“Nice Cottage In Exceptional Location”
Reviewed August 22, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Cottage was clean and well looked after. Quite spacious for family of 6 with everything you need to keep show on the road. Well researched and informative notes plus diaries of previous guests which give one a good idea of what to do and where to go. Lovely mountain scenery and a babbling brook running past the front. Difficult to think of a better base from which to start a variety of walks and quite near to beaches to recover from them! Not really that many people about even in what was the main tourist season.

Management Response
Aug 21, 2016
Unfortunately the first I heard from this guest was AFTER their booked departure date and hence they gave me no opportunity to resolve any of their problems or complaints.

Even so I offered to provide a refund in relation to relocation expenses. When they provided a receipt for a nearby cottage that had been booked months in advance I became very suspicious and declined to offer any refund retrospectively when I hadn't been notified at the time they choose to leave.

They even threatened a bad review if I didn't provide a refund and obviously this is now what they have written! So please read all our other 5 star reviews and make your own judgement.

“A generously supplied cottage in beautiful surroundings”
Reviewed April 22, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

This cottage is perfectly located in a peaceful valley - especially in springtime surrounded by lambs, birds and flowers. We enjoyed the bubbling river, local walks and mountain climbs and the connections with history through immediate farms, churches and castles. The cottage has comfortable sleeping accommodation - especially useful to have enough single beds for 4 large sons. It is well equipped and full of character, generous with central heating and log burner as well as welcoming goodies and lots of local information.

“Everything one could want in a holiday.”
Reviewed August 16, 2013 for a stay in July 2013

We stayed at Tyn-y-Fach during the last week of July and we were all very pleased with the cottage. It is very 'olde worlde' with stone floors and low beams but has been sympathetically modernised and is very comfortable and clean. There are many things to do in the surrounding area which is very picturesque. It is situated on a working farm and children and adults will both love seeing the sheep and horses so close by. We were allowed to feed some young sheep and became rather attached to a young foal which was in the barn next to the cottage. Booking was simple and Richard and Melanie went out of their way to ensure we had all the information we might need. Thank you.
