“The well appointed ground floor flat was suitable for someone who has mobility issues. Two bathrooms, one en suite helped with the luxurious feel of the flat. Good quality crockery and cutlery modern furniture. Very comfortable beds and good quality linen. Central position for the beach, with views of the sea. Helpful owners.”

“We really enjoyed our week by the beach in Aberporth. The Penny Black is a lovely little flat in a great location, which will be even better when the local pub and fish and chip shop are open! (Roll on the end of lockdown!)
The flat is well equipped and Samantha was quick to respond to any queries. There is a hose outside which was great for washing our dog after a walk on the beach. We would definitely book again.
NB: The parking space provided is very narrow - we actually used the car park close by and put money in the honesty box.”

“Lovely touches like the welcome pack and Christmas tree made us feel really welcome. Accommodation was spotless and had everything we needed, really comfortable sofas and beds. Location was excellent, we had the dog with us and he loved his morning walks on the beach and along the coastal path to Tresaith. Will definitely be back and have recommended to family and friends.

It was beautifully clean as always.
Excellent communication and instructions to keep Covid safe from the owners.
Such a great location opposite the two lovely beaches and to visit the nearby beautiful areas such as Tenby St Davids and the fabulous Blue Lagoon.
We will definitely be returning
Thank you”

“The Old Post Office is a tremendous property with fantastic views. The apartment is tastefully furnished to a very high standard and fully equipped with many little extra touches, such as a small sewing kit and first aid kit (neither of which were used, thank goodness). Sam had left coffee, tea, milk, welsh cakes, a bottle of wine and fresh flowers - what a nice touch!
The chip shop two doors up is possibly the best one in Wales and whilst the welcome in the Ship next door is not as warm as it could be, the food is good quality and value.
All was exactly as Sam had said with key availability and directions.
Really hope to return as soon as we can!”
