"Loved every minute and would galdly return"

We were only able to spend five nights at Uwch-y-llyn and we wish we could have stayed longer. The location is ideal with Cardiff only a short drive away and the Gower coast only slightly further. Our hosts, Katherine and Philip were very kind and accomodating.

The apartment itself is definitely deserving of the a five star rating and there was more than enough room for a family dinner for seven.
