Fabulous stay again Evan & Family. Really chilled out.Always the perfect hosts.

Alice & Mike Powis. Stoke-on- Trent. 21-28 Sept 2018.
Charming hosts and property. Very nice welcome pack.We enjoyed our stay with inlaws and their dog next door. Loved the ploughed field to exercise the dog.Even saw a red kite sitting on a fence post on the drive.Bwlch Nant-yrArian well worth a visit to see the red kites being fed, and walks. Ynys Las Beach a good area to walk the dog.
Dennis,Doreen & Daniel. Charlie & Stan. Merseyside.28 Sept-4 Oct 2018.

Thank you for making my Mum and I so welcome in Eithinog.A lovely cosy and well fitted cottage, just perfect for our break.Being on the same level was ideal for my Mum and she really enjoyed the hot tub watching the red kites circling above. We will definitely be back! Please pass on our thanks to the cleaner for the prime condition of the cottage.
Sandra & Joy. Bedfordshire. 12-19 Oct 2018.

From the moment we arrived we have enjoyed every minute of our stay.Thank you so much Evan for your amazing hospitality, you have created a piece of heaven here. The cottage ,so spacious and well- kitted out, the location, with the beautiful and tranquil surroundings—just perfect.Most importantly the children loved it too.From enjoying the local walks, playing down by the river to visiting the local beaches and places further afield. We would also recommend the Vale of Rheidol railway ride-it exceeded our expectations.If you enjoy a nice barbi, then the Butcher inBow Street is the place to get your steak and scrumptious lamb chops!Hopefully you will have us again next year.

A delightful cottage not far from anywhere with plenty of everything to do.
The key part for us was how close it was to Ynys Las sand dunes and beach-
definitely worth a visit. The weather was perfect for it! We will be back!!-Rhys.
The house was very comfortable and welcoming.We have all had a great time.
Thank you Evan-Angharad.
Evan was kind and generous as always. Lovely place much less remote than the hill.We’ll be back.-Bill.

After countless visits to this wonderful location, it’s starting to feel like our second home-particularly as Evan has grown to be a good friend after all these years.Our first visit was seven years ago, and the standards in the cottage are as magnificent as ever.The region offers exactly what we need for a relaxing Welsh escape, and we will be back soon.Thanks Evan for your wonderful hospitality!
Bruce, Louise & Mae Harfield. Dubai, UAE. 11-18 August 2018.

Although the wettest week we have experienced for many years, the warmth, charm and comfort of Helygen allows a complete escape from the adverse elements! Our fifth visit and as one of your recents comments-It just gets better each time. The Welsh air, countryside and Evan’s welcome tell it all -If Michelin ever started giving rosettes for Welsh Cottages they could start their award right here!

We were all so looking forward to coming to Wales and to seeing Llechwedd Mawr cottage.We were not disappointed in the slightest.
