“An excellent week in this little cottage, we were made very welcome and the cottage is very clean and comfortable, just a few minutes to the two Sandy beaches and grassed areas to sit and watch the world go by.. The fish and chips were very good and a great setting overlooking the sea, the two little doggies had a great time also and met many new four legged friends, the cottage has a lovely secure courtyard area for them to enjoy as well, we hope to come back before too long..”

“Stay 21st to 28th August 2021.
A lovely homely cottage. The recently added patio area (with BBQ facilities) is great.. a cozy sun trap out of the breeze.
The patio, being enclosed also gives any dogs a space to get outside.
Only a 5 minute walk to the nice beaches at Aberporth.
Owner Andy is a lovely friendly fella, and I’m sure if there were any issues (we never had any), he would be on hand to sort ASAP.
On arrival, there are tasty welsh cakes, plus other goodies.
Would highly recommend.”

“The cottage is cosy and well equipped with good attention to detail and was spotlessly clean. The outside, patio area is well equipped and is also 'dog escape proof' which was a definite plus for us. From the cottage it is a 4 minute walk to an excellent beach and the cottage is ideally situated within 2 - 3 minutes walk of a well stocked convenience store, a pharmacy, a laundrette, a hardware shop, a pub and a takeway food shop. The owner, Andy, is a very kind man and could not have been more helpful. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay there and hope to visit again. We have already recommended the property to friends.”

The lovely beach here in Aberporth provided a wonderful playground for our grandson as did the local football pitch. The local people were very friendly.

Both pubs in the village let dogs in and we found that most on the coastal path also do. At Treseith it was great for launching our Kayak also here in Aberporth. The café with the beach huts does fantastic baguettes. Wish we could stay longer”
