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.

Thanks for the wonderful stay in Rainbow Cottage. We have thoroughly enjoyed using the hot tub and beautiful garden. The local beaches are very nice and early morning dips have been fun. The cottage is well equipped and scrupiously clean. Covid safety has been taken very seriously, which we have appreciated. Bob and Marie are very friendly and helpful hosts. All in all highly recommended.

Had a lovely 2 weeks exploring a part of Wales we know well and revisiting old favourites. The cottage was very comfortable and equipped and uber clean - probably the cleanest we have ever stayed in. Bob and Marie were great hosts and very helpful. If they were not around we would email Marie and she would respond almost straight away. Tilly the dog enjoyed the country walks and we all enjoyed the tranquil and peaceful garden. We would definitely stay here again in the future. It really is a great place and great location.

Ty Ceiniog 24th July - 7th August.

Beautifully clean cottage, very comfortable with everything well thought out. Ruby really appreciated the comfy bed, bowl, treats and blankets. We loved having the garden to relax in each morning and eve. Enjoying the coffee and treats in the welcome pack - very thoughtful and appreciated. Lovely surroundings and in a great location for beautiful beaches and New Quay. We really enjoyed wandering around, a drink or two in the Penwig overlooking the sea, some crabbing & a boat trip. Thank you so much for your hospitality & thoughtful touches. We hope to come back soon.

This was our second stay at Ty Ceiniog and another wonderful, totally relaxing holiday. Even more precious during this challenging year! The cottage is still absolutely perfect - down to the tiniest details. Our canine babies were well and truly spoiled too. Plush beds, treats, bowls .. what an experience for their first holiday. Bob and Marie are absolutely amazing and the most wonderful people - we hope to see you again!

P.S. Cottage was superbly clean and totally Covid secure. We felt very safe. So sad to be leaving.
