In a hole in the ground there lived a hobbit. Not a nasty, dirty, wet hole, filled with the ends of worms and an oozy smell, nor yet a dry, bare, sandy hole with nothing in it to sit down on or to eat: it was a hobbit-hole and that means comfort.
I can't believe that we've had the Hobbit House open for over a year now! Thank you so much to everyone that has stayed and left such lovely reviews. Yes it's a small space but everyone seems to have enjoyed staying. We've certainly enjoyed it ourselves a couple of times (well we have t test it don't we!) Nowhere else can you stay with a view like this from your comfortable bed! We are only 15 minutes from Hay on Wye and the perfect place to stay during the Hay festival. The Hobbit House has a wood-fired cooker so that you can cook your own meals and there is running water just outside. A large sofabed folds out to a full-sized double bed with a deep comfortable mattress. All bedding etc provided. Dinner and breakfast can be provided at extra cost - how about a nice hearty stew in a slow-cooker ready for you to arrive, with fresh bread warming in the Hobbit House's wood-fired oven? We have a number of great walks starting from the doorstep and a rural pub over the road. (please note that the pub is generally only open at weekends)
A Hobbit House in the middle of the beautiful Brecon Beacons. I think that's pretty unique don't you?!
  • We had a lovely time staying in the hobbit hole! The views were so pretty and it's was so cosy inside with the little fire, I've already recommended to lots of my friends and customers and would definitely stay again, thank you!

  • Absolutely great stay! Fantastic location and a very nice host.

  • Had a great nights stay in this unique glamping experience. Tim was really friendly and made an amazing breakfast, with homemade bread. Lovely weekend. Thanks

  • Tin and his wife were very pleasant and helpful. They gave us good recommendations for hikes and made sure that we had enough wood for the stove in the hobbit house. The meals were exceptional: homemade apricot bread and a stack of pancakes layered with yogurt, honey and fruit for breakfast; and for dinner there was a slow cooker of stew and a loaf of homemade bread waiting for us in the hobbit house when we returned from our hike. The hobbit house was great. They provide an ample supply of blankets and the stove keeps the inside warm. There are also outlets and a tiny fridge inside, so the house was nearly self contained (definitely clamping). The location is awesome. We were right across the street from the starting point for a number of hiking routes, and it is only 3 miles to Talgarth (which took us about an hour to reach on foot). The location is close to Tretower Castle and Crickhowell Castle by car or taxi. The reservation process was easy and Tin communicates very well. Thanks

  • We had a fantastic stay at the Hobbit house. It is really cosy and has amazing views. Arrival was very easy and Tin provided excellent details beforehand. Definitely recommend the Hobbit house for anyone looking for a secluded getaway.

  • Very cute place, a wood fire/stove was in the hobbit house but we only needed it for cooking as it was plenty warm. Lovely and clean, amazing scenery, quiet except for a few noisy sheep! A short drive to lots of cute shops and lovely pubs Would definitely stay again

  • Tin was welcoming and friendly. The hobbit house really is quite special. Although we found somewhere great in the evening in a local towel we wished we had stayed in and watched the stars and enjoyed the wood burner. We had pancakes in the kitchen that tin cooked for breakfast and they were tasty. This was a great experience and we thank Tin and Rosie for sharing their part of the world with us if only for 1 night. (We want to go back)

  • Cindy and I had a wonderful stay at the Hobbit House provided by superb hosts Tin and Rosie. It was ever so cosy with log burning stove and comfortable double sofa bed with doors opening out to a dreamy view. The location was quiet, peaceful, beautiful with exciting walks and scenery. Highly recommended and would love to stay again in future. Thank you.

    Welcome to my gorgeous one bed miner's cottage. Set in the heart of Snowdonia it has views across Angelsey and the Irish Sea. The inside is deceptively spacious, and is ideal for a couple or small family who want to get away from it all.
    Welcome to my gorgeous one bed miner's cottage. Set in the heart of Snowdonia it has views across Angelsey and the Irish Sea. The inside is deceptively spacious, and is ideal for a couple or small family who want to get away from it all. Recently rebuilt 8 years ago to a high standard this cottage features all mod cons, double glazing, full central heating, and unlike most stone Welsh cottages in the area it's warm, light, and dry! The lounge and kitchen are open plan, with a raised ceiling into the roofline. The main feature of the lounge is the original stone fireplace that defines that cottage feel. A fully equipped kitchen with double electric oven, hob,fridge and Microwave. The bedroom and bathroom are entered from an adjoining doorway. The bedroom has a double bed, a wardrobe and cupboards for your use. The bathroom has a shower/bath combination. The front of the house overlooks miles of open countryside and villages, all the way across to Hollyhead on Angelsey some 25 miles away. The Irish Sea can be seen from the bench seat in the front garden. ` To the rear of the property is a small shed where guests can store their bikes and on the flat roof there is a large decked area for enjoying the sunshine. Easy road side parking to the front of the property, a key will be inside a keysafe near the front door. I often work away so it would be unusual to see me, but my friendly neighbours will be able to help with any enquires. I am often in the area at weekends. Fell free to contact me at any time with any questions, and I'll be more than happy to help. Being set in Snowdonia it has so much to offer the visitor. The house itself is set high on a hill side. Simply standing outside gives you amazing views, the sun sets in front of the house in the summer months so it's not unusual to see all the neighbours sat outside in the evening, with a bbq and a drink. Walking out of the front door brings you immediately into the mountains. You are spoilt for choice for things to do, walking, climbing, mountain biking, fishing, photography, great places to eat, the list goes on and on. Nearby attractions are the Dinorwic Slate Quarries, these were at one time one of the largest quarries in the world, these are just a mile away, great for walking, biking and exploration. The nearby village of Llanberis is a mecca for walkers and climbers alike, with easy access to Snowdon and it's Mountain Railway, and also from there into the famous Lllanberis Pass and Ogwen Valleys. Zip World, is a few minutes drive away, this is the longest zip wire in the Northern Hemisphere and is over a mile long. Then there is Angelsey, with it's stunning scenery and attractions there is plenty for everyone, it's beaches are exceptional. Easy access by car to all areas, walking and cycling is a pleasure from here too. Buses run from outside the house to Bangor and Caernarfon, but having a car would make for an easier trip. A the cottage is in Snowdonia, the mountains are in close proximity to the sea so the weather here has it's own micro climate. Always be prepared for every weather and you'll be fine.

  • We took the road to John's place that he recommends and it was a beautiful drive through the Welsh countryside. His place is in an amazing location that you might not get to see if you didn't book through him. The cottage was just like the pictures. Very cosy, clean and good amenities. We went hiking in Snowdonia which was absolutely spectacular and I'm sure will be a highlight of our Europe trip. We wandered around the village as well, very beautiful. The restaurants john recommended were great. Definitely recommend to stay here.

  • John's quarryman's cottage was close to a dream. All was very nice, a beautiful drive through the Welsh mountains. Although we missed personal contact with him a little bit, we had a perfect stay. Highly recommended!

  • Gorgeous cosy cottage perfect for a couple's getaway. The location is fantastic, offering amazing views as soon as you step out of the cottage. Easy to get to shops and amenities and there are endless opportunities for those that love to walk/hike/climb in the surrounding area. Inside the cottage is very cosy and we loved the wood burning fire. Perfect sized kitchen with everything you need if you want to cook. The bed was very comfy and enjoyed taking a hot bath after a long day of walking. Would definitely recommend to anyone!

  • The cottage is in an ideal location for Snowdon and the nearby Dinorwic slate quarry, both of which were great places to visit. John sent us a really helpful and comprehensive list of information before we arrived which we used to plan our itinerary - in particular the restaurants he suggested were well picked. The cottage is a good size for a couple, and we really enjoyed our stay here. Thanks!

  • We had a lovely stay at John's cottage. The area is beautiful and the cottage is comfortable, clean and very nicely laid out.

  • We had a lovely four night stay at John's place. It was perfectly located for climbing Snowdon as well as other local activities such as ZipWorld and the Slate Quarry. John's cottage was a perfect base for us just outside Llanberis which after hiking all day was just what we needed so thank you John!

  • Lovely cottage on the hillside, with great views. Great location for access to Snowdon, took us about 20 minutes to drive there. Good location to other points of interest too! Cottage was clean & John provided a list of instructions to get into the property. Also a really good list of recommendations which we used during our stay! I'd definitely recommend if you're looking to climb Snowdon or fancy a few quiet days away in beautiful Wales.

  • A great space for two. Really cosy and warm, the wood burner made it more special. There's a well equipped kitchen. All very clean and tidy. Quiet comfy bedroom at the rear of the house. The pre-arrival instructions and helpful information were very clear. The views spectacular. Good internet connection. I messaged John with a quick question whilst we were there and he answered within a few minutes. Would recommend and use again.

    The cabin is located in stunning scenery, nestled midway between Carningli Mountain, Ty-Canol ancient oak woodland & the foothills of the Preselis & only 3 miles from the sea. With an outdoor hot tub, it's easy to kick back and relax.
    Our fully insulated wooden cabin is just a couple of miles from Newport, Pembrokeshire. The cabin perches on the top of one of a series of 3 nearby mounds (the origin of which is still unclear, but you can see the other two from the garden) and over looks stunning scenery. The building is sunny, warm, light and airy, with a woodburning stove for when the weather is cooler. The water is heated by solar panels and a log boiler down in the main house. The newly installed hotub and garden has views stretching for miles and you can sit back and enjoy incredible sunsets behind carningli mountain. Guests and friends often tell us that they have not slept and relaxed so well for a long time. Maybe it's because there are very few places left in Britain where you cannot hear the hum of a busy road or the sound of vehicles every few minutes. Here at the cosy Cabin, the small lanes are extremely quiet and you are completely surrounded by nature. All around you are hills, mountains, wooded valleys, streams and great mature oaks, ash and sycamore. Execpt for the neighbouring farm buildings, you could easily believe that you are tens if not hundreds of miles from civilisation, yet just over the side of Carningli (the rocky mountain you can see from the garden) and only 3 miles away is the small bustling town of Newport. Newport is a tiny town that has an incredible variety of attractions including farmers market (on Mondays), award winning cafes, pubs and restaurants, local shops and art gallery and of course the sea with a beautiful sandy beach, cliff walks and sanddunes. Before going into more detail I need to be clear on the location and type of property this is. The cabin has a compost loo which is a dry system that works without a flush, where the waste is converted into fertile soil for the apple trees. The loo does not smell bad in case you were wondering, but is not the same as a flush toilet. Access to the cabin involves some steep steps and an uneven path with some leaves and loose small stones. It is not a modern set-up with a tarmac driveway with all the latest mod-cons (unless you're talking super comfortable beds, cooking, showering and hotub!) The best thing to do before booking is read through a number of reviews as well as much of the description as possible to get a feel for the place to make sure it's right for you. The cabin is open plan with a large curtain to separate the downstairs bedroom. There is a double bed downstairs and a double mattress upstairs, and a travel cot if needed. We only make up the downstairs bed when there is one person or a couple staying, but if you'd prefer to sleep upstairs, just let us know before your stay. There is a fantastic shower and a compost toilet. The garden has chairs and there is a veranda for undercover outside dining. The outdoor electric hot tub is partly powered by the solar panels in the garden (as is the whole cabin), and it is hot and ready to use all the time. While we do provide a set of towels (one bath towel and one hand towel per guest), it might be an idea to bring an extra towel for the hot tub, and maybe a dressing gown. Some slip on shoes would also be useful for going between the cabin and the hot tub. As we are out in the sticks, mobile service is intermittent, but most networks can get signal somewhere, even if it means a short walk into the field or up the road. There is no landline or internet in the cabin. If you really do need to go online (for work for example) then you could use the wifi in the house, but please check before booking. We have been toying with the idea of getting the cabin connected, however, every single guest (even those that were expecting wifi) have told us at the end of their stay they were so happy not be distracted by their mobile phones, email etc. And that their experience was so much richer for it that we should definitely not introduce it... being cut off from social media addiction for even just a few days is incredibly relaxing and refreshing and is so rare these days. It is easy to forget how good for the mind and getting rid of stress the experience of spending quality time together, reading, playing games, talking and being able to completely relax is. So if you are worried about off screen for a few days, don't be as it really does make for a fantastic experience. Many of pubs etc in newport do have free wifi if you do need to get online. The cabin is self catering, and the kitchen is fully equipped, with a fridge, kettle, toaster and a new induction cooker and Samsung oven which are super efficient and a pleasure to use (when its not rented we go up and use the oven as it is far better then ours!). Some basics are provided, like salt, pepper, some herbs and spices and cooking oil. There will be complimentary tea and coffee (ground, for the caffetiere). There is no washing machine, but I would be happy to do a wash for you at a cost of £2.50 a load. There is no dryer, but there is a drying line outside the cabin, and a launderette in Newport. Bedding and bathroom towels are provided. An organic veg and fruit box can be pre-ordered for delivery if you are here on a Monday. There are local yoga sessions (1 mile away), as well as a host of other types of other activities close at hand. Please ask for details.ì
    North Pembrokeshire is much quieter than the south and has a unique combination of rocky outcrops, stunning beaches and coastal path, wooded valleys and enclaves, friendly neighbours and a night sky with hardly any light pollution, resulting in a fantastic the view of the stars. The more well-known stunning beaches of Newport, Poppit and Whitesands are interspersed with little gems that are much quieter and actually often much more beautiful such as Cwm Yr Eglwys only a few miles away. The neighbourhood is a mix of traditional welsh farmers, smallholdings and people that have chosen a sustainable path and live off the land (this includes communities such as Lamas and Brithdier as well as groups of families that share giant vegetable growing plots and a cow where each household takes a turn at milking!), stone farmhouses and cottages interspersed with hobbit style dwellings and homes made from natural materials. The Gwaun Valley that starts at our property is a sight in itself. Its vast densely wooded sides leads down to a welsh community that has culturally changed very little for centuries. They still celebrate their own new year, have a primary school still running strong with only 27 pupils in total and have a pub that is old as they come and only serve beer from jugs. There are plenty of beautiful sights and places of interest within walking distance along beautiful winding quiet backroads. The large organically farmed field next door with the large oak tree atop an ancient mound is ours and provides a stunning short walk or sports/activity ground (we have football nets to borrow), depending on the livestock! Ty canol woods (less than 1 mile away) is home to an ancient stunted oak woodland, rocky outcrops and carpeted in mosses and lichens, it is like walking into a fairytale book. The woods lead on to the larger rocky outcrops of Carnau meibion Owen which looks out to the preseli hills and also the ancient burial chamber of Pentre Ifan. The heather strewn slopes of Carningli mountain (less than 1 mile away) are well worth a climb, the views from on top are spectacular. Newport has a stunning large sandy beach with dunes and is great for swimming. The town of Newport has become famous for its array of great cafes, restaurants and shops including a wholefood shop, butchers, hardware store, fishmongers (specialising in locally caught fish), pharmacy, newsagents, craft collective, antique centre, Spar and a local produce market on a Monday morning. Our closest neighbours (300 yards ish), Simon and Kerry at Tyriet farm have opened a micro brewery (Bluestone brewing co.), and you can drop in and pick up a bottle or three of their finest ales.
  • Maya greeted us from he front door of the beautiful church that the family rebuilt and remodeled. She then showed us up the private path to the cabin. The cabin is totally out of the way of the house and you really do feel like you are secluded. After a quick tour and being shown how to use the amazing wood burning heater and hot tub and amazing modern hob and oven (that I now want at home) we spent our time getting the hot tub warm and playing board games. My fiancee and I both have stressful lives and this place is wonderful to be totally disconnected, no phone signal, no wifi and no connections to the outside world. Just beautiful scenery and quiet. Not to mention the very handy brewery less than a 5 min walk from the house! Very handy! You are no more than a 15 min drive from Newport to head to the beach or to grab some supplies, the only shop we could find is a small Spar so I would take supplies with you and top up if you need too. There are walking tracks from every direction and Maya has left instructions in the house as to how to get to them, also where is best to eat or drink. At night, there isnt a sound, its so quiet and so peaceful. Sitting in the hot tub with a glass of champagne looking at the stars was a wonderful experience. Some people have struggled with the hot tub (reading the guest book) however I don't understand how they struggled. Start the fire, wait and once you hear it bubbling away you just keep feeding it A LITTLE! As a typical man, I kept the fire going once it was warm, this made it very very hot! So we had to leave it to cool down. Once you find the balance its amazing. The house is built to be very eco friendly, everything about the design has taken that into consideration, if you have a good fire in the heater then you can warm the cabin for 2 or 3 days, insulation is amazing. The hot water is done with solar panels and comes from the main house so it takes a bit of time to come though, but its great. The one slight surprise was the compost toilet, as we've not used one before but once you get used to it its absolutely fine. We totally loved our time here, we cant wait to book another trip and enjoy this beautiful home again. Thank you so much Maya and family. Stefan and Kim

