Another great stay at Bedw Cottage

After three years, we returned to Bedw Cottage for another great stay, this time in winter. Pity it was only two weeks; we could have stayed forever. The cottage was cosy and very comfortable. The scenery didn't disappoint with a bit of snow on the hills creating a postcard setting - a novelty for Georgia who had not seen snow falling before. Rebecca and Owen were terrific hosts again, very generous with their time and hospitality. Can't wait to come back again.
