We enjoyed our stay very much “The cottage was very comfortable, extremely well equipped and very clean and a good base from which to explore Wales. Rhoslyn had clearly put a huge amount of effort in collating information for her guests so there was a wealth of leaflets and folders to browse through.”

“Thank you very much Rhoslyn for your very kind hospitality. We have stayed here for work and we could not enjoy the beautiful Brechfa Forest as much as we wanted, but we enjoy a lot our stay in Penrhipyn Cottage. We were thousands of miles from our home in Spain and we felt like home. Many thanks again.”

“What a beautiful, well equipped cottage. The friendly owner has thought of everything from the fabulous welcome pack to the beautiful smelling bed linen. If you want to get away from it all but still be within easy reach of castles, beaches, good food etc. we recommend this cottage highly.”
