Lovely cottage in a picturesque village

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a long weekend in June. The cottage was very clean with everything provided for cooking etc. The deck overlooking the river was a really nice place for a well earned drink after a long day walking. We had a good meal at one of the local pubs and also made use of the barbecue with supplies bought from the local shop.

Brilliant short break

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic property in a great location, house was lovely and clean with everything we needed even with the added touch of a pint of milk in the fridge so we could have a cup of tea on arrival.

Lovely to sit out in the sun on the patio in the evening and listen to the river flow behind, and the village was brilliant also, a couple of dog friendly pubs, a well stocked shop, ice cream parlour and a few other attractions. And some fab places to go for a walk and just marvel at the view.

Lyn was a perfect host and would definitely stay here again.

Everything we wanted, couldn't fault anything at all!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great long weekend here and it was perfect. The cottage is lovely, so clean, comfortable and well equipped. The terrace is a real treat.

The village is lovely too, lots of choices for eating and drinking, we could have happily stayed much longer and would love to come back one day.

Owner's Response: Thanks Heidi for the great review - and your kind words. When I took over Rhiwlas a few months ago, I made some alterations to make it as I would want if I stayed there myself and I'm pleased you enjoyed it.
