"Exceptional cottage – everything we needed and more! The attention to detail and high level of furnishings and accessories is much appreciated. Loved the little touches the fact that the dog is very welcome, and very immaculate and super clean."

"Came away for a get together with our son and daughter and we’ve had such a lovely time. Cwt Mochyn is a real find and we can’t wait to return. The sun has shone and we’ve made the most of it, eating al-fresco on the patio and some great walks. This is such a peaceful area – great to hear nothing but birdsong. Our time has gone too quickly.”
