Cwt Mochyn is the perfect home from home dog-friendly holiday cottage; a rural retreat for family holidays and small group holidays. This eco-friendly, self-catering holiday cottage is a former stone cow barn with adjoining pig sty, converted into a large, detached, single-storey cottage which sleeps six, plus one infant (cot and high chair provided) and up to two dogs.
An enclosed south-facing garden overlooks our wild grassland area and features a lawn, patio with table, chairs and barbecue, and bird feeders. A croquet set is available.
The kitchen is modern, well equipped and includes a built-in microwave and separate oven, ceramic hob, fridge freezer, dish washer, washing machine, toaster and kettle. A cafetiere is provided for coffee lovers.
The high ceiling sitting room, features stone walls and exposed wooden beams, and has a wood burning stove, LCD TV with Freesat, DVD/CD player (with connector for iPods and other mp3 devices), tuner, amplifier & speakers. There are plenty of books, CDs and DVDs to keep you entertained, and a selection of games and jigsaws.
Original stone walls and exposed wooden beams have also been retained in the dining room, where French windows lead out onto the patio area.
"Thank you for a fantastic stay. Probably the most well equipped cottage we have stayed in. Really relaxing and just what we needed. The children loved all the thoughtful touches, like the nature adventure box, and getting fresh air (when we could tear ourselves away from the books and log fire). We all loved sunset corner. We'd love to visit again."

"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.”

"What a find! In 50 years of self-catering Cwt Mochyn is the best. We can’t leave without mentioning the information book. Never have we come across so much detail to help guests enjoy their stay – it’s outstanding."
