Very high quality accommodation. Fresh flowers and a hamper of goodies to welcome us. The views were incredible and we could just stand there and soak them in. To top it all the owners have a dog who welcomes you home every time you've been out. A perfect home from home.

Owner's Response: What lovely comments and thank you for taking the time to submit them for us. Glad you enjoyed a warm Welsh welcome, especially from the dog. As we say in Wales - Croeso cynes Cymreig- and liked the goodies provided. The scenery is stunning and we find visitors are happy to sit and admire and return again to do all the things they planned in the first visit. The area around Aberystwyth offers the best of sea and spotting dolphins along the bay and also great mountain walks for the enthusiast or a stroll along the Prom for the casual walker. Hope to welcome you back again very soon Suzanne- Best of Wales Team

Excellent - 5 stars all the way

  • 5 of 5

I would recommend this property to anyone looking for a peaceful break. The facilities were first class making for a very relaxing break. There are plenty of walks near by with great views. The property is in prestige condition and the owners are on site if you have any problems (not that you will but reassuring none the less).

wunderbar ruhig im Grünen

  • 5 of 5

wir sind drei Erwachsene und haben den Aufenthalt (1 Woche) sehr genossen. in 10 Min. waren wir in einem größeren Ort, in 20 Min an einem super Sandstrand, nette kleine Örtchen ringsherum, schöne Küstenwanderwege, sehr entspannend und erholsam. Von der Terrasse schaut man ins Grüne in der Ferne kann man ein Eckchen Nordsee erkennen.

Wir haben sehr kurzfristig gebucht (2 Tage vorher) und es war alles da, auch ein netter Willkommensgruß in Form von Kuchen, Cheddar und Relish. Die Küche, Wohnzimmer und Schlafzimmer sind geräumig und gemütlich und mit allem ausgestattet.

Einziger Makel, die Betten müssen dringend ausgetauscht werden. Das Doppelbett mit 140cm Breite ist eigentlich zu klein für 2 Erwachsene und die Kinderbetten quietschen ein bisschen.
