We were given the warmest welcome from Evan, a very welcome hamper awaited us with cute Christmas decs and enough fire wood to keep the chilly nights away. We have had such a wonderful time here, the views are stunning.
Thank you for having us Evan, we’ve really enjoyed our stay especially the fire and the hot tub. We hope to come back in the summer one day.

Our third visit. Enjoyed our long weekend relaxing in front of the log burner when not walking along windswept Aberystwyth beach or watching the red kites being fed! Thank you Evan for your attention to detail at short notice.

Diane and Rosemary. Worcester and Devon. 22-27March 2019.

Thank you Evan for your warm welcome. We have had a lovely week walking in Wales.We have been fortunate with fantastic weather and have enjoyed coastal walks and surrounding hills. 20 min. walk to local pubs-good beer and decent pub grub in White Lion and excellent food in Black Lion, but limited opening times.
Very comfortable stay in cottage, spotlessly clean and ample facilities .Would definitely return for excellent accommodation to explore surroundings further.

What a place! So pretty and cosy.We have had a fabulous week here, made so much better by Evan who could not do enough for us.We arrived to a lovely welcome gift and were left magazines/ various information in the week too. We had a number of evenings sat in the hot tub watching the birds which was bliss. We ate in every night however the White Lion pub in the village does lovely sandwiches and amazing gin(112 bottles) at ridiculously cheap prices.
The cottage itself is very well equipped, we found everything we needed and more.Our lab pup had the time of his life too! We will definitely be recommending this beautiful place. Thank you for making us so welcome Evan.
Lee and Sophie Gratton. Stoke-on -Trent.26 April-3 May 2019.

Thank you Evan, yet again for another wonderful stay, our sixth visit I think?
We really do love coming here- it is such a beautiful place ,right on the edge of the valley so quiet and tranquil.The weather, thank goodness, has been very kind to us and we have had plenty of sunshine.This time Tess has even been accepting of Cymro. She loves to lay out in the garden in the fresh air. Peace perfect peace! We hope to come back again next year, if not sooner.
Judy,Peter and Brenda Edwards.Monmouthshire. 10-20May 2019

Thank you for a lovely stay. The cottage is amazing and you have been very welcoming from the start.You have so much knowledge of the area which is very helpful.
Olivia and Josh, Mick and Alice. Stoke-on Trent. 24-31 May 2019.

Thank you so much for the wonderful week at your cottages. We felt so welcomed and the attention to detail was fantastic.Your local knowledge was invaluable and we loved the sand dunes at Ynys Las. We walked to the White Lion at Talybont twice and even as far as Borth! Devils’ Bridge was excellent though a bit tiring with the dog as very steep.The Hafod estate walks were amazing. We hope to return and the dog is finally worn out.
Jason and Tracy with Oscar the dog. Lincolnshire.31 May-7June 2019.

This place is absolutely amazing.So clean- cosy-it has everything we could have possibly needed. The views are gorgeous, the hot tub is out of this world. You gave us great advice on where to go for days out which were suitable for the dog too.Looking at the ‘before’ photos of the cottage to seeing it now shows how
much work and love you have put into the place.The welcome basket was so unexpected and a lovely surprise, so thank so so much, we will absolutely be back. Thank you-all the best- see you soon.

It is our second time here. I guess because this cottage has so many repeat guests it says it all.The cottage is homely,comfortable,well equipped, in top condition and spotless, not to mention in a most idyllic location.Of course the piece de resistance is Evan himself with his warm welcome and gracious hospitality. We look forward to returning. We visited Caffi Gruff, coffee shop in Talybont — excellent coffee, friendly place— worth visiting and oh so close.
John and Pam Orange. Anten Mills, Ontario, Canada. 8-30 March 2019.

First-time visitors and as everyone else comments, a very impressive temporary home with all we need. Thanks very much Evan. The cleanest,smartest,friendliest,most peaceful cottage we have ever been to.If you want to truly relax-this is the place to be, and valley to be in too-beautiful.
Diolch yn fawr iawn i Evan ar Teulu-a Cymro wrth gwrs!

Just to add to all the other glowing reports of this beautiful holiday cottage.
It is a very special place so tranquil and positioned in a stunning valley. Possibly the nicest self catering we have stayed in and so beautifully equipped. The perfect home from home setting for celebrating my husbands’ 50th birthday and my joint 49th birthday.Our children 11,13, 15, have all fallen in love with this place and Wales. Thank you, we will be back.
