Lovely cottage with loads of old style character in a beautiful rural location in Wales. Warm welcome from owners Mike and Jess who checked regularly that all was well. Nice place to stay to get away from it all and relax. Plenty of good local pub/restaurants in nearby town.

We couldn't have wanted for a more relaxing break in the most breathtaking scenery. The cottage was perfect, cosy and warm, Jessica and Mike made us very welcome and we will return in the near future! There is lots to see and do in the surrounding area, be prepared for long walks, that's what we went for with our dog and he loved it too!
