“We have stayed at Waterwheel Cottage 3 times and certainly would not hesitate to stay again. Everything you need is in the cottage and the hosts would not hesitate to oblige if there is something you require. Lovely setting, nice and peaceful yet within easy reach of activities, towns and paths to explore."
Mrs MclaughlanYorkshire, UK
“Arrived to a lovely, warm welcome from the owners, Sam and Don, who live on site. The cottage was beautiful, furnished to a very high standard and with every need catered for. Super welcome pack provided and the bottle of wine was most appreciated! Spinners cottage is in an idyllic spot and well placed for exploring this lovely part of Wales. So enjoyed our stay here and would recommend it whole-heartedly. We shall certainly return!"
Mrs MarinkovicShropshire, UK
"A lovely quiet easter holiday with exceptional weather for the time of year. This was a lovely cottage with great owners who made the stay even more perfect than it already was. The cottage is part of an old mill and is next to a small stream. Located in a small friendly hamlet. Easy to find and yet off the beaten track enabling quiet and peaceful relaxation. Although there are many places to visit nearby we just stayed in the garden and ventured on the many walks in this lovely wooded valley. We will be back for more next time."
Mr HughesUK
“Lovely hosts, clean and comfortable the property had everything we needed for our stay, the welcome pack contained delicious food items would definately recommend the corn bread, we had lovely weather for April, but still made use of the wood burner in the evenings, we enjoyed sitting in the garden watching the wildlife especially the kites,very peaceful,had lovely days at the seaside and exploring the preselli hills where the Bluestones were quarried and taken to stonehenge,thankyou for a lovely holiday.”
Miss BurtonUK
"Spinners Cottage is a lovely old building but it is furnished to a very high standard. Sam and Don were wonderful, warm hosts and it was lovely to chat with them. They left a very generous welcome pack which resulted in us hunting down the shop used and eating far too much gorgeous bread, creamy butter and Welsh cakes than was probably good for us."
Mrs CarterWest Midlands, UK
“We arrived late on a Saturday night, so we were very happy with the complimentary groceries in the cottage from the owners Don and Samantha.” We stayed for 2 weeks with our 2 children and had a wonderfull time. The cottage, the garden and the surroundings were fantastic. The location is great for making lots of daytrips, but also to relax in the garden or make a walk in the area. People there are very friendly and helpfull. As we had some trouble with our car Don picked us from the garage and brought us back there as soon as the car was repaired, super service! Due to the long drive back, we left early at 6 AM and they surprised us by waving us goodbye. Our vacation was special thanks to all the effords they made. We would highly recommend a stay and we surely will visit again in the future."
Mr BoutenNetherlands
“We had a lovely holiday at Spinners Cottage, Sam and Don were very welcoming. We even had a welcome pack of basic essentials for us. It is a great relaxing base to go exploring. I could not fault anything in the cottage at all. Everyone was very friendly when we went on our little walks around the village."
Ms PelopidaMonmouthshire, UK
"The owners, Samantha & Don, were so very welcoming & helpful, without being intrusive. They seemed to have thought of everything regarding the cottage & the setting is beautiful & peaceful, so outside seating provided excellent opportunity for relaxation. Our stay was short , but could not have been better for our purpose !!"
Mrs FaggDorest, UK
"Very warm and friendly welcome from Sam - the welcome package was a lovely surprise and went above and beyond what you could normally hope for (the corn bread and welsh cakes were particularly good). The cottages were in a very quiet setting, peaceful and tranquil with a stream running by, and lots of wildlife to enjoy. Even though my friend and I were without transport, getting about was not a problem, and the walk to the village of Drefach Velindre for the amenities was pleasant - though the pub opening times were different, but that is because I come from a town where they are open all day (and night!)"
Miss SimmonsSwansea, UK
"We have always enjoyed our stay at Waterwheel Cottage. The owners are extremely helpful and friendly going as far as to order a lead, we had forgotten, from Amazon"

Mrs KingBedford, UK
"We had a wonderful week at Spinners Cottage. The owners (who live on site) made us feel very welcome and were extremely helpful if we had any questions during our stay. Cottage was gorgeous and super clean, and the surrounding area is just breath-taking. We have two small children who also loved their stay, and we found the cottage very child-friendly, though it would be just as lovely for couples without children. We hope to come back soon and would recommend to anyone wishing to explore this beautiful part of Wales."
