Reviews

All perfect. Lovely property. Great location. Nice and peaceful at the cottage but plenty to do within a short drive.Group from Haverfordwest - 3rd November 2017
Everything was perfect couldn't have asked for anything more
Peaceful, relaxing and absolutely perfect just what we all needed and was very homely. People were very welcoming and enjoyed waking up to the sound of the countryside We enjoyed seeing the Devils Bridge, walks by the waterfall and visiting the local towns.Laura from Somerset - 25th July 2017
The property is in a great location - beautiful views and peaceful yet close to facilities such as shops. The cottage has everything you need and is decorated and furnished to a great standard. The owners are very welcoming.
Recommends: Walk on Borth beach at low tide to see the ancient submerged forest - it is quite a sight.Couple from Weston-super-mare - 8th July 2017
2nd time we have been to this property and it's still brilliant.
Forest near by and sand dunes are worth a visit.Noel from Crewe, Cheshire Add Tag to Answer - 7th March 2017
The cottage was outstanding, spotlessly clean, with all mod cons! The owners gave us a lovely welcome. The hot tub was an added bonus and fab. The cottage was beautifully decorated and it was lovely and warm. Also it is easy to find, and was in a good location to visit Aberystwyth and other neighbouring towns. I will definitely go back. Outstanding.
Aberystwyth is a favourite of mine with plenty of coffee shops! There is a beautiful promenade to walk along and plenty of benches along the way to sit and watch the sea.Louise from Swansea - 6th February 2017
Very relaxing. Beautiful cottage, excellent facilities, home from home.
Recommendations: Black Lion pub for food, steam train ride to Devils Bridge. King Arthur's Labyrinth.Michelle from Bristol - 29th October 2016