  • We stayed at Maya and Robin's for 3 nights, and it was a really wonderful experience. The weather was cold and bright, so there were long walks along the Pembrokeshire coast to be had in the day, and time spent relaxing in front of the wood-burning stove in the evenings. The cabin was clean, spacious and had all the comforts we needed. Maya and Robin were gracious hosts, and offered recommendations of places to go (including the local brewery a short walk away). They also invited us to join in their friends-and-family football game, and I had a ride around their field on a friend's pony (thank you, Grace!). It really could not have been a more relaxing break. There's no wi-fi or phone signal at the cabin, but that just added to the experience; although I would recommend taking a deck of cards to help while away those evenings. Thank you again!

  • Maya's cosy cabin is a lovely retreat. It is nestled in the preseli hills, not far from wonderful family friendly beaches. It is well equipped, small but beautifully formed. Maya has considered the space well and has included everything from log burner, herb and spices to cook with, a mezzanine sleeping area, BBQ and hot tub. Although the entrance to the cabin is by their house, it is situated above it, within its own private garden. The hot tub was perfect on a summers night after a BBQ. There is no TV, mobile reception and internet, which I didn’t really realise when I booked it but it actually turned out to be a bonus as we had to switch off and relax. We enjoyed our brief holiday here and would definitely recommend it. In fact, the biggest downside was the weather as it rained a lot!

  • Maya and Robin were really helpful and hospitable especially as the time approached for me and my girlfriend to use the cabin. Robin was patient when going through the working facilities of the accommodation with me and the cabin itself was almost exactly how it was in the pictures Airbnb had taken.

  • We loved the bright Cosy Cabin and how peaceful the stay was! Future guests will likely love the hot tub and the amazing views!

  • Barney and I had the most wonderful stay in Maya and Robin's cabin. We arrived on a perfectly clear evening and managed to photograph the Milky Way better than ever before. The cabin retains heat fantastically thanks to the incredible woodburner. 2 nights was definitely not long enough, we could have stayed forever. But it allowed for 2 days of adventures and exploring around the Pembrokeshire coast, where we saw 5 seal pups! Thank you so much for a perfect break; we now want to buy a cabin instead of a house.

  • The cabin is set in the middle of fairy tale countryside and a short drive from Newport. On a nice sunny day we couldn't wish for more, on a rainy windy day there is a fantastic micro brewery next door! Great for travellers who are looking for a close contact with nature!

  • This is a fantastic place. The local brewery is lovely, great walks, hot tub - what more could you want!

    Three log cabins (Sleep 2 in each) TV in both. Wc / Washroom. One outdoor shower and a outdoor bath. Log burning Finnish Sauna. Treehouse sleps two persons. We also an out door bbq dining area.Magnificent views over the hills and down to the river. Only 1 mile from the famous Lake Vyrnwy and Dam.
  • Got there around 9:30am and had lovely chat and drinks with Stuart before having to rush off to a wedding which he very kindly drive us to and from. When we returned Stuart had put the heaters on for us and all or stuff in the cabin as previous occupiers were still there when we left. It was nice to come back to warmth as it was a rather chilly night. Got a great nights sleep after watching a quick episode of only fools and horses. In the morning Stuart lent me his phone as my mobile got zero signal so I could ring the hotel to check for my lost jacket. Nothing seems to be a hassle for Stuart, very friendly and hospitable!

  • Stuart's place is simply fantastic and exactly what it says on the tin. If you like quirky and different, then this is the place for you. Located in a lovely little valley close to Lake Vyrnwy, you wake up to the sound of birds and the nearby stream. Stuart was an excellent host, very accommodating and friendly, even though we were running late on arrival. He made sure we had everything we needed, showing us how to use the homemade sauna (sow-na!), hot bath and other amenities. A fantastic host, and not over-bearing. Really hot water is available any time for the outdoor bath and shower, so don't worry about that.

  • Stuart was extremely welcoming: he offered me a beer as soon as I had arrived. The log cabins are a wonderful place to connect with nature. It was chilly in the morning but very comfortable in the bed under the double duvet. The sauna, external shower and external bathtub were also very pleasant given the chilly weather because the hot water is very hot and comes out quickly.

  • Stuart made us feel SO welcome and gave us a whole load of info on walking/cycling routes, plus local attractions. The area is absolutely stunning; I'm not sure if the pictures quite do it justice. Stuart's cabin was lovely and cosy with everything we needed for our short stay. He lit the sauna and opened a bottle of wine for us! I would recommend staying here 100%.

  • A wonderful place. Rural, rustic, different, scenic and isolated. Host very welcoming and helpful! A unique experience! Thank you

  • First of all the area was beautiful and the people friendly. Stuart himself was very friendly and welcoming. The accommodation was more or less what we expected, and the bathtub under the stars exceeded my expectations and is something I won't soon forget. So in that sense BOOK IT. However, the place needs a very good clean. We've stayed in similar cabins before, and we're certainly not fussy. But apart from the many cobwebs and mustiness in the bedrooms, the cooker and counter were sticky, all the teacups stained, and the fridge hasn't been cleaned in a good while. There were sponges and a dishcloth, but even those were old and dirty. Also I'm not sure if we were supposed to ask Stuart for breakfast, but there wasn't anything provided. There was a pack of tea amongst the sticky bottles of spices, and that was it. We asked for coffee and sugar (and later, hot chocolate) and Stuart couldn't have been more generous. I don't know if he was caught unprepared, but judging by other comments, this is the norm. My friend and I would stay again as we're fairly easy in that sense, and it is a wonderful experience, but I wouldn't feel comfortable recommending the accommodation to anyone else.

  • First off, we read all the reviews before booking. If your expecting centre parks - look elsewhere! If your looking for a relaxing, different , off the beaten track, getting away from it all "glamping" experience - this is for you! We loved it, despite the cold wet weather, we can't wait to return. Stewart was great, made us feel comfortable and welcome. Loved sitting outside toasting hot Cross buns on the open fire. The vhs collection was great, loved laying in bed watching videos. Our only issue was the very rough track to the property. Stewart had warned us, but even our Audi A3 was scraping the underside. Really a 4x4 is needed unless the track is levelled a little. We will return! Jan & chris

  • Such a great location and the outdoor bath tub is great fun :)

    Kirstie Allsopp's Best of Both worlds programme on Channel 4 featured this romantic getaway for two.
    There is something about this thatched cottage that brings out the romance. We have hosted many honeymooners, couples that become engaged while here, and anniversary trips. It is simply lovely and cosy in an architecturally unique building near to the Welsh coast. Our situation provides guests with an excellent base to explore the many local attractions and the Coastal Path. By staying at Ffynnon Oer Isaf you will avoid the tourist crowds while being able to dip into the beach villages (or the water) as you please. If you wish to bring a dog please inquire first. Ffynnon Oer is ideally located. We are located on a good road so guests can easily hop in their car for a quick explore. Our guests enjoy the fact that Ffynnon Oer is a “hot spot” (compared to other holiday locations). We offer reliable internet with wi-fi so you can sit on the sofa and plan your next adventure. Most guests receive a decent mobile signal. No worries about having to roam around in a field or hilltop trying to get a signal! On top of all its practical advantages, the cottage itself will be one of the highlights of your trip. Ffynnon Oer Isaf is one of the best surviving examples of an eighteenth century clom cottages in Wales. It is Grade II listed in recognition of its “outstanding architectural interest. “ The cottage was built around 1750, and although there have been alterations, the interior arrangement and many details are original to that time. The “crogloffts” are traditional sleeping platforms that were once common in West Wales, as were wickerwork chimneys such as the one seen here. Apart from doing repair work, no one has built in clom in this area for well over a century. The walls are protected with a traditional limewash and the oak crucks and roof structure are all original and untouched since the eighteenth century. Our gardens are lovely any time of the year. Even in winter, there are over 20 different varieties of snowdrops. The front of the house is planted with a rose and herb garden. Please cut the roses and herbs for your enjoyment. We are dog friendly; however, our garden is not fully enclosed. Canine visitors adore the coastal path or exploring the countryside. Bath towels, bed linens, and bathroom welcome pack are included. The house is situated in a small hamlet of houses. We are near to the beaches of ceredigion, Aberaeron (15 minutes), Llangranog (30 minutes) Lampeter, the Llanerchaeron estate, Aberystwyth (35 minutes) and lovely dining at Ty Mawr Mansion which has been awarded five stars from VisitWales. Paragliding and walking is popular in the area. This property is co-located with another property that sleeps six. Both can be booked at the same time for a large party of eight. Please visit our blog for more photos, latest news and things to do in the area. Airbnb will not allow the posting of a URL. You can find our blog by searching for "Tales from Wales" and the words "spring water cottages" or add my name, "Melise."
    Everyone loves the drama of the Welsh coast. The peaceful view of sheep across the meadow and our lovely gardens. View our blog for lots of ideas on what to do and where to eat: search for 'springwater cottages" plus my name, "Melise" to find the blog. Please note: the house name is Ffynnon Oer Isaf. There is a gate at the front that says Ffynnon Oer in the grille work.
  • As a holiday base it was great. Tucked away in a quiet rural spot with easy access to nearby towns and the sea. The cottage was snug and warm (late September), it was well equipped with all we needed and we found the traditional features fascinating. The sleeping loft, with ladder access, proved accessible and adequate. We really felt we had got away from routine to a very relaxing environment.

  • We had the most amazing time here. So peaceful and so green! Loved the sheep in the field behind the garden. Melise has thought of everything you could possibly need, the kitchen is very well equipped. Melise was very quick to respond to all of my questions pre hols, thank you! Wales is so beautiful I would highly recommend staying here. It's a perfect location for a relaxing break but also close enough to enjoy the towns and beaches too. Definitely take a car to make sure you see everything. We did the Cardigan coast and made time to do a day trip down to Pembrokeshire. Both stunning. Book now!

