We have loved the cottage,especially the hot tub,the beautiful walk down the village and the fireworks at New Quay.The host Evan was accommodating and freindly,very much enjoyed the Welsh Cakes. Definitely recommend and hopefully be back.

Second comfortable and enjoyable visit.Enjoyed the water in all its forms-rain and hot tub! Plenty of sunshine too.Catherine(Aberystwyth Student) studied hard but made the most of her board and lodgings-especially the home cooked food and bath. Feeling much fitter after many walks up and down the hills. Thank you Evan- see you next year!

After our stay”up the hill”at Llechwedd Mawr in splendid isolation, we decided to try Eithinog as a base to visit our son at AberUni.Thank you so much Evan for exceeding our expectations and for such a warm welcome.Lovely accommodation, much appreciated welcome pack and we used the hot tub even though its November.Diolch.

A huge thank you to Evan for such a warm welcome to a lovely cottage in a beautiful setting.The cottage was well equipped with everything we could have needed for the week and more,including the thoughtful welcome pack which made us feel right at home.
Evan was a wonderful host giving up his time to explain some of the history of both the farm and the local area including a guided tour up to his cottage on the hill.
The local area provided some very enjoyable walks with spectacular views,the week wasn’t long enough to see everything the area had to offer,so we will be sure to come back!

Our first visit to this area of Wales and have really enjoyed exploring both the coast and the hills. Made good use of the walking books in the cottage and would recommend :
The Hafod Circular ( walk23) in the Aberystwyth & Cwm Rheidol book, The Messy Seat Falls and the Cavern Cascade are also really spectacular.
We found the cottage perfect for our stay,such high quality in such a quiet location with beautiful views. The welcome’goodies’ were very much appreciated and Evan is the perfect host and so interesting to chat to about farming in the area over the years.
We hope everyone in the future enjoys their stay as much as we have.

The children had great fun walking,exploring,going pond dipping and spending time relaxing as a family.

Angie and I have had a wonderful stay at your cottage.The big draw for us was being in such a dark area with no light pollution. It’s so rare to get a properly secluded cottage like this! Great for star-gazing!!
We’ve had a lovely time but it was over way too fast, we will be back.

Thank very much for a very special two weeks in your cottage over Christmas-New Year 2017-2 018. I can honestly say that I haven’t felt so relaxed in months.We had absolutely everything we needed in the cottage.David really enjoyed doing his “man chores” as we call it,just bringing in the wood and looking after the generator of a morning. We couldn’t get enough of the views from the cottage of the surrounding hills as it is a very beautiful place.
You are such a natural host,it was very kind of you to offer to bring up extra supplies to the cottage if we needed them.
The cottage was immaculately clean,such credit to you and your cleaners.
We will definitely be coming back to stay again, and will recommend the cottage to friends and family.
David&Siobhan Wood. Church Crookham. 21Dec-4Jan 2018.
