Reviews

Fantastic location, very spacious good stay. We stay in the area quite often so knew all about it before booking.

francis NEIL W,

Aberdaron is a perfect location for a peaceful holiday near the sea but with enough local amenities for there to be no need to drive to get basic amenities or to eat and drink out .
