"Lovely Cottage"

Sehr hübsches Cottage - Bilder entsprechen genau der Realität. Wir wurden sehr warm willkommen geheissen mit Welsh Cake und Tee. Das Cottage liegt sehr ruhig am Dorfrand in 5 Minuten Gehdistanz zum kleinen Ausflugs - Café des Cwmcarn Forest. Idealer Ausgangspunkt für Wanderer, Mountainbiker und Cardiff Interessierte (Auto notwendig).

Thank you so much for the lovely comment and glad you enjoyed stay all xxx

"A great time"

Very good value for money in a really central location for visiting Cardiff and plenty of other places. Warm and comfortable, and very peaceful. Amanda is an excellent hostess and goes that extra mile to make her guests welcome - literally in this case as when my car got a puncture she came to take my friends back to the house while I waited for a tow-truck to collect me and my car. Then she found someone who could replace the tyre the following morning so our holiday was hardly disrupted at all. I found all the people I met in this area to be very friendly and helpful, but Amanda was definitely in a class of her own!

Thank you so much for the lovely comments and so glad that you enjoyed stay

Ty Nance was a lovely retreat, great for exploring the surrounding countryside and walks, with good access to Cardiff city centre. Amanda was a great hostess and the Welsh cakes made a special addition to the welcome late at night.

Thank you very much for lovely comments and glad you enjoyed stay . even though it poured with rain….

"A place for great holidays"

Our nice contact with the owner Amanda started with the booking of Ty-Nance Cottage. She was allways very helpfull and patient with all my questions. Thank's for that, Amanda! When we arrived, she came within one minute for the keys. She explained us all in the house, the places we should visit and gave us a warm welcome with welsh cake. The house by itself is very nice, clean and well equiped. The neighbourhood has been very friendly and quite too.The bed in the masterbedroom has a new mattress, we witnessed the buying

Thank you so much for the lovely comments and hope you enjoyed staying in Cwmcarn

"Comfortable, cosy cottage in lovely, peaceful setting"

A lovely little terraced cottage in a beautiful location, just a couple of hundred yards from the Cwmcarn Forest visitor centre. Very peaceful, and the nearby forest walks were good, with great views across the Bristol Channel if you made it to the hill tops. The owner, Amanda, was very welcoming and made us Welsh cakes for our arrival which went down very well with the family! We used the cottage as a base to visit Cardiff, family and some of the tourist attractions nearby, and it was ideally suited for that. We would certainly consider coming back.

Thank you so much for the lovely comments and glad you enjoyed stay.

"A superb property in a fantastic location - a proper 'home from home'"

The owners are a lovely couple - nothing was too much trouble from bringing a plate of 'welshcakes' upon our arrival to offering advice for places to visit during our stay. The property is a quaint cottage and instantly felt like 'home from home' - a very well equipped kitchen and a lovely bathroom. The garden is currently being 'upgraded' and will be a lovely place to sit out on warm summer evenings with beautiful views on all sides. I would have no problems in recommending this property to family and friends. Hope to visit again some day - June 2012

we are so glad you enjoyed staying in the cottage . Thank you for lovely comments.

"cosy comfortable cottage with well equipped kitchen, beautiful surrounding area"

We were welcomed by a lovely land lord and lady with freshly baked welsh cakes. The cottage provided a perfect home for a weeks work in the local area, a cosy fire and sofa for unwinding in the evening. The kitchen was brilliantly equipped - what a relief to be able to make a proper cup of coffee! It was comforting to have such details catered for. A stream at the bottom of the garden and incredibly beautiful surrounding area, a very memorable to stay.

Thank you so much for lovely comments .Glad you enjoyed your stay.
