“Amazing location, accomodation, owners, everything!”

We arranged an activity weekend in Wales for a friend's birthday. We chose this cottage because it was reasonably priced and close to everything we were planning to do.

We were greeted by Steve on arrival, and he showed us around the main cottage, including the utility room and bathrooms (and not just a simple hand wave in their general direction). He checked with us that everything was ok, and asked us why we were here. When we explained that it was a surprise for a birthday, and that he didn't know we were going to be there, he helped us put balloons up with his stepladder, hang banners, and even let us know when the birthday boy was arriving so we could hide. There literally wasn't anything more he could have done for us (More on that later).

Our time there was fantastic. The beds were very comfortable, and everything was spotless. The occasional spider was around, but in the heart of the countryside that was to be expected, and they kept themselves to themselves. The selection of DVDs for some late night relaxing after a day's activities was very welcome. The kitchen was a decent size, with all manner of utensils for food preparation (peelers, can openers, various knives etc.), which is something we've sorely missed at other locations when making up meals for 6 of us. A separate wine fridge was a welcome bonus for the ladies. The local supermarket is only around 10-15 minutes away by car. I cannot fault the location or the cottage at all.

Now, to really show how wonderful the owners, Steve and Jo are. We'd booked Friday - Monday, and on Sunday I had a quad-biking accident and broke my hip. I was in hospital until late Wednesday, and we live 5 hours away from this cottage. The cottages were all booked on Monday night, so my wife couldn't stay on site, until they opened their house to her. Rather than letting her stay in a local hotel at £50/night, they instead offered her a spare room in their own house on Monday and Tuesday night, really making her welcome and part of the family, and then extended that offer to me when I came out of hospital so we didn't have to drive back that night. Maybe that's just how Welsh people do things, as I know we wouldn't have got the same back in Ramsgate, but it was such an incredibly nice thing to do I couldn't express my gratitude highly enough.

In short, the cottage, location and its owners surpassed every expectation I had, and I'd go back tomorrow if I could.

“Fantastic Stay!!”

I booked this for a group of 6 as a surprise birthday for my partner. The place was perfect, it is the perfect blend of traditional farmhouse and modern, with everything you could need! The views are amazing and so close to loads of walks etc.
Jo and Steve, the owners, went out of their way to help us out (including helping to put up birthday decorations), giving us options for bbq's/ firepit, where to get wood from etc. They were so friendly and unbelievably helpful it really made our stay great!
I can not recommend this place enough, we will definitely be coming back!!

Thank you for an fantastic stay!

My partner booked The Cow Shed for my 21st birthday and I can honestly say it was the best birthday I have had yet. Not only was the home immaculate, Steve and Jo the owners were very nice and helpful in every way. So glad to have made the amazing memories we did there and will definitely be visiting again soon. Strongly recommend this to people of all ages. Would like to thank Steve and Jo again for having us.

Cannot recommend this place enough, the owners went out of their way for us during our stay, the cottage is beautiful, comfortable and has everything you could need for a real home from home. The views are spectacular and there are loads of lovely places to visit nearby. Will definitely be back next year!
