Ms B (May, 2018): "The property we stayed in and the location was just fantastic. Waking up to gorgeous views all around, having a log burning fire in the evening and the properties were well equipped. We loved our stay here and would go back. The only slight downfall was the off road track that we had to drive our cars up to get to it."
M, C, L & S (March, 2017): "Fab week in the Costa del Cymru :-)."
A & S (Feb, 2017): "Another wonderful break in Cwm Teigl. Fantastic to find our beloved Cae Canol in winter weather. Delightful...Recommended"

Thank you so much - we will be back!"
Visit Wales Comments (October, 2016):
"Set in a very rural location one of three traditional properties where guests are advised that owing to the approach road a 4x4 vehicle for access might be prudent at certain times of the year. The properties have benefited from the works by the owner."
