Comments from the Visitors' Book
Another wonderful week here in your lovely apartment & in Aberdovey. Some fantastic walks & absolutely amazing weather – walking in t-shirts at the end of October! Will definitely be back again next year, together with the dog!
A lovely light and comfortable apartment. Enjoyed our stay in Aberdyfi as usual, managed Snowdon this year instead of Cader, will be back soon.
Never been to this area before, but would be certain to come again. Apartment very warm, cosy & comfortable. The dog will take from now to Christmas to recover from all the swimming. Thank you for a nice week.
Fantastic apartment, warm, cosy with great views. Dog loved the beach & then looking at the beach from the bay window. We’ll be back in February, thank you so very much.
We’ve been to Aberdovey loads of times but never had such a lovely apartment. The rest of the family stayed in a house up the road so we had a great time with them & came back to a quiet environment! Best of both worlds. Beck our King Charles loved the sand & walks we went on. Thanks for everything, will be back again.
