Reviews

Stunning location and views and very welcoming owners.Rebecca from Stafford - 4th September 2018
Lovely, spacious, well furnished cottage.Sue from Leamington Spa - 31st August 2018
A lovely rural location, very helpful owners. The grandchildren loved all the freedom of space in the grounds also the scooters and peddle tracto loaned to them! A very safe place for them to play.Mrs Valerie Payne - 23rd July 2018
We had a lovely stay at Brynheulwen. Wonderful location, close enough to amenities, but rural enough for beautiful views and lots of sheep. The owners were incredibly welcoming too. We thank them for their generosity. The children loved seeing the lambs and all the space to run around safely was great. This is a great place for a family holiday. Aberystwyth and the surrounds was a great area to stay. The town itself has all you need, but also lots of beaches nearby e.g. Borth for Kite flying and rock pooling.Sara from Derbyshire - 2nd April 2018
The property was better than expected, very clean and the home owner was fabulous. Everything was perfect. Aberystwyth is beautiful. Take the B roads, they are more scenic.Dave from Calgary, Canada - 9th September 2016
A family holiday with children and grandchildren. We needed space and we got it in plenty. Lovely weather and surroundings with welcoming and helpful owners. Borth beach is awesome, miles of sands and dunes, great for a day out but take all you need for the day so you can explore away from the car park. We enjoyed exploring the area.Ian from West Midlands - 3rd September 2016
This property is fantastic, it is the best equipped and cleanest cottage we have been to. All washing machine tablets, handwash, towels and toilet rolls supplied which we have never had in a holiday cottage. It is a credit to the owners. It was everything we wanted for a family holiday.
Tips: Visit Aberaeron, New Quay - dolphin trip a bit disappointing though, we saw more in the harbour. Borth is nice. Children enjoyed painting money boxes at Blue Island Ceramics.Elaine from Bolton - 8th August 2016
Fantastic. Spacious clean well equipped property. Lovely owners and ideally located for most surrounding towns and places of interest. Aberdovey is a lovely quaint town, crabbing by the harbour is great fun if you have kids, the honey farm is very interesting. Pd's on the front of the beach is good value for money for fish and chips and also serves a variety of ice creams.Family from Nottinghamshire - 6th August 2016
Fantastic. More than we expected. It was perfect.
Recommendations - Devils Bridge..New Quay & Steam train from Devils Bridge to Aberystwyth. Betws-y-Coed.Mark from Dunstable, Bedfordshire - 11th June 2016
