24th May 2023 – Philip, Jane, Oscar & Dougie (the dogs)

A lovely combination of tranquility, simplicity, comfort and environmentally friendliness – we feel fortunate to have found it. Our stay (this time) was all too brief, but we commend Poppit Sands for dogs, Cardigan for independent shops, the supermarket in Newcastle Emlyn…..and Hiut Denim too (the reason for our visit).

Thank you for what you have created and established here and for your generosity of spirit in sharing it. The cottage is warm, comfortable and well equipped to meet our needs. The animals were a special treat.


1st May 2023 – Des & Charlotte Griffin, Belgium on route to Ireland

We absolutely loved our time here, even if it was short (1 night). We would definitely come back if ever in Wales again. The cosy cottage is perfect, with all the necessities. It’s so

peaceful and has a nice atmosphere to it. We loved seeing the alpacas, donkeys, cats and sheep. Our only regret is not staying for longer. Thanks for making our trip so enjoyable, this was the best sleep we’ve had since we left Brussels. You were lovely and welcoming and we wish you all the best for the future.


29th April 2023 – Gardiners, Wiltshire

Sadly we only had a short visit for a wedding but it was such a lovely, cosy, comfortable cottage to come back to. Wonderful to wake up to the sound of birds, sheep and cockerels. We’ll definitely be returning to make more of this wonderful place. Thank you so much for the warm hospitality.


24th April 2023 – Stella Waterhouse, Dorset

Lovely place to chill out un. Blue tits tapping at the windows, amazing animals, though one of the alpacas was camera shy. Had good weather for the first couple of days so went to Aberporth, great beach for dogs, had a long walk along by Henllan river. Two days light rain so pottered around Newcastle Emlyn etc. Thank you somuch for letting me share your little slice of paradise. Especially enjoyed the warm welcome and the “mix up with the welcome basket! My dogs thought it was a wonderful place to stay.


21st April 2023 – Ann Marie, Kenny & Riera, Essex

Beautiful little quintessential stay. Warm & cosy. Recommend watching the donkeys, they are so adorable & playful. Also visited by a guest last night, house cat! I’m not usually a fan but it was so sociable and ended up sleeping with me LOL! Thank you for being so welcoming. Pleasure meeting you xxx


19th April 2023 – Ivor Ough, Cornwall

Lovely stay, great accommodation, beautiful setting. However the highlight for me was when I came back last night I was greeted at my car by a lovely cat, who then waited outside the door and then came in and sat on my lap for about 2 hours thn went to the door to be let out. Thanks for lending me your cat, that made me feel really at home. Thoroughly enjoyed the stay.


12th April 2023 – Louise & Osian, Bridgend

A lovely, cosy stay here. We arrived in dreadful weather and didn’t see much of the outside area. We had a lovely cosy and warm night here, everything we needed was here.

27th February 2023 – Stuart & Trish Millson, East Malling, Kent

After a lengthy drive from S E England, Joyce & Alan and many delightful animals! Welcomed us to this wild spot, a plateau, high above Hermon & Newcastle Emlyn. We marvelled at the thousands of starlings in the late afternoon sky and enjoyed the disapproving look of the alpacas! As dusk and nightfall came, we retreated into the cosy cottage with its strong Welsh walls. Thank you for your lovely welcome. A healing atmosphere prevails.


25th February 2023 – Marie Ballagh & Family, Reading

I loved seeing the donkeys, sheep, chickens, ducks, geese and alpacas. The place is beautiful looking out on the West Wales Countryside. I also love that you had a fire pit for us to use.

The cottage is beautiful and very homely. P.S. the green in the bathroom is my favourite colour and I loved the crystals and salt rock in the window, Evie. You both made us feel extremely welcome, you are both lovely. Also thank you for the croissants etc., it was a perfect touch. I had an amazing time her, surrounded by the stunning sights of Wales. I felt so free in the cool breeze of Wales. I felt very, very, welcome and I loved the croissants, thanks, Leo. Just to re-iterate what the children said.

Sarah & Gaynor 

20th September 2020 

A lovely week relaxing and seeing the sights, just what the doctor ordered after a very difficult few years. It was nice to meet Joyce and Alan and all the fur babies around and so lovely that a robin came to visit on more than one occasion, having lost loved ones this was particularly significant to me. Thank you for everything. Hope to see you again one day. 

