This is a wonderful poem written by one of our visitors. He has kindly let us print it here for all to enjoy.
Two steps from the mainstream,
But a world away;
Is a place to be away from the world.
Built on shale and soul amongst the green and rolling hills
Under trees that you can hear grow and sing,
Amongst the tamed but wild garden,
Tended with all the capability of Brown himself;
Stitched seamlessly to Yew Tree
Symbiotic, but fiercely independent,
Walls created of stone and imagination;
It is both coy and resolute.
A stoic structure gazing out inscrutably at its surroundings,
Modernity engineered out of antiquity.
Inside, is a place for peace.
A mezzanine for dreams.
from amongst the beams.
Painted wood and gnarled oak trace history
Across the rough drawn plaster walls.
Infinite corners and nooks
Jostle with the current,
To create a silence that is more golden
Than all the precious minerals in Dolaucothi.
Morning brings a feathered fluttering;
Frantic feeding amongst the shrubs and trees
That hold the building to its roots.
Colourful slashes across a green and pleasant land,
As finches jabber and chatter,
Crowding for the prized seeds;
The nearest to any rush hour you will get here.
This is a place for contemplation
For reflection and recuperation
A spot to find a different world
And discover…. yourself.

Our 2nd visit and certainly not our last! We love Lletty Cottage- so well equipped it is home away from home! Aberaeron on the coast is beautiful- painted houses and delightful little harbour. Great walk along old railway track from Llanerchaeron to Aberaeron . Llandovery market is on a Friday for local fruit and veg. Iechyd Da – health food store is a gem- a wonderful artisan bread and fresh salad leaves etc. Dewi Roberts Butchers Llandeilo has salt marsh lamb from late June- tried it last time- delicious. He also has 5 Venison sausages! Julia and Michael, Droitwich, May
We didn’t have enough time to do all the walks that are close by. So we have to come back. And we will. The health store in Llandovery had very good bread and other fresh food. We recommend this store. The owner is very helpful. You have a lovely place here , we’ll come back. Win and Renee, The Netherlands, May

A wonderful, relaxing and peaceful few days spent in your beautiful cottage. It was lovely to reacquaint ourselves with Wales and the Brecon Beacons and surrounding countryside.

Thank you for your friendly welcome and hospitality- it was much appreciated. Ron and Sylvia, Woking, July

This is our first time in this part of Wales and have loved everything about it. Lletty Cottage is idyllic and magic, so comfortable too.
