“Loved every minute and would galdly return”

Reviewed 4 Oct 2012

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. Watching the race horses run after breakfast was a pleasant surprise and feeding the geese and ducks with our grandaughter was always fun. 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.
