Many thanks Evan for a wonderful stay,once again. This is our third visit,and we were made most welcome,as usual!The weather was mostly kind to us,except for one day.We have had lovely walks, even found some new places to explore with our Border collie,Jess. We have had a fantastic holiday and hope to return later in the year.A home -from-home,so comfortable and cosy! Such a lovely place to chill out and relax.All the best Evan,see you soon!

Many thanks again.This is our second stay here,and have really enjoyed it.We went up the hill-it was tough-but worth it as the view was unbeilable.Our favourite beach was Aberdove because we like 'crabbing',caught60-70crabbs!
We will miss Cymro, we will come and say goodbye to him when we leave tomorrow,and I know I will cry again!It has been brilliant here, see you next year.

We have had a great family holiday here. Starting with a fabulous welcome-Easter eggs for the Kids and lots of nice Welsh treats. We loved the cottage,so spacious and everything we needed!Lots of lovely walks in the area and the beach in Borth is  just stunning -couldn't beat it( no need to travel to Devon& Cornwall any more!) We are leaving feeling very relaxed and really don't want to leave. Thanks to Evan for such a welcome stay. We are hoping to come back.xx

This is our first stay in the Cambrian Mountains - it is stunning. We've had a wonderful
relaxing week staying in this gorgeous cottage-one of the  nicest we have ever stayed in. It has everything you can wish for and more -so homely and spotless. The views are incredible and we were lucky enough to be able to sit outside for breakfast and late afternoon admiring the scenery and wildlife in front of us.

Diolch yn fawr iawn Evan. Hope the translation is correct. The cottage is spotless clean and very well equipped, we can not wait to come and stay again.

Brilliant, beautiful, lovely, amazing, fantastic stay in this cottage. Ourselves and our family most enjoyed the homely atmosphere and welcome here, I’m sure we’ll be back.

Gail and Ron Staffs.

Cannot tell you how wonderful this place is, we have stayed in quite a number of self catering cottages and this is by far the best, everything thought about, beautifully set out , to a high standard. Beautiful setting,we wished we booked 2 weeks not 1! Evan could not have done more for us and was a mine of information, and took the time to take us up to his property set in the mountains, oh my what a place!! We don't want to leave but we will be back. Thank you Evan & Carol so much for a wonderful week to remember!!
Ang, Ben & Mike Harper, Devon. 22/6/16

There's very little that one can add to what's been written already by others!!!Delightful hosts; clean, warm and spacious accommodation; superb views and lovely adjoining countryside. A real find. We will return.
The Jacksons, Cannock, Staffordshire. 13-20/5/16

Our first visit to the beautiful and not well known Cambrian Mountains. A fantastic cottage, warm and cosy with such friendly hosts, we would definitely return. The welcoming gifts set you apart from the competition. We had days out to Nantyrarian, plenty of mountain bike trails and walking trails. Evan thanks again for the insight to farm life in the area.

Dear Evan,thank you so much for such a warm welcome and the gifts on arrival,very much appreciated.The cottage is lovely and in a great location for exploring the surrounding area and the scenery is absolutely beautiful. We have had such a wonderful time,enjoyed Devils Bridge,Borth and Ynyslas beach flying kites with the children. BlackLion Talybont for food and then to YnysHir nature reserve. The children had great fun walking,exploring,going pond dipping and spending time relaxing as a family. We enjoyed the steam train and had a great out at Dolgoch Falls, stopping at Talyllyn lake,and on the way back visited Aberdovey Spending time in the cottage has been so relaxing and enjoyed quality time as a family together. We hope to come back. Thank for your hospitality.

A wonderful place to celebrate our anniversary. We can't thank Evan and Carol enough, lovely cottage and welcome to a part of Wales we had not visited. We would love to come back. Thank you so much for all your hospitality.
Jaequie, Steve, TJ, Trish, Steve, Northamptonshire. 4-11/6/16

Another relaxing stay in this gorgeous cottage, with a welcome to match the scenery. Our visit this time was for our wedding anniversary and we were greeted on the day with a beautiful bouquet of flowers, a lovely touch from fantastic hosts. Thank you Carol & Evan.
Ann & Steve, Nottingham 14/5/16

Excellent two week holiday. Beautiful scenic rural setting. Thanks for all the goodies on arrival. We were made very welcome by everybody and hope to return in the future! Cottage had everything we needed and we enjoyed all the nearby towns, beaches, lambs, tractors and steam trains.
Alastair, Joanna & Matthew Chipchase, Scotland. 30.4.16

Lovely much needed holiday in this fabulous cottage. Especially enjoyed the comfortable beds and night skies. Well worth the 5* rating - we couldn't fault it. Lovely hosts Carol and Evan made us feel very welcome and the goodies we found on arrival were a real treat. We ate breakfast outside watching the spectacular views nearly everyday. In all, everything we expected and more besides! We will be back again! Thank you very much.

It was a real pleasure to return to this beautiful cottage and to see it was as wonderful as the many other times we have stayed. We had a fantastic welcome and the cottage was decorated for Christmas - a brilliant sight! We had mixed weather but enjoyed long walks with the dog and super views of the stunning countryside. Thank you as always Carol and Evan for making our sadly short stay a memorable one. We hope to see you soon in 2016.

A lovely New Year break, cottage beautiful and very comfortable.  This is the second time we have stayed at these cottages and we all enjoyed a relaxing break. The views are spectacular. Carol and Evan are most welcoming people and the extras they leave us on arrival are lovely. We will be back again later this year, if cottage is available.
Thanks again and love, The Prichard Family, Staffs.     1:1:16


It has been a pleasure to briefly share in the results of your visions and hard work. It was equally pleasurable sharing your company and of course Cymro.
The welcome pack was really appreciated - especially the Bara brith and Welsh cakes - though for Sarah it was perhaps the wine. We leave with fond memories and thank you for your kind hospitality.
Love and Best Wishes, Bird and Spinks Family, Woburn Sands and Milton Keynes.     25:7:15

We have been on holiday all over the world and yet the best place we have ever stayed in was right on our doorstep! A fantastic cottage, well laid out with nothing forgotten, in one of the most quiet and beautiful places on earth. Many thanks to Carol and Evan for providing such a cracking place to stay on holiday and we'll defiantly be back.
Lloyd Family, Rugby.     22:8:15

Returning to the 'Land if my Fathers' with all the poignancy of this visit - the pockets of gold as described last year continue to exude charm, tranquility and every comfort imaginable. 'Thank you' again is too tame a phrase of gratitude but it is given with the deepest sentiment and gratitude 'for all the blessing of this stay'. As before Au revoir but never Goodbye.
