They had left many goodies for us in the fridge and around the house and we felt very welcome there. Great size house and well equipped. One slight moan would be that a few windows do not have curtains but this was all trumped by the extremely comfy bed in the master bedroom! The beach and pier are a short walk down the road and shops are very close so it's easy to get supplies. We had a wonderful stay and would come again.

The cabin itself is amazing and caters for all your needs for the time away. It's cosy, warm and clean with plenty of crockery and utensils. We used the fire pit although said rusty by others it worked well. The Taff's trail is great for walking or bike riding and the cabin is close to the trains but not a nuisances for noise. easy walk through the trail to reach the train station. With regular trains into Cardiff. A must is a visit to Fagans bar very friendly and allowed the dogs in. We will love to come back again but with are bikes. Thank you again for the wine on arrival. We hope everything was in order when we left xx

The owner was extremely helpful and made sure that everything was to our satisfaction. The wifi was very useful and the hot tub very relaxing after spending the day visiting some of the many attractions nearby. These were brought to our attention by the owner with a really helpful handout which included all websites, phone numbers and post codes for the sat nav. We had a great few days away and would highly recommend to families as there is loads to do in the area, as well as the wifi to keep the kids entertained while the adults relax in the tub!
