We loved this place - such a cosy sanctuary, with everything you could want provided and so many little personal touches, I didn't want to leave! I'd definitely stay here again and recommend it highly to others. We did Sian's recommended tour as well, and all her tips were great.

The house is absolutely amazing! Sian has also put so much love into making the place feel like a home, there are so many extra touches that are really thoughtful. The gentle sound of the stream and the really comfy bed are great for a restful nights sleep. There is also a really detailed guide to the area left for you to read so we found some great suggestions for things to do. The area is also beautiful and Sian was really helpful when we needed her. Sadly we had to leave early (for personal reasons) but I would love to visit again and would wholeheartedly recommend the place to anyone.

We had a really special time at Sian's place. A lovely retreat from busy city. The place is right next to a stream which can be heard from the rooms and lots of stars on a clear night. Lovely beaches a short drive away - we spent an afternoon in Mwnt which was beautiful. We really enjoyed making Christmas cards and gift tags in Sian's studio, mince pies, tea and fire - so relaxing. Highly recommended.

Cannot recommend this beautiful, cosy, tranquil little cottage highly enough. The area is stunning and everything was thought of to make it a relaxing and comfortable break.

I cannot recommend Sians place highly enough. The place is almost magical - you can listen to the rushing stream from the bedroom window or cook a feast in the little kitchen next to a roaring log fire. It is located about 20 mins from everything you need; and Sian has great tips of trips out and things to do. We will be staying again.
