“Lovely, pet friendly cottage”
Reviewed May 29, 2017 for a stay in May 2017

The cottage is perfect for 3 or 4 people, pet friendly and all on the ground floor.
The location is perfect and nearby all the beautifull lakes like Elan valley, Lake Brianne, Lake Clywedog,.. and still close to the black mountains aswell.

Thank you very much for taking the time to review the Faulkner cottage. I am very pleased you enjoyed your stay. It's a beautiful area of Wales and remains quite undiscovered by many. Perhaps we may see you again at some point in the future.

“Lovely lodge, it has everything you need and more. Dogs made welcome”
Reviewed April 23, 2017 for a stay in April 2017

Nothing to find fault with. Dogs made welcome, and all amenities in cottage are very good. Endless supply of hot water for showers and very good fully fitted kitchen. Beds comfortable and bedrooms well appointed. Owner on hand to give helpful information and tips. Warm, cosy, quiet, peaceful and well equipped, what more could you want.

“Five "5 star" cottages!”
Reviewed May 3, 2016 for a stay in April 2016

There are times, not many, when you find accommodation which is so good you would like to keep it a secret. But that would be unfair to Elaine and her Vulcan Cottages so let's share it.

As an extended family spread over 3 generations and comprising 14 adults and 4 children we needed all five cottages and they all exceeded our expectations. Each one individually unique to cater for differing requirements in terms of numbers and/or access and in the Middleton there was room for us all to congregate in the evenings to eat and chat. All immaculately decorated and furnished and with a welcoming pack including a bottle of wine!

The area around is beautiful and there's plenty to do and see whatever the age group. The weather over the May Day weekend wasn't brilliant but for the older family members the sightseeing and scenic drives around the Elan Valley and into Aberystwyth over the mountain road made up for that. And the second generation with their children found the local activity centre a bonus - for both them and the children.

All in all a great weekend and one that we hope to repeat at Vulcan Cottages again.

Thank you very much for taking the time to provide us with such positive feedback about your stay with us. It is much appreciated. I'm sorry you found the tourer vans a bit close: I presume you are referring to the French windows in the lounge not the bedroom windows which of course are too high to be overlooked. You are right in saying the Vulcan Lodge is not remote. I've now adjusted the information on our website to make this clear.

Like you many guests love the river walk. We are so lucky to have it on the doorstep. Also, the Wye Valley Walk itself is only just across the river and can be reached by a 10 minute walk through Llanwrthwl village.

Thank you again for giving us your feedback.
