Reviews

Peaceful, relaxing and time with family
We enjoyed, lovely drives, the Elan Valley and visiting good beaches.Debi - 24th July 2017
Fantastic cottage, they thought of everything and would recommend to anyone. The local hotel served excellent food.Family from Hereford - 3rd September 2016
Very relaxing - home from home - just what the doctor ordered ! Oh and the double bed was more comfortable than my own at home.
Recommendations: Steam train a must,ElanValley stunning and feeding the red kites amazingFamily from Leicestershire - 6th August 2016
A fantastic bungalow - a real home from home place. Everything you needed was there. Very clean and tidy. You could sit back and have a relaxing holiday. Very peaceful. A day out in Aberyswth is a must. Great shops and fantastic places to eat. My daughter is vegan and there were restaurants to cater for her too. Also a ride on the steam train at Devils Bridge was good. We enjoyed everything.Michelle from Warwickshire - 30th July 2016
Excellent property in a lovely location. We would thoroughly recommend to anyone. The Red Kites are fantastic.
Recommendations: Visit the Red Kites just a few miles up the road. Ride on the train to Aberystwyth. Good walks in Hafod Forest.Couple from Dorset - 2nd July 2016
