    Had a truly lovely time

    We stayed at Cwmmau Farmhouse last week and had a truly lovely time. It was a wonderful house to stay in, we cannot thank you enough. All of us have decided that NT cottages and holiday ideas are the best ever, and we plan to make the NT our number one choice for all our holidays from now on! Wish we figured this out sooner. It took this occasion, my husband's 50th birthday, to finally 'get it'. Every detail, every comfort, and every day that we were there was magical. Tears welled in my eyes when we had to head home.

    Made enjoyable....

    This was a remarkable house in a superb area, with great plants and birds on the estate and in the vicinity. It was very exciting for our grandchildren who loved the staircases and ambience of the house.

    Wow...we booked this for our family and my parents to celebrate my 40th birthday in style. This house is amazing and huge. Everything is here that you need. It is simply beautiful...seculded, historical spacious. Huge grounds. Amazing! Its so unique. We got to pretend at being ' lord of the manor' for a week. A lovely bunch of flowers on arrival, some provisions and a welcome note. A personal touch.
