“Such a beautiful cottage. It had everything that you needed for a very comfortable stay. The rooms were far bigger than we expected.
Lovely and cozy as we visited during storm Dennis .
The woodland walk was beautiful and so well thought out with all of the walkways. I would love to visit again during the warmer months”

“We loved our stay and would happily go back again. Shepherd's Pie was a real home from home experience, such a cosy feel there, so much in fact we didn't want to leave. The pictures do not do it justice, it was bigger than we thought and perfect. The little touches really made a difference, just the simple luxury of having kitchen roll and washing tablets etc there plus we made use of the dvd's, books and games. Thank you!”

“Fabulous location close to so many gorgeous and different types of beaches where dogs were also allowed!
Great and spacious place to stay!
Good places to eat close to all the beaches or on the beach at Aberporth such as The Boy Ashore!
Thanks for providing us with great accommodation to explore Cardigan Bay.”

“We have just returned from a thoroughly enjoyable Easter break at Cardigan Bay where we stayed in "Shepherds Pie" one of Mark's fabulous cottages.

The layout of the converted Barn was perfect as was the cleanliness and overall presentation of the accommodation.

Sometimes in self catering accommodation there can be an overload of contents, especially in the kitchen area, but surprisingly there was a minimilistic feel to Shepherds Pie but everything you could possibly need was there so very well though out.

Thank you Mark - we all had a great time and what a wonderful part of the world,”

“Spacious, well presented cottage. It is well equipped and they have thought of everything you can think of, including a games cupboard for wet days/evening entertainment. The Woodland Walk on the property is beautiful and our children and dog loved it. The owners were friendly and available if needed otherwise we were left to get on with it. It is a beautiful part of Wales and we would love to return.”

“Mark and his team have a beautiful well equipped cottage. Shepards pie accommodated the six of us with our dog with ease. The woodland walk on site was easily accessible and a bonus to have on the doorstep. Cardigan and the coast was just a short drive away.
Shepards Pie was the perfect base for a lovely holiday.”

“Our family had an amazing time at Shepard's pie. It was a beautiful barn conversion in a beautiful location, the house was extremely well equipped and they even had things like family games, books for everyone and DVD's. We have never had these things anywhere else we have stayed. They even had takeaway menus if you didn't fancy cooking one evening. The woodland walk was beautiful and my daughter really enjoyed playing in the little river and looking for fairies. I would definitely recommend this cottage for anyone looking for a relaxing family holiday.”

“The cottage was perfect, with quirky changes of level which were a thrill for an 18 month old! Provision of a cot and high chair were very welcome. Life with our dog was very easy thanks to the lovely woodland walk (with orchids) with which we started each day. Perfect!”

“Shepherd's Pie is in a lovely location 10 min drive from Cardigan and has everything and more that you need for a holiday. Welsh cakes and wine on arrival was a lovely gesture and very welcome. If you are visiting this area then I would recommend Cawrence Farm as the place to stay without any hesitation whatsoever.”

“Really great place to stay. Well laid out and beautifully maintained cottage. Plenty of space for us all (kids and grandparents) and well equipped with nice TV and video, shower, cooker etc - all great quality. Only issue (for me anyway) is the weak mobile reception in the valley (not a criticism of the owner) but as a consequence WIFI would be a really great addition.

Wonderful spot, nice hosts and very comfy.

Book it and stay in this beautiful place, you won't regret it.

Lots of information leaflets on the surrounding area in the cottage & visitors book helps to see where previous tenants had visited. Thanks for sorting out the hot weeather too, the beaches nearby are lovely!”
