The cottage was warm, cosy and great value for money. Well equipped and good location. Would definitely recommend.

“Lovely cottage with some downsides”

The slate miners cottage was, for the most part, a lovely place to stay. We didn't use the kitchen but the living room and grounds were very nice. The cottage was clean. Two suggestions for improvement; First parking is less than desirable, it needs to be cleaned up a bit. Second, the bedroom only had bunk beds that were not that comfortable. I would recommend the cottage with these reservations. The price was great.

“Great trip into nostalgia”

Keep your expectations on what this is. Its an old miners cottage with a wonderful old fashioned couch and great fire. Keep your mind on a coal range and a nice table and chairs outside outback. The environs are great- much to explore all around.

The place has 4 beds (2 bunks) and a couch for a king. So put your feet up, and listen to BBC recording of Green Vales or whatever and know you are in the very heart of Wales.

“Magic Days”

It was a good choice , a cozy little house set in a magnificent landscape . We are a couple who loves the countryside and the fact that we pass these days without television and the Internet ( by choice ) was like a cleansing of the soul . As the weather was in our favor we could walk through those hills and valleys always accompanied by the river , which made us remember our country .
Thank you David for allowing us to spend these days in a place so beautiful and magical.
