Thank you Tanya for letting us stay in your home. My first word when I walked through the door was "WOW", I love this house! It's comfortable, has all the essentials that you need, the welcome pack and toiletries were most welcome, thank you. Hot tub used every day, peaceful and relaxing. Lots to see in the area, train up to Devils Bridge lovely at this time of year, so colourful. Went to Borth keeping to the road straight to the end is a nature reserve (sand dunes), stunning. Spent some time in Aberaeron, beautiful.
A fantastic holiday cottage in a lovely location that was well equipped. Our toddler twins loved the secluded garden, and we loved the fact that it was safe and secure. Hot tub is a brilliant add on in such a secluded location. Everything that a family of four could need for a relaxing holiday. With an owner, Tanya, happy to make us welcome and to accommodate our needs we can't thank you enough. I would highly recommend this cottage to anybody . Will come again!
Smolts Brook or the more traditionally named Nantygleisiaid, which is the name at the entrance and unpronounceable to the average English tongue, is a little hidden gem tucked away neatly but accessibly into the Welsh countryside, completely private from the sight and sound of the surrounding world, with its own garden in which resides a new and well maintained hot tub'. Open only to the sound of birdsong and the occasional narrow gauge train of the nearby Vale of Rheidol Railway, with its melodious clatter and haunting steam whistle, beckoning the listener to an earlier age. As, indeed, does the rest of the cottage, which has been thoughtfully and ingeniously decorated by the owner with an eclectic mix of old, new, industrial, ethnic (Welsh), homemade and recycled! We particularly liked the fact that we were contacted by the owner (Tanya), who lives nearby, before and during our stay and who was very attentive to our needs, made us feel very welcome and who obviously wanted us to enjoy what had, until recently, been her home. We found that the cottage grew on us over time and we were really sorry to leave when our time came like saying goodbye to an old friend! Would we come again YES. What more can be said.
We have had such a relaxing week. What an amazing place this is! A beautiful house with so many amazing touches and, of course, the hot tub. We've used it every day come rain or shine - a real luxury and such a treat to come home to. What we've seen of the area we've loved, but have to admit that this house is so great we've not worried too much about travelling far! Thanks Tanya, so lovely to be a guest of someone who truly understands hospitality.
Fantastic week in this beautiful house. Hot tub obviously the highlight at the end of the day. Lovely trips to Aberaeron and Bwlch Nant yr Arian to see the kites feeding. This house is like a boutique hotel! Thank you!
We've all had a fab time at Smolts cottage. Very comfy and welcoming. Lots of coastal walks and beaches to explore. Plenty to do and visit. We loved the bird song and the hoot from the steam train also. We would recommend to anyone. All the thoughtful goodies which Tanya left for us were much appreciated as was the sublime hot tub. Thanks indeed.
We have just returned home after spending a very relaxing week at Smolts Brook. The house is extremely well equipped and very comfortable - and a credit to Tanya the owner. We spent many hours relaxing in the hot tub....it was amazing:)....and we slept like logs! Thank you to Tanya for sharing her lovely home - we will definitely return in the near future. For good food and ambience: try the Y Ffarmers at Llanfihangel y Creuddyn - it's well worth a visit.
Back for a second visit, what a delight. Everything fabulous, even had sunshine! Will be back for a third visit next spring. Thank you Tanya.
Second visit and not disappointed at all. We love the cottage and the care that goes into ensuring we have everything we could need or want. Dogs love their walks on Borth beach. Had a fab time again and looking forward to returning. Thanks Tanya
What a fantastic week we had in this special place. We are besotted with the cottage and cannot wait to return. Our dogs have been in heaven, although there is no love lost between Penny and the toy sheep in the dining room, as she's spent the week growling at it! Can't wait to return! This has been the best holiday cottage we have ever stayed in - if only everyone was as thoughtful as you Tanya. Thank you for a fantastic week. Love, The Wilds x
A wonderful week in a charming cottage full of character. Tanya has thought of everything in terms of amenities and the decor is comfortable and stylish with some gorgeous quirky lighting. We felt at home as soon as we walked through the door. We all loved the hot tub, which is a great addition to the cottage. It's a definite 'recommend' from us.
What an amazing house! We both really really enjoyed staying here. We felt at home straight away the rooms are all so cosy. The décor in our bedroom was nice and calming and I slept like a baby all week! Kitchen is nice and clean and equipped with a fab selection of utensils and crockery for any kind of cooking and baking. What a lovely welcome with the hamper and flowers waffles are my favourite! The hot tub love, love, love it definitely one of the best features of the house. Really nice to have the privacy when in the tub. The lovely garden at the front of the house is very private and it's good to have the washing line in the back garden. The house has been decorated with quirky features around which make it very unique and stylish, and the curtains in every room are stunning. It is ideal for any weather and every season. Thank you so much for a lovely week, it has been a break from reality which we both needed. I'm gutted to be leaving!
Well I first spoke to Tanya a week prior to my visit, when she called to ask whether or not to decorate the house for Christmas. This was a lovely touch, Tanya was so accommodating and checked the booking and ensure we had a high chair & cot. We received a message to say 'Smolts Brook' was ready for us, which was very personal making it more exciting. The house is beautiful and has all the mod cons for an easy relaxing & comfortable stay. The Hot Tub & shower are my favourite bits but it was all lovely. We were always able to contact Tanya if we needed anything. Lovely visits to the beach near Borth & of course the Aberystwyth Promenade. Thanks again for a lovely Christmasy cosy break.
