Our hosts were friendly, informative, and helpful. We spent most of the the weekend curled up in front of the fire with our books, a perfect relaxing stay that we would highly recommend."
"Brynglas is a lovely cottage in a quiet location with stunning views and has been refurbished to a high standard. It has a cosy living room with wood burner, a dining area perfect for family meals and playing board games, a well-equipped kitchen, nice bedrooms and comfortable beds. The owners made contact beforehand and during our stay to ensure all was well."
" Thank you for our lovely weekend in the most beautiful cottage and surroundings. We loved it so much that we didn't want to leave and had to have one last pot of tea in front of the fire before heading home. Love the interior of the cottage and it had everything we needed for our weekend stay. I am sure we will be back, hopefully in the warmer weather."
" We have had such a lovely and much needed break.
It is so peaceful and a beautiful place to relax.
We even managed four days with no rain!
Thank you for all the little touches and the Prosecco which was very much enjoyed on New Year's Eve.
We will be back."
"Brynglas is a lovely and spacious cottage. It has everything you are likely to need and is well-equiped with modern appliances and utensils. The cottage has a beautiful rural and very quiet setting. There are lots of walks nearby, but also lots of interesting places within driving distance. It is an ideal cottage and I would definitely recommend it."
"Thank you for providing such a beautiful cottage for our Christmas away!
We have loved absolutely everything about the place; the furnishings, the fire and the beautiful Christmas decorations.
The gifts you left for our little boy were incredibly thoughtful.
You made it a very memorable Christmas for us ."
