what our guests say
“Having heard from friends about Blaenfforest we were keen to stay and were not disappointed.The setting, the friendly animals, the woodland walk, it was just all so lovely.The Granary had every luxury we could want for and super to see the hosts are very eco-conscious.Coming back to a woodburner, hot tub and wine after a long beach walk was heaven.We have already rebooked for Spring 2021.

“We stayed for 4 nights in September 2020. From the moment we arrived we knew we had chosen somewhere special!
Rachel our host greeted us on arrival and considering we live in strange times could not have made us feel more comfortable and welcome which is a feat in itself at the moment.
The cottage is perfect and so comfortable. There is a walk down to the stream from the cottage gate and the animals that live on site are great to wake up to. The hot tub is literally the jewel in the crown and finishes off an idyllic setting for rest and relaxation.
I could not recommend this cottage enough and will definitely be back sooner rather than later. Thank you again, what you have achieved in such a short time is incredible!"

“Pictures on the website did not do the cottage justice.We could have moved in for good we loved it that much.Felt at home immediately and we loved the fact that so much thought has gone into being environmentally responsible without sparing the luxuries. We will be returning!”
Carl & Lisa September 2020
“Heavenly surroundings, such a peaceful and relaxing break, just what we needed. Walking through the woods in sunshine and spotting so much wildlife was my highlight.
Rachael, Chris & Charlotte September 2020
“Had a fantastic few days.The kids adored the animals, especially Bonnie & Bunty. Seeing what you’ve done first hand has made up our minds to leave London for good, seeing your raised beds and fresh veggies sealed the deal!We will no doubt be returning for advice ☺”

We rented the Cottage and the Aviary for our family holiday and the kids were blown away with having their own space – so were we!!The setting was amazing and I don’t think the games consuls came out once. We really felt spoilt with our own hot tub.We shall definitely be returning, thank you Rachel & Jason.

I stayed in the Aviary for work – much better than a hotel room, spot on for social distancing.Great set up, everything you need and great setting. Felt like a holiday.

“What a find, a real get-back-to-nature break but with all the mod cons.We stayed in Blaenfforest Cottage for a post lockdown getaway and it couldn’t have been more perfect.Waking up to the sound of chickens and ducks was so relaxing. Lovely hosts and some great beaches.

We booked Blaenfforest on a friend’s recommendation – it exceeded our expectations!A big thank you to Rachel and Jason for sparing so much of their time to chat through their sustainability programme – you should run courses!
Graeme & Jill, July 2020
Had another lovely week at Blaenfforest (we’ve stayed twice before)
The location is rural, quiet and beautiful. Rachel is more than welcoming, encouraging guests to explore the grounds - the private woodland walk with stream and the vegetable area are delightful.
Hot tub is a lovely addition and well maintained by Rachel.
Thanks for having us, and we’ll see you again!

Blaenfforest was a beautiful escape and the perfect place to recharge the batteries. The cottage was so cozy and exactly what we needed, the hot tub being an added bonus!Rachel was a great host not intrusive but always on hand if you had any questions.
