We spent a lot of money for a 5-day stay. However, upon entry we were hit by a musty smell that smelt like wet dog and it never went away. The bedrooms are fine (the bath and shower are very good) but the ground floor needs a good scrub and repainting. We had to wash everything that came out of the cupboards because of grease and food marks and I suspect the previous renters washed utensils without washing-up liquid. However, this could have been checked. There was also no real garden out the back, which wasn't an issue when we were there as it was so wet but this is a matter of principle. For the prices charged, in general this place needs tidying up as you can get spotless and beautiful cottages elsewhere for this price - e.g. in the Cotswolds, which is where we are now. We have just paid a cheaper price for a 7 day stay in a stunning cottage in Broadway, which is one of the most beautiful towns in the UK. Rhiwlas could be a good place to stay as the landscape/ scenery is stunning in the area.
