    “(This was sent on our first day - no one replied and we were able to cope, but quite unhappy especially with the heating.”

    ) My husband Dr Geraint Jones booked this cottage as he needs to consult documents at th National Library. He says you have left him a voice mail asking if everything is ok here? I’m afraid this property does not meet with the high standards we’ve come to see as norm for your company. 1.heating problems It was warm when we arrived (7pm ) but by 8.30 the heating had gone off!

    ) My husband Dr Geraint Jones booked this cottage as he needs to consult documents at th National Library. He says you have left him a voice mail asking if everything is ok here? I’m afraid this property does not meet with the high standards we’ve come to see as norm for your company. 1.heating problems It was warm when we arrived (7pm ) but by 8.30 the heating had gone off! An early night, we thought. The heating came on inthe night ( about midnight I think) but has not come on at all, all day today - I chose to stay here and have had to put the electric fire on. There is a note on the boiler ‘please do not touch the boiler’ otherwise i’d have tried to do something! 2.There is a lack of basic communication on facilities here- -no info on when (if!) heating is timed to work; -I had to look on line to empty the dryer’s water tank; -two differing internet access Instructions; (There is however excellent information available on the area and locsl amenities). -I put a light on and the circuit fuse blew! Fortunately there was a torch and stepladder and i managed to find the fuse box- again this was scarey as we’d read that there was no one available to phone in evenings….and maybe this possibility needs covering in the info ? Especially for the elderly 3. This was to be mentioned in feedback, but as i’m writing now, here goes: This property needs TLC - even if it is shared by three letting agencies- someone should have noticed these bad points: -Shower has mould growing - oven gloves are ancient and frayed - table\ pot tricket / toaster are marked with age - the sieve is rusted - one kitchen door has no handle -Toilet roll holder defunct These individually could be ignored - put them all together and it suggests carelessness - a term i didn’t think to be one of Sykes’ mantras. 4.Lighting There are six table lamps in the lounge, so upon finding only one of the three ceiling lights working ( my husband has poor eyesight and needs good light to read) I went round the table lamps- only two had working bulbs, and one was damaged. Again, as a general point of action- could you ask owners to provide spare bulbs and check the lighting ? This could be a safety issue. ( i did search for spares). We are here until Monday, and i can only hope thatr the heating comes on at some time later today…. Definitely not your best, although the house is clean and well equipped. Dr Geraint Jones and Jina PS - there is food left in the property - tins, sugar ( opened) cooking spray - i thought this was no longer PC for lettings post Covid?

    Thank you very much for your comments and for taking the time to let us know your thoughts, we appreciate you highlighting the issues encountered during your stay. Sadly, we didn't receive your email. Guests' experience is very important to us and to that end, we carried out a first morning courtesy call and left you a message asking if you had arrived safely and settled in and advised you to call us if you needed any help during your stay. We didn’t hear from you which is unfortunate as we would have been more than willing to help. There are two telephone numbers provided in the travel details email as well as the property folder – one is for our office and the other is our 24 hour out of hours emergency number. As explained in the same email sent out to you prior to your stay, Britannia Cottage has had a brand new heating system installed and to regulate the heating to your desired temperature, you simply alter the thermostat is in the sitting room. We are unsure what you mean by the property being shared by three agencies. I confirm it is let by one agency through various channels. We have passed on your comments regards the kitchen items to the housekeeping team for their attention. We always try our best to make sure our guests' stays are as comfortable as possible and are sorry that this break didn’t meet your expectations. Property Owner

The property

Britannia Cottage is a superb property located in a sought-after position between Aberaeron and the University town of Aberystwyth, on the Cardigan Bay coastline.

This holiday cottage is ideal for families or groups of friends seeking a seaside getaway, with two beaches just a short walk away and access to the Wales Coastal Path only steps away.

Upon entering the property, you can look forward to spending your evenings curled up on the sofa with a good book or tuning into the TV or WiFi to share your beachside snaps with loved ones.

Next is the kitchen, where you can rustle up family-favourite recipes using the electric oven, hob, and microwave before gathering around the dining table, which can seat up to six people.

For sleeping arrangements, there are three well-appointed bedrooms: a double bedroom, a twin bedroom, and a single bedroom, where each bedroom features elegant decor and plush linens.

Outside, there is a space for alfresco dining, allowing you to enjoy a meal and toast to a wonderful holiday with your family as the sun sets over the Cardigan Bay coastline.

The village of Llanrhystud is a pretty village that offers everything you need, including a post office, a shop, a small supermarket, and The Black Lion pub, which serves food.

Within the village itself, you can explore Llanrhystud Beach, a beautiful sandy beach where you can stroll, soak up the sun, and enjoy stunning coastal views.

You can also visit the historic St. Rhystud's Church, which dates back to the 13th century and features intricate architecture and a peaceful atmosphere.

If you wish to explore further, you can take a walk on the Wales Coastal Path and enjoy the fresh sea breeze and breath-taking scenery.

Another nearby attraction is Castell Bach, situated on a hilltop overlooking the village, where you can enjoy panoramic views of the surrounding countryside.

Make sure to explore the vibrant town of Aberystwyth, located approximately 10 miles north of the village.

There, you can discover its historic castle, explore the promenade, and visit the National Library of Wales.

Other attractions worth visiting in the area include Aberaeron, Lampeter, Tregaron, and Devil's Bridge.

Experience all of this and much more when you book a stay at Britannia Cottage.

About the location


Aberaeron 7 miles; Aberystwyth 9 miles.

Llanrhystud is a charming village in Mid-Wales on the west coast, with three rivers, Carrog, Wyre and Wyre Fach, all meeting to flow into the sea through this quaint settlement. The area surrounding the Grade II listed church, St Rhystud's Church, is now a conservation area, with the village enjoying beautiful rural views as well as a shingle beach. Llanrhystud beach is great for swimming and general watersports, whilst holding views over the lovely Cardigan Bay. Pick up all you need from the local convenience store and garage, or head to the pub which serves classic dishes when you don't feel like cooking. An 18-hole golf course can be enjoyed on a pleasant day, while riding schools and a farm park are not far away and are great for entertaining the little ones. The Wales Coastal Path runs through the village and presents a fantastic way to experience the rugged coastline of Wales, enjoying pitstops at other coastal villages along the way, such as Aberaeron, a delightful Georgian fishing town which still retains its character and charm, head to the harbour and take a boat trip to see the glorious landscape from the coast and discover Cardigan Bay's marine life before sitting down in one of the several eateries.
