WHAT OUR GUESTS SAY

We had the most incredible time at BlaenfforestCottage, the owners were so lovely from very first contact and gave us all the information we needed for a truly wonderful stay. The welcome basket was a lovely surprise and the handwritten note was really a lovely touch.
The cottage itself was so cosy and had everything we needed and more, Rachel had explained there was a little walk to the hot tub but it was not as far as we were expected and the hot tub is well worth it! So clean! Sitting in the middle of the trees in the hot tub with a glass of fizz was a perfect way to end our days of exploring.
Both of our Dogs had a great time exploring the grounds, this is the first place we have stayed that has actually been dog friendly!
Most places we have had to keep the dogs on the lead and have been restricted with rooms they are allowed to be in (one place they were only allowed in the kitchen!!) but this place is completely dog friendly and they were so relaxed the whole weekend!
The pet pigs were loads of fun, make sure you take some apples to feed them and they will keep you entertained!
The chickens wandering round the grounds was lovely to see and the lady trying to get the ducks in one evening was quite comical.
We cannot wait to come back, this really is the most perfect place to get away from it all.
