“Sweetest little cottage...”
Reviewed December 1, 2016 for a stay in October 2016

How lovely it was to arrive at this gorgeous little cottage, with it's warm welcoming feel, after a long journey. Paula the owner was very helpful in responding quickly to my request and I knew I would have no concerns. I entered into the cosy living room and was excited to explore the rest of the cottage; it was all simply 'delightful'! The view from the front, overlooking the Black Mountains was breathtaking, while the garden at the back, very pretty. The kitchen and bathroom were immaculate and the bedroom (double and single beds, beautifully made up), was so cozy, that one could sleep like a log! Strong Wifi was also included and tons of TV channels. Brilliant... Perfect... Highly recommended.

“Elegant cottage with beautiful views”
Reviewed June 12, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

This cottage was small but really generous, and had such a lot of warmth and charm. We crammed ourselves in (there were two adults, two small children and two dogs!) and enjoyed a week here while exploring the area each day on little trips out. The view was amazing and we had such a lot of fun.

We would definitely recommend the cottage to anyone and everyone.

“Fantastic”
Reviewed January 7, 2016 for a stay in December 2015

Very cosy and plenty of original charm and character, dog friendly which was a big plus, party size: 2 adults 1 child & Labrador to which the Apple Cottage with truly perfect, our host was amazing, so welcoming and friendly yet not in our faces, allowing us to enjoy our stay making the most of the peace and quiet, just what we all needed after a long hard year, the views to the front of Apple Cottage were outstanding, Wales has some of the most breath taking scenery ever, so if you love the out doors and don't mind a bit of rain, grab your wellington boots and visit Wales.

“EXCELLENT COTTAGE IN QUIET LOCATION”
Reviewed June 30, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Apple Cottage is a small cottage close to Ammanford. It is full of character and ideal for a couple, Paula is a kind and very helpful host, who's local knowledge was called upon by our car problems, She was superb and overcame difficulties that the RAC and various national car hire companies could not. Paula also welcomed our dog, which was safe within the enclosed garden, The cottage is ideally located for both the Brecon National Park and the coast.
Highly recommended.
