Cottage was perfect, very clean, spacious and well equipped. Perfect for families
A very large and well appointed place.
The cottage was as described, felt a little 'cold' (not temperature wise) as everything like cushions had been removed due to Covid rules. Lovely gardens. Just a bit concerned that the fact that there were steps to get down to the carpark which may not suit everyone-e.g., the elderly or infirm.
Lovely cottage and setting, perfect for the family, Our young daughter loved it.
A lovely functional cottage which has what you need for an enjoyable stay. The cottage is in need of some TLC to modernise it to truly bring to life its full potential. Wonderful location especially being able to walk to the donkeys and goats etc. People should be mindful that there is nothing in walking distance, for those wanting to eat out everything is a 15 min trip.

It is the setting for a recent film about his life starring Kiera Knightly and Sienna Miller ' The Edge of Love' and the Dylan Thomas Trail takes you to many of his favourite places in the town.
There are water sports galore to enjoy - sailing, canoeing, windsurfing, kayaking, and fishing.

This small village has two fabulous beaches separated by a small rocky outcrop.
The more southerly of the two beaches is the most popular for families and for sunbathing while the northern beach is ideal for launching pleasure boats, including sailing boats, kayaks, and canoes.
Close to the beaches, there is a small seaside cafe, a souvenir shop and a friendly pub for good food and drink.
Mwnt (National Trust)
Off the beaten track this beautiful cove, surrounded by high cliffs, has a golden sandy beach reached via steep steps.
The sea off Mwnt is rich in wildlife, being a regular summer home to dolphins, seals, and porpoises.
The Church of the Holy Cross (Eglwys y Grog in Welsh), probably dating from the 14th century, sits on a headland above the cove and is an example of a medieval sailor's 'chapel of ease'.
Aberaeron Harbour Town & Beach
Aberaeron and its pebble beach is a Georgian jewel with elegant colour-washed houses surrounding the harbour - reputedly planned and designed by John Nash.
