This was a proper little find in the middle of nowhere but within easy reach of lots of interesting places. Peter & Becky made us feel really welcome (and their doggies) but were unobtrusive. The welcome pack of freshly laid eggs, butter, milk, jam etc! was amazing & most welcome. Everything about the cottage was quaint but up to date...

This was our second stay in Xidong cottage and it was just as good as we remembered. No mobile phone signals, no wi-fi just peace and quiet in a beautiful setting. The cottage has everything you need, including logs for the fire, and the welcome gift of fresh (still warm) bread, milk, eggs and flowers was lovely. The plans for...

We love this place and have been coming here for 6 years. During this time it hasnt changed a bit and this time we wanted to share it with friends so hired Squire Cottage also. Fabulous place to digitally detox...no mobile signal, no internet or wifi. Perfect! Lots to do in the area, particularly if your foodies like us. Can...

We just came back to Cardiff after a wonderful full week in Squire Cottage. We have been there in all 4 seasons and it never ceases to be stunning and inspiring. Our 4 year old enjoys wearing her wellies and visiting all the animals on the farm. Becky is always happy for us to join her on her feeding rounds....

Ok, so, I haven't written a bad review in forever and I want to be clear, there are many good things about Xidong (I'll list them) and the things that drove me crazy may not annoy others so much. However, as an enthusiastic traveller, I have to admit that the negatives, in my case, outweighed the positives. This cottage is...

I have only just seen this review on Tripadvisor, although I have already responded via our website. I am only going to say in response that I am very sorry these visitors did not enjoy their stay as much as they were hoping. The problems they experienced could have been dealt with if they had come to ask us at...

The cottage is in a stunning location on a farm and was easy to locate down a somewhat bumpy track (take it easy with low slung vehicles) . Cottage itself is beautiful with a large high ceilinged living area (loved the under floor heating) comprising dining and sitting areas; kitchen stocked with bread, eggs, butter and all sorts of condiments,...

Thank you very much for your kind review. We try our best to make our guests feel welcome and comfortable. There may be a secret to the more comfortable bed, as we added a 'topper' last year, which certainly makes it look more comfortable and obviously does the trick!!

Thank you for your kind words. It's true, we offer eggs and mutton for sale when available. Also fresh veg if we have surplus and I am working on providing a herb patch in the garden too. Becky

We visited xidong for the 3rd time over Christmas and once again left relaxed and very pleased with our visit. the cottage is beautiful and a visit to the hot tub to admire the nights Sky is the perfect end to any day.

We have recently returned from a short break here and will hopefully return with our dogs. The location is fairly remote and the setting very beautiful.

Thank you for your very positive review. One of the lovely things about this area and our cottages is that whatever the time of year, there is always a lovely view just around the corner and it doesn't seem to matter much what the weather is like. Do come back in the spring for a longer stay - April and...

We had a fantastic week at squire farm and will be returning (which makes me wonder if writing this review will end with it being fully booked and we miss out :-( ....so we better book soon!)
