BEST HOLIDAY EVER ! I loved the canoeing and quad biking. Your kindness and hospitality is second to none. What a great week
Our 2nd holiday here and every bit as enjoyable and relaxing as before - if not more so because of the extra week! Thank you so much for your hospitality and genuine warmth. The children really loved the boat trip. Thomas caught his first fish which we think will be something he will never forget.
We had a fantastic holiday and we have been to loads of beaches including our favourites Tenby and Marloes. Although the surfing has not been at its best we all managed to stand up. Thank you for everything and the scones and jam you gave us.
We have had a fantastic holiday - something for everyone for 7-70. Thank you for organising fishing and the boat trip on the river. Thomas says "The fish I caught was delicious. it was the first time I had been fishing and my dad did not catch anything !"
One of the most peaceful places which we have stayed at with very pleasant and helpful hosts
A beautiful place, peaceful spot and a place that feels like home after just one week. Plenty of space for everyone - a brilliant base for our visiting family. Would definitely like to come back !
