"Lothlorien cottage was immaculate when we arrived and we were amazed at how cosy and comfortable it felt. We loved the general style and really felt at home for the duration of the week. Although situated on the main road, you can hear no car noise when inside. The beds are ever so comfortable. The kitchen is very well stocked with everything you need to cook. We enjoyed playing the board games in the evenings. We took a walk to the hills behind the house (which you can see from the bathroom window upstairs)and it was the most beautiful walk I have ever taken. The beautiful early morning light and quiet, the warmth of the rising sun, the sheep calling out in the distance, everything was absolutely perfect! I would heartily recommend the cottage to anyone wanting to visit South Wales. "

"Excellent accomodation, fantastically positioned for work and lesiure"

With work I would normally stay in Hotels, but when booking the Cottage and upon arrival I was amazed at the value. On the kitchen table was a bottle of wine and some home made marmalade, a lovely touch. The cottage is so cosy and welcoming and it was so nice to able to bring along the family within the company budget. The cottage is brilliantly located for family activities and we cannot await to return. I strongly recommend booking here for value and a pleasant stay and we are looking forward to returning in the New Year.

Thank you very much.It is a pleasure to offer an alternative to hotels
for the weary business traveller
