"An amazing holiday in a beautiful rural location. The cottage has everything you need for a truly relaxing stay. It's well equipped and well presented, a real home from home. I wanted to address an earlier review as the comments made me hover over booking this property for a few days. Firstly the cleanliness, it was second to none, the whole cottage was spotless, someone mentioned it wasn't but please rest assured, it really is. Someone also mentioned the road leading up to the property and how you need a 4x4, you don't. It is a small road and you have to drive carefully but you're literally in the middle of nowhere, almost off the beaten track, I would expect these kind of conditions. I would without hesitation book again, we only stayed for 5 nights and didn't manage to do half the things we wanted, everyone was very sad to leave, not just the cottage but the picturesque area of Wales as well.
