All very comfortable with birthday cake and card! Very nice welcoming hamper. Mrs C Price - 26th September 2018
This cottage, without any shadow of doubt, is the best we have ever stayed in. Spacious, well equipped, cosy, functional, peaceful - just perfect. If it was for sale we would buy it. The owners were fantastic and although on hand if needed, they didn’t bother us unnecessarily. Will definitely go back and probably spoilt now as it will be hard to match this idyllic property.Mrs JM Monk - 17th September 2018
Very clean and well equipped cottage. The location is very good for visiting a beautiful part of South-Wales. The owners, Rick and Claire were very helpful, kind and welcoming. They even picked us up after we were lost during a walk in the surroundings. Stupid Dutch!! .... We felt very welcome. Although the cottage was near the house of the owners, it was very private. The toffee waffles tasted almost like at home :) rick and Claire, thank you for your tasty presents, the small talks. We had a lovely week!Mrs Rita Schmidt-Bol - 1st July 2018
A truly lovely cottage in a peaceful and pictureque location. The 'Welcome' was a treat after a miserably wet journey - fresh bread, home-made jam, free range eggs. A perfect, relaxing short break with glorious sunshine and wonderful views. Highly recommended, particularly to those requiring single-storey accommodation. Spacious and comfortable.Miss Lesley Crowther - 17th May 2018
We had a lovely week. We had very nice interaction with the owners Clair and Rick. We hope to go back again in the future. Highly recommended. The property is well equipped had all that we required. Many thanks for the great time!Mr Steffen Strauss - 19th September 2017
We have remarked that this is the best holiday cottage we have had in the UK, and our hosts were exceptional.Mr John Flower - 29th August 2017
Very clean and tidy cottage and owners were very friendly and helpful Mrs S Nicholls - 21st August 2017
