Very nice cottage, wonderful and lovingly chosen decorations everywhere in the rooms so that one easily feels familiar with the house. We especially loved the attic room (perfect for older children) with the window to the stars at night and the gardens with the fantastic view over Aberdovey to the sea. Great kitchen equipment (even picnic boxes for the day at the beach) and every thing you need to cook a decent mealMs Miriam Dorsch - 14th August 2018
