Comments from the Visitors' Book
Had an amazing holiday staying in the cottage, just like home from home, everything we needed and more. We were very lucky with the weather and spent most of the time on the beach or crabbing from the harbour. Spent a day on the Talyllyn Railway which is well worth the money, getting on and off the train where we wanted to spend some time. At some point in the future, we hope to stay in the same cottage as we loved it so much.
Very good accommodation. Loved it here and would come back.
Beautiful place to stay, fantastic beach and great pubs, too!
Lovely cottage, comfortable and spotlessly clean. We would very happily book the cottage again.
We spent a wonderful week in Aberdovey. The cottage was clean with everything you could possibly need. Also, the location is perfect for all the facilities that Aberdovey has to offer. There are three good pubs within walking distance, and The Coast Deli and The Medina which did a delicious veggie breakfast. Highlights included lovely walks right outside the door, climbing Cader Idris and visiting Ynys-Hir (RSPB reserve) and the amazing spectacle of the feeding of 100 plus Red Kites at Bwlch Nant Yr Arian.
