Thank you for that lovely review of Hillcrest cottage ..it is very true that this is the quieter part of the Cotswolds, known as the "undiscovered Cotswolds". We have beautiful hill and valley scenery ,so that around every corner is something different... perfect for walks with loads to see.... but yes one of the best views around is from Hillcrest cottage! There is so much to do and see locally because we are in between 2 villages and a town with the award winning Farmers Market, that I hope all my info with photos in the cottage, helped you make the most of your stay.

We are so very glad you loved your stay at Hillcrest Cottage-that means I have done my job! We dont ask for reviews ( unlike many cottage owners) so that is even better when you have taken the time and trouble-Thank you. We know we are priviledged to live in such a beautiful & quieter part of the Cotswolds and to share those STUNNING VIEWS with Hillcrest Cottage. I do try to make it home from home beyond the practical things of our "special" cooker, etc, with the finishing touches.This includes make the childrens bedroom feel welcoming too ... happy children means happy parents. Today the beautiful views of autumn trees in the sunshine, beckens for me to tend the cottage garden before winter really sets in ! Thank you once again for your review.

Kidwelly will be celebrating 900 years of history in 2015; there will be plenty of activities going on, including concerts, exhibitions and other events, so if you are thinking of visiting this area it is worth checking the Kidwelly Town website to peruse the programme.
