I travelled to Caban Nant Du with my family and my 6 month old and we had the best time.
The property was spotless and had everything we needed. The only thing was I asked for a travel cot but there wasn’t one in the property. Luckily I bought something similar of my own. Other than that, every single thing was spot on! We had the loveliest break & I will definitely be booking with holiday wales again – in fact very soon for a winter getaway with my husband for his birthday!
Thank you for such a lovely stay.

Absolutely beautiful location! The hosts couldn’t have been more helpful. It was absolutely spotless and my little boys didn’t want to leave. Everything you could possibly need was in the cabin for us. The view from the cabin and the hot tub were stunning! Couldn’t get the kids out of the hot tub. It was also spotlessly clean and turned on for our arrival. 10/10 stay, we will definitely be returning.
