"Un petit coin de paradis"

Nous avons passé d'excellentes vacances dans ce cottage, parfait en tous points. La nature environnante est exceptionnelle et intacte (nous avions même des faisans pour voisins). Mer et montagne ne sont pas éloignées. Nous recommandons vivement Ty Uchaf à toute personne souhaitant se détendre et se ressourcer en pleine nature.

"Simply perfect!"

We were so delighted with our choice in accomodation for our family holiday. The house was just great; spacious, bright and clean, with everything you could need. The area was truly beautiful, surrounded by hills, wildlife of all types and very friendly local folk. We definately will to return to Ty Uchaf in the near future hopefully with friends to share the experience.

"An absolutely beautiful cottage in beautiful surroundings!"

We cannot praise Keith and Tammy's cottage enough. It was gorgeous, full of character, spacious, safe for children (with lots of space to play outside) and right in the heart of the most beautiful scenery we had ever seen! The log burner in the snug kept us warm and cosy even on the coldest nights, along with the central heating and piping hot water. As soon as we set foot in the cottage we honestly didn't want to leave! It truly felt like a 'home from home' and the kids felt the same! There were hundreds of books to browse through, a chess set (which the kids loved playing!) tv, hi fi, everything you could possibly need. We would recommend this cottage to anyone, from couples or groups of friends going mountain biking to young families seeing the surrounding sights, we honestly couldn't recommend it enough!