  • We had a lovely time at the cottage, it was the perfect size for us! We did not have the best weather but this did not stop us from exploring the local countryside. Lots of walks along the coast (the best beaches are about 30 mins drive away). The cottage had everything we needed and the kitchen is well equipped if you want to do some cooking. There is lots of information on the local area to get stuck into and a map to help you find your way. The cottage is situated along a fairly fast road which made it difficult to go for walks or runs from the house itself. But you are surrounded by so much lovely countryside minutes drive away it really doesnt matter too much. Our dog loved it too! Thank you

  • We spent a lovely few days here in the cottage. Petra was very warm and welcoming. We went there to relax after a long stink of hard work before new year. It was great - the fire keeps the place really warm and all the wonky woodwork makes it really cosy! Very sweet little cottage! X

  • This is a little piece of heaven in the West Wales countryside. It is perfect in every way, and so thoughtfully and beautifully renovated. It felt like a real privilege to stay there and share a piece of Welsh history. We loved it, and it was so comfortable! Even though it's small, every comfort is there - right down to the champagne glasses ! the bed is really comfortable, the bathroom is fabulous. We didn't want to leave and will definitely be back. And it's really well situated for day trips and lovely pubs and walks. Highly recommended for a romantic stay away.

  • We found the cottage to be a lovely relaxing place and would highly recommend it to anyone looking for time away from the world

  • Wonderful cottage in a lovely, peaceful setting. The cottage has everything you could need for a short or long stay and is a great base to explore. Highly reccomended for everyone whether you want to spend all day out or all day snuggled inside the cottage!

  • We had a fantastic time here. It was perfect getaway. The sun was on the back garden in the morning and the front garden in the evening: just lovely. Petra was great but we didn't need anything through the stay. We would definitely come again.

  • I stayed at Penny's apartment for four days in June with my partner, Cardigan is a nice small town with a couple of very friendly pubs and a great Indian restaurant called Abdull's, I recommend eating there. The village is in a great location for accessing the nearby beaches, Mwnt is especially worth a visit! The apartment itself is great, everything you need for your stay and Penny couldn't have been more welcoming, I would definitely stay there again.

  • Apartment lovely. Town is very sweet. Pizza Tipi place just by the Quay is very nice and a short walk from the apartment. Local area & coastline very beautiful. Host very helpful and organised.

  • An absolutely beautiful studio apartment - we loved the location, the decor, the super comfy bed, and the practical kitchen space, too. It was lovely to be right at the top of the building and feel secluded and private, but so close to the town and the quay side as well. Thank you so much!

  • Very comfortable accommodation, well appointed and everything we needed. Recommended.

  • We had a brilliant time during our stay. The room was beautiful with everything you could possibly need. Penny was a brilliant host and was spot on with her recommendations for where to eat and to go walking. We highly recommend staying here and I'm sure we will stay there again.

  • Penny was very welcoming and we had a delightful stay in Cardigan. The flat is very close to the main street with restaurants, shops etc within minutes walk. Parking was very close by. There are plenty of things to do even on wet February weekdays! Lovely walks along the cliffs and beaches. We had a great time and would highly recommend it for a short break.

  • Lovely 3 day stay with my pregnant wife, was a perfect place to relax and unwind. Nice central location in Cardigan with easy access to some amazing beaches. Would definitely recommend the pizza tipi just around the corner. The accommodation itself is clean, comfortable and nicely decorated. Would recommend to any couple or even solo travelers wanting a break away from it all. Hopefully come back one day, will definitely be recommending to friends

  • Penny's apartment is so charming we had a hard time leaving it to explore the area. Penny is a welcoming and knowledgeable host. We would definitely return to stay again.

    Stunning scenery, wildlife, wild swimming, mountain walking or biking, fabulous drives, and starry starry nights. Excellent pub nearby.
  • beautiful area - peaceful -

  • The location is fabulous with walks and mountain biking routes all around and Janine was lovely. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay especially dropping off to the sound of the stream just out the front of the cabin. Would recommend anyone who needs a break from city life as it is money well spent..

  • Staying in Janine's cabin was amazing. My boyfriend and I stayed here to celebrate my 21st birthday. Janine was a great host, she left us to enjoy our stay but was there if we needed to ask any questions. She gave us a dog towel as we'd forgotten one, there were slippers and ponchos for us to wear, she'd thought of everything. Janine had even made us Welsh cakes that were perfect after a long journey to get there. It rained quite a lot, as England does in September, but this did not affect our stay one bit. We played board games (some supplied by Janine) and went to the pub that was a few miles down the road. We also cycled to Llanwrtyd Wells, which was about 3 miles from the cabin, only took us about an hour, definitely take your bikes Builth Wells wasn't far from the cabin too, it had a highstreet full of shops, pubs and cafes with some places where we could take our dog. This place was so perfect, my boyfriend proposed to me in the cabin on our first night! Would recommend to anyone looking to get away and switch off for a bit. Thank you Janine x

  • Janine was very welcoming and helpful, the cabin was in a great peaceful location, beautiful surroundings, highly recommended for a relaxing time away from the busy life

  • Our stay in the wooden cabin was relaxing and peaceful. The facilities were excellent and location was stunning. The surrounding forest provided plenty of walks that varied in difficulty. The black route was especially testing as we got lost! The location is especially good if you are interested in mountain biking. The area was very quiet and secluded so remember to take enough supplies to last. The toilet facilities were better than we had expected from the description and were just behind the cabin. Janine was very friendly and greeted us with some very tasty welsh cakes with the offer of milk in case we had forgotten ours. The small fenced garden allowed us to let our dog roam around and not to be restricted (The cats kept an eye on our dog!). We would definitely recommend this cabin for a peaceful relaxing break and we will book again.

  • Very accurate description, no neighborhood so lovely and peaceful as expected! Nice break away from technology and reality. Lots of games, lovely hosts that were very helpful and great with communication before and during the stay. If you want a chilled weekend with no interruptions definitely recommend especially for couples or nature enthusiasts!

  • Amazing location, perfect for escaping from modern tech and relaxing, with a very welcoming host. We've shared our photos and already have friends that want to book the "Cabin" in the future. I'm sure we'll be back too :)

  • A brilliant place to escape too. Far off the beaten track and set among some stunning country. A stream for a fridge and a fire to cook upon twinned with the creature comforts of heated blankets and a radiator, a perfect blend

    Come and relax in this quirky little home in the heart of Snowdonia. From the doorstep walk through the woods, along a river with waterfalls, into the mountains. 10 minutes drive to the sea. or Snowdon. Or a steam train ride.
    Step over the threshold and make this your home for the length of your stay. Relax in the colourful spaces within- relish the quirky and lovingly chosen decor. Breath in the clean sweet air. Be soothed by sights and sounds around you- the gentle waterfall you can hear if you sit quietly downstairs. waking in the night to silence or the occasional owl hooting. The scent of log fires greets you as you return from a local walk. This is a 3 bed room terraced cottage in Snowdonia, at the edge of the Lleyn peninsula. It is close to the town of Porthmadog. Located on the A4085- a quiet road - easy access and no problem to find with a satnav. Parking has changed. due to some guest unfortunately misunderstanding instructions I can no longer offer access to the farm yard and must ask guests to park very carefully immediately outside the cottage. there is a line painted around the parking space- if you park outside this you risk being woken at dawn by an angry neighbour beeping their horn, or worse- banging on the door. you also risk having your car damaged (not by the angry neighbour but with a vehicle trying to squeeze past!) If you are in a party with 2 or more cars then the other drivers must park in one of the laybys- about five minutes walk from the cottage- you must contact me for information on this. If any guests park in the farm yard I will have to leave them a negative review. Hopefully in time the farmer will let me use the space again. The house has a good size sitting room with a wood burning stove. I provide a stack of logs each side of the fire place. I leave enough for three nights. It is very important for guests to read the instructions on how to use the wood burner for its benefits to be felt. If you are unsure then please ask. Guests leaving the stove doors open are running a fire risk and also it will not make the stove burn hotter- on the contrary. Extra logs can be bought from the local shop or nearby petrol stations. Two oil filled radiators are provided for back ground heat.Fire blanket, fire extinguisher, first aid kit and torch on shelf next to fire place. Lots of choice books and board games. Children's corner in living room with a little basket of small toys and books. I can provide a travel cot, push chair and highchair on request. There is a small tv with a DVD player and a selection of DVDs- but no TV reception. some people manage to pick up wi-fi- BT if you have it. Well equipped kitchen- electric fan oven, gas burner hob. Micro wave, electric kettle, toaster, cafetiere, fridge-freezer, plenty of utensils...even a rolling pin. Fire blanket next to cooker. Bath room with power shower and deep bath- the water is heated by the stove and gets really hot, there is also an electric emersion heater for summer time. Hair dryer, iron, ironing board and drying rack. shampoo and hand wash provided. all bed linen provided fresh pillow cases, duvet with cover and sheet - all changed for each new set of guests. Towels - provided on request for a surcharge of £15 per booking- ie, regardless of numbers of guests. tea towels provided. The house has three bedrooms. The main one has a double bed and vaulted ceiling- with views across to the mountains. Wardrobe and bedside table with lamp. middle room has a double bed, built in cupboard and bedside cupboard with lamp. The back bed room has twin beds, bedside cabinet and lamp. All beds have 15 tog non -feather duvets, duvet cover, pillow cases, sheets and mattress covers on all the beds. I change the bedding for every new set of guests. Disposable mattress protectors available on request for toddlers who are still getting used to big beds. There is also a blanket each and a hot water bottle for each bed for extra chilly nights- though the radiators should keep you warm. From the front door you can walk to famous horizontal climbing cliffs at Carreg Hyll Drem. Great for bouldering as well. Walk a bit further and follow the river and water falls along the quartz ridge to nearby mountain Cnicht, break your journey at the lovely Croesor cafe with home made cakes, art gallery and wood burning stove. Just up the road, an easy walk, is Brondanw Gardens, family home to Clough Williams Ellis who built Portmerion. There is a great little cafe there that sells crafts. Five minutes drive away are the Tremdog cliffs and the Eric Jones climbers cafe. Lots of cafes - all of them selling decent fresh coffee. A mile or so to the Pont Croesor RSPB Osprey nesting view site. The Osprey nest and breed- (average 3 chicks) between May and late September- they often can be seen from the house- flying home in the evenings. 5 miles away- The Italianate village Portmerion- made famous by the Prisoner and host to arts and music festival "6" in September There are steam train rides at Welsh Highland and Ffestiniog Railways, both running from Porthmadog. Castles- Harlech and Criccieth- both about 9 miles away (in opposite directions) Caernarfon- about 15 miles away. 5 miles from wild beaches. Lakes, rivers and waterfalls within walking distance- perfect for wild swimmers. 15 minutes drive from Coed Y Brenin mountain bike trails. There is a very good pub (Brondanw Arms- known locally as The Ring) that stocks real ales and makes excellent food- a mile up the road- a pleasant walk there and back if you want to have a drink and not take the car. Also a mile away is a well stocked village shop with all you need including fresh veg and lots of local produce. It has a cafe and does a take away meal special each Friday. For bigger shops Porthmadog (5 miles away) has a Lidl, Aldi and Tesco, as well as a deli and a wholefood shop. The house has a good size sitting room with a wood burning stove- fuel provided. Well equipped kitchen. Bath room with power shower. Don't expect wi-fi or reception is limited to the upstairs, front bedroom. The local pub and the village shop both have wi-fi. Do expect- glorious sunsets. The sound of a waterfall to lull you to sleep. For a small extra charge (£5) we can provide transport from Penrhyndeudraeth- Cambrian Coastline- station for people wanting to travel without cars-- the train comes direct from Birmingham International. I do need at least 2 weeks notice for this to be arranged. It will depend on my schedule. The house is close to a bus route which links to walks up Snowdon- Sherpa service. We live near by- the house is all to yourselves. Have a look at the Street View..if you twizzle it around you get a sense of the landscape- you can walk for many miles before coming to a reminder of the 21st century. This is the perfect getaway- see what it feels like to have a break from your mind a while. The internet will still be there when you go home.o
    this area has a long history of interesting visitors- when Clough Williams Ellis ( the creator of Portmerion) was alive he had all sorts of artistic and literary friends visiting and staying, sometimes for years! this has left a legacy of warm curiosity and a generous sprinkling of artists, musicians and writers who either live here or visit. it is a land of inspiration. Meirioneddshire has one of the lowest crime rates in Europe- thats why I leave the house key in such an accessible place, with no worries. One recent guest commented " I felt so safe staying here" relax- breath easy.
  • Fantastic stay in a stunning location. Great walks nearby and cottage very snug and cosy just as described. Thanks Annie!

  • A wonderful weekend break. Home from home. Very well located for walking and day tripping and lots of treats on arrival. Thanks Annie.

  • Nice and cozy cottage in the middle of Snowdonia!! Fully equipped kitchen, including nice teas and welsh cakes :) A good selection of books and board games, we enjoyed reading and playing next to the fireplace.

  • We came to Snowdonia for a long weekend, visiting Porthmadog and to climb Snowdon. Before the stay Annie was great at getting in touch with all the necessary information and provided perfect directions! The cottage itself is lovely if you're looking for that relaxed home-away-from-home holiday. It was clean, had all the needed amenities and a lovely warm fire for the evenings. I would highly recommend Annie's cottage for anyone visiting the area!

  • A great little place, close to porthmadog. Our family of 4 enjoyed staying here. We weren't too far from many of the touristy attractions that north Wales has to offer. Mount Snowdon, National Slate Museum, Zip worlds, Biking, Portmeirion, and various amazing castles are things we got up to whilst we were there for a week. Beautiful walks are also an option, with clear instructions on how to get there and back. Annie had some great suggestions for us which we did too. Great memories made :-)

  • Had a lovely time staying at the cottage. It was a prime location for visiting Beddgelert (which we really enjoyed), and Mount Snowdon. We didn't do any of the walks around the cottage, but definitely enjoyed the views. We went to the Ring pub around the corner for Curry night and were pleasantly surprised by the hospitality.

