Ramblers Retreat Reviews

Wonderful cottage, beautifully furnished and equipped, beautiful countryside. So easy to relax here. We are sure that we'll be back.
Best wishes.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at your cottage. I was delighted to see my favourite kitchenware and bedding as it's quite rare that owners equip their property with such good items. We also enjoyed your collection of books and board games. Your garden is so magical. Flore enjoyed collecting wild strawberries and raspberries. We will definitely be back. Bonne Chance, merci.

From the moment we arrived we knew that RR was the perfect place for us to stay during our Gower adventure ! As we looked round the cottage there were delightful cries from all of us as we found yet another treasure. The cottage is beautifully clean and comfortable and obviously well loved by Janet and Mark. We have enjoyed exploring the beaches and look forward to returning soon.
Happy memories!

Thank you so much for a wonderful stay and making us feel so welcome at your beautiful cottage. We leave feeling very relaxed and revitalised ! We'll definitely be returning for more cosy nights in beside the fire !

Many thanks to you both. The cottage is fantastic, so well furnished with amazing attention to detail. We've both loved our short stay here-only wish we could stay longer-next time perhaps !
