It was fantastic. The family enjoyed the stay, felt right at home, it was something that we all needed. We enjoyed the fresh bread that Menna delivered to us in the morning. Staff are lovely wherever you go especially with allowing pets in the shops etc. Nicola from Caerffili - 18th March 2017
The cottages were absolutely beautiful and John and Menna were so accommodating. We were blown away by their hospitality, they greeted us with a huge tray of delicious freshly baked breads, which was a huge treat. We are hoping to book to come back again next year as we were so impressed.
The service was outstanding from Best of Wales and I can't see that there is anything else that you could have done. Very friendly staff who were happy to help at any time of the day. Always a quick and polite response to emails, I could not rate you highly enough. Fantastic.Janine from Bath - 6th October 2015
