A beautiful house with a panoramic outlook over fields and hills. Furnishings, bedding, etc are all top quality. We really enjoyed our stay even though we had poor weather at the back end of the week. This is when the underfloor heating in the living area came into its own. Our only negative comment was the condition of the bath in the lovely bathroom. We knew that there was no shower before we booked but on arrival we found getting in and mainly out of the narrow bath was made extremely difficult due to the central position of the large water fill pipe. This would be better positioned at one end of the bath. Also the bath itself needs re enamelling. Overall, we had a lovely week in a well appointed house with every convenience.
A gorgeous place with a spectacular view, warm, cosy and welcoming.
We didn't really know what to expect upon arrival at Tan-Y-Graig, the pictures on the website don't really do it justice. After some exact co-ordinates given by Glen the owner we found the location no problem despite it being in the middle of no-where! We were greeted on arrival by Glen and his gorgeous little daughter and were shown around. First impressions were better than ever could have been expected. The place is gorgeous. Bread and home produced eggs awaiting on arrival and everything is kitted out with top spec equipment from the kitchen to the bathroom was very homely. Heated flooring in the lounge and kitchen area and goose feather pillows made this a little comfort haven! The log burner was a real treat during some suspect weather conditions. The view out of the apex window is just simply stunning. Quiet, romantic and peaceful. Even the pheasant hunters in the grounds one morning added to its rural charm. The TV is kitted out with Netflix and there are a million books for you to read, what more could you ask for! A walk around the properties grounds is a must for further breathtaking views from the top of the hill. A trip to the waterfall just over the border is also a must. All in all a special new year in a special little place, we will definitely be returning.
