“Cosy little cottage”
Reviewed May 27, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Stayed during half term cosy little stone cottage in beautiful surroundings. Place was clean and tidy with a brand new bathroom and lovely well equipped kitchen with everything we needed. Good instructions on how to work heating etc. ideally located for exploring ceredigion coast, tresaith, penbryn and llangranog beaches. Can imagine it is warm and charming with the woodburner on but we didn't need it. Beds were comfy with clean linen. Pretty picturesque garden which would be lovely to sit in during warm summer evenings. Enjoyed our stay will definitely go back.

“Country Retreat”
Reviewed April 2, 2014 for a stay in March 2014

A beautiful spot to take a relaxing break. To me the garden with its primroses and bubbling stream running along the bottom is definitely the gem of this cottage rental. We stayed in March and were always warm in the cottage with its central heating and log burning stove in the lounge. The kitchen is very well equipped (a tea towel would have been nice, luckily we bought our own.) I was surprised that the bathroom was downstairs, but this really was not a problem. We found the cottage to be clean with fresh bed linen, the mattress could do with renewing as it is rather uncomfortable. There were a few blue bottles appeared and a couple of butterflies that must have been hibernating through the winter not unexpected at this time of year and we were probably the first guests this season. There were rather a lot of cobwebs between the wardrobe and the cottage wall in the main bedroom, but this was only an issue for me (an arachnophobe,) luckily no spiders were seen.
Would we stay here if we were visiting the area again? Yes most definitely.

Thank you very much for your constructive feedback. We do like to continually improve the accommodation and have invested in new mattresses and a new TV.
There are plans for further improvements during the winter months and we've taken on board your comments about preparing the property at the beginning of the season.

“just ok,not very clean,cold,”
Reviewed February 4, 2014 for a stay in October 2013

just ok,not very clean.
not as bad as the other reviewer on here but there was a lot of dust under the beds and other places.
the place was freezing and there was water on the floor upon arrival.
it took an age to figure out how to turn on the heating,no instructions,
tv just about working.
emailed the owners but no satisfactory outcome between us,
clearly an issue with the cleaning of the property and should have been rectified after the previous reviewers problems.
wont stay again

I am very sorry this guest didn't enjoy their stay as much as others as we have had some really positive comments left in the visitors book.
Extracts of these include: -
"lovely well equipped cottage", "quiet place where you can relax", "peaceful and convenient location".

The cottage is traditional Welsh stone walls that are 2 feet thick so in Winter it can take a few hours for the heat to get in but once it is it's really warm and cosy.

“dont stay here”

We stayed here but left after one night, the cottage we were shocked was so dirty. Carpets were filthy with floors really dirty and had not been cleaned. Hairs and dirt under sofas and beds. The bath and toilet was so dirty. The grill pan we didn't cook on because again was dirty. The living room very dark and cluttered. I have stayed all over the world and have never been greeted with such a dirty place

I am disappointed the guest decided to place this review. There was a mix up with the booking so the accommodation had not been cleaned but this was all sorted amicably and they received a full refund. We have reviewed arrangements to make best endeavours this doesn't happen again.

“Great time had by all.”
Reviewed August 26, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

I would really recommend this cottage to all types. It is well situated to explore the beautiful countryside and wonderful coastline of Ceredigion.The cottage itself is well equipped with everything needed to make life easy for those who are eating in.The garden is lovely and a real bonus for those with children.There are lots of things to see with in easy reach just look through the numerous brochures provided and go to what ever takes your fancy, the local beach is good when the tide is out but best to check before you go.

“Quaint old cottage in lovely peaceful country location”
Reviewed May 25, 2013 for a stay in May 2013

We stayed for 4 days at the cottage, which is in a lovely country setting about a mile or so away from the village of Llanrrhystud - between Aberystwyth and Aberaeron. We didn't go to the village pub or shop so can't comment on them. The cottage was quite cool and dark inside as you should expect of old cottages but the heating worked pretty well - weather was cool for May anyway. The cottage was well equipped, especially the kitchen and there were nice touches like fresh candles. If we'd had young children there were some toys and games which would have been very welcome. There was also a travel cot in one of the bedrooms. The bedding and towels were good quality but the mattress was a bit of a disappointment - bit too firm, not bouncy enough and you could feel the springs! The garden was pretty with a stream running along the end. It was a good location for visiting places. we'd recommend going to the National Trust property at Llanchaeron near Abaraeron, which has a smallish house, farm and lake and lovely little café with homemade food. Also went on the steam railway to Devil's Bridge which was fun. Best eating place we went to was the Druids Inn at Goginan - really good food (we had delicious lamb pie and steak pie) and super friendly staff and clientele - they allowed us to taste the wines and beers before deciding which to have!
