I have recently returned from a week spent at Crych Du, If you like cosy cottages, the countryside and don't have children under 14 or pets, then this is the cottage for you, it exceeded my expectations ten fold.
The cottage its self is immaculate and extremely well equipped with everything you could possibly need for your stay and is set in spectacular surroundings, the river is at the bottom of the garden and can be easily seen from the conservatory, which is the room we used the most, from here you catch sight of a variety of wildlife, you also have the enjoyment of the owners Appenzeller Spitzhauben Chickens roaming freely, extremely pretty birds, you also have a variety of wild birds to watch, you are also left a supply of bird seed to place on the different bird tables that are placed around.
On our arrival we had a very warm welcome from our host who took us to the cottage and showed us around, during our stay we were lucky enough to have four ponies grazing in the paddock next to the cottage and although the owners came twice a day to tend to the ponies they were always extremely unobtrusive, having said that they are also very approachable and helpful.
Our stay was delightful and I can't sing the praises of this holiday cottage enough we shall most definitely looking at a return visit, an extremely relaxing holiday, walks from the door, a few miles by car takes you to the beautiful Elan Valley and I strongly recommend a trip off to Abergwesyn common which is truly spectacular, from here you can drive up the Devils Staircase and on to the Llyn Brianne dam and reservoir, believe me you will not be disappointed.
I read on the booking site that the pictures do not do justice to this property, and they really don't..
