Worked really well for us as a family, the games room and tennis courts were well used during our stay and the downstairs space in the house was really useful as we had 2 children and a baby alongside 6 adults.

Mrs Jacqueline A,

A perfect holiday retreat....such beautiful scenery and so peaceful. The owners were so friendly and helpful. The kitchen was very well equipped, it was like home from home. The children loved the tennis court and the games room was a bit hit with both adults and children. It was one of the nicest cottages we have stayed in.

Mrs Tamara W,

Highly recommend Derw Cottages, great location for walking, bird watching and only 50 minute drive to the beach. Covers all different interests for a great family holiday. The cottage itself is very clean and has everything you will need to make your getaway easy.

Miss Rhian D,

Excellent property and Helen is absolutely amazing. If there was more than 5 stars, I would have given that. It’s a lovely cottage in a lovely idyllic location. Very comfortable and furnished to a high spec. Helen was very helpful and gave us all the details of the area. There was tea coffee , milk and a delicious Welsh cake when we came. Will definitely book it again.

Mrs Vanya S,

Beautiful house and scenery. Safe for dog to wander around, fences and cattle grids meant he couldn’t wander off. Host was lovely and very helpful. Would love to stay there again.
