Thanks again for yet another lovely stay at your cottages. it really is a wonderful place to have a break, even if it rains. matthew and jonathen say that the chickens aren't laying enough, as there were no eggs this morning. Thank you for letting us go in with you each morning. That sort of thing means so much to them at that age.

Just wanted to drop you a quick note to say thanks for a great weekend, and making us feel so welcome. Gaer Cottages are truly beautiful, in what must be one of the most tranquil settings in Europe.
Look forward to seeing you again.

We would like to say many thanks for a wonderful holiday. Shippon was all we could wish for, and the peace and quiet was loveley! We managed to see something new every day as we hadn't been to this part of Wales before. We will certainly recommend your facilities to all our disabled friends (and others!) Hope we will be able to come again!

Chantelle Stayed in Daniel Ddu, Aug 2006
This is a really great place, the swimming pool is fun. If you have children you can feed the animals and they can play on the play area round the corner. The beds are really comfortable.
Have a great time staying here!!!

JUlie & Dave Porter Stayed in Shire, Jul 1990
We had a fantastic time in Shire , even before the new extension was put in. The surroundings are beautiful and so central for the coast, mountains etc. My handicapped son and 2 daughters realy loved the farm animals and wildlife too.
We have recently revisited for a look around to find out about the disabled facilities, which are now great, with a view to bringing my son back to stay again and this time to use the swimming pool etc. Looking forward to staying next year probably!

helen and martin ross Stayed in Shire, May 2005
Had a lovely weeks holiday stayinf with out two daughters Maddy and Olivia, and another family, Steve, Heather and their two daughters Caitlin and Cara. Cottage was spacious and had everthing we needed (except a cafetierre which was generously lent by the owner at bno extra cost!)
The children in particular loved the pool and feeding the animals. Great base for visitinf local attractions. we painted ceramics, visited Pembryn beach, a goldmine and went on a boat trip from Newquay. Abaraeron is a nearby seaside town with parks for the children as well as a pretty harbour.
Will definitely return on the future as there is so much more to do and see.

Roger Beck Stayed at Gaer Cottages, Dec 2005
I stayed at Gaer Cottages over the new Year period 2004/2005. It was a most enjoyable time, very warm and friendly environment with a super firework display and party to herald in the New Year. Every one thoroughly enjoyed the New Year celebrations. The only difficulties being having to get up the next morning an drive back to Watford. I will certainly re book for next year but stay an extra day and enjoy the country side more.

A brilliant weekend. Very relaxing and we loved the swimming pool. Our children adored feeding the animals. Nothing was too much trouble for the hosts. I hope we'll come back again.

Natalie, Ken, Nathan and Cameron Stayed in Daniel Ddu, Oct 2001
We've stayed in both Daniel Ddu and Mynach - and both times had a fabulous holiday.
The boys loved feeding the animals, climbing in the play area, messing about by the stream and visiting local beaches. And of course using the lovely pool - twice a day for every day of our holiday!!
We loved the relaxed atmosphere of the place and the great welcome that we received.
See you both in June!

Many, many thanks for a wonderful holiday, it's been just great. Left early so didn't get a chance to say good bye and thanks.

Mrs Tina Tomkins Stayed in Daniel Ddu, Feb 2001
I am just sending you a short note to say thank you again for a wonderful weekend. This was our second visit to your great cottages, and I'm sure it won't be our last., we went to the White House to watch the Red Kites feeding and it was a sight we are glad we didn't miss. The children had a great time even though our son was poorly with an earache. Thank you once again and hope to see you again very soon.

Lisa and Chris Fradgley Stayed in Daniel Ddu, Dec 2000
Chris and I got married from Gaer Cottages. We had our reception in the games room and our guests stayed in all of the cottages. We had an absolutely fantastic time. If you're only considering going to y Gaer, then I can honestly say that you won't regret it.
