Reviews

Very welcoming hosts and a great hot tub.
Cottage in good location for visiting coast (via steam railway) and Devil's Bridge attractions. Follow Public Footpath from near cottage through woods to local station/halt to catch steam train to Aberystwyth. Hafod Inn/Hotel does good food.Family from Norwich - 20th August 2017
It was very enjoyable. Very relaxing, a beautiful area. Enjoyed the local steam railway, it was a lovely way to see the countryside.David from Merseyside - 2nd July 2017
Lovely cottage, loved the hot tub, sauna and log burner. Jane and Ed are lovely friendly people.
Aberystwyth is really quaint, the Devil Bridge walk is good too but a hard slog.Stuart fromPorthcawl - 22nd March 2017
Picturesque location, home from home, beautiful views, had everything you could need. It was perfect.
Recommendations: Steam railway, new quay cliff top walks, Boat trip to see dolphins and seals, Devils bridge, Elan valley to see the dams and beautiful scenery.Sue from Coventry - 11th October 2016
Relaxing stay, hot tub & under cover bbq area are great bonus. Borth beach is a must as you can drive your car onto it. Great recommendation by Edryd.Hannah from High Wycombe - 3rd September 2016
