Overall rating: 4.9 out of 5
 Enjoyed our short trip enormously. Lovely room- only could not give a 5 due to size- but that is not a criticism- that is the layout of what after all was a cottage to begin with- it is the way it is. Lynne and Aled had done a fantastic job, beautiful room, lovely attention to detail (even down to a "Davies tartan" who would have thought.) Clean and welcoming. All the facilities that could be provided were. Lovely breakfast- even noticed the good quality cooking oil.
