My mother and I stayed in the twin room at Rectory Cottage early in September, and were delighted with the charm of this restored 17th century barn (the main part of the house is even older). The room itself was spacious and comfortable, and the setting is totally quiet and peaceful. Breakfasts were delicious, and we were pleased to have an opportunity to try traditional Welsh laverbread with scrambled eggs -- this was the only place where we saw it. Bryan and Angela are excellent hosts -- very knowledgeable about the area, sharing information about places to visit and scenic routes to drive. I'd happily stay here again, and would recommend it to anyone travelling in Wales.
