Ideal country location for large groups.
We booked both cottages for our family, to celebrate our Golden Wedding. We had a wonderful week. The bedrooms are all spacious and en-suite, with large comfortable beds. We made the most of the hot tub, sauna and games room and there are lovely walks straight from the cottages. Eryl couldn't do enough to help us.

Excellent holiday cottage in beautiful countryside
9 members of our family stayed in here and thoroughly enjoyed it. Having all 5 bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms was excellent as it meant nobody had to share. Eryl the owner came to meet us on arrival to make sure we were OK and if we had any problems to let him know. The cottage is set on a working farm with cows and sheep. We all made use of the hot tub and games room, an added bonus. The only issue we had was the level of cleanliness with regard to the cooker and kitchen bins. However, this wouldn't stop us booking again. Excellent cottage.

Very enjoyable stay but property could do with a bit of TLC
We rented the cottage for a 60th birthday party. 8 members of the family stayed and another eight joined us for the Sunday. The owner couldn't have been more helpful, even allowing us to use the kitchen in the adjoining property free of charge on the Sunday. The hot tub was a definite plus. Beds were very comfortable and we all enjoyed our stay. Views were tremendous. The cottage did show signs of hard use though. Couldn't lock the back door, the games room was unfinished and the sauna didn't work and various other minor niggles. It didn't detract from an excellent week though. We would stay again but would hope that the above would have been addressed by then.

The cottage was well furnished and had comfy beds & good quality linen, the temperature was perfect with under floor heating, and if needed a log burner. The kitchen had everything needed to entertain plus lots of country walks, to build up an appetite. The highlight for the family was the hot tub.

The cottage was everything we could have asked for. Very clean, comfortable and well equipped. We all thoroughly enjoyed our time at Maes and will definitely be booking again in the future.
