A beautiful, homely, and well equipped home from home in the Welsh countryside. The loveliest, most helpful hosts. Fantastic welcome, and the most useful visitors guide to help you plan and enjoy your stay. Cannot recommend this place enough - an oasis, perfect for enjoying a comfortable and relaxing break.

Lovely cottage and the hot tub was a real bonus. Friendly welcome from the owners who are on hand for any issues. The position is very rural and quiet in a farming environment.. great for a relaxing break and Aberystwyth about a 20 minute drive away through beautiful scenery.

We loved our week at Cambrian View. It's location is excellent giving the opportunity to explore both the coast, mountains and narrow guage railways. Our hosts were very friendly and more than happy to oblighe with any requests. Our two dogs were made most welcome and the nearby farm tracks provided excellent walking for them.

Great property with lovely views especially from the decking and hot tub. The welcome hamper was appreciated and, overall, we had a great holiday. However, the cleanliness of both the outside and indoor spaces could have been better and the wifi was limited and non existent on the decking - a booster is needed.

The property was beautiful, a few upgrades on pots, pans and utensils are needed, apart from that great location, easy check in and check out. Original cottage send daily reminders for the week coming up to our holiday booking with the same check in details and how to get there which felt a bit over excessive since we read and saved them the first Read moretime round but maybe others would find all the emails and text message reminders useful.
