Spent 2 nights at Rock Cottage and had meals both nights (extra) as there isn't a restaurant or pub in walking distance, so if you want a drink you have to take your own as Sue and Chris do not have a drinks licence (this is mentioned on their web). when we arrived at 4PM we were greeted with a cup of tea and some Welsh Tea Bread (Bara Brith) sitting looking out over their garden and also the following day when we arrived back after being out in the hills.
Sue is a competent and innovative chef and the 3 course evening meals are well worth the money she asks extra.
Why is this all different? The guests sit down at the dining table in the large kitchen with Sue and her husband Chris for breakfast and the evening meal, where lively discussions can ensue on any subject; this makes a pleasant change to being shut away in a dining room on your own.
Our bedroom was the Owl Roost with a large comfortable bed, radio and tea/coffee making facilities, although we only used the tea making once when going to bed as Sue made us a few cups of tea in the kitchen while preparing the evening meal. Our En-Suite had toilet, bidet, shower and basin plus a heated towel rail.
Although Rock Cottage is well off the beaten track up many windy single track lanes the Sat-Nav found it, traffic is minimal past the house so it is really peaceful, so if you are use to trains and traffic through the night the silence might keep you awake.
While there Sue introduced us to the Goat Farm where Angora Goats are kept and sheared for their ‘wool’ which is then turned into many differing garments, well worth a visit while you are there.
