Our Little Piece Of Wales

This place is indescribable. Debbie and Roger are the nicest and friendliest hosts. Nothing was too much bother. The cottage exceeded our expectations. It was cosy and just like home - somewhere you long to be after a long day out walking in the rain, sat in front of the fire with a rum and coke, before sleeping in the comfiest of beds. The kitchen was ace too…really well equipped which is super rare. The location is ideal for those wanting to escape the world - star gazing in the hot tub was mesmerising. Thanks for having us stay. We’ll definitely be back. Łukasz and Dan

Our stay at Debbie and Rogers cottage was perfect. The cottage is in a perfect location if you want peace and quiet but still relatively close to places like Pen Y Fan and the four waterfalls trail. The flat had everything you need for your stay. The hot tub was an amazing bonus. It has privacy and an amazing view for sunsets over the beautiful allotment and Welsh hills.  An all round an amazing stay.

We had a great stay in the ‘Doris Cottage’. It was in a beautiful location, had everything we needed (and more) and most importantly was ran by wonderful owners. Debbie and Roger were amazing. They couldn’t do enough to help us, wether this be advice of local places for us to visit or helping light the hot tub. (Which was also amazing). We couldn’t recommend this place enough. We’ll be booking again next summer. Thankyou so much!
