Lovely stay. Great hosts during 'Beast from the East' and 'Storm Emma'. Fantastic place for kids. - 3rd March 2018
We have had a wonderful stay in Pentre Bach! The children have loved the cottages and the grounds. Having the child friendly space right outside our back door has been wonderful! It has also been a lovely and very easy place to bring the dog. Thank you to Ifana and Adrian for being so friendly and accommodating. The toys in the cottages is a really lovely touch and it has been a wonderful to spend time in the home of Pentre Bach and Sali Mali herself. Come visit us at The Dream Shop when you are next in South Wales. Rhiannon, Menna & Gwenllian - 23rd February 2018
We have absolutely loved our stay here! Everyone has been very welcoming and have gone above and beyond to make us feel settled for our short stay (4 nights). Location is lovely and our 3 year old has loved playing in all the lovely settings in the garden by the river. So great location for day trips. We visited Devils Bridge, Aberystwyth and Aberaeron, all highly recommended. Thank you for a lovely stay! We look forward to visiting again. Felicity, James, Verity, Matthew & Jacob - 12th January 2018
As two families with young children we thoroughly enjoyed the facilities and play areas around the property, we had to drag the children away to enjoy a meal in Aberaeron! The cottages were ideal for families with young children, clean, warm and with excellent attention from the owners.
Recommends: Visit the kite feeding 5 minutes away.Families from Cardiff - 7th December 2016
Fantastic - very warm welcome. The owner couldn't do enough to help us while we were there - showing us around the other properties and facilities (which our children loved). It really is a magical place with surprising and interesting things at every turn - dressing up clothes, sandpits, an under the sea tunnel. Cottage was spotless, warm and very cosy.
Recommendations: Enjoy spending time exploring Pentre Bach as there is so much there for children to enjoy. Visit Aberaeron to eat in the Harboumaster.Rhian from Miskin, Pontyclun - 6th December 2016
