We absolutely loved our stay in this beautiful cottage in a beautiful location. The owners were friendly and helpful but not intrusive . We could have happily stayed in the cottage for the entire week enjoying the views, the peace and quiet and the hot tub. Ideally situated for country walks, Cardiff, the coastline, Brecon Beacons and more .
The children loved sleeping in the attic bedroom and have insisted we return again which we would love to do as there is so much more to explore.
Beautiful family cottage in a gorgeous setting
We had an amazing stay at the cottage with our young family. Nestled in the heart of the welsh countryside we found it peaceful and relaxing.
The cottage itself was clean and well equipped and had everything we needed including laundry and dishwasher. The library of books and dvds to use made it really feel like home and we wished we had booked a second week.
The kids loved being able to meet the horses every morning on the beautiful walk to the tree swing, which they maintain was one of the highlights of our trip.
Loved the hottub too and the hospitality shown. The welcome basked was a lovely touch too.
Thanks for a fantastic stay!!
The perfect family retreat
My family and I had such a fabulous time at Jon and Sian's cottage. It's an idyllic spot and was the perfect base for us all to relax in during the week of my daughter's graduation at Cardiff University (Cardiff City is less than half an hour away by car). We took our dog who adored the grounds and the horses, and there was plenty to do around the area. Just an hour away from the Brecon Beacons, we climbed Pen y Fan, and spent time on the coast and enjoyed browsing in Cowbridge (a beautiful village nearby). The cottage is absolutely gorgeous and we were made to feel very welcome. We had all we needed in the kitchen and plenty of space for seven of us. The Dishwasher was a huge bonus but the icing on the cake was the beautiful, relaxing hot tub enjoyed by all. We all truly felt as though we'd had a proper break from the busy life of work and daily chores. Thank you to Jon, Sian and family for our awesome retreat.
We enjoyed the stay in the cottage very much. Very pretty, we even did not use the television the whole week, because we enjoyed the quietness, exquisiteness of the cottage and the nature so much.
If we are coming back to the Cardiff area, we will stay here again.
Lovely place, great views, peaceful yet close to amenities.
Loved the cottage. Brilliant kitchen - great place for family gatherings. Appreciated the Twinings. Washing/ drying facilities excellent. Comfortable, quirky and tasteful.
Perfect Christmas Cottage
We stayed here for Christmas & we are so glad we picked this cottage it was perfect. It’s lovely & spacious, everything is set out beautifully, huge kitchen & diner then into living room again spacious with comfy sofas and a chair. We arrived late in the evening to find a beautiful real Christmas tree all decorated, wasn’t expecting that such a lovely thought and very much appreciated, also a welcome pack of bread, milk, biscuits, mince pies & bottle of Prosecco, delicious We had a wonderful warm, cosy Christmas in the cottage it was perfect for us a real get away for us and our 2 dogs. Jon, Sian and their family were so helpful if you needed them they told us of some good walks for the dogs and beaches to visit. The information pack in the cottage also gives you this and where the shops are etc. Porthkerry Country Park was a favourite of ours for walking as it was sheltered and quiet, also Limpet Bay near the power station was good, the beach is big pebbles but you can walk behind the beach on the grass. We will definitely be coming back, such a wonderful cottage, thanks so much for making our Christmas so wonderful.
