Reviews

Very high spec cottage. Good layout. Could not fault it. Fantastic week and could have done with another in this lovely property! Wonderful friendly hosts. We had fantastic weather and were able to enjoy it on the patio and use the hot tub every day. BBQ evenings were wonderful. Watched the moon and stars rising each night. Magical holiday! Would recommend for a relaxing break away from it all and would return. Very friendly and efficient service.Sarah from Hampshire - 2nd July 2018
A beautiful property with stunning surroundings. Mr Kristian Johanson - 28th May 2018
The cottage is in a fabulous position with wonderful views and not far from anywhere.Wendy from Nottingham - 2nd April 2018
We had the most amazing stay here, the owners are simply lovely and available whenever we needed them but completely unobtrusive. We were welcomed with fresh flowers, delicious cake, roaring log fire and wonderful clean hot tub with the most amazing views! Cottage was extremely clean and with all mod cons and useful local information. Our dog loved the friendly farm dogs and fantastic local walks while our children loved the freedom of the local area to explore and thoroughly enjoyed the well stocked games room next door. The cottage feels wonderfully isolated but the pretty local town is only five mins drive away and has everything you could need. We have recommended this cottage to many people since we got home and will definitely return, first class break!Mrs A Trainer - 17th February 2018
Over all excellent - excellent facilities, beautiful scenery, value for money with an added bonus of the hot tub. Would definitely like to visit again.Alison from Neath - 8th January 2018

Amazing, really beautiful place where we felt very welcome. If you are looking for a holiday for you and your dogs, this is the place. The dogs were very welcome and we were very relaxed because of this.Family from Tyne And Wear - 16th April 2017
Great week and hot tub was amazing.
Glengower at Aberystwyth is a must and is dog friendly. The Indian restaurant in Lampeter, Shapla Tandoori is also excellent.Friends from South Yorkshire - 12th March 2017
