As a family of 4 we found it very pleasant and peacefull . The interior design was very cute and shabby chic . All the mod cons you would need . A great place too use as a base for a week in Wales Cardiff and Barry's sandy beaches nearby and good roads too the breacon beacons and other places too see . Would recommend this too anyone looking for something different . Try the curry house at the end of the high street and don't let its exterior put you off it was one of the best currys ive eaten .?

Both cottages were well equipped with everything that is needed, the basics were provided (tea, coffee, milk, dish washer tablets, washing up liquid, kitchen roll etc). Lots of towels and comfortable bedding were provided too The location is ideal for beach, walking, mountain biking, site seeing in general (choice of 3 castles :-) and is close enough to Cardiff for a city visit. Christine and Rob were very helpful with booking and ensuring our stay was perfect. The pub next door was ideal, we visited twice and where not disappointed with any of the dishes. We would highly recommend this property to family and friends and hope to go back as there is so much to do in the area it is well worth a second visit. Thank you
