Fantastic views!

Mrs Sandra N,

Stayed at an exceptional property in Wales with incredible countryside and mountain views across the valley. Five stars in every sense! Stunning. Utterly brilliant stay. The accommodation exceeded all expectations and the owners were so lovely! We chatted most days. The nicest people you could meet. A perfect stay! Thank you. Very easy to book. The administration process was very slick: paperwork, booking and information received. Highly recommend Best of Wales.

Previous Customer,

Stunning location, views and an ideal property to unwind and relax in, and owners are extremely friendly and helpful. Friendly and helpful service (from Best of Wales).

Previous Customer,

We loved this property, it was everything we expected. The owners who lived next door were very nice and helpful. We loved the location which made it possible to visit several places in Wales and the views were breathtaking! The cottage was clean and comfortable and had everything needed for a perfect holiday. We liked that it had two bedrooms and two baths and that one bedroom was on the main floor. We sat outside with a drink one evening even though it was chilly because it was so beautiful.
