Reviews

This must be the prettiest little cottage in all of Wales! The combination of luxurious and cosy accommodation, in a remote, farm setting is absolutely perfect. The bedding and towels are scrumptious!!! And not forgetting the most welcome, "welcome tea". Sarah is a very relaxed yet efficient hostess, with a friendliness that really makes you feel at home.Rose from Plymouth - 22nd November 2017
Very nice comfy cottage, friendly hosts, breathtaking surroundings.Johan & Ann from Belgium - 1st October 2017
Fantastic place and lovely hosts. The place is furnished to such a high standard and I would recommend it to others. Beautiful place and a lovely part of Wales. Thank you for a lovely break. There's so much to do in the area it's hard to say what's best to recommend. Definitely enjoy the local countryside, eat well at the numerous restaurants and pubs have a trawl through Trip Advisor first and definitely go to the gold mine near Llandovery.Couple from Kent - 10th September 2017

This is THE place to go.
If you want to escape the rat race. Rolling hills and gentle mountains as a backdrop; farm animals a plenty; bubbling streams and rivers and lush meadows and emerald forests. Although the cottage is on the farm; you still feel you're in your own "bubble". The surrounding roads are not for the feint-hearted but the trade off is your views are worth the slow steep climbs and hair raising descents ! The pace of life is delightfully slow - ideal for recharging your batteries. I would recommend the goldmines; waterfall country and the lady of the lake lake (on a brighter day) - check the weather forecast and if you get a warm/hot day - Rhossili Bay is well worth the drive !

Thank you for a lovely stay. Little "homely" touches were very welcome... and I can't thank you enough for being my knight in shining armour when my tyre burst ! You turned a crisis into a minor blemish in an instance. We had an amazing time. Thanks for the freedom to mix with the animals on the farm and explore. I have fallen in love with South Wales now !

Lisa and Family - 9th August 2017
Rare Gem
Wow was our reaction as we entered the cottage. Very high standards of presentation and cleanliness The afternoon tea provided was a lovely surprise as well. The scenery is stunning and so many fabulous views to enjoy as it offered an escape for us. Lovely walks, local shops and great pubs, simply lovely.Visitors from Australia - 22nd June 2017
It was a lovely welcome and an extremely good place to stay.
Tips: Ask for local tips from the owners of the farm.Andreas from Germany - 18th June 2017
This is a beautiful cottage in amazing surroundings off the beaten track. Sarah and Jon have gone the extra mile to make the stay perfect, they had thought of everything. The gold mine was a great day out, make sure you do both tours. We walked up Pen y Fan and visted the tin mine and waterfall near Neath.Family from Sandhurst - 30th May 2017
Fabulous stay at Llwynrhosser, Sarah and Jon made us welcome and the cottage is very modern and comfortable. We especially loved how soft and cozy the beds were. The scenery in the countryside is beautiful to lots to explore.Couple from Cardiff - 23rd May 2017
