This is a beautiful cottage! It was well equipped and cosy. Little touches like tea/coffee/cake were much appreciated. We are hoping to rebook to come again next year. Mr Robert Jones - 5th November 2018
Fantastic cottage, the best we have stayed in.Mr I Chapman - 24th September 2018
We have enjoyed a wonderful relaxing week in your beautiful home-from-home. We feel privileged to have been some of your first guests and that we got to see your home in such pristine condition. The cosy lounge with its log burner and a glass of Bubbles-in-bubbles was most welcome after long days out. We absolutely loved the remoteness and serenity of Brynderwen, with our only neighbours being the sheep! Thank you for the warm welcome, fresh flowers and cake. This has been our best UK holiday experiences and we look forward to returning again soon.Mr Duncan Wright - 1st September 2018
We had a wonderful stay in a lovely cottage. We loved going to Bounce Below - it was great fun. Local walks around Lake Vyrnwy and the Rhiwargor Waterfall walk. Great cycle routes in Dyfnant Forest. We stumbled across a lovely quiet estate called Gregynog. The Aqueduct's near Pontcysyllte was interesting to see. Relaxing in the hot tub and playing table tennis has been fantastic. Great holiday with lovely memories. Thanks for everything.Mrs Nicola MacBean - 18th August 2018
