This is the most amazing place to visit . The view and setting is a total escape . You will never stay somewhere with a better view anywhere in the UK ! Really fabulous escape and the best place to relax . It was my wife's 50 th birthday and she will remember it for ever. House was homely , welcoming , and with the glass extension a great place to relax , with an eye on the view!. Rustic appeal which is what you look for in such a property . Truly truly memorable . A big Thankyou to the owners for allowing us to share the experience .

Thank you so much for your 5 star review, Moel y Geifr is located in such an amazing setting we hope your wife enjoyed her special birthday.
I appreciate that the rental price of the cottage reflects its location and view which were undeniably spectacular. However there were elements about the cotaage that were tatty or 'season weary'. The wicker chair in the bathroom was frayed exposing the metalwork frame. The blinds in the windows upstairs were in places stained with mould and dead flies. There were empty picture hooks on the walls in the en- suite bedroom. The white settee cover in the main sitting room was patched with large marks (pawprints? ) on the armrest. There was a huge beanbag in the sun room, also patched. No telescope in the sunroom as promised. When reaching into the airing cupboard to activate the boost button my husbands' arm knocked exposed wires on the tank. The wire cover was on the airing cupboard floor. The picnic bench and table outside was rotted and mossy. On the plus side we did find the cottage to be very clean. I have four cottage holidays a year, in Cornwall, West Wales and Scotland, and am of the opinion that I have realistic expectations about the quality of properties that I rent in relation to the cost. This was the first holiday I have had which started on a note of dissappointment. This experiance has not disuaded me from using Quality Cottages again and have already booked a property for March.

Thank you for your detailed feedback which is always useful to receive. Your comments have been passed to the owners. We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay in this lovely rural property.
It was reasonably comfortable in the house. Most areas were clean and well equipped, though the oven and cooking pots and trays were badly in need of a good clean. The heated towel rail in the ensuite shower room is not working. May I suggest a few more lamps in the main two sitting areas, as the lighting in those rooms is inadequate for reading during the evening. We were unable to get tv programmes in the garden room, and though I would normally put that down to my own inadequacies with technology, even my son, who is not inadequate in those areas, could not operate it to do more than play videos. One last thing, potential clients should be warned that the last cattle grid before the house is in a hazardous condition, with two bars on the point of collapse.

Goed uitgerust huis - fantastisch gelegen - adembenemende uitzichten!
Stunning location and views. There were a few minor issues with the property : despite paying £60 for heating the underfloor heating in the kitchen did not appear to be working and one tiny basket of logs supplied for the two wood burning stoves. Heated towel rail in ensuite not working properly. Television in conservatory not working ( no signal).
