Absolutely stunning

5 of 5
Paul and Sara What a delightful cosy cottage you have, our three night stay (three adults, two dogs) couldn't have been more perfect. We would highly recommend to anybody! The cottage facilities are just what we needed and more, The Eagles pub next door served great food and the service was lovely. We will be returning as soon as we can! Thank you so so much.

Cosy cottage , lovely village

4 of 5
Clean, cosy cottage and wonderful friendly village. Aled was very helpful, both with practicalities of the cottage as well as advice about the local area. The Dudley arms pub is the best pub I have been in for years - friendly landlord, lots of locals and wonderful pub grub. Thanks very much - we thoroughly enjoyed our stay
