Phil and Jen were excellent hosts. There when you needed advice but respectful of you privacy. The rooms definitely deserved their 5 star rating and the breakfast could have competed with any top 5 star hotel. The best scrambled egg and smoked salmon I've ever had!

Phil and Jen warm welcomed us with tea and delicious cake. The room is large with a great view over the mountains. It's a bit isolated, for that it's so relaxing calm. Hard to get there with a low sports car.

Peaceful location, excellent hosts- unobtrusive but very helpful - good quality rooms and amenities, excellent breakfasts. Great views. A bit of a track up to the house, but all part of the charm! Good restaurants nearby in Llandelio.

The whole stay was perfect. The views from the front bedrooms were stunning, the hosts were friendly and welcoming and the room was of an excellent standard. Very clean and modern and the bed and pillows were very comfy (often when staying away this is a problem and causes a bad nights sleep!). The breakfast was very tasty and a...
