Reviews

It was a beautiful cottage and we all had a lively stay in a tranquil part of the countryJoy - 7th January 2019
Beautiful property, appeared as new but subsequently discovered 6 years old. Kept in immaculate condition. Beds amazingly comfortable. Mrs Julie Barratt - 22nd July 2018
Fabulous. 5 star property, slightly out the way but we knew that when booking so absolute choice. Would highly recommend this cottage. Devil's Bridge walk is great but only for the able bodied, Aberdovey is beautiful. Tthe lady who dealt with our booking was fantastic!Fleur from Lincolnshire - 16th February 2018
A truly 1st class cottage, beautifully kept and a home from home.
Tips: Make the time to visit the local area; Aberaeron for a lovely harbour setting, Borth for a stunning cliff top walk or surfing lessons or the beach, Hafod for countryside and forest walks.Stuart from Liverpool - 21st August 2017
One of the best properties we have stayed in, clean, more than well equipped and owner very helpful.
Recommendations: Great meals at the New Cross Inn.
Railway, a superb trip, also a drive up through the valley. Nature reserve at Borth well worth a visit. Also Devils BridgeJoy & Graham from West Country - 2nd June 2017
Beautiful property, really comfortable & well equipped. Very friendly, helpful owners. Lovely surroundings & lots to see in local area. We enjoyed Borth & New Quay - both beautiful beaches. The Red Kite centre, Hafod Estate & Devils falls are all really worth a visit.Claire from Swindon - 15th April 2017
Cannot praise this location more, it was first class, worthy of its five star rating. We are seasonal renters so have stayed in numerous properties over the years, this one rates one of the best.
Great hot-tub. Good places to visit, good places to eat out and wonderful walk within the location of the property. We had a wonderful break, helped by the weather which is always important.Anthony from Tamworth, Staffs - 29th January 2017
Thoroughly enjoyable all round. everything was just perfect.
Tips: Just get out and about and explore the beautiful Welsh countryside and hospitality.Friends from Bridgend - 24th November 2016
