The cottage was fine, and beautifully warm and cosy, which we needed when we stayed. The best thing, though, was the superb location, and the lovely warm welcome we had from Mrs. Wigley on arrival.Mrs Katherine Wallace - 1st January 2018
Myself, my partner (Thomas) and our dog (Sam the Hairy Lurcher) stayed at this wonderful cottage for three nights in late October (we were very lucky with the weather - it was sunny and glorious!) whilst Thomas was doing an ecology course at Centre for Alternative Technology (CAT). The cottage has everything you need for a comfortable stay (even an electric blanket which was an amazing treat after a long day hiking up Cadair Idris!). The area is beautiful and has lots of good walking in the local area. There are some lovely eateries and shops in nearby Machynlleth. Nora is an excellent host. Great check-in instructions. We hope to stay again soon. Thank you!Emma - 30th October 2017
Lovely welcome in a very friendly village. We settled right in with the delicious Welsh cakes Nora left us. Cosy and warm - far warmer than we're used to in fact. Everything we needed was there and we had a good relaxed stay despite the temperamental rainy weather. Our son enjoyed imitating the cockerel over the street. A great place to stay and we'd come back again. Thanks!Elizabeth - 26th September 2017
A very quaint property.. couldn't have been a nicer getaway.. we enjoyed every minute and did not want to leave :) the owner was a lovely lady who was very helpful and polite :)Miss Samantha Dunkley - 22nd July 2017
We had a fantastic time. The place is set in lovely countryside and is perfect for just relaxing or exploring the beautiful area. We were there with our 8 month old son, so we just took it easy, cooked meals in the house at night and drove around to the nearby coast and quaint villages for a stroll during the day. Nora and her family are lovely people and very attentive. Everything worked perfectly and I highly recommend staying there if you are interested in the area!Eva - 18th April 2017
A cosy, warm cottage in a spectacular tiny village. The photos don't do it justice. The location is very convenient for the walks and sights of southern SnowdoniaStuart - 11th January 2017

Wales is beautiful. Full of wild places, spectacular scenery and not many people.Mrs Tyler - 29th June 2015
The cottage is very cosy and comfortable, the owner made us welcome.I found Wales Cottage Holidays' service to be very good.Mrs Fanthom - 11th May 2015
Bit old fashioned but warm and comfortable. The bed is v comfy and TV is new. Not much of a view except from bedroom. Owner helpful and friendly but not intrusive. Shower a bit small if you are large! But modern and worked well. Plenty of hot water and heating v good. Would go again.Mrs Miller - 13th April 2015
Very friendly owner, even brought us a jar of home made jam which was still warm! Ideal location for us and although cottage was small, it made for a very cosy stay. Would go back.Miss Gray - 26th September 2014
We had a lovely quiet relaxing holiday. It was even better with no internet access or phone signal for the week. Total isolation, LOVELY. It was also nice right next to open fields.Mr Evans - 5th June 2014
