Well we completely fell in love with Dolly during our fantastic week at Ffynnon Fendigaid. She was full of character, cosy and surprisingly spacious. We had no problem unpacking all our clothes into her well thought out storage drawers and cupboards. The kitchen was a good size and had everything we needed. The bathroom was modern and clean.
The grounds of Ffynnon Fendigaid are beautiful and we took full advantage of them one day when we went for a summers evening stroll in search of the pond, armed with a bottle of red and two glasses. Mowed paths, lined with head height purple foxgloves and grasses lead us through a maze of winding walkways; we felt like big kids discovering a secret garden, simply idyllic.
As we luckily chose to take our holiday during a heat wave, we were able to make the most of the very local beautiful sandy beaches. Penbryn beach is secluded and quiet and it is worth taking the walk down through the trees, passed the waterfall to get to the sand. We also visited LLangrannog which has a few eateries overlooking the beach (a great place to go in an evening for a drink and stroll to watch the sunset, we saw dolphins here one evening too!). Poppit Sands was another great beach we visited; a vast sandy beach with beautiful blue still water and a good cafe. I would recommend visiting New Quay as well.
We found plenty to do other than beaches. In particular I would recommend ‘Sculpture Heaven’ about 5 mins drive from Dolly.
We cannot fault our holiday to Dolly. She was novel and charming and the area was fantastic! Pretty much perfect!
We will be back!
