We had one of the attic rooms. I had misgivings as soon as I saw the photograph. The room feels very claustrophobic. It rained heavily in the night, and with the roof window only inches above our head it felt like trying to sleep in a car wash. We didn't sleep and my unselfish wife spent much of the night... More

Just got back from a couple of nights camping here and it's been a while since I last slept under canvas. We did get some really good weather which helps but the location of this place is fantastic. Got there at 8pm and was greeted warmly by the owner who took the time to explain everything. Went straight in for... More

We stayed here for one night on the way to Ireland. It was perfect, excellent communication through the booking process and the family room was perfect. The B&B was clean and well decorated throughout, even the hallway was tastefully perfumed. If returning to the area I would stay again, the location was nicely located near the bay.

Had a lovely break in Seagull Cottage . The staff were extremely helpful and polite, the cottage was spotlessly clean and it was like home from home everything you needed was at hand.The sights were lovely to see and I would recommend it to anybody wanting a nice relaxing break away.

I stayed on bank holiday the breakfast had missing Items due to not buying enough yet I'm sure they would have known how many people were booked in for the weekend so could have bought enough food , the Monday was the same still missing breakfast items and the staff didn't even apologise or inform us so we could have...

Thank you for taking the time to review your experience at Blackthorn Farm. I am surprised however you suggest your breakfast had 'missing items' as we were fully stocked and did not run out of anything at all. Perhaps you ordered a 'small breakfast' instead of our legendary 'full Welsh' which has fewer items. If you had mentioned it at... More

10 of us stayed 2 nights over May bank holiday. We had B+B rooms and tent pitches and we loved everything. The campsite was not too full and had nice facilities, use of a fridge is really helpful for food and booze! There is a great view and easy links to nice walks along the coast, close to lovely little... More
