From the moment we stepped inside this beautiful house, we felt at home. The super well equipped kitchen was a joy to cook in, and with the open plan kitchen/living area, it was was a great social space. Super comfy beds, were really welcome after an awesome day walking up Cadir Idris. The patio was lovely to sit out and enjoy the surrounding countryside.
Definitely one to return to.

Amazing cottage in the middle of the forest. Very peaceful. Cosy and warm, and equipped with everything you could possibly need.
Great walks and rides from the front door, and your own outdoor wild swim pool about a mile away too…

May we just say that the towel rail in the en-suite bathroom can actually be turned on when the heating is off. Perhaps we don’t make this obvious, but the switch over the door into the bathroom can be used to electrically heat the towel rail. The reason we don’t advertise this is that it is quite rare for the temperatures to be so high that the heating never comes on. If future guests do use the electrical heat into the bathroom radiator, please do turn the switch off on leaving.
Thank you very much for the other nice comments.

Thankyou for a lovely stay at your house. We were also pleasantly surprised at how much bigger the house was compared to what we expected. There seems to have been alot of thought in providing everything needed to make our stay comfortable and to a high standard. We read the manual and found the extra foldable red chairs thanks but in the end used the bench for the kids and the chairs that were at the table and in one of the rooms (more comfy at table height).
It would be great if there was space to park bikes out of the rain – we did so under the eaves but as we had 6 bikes this didn’t keep all of them dry and if out in wet for the week it wouldn’t have been great. Luckily we had decent weather. The tranquility of the house location was lovely and being able to get onto the bike / walking tracks so easily was fabulous.
One improvement could be to ensure the ensuite bathroom radiator can be overidden to dry off towels. That bathroom seemed to hold the moisture quite a bit even with windows open to air.
Lovely to see the setup for heating and insulation efficiency, well done. Great to see the original house renovated and being merged with a quality extension. The layout and style works very well.

We had a lovely break as usual at this cottage. Beautiful surroundings. The cottage is very well equipped – lots of lovely kitchen ware that is much appreciated! The cottage itself is very comfortable, clean and tastefully decorated set in peaceful surroundings. We will definitely be booking again!
(One little aside that you might like to pass onto the owners was that we noticed a spot of damp on the skirting board in the master bedroom below the window on the LHS).

What a great house! Lovely conversion, great location in such a beautiful forest – it made our family mountain biking weekend a success! We’ll definitely be back.

Hello Lisa, I’m very glad you enjoyed your stay at the house. We obviously need to make clearer that there are two foldaway chairs in the store. Apologies. But, in addition, we are adding another chair in early October that can be moved from one the bedrooms to the main room. I hope you are able to return. Chris

Excellent little hide away and very well equipped kitchen.
We loved everything about it, isolated and very tranquil. Another lounge type chair would be beneficial we think as settee really only seats 2 and with 3 other single chairs, one person is really left sitting at the dinning table if you take 6 adults.
Will definitely be returning

Dear Ms Mcauley,
Many apologies for the chair, which was broken by the previous tenant. I am very sorry that we weren’t able to get a replacement delivered on time. However the house now has a new comfortable armchair. We do advertise the house as suitable for six adults and two children and I believe the seating is properly sufficient for this number.
We have checked the high chair and it is working well. Perhaps the catch under the table was not engaged? We will leave a note to remind people.
Ms Mcauley mentions dust in the corners of the rooms. We schedule five hours cleaning between guests and this is usually entirely sufficient to keep the house spic and span, as other guests from DIoni have noted.

Stunning location up in forest.
Cottage lovely and very high standard well equipped.
However we had problem with lounge seating only 2/3 seater settee in lounge and chair however the chair has completely collapsed and you could not sit on it, so we used 3 other cane seats but still Not enough adequate Comfortable seating for 8 adults in evening.
Not sure if anyone else had told owner so we thought it should be mentioned.
Likewise we had 9 month old with us and the high chair is not safe it leans forward and we could not use again maybe no one has mentioned to owner. Whom lm sure will organise a knew one.
Also the cleanliness was ok but cleaners have not moved or lifted anything in house to clean under corners etc all dirty and fluffy. If they were my cleaners they need pulling up. Has built up in house.
Only small things we all had a wonderful weeks holiday in cottage and would deifinately return if above comments acted upon.
