2nd visit
This is our second visit here. Again, wonderful cottage with amazing hosts. Joy and Rod can't do enough for you. The cottage is clean and tidy. Well stocked for anything you want to cook. We will be coming back. If you like home comforts such as hairdryer, coffee filter, cafeteria then this is all covered here. Please note: When you go out, you will need cash to pay for parking. Whereas we are use to paying on apps etc. Was a bit of a shock when we got somewhere and had no cash on us.

Stayed here for my husbands 60th birthday All I can say is excellent in every way. Joy and Roy were so welcoming and pleasant. They even decorated the house and baked him a birthday cake. Hot tub was excellent. Fab place for dogs. Would definitely recommend this place and certainly will be returning

Absolutely Stunning Cottage
We stayed here for a long weekend. Had an amazing time. The cottage is stunning and has everything you can think off. You literally just turn up with clothes and food. Everything else is there including robes, bath towels, tea towels and all the clean equipment. My little boy loved the games, jigsaw puzzles and colouring. We have already booked for our summer holiday next year.

A really wonderful relaxing holiday
My father, husband and I have just come back from a wonderful week staying in this barn conversion on a working farm and none of us wanted to leave I can tell you. Joy & Rod are both such lovely, friendly and kind people and honestly cannot do enough for you. The accommodation is so well equipped,?that you need not take much with you at all which is brilliant. The beds are extremely comfortable and the whole layout of the place is spacious and so clean. We walked in and were shown around by Joy, who made sure we knew exactly where everything was and how it worked. The welcome goodybag was such a lovely touch and a really nice start to our first evening there. We thoroughly enjoyed the fresh chicken eggs from their chickens with our morning breakfasts and evening omelettes. We were also privileged enough to try some duck eggs as well, which were just as lovely. Rod kindly introduced us to his animals, as I asked, which was one big plus of staying on a farm, We saw the baby calves and lambs as well as the ducks, chickens and friendly farm cats, which will welcome you at the back door each morning. Having the hot tub was so nice after you had been out for a day trip or a long walk. We would just sit back and relax our muscles which was a lovely end to each day. The underfloor heating that warms the whole place is really good, we were warm and snug the whole week we there and it was lovely under foot too. There are so many things about this property which are lovely, the quality of furniture, extremely well equipped kitchen and attention to detail right through is brilliant. There are many places to see around the area but I would recommend:- -Sculptureheaven, a really lovely little place to visit and their cakes and cordials are wonderful. -Cenarth falls just round the corner, you can enjoy a lunch & drink in the pub opposite or a nice ice cream from the little gift shop, while taking a walk down the side of the river listening to the water rumbling over the stones. -Cardigan coastal farm park is a great place to visit if you have children to see the farm animals but even for us, just to enjoy the coastal walk above and watch the Seals bobbing their heads up above the water and if you are lucky, a dolphin too. -Visit Caws Cenarth cheese farm and watch through windows into the factory as they make the cheese, separating the curds and whey and then by hand, putting the curds into the cheese moulds. Then walk across to the shop for some tastings, you can't help come away with bags of cheese, it's lovely. -The National Wool Museum just around the corner is quite interesting as well and worth a visit. We also visited a Goldmine, a Waterfall and a Coal mine, which were further afield but all really good too.

Back again
Just had our second holiday in this delightful luxury cottage. Still a perfect escape from the real world with internet just incase you need to keep in contact. Sitting in the hot tub whilst it was snowing was a great experience. clean and very well maintained this cottage is warm and you don't really need the fire but for effect. Thank you Joy and Rod for creating this great cottage.
