Reviews

Fab cottage - perfect size for a party of six with a wonderful fireplace and living room in particular. The sauna was a massive perk! Really impressed with the way Best of Wales dealt with us and we had a wonderful holiday, thank you!Charis from Cardiff - 16th April 2018
The property was the most private and peaceful in all the self-catering properties we have stayed at, and we would recommend anyone who values these aspects to stay there. Christopher from Lancashire - 3rd April 2018
Made very welcome by Anwen. Any problems sorted out promptly & with no disruption. Beautiful cottage with loads of space in a very peaceful rural setting.
Recommendations: If you want a lovely beach & don't mind a steep path to reach it, try Porthor (Whistling Sands). It even has a beachside shop & café.​David from Selby, North Yorkshire - 4th July 2017
A holiday to spend time with friends.
