    The house and the owner where lovely, only thing we think is needed is a TV in the master bedroom

    We really couldn't fault this place. We've stayed in lots of cottages over the years and this has to be one of the nicest: spacious, comfortable almost a home from home. If you like cooking, then the kitchen was one of the best equipped I've seen for a holiday cottage, so the box of kitchen stuff I usually bring was redundant Jackie couldn't have been more hospitable leaving us some lovely home-made goodies to enjoy plus bread, eggs and milk to see us through the first few days. We hope to stay again in spring next year.

    We had a lovely holiday at cyplau and would recommend the cottage to anyone. Jackie, the lady who owns the cottage was very friendly and helpful....thank you for the generous welcome pack and delicious home made cakes.

    From the initial phone call to Jackie informing of her of our arrival time to the time we said goodbye to her and Gracie we couldn’t fault the cottage. The cottage is in a lovely location for both those looking to visit the ‘seaside’ or walk in the hills. Everything has been thought of by Jackie, a lovely basket of goodies on arrival and even some lovely cakes!!! Gracie made herself at home and we all miss her. If what you are looking for is a ‘home from home’ base from which to explore this part of Wales you’ve found it. Nothing is too much trouble for Jackie and the cottage was exactly what we were looking for. With 2 adult ‘children’ there was adequate space and they could escape from the parents at every opportunity. The gardens are stunning and the cottage so very peaceful. We would not hesitate recommending this cottage.

    We initially booked this cottage based upon the existing high reviews. However, compared to the cottage we had stayed in the previous week, with a similar rating, it fell short of expectations. The cottage had an infestation of spiders and although modernised there were a number of short cuts such as the exposed fuse box in the kitchen and other areas. The plumbing wasn't great and the cleanliness in the kitchen [i.e. extractor fan was caked up with grease], which when used created lingering smells in the kitchen. The sofa had a few stains and wasn't inviting. As a consequence, we spent less time at the cottage than we would normally do. On a positive note the garden was very well maintained and there was an enjoyable walk at the back of the property.

    Good location for walking and for the beach. Friendly and helpful owner was there to welcome us when we arrived.
