“Celyn Cottage what a lovely find”
Reviewed July 6, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

This was taking all aspects into consideration one of best cottages we have stayed in. Our hosts were so helpful and friendly without being obstructive. The cottage was spacious, comfortable and very clean and had many lovely thoughtful touches included. It was so peaceful and yet only a short easy drive to Aberystwyth, the short walk up the meadow gave you lovely views of the surrounding countryside and sea, and we were lucky to see a couple of sunsets, Red Kites, a fox and rabbits.

“charming cottage perfect little getaway”
Reviewed April 14, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

Absolutely loved our three night stay at Celyn Cottage. It is the perfect little escape for a couple who are looking for a place they can feel totally relaxed. The cottage really is charming inside and out. The location is wonderful as you are close enough to reach shops in a 5 min drive yet you feel so rural as it is surrounded by the glorious Welsh countryside. I would 100% stay here again.

Would also like to thank Marilyn for being a fantastic host, her kind nature and helpful manner made our little break all the more enjoyable.

Everything about the place is 10 out of 10 for me.

Thank you so much for your lovely comments. I am delighted you enjoyed your visit and found the cottage relaxing. It certainly gives me immense pleasure to meed lovely young people like you and to share the delights the cottage offers. I will continue to improve the landscaping and planting in the gardens to give the patio a real WAW factor! I hope you'll return sometime to see the changes. All the best.

“Amazing holiday let”
Reviewed October 18, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

We stayed in this lovely cottage for two nights whilst delivering our eldest daughter to university, I regularly stay in hotels and guest houses for business so can be quite critical of where I stay. I can honestly say this is by far the best accommodation and hospitality I have ever received, the cottage was very clean and well equipped. Honestly the photographs do not do this property justice, for the three of us there was more than enough room, the bedroom large and very comfortable, the third bed was the 'L shaped' sofa which my daughter also found very comfortable. The large bathroom with walk in shower excellent also. What made the stay was the finishing touches the vendor added to make our stay very pleasant. There was a nice patio area with seating which we did not use, outside the property is very much 'work in progress' but nothing to be concerned with.
The only negative (not my own opinion but my teenage daughters) was no WiFi and mobile network not great, this did not put us off wanting to stay at this property again.
I cannot express how welcome we felt and how much we felt 'at home' during our stay, I would not hesitate to recommend this property and have already made another enquiry about our next stay.

THANK YOU so much for being so generous with your review. It delights me to know that visitors do enjoy staying at the cottage. Though work has been ongoing (while avoiding disturbing the tranquility for visitors) there will have been a fantastic change by next Spring - my husband will have finished the excavation of the earth mound and the grounds and the landscape will be fully planted up. The view from the cottage will be far more distant and panoramic yet the immediate gardens will be a riot of colour and a wildlife haven. Also hopefully BT will have undertaken the upgrade and will provide a better internet and WiFi service. It is a bit frustrating for youngsters not having WiFi and I am exploring options to try and resolve the problem. I aim to ensure my visitors enjoy every aspect of their stay and will always strive to improve.

“Best of both worlds!”
Reviewed August 29, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

If you're looking for somewhere to stay in the Aberystwyth area that provides a quiet peaceful retreat in the evening after a day full of fun, then I would seriously recommend you book this fantastic cottage. Myself and my other half stayed for 3 nights, and were more than happy, even wishing we could've had another night or two! The cottage itself was faultless, it included everything you needed for a self catering holiday, as well as being spick and span with modern furnishings but with plenty of character too. The location was excellent, as Aberystwyth is only 10 minutes drive away (Taxi's a reasonable £5) and has everything you need for a fun filled day/night, but when you return to the cottage it's peaceful and offers plenty to do such as scenic walks and blackberry picking.
In Marilyn and her husband, you couldn't ask for better hosts, they really went to extra lengths to make us feel welcome, offering transport to Aberystwyth (as neither of us drive) and providing DVD's in case we decided to stay in.
All in all, Doleos was as close to perfect as can be!

Thank you so much for taking the time to write such a lovely review. It was a delight to have such a charming young couple staying at our cottage especially as they took such good care of it, leaving it very clean and tidy for me. After such a hectic summer period every little help is immensely appreciated. It was lovely to see the young couple wandering through the meadow and picking blackberries along the hedgerow. I do hope they will return sometime soon for another visit.

“Lovely holiday cottage - just the right size for 2”
Reviewed August 7, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Really enjoyed our stay in this charming renovated farm building. Spotlessly clean and our hosts were extremely helpful and informative. Really lovely shower room and extremely comfortable bed with spotless linen. A really nice touch was the provision of tea, coffee and sugar more than sufficient for the whole period of our stay. Also provided were milk, butter and jam! Wish we had found this holiday home at the beginning of our daughter's year at University and not the end! We will be back.
