We stayed in the larger of the two properties, six adults and a toddler. The accommodation was very well equipped, clean and well designed. The welcome pack of food was a lovely touch. The grounds are super, giving us chance to explore with the little one, visiting the sheep, pigs, chickens, cats and dog. The games room lent itself to a table tennis tournament, inspired by the Olympics! The owner David and Philippa were on hand for any queries and the home made food we were able to purchase from them was an added bonus.
Cwt Mochyn is truly a gem of a place; and don't be tempted into thinking that eco-tourist self-catering cannot also be the height of luxury - Gold Star Award Winning provision isn't lightly won. The barn conversion is attractive and tasteful, with an artistic flair for colour and décor, each room having its own distinctive qualities. And one's comfort is ensured, with warm furnishings, a wood-burning stove for extra cosiness, and very effective but environmentally-sound central heating. It would be a real challenge for any guest to find an equipment item or holiday need not given proper thought, with beautifully fitted-out bathrooms, one en-suite, and a kitchen well designed for easy self-catering. Philippa and David, the owners, have made staying here a real pleasure, with every home comfort such as books, travel guides, study material, music, DVDs and television. And if you are tempted to get bored (perish the thought) there is an outside paved patio with a table, seats and a parasol, a garden to stroll around, fields to wander through and visit the resident sheep, pigs and chickens, a board-walk across the streams and to the tree house, and a well provided games room with its own land-line phone. And beyond Banceithin, but in easy reach, there are many tiny coves, beaches, attractive villages and small towns to be visited, all of which are fully described in the helpful literature provided, which also includes hints for shopping and eating-out. But should you prefer eating-in the owners can also provide you with a delicious range of local produce and home-cooked dishes to order. A week is barely enough to savour all the joys that Cwt Mochyn can provide, and its tranquil and relaxing atmosphere lures one into staying longer. Do give this place a try - you will not be disappointed.

Stayed here with my extended family. The location is stunning, the family that run it are incredibly helpful without being intrusive in any way. The house (our Welsh farmer relatives very much enjoyed the fact that it's called 'the pig sty') is beautifully fitted out, very comfortable, incredible attention to detail everywhere. Lots of stuff outside for the kids to do, lots of places to visit nearby. I can't rate this place highly enough.
