I felt instantly at home when I walked through the door of Ramblers Rest. It is warm and cozy and has that something that you can't quite put your finger on that made me feel relaxed and content. Thanks Christina for being a great host, look forward to returning sometime.

Management response:

Thank you for your review - we do try to make the cottage welcoming, and so enjoy visitors enjoying Crickhowell. Christina
