All ok
The cottage is situated behind Wrights and there is ample parking. The cottage itself is overall ok. There are towels provided but only one per person per week. Beds are ok the room with the shower although has a wardrobe there is no hanging pole, so you cant use coat hangers! There are shelves....the cleanliness is ok but my wife did clean a bit. Its a comfy house for 4 maximum. All in all it was ok.

Such a shame as it wouldn't take much to make this cottage superb. We stayed with our friends and it appealed to us because of the layout of 2 double bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. The main faults were : no opening window/door in the lounge, which would have been a nightmare in the summer. Large floor to ceiling window in the main bathroom also broken and wouldn't open, also had no blind so no privacy at night and the extractor fan was broken. No proper light in the other bathroom just a lighted mirror. Lots of the bulbs were blown and none of the fancy lighting in the kitchen was working. No bath mats. The garden was not as described and the cottage was not as clean as it should be. All of these things could be easily sorted but the main concern is that the windows and doors that are faulty present a real danger in case of fire. The cottage was great for our Labrador and the village was lovely with a nice field by the village hall where we could let the dog run off lead. We had a good meal at the Emlyn Arms one evening too. Steak and sweet for ?10. I was surprised to note that the problem with the windows and doors was also noted by a reviewer in 2014 and that nothing has been done about it. I would be reluctant to book with Sykes again because of this.

Great little cottage
A book about the history of Led Zepplin in the bathroom, a good start. Clean comfortable and in a great location with views from the garden. Bedrooms really comfortable both with en-suite, great shower in one bedroom large bath in the other (no Jacuzzi). Really comfy sitting room with Sky TV on large screen. Well equipped modern kitchen. Next door to the cottage is a very good restaurant, deli that you have to try. All in all really enjoyable will be back. Steve

Beautiful little cottage in a wonderfully quiet part of the Welsh countryside. Very well equipped with all you could need away from home.
