This must be our 6th visit to beautiful Hafod y Garreg. As always, a warm welcome, marvellous food, and luxurious bedding in an exceptionally comfortable bed!!! As special as ever - this secret little spot is peaceful and perfect, another world.

My husband and I have just spent two lovely restful, peacefulnights, along with out two Westies, at Hafod y Garreg.We had a wonderful time, right from turning up and being invited to share champagne to celebrate Annie's birthday, to sitting outside on the grass at 11pm, drinking wine (we had been advised to take our own) and discussing our future...

A perfect antidote to the busy festive period, Hafod-Y-Garreg provided a retreat custom made for any weary body or mind. A beautiful and intriguing building which transports you back to a historical idyll of log fires and dramatic countryside. John and Annie are great hosts who add to the charm and can't help but to make you feel welcomed and...

We have today returned from a 2 night stay here for my birthday weekend with friends. Everything I had hoped it would be, it was. And more. John and Annie were brilliant! Friendly, amusing, knowledgable and just generally wonderful hosts. The food is amazing. John cooks you a breakfast that more than prepares you for the days walking ahead and...

Jon and Annie are devine hosts. As a guest at Hafod y garreg it is more like being a private house guest than a paying guest at a B&B. As hosts they make you feel totally relaxed and at home. There is no daily room service but that affords a degree of privacy and relaxation, I personally always feel the...

We stayed for two nights and loved our short break there. Being able to stay in the oldest house in Wales was a treat in itself, but on top of this, John and Annie were warm and friendly hosts full of helpful advice about local places to visit. Thanks to John mentioning the magnificent Drovers Road to Cardigan Bay, we...

This is definitely different from most B&Bs. The decanter of sherry in the room and a glass of wine before dinner and the offer of tea on arrival and when returning from a day out are all very welcome and hospitable touches. The owners are very sociable and appear to want to talk about the history of their house but...

I went here with my girlfriend for three nights, and thought it was fantastic. The hosts are extremely warm and friendly. The room was very comfortably furnished, with a very well appointed bathroom. The food (breakfast, and dinner on request) was of a really high quality. The setting is exceptional: this is a lovely part of Wales, with great access...

Having found theB&B on on line and seen the pictures I still cannot get over how quaint and romantic the cottage is. Anyone staying there will be charmed by the beautiful location and feeling of history and character from the 1402 year house.
