Nestled in the lovely Carmarthenshire countryside, the cottage is very clean and cozy, and the welcome package much appreciated. The kitchen is truly well equipped - not just a microwave and some cutlery - so cooking meals was possible;... more

Management response:

Thank you both, we really enjoyed having you to stay and appreciate the comments about the kitchen - we try very hard to make the cottage a home from home and it is lovely when we get positive feedback. more

As nature lovers, we were so glad we went to The Old Forge Pumphouse as it is next to a river with kingfishers, dippers and otters. We saw bullfinches and... more

Management response:

Thank you so much - we are so pleased you enjoyed your stay and enjoyed the wildlife so much. more
