"We enjoyed our stay and liked the location. The close proximity our two cottages is ideal for family holidays. I found my cottage very spacious and the kitchen well equipped. The cottage was extremely clean and well furnished It was appreciated that all consumables are more than generously provided and we did not lack any supplies. The flowers, apple pie and cream provide a lovely welcome... We did a walk up to the viaduct and found the scenery beautiful. It is a week that we will remember very fondly. We were all sad to leave as it felt like home." Guest, England, December, 2013

We'd just like to say thank you for such a lovely stay at The Stables last weekend. Even though the weather proved very mixed we still managed to enjoy walks and cycle rides, and appreciated being able to warm up in the Jacuzzi before some dinner.
We were all very impressed and felt very welcome, and thank you for all your prompt replies to my many questions. We will definitely be recommending to family and friends and look forward to staying again sometime. " Guest, England, November, 2014

"We had such a fantastic time and I have recommended your cottages to work colleagues already. They were so beautifully decorated, well equipped and just lovely and everyone has said what a fantastic time they had." Guest, Wales, January, 2015

John & Lucy were fantastic, as was their house. The cottage was beautiful in a lovely quiet country setting. It was equipped with everything you could possibly want & more; from games to cooking equipment. Everything was spotless on arrival and in great condition. Lucy and John were on hand before & during our trip to answer any questions we had. We were 3 couples looking for a relaxing fun get away & this was the PERFECT place. Can’t recommend enough!
Thank you so much for letting us stay in your lovely cottage. We had a fabulous time and would highly recommend it to others. We loved how well equipped everything was, how clean and how well everything organised. Thank you! Guest, London, October 2016

“Just to say how much we enjoyed our stay at Merlin Stable Cottage over
Christmas. Thank you so much for the beautiful Christmas tree, it made us
feel just like we were at home celebrating. The cottage was absolutely
perfect and so comfortable, we cooked a lovely Christmas dinner in the well
equipped kitchen, our two dogs loved all the walks in the forests as we did,
we went to Crychan forest on the Wednesday afternoon and walked in a few
inches of snow!! There was no snow when we came back to the cottage.

We hope you found that we left things clean and tidy, we make a point of
doing so as we are grateful that accommodation like yourselves allow us to
bring our much loved pets.” Guests, England, December, 2017
