“Perfect get away”
Reviewed May 10, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

It was so fantastic to find this place & Laura was very accommodating with a last minute booking. Its a little bit further out if Newport than we usually stay but with a baby the peace & quiet was wonderful. We liked walking straight out onto the coastal path for a wander. The twin & double rooms were a good size as was the kitchen,bathroom & living area. Would definitely stay again. Hassle free,relaxed & easy trip. Thank you Laura

“Lovely, peaceful, dog friendly stay.”
Reviewed February 5, 2015 for a stay in January 2015

The cottage was lovely and Laura was a fab, friendly host. We loved exploring this part of Wales and the beaches were just amazing.
The cottage was very well stocked with everything we needed and thanks for the delicious Welsh cakes on arrival.

“Lovely cottage in a lovely area”
Reviewed January 1, 2015 for a stay in December 2014

The cottage has everything you need, a good bed, good kitchen and nice lounge. It was warm even though it was very cold outside. The heating was on when we arrived and the welcome pack was a nice touch, The owners are very friendly and happy to give advice. The best thing in the location. Its a lovely area with loads of walks straight from the front door. Newport is 20 - 25 mins walk away depending how quick you walk. Newport has four pubs three of which serve food. There are also a couple of cafe's and a couple of restaurants. We actually ate all of our evening meals in the cottage so cant comment much on the quality of food, however we did eat lunch at Lou Lou's which was excellent. Three of the pubs in Newport allow dogs as does the cottage which makes it a great place to stay if you are a dog owner. Our dog loved the long walks we went on. Would definitely return.

“Friendly hosts, beautiful setting”
Reviewed November 28, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

Great spot for a stay of any length. The hosts are the perfect blend of friendly, professional and helpful, and obviously take pride in the welcoming atmosphere they create. The cottages themselves are charming and well looked after, and the location perfect. Its a fifteen minute walk to the beach, or a 25 minute walk into the town. We will certainly stay again, and would recommend to any family.

“Really lovely cottage and getaway”
Reviewed September 22, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

This was a last minute booking for a weekend away..and what a beautiful treat we found!
Cottage was clean, homely and had dishwasher/washing machine and...well everything you could possibly want!
Very quiet, off the beaten track but close to plenty of areas of interest..beach..castles..etc.
We did stumble a bit trying to find the location..the entrance is quite discrete when you are trying to find it in the dark! But I think that was more our fault!
The hosts were very friendly and made you feel at ease within minutes.
Would recommend to everyone and will definitely be doing a return visit.
Thank you Laura!

“amazing!!!!”
Reviewed June 24, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

the best short break ever ...fabulous welcome for both us and our two dogs, all facilities as advertised we couldnt have asked for more...ideal location for exploring either by foot or by car....we practically had to drag the dogs home !! a truly beautiful place ideal for a short or a long break, the peace and quiet was just what we were after but not too far away to go for a lovely pub lunch in newport or even poppit sands.

ps laura and andrew were amazing hosts we would go back in a heartbeat
