Thank you so much."
Ms B (May, 2018): Excellent  "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."

I bumped into the housekeeper the other day and she helped us when the TV stopped working, she is lovely and very helpful so thought it was worth a mention. Look forward to visiting again and thanks for everything."

Visit Wales Comments (October, 2016):
