Reviewed September 22, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

We can honestly say this is the best cottage we've ever stayed in. What a warm friendly welcome from Mary-Ann especially with the fine touches of homemade bread, and wine,juice and that all important fresh milk for good old cuppa on arrival.The place is clean and with lovely homely touches.The setting is secluded and beautiful and perfect for exploring the area!I would highly recommend this place and hope to go back myself.

“Simply the best”
Reviewed September 14, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Pen Y Garn- Cottage belongs to the premier league: we spent 14 days in this cosy and pretty furnished house, with a very well equipped kitchen, a wonderful garden and, most of all, a VERY friendly and loveable hostfamily. Mary-Anne and Mike gave us a very warm welcome with welsh cake, homemade bread, wine and milk. You feel like coming home or visiting good old friends.
A very recommanded cottage and hostfamily. +AAA+

“Cosy and yet spacious, very wellcoming.”
Reviewed March 11, 2014 for a stay in March 2013

We stayed here just at the beggining of the season. We were welcomed by the family and were shown the cottage. The cottage is spacious yet was warm and cosy. The small sheltered patio overlooking the main garden is a lovely idea.
The bedrooms are tastefully furnished, and beds are very comfortable.There is central heating throughout. The living area had pleanty of places to sit with a choice of sofas or dining chairs. The wood burning stove is a great feature on a nippy spring day. The cottage is well equipped with nice crockery and cutlery. The kitchen has everything you need. It is quiet but not far from the towns or the coast.

“Utterly delightful”
Reviewed March 10, 2014 for a stay in June 2013

A few days stay at this delightful little cottage, tucked away in an idyllic setting was just what we needed to set us up for the winter ahead.
Everything, from the super-comfortable bed to the fantastic wood burner is designed to ensure guests have a wonderful stay.
Walking through the surrounding countryside and spotting wild orchids, kestrels and other wildlife was such a treat - especially when we knew we were coming back to tea and delicious home-made bread and jam from the welcome pack!
Well done to the owners for making such a special place - we'll be back!
