A special place to stay

As seasoned holiday cottage visitors ourselves, we know how important it is to visit somewhere that is not only very special, but also clean, comfortable and well-equipped. All the necessities, as well as some luxuries, are included in the price. We know only too well how depressing it can be to arrive somewhere late at night to find that not even soap or washing-up liquid have been supplied. Our cottages all have something special about them, whether it is the wealth of beams, an original 17th-century wooden screen, or a superb view - as well as their beautiful unspoiled locations.

Featured cottage - Blaentrothy Cottage - Five star rated in Wales

Blaentrothy Holiday Cottage has been lovingly restored both with traditional materials and green concerns in mind. Blaentrothy Farm, where Blaentrothy Cottage is situated, has been listed as a very special group of farm buildings because they are completely unspoiled. Arriving at the farm is a bit like travelling back in time to the 17th-century. The 100 acres of farmland have been designated as a Site of Special Scientific Interest because the ancient meadows, which can be explored by public footpath, have never been ploughed or treated with modern fertilizers or weed killers. These provide a fascinating slice of living history: you can see exactly how a meadow would have looked at the time the farm was first built.

Luxury self-catering - Blaentrothy Cottage is situated in the middle of sheep farming country in what is a protected SSSI - 'Site of Special Scientific Interest'. The landscape is completely idyllic, and because it is an organic farm (and always has been), wild flower meadows, streams, copses and hedgerows are rich in wild fauna and flora. Beautiful views of the surrounding Welsh countryside, and nearby, the Black Mountains stretching out for miles, make this the perfect Welsh romantic hideaway.
