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.
