“Delightful cottage, welcoming owners”
Reviewed 24 June 2013 for a stay in May 2013

Warmly welcomed at the cottage by the owner who showed us round and left us provisions. The cottage is delightful, tastefully decorated and spacious, clean and new. Quiet location but within easy reach of Aberystwyth and several points of interest. Sitting out areas with table and benches.
Would return and recommend to friends and family.

“Excellent”
Reviewed 31 May 2013 for a stay in May 2013

Returned from 5 fantastic days in the area. The cottage is in an excellent position for exploring the area and is located in a lovely tranquil area only 5 minutes from the centre of town.

Accommodation is fantastic and has everything you could want.

Owners were fantastic and any questions were more than happy to assist.

Will definitely be returning again.

“Clean, comfortable, quiet and welcoming”
Reviewed 16 April 2013 for a stay in September 2012

We were privileged to be the first guests of this self catering cottage. We needed to be in or near Aberystwyth for a couple of days but were unfamiliar with the area. I thought staying in town might be too noisy at the beginning of Fresher's Week! We were lucky to find this place. It's only a few minutes drive to town in a quiet rural location. The owners couldn't have been more helpful or welcoming. Will definitely stay again when in the area.

My tip would be to say that the location is probably a bit challenging to find in the dark, so either arrive in daylight or be very sure of your directions!

Thank you so much for your kind words which are immensely appreciated especially after the recent upsetting review. It was a real pleasure to meet you, your husband and your daughter and to welcome you to Wales from Germany. I am delighted you liked the cottage and enjoyed your stay so much. It was obvious that you were her to enjoy all the delights and amenities and to take back happy memories. Thank you for being perfect guests and for taking excellent care of the cottage. I certainly hope you will return for another visit.
Sorry, I did try to translate my reply to German on the internet but I got some really weird versions and couldn't be sure it was correct!
