In short, this was a perfect stay away from home. Such friendly, welcoming hosts with a quaint and clean cottage situated in the most stunning of grounds. We really couldn't have asked for more!
The cottage had all the amenities you could ask for and was clean and well presented. The beds were incredibly comfy with immaculate bedding. Mary-Ann has worked hard to provide lots of information on the local area and attractions and the cottage features lots of her photography for inspiration. We were warmly welcomed with a loaf of fresh bread, home made jam and Welsh cakes (which my twins loved so much I've had to learn to make them myself!). We were truly blessed by the weather during our short stay here, so took every opportunity to enjoy the stunning garden - we enjoyed family games at the large table, breakfast at the smaller garden table amongst the flurry of butterflies or just relaxed in the sun on the picnic blanket by the pond... it was our own little bit of paradise! Thank you so much for welcoming us in to your home, we hope to visit again soon and would highly recommend to anyone!
We stayed for 2 weeks in Mary-Ann and Mike´s holiday house "Peny Y Garn". We are a couple with 2 girls (14 and 18 years). Mary-Ann and Mike welcomed us very hearty with homemade welsh cakes and red currant marmelade in the cosy and quiet cottage. In the house we had all things we needed, also w-lan, TV and a fireplace. Mary-Ann gave us helpful tips for our daytrips, for restaurants, shopping and sightseeing.
The terrace and garden reminded us of the nearby National Botanic Garden of Wales. Especially the girls enjoyed the presence of animals in the garden, like rabbits, squirrels and singing birds.
All together it was a pleasent stay and a wondeful family-trip for us.

We had a lovely 4 night stay at this beautiful cottage. Mary-Ann and Mike were very welcoming and friendly, giving us lots of ideas for things to do. There was home made bread, welsh cakes, jam as well as some milk which was really kind. Lots of thoughtful touches all around the cottage, including fresh flowers from the garden. Cottage itself is clean, fresh and well stocked, including various essentials such as tea, sugar and ketchup. Towels also provided which was nice for a self catered place. The garden is large, beautiful and very well kept- it was a pleasure to be able to stroll through.
Plenty of information provided in the cottage too, including things to do and birds to look out for in the garden. We visited the National Botanical gardens as recommended by Mary-Ann and loved it.
Thank you again for a wonderful stay!
This beautiful cottage stood out from all the rest. The garden is just breath taking. With the wildlife at your feet. The cottage very clean with everything you could wish for and more. The owners are a pleasure from booking to being so welcoming when we arrived. I will for one defo be looking at staying again and would highly recommend. This is certainly my little piece of heaven. Thank you Mary-ann and Mike.
On arriving at Pen Y Garn we were given a lovely welcome by Mary - Ann and shown around the lovely cottage Home made cakes,jam and bread were also given. Just lovely! The cottage is in a lovely position and the gardens blend in beautifully with the surroundings .Birdlife is in abundance and the feeder just outside the window was in an excellent position for watching their antics. Lots of places to visit in the area. The Botanical Gardens are just 5 mins away by car and well worth a visit . The cottage is very comfortable and we could fault nothing Well done to Mike and Mary - Ann for thinking of everything .Top Marks .
We had a great long weekend at Pen Y Garn, the cottage is very comfortable and well furnished, home made bread and welsh cakes as well as fresh flowers greeted us and made it feel very special.
On arrival we were greeted by Mary Ann who had made us fresh bread and welshcakes, both of which were delicious!! The cottage its self is beautiful, more than enough room for four adults.. It is well equipped with everything you could need! The beds are very comfortable and the bedrooms modern. Towels were large and fluffy. Both the cottage and the grounds were well kept and the views from the cottage were stunning! Birds dancing/rabbits playing!!
Local shop 5 minutes away, although the town centre is only a 10 minute drive.
Some of the photos don't do justice to how beautiful it actually is - both inside and out.. We all had a wonderful time and I simply cannot say enough good things!!