  • The cottage is a perfect place for a little retreat away from the hustle and bustle. The neighbors were very friendly and the place was great for a stay away from home.

  • We stayed at Annie's cottage for 3 nights in January. Lovely cozy spot & everything we needed for cooking breakfast, building fire, etc. Didn't get to meet Annie but spoke to her on the phone & she was more than willing to come help out with anything if needed. Nice walks leaving straight from the cottage and a short stroll to the local pub. View of the mountains & sheep from the living room & front bedroom and some friendly cows at the farm nearby. Would definitely recommend the cottage for a stay in North Wales.

    Right in the heart of the beautiful historic Pembrokeshire seaside town of Tenby you will find this 1 bedroom apartment with views overlooking the cobbled town square itself. Comfortable second floor apartment overlooking the town square from its large bay window, a great place to watch the world go by with your morning coffee. Only footsteps away from the stunning blue flag beaches, shops, restaurants, wine bars and public houses. During the summer months you can enjoy al fresco dining as the town centre is pedestrianised between 11am - 5pm. Private side street access. Entire apartment including all basic amenities. Please note the apartment is on the 2nd floor so there are a few steps. Keeps us nice and active in our old age!! We are only next door so if you need anything at all, whether it be a cup of sugar or some local knowledge just give us a knock or drop us a text. So much to say.....Tenby is widely known as the jewel in Pembrokeshire's crown. However if you wish to venture outside the town walls you will find everything from historic castles, stunning coastal walks, national park sites to crazy golf, go karting and a theme park. The area has so much to offer it would be impossible to list it all here however we have left some tourist info in the apartment and we have lived here all our lives so happy to point you in the right direction. Also please remember there will be some residual noise from the town as you will be based within the heart of it.

  • Our stay at Linzi's house was wonderful. Linzi was incredibly friendly and accommodating, and gave us great restaurant suggestions. The house is in a fantastic location, and immediately felt like home. We couldn't have asked for more. I would definitely recommend staying at Linzi's beautiful home. Thanks again, Linzi!

  • Excellent location and great value for money. Would definitely use again. The host Linzi was very welcoming

  • Linzi is superb host! Friendly & welcoming. Flat is immaculate, felt very comfy & couldn't be better placed in Tenby. If we're back in Tenby we'd happily stay here again due to great value for money. We struggled with lack of mobile reception so found it hard to track down initially, so be warned. Also, if you're a very light sleeper you might be disturbed by noise from neighbours & the hubbub outside. This wasn't an issue for us though! Thanks Linzi :)

  • Perfect holiday apartment for townies and explorers - boat trips in abundance and spoilt for choice when wining & dining - terrific value with such a friendly host

  • We had an absolutely brilliant weekend in Tenby. Linzi met us and showed us to the apartment - the location is brilliant for everything you need to get to - walking, eating and drinking. We got some good tips for food and directions to where we needed to go and Linzi even let us stay longer on our checkout day, which really helped us out instead of carrying out bags around. Loved it and would recommend this to anyone thinking of visiting Tenby.

  • linzi welcomed us warmly upon our arrival in tenby, and walked us to the tucked away entrance to this flat. it was clean, bright, comfortable, and welcoming ~ as pictured and described. nestled in the picturesque town center, excellent access to the beautiful shoreline, launch for the caldey island boat trips, lovely st. mary's church, and plenty of fine fare. as vegetarians, we were especially delighted by all the delicious options in tenby. we especially appreciated linzi's local recommendations and particular accommodation of our arrival and departure times. note: the saturday night tenby rowdies can impinge on your peace & quiet (unless you're out in the mix!). but the bedroom fan helps filter out the sounds, and by sunday morning, all is quiet and the streets are yours!

  • Linzi was a really lovely host and frequently text us to ensure everything was okay. She came and found us when we were lost, briefly gave us a tour around the apartment and then left us to ourselves. The photos provided are accurate and represent the apartment really well, it's a lovely space with basic amenities provided such as shampoo/milk/tea bags. It is right in the city centre and walking distance to everything you need. Thank you Linzi for letting us stay, I'm sure we'll be back!

  • We had a lovely 3 day stay in Linzi's flat. The location is excellent, really close to everything in Tenby. You have to park in the multistorey car park but that is less than 5 minutes from the flat and only £3 for 24 hours. The flat has everything you could need, a kitchen with everything you need to cook, comfy bed, lounge and dining area with a tv, nice bathroom with toiletries provided. Linzi is lovely and recommended some great restaurants nearby. Would definitely recommend this flat to anyone planning a trip to Tenby.

The apartment is a unique space set over 3 levels - as you walk in you have the bedroom and living area to the right (upstairs to the bedroom, downstairs to the living room), the bathroom straight ahead and the kitchen around and to the left. The bathroom and kitchen have ceramic tile flooring and the rest of the apartment has oak flooring.

    Easy access to everything Cardiff has to offer. Principality Stadium and Cardiff City Stadium. Music and Concert Venues, wide range of restaurants, bars, nightspots and cool cocktail lounges. Cardiff Bay with the Welsh Millenium Centre, Wales national home for the performing Arts and the home of Welsh National Opera, Dr Who Experience, Mermaid Quay, Techniquest and a wide selection of restaurants, bars and cafes. The apartment is close to the Taff Trail running alongside the River Taff which is a popular walking and cycle path providing exceptional views and scenery over 55 miles between Cardiff Bay and Brecon. Bring your own bikes and leave them in the secure bike shed or hire them when you get here. Canton where the apartment is located or "Treganna" in Welsh, is a multicultural area to the west of Cardiff city centre and is very convenient for all the Cardiff attractions, shops, restaurants and bars. Canton had a huge influx of Irish immigrants in the 19th century, so perhaps this is why there are so many lively local pubs around the district. Speaking of which - the apartment itself is in an architect-designed conversion of a pub dating back to 1898 and a small part of the building has been retained as a pub - The Lansdowne Pub. The pub serves real ales, Weiss beers, good cider, proper pub food - as well as pickled eggs! It also won the prestgious CAMRA Cardiff pub of the year in 2014 and 2015. Generally you will not hear any noise from the pub - the only time you might hear some noise is if there is a Wales rugby match on! If you have not experienced a Welsh rugby match in Wales before we would recommend you get stuck in and soak up the atmosphere! It's not just pubs in Canton - it's also home to the HQ for arty folk in Cardiff -Chapter Arts Centre - which describes itself as "an ambitious, multi-artform cultural space that presents and produces international art, performance and film alongside a dynamic social space." The area offers a lot due to its multicultural society. The cocktail of cultures makes it one of the most vibrant and diverse in Cardiff, which is good news for those who like to eat out. Whether you're into dim sum, fancy a taste of British aka 'fish & chips', or Mediterranean floats your boat, Canton has it all. For your day-to-day needs there is a small cornershop about a minute's walk away and a larger Co-Operative supermarket about a 5 minute walk away where you should be able to buy pretty much everything you need for your stay. In terms of Sports, Cardiff City football stadium is around 10 minutes walk and the Principality is around 20 minutes walk. Easy access to all the attractions Cardiff offers.
  • Lovely flat with everything you need. Very clean throughout with well equipped kitchen and spotless bathroom. Very comfortable bed and loved the minimalist decor with some fab girly touches (great pictures, candles, throws, cushions etc. which all leave a wonderful personal touch). Great place for a getaway with a few friends or for a couple. Secure private off-road parking (via security gates opened with a fob). Caroline has made a real effort to leave instructions in the flat so you know exactly what you need for WiFi, syncing with the Bose speakers etc. and her communication was great in the lead up to and during the stay. Only one tiny thing - even though we had all three electric heaters on it was quite cold under foot in the flat (bring your slippers in the winter as my friend and I went to buy some as our feet were so cold! - and we don't usually feel the cold!) Other than that, everything was perfect. Thanks for a really lovely stay in Cardiff.

  • We enjoyed our stay at Caroline's apartment. Quiet, comfortable and close to frequent public transport links into Cardiff centre. Caroline was a great host and quickly responded to any queries. We ate out each night in the local area and would recommend Chapter Arts Centre and a small italian restaurant Calabrissela 154 Cowbridge Road. After a busy day enjoying the delights of the city it was lovely to come back to Canton and our apartment.

  • My friends and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay here! It was perfect for our girly get together and close to the city centre. Caroline the owner was easily contactable without being intrusive plus she had thought of everything, from household instructions and information on local amenities to kindly leaving milk and pastries on our arrival. We intended to go out but ended up having dinner at a local restaurant and returning to the apartment for more girly chit chat!

  • Really well furnished apartment that was lovely to relax in. The living area was very comfy, and the spacious bathroom has a great shower! Just a few minutes walk to two different bus stops, and 20-30 minutes walk into town. The washing machine and dishwasher were very handy.

  • I had such a lovely stay here, the apartment is exactly as it is in the photos,beautiful. Caroline was the perfect host, eager to help in any way, there when I needed her, polite friendly. I would highly recommend this stay to anyone.

  • We had a great stay in Carolines place, communication with her was great, and everything was as per photographs. Lovely, clean and well equipped. Would highly recommend.

  • Great apartment - clean, modern, well equipped, and very comfortable. Fantastic communication from Caroline throughout. Would stay again, no hesitation.

  • Great place very clean and good facilities and Caroline was very helpful

  • Five stars for David and his wonderfull wife Yan! I stayed there with my girlfriend for two nights an we loved it! We didn't meet David, which was a pity, but his wife did everything to make us feel at home. We felt not treated as strangers, not even as guests, but as friends. Thanks for that! Their house is lovely. You will like the asian furniture and the many plants (especially in your own bathroom). The house is approx. 12 walking minutes away from downtown Cardiff. Pubs and nice Indian restaurants ar even closer. David and Yan gave us good advice on where to go, Yan even drove us downtown on the first day. If you want to visit Cardiff, look no further. You cannot find a better accomodation.

  • We had a great stay with Yan, lovely house and great breakfast! Thanks!

  • We had a really nice stay with David and Yan. Their house is bright and cheery, and they were very friendly and accommodating. The coffee was superb!

  • The house is soooo nice~ we were happy to see the chinese host here~ good location,beautiful garden ,just love it~~~

  • Yan was an amazing host. We stayed at her and David's place two times over a 5-day period of our Wales trip (had to go someplace else for 2 days), and she made it very easy for us to check out, leave our bags, etc. She offered a lot of advice on local transportation, and made us delicious breakfast and coffee. The house is beautiful and every detail is thought out. It's really charming. It took us 15 minutes to walk to Queen Street and taxi was £5.20 from the central station. We would have liked to meet David too, but he was presumably out of town. Highly recommend this place. Thank you, Yan!

  • This was our first air b&b experience, and it was a very good way to start. The house was beautiful and very clean, Yan made us feel very welcome and we felt relaxed and at home. We brought our dogs with us and the accommodation worked very well, we all had a nice time and I would stay again.

  • My second stay at David and Yan's place so clearly I think it's a great option. Once again a very nice stay.

  • We can clearly recommend David's place, we had a perfect stay! The house is really really gorgeous, individual and we felt like being in Africa or Australia. The garden is awesome. David offered us a lot of help, gave advices and dropped us off in the city after showing us around. They let us use everything and the breakfast was adorable. We liked that they took time to talk to us. The room was exact what we needed, comfy bed, clean sheets and towels provided. We would definitely stay in their house again and regret just staying two nights. We can just thank them for this experience and their caring nature.

  • The stay we had at the farm was excellent. Our group of 4 had the entire house to ourselves, and in hindsight would have stayed another night or more to take advantage of the location and amenities nearby. The area is fairly secluded & I would suggest travelling in the daytime unless you have electronic maps. Communication with Elizabeth was great, with helpful advice and clear directions.

  • Quirky house in a great location for hill walking

  • Great base for our trip to bike park wales. Excellent value. Great communication from hosts all the way through. Many thanks, we will be back!

    Rhondda Cynon Taff, Wales, United Kingdom

    A cozy attic room in an older house with plenty of character. located in a 'cool' neighbourhood. Very close to everything in Cardiff - 5 minutes walk from the bus and train stations, the city centre, Cardiff Castle etc. A comfortable double futon + up to 2 single beds available. The room is up a wooden stair-ladder so you do need to be a bit 'fit', but is peaceful and private, away from the rest of the house. We'll make you feel very welcome, and ensure your stay in Cardiff an enjoyable one.
    This attic room is very peaceful, with a view out over the city rooftops to Cardiff Castle, the rugby stadium, and the city centre. It has a comfortable double futon and a single bed (with option for another bed and possibly a foam mattress on the floor), so is suitable for a couple plus 1, 2, or 3 single people. Use of kitchen, and back garden. Fast wi-fi, city centre maps, guide books etc. available Je parle francais - y hablo espanol tambien. My Welsh isn't so good, though!
    Riverside is a friendly multicultural community with plenty of character and some great local bars and cafes. There is a farmers market (which I started many years ago) every Sunday morning very close to my house, selling excellent fresh local Welsh food of all kinds. It's a great place to meet people
  • Nice place. Steve was very helpful, gentle and correct

  • Booked at steve's for my dad and brother. They received a warm welcome and had a great stay! Steve was really helpful and they both would highly recommend here!

  • Steve's attic is a quirky, comfortable, and central place to explore Cardiff from. It's not fancy, and the rest of the house could have done with some cleaning up. If you really can't handle a messy kitchen, look somewhere else. But the attic was private enough, and cleaned up well for my wife and myself. The location is really good, ten minutes' walk from city centre, the train station, and most attractions. Steve is a friendly and decent guy, who was really flexible and accommodating. I wouldn't want to stay here long-term, but if you're comfortable spending a couple days living in someone else's house and putting up with a bit of a mess, this attic is good value for the money.

