Peaceful location with great views. The place is traditional with spacious and traditional accommodation. Nice touches were a bottle of wine and flowers on the kitchen table for when we arrived. Communication from the owner ahead of our stay was very good. Very handy for dog owners as there's access to open fields behind the cottage.
My only niggles were that the kitchen is not very well equipped (e.g. blunt knives and an oven hob which was a pain to use) and they were a bit mean with the initial supply of logs left for free use.
We loved the cottage and had a thoroughly enjoyable and comfortable week. The new carpet throughout looks great and the enormous king-sized bed in the downstairs bedroom was a real treat. All the crockery etc in the seemingly new kitchen was great and all much appreciated (as were the welcoming flowers and Welsh cakes). We stayed in November and the cottage was toasty warm and we didn't really need to use the log burner, but of course we did as it was one of the reasons we booked in the first place!
Orsedd Wen cottage sets the standard for self catering holiday cottages - we were really impressed and would love to return. I have no hesitation in recommending.
There is also a totally private garden at the back and the property was lovely and quiet as it is surrounded by farmland and down a track, therefore away from any road which was also really important for us. The property is set almost opposite another rental called Orsedd Wen farmhouse, but other than sharing the track and the parking area you can be completely separate. If you rented both properties for a large family gathering I imagine this would be the ideal arrangement.
