Reviews

The property is an absolute gem, wonderful in every way from driving up and stepping in, to comfort and amazing views. The owners are lovely and the cottage is a credit to them and to you at Wales Cottage Holidays. Thank you for a super holiday.Mr Neil Jones - 16th May 2018
It was just lovely. We were in Aberystwyth for our nieces wedding and Cae Bach was just perfect...just wish we'd had more time in it!Couple from Hertfordshire - 29th August 2017
This property surpassed all our expectations. Ultra stylish yet very homely, great location for access to the town yet very tranquil and secluded. Superb facilities and the view is outstanding. Cute, colourful seaside villages in either direction. Great walks and countryside all around. Loved the visit to Devil's Falls.Couple from Cumbria - 2nd September 2016
