This is the 2nd time we have been to this cottage, it is amazing. The owners are so welcoming and the hot tub is divine. There is nothing bad I can say about this cottage, we can't wait to go back again.

Our hosts were lovely and nothing was too much trouble for them. We were overwhelmed by the facilities within the cottage which exceeded our expectations. The level of equipment and attention to detail was superb. This provided us with the best possible start to what was to become a very special weeks holiday. We will definitely be back to stay in the cottage again and have recommended this holiday to all our friends.

The cottage was in a superb location. Stargazing from the hot tub at night and looking out onto the rolling hills during the day were highlights of our stay. The owners were very welcoming and friendly.

Cottage was fabulous, beautifully decorated and furnished throughout. Everything clean and tidy. Hot tub brilliant! Used every evening until dark. Nothing was too much trouble for the owners but nothing needed, as they had thought of every comfort. Definitely be back!

A perfect cottage in beautiful countryside. The owners were really welcoming. It was definitely home from home and will be on our list of return visits. Thank you.

The owners gave us a warm welcome. The cottage was of a very high standard and had a fantastic hot tub. It was a dog friendly cottage which had a large enclosed garden and the local walks were lovely. It was a good location for visiting Aberystwyth and the Devils bridge area. The scenery was breathtaking. We would highly recommend this cottage to everyone.

Beautiful cottage in a beautiful part of the country. Stunning views from the Windows/gardens. Fabulous fully enclosed garden to keep dogs safe. Lots to do in local area and fantastic dog walks. Had a lovely week enjoying the peace, quiet and tranquillity. Would thoroughly recommend and hope to go back one day. A fabulous holiday.

Owners very friendly and helpful. Freshly made cakes upon arrival to the cottage. Fantastic wood burner made the lounge at night very cosy and warm. Fantastic hot tub and lovely warm outdoor changing room with shower facilities. Views from the cottage over the mountains and woods absolutely stunning.

The hot tub is a real plus point after a long walk. It was nice to be able to relax and chill in, in the evenings. Also there are plenty of walks to explore nearby meaning you don't have to start the car if you don't want to.

Llanafan is a lovely, quiet relaxing location. Pen-Y-Bryn is a well maintained, comfortably furnished cottage. Walks in the area are good and if you want to go further afield there are places not too far away.

We had an amazing time here. It was very comfortable, a real home from home. The owners lived 100 yards away however they were very respectful of our privacy. The hot tub was brilliant after a hard day walking. A little remote but that suited us! Would definitely recommend.

Great holiday cottage, one of the best we have stayed in. The owner met us on arrival and was very welcoming and friendly, which was a lovely start to our stay there. House spotlessly clean and has everything you could need in it, with plenty of space for us and the three kids. Great to be able to bring our dogs to such a nice cottage. The owners were nearby if you needed them.

This is a beautiful cottage with everything you need, the standard is exceptional. The wood turning stove is a lovely touch and great for cosy evenings in. The area is stunning with breath taking scenery which ever way you look. I would definitely recommend this property, you won't be disappointed.

This is our second stay at Pen Y Bryn, and as before enjoyed an excellent stay. The location and quality of this cottage is fantastic, with the added bonus of the hot tub, which is much appreciated after enjoying long walks in the area. Would highly recommend this cottage.

The cottage was beautiful, and very well equipped; from teaspoons to pizza cutter. The scenery from the cottage was stunning. The hot tub was an added bonus and was spotless. The owners were very friendly but not obtrusive, cannot think of any faults and would gladly return.

We met the owner on arrival for the hand over and although they live only 2 doors away they left us to get on with enjoying the break. The hot tub was maintained whilst we were out for the day. The whole break was very relaxing.

Our welcome on arrival was warm and friendly. This cottage was warm, comfortable and provided all that was needed. It is in a beautiful, relaxing location and the hot tub delivers the last piece of luxury to complete the set up.

Everything about our holiday was great, the cottage was gorgeous and the view was beautiful. We didn't want to leave!

We were on a return visit from last year which in turn speaks for itself. The property was within an ideal, quiet location for a couple in a very unspoilt part of the world. There are local walks and we enjoyed the hot tub. The owners were very friendly.

Loved it all, the standard was very good and if we were to go to mid Wales again would definitely book Pen Y Bryn.

Beautiful scenery, cosy inside and the hot tub was surprisingly amazing.

The cottage was in a perfect setting, with excellent walks both from the cottage and in the surrounding area. The cottage is extremely comfortable and provided everything we needed for a very relaxing holiday. The hot tub was a particular bonus especially after returning from long walks in the day. The owners are very friendly and we loved hot scones, jam and cream on arrival.

The location was wonderful, probably the best area we've stayed in, and the standard of the cottage itself was excellent. Accepting dogs and having a fully enclosed garden were the main reasons why we chose the cottage but the excellent WiFi, TV, comfy beds and overall standard of the cottage were added bonuses.

The cottage was lovely, beautiful views and walks from the door. The jacuzzi was fantastic, private and had the views too; it was cleaned daily. The owners were attentive and friendly but not intrusive. The jam and cream scones on arrival were very welcome. The beds were very comfortable with good quality clean linen. A good dog friendly holiday.

The location of the cottage was idyllic. The owners were very welcoming and the hot tub was fantastic. The warm cakes and scones on arrival were a lovely touch.

Lovely cottage in a beautiful setting. The hot tub was a massive hit with us all.

An immaculate cottage in a beautiful and quiet location, this was a holiday made in heaven. Red kites flying over head by day, and a crystal clear view of the milky way at night, all enjoyed with a glass of cava from the luxury of the hot tub 🙂 We were made to feel welcome and at home.

A very nice cottage. The owners where very welcoming. The hot tub was unbeatable. There is also some very good walks to go on around the area with some amazing waterfalls. Would highly recommend.

A beautiful unspoilt part of Wales - so clean and friendly. The owners could not have been more welcoming and are justly proud of their cottage. It has everything you could wish for including the fab hot tub and the quiet setting with an abundance of local dog friendly walks. Best Sykes cottage we have stayed in. So much so we have already booked to return next year.

Nice family. Excellent views. Good dog walks. Hot tub very well look after and cleaned everyday.

The property was in a beautiful setting, peaceful and relaxing. The owners were the perfect hosts with a warm welcome and lovely homely cottage. The hot tub looked out onto a serene hill and yes, we saw the kites and buzzards above the cottage. Despite being December we were warm and cosy with the woodburner and the cottage had everything we needed from a large television to a deck of cards should we have needed them.

We loved the hot tub, and separate utility/shower room. We received a great welcome from the owners, and the home-made cakes were a lovely touch.

Everything was just perfect. It provided a New Year's Eve holiday that will never be forgotten! Absolutely loved the hot tub, and will definitely be recommending to friends. Would love to revisit in the summer!!

Perfect place to relax

The cottage had everything we needed to make our stay hassle free, very clean and comfortable with a great garden for the dog explore at the same time secured. We found locals in the village very friendly and stopped what they were doing to have chat. The best part was sitting in the garden watching eagles fly over head. Highly recommended we will be back.
