Guest Book Comments

We enjoyed all time we sent in this unspoilt haven. I slept so well and woke refreshed each morning. We had great food in The Hive and super walks all around especially along the beach at low tide right outside the Gwelfor.

Christmas in Aberaeron was wonderful. Your home is welcoming and beautiful with charming dťcor, comfortable beds with breath-taking views. Our Christmas dinner in The Hive was delicious. Thank you for giving us all the home comforts and we will be back next year.

Excellent property in a lovely location. Owner very helpful when contacted prior to travelling and provided some very useful tips/information.

Graham Reeves - 28th October 2018

Had everything we needed and was spacious and comfortable. Great location close to harbour, town and sea. A big thank you to the owner who was incredibly helpful before, during and after our stay. We loved it and want to go back - so are anxious about leaving such a positive review for fear that Gwelfor will get too booked up!!

Edward - 6th October 2018

Aberaeron is a stunning little seaside town with a great selection of shops, cafe's and restaurants. Gwelfor is arguably has one of the very best locations in the whole town. Close to the amenities but with uninterrupted view of the sea. The house itself is thoughtfully decorated and furnished and our extended family of 6 people thoroughly enjoyed our stay over Easter.
