“Comfortable and cosy cottage with stunning views”

Reviewed 13 Nov 2013

Had a lovely week in Bod-Llawen. Cottage accommodated 5 of us very comfortably, and the fire and heaters kept it cosy and warm. Very well situated for Cardiff which was the reason for our stay, but we enjoyed some nice walks around the lanes and a good meal at the local pub! Excellent amenities all a short drive away. Wonderful views!
