“We had a fantastic stay at Y Frenni Fast. The cottage itself is lovely and has everything you need for a comfortable stay. It is set on a small working farm and the upside layout makes for great views across the farm and the surrounding hills from the lounge and kitchen diner. It's a very peaceful and relaxing environment. Dave and Ann were excellent hosts, nothing was too much trouble and they gave some great recommendations for places to visit (and which local ales to sample πŸ™‚). There's lots to do and explore in the surrounding Ceredigion and Pembrokeshire areas, even whilst a fair amount is still shut due to lockdown. Would highly recommend and we'd love to stay again in future.”

“A lovely, cosy, comfortable holiday cottage in a beautiful part of Pembrokeshire. Dave and Ann are such lovely people, they really went out of their way to make us feel welcome and they have such a brilliant knowledge of the area we didn't struggle to find things to do through the week. On departing we felt like we were saying goodbye to old friends. Thank you Dave and Ann xx”

“A lovely, relaxing holiday in the shadow of the Preseli Hills.
The owners were welcoming; really genuine people who took the trouble to get to know us and allow the children to feed and experience their animals at first hand - a real highlight of the holiday.
The cottage itself is spacious, clean and had everything that we needed for our week's stay. We would recommend the cottage without reservation”

“The cottage was equipped with everything we needed and was as described with the kitchen and living area having lots of space. The view from the lounge is wonderful. The hosts are welcoming as well as being very informative about the area. If you have dogs to bring with you the designated garden is just perfect. A great place to stay to explore the area and we plan to return as soon as we can arrange it. We highly recommend Blaencwm Cottages.”

“Thank you so much we had a fantastic holiday. 5 stars!!!
The cottage was perfect for us including our dog. Such a good idea to have the living room upstairs so we could enjoy the beautiful views.
The welcome pack with a cake is a lovely touch. We had never stayed in that part of Wales before so information about the local area was brilliant.
We will definitely be back.”

“Beautifully clean and well-equipped cottage, with fabulous views of the nearby hills. The location is perfect for exploring the area, and there's plenty to do and see nearby.
We took our dog and were very impressed with the orchard facility for dogs. Just one of the many thoughtful details that the owners had thought through.
Lovely to have fresh eggs from the hens for breakfast!”

“We had a fantastic time at the cottage and it exceeded our expectations. The owners Dave and Ann are extremely friendly and laid back. They live on site and are very welcoming and there if you need them, but they are not in-your-face at all - just right. They even bake a cake for your arrival.
The cottage is comfortable and we liked the "upside down" design, with the living space upstairs, you are able to appreciate the great views. It's in a really good location too - an easy drive to Cardigan and Newport Sands, it's also easy to get to St David's, Pembroke and Tenby.
The best thing for us though was how dog friendly it all was. We felt the dogs were genuinely welcome and they had a brilliant time. They didn't want to leave and neither did we!
Highly recommended!”
