JJ Croarly

What a little gem Aberaeron is. A lovely village/town with amazing sunsets, and beautifully painted properties. The house was the quietest we have stayed in and the beds were very comfortable. And the location was excellent for us all. Thank you very much.

Ratcliffs and Bettons, Cheshire

Lovely clean house, and really good base for doing all sorts of things. We really enjoyed an evening walk and drink at the Prince of Wales at the back of the house. Landlady was really friendly and there was table football / pool room for the kids.

The Potters (Guildford)

Our second visit to Minawel and sure it won’t be our last! Lovely break with the family - doing a whole lot of nothing! The weather was very kind to us - even managed a BBQ! Delicious meal at Summer Grill  (Manuka) and further afield at Y Talbot, in Tregaron. Sorry to be leaving….