  • Exactly what we expected - great

  • I had read the description but not carefully enough and when I got to the place I learnt "I should climb a ladder" to get to the room. I got badly surprised and scared but Steve made it easy on me. The family worked together and prepared a room on the second floor for me :) I had good conversation with Steve and his daughter. Nice family and especial one :) Steve does lots of different interesting things. He gave me one of his book (poetry) when I was leaving and I managed to read more than half of it on the train. Interesting short poems. I liked them all.

  • A friendly host. The house is in a nice residential area very close (a few minutes) to the city centre which was ideal for a short stay. The room was good value. I had no problem with the ladder stairs up to the room but they might not suit everyone. Overall a great stay!

  • I have stayed in the room for 2 nights with my friend. It is small lovely room. Clean and comfortable. No problem with internet. Host was helpful, offered us more help, but we didn't really spent to much time at home, we only came to sleep. Location is very good, it is very close to city centre. I would recommend to stay there for short trip.

  • Steve was friendly and welcoming. The room was comfortable and I felt right at home. The house is very convenient for the city centre. Steve gave a good Restaurant recommendation too.

    A converted railway carriage for 5 on the very edge of Cardigan Bay. No neighbours, just you and the waves...and dolphins as Europe's largest colony live year-round! Sleeps 5 in 2 bedrooms! WIFI & woodburner. INSTANT BOOK - Calendar updated daily :)
    INSTANT BOOK - My calendar is updated every day of the year so you may 'Instant Book' with confidence. :) No need to ask 'if available'. The carriage is snug ALL year round - panel radiators in every room and, woodburner, and double glazing. What's included? Basically just bring yourselves, and food and drink. The bed/s are made (according to number staying) with 100% cotton linen, towels & teatowels provided, fresh dishcloth every time (and washing up liquid, and liquid soap, and first few toilet rolls). First basket of logs (and kindling, paper, matches) for the woodburner. The kitchen is equipped. All you need is to relax, get out on the veranda with your drink of choice, and start looking for dolphins! Conde Nast Traveller - Top Five 'best spots to enjoy the British Seaside' 'This carriage has reached her final staging post - between the beaches of Aberporth and Tresaith. The only neighbours are the birds...this is the perfect place for toasting crumpets after a day's walking or dolphin-spotting' (Sally Shalam for Conde Naste Traveller magazine). Enjoy some of the finest views in Wales from our converted Edwardian railway carriage located on the coastal footpath between the sandy beaches at Aberporth and Tresaith. Many guests see Europe's largest colony of bottle-nose dolphins in the bay in front, and direct access to the heritage coast footpath makes our carriage the ideal location for exploring the West Wales coast. Peaceful location with no roads within 300 yards. You can catch sea bass and mackerel on lines from the rocks in front of the carriage. In Detail - All rooms in the carriage are lined in oak, are insulated and have panel heaters so are suitable for use all year round. We love it when it is stormy in winter! WIFI provided free of charge, works in every room (note we've never had any problem with it, and to our knowledge it always works, but like any accommodation provider we cannot guarantee WIFI) Kitchen with cooker, microwave etc. Fairly basic as kitchens go but better views than most you'll have used! Fridge with small freezer compartment. Door to rear covered patio 'the train platform'. 'Salon' with woodburner (first basket of fuel supplied). Two sofas Verandah with views to the front. benches and table. Bedroom Compartment 1: standard size Double bed, wardrobe etc, luggage racks! It's compact, but cosy. Fitted wardrobe and dressing table. Hairdryer. Bedroom Compartment 2: Standard size Double bed + one narrow train bunk (suitable only for child). Again, note it's compact! Dining Compartment: It wouldn't be a train without one! 1930s Oak dining suite. Shower Room with quality quadrant shower, toilet etc. Heated chrome towel rail and blast fan for warmth when you get out of the shower. Garden (enclosed) with access to sea, picnic bench, also private patio to rear WIFI included free of charge, but, like in any accommodation, cannot be guaranteed. Always worked so far :)
    (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) the Ceredigion coastal footpath and you'll see why I love it! Location between two of UK's best sandy, Blue-Flag beaches - Aberporth and Tresaith.
  • What an amazing place to stay, everything was provided and directions clear and understandable even when arriving in the dark! Wendy was a great place to stay and we loved having all of our meals outside looking at the views! Was a great get away from London life and would 100% visit again.

  • A lovely setting, with a quaint 108 year old carriage to settle in. The dark wood made it feel a bit gloomy in the day, but as much time was spent on the verandah and out & about as we could. We could not find the advertised trolley, but we coped with moving our luggage without it. No local dolphins during our short stay, but we did see them elsewhere on the coast. Suggest you bring clothes pegs! We found one. A short shelf on the wall above the long side of the bed would be useful in each compartment, for putting the morning cup of tea, the night-time book, etc.

  • Wendy is just a lovely place to stay. Stunning location, we intended to do something our first day and ended up just sitting out on the veranda for about 12 hours because we didn't want to leave! Saw dolphins twice, once right off the rock in front of Wendy. For future passengers we recommend just relaxing, scheduling some lazy mornings and late evenings, becoming a master fire-builder (or trying to if you're my husband!) and just enjoying your time here, it's a great place to just get away from it all.

  • Me and my partner, we spent three lovely days in this train car. Although it is winter, there are some nice walks around there with impressive views. Even from all the rooms of the train car you get excellent views of the coast and the ocean. All the area is quiet, ideal for a few relaxing days. There are a couple of towns in walking distance and although most of their services are oriented to summer season there's at least a grocery store a pub, a cafe and a pharmacy open in winter. Regarding the train car, it's very cosy with a great bed and plenty of space. There's heaters in most of the rooms, so you can stay warm even in winter.

  • We had a great time at Wendy's. What a imaginary ride aboard the pretty carriage for the little ones. It was an adventure for all the family. The porch, perfect for breakfast overlooking the sea. Great hosts, no problems. Thank you, Greg! Hasta pronto.

  • We thoroughly enjoyed our two night stay, and just wish we could have stayed longer. Beautiful location and really tastefully furnished - we loved the authenticity of the carriage. We even saw dolphins! Highly recommended.

  • Loved every single moment of our stay. The coastal path is wide and easy to walk along, stunning views. Saw dolphins every day. The carriage is very cosy, warm and comfortable. Saw lots of dog walkers who were friendly and interested in 'Wendy'. It would be fantastic to have more history on this grand old lady to read about in the carriage and any old photos framed on the walls. All the local shops were fine for what we needed as we were more interested in the wildlife along the bay and I couldn't bare to be too far away from such a gorgeous holiday home. We even saw 4 rainbows appear across the sea within half an hour, just such a beautiful place.Can't fault our stay. Would love to come back again soon. We would both highly recommend this beautiful part of Wales and 'Wendy' :0)

  • This was a present for my parents, but they told me that they had an excellent stay. The accommodation was cosy and very comfortable. The carriage makes a great base for walking. Despite the weather being a bit wild they got out for some really nice walks and managed to see some dolphins. All in all they had an excellent time.

    Aberporth, Wales, United Kingdom

    Small stone Bothy in tranquil garden with stunning views over Clwydian hills. Pretty self contained bothy with double sofa bed, wood burning stove, compost loo, private, own parking, tea making facilities,use of shower in main house.
    This is a secluded romantic self contained space in a beautiful setting with a small wood burning stove, private parking and stunning views.
    This is a peaceful neighbourhood, steeped in history. Set in tranquil countryside with stunning views and tranquillity. With private parking, bus stop 100 metres away and public house 100 metres away.
  • There is no doubt that the Bothy is basic but we knew that when we booked it; it was for the experience, which was like camping but with a charming stone building and a wood-burner instead of a tent. We went while Jenny was away so we didn't get to use the house/shower but we knew that and it was fine; there is a sink and running water. There is a pub adjacent but it does not serve food (or decent lager. Or any wine!) and I don't get the feeling it will last much longer. We had a great night there though - Western Night with karaoke! There are no other establishments in walking distance despite what you might read! Despite low expectations we were still a bit taken aback by the Bothy's lack of bed; you have a sort of fouton about three inches off the floor and it is Hard! We could not have managed two nights on that. The compost toilet is a bucket in a shed which might not surprise more seasoned campers but it took us a while to get over. The door to the Bothy sticks noisily so it is impossible to go for a nocturnal pee or sh*t in a bucket without disturbing your partner. BUT....there was nothing misleading about any of the listing details. We wanted a different experience and were perhaps slightly naive - that's why I am spelling it out clearly. We had a great time and the area is beautiful and peaceful. If it had a more comfortable 'bed' I would do it again. As it is, maybe not but for cyclists and walkers this is a perfect stop for the night.

  • Jenny was a lovely host and left us to enjoy the bothy once giving us a few informative pointers. The bothy was a great getaway for the night and we'd definitely stay again!

  • We had a lovely stay in the bothy. We only stayed for one night, on our way from London to the Lake District. It was a perfect pit stop! Cosy and warm. The sofa bed was surprisingly comfy and it was a quiet stay. There is a pub nearby, where we had a very tasty dinner and joined in with "karaoke night". It also provides parking. Jenny was lovely and welcoming. The place was exactly as advertised, we would definitely stay again if we were travelling that way again .

  • Jenny was a lovely host, and the Bothy was ideal, and exactly as described. An ideal location, and a very cute and romantic little place to stay, with a woodburner adding to the whole package. The closeness of a very welcoming pub was also fantastic, with two excellent hosts, and a very short distance to make it back to the Bothy afterwards! Even the weather was kinder than we expected, so all round we had thee wonderful days. Thanks Jenny!

  • Lovely self contained place, close to main route to ferry so very handy for travelling on, great friendly host ..

  • Fun place to stay! We didn't meet Jenny, but she left plenty of info and we felt welcomed. The bothy is small but has everything you need for a day or longer (shower/bath excepted), and its location/view is great. The proprietors of the neighboring pub were very friendly and did us a good, simple (sandwich) meal even though they don't official offer food. And the pub patrons were chatty and friendly! Would definitely stay here again.

  • Had a lovely two night stay at Jenny's little bothy. Bothy small and cosy and we were very warm and comfortable. No cooking facilities so we ate out but did have the option of bringing camping stove. Bothy does have hot running water though for washing and washing up. Jenny met us on arrival and was friendly and welcoming. Then left us to it to enjoy our stay but made sure she gave us her number if we had any problems. Compost loo not really our cup of tea but we did know about it before we arrived. Don't really know what we were expecting with the loo but must admit it didn't really do it for us. But the Bothy itself we did enjoy the simplicity of it all and the peaceful setting. Thanks Jenny.

  • Very welcoming host who went out of her way to be helpful (including offering a lift from the station and inviting me to a yoga class), and a lovely self-contained space; a woodburning stove, a comfortable sofabed, and a kettle and sink meant I had everything I needed. Lovely base for exploring the nearby countryside, or (as I did) to use as a space for retreat, contemplation, and creativity. Many thanks!

  • The hosts are lovely and friendly and the cottage was exactly what we expected. We went up Snowden and on beach walks in Anglesey and also went on a bit of a pub crawl in Bethesda. It was a great weekend getaway and we would definitely recommend it.

  • Lovely place, Lovely People . Welcome flowers in a vase , Welsh cakes, and Fresh bread and milk in the fridge , very helpful in every way. Comfortable bed and fluffy towels.

  • Loved staying at Julie's place. The house was really cosy and beautiful. Maps we were provided with were really helpful, also the Welsh cakes she left for us were delicious. Perfect place for a fantastic weekend!

  • Dear Julie thank you very much, we loved your house and our staying. Even time later than we stayed in your house we talked about how was it great to find the warm bed (I saw it for the first time and it was great surprise ) we have very good impressions about Snowdonia - rocks, great air and warm bed) I recommend Julie and would love to come again.

  • Julie's place is such a dream. After a long drive and a long day, Julie was a very warm and welcoming host. The location cannot be beaten, I wish we'd stayed for a month, not just a night. The kitchen was well equipped and we whipped ourselves us up a nice meal with no troubles. Truly beautiful part of the world - thanks so much Julie! Hope to see you again soon :)

  • Your own cottage in the Welsh wood! A vacation from the vacation. What was it lacking? Only faeries and unicorns.

  • Lovely stay.

  • Julie’s place in Bethesda is very cozy, clean and thoroughly furnished. Nestled in a woodland location, the cottage offered a quiet and relaxing environment during the middle of our 3 week tour of the UK. There was much helpful information about interesting places for day trips and dining, as well as games and music. We would recommend Julie’s cottage to anyone visiting Wales. - Asta & Joseph

  • We loved it ! We were looking for a quiet "bolt hole " away from it all and certainly found what we were looking for . Clean , comfortable and stylishly decorated . Brigid made us feel very welcome and the rooms were lovely and warm when we arrived .

  • Beautiful cottage in lovely farm grounds. Charming and friendly host. Really gorgeous place to stay. Beautiful natural setting with birds at the windows and a natural haven.

  • We really enjoyed our stay in the old Carthouse. The building is amazing and the huge windows make it a lovely light space with an idyllic view of the farm. The surrounding area is lovely and we especially enjoyed canoeing down the Wye. Brigid and her family made us feel very welcome and we found the suggested activity booklet really useful.

