Cottage Review: Rhyd Y Gorlan is the best accommodation I have ever stayed in. Located in quiet valleys, very close to well connected roads, and the very friendly hosts make this a cottage I'd love to come back to visit. We (and the owners) got very unlucky though with some strange issue with the water, but it was very clear they tried their very best to resolve the problem. I'm sure that was just one off bad luck. Snowdonia is close to this area, and it is well located to travel from other parts of the UK at the same time.

Cottage Review: We stayed for two weeks, in this fantastic cottage, it really had the wow factor as soon as we came into the living room,cottage seemed a lot larger than in the photos, bedrooms all very large and the separate games room was fantastic for our teenagers.

Cottage set in very peaceful location, no planes or cars just the sounds of the stream and wildlife.

Cottage is in perfect location for walking holiday or biking, and the garage is perfect for storing the bikes or walking boots.

The cottage is only 5 minutes away from a small market town and there are a good number of pubs in walking or driving distance.

We found some wonderful beaches the closest being 30 minutes away.

The cottage owners were lovely and we could not ask for more.

Cottage Review: What a wonderful cottage with fantastic views and excellent facilities. The cottage was well appointed and had everything the whole family needed for a wonderful holiday. The games room was a big hit with our 8 year old and gave hours of entertainment for the whole family. The luxury of a fully equipped kitchen and the large bedrooms with en-suite facilities was a big hit with Mum! Well worth a visit!

Cottage Review: My parents, in-laws, husband & myself, stayed at this cottage in the first week of October last year. We stayed for 5 days and were bowled over by the size and features of the cottage considering how reasonable the rental was. The Pool table was the highlight. After a day of sightseeing the warmth of the cottage along with a few games of pool were the perfect way to wind down. The rural setting and greenery were an excellent treat to the eye. The owners were very nice especially when we had an issue with the water, they ensured it was addressed immediately. Would love to come back someday and would definitely recommend this place to my friends.

Cottage Review: Very comfortable cottage with all the mod cons necessary to be comfortable. Games room with a pool table and tv/dvd - brilliant if you have children. Masses of space and fantastic storage space for bikes/windsurfers/. . . . Nice walks off the door step. As quiet a location as you could wish for. Overall we were very happy with our stay and will be back if we decide to visit mid Wales again.
