“Improvements Needed”
Reviewed 13 October 2013 for a stay in October 2013

The property was located in a lovely setting although it was extremely small and came with a few snags. For two days we had no hot water caused by a depleted oil tank this made life a little difficult for bathing and washing. It was impossible to sit outside and enjoy the good weather as mine host spent all day using a petrol strimmer to clear an overgrown area. Apologies were given but that doesn’t ease the problem when we had come away for a relaxing time.

The property was advertised as ‘aged friendly’ although not wheelchair accessible. We both have mobility problems and getting in and out of the bath was extremely difficult as no grab rails were provided. The lounge had just one sofa bed which was too low making it impossible to get up after sitting down. What is needed is a small high rise high back armchair. We came prepared with our own portable chair.

Apart from that the owners were very helpful and nice to know and we would guess a wonderful place to stay in normal circumstances.

We would like firstly to apologise to these guests for the problems they incurred during their stay with us, however we are saddened by the fact that they didn't talk to us directly about these problems when they were here which would have enabled us to have made their stay more restful / comfortable. They stayed a week Sat - Sat.
It is regretful that the boiler chose this time to breakdown, but actually they were only inconvenienced on one day and not two as stated. It was actually me who first drew the problem to their attention as I had hoped they hadn't been inconvenienced when I had found we had no hot water and I was assured they hadn't been. Then I kept them in the loop thereafter with regard to oil delivery and repair, with the unfortunate incidence of no hotwater just once during this period.
With regard to strimming - if we had only known they wanted to sit outside we would have changed our schedule around so that they could have done so. However they made no attempt to sit outside when we weren't strimming nor did they talk to us about this inconvenience on the many times we passed the time of day. I had apologised for the noise on the first day of clearing (Monday) and was assured by our guests that it wasn't a problem and they understood we had to do it. Monday was actually the worst day with only a couple of hours in the afternoon on Tues / Wed / Thurs. The area is our wildlife meadow, which we cut back each Autumn to keep any bramble and nettle under control and allow flowers to come through the following year. We are rewarded for our trouble with a host of wild flowers starting in January with snowdrops and gorse then a multitude of other bee / butterfly friendly plants following. This area is really important to us and this year in particular it has been a wonderful nectar cafe.
Yes we advertise as suitable for people with mobility problems because the annexe is completely on the flat and there are non slip tiles on the floor in the bathroom. The space makes it easy for people to get around. Again, if we had known the bath had been a problem to get in and out of then we could of either offered them the use of our downstairs walk in shower, but if that hadn't suited I could have made a trip to the mobility people in Carmarthen and hired bath aids. I must stress we are not unapproachable and we very much want our guests to have a comfortable stay. The annexe has 3 rooms - the bedroom and living / kitchen area both 12ft square and the bathroom 12 x 7. I agree the space is not vast, but the price we charge reflects this and the majority of our guests use it as a base to explore the surrounding welsh countryside. We do however take great pains to make it a home from home and have been complimented regularly about kitchen utensils, generous welcome pack and store cupboard items. Any space, however vast, would feel small if you sit in it for long periods of time and unfortunately these guests did spend a great deal of time sitting indoors. Carmarthenshire / Gower / Pembrokeshire all have wonderful places to visit, with cafes to just sit even if you have problems getting around, where you can admire the views, birds, wildlife or whatever takes your fancy.

“Lovely relaxing break”
Reviewed 21 May 2013 for a stay in April 2013

We spent a great week in this cosy cottage. It had everything we needed for a peaceful and relaxing break plus a thoughtful welcome pack. The grounds of the pumphouse are lovely and within minutes a dipper visited the river just outside. Cathy was very helpful with advice about the local area etc. It is a good centre for exploring that area of Wales with it's varied and beautiful scenery and walks. It was so nice to come home in the evenings to a warm cottage after some rather wet days!
Would visit again.

The rooms are very clean and tidy with all needs catered for.
We will be back many times more for sure.
