Overall, we were very pleased with the whole process. Booking was easy and information provided very useful although I am afraid we didn't get to try out the Welsh language! Loved the cottage and the owner, Nikki was extremely helpful and the information book so useful. My biggest regret is that we didn't have more time to stay even though it was a winter booking. Would love to come back in summertime and make more use of the beautiful garden and walk up to the dear little seating area at the top with the super views.

Ms Alison M,

Idilic little Welsh retreat, warm, cosy and the perfect getaway from it all.
