“Outstanding cottage rental in Ceredigion, Wales”
Reviewed 8 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

We found Dinas Cottage through TripAdvisor and booked on the basis of the reviews, and we were not disappointed. Superbly renovated and very luxurious, Dinas Cottage is at the high end of cottage rentals - truly wonderful and we loved staying there. Very well located in a secluded valley only a few 100 metres from the A44, with outstanding views from the benches outside of the property. Expertly finished and fitted throughout, the cottage is very comfortable with a superbly appointed kitchen and bathroom that has lashings of hot water. The cast iron fireplace is fully functional, although one doesn't need it as the central heating is very efficient - but we lit a fire every night because it was so homely. Satellite TV provides the usual entertainment but if one wants a quiet read then this is the right environment. Ponterwyd is a great location for visiting Ceredigion and its attractions, and there are loads of great walks just a short car ride away. The first afternoon on arrival we walked locally in a loop from Dinas Cottage to the nearby reservoir and back; the following day we parked in Aberwystwyth then took the train to Borth to walk back to Aber along the magnificent Wales Coastal Path then visited the town (and saw a few locations from the BBC's "Hinterland" detective series along the way). The next day we went to Devil's Bridge for a long looping hike. All walks were planned using OS Landranger Map 135. On our last full day it was raining and we drove to Abergynolwyn in the Snowdonia National Park to ride on the Talyllyn Steam Railway - lovely views. Overall It was a super break - we'll definitely be back!

“Cosy cottage with outstanding views”
Reviewed 22 March 2016 for a stay in December 2015

We booked and paid for our intended stay through Trip Advisor and found Martin to be very quick to respond to our enquiry. The cottage was situated just off the A44 in a beautiful quiet setting with outstanding views across the Cambrian mountains. We found the accommodation to be cosy, spacious and furnished to a high standard. The bedroom situated upstairs was beautiful with high beams, low windows and a very comfortable bed. The log burner was home from home for us and was lovely on the damp evenings, supplies of wood were available at the local petrol station. Wifi was patchy but not suprising for a fairly remote location, the availability improved when the adjoining cottage guests arrived, we believed the routers were connected and just needed a reset, Vodafone mobile phone reception was not existant which was great for us! The cottage was in a good location to explore the surrounding area and we have recommended it to a number of people.

The views are absolutely stunning, we had such an amazing time relaxing in front of the log burner in the evenings. Cottage is finished to a very high standard, and the owners provide a lovely welcome basket upon arrival. We really did not want to leave and we will definitely want to stay again in the future.

“We found paradise”

Reticent to put a review as we want this cottage to be kept a secret as a previous reviewer commented recently. We arrived to find a basket of Welsh goodies, a warm cosy cottage and absolute perfection. The bed was so comfortable, spotlessly clean rooms and views that no photo could do this cottage justice.

The owners have given this cottage life again and made them both into perfect holiday homes. The wooden tractor in the garden is great to sit on and watch the sun set. We took our bikes and cycled to the two resevoirs using the lanes outside the cottage. Stunning scenery and hardly any traffic. Mountain road to Tal Y Bont was an interesting drive. This cottage is perfection inside and out. Location couldn't have been better for Cambrian Mountains and the stunning coast. Red Kites frequently flying in the skies outside the cottage. The Red Kite feeding ground is only 15 minutes away and great walking and cycling routes.

We were lucky to have the cottages to ourselves. The final icing on the cake was the local sheep dog trials in the fields below the cottage on our last day. Would love to return when it was cold enough to light the stove.

We didn't want to leave. We will be back. Thank you Martin and Emma
