"Excellent accommodation ,everything we wanted and more. Highly recommended and value for money. Thanks for the welcome and looking after us, pony riding on the beach was a truly amazing experience. This is our 9th visit to the farm, and there is something new every year." Meg and Mark, Stoke on Trent. 2013

"Good, clean accommodation, home from home, everything as stated in advert. Eifionydd cottage exceeded its expectations. Swimming pool was fantastic, kept everyone occupied in the wet weather.

We only stayed for a short break, 4 nights, but enjoyed our stay immensely. The kids loved the pool, but the hot tub needs fixing.
