Reviewed August 4, 2013

Stayed here at the end of the July with our 8 month old and grandparents. We stayed in the two bedroom Jasmine cottage. We did not want to leave and are currently planning when we can go back. Jacqui and Dewi have planned the whole experience perfectly. Having spoken to others staying at the cottages, I dont think you can find a place better than this. Right from the start everything is organised in your cottage and you dont need to worry about cots, highchairs, monitors, steriliser etc... The cottages are tastefully decorated to a good specification and everything is clean. The swimming pool is lovely and the hot tubs and saunas a nice touch for the adults. There are many things to talk about, like the superking beds with crisp linen and the soft play area, the fantastic view, the peace and quiet but the highlight has to be farmer Malcolm. He really made the experience for the children and even managed to get our 8 month old excited about feeding chickens! Just wonderful. Thank you.

We spent one week at Fron Fawr - 2 adults and one toddler (aged 17 months) - what a fantastic place. Lovely and comfortable accommodation, with relaxing scenery for grown-ups to enjoy. Our little one loved feeding the animals and playing in the soft play room at Clydey. A real gem!

We stayed for a week with our 14 month old and we did not want to leave. Very enjoyable stay, cottage very nice. We had not asked for anything extra and still when we got to the cottage there was a cot, highchair, stair gates and baby bath waiting for us.
We used the babysitting service for two hours one afternoon and it was nice to be able to have a couple of baby free hours and have a relax in the hot tub. The indoor swimmingpool and hot tub is amazing! There is nothing they have not thought of at Clydey. We borrowed some DVDs a few evenings and our daughter absolutely loved the soft play room and the variety of toys on offer. We also borrowed one of the baby carriers one day (it was a nice surprise to find carriers for loan in the larder, especially the ones for bigger babies) and took a walk to the waterfall. Another good thing from the larder was the yummy ready meals (even baby ones), especially the sticky toffee pudding (best we ever tasted!).
Last but definitely not least, the animal feeding rounds. This was the highlight of our day every morning and farmer Malcolm is so amazing with the children. The animal feeding and farmer Malcolm is without a doubt the best thing about Clydey. Our daughters confidence with feeding the animals grew so much over the week. We will absolutely return here in the future and would recommend to anyone, especially with kids, to go. I don't think you will find a more baby/child friendly place anywhere else.

We have just returned from a wonderful weeks holiday at Tansy cottage. The cottage was lovely & spacious with 2 bathrooms, a powerful shower & a gorgeous slipper bath. The stove was so cosy & easy to light in the chilly evenings. At Clydey cottages you can really relax as it so quiet, with stunning views across the countryside. The outdoor hot tub was a real treat taking in those views. The facilities are first class. The indoor pool again had beautiful views & was lovely & warm for the children. The soft play area was also very clean & well equipped. My 3 year old daughter loved feeding the animals & collecting the eggs every morning with Farmer Malcom. She would look out the cottage window every morning, waiting for him to arrive. Then she would charge out of the door & across the grass calling 'Farmer Malcom!' at the top of her voice! He was so brilliant with all the children. The highlight of the week had to be the baby lamb being born. We were very sad to leave, and will definitely be returning.

If this place was half as good as it is, you would still give it 5 stars. Truly one of the best places place to stay with a young family. Wonderful, clean facilities, we (free coffee, tea magazines for grownups) loved the soft play area and the swimming pool, play area, swings and slides and the toy tractors and the girls enjoyed feeding the animals with Farmer Malcolm each morning. Introducing the feeding of pigs, rabbits, goats, sheep and chickens to young children is fantastic experience. Yes you can see them all at other farms, but here your children actually feed the animals from their hand and the lifting of the chickens to find fresh warm eggs, wow. Again, all the areas are so clean.
So much to do here and in the area, that we never even touched the woodland walks. These will have to wait until next time.
You can even indulge in a late night hot tub with an ice cream overlooking the beautiful valley too after the kids are asleep.

One for the whole family.

Room Tip: 4 adults and 2, 20 month girls had a great time in Tansy. Wake up to the view of the animals.

A great place to stay with a young family. Great facilities, we loved the swimming pool and soft play area and the girls thoroughly enjoyed themselves feeding the animals with Farmer Malcolm each morning. A really lovely location and the place was immaculate.
What was a particularly nice touch was the number of things provided in the cottages which are often overlooked in other self- catering accommodation. For example, foil, cling-film,toilet roll, soap - all the things that are a nuisance to remember to take with you!
So good we have booked to go again next year when we will be able to take advantage of the new spa treatment room.
Don't hesitate this place is honestly lovely and for young children don't worry about bringing any toys with you it will be totally unnecessary.
