Reviews

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
