  • “Nothing wrong with the accommodation , the beach is hard to access due to large boulders so probably needs a mention.”

    Fairbourne the next village has the same problem but can’t have everything. The railway service is great and inexpensive and you can even get to Birmingham from the village. Enjoyed the area with beautiful scenery, unrivalled anywhere.
