The square-sided lighthouse stands on the southerly tip.

We were not disappointed. More so over the following days filled with sunshine, the spectacular view of the sea and coastline was sumptuous. The house is spacious, modern but with enough open brick work to make it feel homely. The bedrooms were fantastic, well made and spotless. The multitude of shower rooms made for easy mornings and no rushing. The kitchen was open, well designed and filled with all needed equipment. The gift basket in the kitchen was a nice authentic touch. And the patio windows perfect for eating inside or outside at the front. The games room offered great intertainment from air hockey to table tennis, the barbecue grill was great and easy to use. The location was ideal with nearby beaches easy to visit. A quiet area, we were never disturbed or intruded upon at any point. The lady who runs the property was there to pleasantly welcome us and offer advice regarding the property and surrounding area. What more can we say? A fantastic property, highly ideal for any family planning a visit to this side of Wales. We highly recommend it!

The properly was stocked with all you could hope for in a holiday cottage and was ideally placed; being in a secluded spot, yet close enough for Aberdaron to be accessable. The cottage was very comfortable and, being so close to the stunning Porth Ysgo was an absolute bonus!
