“Wow, what a week! It felt like home away from home in this lovely little cottage, nestled in the foothills of the Black Mountains. Thanks to owner Beverley for the friendly communication right from the get-go, and to Caron the housekeeper for the warm welcome to Cwmgors. We'll definitely be coming back for the all round comfort of the place, the excellent nights' sleep, the stunning walks all around, the easy access both to beaches Gower and the Brecon Beacons and, lest we forget, the tastiest fish and chips I've had in quite a while, just a 10 minute walk down the road...In short, everything was there that we could possibly need to have a very active but restful week away from the pressures of the city. Thanks again, Phil & Amy ”

I spent New Years Eve and a few more days at Lothlorien Cottage. I was amazed how nice it was . The size of the house was just perfect. . You can find everything you need inside - from cups and plates, to washing machine and tumble dryer. And just to mention welcome pack - bottle of champagne and box of shortbread, which was a very nice touch. Cottage was clean and tidy. Garden is beautiful as well, although we couldn't enjoy it as much as it was raining . I can only imagine how beautiful it is in summer. Due to the winter weather we could't explore Brecon Beacon, but we had a chance to see a tiny bit of it. The cottage is on the edge of the national park. We managed to see a few sheep as well as a few horses, which was a big attraction for us. I chosen this cottage because the owner was very helpful when I called to ask for details. She is very polite lady, she made our stay unforgettable. She sent me all maps and information pack to ensure that we have a good time. She also sent me an welcome email on the first day as well as goodbye email on our last day. That was very nice. I would definitely go back and I would deeply recommend this place. We really enjoyed stay in your cottage, we had fantastic time.

It was real pleasure working/communicating with you

Once the weather is better, you will hear from me again. :-)

“Great for exploring beaches, gardens and castles!”

Reviewed 1 Aug 2015

We had a lovely time in this very well laid out, well equipped and well organised cottage. Brilliant for exploring the Brecons and the Gower Peninsula. The National Botanic Gardens of Wales were really beautiful. Could have spent many more days exploring and discovering this new area. Gorgeous beaches and some spectacular scenery. Caron and Beverley very welcoming and helpful! My niece was especially impressed with the sweetie jar and the more mature members of the party appreciated the welcome bottle of pink stuff after a long drive!

Owner's reply: Hello again and many thanks for your kind review.The area is still a well kept secret so I am so glad your whole family found something to enjoy.The national botanic gardens is very proud to offer fantastic events and I am glad you all enjoyed them.The sweetie jar always gets an appreciation and I am glad your neice enjoyed herself.Thank you once again.

“Fantastic, beautiful and tranquil base for our explorations”

Reviewed 12 Oct 2014

This cottage is gorgeous and very well equipped. It is well looked after and between Beverley and Caron you will be made to feel very welcome. Caron met us on arrival and showed us round while the children quickly raced off to fight over the bedrooms! There was a lovely welcome package of wine, chocolates and local delicacies which was greatly appreciated. We loved this cottage and used it as a base for visiting many local attractions and looked forward to coming home to it after a long day assured of a comfortable nights sleep. I would heartily recommend this cottage to anyone and we will most definitely be staying here again. Many thanks once again to Beverley and Caron x x

“Lovely comfortable cottage”

Reviewed 8 Mar 2014

We stayed in Lothlorien Cottage for a week and found it very comfortable with everything we needed. We thought that the bottle of wine, welsh cakes and a few other items were a lovely touch, and there were even some treats for our dog, how fab. We met with Carol on arrival who is a lovely lady and Beverly very prompt and helpful via email with the booking process. The beds are so comfortable and there is plenty of storage for all your luggage. There are some wonderful walks and great things to see from this location so long as you have a car, we definitely recommend staying here. Thank you Beverley and Carol.

Owner's reply: Thank you Vicky for your lovely review and I am glad your little dog appreciated his holiday treats.It would be lovely to welcome you again.

“Excellent accomodation, fantastically positioned for work and lesiure”

Reviewed 25 Nov 2013

With work I would normally stay in Hotels, but when booking the Cottage and upon arrival I was amazed at the value. On the kitchen table was a bottle of wine and some home made marmalade, a lovely touch. The cottage is so cosy and welcoming and it was so nice to able to bring along the family within the company budget. The cottage is brilliantly located for family activities and we cannot await to return. I strongly recommend booking here for value and a pleasant stay and we are looking forward to returning in the New Year.

Owner's reply: Thank you very much.It is a pleasure to offer an alternative to hotels for the weary business traveller
