Llety Hiriaeth is a very comfortable, spacious farmhouse with everything we needed for a family holiday. It immediately felt like home and there were some lovely welcome treats from the owner. It was very clean and quiet, so peaceful and relaxing with no neighbouring properties. The house is well situated to access many areas of mid and north Wales. Highly recommend and we hope to return in future.

Mrs N,

This property is a home from home. We have now stayed in this accommodation 3 times now and have never been disappointed. It is very well equipped and very clean. Its location is beautiful. You are surrounded by fields and well away from the main road so very quiet. Would highly recommend this property, most definitely a 6 star accommodation.
