“We thoroughly enjoyed our week in west Wales. Philippa and David have really thought of everything you might need in the cottage, and it makes for a lovely retreat and base for exploring the area. They have provided lots of written detailed guidance and advice on where to go and what to see, places to eat and visit, which was a really helpful resource when it came to planning our time in the area. They were always on hand if we needed them for anything. The little farm 'shop' and freezer of their own produce is another great touch, and we very much enjoyed their very own bacon and sausages! If you want to stay around the cottage, the smallholding is a delight and there are also lovely walks from the property. Close by is the amazing Hungry Ram for dinner and stunning views!

We highly recommend staying here and hope to return! It's such a beautiful spot and utterly quiet and relaxing.”

“Spent a whole brilliant week here! Never went more than ¾ of an hour from here and there’s still lots of stuff to do. The accommodation is really top class, spotlessly clean and well equipped, very comfortable. The beaches are tremendous and the walking is excellent. And we loved the pre-cooked food on offer from D&P, very good quality. So we’ll be back!”

“Our fourth visit did not disappoint – we love the peace of Banceithin. Missed seeing the pigs, but the sheep, chickens, small birds, dogs & cats made up for their absence. And the sausages were delicious, as was all the other Banceithin produce. Thank you very much for sharing Banceithin with us.”

“What a gem! The cottage is absolutely beautiful and so well designed and equipped - there is nothing that hasn't been thought of. Loved how everything was clearly labelled so we didn't have to wonder where to put recycling too. A truly relaxing escape in gorgeous countryside with so much space to enjoy.....from the private garden, games room and trestle tables to the seating round the fire pit. And the chickens coming to the door to say hello. Philippa and David are so welcoming and make you feel like you belong there. Thank you. We will definitely be coming back again and wholeheartedly recommend it”

“We had a truly amazing first Christmas as a married couple in your cosy cottage. The chickens were friendly, it made every morning special, opening the curtains and seeing them pecking about! This corner of Wales is gorgeous, and we loved exploring the beaches and the countryside. It was perfect.”

“We feel like we’ve been living in a dream for four days! It has been an absolute pleasure from the moment we got here. Your story is inspiring and we will be taking some lessons with us. The cottage is an adventure in itself, perfect for a rainy day. We loved exploring the farm, the animals and trying out your farm produce (best sausages ever!). You really have thought of everything, from the basics and way beyond. Thank you so much for a magical, immersive and memorable experience. We feel rested and have found our basic human selves.”

“The whole setup and atmosphere at Banceithin is one of relaxation and switching off from normal everyday life. It is not isolation, but it seems to be so. David and Philippa have got things here ‘just right’. It is our second visit, and hopefully there will be a third.”
