It takes little more than that first view of Clydey Cottages to understand exactly why it has won Best Place to Stay in Wales almost annually since 2010. The views, over meadows, hills and woodland, are spectacular and the picture perfect 18th century stone exteriors of these pretty farm cottages are utterly charming. Later comes the relaxed feeling of being able to let your little ones 'off the leash' and roam freely amongst 20 acres of beautiful grounds, by which time, most people are just about ready to move in full-time themselves, especially now there's a complimentary children's club/creche!

Owners, Dewi and Jacqui Davies ditched their briefcases in favour of tool belts and completely renovated the cluster of 10 cottages in mid 2003. The results are luxurious, comfortable and exceptionally well-equipped homes-from-home with interiors that are stylish, although leaning more towards sympathetic than contemporary. The indoor and outdoor hot tubs, indoor heated swimming pool, spa suite offering Decleor treatments and sundeck, with breathtaking views, ensure relaxation comes easily to parents, whilst mini guests adore getting involved with the farm thanks to the daily animal feeding and egg collecting rounds. If that doesn't wear them out, then being free to roam the almost traffic free grounds, well-equipped timber play area and a fantastically well-equipped indoor playroom with soft play and cosy coffee corner for grown ups, along with swimming in the indoor pool, is sure to have the desired effect, which will allow parents to indulge in pre-bookable hampers of fresh, organic local breakfast goodies and the excellent range of 'Cook!' gourmet ready-meals available in the honesty larder.

Recently, Clydey has introduced a complimentary creche and kids club which is run by CRB checked and qualified staff two days a week. This gives parents the ideal opportunity to sneak off to the new spa suite and sample on the indulgent Decleor branded treatments or one of the weekly Baby Massage classes. During school holidays there are also regular circus skills and woodland adventure sessions, which parents are welcome to join in with too.

  • My only concern is that by writing about my stay at Clydey, there is the risk that more people discover it making it harder to book in the future. If there is a negative, it is the lack of mobile reception and poor bandwidth on wifi, but one could argue that this is part of the charm.Review dated 09/01/2018

  • We had an absolutely fantastic holiday at Clydey in August 2017. So good, we're going back next week. The set up is perfect for parents with babies and young children and animal feeding each morning was a real highlight. There is a reason (or several in fact) why so many families keep coming back!Review dated 24/10/2017

  • Absolutely brilliant service! Would recommend to anyone with young children. "Farmer Malcolm" was fantastic with the kids! In saying that every single staff member was lovely. They know all the kids by name and do everything to make you feel welcome and at home!Review dated 03/07/2017

  • Attention to detail and consideration for young families needs was fantastic, very refreshing. Staff are outstanding, especially farmer Malcolm, the daily animal feeding added something special to our holiday.Review dated 01/05/2016

  • Beautifully restored cottage in a stunning location. Perfect for a couple with a smallish baby. The facilities at the site are incredible, with an indoor heated swimming pool, hot tubs, soft play and games room available 24 hours a day. Everything has been thought of here, right down to the (free) coffee machine and sofas in the soft play room, for adults to chill out while their little ones play, and a playpen and proper changing table by the pool. Foxglove Cottage is beautiful, comfortable, and spotlessly clean. If you're over 6 feet tall, you may struggle a little in the bathroom, where the average ceiling height is about 5'6" though!Review dated 22/09/2014

  • The amenities were brilliant and our 11 week old had a brilliant time.Review dated 31/07/2014

  • As a child friendly cottage we havent been anywhere better.Review dated 09/09/2011

  • Absolutely idyllic setting, beautiful 'base camp' for day trips.Review dated 17/06/2011

  • We will be back! We love this place and so do the kids. Foxglove is cosy but not a squeeze for 4 of us at all. We hardly had to spend on entertaining the children with all the fantastic facilities and wonderful beaches nearby. Clydey has everything you can think of as a parent. Easter egg hunt was such a bonus and great for the kids.Review dated 06/05/2011
