28TH DEC -4TH JAN 2014
We escaped the city at New Year and enjoyed a wonderful, peaceful time in this cosy cottage. The warm welcome, mince pies to die for, generous hens and a peanut-feasting woodpecker all added to the magic. Memorable days were spent exploring the limestone cliffs at Craig y Cilau, and Llanthony Priory and Hay-on-Wye. We wish we were snowed in and didn't have to leave! Like so many who have been here, we look forward to coming again. C, N, & J, Manchester
