My husband and I (and two dogs) had a really lovely week at Star Mill Cottage, equipped with everything you could possibly need , comfortable lounging and beds and an effective and atmospheric wood burner. Our welcome gifts of red wine and brownies (to die for ) were such a lovely touch and very welcome on our first night. We had never visited that part of Wales before and found some lovely walks and places of interest "The Golden Road " an ancient trading route is a must and only 6 miles up the road, has the most amazing views.
You can't go wrong staying here and we highly recommend it. Thank you so much Lucy and Bob we will be back xx
A comfortable and cosy well equipped cottage. All our needs were catered for. It is a perfect base for exploring this part of West Wales. Lovely beaches much appreciated by our greyhound George. The weather was cold with rain, sleet and snow but lots of dog-friendly pubs to visit and it did not spoil our stay. Lovers of history will appreciate huge number of castles. Would recommend Star Mill Cottage and we hope to return.
This will be our third trip to Star Mill Cottage with our young son and will definately return in the future.
Set in the quiet town of Star - this cottage provides excellent location for a quiet peaceful break, beautiful log burner to relax and read a book, full wifi facilities with plenty of books, dvds and games to choose from their extensive library plus Smart TV for all your NETFLIX needs, a wonderful welcome to the cottage with chocolates and a bottle of wine, a truly lovely gesture.
Cant recommend this cottage enough, the owners very friendly and accommodating.
Our stay was for 4 evenings, so we managed to visit Cardigan, Cilgerran Castle, Carmarthern and also the local town nearby for coffee and a cake, so plenty to do if you want to get out and about.
The cottage itself is ok.....we found it to be very dusty and a little unclean on arrival. Miles from any main roads so don't expect a quick journey to anywhere! Well equipped but has to clean quite a lot of plates and pans etc before we used any of them. We know it's a cottage in the country bit there were cobwebs and dead spiders everywhere which hasn't been there just a few days or weeks if you know what I mean. The owners are lovely and very helpful ...i just think they need to get on top of their cleaner. Couch in tv lounge area is awful.....so uncomfortable that it was hard work to relax of an evening. Last thing to mention is that all the duvets and most of the pillows are feather which set off my sons allergy (unless it was the dust)...so we had to come home 3 days early. If you are looking for a retreat in the middle of nowhere and not looking for a luxury cottage then this is fine.
What an amazing place. Cottage was absolutely stunning, clean, tidy.
Had everything there that you would need. Welcome Pack too.
Had a fantastic week in this lovely Cottage, Beautiful scenery, stream down the side of the Cottage was ideal for early morning breakfast.
Lovely places local to walk, through woodland area.
What more can i say.
look forward to going back next year.
Thanks Bob & Lucy
WHAT AN AMAZING COTTAGE. We have had just the best time here this past week and can honestly say we are truly sad to be leaving, our children especially. They have settled in so well and have slept beautifully every night which is unusual for them in unfamiliar surroundings. Every need was catered for, and much much more.
On arrival we were greeted by the wonderful smell of the log fire. The whole place was beautifully clean and the owners even left a bottle of wine and choccys for our arrival which was such a lovely personal touch. Bob the owner phoned us a couple of hours after we landed to make sure all was to our satisfaction, which it truly was!!
The beds are honestly the comfiest beds IN THE WORLD!! Never slept so well. There is plenty to see if you travel by car, highly recommend Poppit Sands and Cardigan Bay, lots of shops and places to eat. Manor Hall Farm was a great day out especially for children. We had a problem with our exhaust and the local garage (Garej Wyn) fitted us in that very day which was fantastic so must recommend them for anyone else in a similar position. My brother who stayed with us also had a more serious problem with his car and they fixed his at the drop of a hat also. Brilliant guys down there!
Star is a picturesque place to stay and the locals seem dead friendly. There's very little traffic going by and the sound of the stream flowing by is so soothing (I think the noise helped my children sleep to be honest.)
There are lots of birds feeding in the garden which is also very relaxing to watch, the kids enjoyed topping up the bird feeders in "The Jungle" as they called the garden.
I could go on and on about this cottage but I won't bore everybody, in a nutshell we highly recommend this beautiful building to anyone looking for a long/short family/couples holiday/break away. Its gorgeous. In and out! We wouldn't hesitate to stay again or recommend to friends and family. We will take some lovely memories home with us.
A very well equipped cottage in a quiet location. Comfortable and warm on chilly days. A real home from home. Love the stream outside the back door. The surrounding countryside is beautiful with some lovely walks nearby including woods, hills, beaches and the Pembrokeshire Coastal Path. It is within easy reach of some pretty villages and small towns and most things can be bought in Cardigan. Highly recommended.
