The cottage is adjacent to the owners own Grade II listed residence which dates back to the 17th century.\nPippins has an ‘upside-down’ living arrangement and has been lovingly furnished by the owners. The open-plan upstairs living room and kitchen area overlooks the surrounding hills making the most of the wonderful views. Downstairs there are two bedrooms one with en-suite facilities and an additional shower room.\nGuests will appreciate the private garden overlooking the open countryside with access to a public right of way leading down the hill to the 13th-century Cefnllys church.

    A beautiful upside-down cottage in the middle of nowhere, perfect for relaxing and getting away from it all. Comfortable and clean, with stunning views, and the owners could not be more helpful. Our second time here, and it won't be our last!! And badgers came to visit.



    out of 10

    Very clean and immaculate accommodation more like a high quality hotel. Excellent facilities. Location so peaceful with lovely walks.



    out of 10

    We had a perfect week at Pippins. The house is beautifully presented and has everything you could need. It has a lovely homely feel and amazing views. There are lots of lovely walks on the doorstep and lots to do in the surrounding areas.



    out of 10

    We wouldn't hesitate to recommend Pippins as a fantastic base for exploring Wales. A beautifully kept property owned by a pleasant, friendly family. Our only slight negative was having to drive a little to reach somewhere to eat out. Otherwise perfect.
