“Lovely”
Reviewed 19 April 2014 for a stay in April 2014

Thoroughly enjoyed our few days wished we could have stayed longer. So relaxing and peaceful at the cottage and all home comforts for us and our baby. Definitely visit again. Convenient location for Aberystwyth and stunning views.

THANK YOU - DIOLCH O GALON - Delighted to have such a lovely little family staying at the cottage and taking such interest in our plans and ideas for finishing another little cottage. The little baby boy was adorable and contented and I hope one day to see him running in our meadow or paddling in the stream!

“Perfect! Beautiful accommodation in a beautiful setting!”
Reviewed 17 April 2014 for a stay in April 2014

Thank you for making our short stay so lovely. Doleos Cottage is perfect in every way - beautifully furnished throughout to a high spec in a beautiful setting. My son (aged 7) was in his element running up to the top of the meadow every morning (with our little dog) where you have a lovely view of the sea at the top.

Marilyn was more than helpful and even had a lovely welcome pack for us when we arrived, of tea, coffee break, milk, jam and more!!

I can not recommend this accommodation enough and we will definitely be coming back to stay - I didn't want to come home!!

Lovely lovely lovely!!

Massive THANK YOU - I'm absolutely chuffed to bits that my lovely, charming visitors enjoyed staying at my cottage. It's what spurs me on and knowing they didn't want to leave - well fantastic! I did enjoy my little run up to the top of the meadow with the youngster and his extremely energetic pup! Not bad for an out of condition biddy! I look forward in particular to their return.

We spent 4 nights at this lovely cottage. It felt very secluded but was only 5 minutes drive from Aberystwyth. It was very clean, comfortable and well equipped. The beds were very comfortable and there was a good shower. The meadow at the back was perfect for our dog to run around freely. The location was stunning and looking out on the fields from the sitting room we really felt we were getting away from it all. The owners gave us a very warm welcome.

THANK YOU. It was lovely to see my charming young visitors, with their very excited dog, stroll through the meadow. The view of the sea from the top gate is a magnet for me and I escape up there for my time out. It's a lovely spot for a picnic too so I hope when my visitors 'return soon' the weather will be sunny and hot so they may enjoy a picnic by the meadow gate. So very satisfying to have visitors that share our vision for our amazing little place.

“A delightful holiday cottage!”
Reviewed 25 February 2014 for a stay in February 2014

What a find! A lovely and well equipped clean cottage, a short drive away to the lovely coastal town of Aberystwyth. We had such a warm welcome and were delighted with our welcome pack of goodies which the owner had carefully chosen, bearing in mind we had 3 little ones with us. We will definitely return...

“Best Ever”
Reviewed 28 September 2013 for a stay in September 2013

Excellent new property, clean, spacious and well equipped. The owner was incredibly helpful and provided extras such as bread, milk, coffee, tea, fruit, vegetables, orange juice and breakfast cereals all waiting when we arrived.

Directions to property were clear and correct. The surroundings were beautiful and quiet and we had a most restful and enjoyable stay. We would definitely stay there again and would recommend it.

A car is needed as it just outside of Aberystwyth but only a five minute drive into town.

THANK YOU so much for making my day! Feeling exhausted after an extremely busy summer of letting I was delighted to read such lovely, considerate and generous comments. I never thought when I started letting the immense pleasure I would get from meeting such nice people. Sharing this glorious place with them was so satisfying.

“Fabulous cottage. Pictures do not do it justice.”
Reviewed 13 September 2013 for a stay in August 2013

A very lovely cottage just five minutes drive from the centre of Aberystwyth, yet in an extremely peaceful and private location. The cottage is extremely well equipped, and is decorated very nicely; the photographs do not do it justice. The only thing missing was a full length mirror (which is just me being fussy).
Nearby attractions include the National Park which has three excellent mountain bike trails and offers some lovely walks, and the rare red kites are fed at 3pm daily, which is an interesting sight. The centre of Aberystwyth is only 5 minutes away, with its lovely beach, also the Rheidol valley, steam train, butterfly house.. The list goes on.
