A brilliant stay and the perfect cottage for our family and our dogs. Great location as a hub for our Pembrokeshire coast adventures. Cottage had everything we needed, clean and everything in working order. Marie was brilliant and there to help us whenever we needed her. Highly recommend!!

What a lovely, beautifully clean cottage! We couldn't have asked for more. The welcome pack was lovely, and Mikey enjoyed the doggy treats. The area is lovely and quiet, we only wish we were staying longer.

Wow! What an absolute gem of a cottage Ty Ceiniog is. We've had a brilliant stay here, have been blessed with gorgeous weather and beautiful walks. Ty Ceiniog really is a home from home. Perfectly appointed, and equipped with all you could need and more. Marie and Bob have been lovely hosts and the welcome pack was lovely, especially the 6 fresh hen eggs from Marie's Ladies!! Will definitely be returning and also recommending to family and friends. Thank you Marie and Bob for a wonderful stay!!

Thank you for the stay. We enjoyed every day. Thank you for the delicious eggs, the waffles and the welsh cakes, and thanks for letting us know about New Quay Carnival. We had a great time! Also Sophia and I got our faces painted.
We visited the honey farm and thought it was very interesting. We liked looking at the bees.

I am so glad you all had a good holiday. We enjoyed the Carnival too, but were too busy eating ice cream to get our faces painted! Good to know you enjoyed the Honey Farm too - we haven't been yet, but I think we should! Thank you so much for taking the time to write this review.

We've really enjoyed our stay at Ty Ceiniog. The cottage was very spacious, clean and very comfortable, and thank for the welcome pack.

Thank you Marie and Bob for providing such excellent accommodation for a truly relaxing holiday. Hope to return next year.

Perfect get away in a beautiful location. Ty Ceiniog has everything we needed and it was clean and tidy. Guide book was very helpful and the welcome pack was a lovely touch. Weather was really kind to us and so we managed to explore lots of the beaches in the surrounding area. Many thanks for a wonderful, peaceful stay.

Really enjoyed our stay in your lovely, well equipped and clean cottage. First time away with our pup and we had a great time exploring the beaches and forest walks. Lovely to have such friendly and helpful owners next door. Thank you both. Hoping to come back soon.

We have really enjoyed our peaceful relaxing stay in Rainbow Cottage. Lots to do within a very short drive. Our favourites were dolphin spotting at New Quay, otter spotting at the Welsh Wildlife Centre at Cardigan and the beach at Penbryn...though the drive down for disabled drop-off was scary. The Cottage is well looked after and beautifully presented. We enjoyed regular use of the hot tub and relaxing in the garden with bird song. Thank you Marie & Bob.

We have had a lovely stay. The cottage had everything we needed and the surrounding area beautiful. We enjoyed the hot tub in the lovely garden. The only negative was we couldn't stay in the cottage longer and had to go home.

We have thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Ty Ceiniog. The cottage is scrupulously clean, spacious, comfortable and well equipped. Such lovely thoughtful touches such as the welcome pack and doggy accessories, were very much appreciated. We had a great few days exploring and revisiting places we hadn't been to for may years. We especially love Llangrannog - 2 stunning beaches, especially at low tide when you can walk around to the next beach.
Thank you so much!

Just returned from a fantastic weekโ€™s stay at Ty Ceiniog. The cottage was very comfortable, well equipped and spotlessly clean throughout. The location of Ty Ceiniog is tranquil and peaceful, tucked away just up the road from New Quay, but within easy reach of other towns and villages along the coast. Bob and Marie were great hosts and were very welcoming. We liked it so much we booked to stay again next year๐Ÿ˜Š

It was so lovely to meet you all, and I am really glad you had a good time despite the rain. I really look forward to welcoming you back to Ty Ceiniog next year. In the meantime, we really hope you have a good year - or rather 10 months!

Lovely spacious cottage - best we have stayed in. Loved watching the stars at night thru the velux! Great little garden for the dogs and everything provided for in the cottage. A great welcome pack for us and the dogs. So a v. big thank you Marie and Bob for being so helpful and providing gorgeous accommodation for everyone in a great location.

Lovely cottage, dog friendly walks nearby. Your guide was very useful, especially for the restaurants that were recommended, ideal in these times. Never been to the area before but loved it. Would recommend the coastal walk Aberporth - Tresaith. The NT cafe at Penbryn, Plwmp Tart - lovely cakes, coffee and sausage roll! Cellar Inn at Aberaeron and Daffodil Inn also good.

Had a peaceful, welcoming stay. Stunning cottage, set in a beautiful location with some gems hidden in most corners of the area. Hot tub was a lovely experience added with the countryside surrounding you as you relaxed. Bob and Marie have been great hosts, with lots of knowledge of the area & places to visit. Would definitely recommend to friends and family! Cottage absolutely spotless; covid taken very serious. See you soon x

Heartfelt thank you for all the thought, detail and finishing touches you put into our cottage to make our stay as comfortable and relaxing as possible. It really is such a beautiful place with so much on offer - we've not stopped all week, come rain or shine we filled our days. Wales and its stunning coastline has truly charmed us. A special thank you for introducing our girls to the chickens too - a real treat. We've made the most precious memories after a year of restrictions it meant so much.
Simply put "It was wonderful" Seren aged 3.

A beautiful cottage, really enjoyed our weeks stay. Thank you Marie & Bob for providing welcome pack. Boys and dog enjoyed the lovely beaches and walking in the green and peaceful countryside. Great sitting out in the enclosed patio garden. We all appreciated having a much needed break in such great surroundings. Thank you ๐Ÿ™‚
