“A welcoming home from home in the valleys”
Reviewed 26 August 2013 for a stay in August 2013

Amanda welcomed us as soon as we arrived with freshly baked Welshcakes and was a great source of advice and help throughout our stay - thank you. The cottage was very homely and well equipped, with beautiful forest views from the back and a quiet, peaceful country lane at the front. The cottage's location in the forest is a real plus and it's a great place to relax and unwind. We chose the area because it was near Cardiff (and the Dr who Exhibition!!) but the area was a real surprise - up there on a par with the Highlands and the Lake District. At times you felt you could be in Austria.
The cottage's walls are very thick, and we heard no noise from neighbours and the garden is completely enclosed too so our dog was happy - although he did have some occasional arguments with the little pug next door. Cardiff and the bay is easily reached and Caerphilly and the M4 are close so you can quickly get to attractions all across South Wales. The cottage was a real gem and I would recommend a stay there to anybody.

“An lovely cottage in an ideal location in South Wales”
Reviewed 28 February 2013 for a stay in February 2013

We had a wonderful week staying in this lovely cottage in a beautiful part of Wales. It had everything we needed to make our time here a memorable experience. The owner, Amanda made us feel very welcome and we especially enjoyed the tasty homemade Welsh cakes she had waiting for us on our arrival.
The Cumcarn forest was a short walk away with its visitors centre and café where we all enjoyed breakfast! The cottage is in a very quiet location but within easy reach of the many attractions Wales has to offer.

“Wonderful Homely Place to Stay”
Reviewed 8 January 2013 for a stay in October 2012

Stayed here with some friends whilst visiting Wales and was delighted with the scenery and views of the location. The cottage is very cosy and homely and people in the area are very friendly.

Absolutely loved the Welsh cakes all ready and waiting for us when we arrived, was so pleased with the service provided by the landlady, Amanda, couldn't have been more helpful.

Can not wait to go back and experience the nearby walks as we did not get time to explore on our previous visit.
