"We’ve just arrived home after an amazing weekend and I want to go back!! The beautiful cottage (Kite) was very spacious with a large living room, kitchen and dining area. The bedrooms were very clean and comfortable, with plenty of extra bedding. The farm is extremely peaceful and set in the beautiful countryside. I loved sitting in the garden during the day, watching the wildlife and at night you can see every star as there’s no light pollution from surrounding villages. Despite being a hen party, Lucy made us feel very welcome and encouraged us to enjoy ourselves, which we most definitely did! Everyone enjoyed so much we’re already planning on returning with our families and dogs 😊 the nearest shop is a 15 minute drive away and the nearest pub/cafe is 20 minutes away. However, we didn’t need to leave the estate during our stay. We had a lovely bbq (built in) and the hot tub was just the icing on the cake! I was very sad to be leaving this morning and can’t wait to go back! Thanks Lucy and John xx" Guests, South Wales, May, 2018
"Thank you so much for the stay. We have had the best weekend and everyone has fallen in love with the place. Everything was spotless. We all loved the walls we did and had a lovely time. I hope everything was left as it should have been. We will definitely be back.Thanks again." Guests, Wales, May, 2018
"Absolutely fantastic accommodation. Lucy and John are outstanding hosts. The location is stunning too. Thank you for a wonderful time.” Guests, England, April, 2018
“We had a wonderful time staying in your lovely cottages. All our guests thought that they were very comfortable, well equipped and excellent value for money. We found your website very helpful in that it made it clear that hen parties were welcome and we were able to arrange activities and catering from the companies that you recommended. I will certainly recommend you to anyone looking to book a hen weekend in Wales." Guest, Wales, February, 2018
"Just to say how much we enjoyed our stay at Merlin Stable Cottage over
Christmas. Thank you so much for the beautiful Christmas tree, it made us
feel just like we were at home celebrating. The cottage was absolutely
perfect and so comfortable, we cooked a lovely Christmas dinner in the well
equipped kitchen, our two dogs loved all the walks in the forests as we did,
we went to Crychan forest on the Wednesday afternoon and walked in a few
inches of snow!! There was no snow when we came back to the cottage.
We hope you found that we left things clean and tidy, we make a point of
doing so as we are grateful that accommodation like yourselves allow us to
bring our much loved pets." Guests, England, December, 2017
Thanks for a super duper weekend. We had a great family get together. Great family memories. Guest, Wales, June, 2017
Lovely cottage, everything you could possibly want from a countryside cottage. The cottage itself is a little way away from any shops, restaurants or pubs. Absolutely fantastic stay, lovely property. Guest, London, November 2016
John & Lucy were fantastic, as was their house. The cottage was beautiful in a lovely quiet country setting. It was equipped with everything you could possibly want & more; from games to cooking equipment. Everything was spotless on arrival and in great condition. Lucy and John were on hand before & during our trip to answer any questions we had. We were 3 couples looking for a relaxing fun get away & this was the PERFECT place. Can't recommend enough!
Thank you so much for letting us stay in your lovely cottage. We had a fabulous time and would highly recommend it to others. We loved how well equipped everything was, how clean and how well everything organised. Thank you! Guest, London, October 2016
We were given a very warm & friendly welcome by both John & Lucy as soon as we arrived. They explained a few bits to us and then left us to enjoy our break. The accommodation was better than expected with plenty of pots, pans, cutlery, bedding... etc. We had 4 very happy children who loved the space, especially the hot tub! There is a bookshelf in the lobby of the property which is brimming full of tourist info, book & games. Everything worked perfectly with the exception of the internet, which was a bit slow at best, but that wouldn't put me off staying here again or indeed recommending this place to anyone. In summary, a big thumbs up to John & Lucy for such a brilliant place!!
It's set in acres of farmland in a rural area. The property itself is very modern. Guest, East Anglia, September 2016
Wonderful cottage with all necessities covered for a memorable stay! Perfect location and so easy. Big thanks to John and Lucy :) Guest, London, August,2016
Beautiful cottage in a beautiful farm. The bedrooms are clean and good in size. Well equipped kitchen and spacious living room. Guest, Saudi Arabia, August, 2016
We were made to feel very welcome and the homemade jam pie was fantastic! A lovely cottage in a lovely location! A perfect area to have breakfast outside in the sunshine with a BBQ located right next to the house. Highly recommended! Guest, London, August, 2016
The house is light and spacious with a large family sized kitchen equipped with everything you could possibly need. The hot tub is well maintained and clean. A good aspect of this is that you can book times for usage insuring that you get privacy from other guests. The location is great with stunning scenery. Just a ten minute drive into the local town Llandovery which is charming and has nice places to eat. We had a really nice stay and would definitely book again. Great value for money. Guest, Eastbourne, August, 2016
the hists was very nice and friendly and was accessible if need them for anything. however we did not have to trouble our hosts due to the accommodation being nice and tidy. nice place to stay and relax. and a nice apple pie welcome us which was a very nice touch and enjoy the apple pie Guest, Birmingham, July, 2016
John and Lucy have a lovely cottage here in beautiful Welsh countryside. A spacious and well equipped kitchen, everything was spotlessly clean, nothing was too much trouble and our stay was very comfortable. Wish we could have stayed longer. Fantastic location and very clean, well laid out accommodation. Guest, Pen-ffordd, July, 2016
The cottage was perfect for our needs and nestled in a pristinely beautiful spot. We made a last minute booking and were delighted to find the cottage surpassed all our expectations and that everything concerning the booking was very straight forward. The hosts were very helpful and have finished the properties to a very high standard. Thank you. Guest, England, July, 2016
Had a lovely weekend staying at the Peregrine cottage. Lovely accommodation, hot tub was fab, had some lovely walks of the local area. Would definitely return.
