Chose this property because we thought it offered the opportunity to spend some time exploring without needing to drive to visit places. The property is part of a large estate which has many querky features that make it an enjoyable place to wander around. The quackery for example is much more than just a few ducks but an amazing mixture of plants, birds and strange statues and follies. In addition, a walk along the riverside should not be missed as it has an amazing collection of metal artwork that has displays great imagination and humour. The property itself is also unusual but very comfortable and the dining room gives a great view over the garden. The peacocks obviously appreciate the visitors and one would often sit on the outside chair staring into the dining room looking for something to eat but always friendly. Would certainly return if coming back to this area.

A delightful spot, with very comfortable and well furbished accommodation. The owner was charming and very willing to meet reasonable requests. Our grandchildren visited for the day and were made most welcome.

The service was excellent. Roger Good (owner) was very welcoming and helpful.
The cottage was lovely. A typical country cottage.
The Talhenbont Estate was absolutely beautiful. The scenery was wonderful and the grounds were very well maintained. Roger basically let us roam free on his estate. He kept an avery and just outside our cottage were a family of Welsh Harlequin ducks which were adorable. The tennis courts were just outside our door.
Porth Madog was just down the road and was beautiful.
We would definately return to Talhenbont, and would recommend it to family and friends.
