No need to repeat what's been previously been said, suffice to say, we agree with all the good things said by previous reviewers. We still feel completely relaxed after being home for a few days.

Lovely, friendly owner. Private, without being too remote. I return regularly.

Our time in the hut was absolutely perfect and incredibly relaxing. Help is on hand from the owner in the main house but it's sufficiently far to feel nice and remote - can't recommend it enough.

One of my favourite places I have ever stayed. The Cwtch is small but absolutely perfectly formed, it has everything you could need and is very cleverly designed. The area is absolutely stunning and I was sad to leave, definitely book if you're considering :)

Everything we needed for a lovely break, great for our dog who enjoyed the fenced off outside space. Comfortable inside and the stove kept it all nice and warm. Lots of great local walks. We especially enjoyed the walk around Llandegfedd reservoir (hills and woods included) followed by lunch at the onsite restaurant.
