“I want to live here!”
Reviewed 9 September 2017 for a stay in September 2017

The booking was easy using the cottage.com site and I achieved the price advertised.
Before arriving they ask you to call the owner for information on the collection of keys and so that they have an approximate arrival time. Check in is after 3:30 pm on the day of arrival.
We arrived approximately 4pm and was met by Shaun. He then introduced us to his partner Angela. Both were very friendly and welcoming. Shaun has a very talented mother in law who bakes the Bara Brith cake (a truly moist, totally delicious and more-ish fruit style loaf cake) to welcome you to the cottage. This was accompanied with a bottle of Towy Valley Apple Juice brewed exclusively for the Maesydderwen Holiday cottages, both of which were equally tasty! For you tea lovers, they also provide a pint of milk for that first cuppa!
They showed us around the cottage and how to work the heaters etc....
Shaun then ran through the welcome information booklet, in which gives suggestions of places to eat and walks to go on. We then were shown the hot tub and how to operate it. They then left us to get settled and I went straight for the Bara Brith!
We stayed in Kite Cottage which is the last cottage in the row, (or the first depending on which way you look at it). The cottage is modern and is fresh and very clean! As you enter Kite Cottage, on the right is the shower room. This is neat but plenty roomy for one person. to the left is the bunk room. This has a wardrobe with drawers and a bedside table with drawers. Plenty big enough for the purpose of sleeping, and I had to drag Jack out to enjoy family time, he was more than happy to chill in the room. Then you enter the open space living area and kitchen. The lay out is great. There is plenty of room for 2 x 2 seater sofas, coffee table, dining table with 4 chairs. There is a TV on the wall and a free standing electric heater. Off to the left of that area is the double room with bed. This has plenty of storage space and has views out the rear of the property. Out side there is the hot tub, seating area and they can provide you with a BBQ, if you want to cook and eat alfresco. As it was a treat for my Birthday, I had no intention of cooking, so declined the offer of the BBQ.
The hot tub is a 4 seater. It is heated to 40 degrees and has massage jets in each of the tub like seats. There is also a waterfall feature and a mood changing light feature, or you can have it on steady of the colour of your choice. I went with my 14 year old son and 10 year old daughter. Children under 5 are not allowed to use a hot tub. There are safety instructions on the outside wall of the cottage, which are easy to understand. The owners provide plastic cups for use in the hot tub as, for health and safety reasons, glass is not allowed. My son is almost 6 ft (already), I'm 5'7 and my daughter is 4' 6 and there was plenty of room inside the hot tub. We loved the hot tub! It was a rainy few days, but that didn't put us off using the hot tub!! Fantastic!
The kitchen is fully equipped, so if you were stopping for a longer stay, which might include actually cooking something, you would have no problem here. Microwave, toaster, cooker....It has it all.
The heaters are electric, which work very well. there is a airer in the shower room for you to dry costumes on, as it was raining a lot, I used the heated towel rail in the shower room. You are not permitted to cover the heaters, again for your own safety. If items of clothing need drying, you are welcomed to use the on site laundry room.
Even though you are in a row of cottages, the outside area is very secluded and private. There is no curfew on the time of usage of the hot tub but they do ask that you are courteous to your neighbours. Of course!
The beds are comfortable and I slept very well.
Local amenities are a short drive away and we found an all you can eat Indian buffet restaurant in one town (around 25 minute drive). Here you will find the Tesco Extra too. In Llandeilo, you will find 'The Chippery' chip shop, an Indian and Chinese take away. There is also a co op here.....(I also tried the Spar,,,but that was a bit of a let down).
The location of the Cottage is great! It is secluded and getting a phone signal might prove a little difficult, but they have WIFI, and it works! Much to the happiness of my kids. They have a park area, which includes a hammock and a trampoline. It is close to days out, there are two castles within a few miles in both directions. We visited Dinefwr Castle, purely because I'm a member of the National Trust. If I was to go for a longer visit, I sure would visit the other attractions of the area. I enjoyed driving on the country roads and the views all around were spectacular.
Check out time is 10am on the day of leaving....that was the only downside....leaving!! I didn't want to go!
All in all, Kite cottage was welcoming, clean, comfortable, quiet, indulgent break for my birthday. A great find, which I will be visiting again! Thank you Shaun and Angela! xxx

“Lovely peaceful week away ”
Reviewed 1 July 2017 for a stay in July 2017

We stayed in wren cottage Angela and Sean welcomed us and took us around the cottage and most importantly showed us how to use the hot tub ! The cottage was very well equipped everything had been thought of fresh apple juice and bara brith in the welcome pack, milk in the fridge even sandwich boxes which came is use as we went walking most days . The location is brilliant and we went on all the walks detailed in the welcome folder and travelled to saundersfoot on a damp day for a lovely meal at coast. We spent every night in the hot tub after a days walking watching the woodpeckers on the bird feeders absolutely wonderful thank you

“Peaceful weekend away”
Reviewed 2 May 2017 for a stay in April 2017

Kite cottage was wonderful, like a home away from home. Everything you need is catered for including a great welcome pack of milk, homemade apple juice and a homemade welsh fruit loaf which was delicious. Complimentary wifi with great signal and tv in case you don't want to miss your favourite programs.
Lovely and clean bathroom and bedrooms with comfy beds to ensure a great nights sleep after a day of walking and taking in the beautiful scenery. Hot tub was great and thorough enjoyed by all the family. Kids play area with a giant trampoline which my 10 year old couldn't be dragged away from.
On arrival we were met by Shaun who showed us round and talked about the local walks etc, very friendly and helpful and even though the weather wasn't brilliant he supplied a bbq with coals so we could cook outside.
Overall a great place to have a few days away with the family, would definitely recommend and will hopefully return in the not to distant future.

“Second visit, even better than the first!”
Reviewed 26 January 2017 for a stay in January 2017

A much needed quiet break, with everything provided to rest and relax. So friendly and welcoming, have looked forward to the bara brith since our last visit nearly 18 months ago. The highlight was sitting under the amazing stars in the hot tub. The Brecons are a Dark Sky zone, and the stars are immense. Kitchen well equipped to cook for ourselves too. Can't wait for visit No.3.

“Lovely break ”
Reviewed 29 March 2016 for a stay in March 2016

We stayed in Kite Cottage over the Easter weekend, the owners are incredibly friendly and had baked us Bara Brith as a welcome treat. The cottage itself is spotless and well maintained with all the amenities that you could possibly need.The views from the cottage are lovely especially when you are relaxing in the hot tub! This is a fantastic little cottage with plenty to do near by. I especially recommend a walk to Carreg Cennen, beautiful Castle ruins ontop of a hill ( wear walking boots!) and also Pembroke Castle which is just over an hour away. All in all a wonderful relaxing break.

“The most relaxing, peaceful retreat.”
Reviewed 5 November 2015 for a stay in November 2015

Lovely, well equipped cottage, with the added bonus of a hot tub. The locagion is perfect for relaxing, and recharging your batteries. Plenty of wildlife to watch out of the window - saw blue tits, great tits, woodpeckers, chaffinches and a buzzard - not bad considering the weather was pretty wet. There is a lovely touch when you arrive, some local bara brith, and locally pressed apple juice, both of which were delicious. Made you feel very welcome indeed. If you are looking for a quiet getaway, this won't disappoint. Will definitely return. Thanks from Sam and Martin Miller.