  • This is a beautiful spot and the Cartshed is thoughtfully and tastefully kitted out. The old beams and full size windows were a firm favourite. It is a beautiful location, enabling you to walk from the house into lovely countryside further afield are river walks or equally, Hereford is conveniently only 10 mins away for a lovely small sized town. We would definitely stay again as it was so restful and we were made to feel very welcome. It was superb value for money and we feel really privileged to have found this place, Thank you Brigid and family

  • Lovely countryside retreat. High quality accommodation in a beautiful setting. Highly recommend walking in Aconbury woods 5 minutes away and the food at The New Harp Inn. Be aware that if you walk to the woods you may meet a small dog called Chips so make sure you walk back via Merrivale farm! Thank you Brigid.

  • Great accommodation, comfortable beds and very well equipped. Beautiful quiet location and dog friendly.

  • Brigid's place is a real hidden gem! Was perfect for our stay. We have two small children and a dog who needs plenty of walking. The accommodation is cosy and very well thought out. Underfloor heating was a lovely touch given we stayed in winter. It was in a very quiet setting which was great for us, only downside for some is that there is nothing really in walking distance. Didn't matter for us as we had a car though. We would certainly not hesitate to come back again!

  • Great stay. Nice place. Quiet and scenic x

Situated in St Dogmaels on a woodland hilltop overlooking breath taking views of the Cardigan estuary and close to local beaches and the Pembrokeshire coastal footpath. We look forward to welcoming you and sharing the many gifts of this place.
    This straw bale eco retreat home was self built between 2003-05 and generated much attention due to it's unique nature. Please read the full description before booking! It is a beautiful peaceful retreat centre, offering special time to relax in an untouched woodland upon a hill overlooking spectacular views of the Teifi estuary. There are various idyllic beaches within a couple of miles of here and many inspiring walks. We are two miles from the start of the Pembrokeshire coastal path. It is also an off grid home, powered by the sun and the wind and this is one of it's important features, giving one the opportunity to experience living with the elements and being powered by them. Low energy appliances may be used with awareness such as occasional laptops etc. (no hairdryers/ straighteners!) The Nature of this place does invite the visitor to just enjoy being switched off for a while and to enjoy the gifts of the environment. Downstairs you will find a large open plan kitchen and living room with a wood stove which heats the whole house. There is a downstairs bathroom in a rounded stone turret with sunken bath and rain water harvested toilet. Water is solar heated and back boiler heated in the winter. The house offers a long conservatory to enjoy the views. We have 3 delightful and gentle cats here in the house and then daphne the dog who will be with us in the eco lodge close by. We can arrange at times for the cats to be out of the house and use the conservatory for short periods. If you have serious cat allergies however this may not be for you. Upstairs is a large open plan room which offers itself as a luxury bedroom and studio for a couple or a space for family or a retreat space for a group of up to 8- 10 with low futon style beds. We have also now opened up the large beautiful attic bedroom as an extra with a double mattress and space for more. This is accessible by ladder. In the warmer months there is extra camping space in the woodland and a self contained eco lodge too. The woodland is terraced, with paths for visitors to explore and we are currently developing a forest garden. We also encourage artists and writers in residence to spend time here working in a natural and supportive environment on a project. We can offer subsidy for this also at times. Please note; this is a natural straw bale/ clay built home and we hire a wonderful cleaner to scrub the place... it will never be a bleached holiday home but it is clean by nature's standards and we use no chemicals in the process.. There are also spiders and insects as we live in a woodland...!
    The beauty of this place is all that Nature has to offer along with the gifts of many of the creative people living in the nearby village and surrounding area. There are many circular walks for which we can give directions. We are situated at the beginning of the pembrokeshire coastal path and close to an array of stunning beaches. Our local beaches Poppit and Mwnt have regular sitings of bottle nosed dolphins and seals. Cardigan town is a few miles away along the estuary and offers shops, restaurants, theatre, cinema, spa and a heritage centre. In the heart of the village is a ruined Abbey, a visitors centre and cafe. The village offers a good few pubs along the river, a wonderful deli with homemade produce and cafe. We encourage guests to visit our local produce markets and organic market gardens. Most foods can be bought locally. The gift of this home is that it is secluded in a woodland and yet a walking distance to the village estuary and beaches.
  • Rachel's place is for dreamers and people seeking peace. It is a space that is earthy and magical. An inspiration to people who love permaculture or strawbale built environments. This is not your run of the mill space ,this is a very special environment where artists could take a sabbatical,families can make believe they have come to live with pixies or jaded peace seekers can fill their tank and find faith in the world again. Anyone who loves Yoga will find the space is great to practice in. Beautifull views over Cardigan. Hosts tips are useful and spot on for travel itineries or restaurants in the area. House is warm and full of character and tranquil.

  • The house is absolutely incredible, a wonderful view, lots of space. The area has many wonderful walks. We cannot recommend this house enough, an unforgettable experience guaranteed! Rachel was also a wonderful host communicating quickly and being accommodating to our changing arrival time. Looking forward to when we can visit again!

  • Quiet Earth is an amazing space, both physically and metaphorically; a truly relaxing destination, giving your mind the 'space' it needs from frenetic everyday life. Myself and my group had a wonderful long weekend, filled with laughter, down-time and varied activities hosted by the warm and welcoming Rachel. Clean, cosy and full of character: Magical. We'll be back very soon!

  • Rachel was a great host and gave us a lovely warm welcome. She had even lit the fire all ready for our arrival. Her house is just beautiful and so interesting. We instantly felt relaxed and calm in our surroundings and our children couldn't wait to explore the house and surrounding woodland. Staying at Rachel's house is like an adventure! Even the walk up the hill from the car feels like walking on the page of a book. We loved the quirkiness, the peacefulness, the animals and reminder of what you really need in life. Thank you Rachel for sharing your amazing space with us.

  • A great location and a great host. The house is as beautiful as it is interesting. I was here for my birthday with a group of friends and each of us found something we could engage in within the space and the area. There are a lot of little details that really make this a special and relaxing place. Really loved everything about it.

  • A wonderful experience. Very restful. A place for contemplation. Big but welcoming home. Kitchen and bathroom a joy. Great local market. Thank you Rachel.

  • Rachel's Eco house is the most beautiful experience. We had such a relaxing weekend in nature, off grid with the friendliest cats. It's such a welcome contrast to hectic london life. Rachel is a wonderful host leaving organic home grown veg, welsh cakes , lots of useful local info and the widest most eclectic book collection. We would definitely stay again.

  • Loved every minute here. Rachel and Mark were amazing and very welcoming and told us everything we needed to know. We had their lovely cats staying with us which was great and the area surrounding is lovely for walks and pub lunches. Very nice and relaxing, highly recommended.

The breakfast was lovely, fine and delicious, it really gave us all the energy we need for the day.We did enjoy our stay with Kat. Recommend Kat's flat to everyone.

  • Kat was a lovely host. She was there to greet me on arrival, and answered all my questions. The room was warm, comfortable and not far from the city centre.

  • Great friendly host, great stay

    The Airy Attic room is a large modern-looking room, in a typical, Victorian town house, which is stylistically 'shabby chic'. It features a double bed for two. Enjoy freshly laundered pure white cotton sheets and pillowcases. Quirky family house, within walking distance to city centre, plenty of buses, great tasty breakfast (organic whenever possible), free wireless internet, fun landlady, and quiet street. We provide a good breakfast in the morning including tea, coffee, fruit, granola and oats, or toast and jam, peanut butter, etc. The home is on a tree-lined street close to parks and the city-centre. There is an enormous and open park a short walk away with the river running through it. There are many food options all within walking distance. There is a lovely gastropub opposite our home that is great for drinks and dinner. There is an excellent Indian restaurant close, an American diner, a Lebanese and a Thai place close as well. There are 2 cats roaming the kitchen & sitting room so please let me know if you are allergic. They are not allowed in the bedrooms. Cardiff being flat is great for cycling and there are bike hire places locally. We have quite a few maps of Cardiff that you can use. I have a great knowledge of the area and can help print out directions or even call you a cab to get to wherever you want to go.
    Friendly, mixed 'villagey' atmosphere.
  • Caroline is a very gracious host and a person, who pays a lot of attention to the quality of things in her house. The food is bio and delicious, the bed is soft and comfy. The house is situated in a lovely neighborhood, near to the park. There is also a great place to eat just across the street! The only unfortunate thing were the heaters, which sometimes went off in crazy hours. Other than that, Caroline's house is great, we hope to be back!

  • I was made to feel very welcome and completely at home for my stay at Caroline's, which provides a very cosy environment with a highly creative air about it. Caroline herself is the perfect host and great to converse with. The room was brilliant to stay in and the bed the most comfortable I've slept in for a long time. The house, situated on a quiet, leafy side road, is very well located for access in and out of Cardiff, both coming in from the motorway (several minutes up the road) and for getting in to the town centre. I'd read reviews that included mention of Caroline's scrambled egg on toast and can attest to it's being an unmissable breakfast. I highly recommend a stay here!

  • Carloline was a warm and welcoming host; with a comfortable room on a quiet street that's conveniently located across the road from a good gastro pub.

  • This was my second time staying with Caroline. She is a very gracious host and the location is within walking distance to the city center. The attic room is large, comfortable, and private. I plan on returning in the near future. I highly recommend staying here.

  • Lovely big room. Comfy bed. excellent and convenient location. would stay there again. Thanks. Lee

  • Caroline is a relaxed and gracious host, who genuinely is interested in her guests, answering questions and giving suggestions, making you feel really welcome. The oatmeal milk for breakfast was a plus for me as it suited my dietary needs. Sydney the amazing talking cat enjoys cuddles and guarantees to leave no hairs on you! If you are travelling light then the attic steps are not a problem. This was my first airbnb experience and I am glad that it started with Caroline, whom I certainly can recommend.

  • Caroline is very friendly and nice. However the room is kinda messy and smelly.

  • In a pretty and leafy neighbourhood of Cardiff nestles the home of Caroline and her daughter Efa. You would hard pressed to find such a welcoming family with such a gorgeous house - none of this clinical decoration, it's a place full of warmth, an interesting and well-behaved feline, photos and curios that make the place feel instantly comforting. Can you tell I loved it? The attic room has amazing tree-filled views over Cardiff, the bed is soooo comfy and Caroline not only provides a high class tasty healthy brekkie, but along with Efa's tea, their conversation made it difficult to leave the kitchen! AND the place is immaculately kept. My only regret is that it was a bit soggy outside to check out the garden. I had an amazing stay, my first time in Cardiff was made extra-special by these ladies (and other resident AND neighbours!) - I felt I was a guest in a home, not a random stranger. I would stay again in a heartbeat. Fabulous. Completely fabulous in every way. Thank you millions Caroline and Efa! xxx :)

    My place is close to RHAYADER and THE ELAN VALLEY also ajoining THE GILFACH NATURE RESERVE. You’ll love my place because of the coziness, the peacefulness of been able to have the freedon to walk and explore our hills of mid wales, straight from your door..and only 45 mins to visit the seaside of Aberystwth.. My place is good for couples, solo adventurers, families (with kids), big groups, and furry friends (pets).
    ..PLEASE LET ME KNOW IF YOU REQUIRE THE HOT TUB in advance of booking your holiday due to the high demand on the hot tubs, i would need to make sure there is one available for you... so i must know prior to you booking ..Thank you x.....................The Hide Away Ranch is a unique and very fortunate place, it is situated in its own 400 acres of magnificent views overlooking the wye valley, it has been stated its like been on "top of the world" it rises up to 1400 ft on the tops, with amazing views, walks and rides, ideal for star gazing in the evenings and watching the sun setting over the rolling hills, while the wildlife is active all around you. You can ramble around the hills at your leisure finding all the sources of the lovely little steams which trickle down through our countryside., where many moons ago the pilgrims would walk to the source of these lovely crystal streams, to collect the so said" holy water" in the pilgrims ampullae. We have been very lucky in finding one ..Then to take the water back to heel sick people from their ailments. We are also neighbouring our local nature reserve, which has got nature trials and all the information about our native wildlife in our area, they also do childrens activities if you log on to the Gilfach Nature Reserve. You are welcome to bring your own mountain bikes, motor bikes, off road vehicles or even your horse, where you can go and enjoy the stunning views at your own leisure, or if you just want to chill,and sit out on the veranda with your glass of wine!! to watch the magnificent birds and wildlife go about their very busy lives. you are now, also able to hire a hot tub if you so desired at an extra cost from a little company in our local market town, they come out the day before you arrive set it all up for you to jump in on your arrival ..Please note.... the hideaway ranch is situated in the beautiful, countryside, there is no wi fi and you may find your phone signals are limited in areas, but the best of it is that you only need to go 10 mins down the road and you are back into (URL HIDDEN) you have the best of both worlds.. From today 5/5 /17 we are now very privileged to announce that our "Hide Away House" is now also up and running so we are now able to sleep parties of up to 16 people between the two dwellings ..
    Rhayader in Mid Wales we think is an unfound area, with having the stunning dams of the Elan Valley, where you can go pony treking, mountain biking, walking, fishing, canoeing off roading nature trials and activities for the children to learn about the countrysides of mid wales .. watch the red kites feeding without the hustle and bustle of too many people.. Its a must to visit place, with the very quaint 1600 c country inns for those lovely traditional welsh ales with the much tradtitonal Welsh Black Steaks enjoy xx
  • There is only one word to describe Suzanne's HIDE AWAY ranch, Beautiful. As soon as you drive up the isolated zig zag road to reach the cabin, you know you are staying somewhere special. Suzanne was quite simply the perfect host. Even before our arrival, she was in regular contact, making sure we were all set and suggesting local activities that we could partake in. She was there to greet us upon arrival and was so friendly and charming. She showed us around the ranch and informed us about local activities and places of interest. The actual ranch itself is stunning. It is incredibly spacious, sleeping up to 8 people and my bed was ridiculously comfortable, I slept like a baby. The back garden opens up to a surrounding of 400 acres of beautiful hills and landscapes. I don't think waking up to that view every morning would ever get old. You can also hire a hot tub from a local company which I highly recommend. They come the day before to set it up outside in a little hut so its nice and hot for your arrival. Both nights we all chilled in the hot tub watching the sun set and just admiring the views. During the day there are loads of things to do, Rhayader town is a 5 minute drive and has several nice pubs and places to eat. Elan Valley is a must and is so picturesque. We hired some mountain bikes and had a lovely bike around the Valley. Just make sure you keep your eyes on the track because the views are so mesmerising its easy to get distracted ha. One of the highlights was without doubt our Kayaking trip. We discovered Kingfisher Kayak & Canoe Hire located within Abermule (about a 45 minute drive away). For £20 you can hire canoes or kayaks and at your own leisure and pace, paddle down the River Severn. A few members of the group were a bit nervous at first but we were all put at ease and every single one of us loved it to bits. So as you can probably tell I absolutely loved this trip and I cant recommend Suzanne's ranch highly enough. I booked the trip for my 30th birthday celebrations and I couldn't have asked for a more perfect way to celebrate it. Memories to last a lifetime.