Jane & Chris  

22nd-25th August 2020 

We had a wonderful time here – there’s nothing better than the fresh air and waking up to the sounds of geese, sheep, chickens, dogs and alpacas. Joyce & Alan were incredibly warm and welcoming. We had an amazing time walking and exploring this corner of Wales and were glad to have had such a cosy place to return to each night. Brilliant holiday, thanks so much. 

Brad & Jen 

1st-8th August 2020 

Thank you so much for having us to stay in beautiful Comfort Cottage. Have already recommended to friends and family. Our little ones loved feeding the baby lambs when we first arrived.

Nic, Adam, Amelie, Daisy & Frida (The dog) 

18th-21st July 2020 

Thank you for sharing your idyllic life with us for a few days. Just what was needed in the midst of a global pandemic crisis!!! I’m sure you will see us both again. Jane sitting up the top with a glass of wine and a book, looking over the valley – as good as it gets – fantastic time. Checked out Surviviors – Jane remembers it too! PS the goose eggs ….. what a treat! 

15th-19th March 2020 

Thank you so much for being our back-up plan after a cancelled trip abroad. We’ve had a brilliant relaxing stay. Your hospitality has been second to none providing everything we have needed. We loved meeting the animals and thanks for the eggs. Great scrambled and poached! Comfort Cottage Healing may not cure us of Covid 19 in the future but it’s at least kept it at bay for now!   

Love Kirsty, Natalie & Amanda 

7th-10th February 2020 

Thank you Joyce & Alan for a wonderful weekend. We had the best night’s sleep ever – has to be the fresh air, only wish we could bottle it. Couldn’t see much of the surrounding area due to Storm Diana. Jane loved the animals and missed seeing Muffin so that he could say goodbye. We hope we can arrange to come back again. Many thanks. 

Mark, Jarrod & Jayne 

13th-18th January 2020 

Joyce & Alan, Thank you so much for the wonderful time we had at Comfort Cottage. Our dogs loved our time here and hope we get the chance to stay again soon.

Jen & Reuben 

17th-21st July 2019 

We received a lovely welcome from Joyce & Alan when we arrived. What a delight to see all the lovely animals, especially the alpacas, which we don’t often see and make us smile and laugh. We have been catching up with our cousins and had great days out in Cardian, Poppet Sands and Newport. Mikey, our lurcher, loved the open sands and Wales is dog friendly. Thank you for the welcome pack, we have had everything that we needed for a restful holiday. With love.

Wednesday, 10th July 2019 

Dear Joyce & Alan, thank you for a lovely 5-day stay. It was the first, yet the best, holiday to Wales that I have ever been on. I also liked the fact that some mornings you could or would wake up to the sound of the cockerel in the morning. I did find the dogs quite cute, even though they barked at me. Thank you again, Lots of love  

Miss Alexis Jane Wood xxx 4 hugs for everyone and all the animals that you have

Brief overnight stay on our way home from Ireland. Joyce & Alan waited up for our late arrival. Lovely cottage and welcome. Special mention for Muffin, cuddly and affectionate! Thanks again – will definitely return. 

Tina & Raymond, Redhill, Surrey

29th June 2019 

Thank you for welcoming us to your lovely cottage – it has been a wonderful visit! Joyce and Alan are warm and friendly folks. Muffin too! Growing up, we read novels stating the sweet scents in the air – we never experienced anything like that until we came here in Wales and to Comfort Cottage. The breakfast here is to die for as well! Cheers! 

Esther, Sook Hee & Susan 


23-29th June 2019 

What a fantastic week we’ve had here! We’ve been able to relax and enjoy the cottage and surrounding area. As well as having lots of trips out to explore. Really recommend Mwnt Beach, the Welsh Wildlife Centre and a visit to Cenarth (and the cheese farm!). Joyce and Alan have been so welcoming and we all enjoyed cuddles with Muffin, though not sure about the present!! It’ll definitely be a holiday we remember – for all the right reasons!! We’ll think of you later in the year when we’re eating our runner beans! Hope to see you again. 

