      Why you love Hafod Wen
      It is the most wonderful house with one of the best views ever seen. Don't miss the train journey to Machynlleth - beautiful. Will see you again.
      Jan, Corde, Margaret, Esme
      We cannot start to tell you both how much our week here has been so wonderfully blissful. The wonderful welcome of fresh bread, milk and the home-made honey… is just amazing. Thank you so much. This house, the location and even the weather we’ve had this week has been blissful, relaxing and the best therapy for my husband, myself and our 3 dogs. This was our last chance of calm and relax before our first baby arrives in a couple of months, and we couldn’t have wished for anywhere more perfect. Thankyou, thankyou, thankyou
      Melissa and THerby
      Thank you for a fabulous holiday! We loved the amazing garden and the house is beautiful. We were lucky to have great weather. Thank you for the art lessons and your kindness throughout the week. Definately want to come back next year! Love Jemima

      Vera & David Snelson
      What a beautiful house, changing views every minute. Thank you for the welcome treats of bread, jam and honey – they were delicious. We enjoyed our walks to the beach – the weather did not put us off! The girls have been inspired to learn the piano now too. We will certainly come back – the summer must be amazing here. Thank you again

      The house is above expectations the view is breath taking and Jane & Reg were very nice and helpful . Every thing we needed we found in the house The house was very clean, comfortable and has easy access to the attractions in the area. The beach is 130 steps from the house but worth the effort. We had a wonderful time. Hafod Wen is at the top of my rental by owner houses list in the whole world . I will come back again and again.
