A comfortable cottage with very good facilities. As we were staying there during the recent heatwave, the downstairs bedrooms were a good feature as they remained cool, allowing a good night's sleep. The welcome pack of biscuits and Welsh cakes was a nice touch.

We had a lovely time staying in Stables Cottage. The cottage is comfortable, cosy, very well equipped and is a great place to relax. With a selection of eating places and beaches to visit nearby it made it a perfect place to spend time with the family. Definitely one to revisit.

Loved our stay at Stables Cottage. It had everything we could possibly need. It was clean and spacious and comfortable. The location is great. Only a five minute walk to the pub and twenty minutes to the beach. We had some lovely walks along the coastal path and around the walled gardens. Would definitely recommend!

We had a brilliant weekend in this lovely cottage, it was really well equipped with more than just the basics and it felt like the owners had really considered how they could make it feel like a home away from home. The location was excellent and there was plenty to do for us with a young family. Highly recommended!
