5th visit in four years
I believe my title says it all. Having come back to Yr Hen Llaethdy five times in four years we clearly love this slice of Welsh heaven. Joy and Rod are extremely welcoming, the little personal touches to the cottage make the stay. The gift bag of sweets, jams and little presents for our children was perfect. We had a Chinese from the Super Garden in town, which was amazing and a must have. We visited Pen Y Bryn beach twice and highly recommend it. We will most definitely be returning. Massive thumbs up to Joy and Rod for all their hard work they put in to make Yr Hen Llaethdy a home from home.

This fantastic cottage on a working farm was sheer bliss, I?ve stayed in other cottages which were not a patch on this one and has left me with a very high benchmark for any I hire in the future. The property is so well equipped everything you could want for all ages and all weathers I was happy just staying around the cottage . Though it?s a great base for exploring the surrounding countryside and coastal area . Being here in the excellent weather we have just had was just perfect but this is a cottage for any season. The beds were so comfortable I slept so well every single night The owners are extremely welcoming and helpful and their attention to detail really shines through to give an exceptional opportunity for a superb holiday

Fantastic Cosy Cottage
What a beautiful cottage! We felt spoilt the moment we stepped through the door. Joy and Rod had left a beautiful Christmas hamper and presents for our children. The cottage is fully equipped, with everything above and beyond what you would expect. A lovely area to stay in, lots of lovely beaches to explore.

Wonderful piece of Welsh Gold
Amazing well equipped comfortable cottage with hot tub, private garden and log fire. Situated on a farm with animals next door and across the drive kids will love this place as well as parents. The private garden with hot tub and seating undercover (lots of knee rugs for cooler evening) provides a great space to relax and eat in all weathers. The cottage has good underfloor heating with thermostats in each room for comfort. A large bathroom with whirlpool bath and large double shower cubicle. I suggest you will return from this holiday feeling your kitchen is just not up to scratch as there is every gadget and gizmo imaginable. Joy and Rod provide a welcome pack which exceeds all expectations (I am now addicted to Tregroes chocolate waffle biscuits.). The furnishings and comfort of this cottage is well above average and nothing is too much trouble for the owners. My husband and i would describe this cottage as rare and exquisite like Welsh Gold.