  • Lovely secluded little spot, the cabin has everything you could need...towels, kitchen fully stocked with pots and pans. Suzie is a friendly and charming host, and was easy to get in touch with and very helpful. The area itself is idyllic, with amazing views of unspoilt Welsh countryside. The nearest village has a few shops and cute little cafes and eateries that have Wi-Fi if you need it. Phone signal is limited, and interent connectivity virtually impossible to get at the cabin itself, but this was great because it felt like a real retreat from the pressures of city life! There are supermarkets within a 15min drive, and the coastal spot of Aberystwyth is a 40min drive away, well worth a day trip. Especially if you take the mountain route through the Elan Valley, which is worth a day trip itself for stunning views and some nice walks. The only thing I would say is, make sure your car can handle bumpy farm roads and high altitudes, my little 1L manual struggled a bit, almost burnt my clutch out reversing up a slope, and got a few scrapes underneath but nothing fell off thankfully!!!

  • Susanne's farm is a wonderful, special place to stay near Rhayader. Out in the country, fresh and beautiful. The cabin itself is spacious, comfortable, and has all the facilities except WiFi--cut the cord. Susanne could not have been nicer--she kept track of us, made sure we could find it (it is on the main road but it is a farm so marking is hard), and took care that we were well settled. All stars.

  • Suzanne was a very helpful lovely host. The area was absolutely beautiful and the cabin was lovely clean and cosy. Would definitely stay again!

  • This was a great getaway for the family with no wifi and being able to disconnect. Suzanne is also one of the best hosts I've had the pleasure to meet . Very comfortable beds as well. Would stay here again 100%

  • This was our first trip to Wales along with some friends and we couldn't have asked for a better reception and accommodation. The Hideaway had everything we could have wished for. Clean, well kitted out for self catering (two fridges ) and perfect for two families or a group of friends to share. Morning coffee on the deck with that amazing view is a must! To top all that our host Suzanne was simply lovely!

  • Fabulous cabin with gorgeous views of the valley below. Peaceful and lovely. Suzanne was really friendly sand helpful I would definitely recommend staying. We will be back! A+++

  • The cabin really is beautiful. A little hard to find. When on the a-road, the satnav will tell your you've reached your destination on the opposite side of the road. Keep an eye out for a sign advertising a log cabin for 8, and it's a steep turning. It really is a beautiful location, walks from outside the door, the town of Rhayader just a 10 min drive away and a nature reserve (well worth a visit) just a couple of minutes away. But apart from that there isn't much around. So if your looking for nightlife, this isn't the place for you. The cabin wasn't quite as isolated as I'd thought it would be from the pictures. It's on farm land, so tractors and cars drove past a few times a day, and the neighbours are always wandering nearby. The cabin was very well equipped and hot with all the heaters on too. We chose to have the hot tub hired for our stay which was great. It's not in the best location, between the cabin and an old building, but the hot tub was great fun and not too on show (although a few tractors did drive past while we were in it!) Suzie was a lovely host, very friendly and chatting, popping over to see us a few times. We'd definitely recommend if your looking for a break from your phone's and the Internet and to enjoy a bit of nature!

    Self-catering cottage in a small quiet Wye Valley village in in the hills above Monmouth. Set in 6 acres of woodland and hidden gardens. Large bedroom with king & single bed, lounge with log burner, TV & WiFi. Stunning large spa room with sauna, shower, jacuzzi & small toilet room. Kitchen with induction hob, grill and fan oven, microwave, washing machine and tumble dryer , separate bathroom with toilet.
    The cottage is very spacious and could hold many guests however it is configured for two or 3 . The very large spa room holds the double jacuzzi, sauna and shower and so provides a private luxury chill-out area. The large bedroom, lounge, kitchen, hall and toilet all have underfloor heating whereas the spa room has radiators. The modern TV has a built-in DVD player and some DVD's are available to view. We have now put a dedicated BT wi-fi router in the lounge.
    Whitebrook is a quiet unspoiled valley with the brook running down into the River Wye which lies at the foot of the valley about a mile or so from the house. There are walks everywhere either on the doorstep or further afield. Local attractions include Clearwell Caves, The Big Pit (Coal Mining Pit & Museum) and the Wye itself for canoeing etc. See our guidebook for further activities. A map of the local area is provided.
  • We had a fantastic weekend in this unique and cosy cottage. It truly is a home from home. Clive is a great host. The jacuzzi and sauna are an added bonus!

  • Great property, very spacious and clean! Would definitely visit again.

  • We had a fantastic one night stay at Whitebrook. Clive and his wife were extremely friendly and helpful - they were able to put up a sofa bed to allow 4 of us to stay and even drove us to the wedding we were attending. The cottage was beautiful, with a lovely bedroom and incredible hottub bath and sauna facility. I would definitely reccomendation this property to any groups, couples or families. A fantastic stay!!

  • Everything about this cottage was perfect. The grounds were stunning, fire was brilliant and the set up was perfect for all our needs (especially the jacuzzi)! Have already recommended it to friends and would happily return again.

  • Loveley place in a beautiful location. Fantastic views and very close to Monmouth town. The house is large with lovley wood burner for cosy night in. Such a nice treat to have the whirlpool and sauna. Great value for money. And friendly helpful hosts. Would definitely recommend. House was very clean and there was everything you could need.

  • The cottage is in an idyllic location for walking and there are many stunning walks in the area. It is a bonus not having to drive to "do a walk" and we walked about 12 miles along the valley/river from the doorstep one day which was glorious. The cottage itself lived up the reviews of other people who have stayed here and the sauna perfect for aching muscles at the end of the day. Thoroughly recommend it! One evening we took advantage of the cinema in Cinderford. If you like independent cinemas (originally built 1910) this one is particularly good and a bargain price of £3.50 at the weekend

  • I can't recommend this accommodation enough it was more than enough space for two to have a relaxing break away. Everything you need is within 15-20 minutes drive and the best bit has to be the jacuzzi bath. Thank you so much to Clive and Katalin for an amazing break

  • All-round excellent experience! The house and surroundings were lovely, and the host was extremely friendly and knowledgeable about the area while also giving us our privacy. I would love the chance to stay here again in the future :)

Characterful local market towns - Ludlow, Montgomery, and Bishops Castle. Private decking for sundowners. One well behaved dog by prior agreement only, if kept downstairs and off the furniture!
    Blue Barn Cottage combines exposed beams with a contemporary feel, it's a simple, clear space, airy and yet cosy. The double height sitting room is light and has great acoustics. The view from the bedroom is spectacular - you can look out at the hills and the night sky through a huge triangular gable end window while you lie in bed. The new super king Zip link bed can be made up as two singles with advance notice.
    A beautiful upland area with fantastic views and walks, great birdwatching, starry dark skies. Friendly down to earth locals, very few tourists. The Marches is a well kept secret.

  • Beautiful cottage in a lovely spot! The cottage is very spacious, clean and has everything you need. The views from the bedroom are spectacular and we also enjoyed the outdoor terrace, perfect for a glass of wine watching the sunset. We'd definitely come back again!

  • We had a lovely time at Blue Barn Cottage, the perfect weekend away!! The barn was full of charm and character, amazing views and the woodburner was very cosy! Host provided everything we needed and we had a great weekend exploring the surrounding area!

  • My boyfriend and I spent 4 nights at Blue Barn Cottage and absolutely loved it! Sian was a brilliant host and made us feel very comfortable. The barn is beautifully refurbished and we enjoyed being there as much as our time out and about. I was anticipating it being cold as it's such a big space but it remained very warm and cosy even through the night. The barn is in a brilliant location and we had lots of lovely walks in the area. There's a folder full of tips and places to visit nearby which we found very helpful. We loved our stay here and can highly recommend it to others that might be considering. Thanks Sian!

  • Absolutely perfect, very welcoming host and the hamper with freshly laid eggs, homemade jam and bagels was icing on the cake. The photos do not do the cottage justice, it is very comfortable and the open fire makes for a very toasty bedroom too. Sian is very helpful and is more than happy to impart knowledge of walking routes or anything else that you might need to know. Cannot recommend enough - we were even luckier to catch the sun in March too!

  • We had the most relaxing time staying in blue barn cottage. Sian and Ian were really welcoming and accommodating. The cottage is warm and cosy and had everything we needed; great shower, washing machine, wood burner. Sian and Ian were so helpful in providing local information and mountain bikes routes which we look forward to doing next time. The scenery in this area is stunning and we had some lovely walks and bike rides. No negatives other than the kitchen could do with some bigger pans/ sharper knives, but this is a very minor thing. Would highly recommend, we will definitely be coming back. Thanks so much!

  • We stayed here in October and were a little apprehensive about the weather, but in fact we had really good weather all through our stay so we were able to take advantage of many of the walking and sightseeing opportunities presented by the area. After days out on the Longmynd and the Wrekin and trips to Ludlow and Shrewsbury, we came back to the very comfortable cottage, lit the wood burner and cooked a nice meal in the well-equipped kitchen. We became virtual locals at the Miners' Arms down the road! The views from the bedroom were stunning. Sian was a very friendly but unobtrusive host, who gave us good advice and provided some very useful maps and guide books. We would have no hesitation in recommending Blue Barn to other AirBnBers.

  • We had a lovely experience - the barn was clean, the wood burner was amazing - the place was everything we hoped for - we will most certainly be back again! Sian was also very friendly and a pleasure to deal with.

  • We couldn't fault Blue Barn in any way. The cottage is just stunning and so peaceful. The views are stunning. It feels so remote yet there's a very well stocked supermarket just down the road. There's heaps to do close by. And Sian was a wonderful host, both before arrival with helpful responses to queries and while we were there with local info and help getting the fire going. We'll hopefully be back!

  • Amazing place, very relaxing and comfortable and easy access to hikes and small pubs. Ideal for a break or getaway as a couple or with family. The hosts were so welcoming!

  • Brilliant place. Host is a top man.

  • We had a lovely relaxing break. We were made to feel very welcome and the cottage was clean and homely, even fresh welsh cakes greeted us! The hot tub was lovely and the views were beautiful. Definitely go back

  • Mez's place is one of a kind, completely secluded, peaceful and with amazing scenery all around. From the moment we arrived to when we left we loved it and couldn't recommend this place enough. The views from the lodge are breath taking, and spending our time out on the balcony over looking the Welsh countryside whilst BBQing lunch was definitely one of my favourite memories. We had such a great sleep in the comfy bedding with no noise whatsoever to disturb us. It's definitely a place to get away from the loudness of a city or town.

  • This was by far the best experience ever! I can't say enough about it. Mez was so accommodated and thoughtful. The place was (URL HIDDEN) beautiful it's hard to take it all in. I recommend making sure you plan enough time to spend here!

  • When asked what he wanted to do for his birthday, he said relax... that is exactly what we did! It was honestly perfect from start to finish- From the moment that we went into the lodge to the moment that we left we felt so relaxed and unwound. we loved the welsh cake with the candle in for Martins birthday and we certainly made the most of the hot tub whilst we were there! Mez was a fantastic host and we had the perfect level of communication with him whilst we were there! We are already looking at when to plan our next trip back! The pictures of this place really don't do it justice! Thank you so much! Sophie and Martin Sophie and Martin

  • Fantastic stay! Mez was so welcoming and friendly and went above and beyond to make our stay enjoyable. We loved the hot tub and the actual chalet was gorgeous. Can't wait to visit again!

