    "We loved the cottage. Well equipped and comfortable The owners were very friendly and it was fab that you got use of their lovely pool. Had a very happy week 😁"
    Pete ‐ 11 Nov 2019
    "My wife and I stayed over easter with the grandparents and a 1 year old who was crawling everywhere. The cottage was lovely and we got some great weather. The pool on site was loved by all and an excellent bonus after a day exploring castles in the area. If you have children it's worth a drive out to Folly Farm - adults will appreciate the indoor and outdoor activities and the opportunity to sit a get a drink while the little ones play.Back to the cottage and our hosts we super friendly and had even prepared a welcome hamper for us on arrival. A short walk out and you can see sheep, plenty of wildlife, and the very attractive stream that runs along the road to the venue. Highly recommend."

    Rebecca ‐ 27 Oct 2019
    "We loved our stay at Gwili Cottage, it's very cosy, especially in the evenings with the wood burner going. We had everything we needed and plenty of space for the four of us. The welcome hamper was a lovely touch and the chutney especially delicious! It was great to have the use of pool. The walks nearby were perfect with the dog. It was so quiet at night, such a pleasure to have gorgeous night skies and no traffic noise. Would definitely visit again."

    "Excellent holiday. Murial was amazing. We had a lovely time exploring South Wales."
    Rachel ‐ 20 Oct 2019
    "A wonderful cottage in a beautiful location, so many attractions within 30 minutes.Fantastic for the 4 legged members of the family, and we were welcomed like a member of the family, but given all the peace and space needed!"

    "We had a fantastic holiday at Gwili Cottage, Muriel our host was very friendly and helpful. The cottage is well equipped and clean, in a lovely setting with easy dog walks."
    Barbara ‐ 8 Jul 2019
    "Our stay at Gwili cottage was lovely. The cottage was well equipped we wanted for nothing. We were left a welcome hamper containing local produce which was really appreciated as the cottage is very rural so on our arrival we were able to have refreshments without having to go out shopping. Use of the owners pool was a bonus and we made plenty of use of it as the weather was so hot. The owners were very friendly and welcoming and we hope to visit again."
    Jacqui ‐ 6 Jul 2019
    "Gwili Cottage was one of the best place we have ever stayed. There was everything you needed within the bungalow. It was comfortable, clean and the internet actually worked inside the property. There are fantastic walks for the dogs in the woods and along by the stream, yet very close to Carmarthen for shops and restaurants. The sole use of the swimming pool and sauna was amazing, the other bungalows have hot tubs. We would highly recommended staying with Muriel, Ian and their family who are all friendly, warm and are always at hand. Jacqui, Keith & Ryan (Kiia & Luna)"

Hosts were very welcoming and helpful and the pool is fantastic specially if you have kids.I would recommend to any of our friends!Thank you, we had a good time."
    Ruth ‐ 8 May 2019
    "We had a brilliant holiday at Gwili Cottage. It's beautifully decorated, spotlessly clean and really well equipped with everything and more that we needed for a great holiday. We were welcomed with a basket of local produce and seasonal flowers and Ian and Murial (the owners) made us feel very welcome and gave us lots of info about the area. We had some great days out. One of the nicest holiday cottages we've ever stayed in."
    Andrea ‐ 27 Apr 2019
    "We had a lovely Easter break at Gwilli cottage. The owner was very welcoming, and the property was nice and clean, and equipped with everything you’d need. We were welcomed with a hamper, including an Easter egg for our little one! Not long after arrival, Muriel came to say hello, and check all was well. She showed us around, including where the pool was. The cottage is in farmland, and we had a field of lambs very close by that we walked over to see one evening. It is well placed for the Botanic Gardens, and a few National Trust/ Cadw places of interest. We drove to the seaside up at Aberporth one day as well."
    Jo ‐ 25 Apr 2019
    "Gwili cottage is lovely. It’s the perfect size for a family of four, very cosy and comfortable. When we arrived we found a lovely hamper of homemade goodies on the coffee table and, to our 5yr olds delight, an Easter treat for her. Muriel (the owner) is very friendly and helpful and made us feel very welcome and at home. The local area is very pretty and there is lots to do nearby. I wouldn’t hesitate in returning to Gwili cottage or recommending it to others. Book it, you won’t regret it!"
    Hannah ‐ 23 Apr 2019
    "We had a really lovely time at Gwili Cottage. If you want somewhere a peaceful and secluded this is perfect. The welcome was lovely and the cottage was cosy, well equipt and spotless.Thank you."
    Sophie ‐ 23 Mar 2019
    "We really enjoyed our stay at Gwili cottage. Very comfortable and homely with everything we needed. Lovely to be able to use the pool and sauna. Muriel and Ian are friendly and approachable, we appreciated the extra touches like welcome hamper and fresh flowers. Lovely, peaceful countryside location with only 15 minute drive to local towns and interesting places to visit like Dinefwr castle and National botanic garden of wales. Would definitely recommend!"
    Pam ‐ 11 Mar 2019
    "Wonderful rural location.Excellent owner who provided everything one could need including a welcome pack for us and the dogs.Comfortable quiet cottage for a couple or small family. Quite a long drive to shops etc so bring food for first evening meal and breakfast unless you feel like going out. There are several pubs within a ten- fifteen minute drive but meal service finishes relatively early in the evening in most places."
    Louise ‐ 1 Mar 2019
    "A very warm cosy and peaceful place"
    Ian ‐ 6 Jan 2019
    "Gwili Cottage was absolutely immaculate when I arrived. This cottage was just perfect for me and my dogs over Christmas and New Year. While its absolutely off the beaten track its gets 10 out of 10 for those who want/need to get away from it all. You can take slow walks up the river or stay in the cottage and chill out next to the log fire. If your burnt out like I was upon arrival and need to gain some space, time out and relaxation this is the place to go for peace and tranquility. Points to remember - shop before you arrive as its a very long car ride to get supplies and read the very specific directions to get there.Gwili is charming, spacious, comfortable, well furnished and equipped with absolutely everything you could need for a self-catering holiday. It was a real honor to be the first guest and I was warmly welcomed with the most wonderful seasonal gift basket."
