"Wonderful Christmas break in welcoming and beautifully presented Talybont house. We had an excellent Christmas break at Henborth Mawr Cottage. The owner had taken great care to prepare everything for us and the house was immaculately presented. We were met by the owner who made us feel very welcome and at home. She was very helpful and provided us with a generous and well thought out seasonal welcome pack. The house was warm and beautifully decorated for Christmas. All aspects of the house ensured our stay was hassle free and enjoyable. We had no difficulty cooking Christmas dinner with all the trimmings. We found the surrounding area fascinating and even the weather was kind to us. I cannot recommend the house highly enough.
