Thank you for your review, we are delighted that the house was perfect for your large party.

David Corfield - 27th April 2019

Ty Hen Farmhouse was a very comfortable property to stay in for two families. There was everything we needed for a wonderful week in Wales. The decor was tasteful and cosy [on-line picures don’t do it justice) The position of the property allows for beautiful views and walks around the fabulous welsh coastline. We had a slight Issue with the heating/hot water which was sorted the next day. The property is listed as dog friendly with and enclosed garden, however, it was not secure which was part of the reason we chose this venue. The fencing has been updated since the photos were taken and a small/medium dog would have no trouble escaping which was a shame as our dog would have loved running around the large garden without having to be on a lead.

Thank you for your informative review, we are glad that you enjoyed your stay. We will look at updating the photos on the website. Whilst the garden is enclosed we never say a garden is secure for dogs as all dogs are different and can escape if they want to, but we will look at adding some text to make sure future guests are aware of this.

I prefer cotton sheets to polycotton especially in hot weather

Good house perhaps needs a bit of TLC - extractor fans in bathrooms not working, downstairs shower leaks, DVD player not useable.

B Johnson - 17th April 2018
