Excellent comfortable holiday secluded area river running through the gardens enjoyed by kids and dog

A trusted customer - 31st January 2018

thank you for our lovely week at the Dairy House. The setting is idyllic, quiet and just the place to switch off and relax. The kids and dog enjoyed playing in the river and on sunny days we didn't venture far from it. On rainy days we snuggled up with a book in front of the fire when we weren't exploring the local area. Now back to the real world fully refreshed !

We would like to thank you for our pleasant stay in your beautiful house. This is our first visit to Wales and we got the chance to to get some first impressions of how lovely Wales looks like - all the old castles, the green nature, the beautiful gardens and so on I'm pretty sure we'll come back again. I think we never have been in such a peaceful and quiet place before. The site here is so extraordinary.
