“Secluded Getaway with a difference”

Reviewed 12 Jan 2015

We wanted somewhere quiet and away from it all after a hectic year and St Mary's was exactly the right choice. The church has been extremely well renovated to provide comfortable accommodation within the constraints of planning - a fabulous job has been done still leaving the main part of the church untouched. We loved the acoustics and sat a couple of nights in the church listening to music. The Pen y Bont hotel across the road was warm and welcoming and the views were spectacular with plenty of walks on offer. On New Year's Eve we sat at the top of the Churchyard watching the fireworks across the lake - a really fabulous start to 2015. Thanks to Peter for his hospitality - especially trying to find us a mechanic! If you have been put off by the Eco Loo comments - which we very nearly were - don't be. I'm so glad we decided to experience St Mar's ourselves - Thank you for a lovely stay.

Owner's reply: Hello Both ..Thank you for your positive review and thanks for venturing to come so far to spend a special time here at St.Mary's ..I'm glad you weren't disappointed . It was wise to bring your bikes with you as there are some brilliant places to visit ... I'm pleased that New Years Eve was enjoyed ..the firework display courtesy of the Old Rectory, viewed from the Church , must have been quite a treat .. See you again one day maybe.. Pete

This was our 2nd visit to St Marys and we enjoyed it even more than the 1st time. Stayed over the Christmas period and loved the peace and quiet once again. Excellent walks with our dogs who just slept the whole time in front of the fire when they got back. We are synchronising our diaries to return again next year. Thank you once again Peter for allowing us to stay in such a lovely place.

Owner's reply: Thank you both for returning to St.Mary's and to choose us at Christmas time ... a very peaceful time at Talyllyn ..the chill of winter doesn't spoil the beauty of our valley..and indeed I think the walks are to be enjoyed even more with the knowledge of a return to the warmth of the Old Church and a promise of a welcome cuppa... I will look forward to seeing you again.. and here's wishing you a Very Happy New Year.. Pete

Owner's reply: Hello Both ...thanks for your kind review ...so glad that St.Mary's was upto your expectations ... I was concerned that one of your dogs took that leap of faith over the perimeter wall ,indeed it is quite a drop on the other side ....perhaps it was bath night and he took off like a bullet ..!! but seriously I will inform others in future about this issue .. Thanks again for visiting us . Regards Pete
