Granary Cottage

Guestbook

My girls (age 7 & 3) absolutely loved the treasure hunt, roasting marshmallows and exploring the grounds. We had such a lovely time and really managed to "switch off". We didn't miss the mod cons at all!! We also enjoyed visiting the dams in the Elan Valley. We really do hope to visit again and will most certainly recommend the Straw Cottage to friends and family. THANK YOU!!
