Hiraeth Cottage
I visited Hiraeth with friends for a weekend. It had a perfect location with great views. The house was a good size with great space outside and inside. Had a wonderful time at this place however a few bad things. No WiFi. No service inside the house. If you want to contact the outside world you will have to leave the house, which can be a little frustrating in the 21st century. Also the overall hygiene of the accommodation could be improved however for some people it may seem satisfactory. Overall I had a great stay with great friends but I probably won?t return in a hurry.

The cottage is a stunning conversion and sits with spectacular views over the valley. The woodland walks, dark night skies and wildlife were exactly what we we were hoping for.
Mr Herley

The homely feel to Hiraeth is fantastic and there is the added bonus of the 'sports barn' too. We have been there twice and have recommended it to many friends. The remote location enables you to disconnect from the world. Excellent property!

In a fantastic location with beautiful scenery. The house itself was perfect, it had wonderful decor and was very spacious. The underfloor heating was exceptional. I would highly recommend this property to anyone, especially families!
Mr Billing

This was a fantastic property and a weekend was just not long enough. The cottage was a very high standard with great workmanship throughout. It is in a lovely location with fantastic views. Plenty of lovely walks from the cottage and others only a short drive away. The owners were very helpful. We would really like to return to this cottage again in the future.
