We enjoyed a lovely 3 night last minute getaway to Blaenlli, the cottages are so picturesque and tranquil, just what we needed. We where met by the friendly family and the lady showed us round the stunning cottage and also gave us a welcome basket with some lovely treats
The cottage is in a great position so that you can drive out to local attractions, we went to New Quay and enjoyed a day of perfect weather. The cottage was equipped with everything you could need (apart from hand soap) we throughly enjoyed our stay and will certainly be back for another relaxing Welsh getaway. Our one year old had great fun crawling all around the spacious and clean, modern cottage and we fell in love with the owners dog
