“Perfect cottage and hot tub getaway”
Reviewed 29 December 2014 for a stay in December 2014

We loved this cottage and thought it was very good value for money. As it was Christmas, the owner asked up front if we would like decorations, and when we got there we found a lovely tree and very tasteful decorations. The welcome pack of goodies were high quality, and the stock kitchen items were welcome and plentiful. The kitchen has high quality appliances and is very well lighted. The hot tub was excellent - we probably would have appreciated some lighting to make it easier to read in the tub at night. The property is dog friendly, and the nice sized yard is securely fenced. WiFi was very fast. The TV was very small - too small for the distance to the sofas, but we didn't come here to watch TV.

Location is pretty good - an easy 45 min walk downhill gets you to Newcastle Emlyn and all its pubs, shops, and interesting castle and river. Cardigan is not too far away, and has a very very nice cinema. It's too bad there aren't more walking paths / rights of way accessible from the cottage (at least according to our OS map), but if we return we'll take our bikes as all the one lane tracks look to make for some good days out.

Liked best: The hot tub.
Liked least: For some reason the beds/pillows/covers did not offer a good night sleep. This is the first place I've stayed this has been an issue - not sure why?

“Amazing place”
Reviewed 18 April 2014 for a stay in April 2014

We recently stayed at the Granary cottage with my parents and 16 yr old son. it was an idealic place for a holiday where we all wanted quality time together. The cottage is beautiful and equiped with everything you could want. The hot tub was a great way of relaxing after a day sight seeing. Mum, who is recovering from cancer could often be found sitting in the courtyard on a bench with a cat on her lap watching the peacocks.

Sally and Russell (the owners) are close to hand if needed and will often recommend places to visit etc... I can not recommend this cottage enough

“Fantastic home away from home. Rest, relaxation and exploration”

My husband and I have just returned from 5 nights stay in Blaenfforest Granary. We were looking for a restful place to spend a week relaxing and to de-stress from work. When we arrived at Blaenfforest it was a picturesque farm; imagine jumping into a Beatrix Potter story book, and you'd be close. In the middle of a beautiful piece of land surrounded by forestry, fields and a running river stood our little granary for the week. We were greeted with a warm welcome by Sally, the owner. She made sure we had everything we needed and showed us around before handing over the keys and wishing us a peaceful stay. Needless to say, we were left to our own devices and free to spend the week as we wished with the privacy we had hoped for.

Now, the features of this beautiful place; Inside every detail was perfect. We had several items as part of a welcome package to get us settled including a bottle of wine, fresh eggs from the farms chickens, some home made chocolates, fresh flowers, caramel wafers and some very lovely toiletries which I treasured. The Granary had everything we would need for the week, a washing machine, dishwasher, hoover, ironing board, all the crockery and cooking utensils included, towels, and even hair-dryers in each room. Each room was made up so we had a choice and each had its own en-suite. The Granary was decorated with original items from its past use and had lots of warm lighting. We also had a TV with DVD player, Ipod dock, a beautiful wood burner which my husband loved with a basket full of wood and a box with kindeling and, a very welcome addition; a 7 seater hot tub with lighting, ipod dock inbuilt and massaging jets.

Sally and Russel had left us a folder filled with recommended pubs, places to visits, as well as the history of the farm which was very interesting to read and suggested walking routes around the forest. I could go on and on, we had a fantastic rest and felt no pressure to get up early or do anything. We went in the hot tub everyday and even had plastic wine glasses for us to take a drink in. The farm is full of life. There are many peacocks, Guinea-fowl, chickens and many other animals. We spent time going around the farm feeding the chickens and peacocks and were happily greeted by two lovely cats who became our good friends. This was followed by a beautiful walk around the river and forest in the sun which led up to a pond. The bottom line is, if you are looking for somewhere to escape day to day life, to experience all that the countryside has to offer and if you don't mind lots of perky peacocks and guinea-fowl, then this is the place for you. Wonderful hosts, beautiful idyllic surrounding, a piece of heaven. We will definitely be returning. Thank you.
