“A delightful holiday cottage!”
Reviewed February 24, 2014 for a stay in February 2014

What a find! A lovely and well equipped clean cottage, a short drive away to the lovely coastal town of Aberystwyth. We had such a warm welcome and were delighted with our welcome pack of goodies which the owner had carefully chosen, bearing in mind we had 3 little ones with us. We will definitely return...

“Best Ever”
Reviewed September 28, 2013 for a stay in September 2013

Excellent new property, clean, spacious and well equipped. The owner was incredibly helpful and provided extras such as bread, milk, coffee, tea, fruit, vegetables, orange juice and breakfast cereals all waiting when we arrived.

Directions to property were clear and correct. The surroundings were beautiful and quiet and we had a most restful and enjoyable stay. We would definitely stay there again and would recommend it.

A car is needed as it just outside of Aberystwyth but only a five minute drive into town.

THANK YOU so much for making my day! Feeling exhausted after an extremely busy summer of letting I was delighted to read such lovely, considerate and generous comments. I never thought when I started letting the immense pleasure I would get from meeting such nice people. Sharing this glorious place with them was so satisfying.

“Fabulous cottage. Pictures do not do it justice.”
Reviewed September 13, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

A very lovely cottage just five minutes drive from the centre of Aberystwyth, yet in an extremely peaceful and private location. The cottage is extremely well equipped, and is decorated very nicely; the photographs do not do it justice. The only thing missing was a full length mirror (which is just me being fussy).
Nearby attractions include the National Park which has three excellent mountain bike trails and offers some lovely walks, and the rare red kites are fed at 3pm daily, which is an interesting sight. The centre of Aberystwyth is only 5 minutes away, with its lovely beach, also the Rheidol valley, steam train, butterfly house.. The list goes on.

Car needed as a 5 minute journey to the coast, shops nearby.
Quiet and relaxing, the dog loved walking in the meadow. Lovely wildlife & the stream was very relaxing. Sunny aspect because garden furniture can be move

“One othe best holiday rentals we have stayed in.”
Reviewed July 10, 2013 for a stay in July 2013

Usually when we book a cottage I am a bit apprehensive, however from the very friendly emails from the owners I knew this would be ok. How right I was.The cottage was spacious and well stocked. Very clean and the beds were so comfortable. The host and hostess were on site which I always find helpful, just in case there are any snags (which there weren't). We had a very relaxing holiday and there were plenty of places to go to within a short drive. Would we recommend the cottage? You bet.

“Very clean, comfortable and welcoming”
Reviewed July 4, 2013 for a stay in June 2013

Apart from my usual 2 niggles in just about everywhere we stay in, no hooks on the backs of the bathroom or bedroom door for hanging your dressing gown on, and the bathroom could do with another shelf for putting your toilet bags on, it was extremely comfortable, had everything else you could wish for in a self-catering establishment, nice furnishing, very clean and tidy, a very nice and helpful and welcoming hostess and a lovely quiet position but still only a mile or so from Aberystwyth. The only other thing that would be a bonus is wi-if. But we would definitely go back.

THANK YOU so much for your lovely comments and I promise that when you visit again there will be hooks behind the doors and another shelf in the bathroom. I truly appreciate your feedback as I do want to do everything I can to make visitors happy and I realise that it's the little things that make the difference. This is my first year so hopefully I will get things just right in time.
