“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.”

“We stayed from the 21st oct to 28th oct 2017. The cottage was lovely, well equipped and very cosy. In fact we loved it so much we have booked again for next year and our sons will be joining us in the apartments. It is in easy reach of the beach in a central position in Aberporth. Sharon showed us the apartments before we left which are also well equipped and very comfortable. In fact l would say the photos on your website don't do them justice. Sharon has been really helpful and nice. Can't wait to return.”

“A lovely cosy well equipped cottage in a lovely location. Weather mixed at beginning of week but trips to Cardigan and Newquay enjoyed. 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. The “Ship Inn” was visited on 2 evenings and serves lovely food. On the whole we have had a super week and hope to come back again. Thank you”

“Had a great time was a little worried it might be too small but it was perfect, the dogs loved it too. We saw Dolphins in the bay and did some lovely walks. 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”
