We loved the cottage, very clean and well equipped kitchen, rooms were generous compared with other cottages we have stayed in. Ideal for exploring this area of Wales, the cottage and area is ideal for walkers. You can have a day off from driving and jump on the train, 10 minute walk from the cottage, fantastic coastal views from the train.
Only down side is there are no views from the sitting room.
a relaxing experience

Knowing the area extremily well and just wanting a quiet winter half term break with our five and six year olds, we were far from disappointed with Hen argoed. Owners were very friendly and helpful. Loved the history of the cottage with its modern amenities. As we experienced fab weather for February, the view at the top of the lane in a morning, and out of the bathroom window(on tip toes) set you up for the day. Can't fault it and wouldn't hesitate in going again or recommending.
A cosy, comfortable, relaxing all round enjoyable holiday.

Everything was ready for our arrival with no problems gaining acess to the cottage. The cottage was very clean and comfortable and stocked with all equipment you needed including coal and firewood for the fire which was made up for our arrival. The bedding and towels were freashly laundered and clean. As I have been going to that area of North Wales for a long time I know about the stunning views and surrounding beauty spots. The local shops are easy to get to with larger supermarkets within half an hours drive.
The whole time of our stay was very relaxed and it was great to sit in front of the fire at night and feel cosy as our stay was in the autumn and the nights are cold.I can honestly say that there was nothing about our stay that we didn't enjoy.
Old Farm property

When we arrived the beams and low ceilings brought a smile to our face. It was nice to drive up the track and see the farm animals around us and a working farm. The owners were very nice and let us get on with our holiday. The cottage is not for everyone but if you are looking for an old place with fire and character then this is the place. There is a pub in the village and Harlic is only just over a mile away which is slightly bigger. There are plenty of beaches nearby and a nice drive north takes you into lots of walking. We went in November and there were a lot of places closed which was a shame.
