Thank you for booking Bwthyn Ty'n Cae with us, its a shame that you feel this way about this cottage. We have not had an issue with the size of the rooms in the past however the price we charge reflects the size of the cottage, any bigger, then we would have to increase the price we charge. We apologise about the location of the meter and if the visitors are not tall enough to reach, a foot step has been provided by the owner. At different times of the year it isn't possible to walk through the fields due to the animals but there are miles and miles of sand dunes and a variety of beaches where people can go to. As has been quoted on numerous times, it is a walkers dream holiday. Further to your feedback we have changed the way that the 10 minutes walk is displayed on our website as people do walk on different fitness levels and this should be taken into consideration. We do hope that this hasn't put you off booking with Best of Wales again and we hope to speak to you soon. Best wishes, Ffion Best of Wales Team.

We are very sorry that your trip wasnt as positive as you hoped. We pride ourselves on excellent customer service. We would have been only too happy to respond to any concerns you had about the facilities at the time and certainly would have remedied the dripping noise if we'd known and WIFI problem if we had known you couldn't connect. I checked trains the week you stayed just in case there was a problem with the line that day and there didn't appear to be any issue. The trains go into Cardiff every 10-15 mins during the week and every 45-60 mins on a Sunday. We cannot see into the cottage at all during the day - it's only possible at night if the light is on curtains not drawn which is pretty normal. I can assure you that privacy is of upmost importance to our guests and ourselves and our development is designed to block out any disturbing noise between the two properties so apologies if this didn't work for you. I can assure you we couldn't and didn't hear you or your family. I hope your experience didn't put too much of a dampner on your visit to Wales.
