The view of the Estuary is stunning. Even after 7 days. The surrounding is great and cottage was welcoming and comfortable. The local restaurant, Pryd O Dawd is a rare find. We had Two meals there.

Ideal location for accessing the beach and gazing at the amazing views across the bay. Take some ear plugs if you want a good sleep as the number of passing trains is considerable and run through the night. Ideal though if you want to take a trip via a train with the station being nearby.

Fab views from front of house over estuary with ever changing view. House well equipped. Train track is very close to the house with trains running day and a few through the night -be prepared potentially for disturbed nights. Hot tub lovely and lots to do and see around the area.

The property is stylishly furnished and very comfortable, with beautiful unspoilt views and easy access to the beach. We particularly enjoyed the views from the Juliet balcony, and the sun sets from the hot tub are stunning. Ferryside is a friendly village with a request train station, shop, cafe and a couple of pubs all within easy walking distancRead moree. There were a few minor niggles, however, we would definitely re-visit and highly recommend this property. Hide
