“Beautifully disappointing”
Reviewed 13 June 2018 for a stay in June 2018

This cottage is in a beautiful, quiet setting, close to woodlands for walking and near to Cardiff to make it a great base for city visits. However, the decor of the cottage is dated and the cleanliness below an acceptable standard. The cottage is not suitable for those with animal allergies or lung conditions aggrievated by animal hair or damp. An unfortunate incident with biting creatures meant we were unable to stay at the cottage.

It is unfortunate that your daughter's severe allergies meant that you had to leave before staying one night, but, as mentioned in the description for the cottage, we do accept well-behaved dogs and since the previous guests had a dog, it is likely that this triggered her reaction. The cottage was absolutely spotless prior to your arrival and I find your assertion that it was not, profoundly bewildering. There was no animal hair, most certainly no 'biting creatures', and the decor was updated at the end of last year. There is a small patch of damp in the rear bedroom. But, in a converted 17th Century milking shed, that is to be expected and certainly hasn't caused any of our other guests the distress it caused you. Perhaps your negative review has its basis in the absence of a refund, rather than any actual truth.

Great hosts, really welcomed us into their location, extremely family friendly and the hot tub is epic!
I believe the company can make or break a trip but Glebe cottage meant our work was cut out for us!
Tip: Turn all the lights off in the house so there is no light pollution and on a clear night the sky, the stars are uncountable!
On my top 5 for best locations and would most definitely consider returning there in the future!

“Lovely cottage! Would definitely stay again!”
Reviewed 1 April 2017 for a stay in March 2017

We stayed here for a weekend as a group of 6 friends to celebrate a birthday. The cottage was perfect for us and had plenty of room, it was nice and cosy and everything was very clean. The open plan kitchen with the big dining room table in the conservatory was great for us as we were in a group.

Jane was lovely, she was so helpful with any questions we had about the cottage and gave us recommendations for where to go out in Cardiff. We rang her to ask about the central heating as it got a bit cold in the evening and she came round and adjusted the thermostat for us as we couldn't work it out. We also then used the log burner which soon warmed us up.

It was only a 15 minutes drive into Cardiff City Centre which we were able to drive ourselves or get a taxi which was between £15-£20 for a minibus.

We would definitely recommend and would love to stay again!
