A wonderful magic place
Fantastic cottage, great location. Friendly, gracious and hospitable owners. Delicious cake upon arrival. Hot Tub was sublime. Cottage is worth every penny - it retains its railway heritage with a real quirky feel. Suggestions for improvements would be: a few more large cooking dishes - we like to cook but there wasn't really anything to say cook a lasagne or cottage pie. The cottage is very hot, the owners could save a penny or two just by adjusting the heating a fraction. Could do with a path over slate layer to the hot tub, just to protect feet for those without flip flops. Lastly, a king size bed rather than a double for those of us that are a little larger lol. Minor things really - but highly recommend this cottage to one and all. Would definitely go back in a heart beat. Enjoy.

What a wonderful set up nice little extras that you don't normally get. And a home made cake and best butter eggs and milk in the fridge nice touch very clean we will definitely be booking this again x

Lovely place to stay
We have had a great stay here and would definitely come back. It is conveniently place for everything you would need and want to do but you do need a car to get around. The cottage is very nicely decorated and I could of quite easily stayed for longer. My only complaint would be that it would be nice to have a bigger bed in the main bedroom as there is plenty of room for one(but that's just a personal complaint). The hot tub was great and I could just sit outside in the lovely garden listening to the river flow all day long,It was lovely.

Incredibly clean and well kept Home, the hot tub is well maintained. The area is quiet and relaxing, if you want a great chilled place to go, then highly recommend it. Only thing for me was the shower was a little temperamental, but that could be user issues.

Gorgeous! !!
Stayed here for a week and we loved it, even my son who is very vocal about places he stays in! Perfect in every way, very warm and cosy and like home from home. Not that everyone lives in an old train station!! Which added to the charm of this house. Dewi and carys, this place is a credit to your hard work and everything is fitted to perfection. Beds are so comfy, I always worry about it because I have an illness and if it's the wrong sort of bed I'm awake for a week! No probs here, so comfy. The hot tub was great if we could get into as my son took it over, he also took over the pool table in the signal box! Even pooch loved the place and slept every night near the back door and watched for anything that moved or flapped during the night. Very quite and sleepy place hard to imagine what it would have been like all those years ago. Could do with a guest book and also a stronger fan in the en suite as there's a lot of water that collects on the floor...this is by no way a criticism as it's definitely not a major issue but an afterthought. We love quirky places and this definitely is on my top 4 so far. Up the road is the Irish prison encampment with other history to and we love our history, go check it out its rather interesting and also there was once a distillery here to.
