From the moment we arrived at Blaenfforest we were made to feel incredibly welcome. The wicker basket with fresh eggs, home made bread and local cheese set the tone for what was an idyllic couple of days. This is a peaceful retreat in some of Wales' finest countryside.
The ducks, cockerel, pigs and dogs add to the experience and feeling of remote tranquillity which is difficult to imagine elsewhere.
The Granary cottage is spotless and so very well equipped that you need for nothing. Rachel is the perfect host and there if you need her but never invasive.
We will definitely return.
