    “Thanks Elaine for a wonderful stay, my husband and I really enjoyed our 9 night stay at The Dragon’s Den.”

    The place was so clean, the bed was super comfortable, we had everything we could possibly need. The location was great too, so convenient for our day trips out! Thanks again for everything, the complimentary Welsh Cakes were very much appreciated :)
