Stayed at this lovely barn conversion over Christmas. The owners were very friendly as they lived on the farm next door. We were greeted with chocolates, mince pies and a bottle of wine. There was also a Christmas tree with lights which was a lovely surprise. The home was very homely and spacious, the kids loved it. We had a fabulous time and would not hesitate to recommend it The views were spectacular. Thanks again for a lovely stay.

mr S,

We felt at home at once, the welcome from the hosts, Christmas tree & lights, the view, the bed and mattress, plenty of room. Did I mention the cake ?

Mrs W,

Ideally situated to explore this part of Wales. Hosts very welcoming but totally unobtrusive. Property is particularly spacious and good for quiet relaxation.

Fantastic cottage with excellent views and very friendly owners. All that we needed for our time away. Thank you.
