Lovely, friendly welcome. Excellent very cosy, clean and well equipped cottage.

5 of 5
Robin and Jan made us feel very welcome. The cottage was spotlessly clean and had everything we needed to enjoy a relaxing weekend. We put the well equipped kitchen through its paces and were able to cook great food with no problems. The surrounding area is very tranquil and we will definitely book again to see more of if.

Gem of an holiday home, perfect all round!

5 of 5
We loved our stay here, property is well located for the beach, shop, pub, takeaways etc. A short walk into town and a reasonable walk into Rhyl. Well decorated, equipped and maintained! Dog friendly inside and out with secure back garden and the added bonus of an hottub which we made good use of each night. Highly recommend! Thanks again I'm sure we will return :)
