Lovely cottage with stunning views and amazing areas of natural beauty which ever way you turn. The hosts were lovely and if you want somewhere away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life to relax, then this is the place for you. Would thoroughly recommend Yr Efail and would love to stay again.

This property is in a really beautiful location in a quiet, green valley. Even though Yr Efail is the smallest cottage we've stayed in there was plenty of room and good storage so you could hide things away nicely. The garden was lovely and as we were lucky with the weather it was nice to enjoy some pleasant evenings outside listening to the sheep and the birds. All the facilities and amenities are of a high standard and everything we wanted was to hand and even though remote, there were plenty of places to vist and eat in, all within 15 to 40 mins drive through some stunning scenery. But you don't need to go far, we did three walks recommended in the guest book which were directly from the front door! Would highly recommend.
