Property feedback

We have greatly enjoyed our stay at Bodorwel, super trips around.  Many thanks for the milk and wine.

Had a great time, lovely cottage.  Surprised how big it was as the pictures make it look tiny.  So was a nice surprise, many thanks

We have had a fantastic holiday and don't want to go home!  So much to see around here that we couldn't get to see everything.

Had a very nice break.  Travelled on lots of trains.  Enjoyed the cottage, second time here.  Hope to be back again one day.

Really enjoyed our stay.  Lovely cottage in a great location (loved the trains in the garden!).  We will return to see more next year.

We love your cottage and really appreciate all the extra touches such as tea/coffee, milk, wine etc. you've obviously put a lot of love and care into making it so welcoming!
