Past Guest Comments:
Mrs C (July 2021): "We spent a wonderful week in number Tan Llan Cottage. The cottage was very comfortable, light and airy, it has a terrace area where you can eat with a view of the hills around. J and her family are helpful and friendly. The cottage is situated very close to the Trawsfyndd lake where we were able to paddle board, it also has a good cycle or walking path around the lake. We definitely hope to stay in the cottage again! I have kept it short but if you think more would help I can add more! We had a great week and J was a great host, not least because of the generous welcome pack. Thank you for your help"
