Lovely place in a fantastic setting. Highly recommended if you love walking especially the coastal walks. The only downside we have experienced is the shower runs to hot and then cold. There is no WiFi again but the shower is the main issueMore

Great accommodation in rural location. Ideal for cliff top walks, north Wales castles, beaches and generally getting away from it all. Comfortable spacious rooms and we really appreciated the wood burners! Hope to return some day.
