Amanda very welcoming! Great Welsh cakes...
Lovely enclosed south facing back garden, great walks around the lake feeding the ducks and fishing!
Great to have a few nights away and relax!
What a lovely little cottage owned by a lovely down to earth warm hearted lady! Amanda is smashing and just lives across the road with offers of help if needed without being intrusive. We landed Christmas Eve and her lovely welsh cakes and mince pies of course were waiting for us. Milk in the fridge too was a lovely bonus for a much needed cuppa. Cumcarn Forest visitor centre with it's mountain bike trails and choice of walks are literally 5 minutes walk down the little lane. These were a super bonus.
The kitchen and bathroom are small but as others have mentioned.. well equipped and adequate. I managed to make Christmas dinner for four of us. The bedrooms are cozy and the beds are comfortable too.
Theres a lovely stream running down through the forest which you can hear at the bottom of the garden.. would love to see it all in the summer if I ever get the chance.
Thank you to Amanda for the lovely Christmas decorations which helped to make this cozy little cottage home from home. Our daughter was performing in Panto in Newport so couldn't make it home for Christmas but we were able to celebrate it with her here. We had a wonderful Christmas break, it's just a shame we couldn't stay longer!
Thank you Amanda and a very happy new year to you! sorry it was all a rush.
Absolutely lovely cottage, well equipped, very warm, well decorated and soooo cosy!! The whole family (including the kids) loved it. The beds were incredibly comfortable with clean and fresh bedlinen. The bathroom is downstairs but we didn't find it a problem at all. We didn't spend much time in the garden but you could hear the beautiful sound of the river, and it must be great in the warmer months to eat outside. Very idyllic. The owner Amanda is the best and we had some delicious home made Welsh cakes to welcome us on arrival (which I have since tried to reproduce!).
The cottage is very well situated with supermarkets nearby. The forest at our doorstep was a real treat, there is a choice of different walks to follow, from a 20 minutes walk to a 6 and a half hour walk (or maybe longer).
We had a wonderful holiday, it's just a shame we didn't stay longer.
If I had to pick one word to sum up the delightful cottage and the delightful Amanda it would be LOVE!
I'm so glad I found this little gem!
Thank you Amanda!
Stayed here with a few friends for a mountain biking weekend. Amanda greeted us on arrival and showed us around the property, delicious Welsh cakes included!
The property is in very good order and perfect for exploring the local area. It is literally a 2 minute ride to the start of the trails at Cwmcarn.
Would definitely recommend and when we are next in Cwmcarn we will be seeing if this place is available.
