mr Rangel K,

Have stayed many times here over the last 10 years or so. Will be back.

Mr D B,

Had a wonderful time in your beautiful cottage. It was so peaceful and relaxing. A truly magical place!

Mrs Diane T,

We were trying to remember ... we think this might be our 6th or 7th visit here. Thank you once again - and we didn't get snowed in this time! Hooray!

Mr Stuart F,

The weather was not kind to us, but the cottage was delightful and everything works! Marvellous views and splendid isolation. One of the best cottages I have come across - will recommend to friends. The owners are doing a great job. Thank you.

Mr Maurice D,

Thank you! Your place is incredible - we absolutely loved it here. The views from the sun room are to die for and we had the most relaxing time. We will be back!

Ms Molly S,

We love Cwm Hesgen! We had such a peaceful time in this beautiful location - watching the house martins and buzzards, enjoying 'our' stream, wading through the moss in the forest up the hill opposite, and using it as a base to explore the national park. Thank you so much. We'll be back!

Mrs Sara D,

Thank you! Lovely and quiet place! Shep and fields all around, superb landscape. We have to come back here one time again.

Previous Customer,

The location was the best yet. We could not fault anything. I would like to say that your staff are fantastic, always happy to help and arrange payment plans to make holidaying possible. I highly recommend Wales cottage holidays. Stress free and always a pleasure to book through. Already booked for next yrs holiday through you. Thank you.

Emily G,

Highly recommended hide away holiday cottage. Very well equipped and comfortable. Loved the situation and the sheer peace. Owners very pleasant and helpful yet gave me complete privacy. Garden and conservatory make it an all year round pleasure. Kitchen very well equipped.

Mrs Lynda R,

We have loved staying in this beautiful, remote spot. The weather has been good to us apart from the torrential downpour on Thursday evening. We felt very sorry for the soggy sheep!

Mr S J,

Beautiful setting. We love the isolation. Wish we could live here! We will be back again.

Previous Customer,

A proper get away from it all location, excellent walks from the door and stunning countryside to explore.

Mrs Kathryn C,

Another fabulous year at this gorgeous cottage. We will be back again next year!

Previous Customer,

Thanks for this beautiful cottage. It's well maintained and the fact that it's set with all the tiniest possible requirements impressed us all. The best part about this cottage is the conservatory which has this beautiful view.

Mr Lokesh D,

What a fabulous location! Remote, peaceful, good place to get away from it all. Cottage cosy, warm, everything at hand. Reluctant to leave. Big thank you to the owners.

Mr Neil D,
