Thank you for a lovely break! The views are to die for! Probably the best in all the places we have stayed in Wales! The house is lovely, comfortable, with a lovely homely feel. I had my 60th birthday here – it was great! All the family at the weekend, and friends during the week. The weather was kind to us – we sat in the outside with mulled wine. We found the path to the beach, definitely one for the fit amongst us, but gives you the spirit of adventure! We appreciated the welcome of fire, fresh bread, wine and lovely jam & honey! Thank you for a lovely holiday – one to remember!

Have enjoyed seven days with the Grandchildren, great views and a lovely garden to keep the children happy. We couldn't have found anywhere else to better it. Thank you Jane & Reg


Vera & David Snelson

The house is above expectations the view is breath taking and Jane & Reg were very nice and helpful . Every thing we needed we found in the house The house was very clean, comfortable and has easy access to the attractions in the area. The beach is 130 steps from the house but worth the effort. We had a wonderful time. Hafod Wen is at the top of my rental by owner houses list in the whole world . I will come back again and again.
