Guestbook

We loved it here at The Straw Cottage, everything about it was great! The treasure hunt was fab! We really enjoyed fishing in the stream and spotting insects. We went cycling in the Elan Valley and the views were stunning and the ride good fun. Thank you Margot for having us here and making us feel so welcome. P.S. It was really fun having no electricity. It got so dark!
