Hen dy is a charming cottage in a beautiful location. However, I believe the description says it is detached, when in fact it is attached to another rental property (converted barn, I believe). The gardens adjoin and this means the back garden is basically off limits, with instructions to that effect, though the photographs of the cottage present it as viewed from the back garden in some pictures. The staircase is mentioned as a something of a problem - for us, active people of 69 and 74 it certainly was, and anyone less mobile would have found it impossible. My husband smashed his head several times - and on stone! Crouching down is the only way to ascend.The rent is high for such a property, which has a small bath (suited me, but not my husband) and only a shower head attached to the taps which could be useful for washing hair but not much else. Mari was a kind host, and in good weather one could have a memorable stay.
Lovely cottage full of character

Thank you for your review and recommendation.
If you've ever visited a holiday cottage before, you most likely have seen a guestbook in the property for guests to leave a review for others when they arrive. Each of the following comments was lovingly left by people just like you in the guestbook left at Hen Dy.