Emma, Ian, William & Toby 

June 2019 

We arrived on a chilly, blustery, rainy evening, entering the warm, cosy cottage was more than welcome. We were met at the gate by Alan and Muffin who came out into the rain to greet us, then led us to the cottage, where Joyce welcomed us in. We were immediately impressed (but not surprised) by Joyce’s lovely personality and of the charming feel of the cottage. Muffin came in to visit and snuggle for a while which was such a treat, since we both miss our own kitten so much, she is such a little love snuggle Muffin! Slept so well, our stay here was too short but will hopefully be back to fully enjoy this beautiful place and experience.

We have loved every minute of this relaxing holiday. It is truly a rural gem. All of the animals have made a lasting impact on us and the kids, especially Muffin. You have been lovely hosts and we thank you for letting us stay. Will be telling everyone about Comfort Cottage.
Thanks again. Sian, Gareth, Jacob & Michael from Rhiwfawr

I liked the bed because it was nice and cosy and I liked the cat Muffin. I liked it when she sat on my lap. I liked it when we went in the wrm bubble bath. The breakfast was big, warm and very yummy to eat. I really liked the pattern on th window and I liked the coloured Camelion, Jemma aged 7 years.
Just one night ……….. just toooo short!!! Joyce, you have thought of everything, thank you very, very much.

Thank you so much for having us Joyce & Alan. The weather was mostly great and we missed most of the rain. Had another awesome time in Wales and we will be back. Was good to see some new places and museums, Cenarth Falls was spectacular. Childhood Museum is small but friendly and well stocked with many bygone relics of fun playtimes. Both are definitely worth a look as is the Woollen Museum close to the Childhood Museum.

Thank you for such a lovely holiday! The cottage is amazing, very warm and welcoming 😊 I was able to treat everyone to a spa day at Peterstone Court, Trip to the local indoor/outdoor market in Carmarthen and a lovely day exploring the Wildlife Centre, Cenarth Falls, Poppit Sands beach and Cardigan Island Farm Park. We have made many memories exploring th parts of Wales we haven’t yet seen. This was made even better by being sunny for our whole holiday 😊 
Thank you again Karen, Lucyann, Josh & Lennie
PS The animals were lovely to listen to and the cat Muffin was always around for cuddles and was adorable xxx

Thank you so much, Joyce & Alan, for a lovely experience. The snow was quite an adventure! We are so grateful for your advice and amenities and if we ever find ourselves in Wales again, we will certainly remember your lovely farm. It was exciting to see an alpaca up close …… and of course we shall miss dear Muffin! She was the best part for me, while Mum enjoyed the bubbles in your ample tub! Really enjoyed St Davids and our scenic drives and it was comforting to know we had a nice, warm cottage to return to, where we could cook in a proper kitchen. Shall remember you fondly.

Thank you Joyce and Alan for a lovely stay. Felt like a long lost friend coming to stay! Breakfast pastries were a nice touch, although they didn’t make it to breakfast! Came here for s workshop at the Wool Museum (an interesting place to visit) so didn’t get to see much of the surrounding area, which is a great excuse for another visit! Cottage so cosy and relaxing, with everything you need and lashings of hot water! Lovely to be around all the animals, even my anti-social labrador, Bruce, was chilled, although I fear Muffin has met her match in him! Thank you Joyce for the healing and unlocking my back! such a relief! Have told my family about this lovely spot so I am sure they will want to visit, as will I and hopefully quite soon!

I have found my haven away from the craziness of the Big Smoke! When I arrived I was completely depleted. I am leaving today (I will be back!) completely rejuvinated 😊 I slept and rested, breathed in the clean, fresh air, watched and “hung out” with the animals, pottered around the cottage doing some work I brought with me, and best of all, I had two wonderful Healing Sessions with Joyce. Thank you Joyce & Alan for sharing this wonderful place with us.
All the best Semsem Kukerhi

Thank you for the warm welcome. What a delightful cottage. Although not far from where we live, it gave us a chance to get away. A shame that a number of places were closed, despite it being half-term. We loved the Woollen Museum and the Quilting Cottage.

A beautiful little cottage in fabulous surroundings. Perfect base for a few days of exploration. Cenarth Falls, Mwnt Beach and Poppit Sands were our favourite finds. What better way to wake up than to the call of a Rooster and the smile of an Alpaca! Parker said he liked the cats 😊 Thank you for the hospitality, Jodie, Stacey & Parker
