Information about any additional facilities

These are just a few of our guests very kind comments about their stay at our cottage.

We had a fantastic stay! If we could give it 10 stars we would!
Andrew and Marina were perfect hosts and went above and beyond to provide everything to make the holiday perfect. Tracy & family 2017

My husband and I stayed here for 9 days. It's an absolutely stunning property and the owners have thought of everything you can possibly need. The grounds are lovely and lovingly maintained. The location is so peaceful, surrounded by fields. The only noise is the sound of birds! The tempur mattress in the main bedroom is so comfortable and guarantees you a good night's sleep. The owners are lovely and are close by should you need anything. Whilst it is a rural location, Pontivy is only a short drive away which has plenty of good restaurants to chose from. This really is a 5* property and exceptionally good value for money. We are likely to be back!! Thank you so much. T Holmes 2017
