We have enjoyed a lovely week here. Perfect accommodation, we could have quite happily stayed another week. Wonderful hosts, nothing was too much trouble.The Enticknap Family and Max the dog, October 2015
It was our second time here in Basel Cottage! All we can say is: In more than 10 years of holidays all over Great Britain, this definitely is the best cottage we have ever stayed in! The location is fantastic, so peaceful, so quiet! Thank you Sue & Jonah for everything – we will miss Wales and Basel Cottage! You are fantastic hosts! We do hope that we can come back again one day!!Walter & Monika, from Vienna, Austria - April /May 2016
Perfect cottage, perfect hosts, perfect view. Only thing wrong with this holiday is that is has to end! Our second visit – can’t wait for our third. We love coming to see Sue and Jonah as much as the cottage, no wonder they have so many return visits, they’re doing everything right.Michele, Bob and Pickle, Shropshire. September 15.
A lovely warm welcome in one of the best cottages we have stayed in. Pity about the weather, but it did get better!Sheila & Phillip from Cambridgeshire, July 2015

Perfect!Chris and Marian from Nottingham
This is a wonderful home from home – everything that you need for a relaxing break. Sue and Jonah are perfect hosts and the Cream Tea on arrival was a lovely welcome surprise. The grounds are lovely for dog walking and Kukki does not want to go home! We explored the area and went to the National Botanic Garden of Wales – Monday’s being Doggy Day! There are so many places to visit and we loved sitting on the decking in the sunshine with a glass of wine! We hope to come back soon xxxShelley, Neil, Pauline, Ian & Kukki the Spaniel - Apr/May 2017
Delightful cottage, thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Highly recommended, thanks for the friendly welcome!Andrea & David from Mandrevillars France
Great welcome by Sue and Jonah. Cottage well worth its 5* status and the grounds were perfect for the dogs. Buzzards, woodpeckers and squirrels frequent visitors. Will definitely recommend to anyone wishing to visit this area of WalesShirley and Martin. South Ayrshire, Scotland. August 2015

Dear Sue & Jonah, Thank you for making our stay in Basel Cottage so enjoyable. The cottage is fantastic and we loved the area. Tyler is really going to miss you both and really enjoyed the archery and spending time in your company – maybe Jack will be walking when we return! Lovely cottage and grounds, such a fab family holiday! Thank you xxxDave, Rachel, Tyler & Jack from Somerset - August 2016
We’ve spent two glorious weeks here in this beautiful cottage and stunning surroundings. A great property for Flint and Ruby to run freely – can’t fault anything. Perfect hosts thank you!Moira, Peter, Ruby and Flint - September 2014

Love all the McCelland Family xxxKeith, Marlene, Llyan, Logan & Dixie 🐕 from Peterborough - July / August 2019
Our 2nd stay at this fantastic cottage. Sue and Jonah gave us a very warm welcome and looked after us well during our week. The cottage was beautifully decorated for Christmas and the log burner gave it an extra cosy feel. We have really enjoyed our stay over the New Year and will definitely be back soon. Thanks Sue and Jonah! XMark, Carol & Callum from Wiltshire - Dec 2017 - Jan 2018
Thank you Sue and Jonah for a wonderful ‘welcome home’ after 3 years and for the delicious Cream Tea on arrival. Had a great time in the woods with the dogs and roaming on Pembrey Beach ( the dogs not US!) Hope to see you again soon!Peter, Anne, Bronte and Milo from Herefordshire - October 2017
From the moment Sue telephoned me at home before starting our holiday, I felt totally reassured by the current measures she had undertaken in the present climate to ensure that we had a relaxing holiday. We received a very warm welcome from Sue and Jonah on arrival at Basel Cottage – they are excellent hosts. This holiday home is a credit to all their hard work. Well appointed home with a fascinating history, set within glorious grounds. Enjoyed the walks straight from the door especially the woods. Wishing you both and your lovely dogs all the very best for the future.Liz, Tim, Cerys🐕 and Megan🐕 from Cirencester - July 2020
