“Quiet Retreat and Dog Friendly”
Reviewed 3 November 2017 for a stay in October 2017

person found this review helpful

Just arrived home after a lovely 4 night stay in the The Old Forge Pump House Annex.
Annex was perfect for our needs.
Very Clean rooms ,Comfortable Bed,lovely kitchen area with all the equipment you would need to make a meal.
The outside was wonderful with the Annex having its very own garden.Great for the dog.
The garden to the house was amazing with all the seating areas that you were allowed to use.
My favourite sitting area was the last seat of the garden,lovely few up there ,well worth the climb.
There was an abundance of birds visiting the Annex garden and the much larger garden.
With the sound of the river flowing by and the sound of the birds in and around the garden makes this a special place to stay.
The owners Cath and Paul are nice friendly people and very welcoming .

“Green Paradise”
Reviewed 29 August 2017 for a stay in August 2017

After hot south-Israeli desert, it may feel like find yourself in a fairy dream, to stay in this wonderful green paradise. However, it was a reality! I don't think that many may boast such super comfortable living conditions, with a river prattle at 10 meters from the door, birds chipper and hens chuckle. And sure the most important part of this fairy tale is the faerie itself - Cathy, our cheerful, open-hearted hostess. Thank you, Cathy, you made our vacation unforgettable.

“Wonderful tranquil hideaway, great hospitality and great location.”
Reviewed 30 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

If you're looking for a private retreat within easy reach of most of the tourist areas of South Wales, this is it. It's a beautiful but modern apartment within a tranquil smallholding. The only noise is the babbling stream and twittering birds outside!

The owners Cathy and Paul are wonderfully hospitable, and provide basic kitchen essentials as well as fresh home-laid eggs and homemade biscuits on arrival. The kitchenette is well equipped and the three rooms (living area, bathroom and bedroom) are all nicely decorated and clean.

It's within 45 minute access of the Gower Peninsula and the Pembrokeshire coastline, but away from anything vaguely touristy.

I travelled with my mother for a long weekend away, but it would be ideal for couples wanting a bit of time out together.

“Lovely place for much needed relaxation!”

person found this review helpful

Last minute short break booked with ease. Owner very helpful and obliging. So nice to have fresh eggs and cookies as all as tea and coffee left for us. A very cosy and homely place. Small but not cramped at all and very clean. Lovely and bright with so many windows with lots of little birds to entertain you while you are pottering about or chilling out. If you like birds, this is an amazing place with dippers and red kites in the garden! Nice little garden belonging to the annex, which our dog enjoyed. You are free to wander around the rest of the grounds too where there are lots of different areas to sit and enjoy the beautiful surroundings and the absolute peace of the place.

“Beautiful and Peaceful Setting, An Absolute Pleasure”
Reviewed 14 February 2016 for a stay in February 2016

When we first arrived we were very pleased on how peaceful and quiet the accommodation was. We were greeted very warmly by Cathy, who is extremely friendly and helpful. Set in a beautiful area very well kept with a lovely river running right alongside the accommodation, and so relaxing. Once we entered the accommodation we were more than pleased , everything you could've asked for and more. Spotlessly clean and very comfy especially the lovely bed! We also had a welcome package on arrival that consisted of fresh milk, home made cookies and freshly laid eggs from the wonderful chickens, which were yummy ! Great location to explore from. Thank you again Cathy and Paul :O)
