Reviews:

Miss E (April 2021): Excellent  (Dowlais): "What a charming host and lovely cottage. The property is situated central to a whole host of activities, beaches and interesting days out. Tastefully decorated it also has a delightful garden surrounded by open space. The owner welcomed us with some lovely inviting home touches and was very helpful with ideas on local areas of interest. The larger property next door has been superbly refurbished and I would definitely be interested in returning with a larger group. In summary, this was an idyllic few days away and I can't think of a single area of improvement."
Dr E (April 2021):Excellent "The stay was wonderful, the accommodation perfect and the owners could not have done more for us. It was brilliant, quiet, spacious and so relaxing and I would give this place 10/10. Thank you for giving us a lovely holiday."