Mrs PhillipsUK
"Cottage meticulously prepared for us. Exceeded our expectations. Lovely welcome pack of bread, cheese and wine. . Tea, coffee,milk, butter, Welsh cakes - all the basics there for us. The setting is idyllic. Absolute gem of a place for an authentic, get away from it all but extremely comfortable holiday. A walkers, nature lovers, paradise"
Mrs DuffWarwickshire, UK
"We had a fantastic time at Spinners Cottage. It has everything you need, is extremely comfortable and the wood burner is an added bonus as we enjoyed lovely cosy evenings in with our 1 year old. It's a good base to explore west Wales and the nearby coastal areas. Sam and Don are the perfect hosts and have created lovely well equipped self catering cottages which are furnished to a high standard and went the extra mile to ensure we enjoyed our stay and had everything we need. There was a lovely welcome pack waiting in the kitchen when we arrived which was perfect as meant we could enjoy a nice snack after a long journey before having to hit the shops. They even bought a garden play set for our son to enjoy which was so thoughtful plus they were able to provide a travel cot and high chair so we did not have to bring our own. The cottage is set in a little hamlet overlooking fields. It's so peaceful there and all you can hear is the sound of the river flowing - bliss! Its a great base for walkers and hikers too with plenty of walks around. All in all a great find for a relaxing trip to Wales."
Mrs CohenColchester, UK
"The owners made every effort to ensure our stay was enjoyable and exceeded expectations with gifts of consumables at the start of our holiday and at the beginning of the second week"
Mr BunnageCambridgeshire, UK
"The cottage is situated in a lovely part of the country. The atmosphere is very quiet and peaceful. The Weaver Cottage is so well appointed the owners Samantha and Don have not forgotten a thing in the cottage to make the stay very comfortable. They have thought of everything. Their generosity in providing a welcome pack is to be applauded. Would definitely use this accomdation again. Took a little bit of finding but no great problem"
Mr InnesHertfordshire, UK
"The owners are an absolute delight making sure we had everything we needed and were very friendly"
Mr JenkinsSomerset, UK
"The cottage was beautiful and the owners were absolutely lovely. They went out of their way to make us feel welcome from the moment we arrived. They greeted us with cold drinks and we were pleasantly surprised with the amount of essentials which they had left in the cottage. Samantha and Don recommended places to go and things to see and we really had a fantastic time in a cottage that was decorated to a high standard. We look forward to going again."
Mr PotterLeicestershire, UK
"The cottage was located in a pretty and friendly village with the mill being set in its own very well maintained gardens"
Mrs RoseLondon, UK
"We want to thank both of you for sharing your beautiful property with us this week. We loved our time in West Wales and especially loved returning to Spinners every day"
Mrs ThomasBritish Columbia, Canada
"We would like to thank you both for a lovely stay in Waterwheel and Weavers cottages. With such a big age range (9 to 84 years) we found the cottages suited all our needs with easy access in to the cottages and a lovely garden to all share and relax in. The location is stunning and very conveniently situated as a great base to explore the region. We never seemed far from anywhere so travelling wasn’t an issue. Your recommendations to some lovely beach coves, local restaurants and walks were also invaluable, we never realised how much there was to see and do in your region. We will definitely be booking with you again for next year as soon as the dates are available and will be recommending you and your cottages to our friends"
Mrs RudgewickEssex, UK
"Really charming cottage run by very friendly people. Even in winter, it was a nice place to stay."
KarenColchester, UK
"Well maintained and clean cottage, lots of pleasant walks in the vicinity. Can't wait to come back."
LilianMersea, UK
"The cottage was a fantastic experience. The cottage was very clean, warm and spacious. The surrounding was just so relaxing - there was a river near by and you can even hear birds singing. The garden also allowed us to sit and enjoy the outdoor experience. There was bread, milk and eggs in the fridge which was a good surprise. The owner was very friendly. I think this was a bonus having the owner on the premise as we were able to ask for assistance when needed. There was a local shop where we were able to buy food and the locals were very friendly. There are good attractions - the owner sent us a list of things we could do. We went to the Wool Museum which was an educating experience. Overall, we would definitely recommend"
Miss AfolabiCoventry, UK
"We stayed in this cottage some time ago but with different owners. The new owners were thoughtful and kind, providing various drinks and some more than essential supplies. We had (Welsh of course) bread, milk, jams, butter and cakes plus lots of washing up liquid, toilet rolls, kitchen rolls etc and really anything else we needed. Plenty of information was available on Wales, the surrounding area, things to see and do making our stay a pleasure."
Mrs LintornLittlehampton, UK
"We stayed in Weavers Cottage and found plenty to do in the local area. Thoroughly recommended."
