“A Great escape :)”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 November 2013

Just returned from a fabulous break at Happy Donkey Hill.
We stayed with friends in Millers cottage and had friends staying in the rest of the accomodation. The Diary was a great place for us all to congregate.
You can chill out in the two available hot tubs, sip champagne and just totally unwind. We enjoyed a lively dinner, then trotted over to the games room for a table tennis tornament. There are even a few exercise machines and a sauna.
Katie and Andy are brilliant hosts, who make you feel extremely welcome.
The cottages are very comfy, extremely well equipped, and the views are amazing.
The donkeys, pigs, goats, dogs, cats and chickens a delight.
The lay out is great, you could easily go for a romantic get away or as we did, go with friends.
What more could you ask for a great escape?
Thank you Katie and Andy for your great hospitality.

Great balance of authentic Welsh farm with well decked out interiors and all mod cons. Owners were very helpful from the outset and certainly a place i would go back to every year. The Dairy is very good value and would cater for larger groups very well.

Room Tip: Choose the dairy for big groups.

Myself and my friend stayed at The Dairy for 10 nights with our dogs, three in total. My partner also visited for a couple of days.
The cottage was very well laid out, clean and welcoming. It very quickly became home from home for all of us.
Centrally located to most areas, we were able to visit a variety of locations throughout our visit. Kate and Andy were absolutely great, nothing was too much trouble, and Kate was very welcoming when we arrived.
Everything was really good with the location and we really didn't want to leave.
I am definitely wanting to go back and sit in that lovely hot tub after a long coastal walk.
I can't recommend this place enough, particularly if you have dogs, they are very dog friendly.

So pleased to hear you enjoyed your stay, its always good to see the dogs have a good time too, I like how they always 'guard' their own cottages even after a couple of days :)
Hope to see you back soon.

Have just spent a week at Happy Donkey Hill with my wife in Millers Cottage.
Absolutely fabulous location, and the standard of accommodation is the very best you can find. The hosts Katie and Andy were very helpful, and the facilities, hot tub, sauna and games room are just superb. Perfect location for visiting all parts of Wales, stunning views and only a mile from the local village. Would recommend this to anyone who is looking for the best.

Room Tip: If there are six to eight of you stay in the Dairy cottage, it is absolutely fabulous

A clean and comfy room with a tasty breakfast. Andy and Kate we're great fun and very welcoming.

The views are wonderful and we wished we'd had time for a longer stay.

If you're looking for a family-farmhouse feel, then this is the spot for you.

Just returned from a week in The Stables cottage, and what a wonderful week it was. Kate and Andy made us feel very welcome and showed us around all of the extensive facilities at Happy Donkey Hill on arrival. The cottage is decorated to a very high standard and is perfectly equipped to be a home-from-home. We found the kitchen in particular to be kitted out with everything you could possibly need and we cooked full meals on several evenings with ease.

The bedroom is large and airy, and we slept like logs in the huge, comfortable bed. As city-dwellers we found the peace and quiet completely wonderful! I took the opportunity to use the Japanese maple bath whilst listening to music in the bedroom and it was the most relaxing start to our holiday.

The setting is gorgeous with stunning views and we used the hot tub twice...lots of fun and although we were lucky with the weather we think it would be amazing to be in the hot tub when it is pouring with rain! We went for a walk around Llandysul and my husband went for a run in the local area too. We really enjoyed saying hello to all the donkeys and especially as a foal had been born the day before our arrival.

I would also recommend getting some fresh farm eggs - we had a box of six for breakfast on our last day...delicious! Other tips would be to check out The Daffodil in Penrhiwllan. We went for dinner on my birthday and the food was amazing, a true gastro-pub! We loved it so much we went back (on Kate's recommendation) for their mid-week deal of 2 courses for £14 each.

Also, the WIFI was brilliant. As a young couple we've been frustrated in the past with lack of wifi in places we've stayed. The connection in the cottage was better than we have at home!! Although we didn't end up having the time to go in the gym or sauna it was well equipped and we did enjoy a game or two of table tennis!

Thank you for a lovely stay. :)

Room Tip: The Stables is perfect for couples.
