"Fantastic, beautiful and tranquil base for our explorations"
This cottage is gorgeous and very well equipped. It is well looked after and between Beverley and Caron you will be made to feel very welcome. Caron met us on arrival and showed us round while the children quickly raced off to fight over the bedrooms! There was a lovely welcome package of wine, chocolates and local delicacies which was greatly appreciated. We loved this cottage and used it as a base for visiting many local attractions and looked forward to coming home to it after a long day assured of a comfortable nights sleep. I would heartily recommend this cottage to anyone and we will most definitely be staying here again. Many thanks once again to Beverley and Caron x x
What a lovely comment.Thank you so much.It was an absolute pleasure to have you as guests.It would be a pleasure to have you return one day.Beverley

"Lovely comfortable cottage"
We stayed in Lothlorien Cottage for a week and found it very comfortable with everything we needed. We thought that the bottle of wine, welsh cakes and a few other items were a lovely touch, and there were even some treats for our dog, how fab. We met with Carol on arrival who is a lovely lady and Beverly very prompt and helpful via email with the booking process. The beds are so comfortable and there is plenty of storage for all your luggage. There are some wonderful walks and great things to see from this location so long as you have a car, we definitely recommend staying here. Thank you Beverley and Carol.
Thank you Vicky for your lovely review and I am glad your little dog appreciated his holiday treats.It would be lovely to welcome you again.

"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
