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."

Thanks for sharing this wonderful home of yours!"

Visit Wales Comments (December 2019):
"Set in a very rural location one of three traditional properties where guests are advised that owing to the approach a 4x4 vehicle for access might be prudent at certain times of the year. The properties have benefitted from the works by the owner with each having balcony bedroom off the lounge with electric heating. The farmhouse is an historic property and Grade 2 listed."
