What a wonderful place to stay. We had a really warm welcome and the cottage is so warm and cosy. We couldn't have hoped for anywhere nicer for New Year. We spent three days walking around the coast from Kidwelly to Laugharne. Magnificent views and wonderful castles at Kidwelly, Llansteffan and Laugharne, and lunch sitting outside Dylan Thomas's boathouse was the perfect start to the year.Deborah from London - 12th January 2018

We have had a relaxing few day's away in your beautiful cottage, the perfect location for us. We will be returning in the summer to enjoy the patio and the beautiful countryside. Many thanks. 30th Dec/ 2nd Jan 2016Andrew, Nicola and Lynne, Cwmbran - 30th December 2015
I had almost given up trying to find a suitable cottage for just two of us over Christmas when I stumbled across this amazing cottage. My husband and I have had a glorious week of solitude, long wind swept walks and cosy fires with Christmas telly. It was a much needed escape and the Welsh weather this December only consolidated the feeling of warmth the cottage brings. The Rayburn is good for cooking Christmas dinner, the living room cosy and the bathroom perfect for 2 hour baths. We'll be back for all of this again. Thank you Paula, you were perfect. PS. Please can I adopt your dogs ? 23rd/30th December 2015Jane and Paul, Surrey - 23rd December 2015
We were looking for a relaxing short break away and we certainly found it at the Old House. Looking at the building record folder you can see how much work has gone into the renovation to bring it to such a high standard. Paula (Owner) very helpful and informative. 4th/7th December 2015P and J Addis, Merthyr Tydfil - 4th December 2015
We had a really lovely time here ! The house was lovely ! the only let down was the weather but we didn't come here for that. x 27th/30th November 2015Clark Family, Wiltshire - 27th November 2015