    Llandeilo, Wales, United Kingdom

    A truly unique place to stay. The Jetstar is a first class plane that would have carried up to nine passengers. Built in the seventies it retains a most of the original features including a lit up bar area. It appears to have crash landed and on the back is a double bedroom in the style of a first class ships cabin. There is a loo and cold water basin on board the plane and the cockpit has an xbox with some flight games. There is a well equiped shower block on site with hot showers and fridges
    The cabin consists of double bed, there is a single bed behind the cockpit but this is only 5'7" or 170 cm which is fine for a lot of adults but not all. There is also a leather sofa on the plane which is 6'4". It may well be suited more for a couple or two adults and two children. There is a loo on board and cold water only sink for brushing teeth etc. The cabin and the cockpit are powered by mains electricity however the fuselage has the planes original lighting and is powered by car batteries and should be used economically. However there is a double plug with usb ports which lamps can be plugged in. A blue tooth compatible CD and radio is mounted in the main fuselage.
    South Pembrokeshire is popular in holiday seasons as it has so many great sandy beaches and clear sea. This campsite is away from the crowds, in a quiet rural area with fields, farms and country houses. It's easily accessed by a lane or two from the road to Tenby. South Pembrokeshire is popular for visitors and holiday makers, in season the towns can be busy but our site is like a retreat. Lots to do for children, activites and adventure theme parks are close by. Great for history buffs with Castles and historical places of interest dotted around. If you like hiking, the Wales Coast Path offers great walks and views.
  • Fabulous experience, the Jetstart is one amazing bed for the night and it was huge fun to be amongst the outrageous opulence of the 70's great and good. More fun still, to climb into the cabin, make up and imaginary pre-flight checklist (although the official one is there too), sliders to full power and then play the xbox which is installed in there somehow. So this was my review of the jet star, but listen up all review reading folk, Toby and Tiff have much more to offer than just the jet! Amazing Yurts vans and domes in a beautiful quiet space with facilities that seriously cater for everything - this is one well thought out place and they should be proud of what they have acheived- not to mention the imminent arrival of the flying saucer.. omg we will be back.

  • Toby is a superb host - nothing is too much trouble. The site is immaculate and very thoughtfully equipped. And you get to stay in a private jet! Completely unique - highly recommended.

  • Great experience in the Jetstar. My two-year-old loved playing in the cockpit and it was so nice sitting in the fuselage having a drink in the evening. Decent facilities and host Toby couldn't be more accommodating while leaving us to discover the excitement of the plane ourselves. Great destination for plane mad kids and close to the beach, Tenby and holiday attractions.

  • Fab Querky Stay in a lovely part of the world, Toby's a really nice chap... Our 7 year old was in Aeroplane Heaven

  • Brilliant idea, well executed. The kids thoroughly enjoyed it and spent hours playing in the cockpit. Toby was an excellent host, very attentive and responsive. The location couldn't have been any better, close to so many great beaches, Tenby, Pembroke and kids attractions like Hethertons, Oakwood, Folly Farm etc.

  • Great location and fab experience .

  • The Jet Star is definitely one of the most unique glamping experiences available in the UK. I booked for my partners birthday as a surprise and Toby and family made it extra special. Communication before the visit was quick, clear and helpful. On the day Phil was very welcoming and showed us around the site. The facilities are very luxurious and kept to a very high standard. Phil also showed us around the accommodation and explained the history behind the Jet Star. This is a must see for any aviation enthusiasts! All the original features have been kept just the way they were in the 1970s. We had our dinner around a campfire and a lovely sleep in the comfortable king size bed. Looking forward to the UFO themed accommodation and can't wait to rebook with the rest of the family. We would highly Apple Camping to everyone. Thanks again Phil and Toby!

  • Toby was really accommodating and helpful and he has worked so hard to create an amazing space. Looking forward to going back!

  • On our way home from a two night away and we couldn't be happier. From the moment we booked till now we have received nothing but great care. Both Jacqui and John were there on hand, just in case we needed them, specially when we were having slight issues with lighting the fire- John (even though they were on there own little getaway) called and gave us step by step directions on how to get it working! Had a great breakfast selection, comfy bed and Even on check out, Christmas morning- they both came out to bid us fair well which was so lovely. Stunning location, beautiful house and amazing hosts- can't fault anything. We will be back sooon x

  • Beautiful, peaceful place to escape to! All exactly as described but with added bonus of a warm welcome, super-cute dog to play with if you like and very generous supplies of tea, coffee, wine, cheese etc. Perfect setting - great to have a river AND a canal on the doorstep. Very peaceful but not remote. Jacqui could not have been more helpful or welcoming but at the same time, gave us all the privacy we needed to enjoy our all too brief stay.

  • This is the prefect place to spend you weekend or longer exploring the Brecon beacons. Jacqui is a wonderful host who is very helpful in advising places to go and visit The breakfast was the perfect start to our days knowing that we had the lovely warmth of the log burner to retreat to at the end of it. Perfect.

  • Lovely self contained converted outbuilding. Fabulous location for walking from your doorstep and in the rest of the stunning brecons. Great local pub 3 mins walk away. A very nice stay was had in this cosy , clean and very comfortable cottage. Hosts were extremely accommodating and I would definitely recommend to others .

  • Had a really lovely stay here. Jacqui was an excellent host, she provided loads of yummy food and drink and lots of local knowledge. The apartment is beautiful too. Honestly couldn't have been better

  • A perfect experience - was lovely to meet Jacqui at the beginning of our stay; she made us feel very welcome. She also recommended a book that described some walking routes around the area - we used it and had the most amazing day trekking around the Beacons. Met some friendly sheep and ponies. The apartment was clean, in a great location and with all the bits and bobs we needed. The river running outside is idyllic. We want to come back soon - thanks for everything!

  • Spent a lovely week at the apartment, very peaceful and a lovely place to unwind and forget about work. The apartment was comfortable clean and we were looked after very well. We wanted for nothing and anything we thought we may need was supplied without hesitation. Jacqui was an amazing host thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

  • Wonderful location, accommodation exactly as described and it is comfortable luxury. Great bed and great sleeps. Hosts were excellent, available helpful and not intrusive. An excellent mini break. Local area worth exploring too, good for walks, sights and culture. All in all we loved it.

  • The caban is really beautiful and cosy! We enjoyed our stay. Everything was very clean. We didn't meet Debra but the contact via email was very friendly. Thank you for everything! We can recommend to stay at the caban.

  • Delightful and very comfortable accomodation with easy parking.. Complete privacy,good internet access and Sky TV. The location is delightful but we were working & had no time to explore.

  • Listing was as stated, Debra was lovely, really enjoyed our stay

  • The cabin is in an excellent location - it's just a minute or two walk to the beach, and a few minutes walk to the town. The cabin was so warm, cosy and so inviting it is a true home-from-home space. Debra was friendly, helpful and communicative. I've been visiting Saundersfoot for over 20 years, and the cabin is easily the most inviting and comfortable place I've stayed at.

  • this quaint, cozy cabin is as pictured and described ~ clean, bright, quiet, comfortable. it was a fine place for us to begin our exploration of the pembrokeshire coast path. an easy walk down the hill to town, where we found yummy vegetarian options for dinner and breakfast. (and a brisk climb back up post-dining!) we did not interact with the hosts during our brief stay ~ debra mentioned being away ~ but all communications before our stay were clear and timely. we would have been glad for more time in our calendar to settle in both inside and on the porch. a lovely spot!

  • Great location and lovely accommodation. Many thanks x

    Steven & Seki2016-03-12T00:00:00Z
  • The Caban was fantastic, in its own secluded area.With a pretty porch and a bit of garden space. Inside there was everything we needed for a long weekend. It was clean and nicely furnished, nicer than my flat! We didnt meet Debra, but she contacted us via email before we arrived and stated she was available, should we need anything. there was also an extensive welcome pack, with lots of information on the local area and tips of what to do. Went to the local beach for a swim a couple of times - 5 min walk across the road, along a lane and down some stairs. Only 10-15 min walk down the fairly steep road into Saundersfoot centre. There you will find a shops, pubs and restaurants. The Caban is also short drive from Tenby, a busier seaside town. A few castles and other tourist attractions. Also less than 30 min to the beautiful Barafundal bay! Which has a lovely beach!

  • The house was amazing - very secluded but just what we wanted. Dorian was very helpful - lots of information is provided at the house on nearby recommendations and he is quick at replying. We loved our stay here and will definitely come back again soon. P. S. would recommend Mwnt and Penbryn beach

  • The house is stunning and Dorian made us feel very welcome - not least when we couldn't get the hot tub to work and he popped round to fix it. The hot tub is lovely and the wood burning stove is a treat. It's properly in the middle of nowhere and is the perfect place to escape to! Bear in mind that there's no wifi, though, and bad phone reception. Bring books!

  • A secluded minimal cottage. Rather primitive in terms of facilities ( no dishwasher and no obvious way of altering heating). Nice enough decor but a bit too spartan for our tastes

  • We stayed for a long weekend with our dog, Pepper, and we had a fabulous time. The location was stunning and it was so luxurious to have the hot tub ready for us to get in whenever we liked! If you have a dog we would recommend the park/castle walk in Newcastle Emlyn, and also the beach and coastal walk around Llansteffan!

  • Very nice stay, the cottage was a relaxing, comfortable place to be, the hot tub was the icing on the cake! Would definitely come stay again in the future.

  • Thanks for a wonderful stay in the cottage. On arrival I couldn't believe the entire building was for us, with no other house's close by. It was bliss in the hot tub with clear stary sky's or with cold rain on your face. The place had a minimilst modern design with the old cottage roots complementing each other nicely.

  • A lovely isolated cottage to get away from it all, very private and lovely views. Exactly as described and the instructions on how to find the cottage and it's amenities were spot on. Ideal layout for our dog and a very relaxing break. Barefundel Bay is well worth a visit lovely beach and scenic coastal walks

  • Great remote location for a getaway

    Relax in our garden house in rural Shropshire. You'll be greeted by curious cats and chickens...and probably Allan and me. There's some fabulous walks, a lovely local and some pretty market towns all within easy reach. There's also plenty to read and lots of interesting CDs to play if you prefer.
    Our fabulous wooden chalet is completely self contained...and you can come and go as you please. The chalet comprises a bedroom, a shower room with a loo and a living room. There's also a small kitchen area with a fridge, microwave and sink. The bed is a double bed and our chalet is most comfortable with one or two guests. There's a bed settee in the living room if you do need it. We like reading and listening to music so you'll find lots of books, and a wall of CDs in the living room. We can guarantee there'll be music that you've never heard before there. You are, of course, welcome to play the music and read the books but please don't be tempted to take any with you when you leave. There's no TV, but there's WiFi. Oh, and do look up...we hope you like our chandelier.
    Snailbeach is small lead mining village in the heart of the South Shropshire hills. The miners have long since left, but the Victorian buildings still stand and are looked after by the Shropshire Mines Trust. From Snailbeach you can explore the Stiperstones, try some splendid real ale in Bishop's Castle or visit Shrewsbury's shops. Or you can throw caution to the winds and go mountain biking. Bring your own bike! Shropshire is such a beautiful place it's hard to know where to start describing the best bits. Come to stay, tell us what you like best and we'll point you in the right direction. Do try to visit our local pub while you're staying, it's great. You'll find some leaflets about the local area and a very fine book written by a local chap detailing walks all over the county. Check out Elsie's walk...she was the village post lady and her daughter lives just across the road. If you're into knitting, there's a Knit'nNatter at the pub on a Tuesday morning (with cake) and some fantastic guerrilla knitting in Bishop's Castle. And there's also a very good Morris dance team there too...
  • We spent one night at the chalet and really enjoyed our stay. The chalet is fully equipped with everything you need and there was a lovely welcome pack waiting for us. We also took our laptop to watch a dvd. The hosts responded to my messages quickly before our stay and made us feel very welcome even joining us for food at the local pub and driving us back after our long day of walking. The surrounding area is very beautiful, we would definitely stay again.

  • Had a wonderful stay here. Genevieve is lovely, the chalet is an amazing place to stay and it's in a really nice quiet area. Would definitely stay again!

  • Had a lovely, wintery weekend at Genevieve and Allan's chalet. Enjoyed exploring the local countryside from the doorstep and having some down time in the chalet in equal measure. We were very comfortable and greatly appreciated the extra touches such as dressing gowns in the room, lots of local information and breakfast which made the stay all the more enjoyable. Thanks!

  • The chalet is in a delightful location - off the 'main drag' which means absolutely no traffic noise and just the sound of sweet british birds singing in the morning. It's situtated in a lovely Genevieve's English cottage garden at the back of a traditional miners cottage, right next to a wood. It was perfectly clean, with lovely feather duvet, pillow and a comfy bed. Genevieve went the extra mile with flowers on the dresser, chocolates and muffins on the table, and milk, coffee, fresh bread, jam and cereal for the breakfast. We slept wonderfully.

  • Great hosts. Lovely comfy stay, looking fwd to next visit...

  • We booked a night at Genevieve's at the last minute and were absolutely delighted! We arrived when Genevieve was at work but she had left the chalet set up for us with a welcome note. The setting is incredibly peaceful and the mine next door is great for exploring. The chalet is the perfect relaxing getaway. Genevieve has thought of everything! There's plenty of books and music, toiletries, fan heaters, extra pillows! We couldn't wait to tuck into the jams for breakfast the next day! Milk, bread and butter were also kindly provided. We met Genevieve the next morning (and her wonderful cats too!) and she was lovely. This is what Airbnb is all about! A unique getaway at a very reasonable price with the chance to meet some lovely new people! Thank you for having us and we hope to see you again in the not too distant future!

  • We only stayed here for an evening, but we would recommend this place to anyone! It was a lovely place to stay. And although we didn't manage to meet Genevieve, she put so much care into our stay. We arrived to a personalised letter explaining everything that we would need. The place was very clean, and stocked with loads of little things that most people would forget. There's even some emergency pantyliners (for us girls) Thank you for a lovely stay! Hopefully we can come back, meet you and spend some more time in your beautiful escape!

  • A great setting for relaxing and walking. Genevieve and Allan were perfect hosts. The welcome package was lovely, with fresh bread, homemade marmalade and jam, butter and milk. Oh and muffins too. If you want peace and quiet and don't mind the cockerel and chickens Then it's just the job.
