The enclosed garden was really lovely, ideal for children and pets. The stream that runs along the bottom of the garden is a lovely therapeutic sound, so very relaxing. The Bara Brith cake was a nice welcome too. The beach hut is excellent, we didn’t get chance to use it as that part doesn’t allow dogs although we did have a walk up when it was quiet just to check it out, could see that it would help make a lovely holiday perfect. The beach is lovely, just five minutes walk from the cottage, the sunsets are amazing. Would highly recommend Arwel and are hoping very much to return.
