  • "Great apartment in a fab location with amazing views."

    The best feature of the apartment is definitely the views over the tidal estuary - whatever the weather or time of day the view was stunning. Away from the windows the apartment is well equipped and comfortable with ample space for our family of four plus dog. The friendly owner lives nearby and we were made to feel very welcome. Lots to do straight from the front door with beautiful beaches, walks and the downstairs cafe/take-away. More stunning beaches are a short drive away and the mountains and walks of Snowdonia are easily accessible by car. We had a brilliant two weeks and would recommend the apartment and the area.

    The whole place was spotlessly cleaned and we felt safe staying here. The bistro/tearooms below is amazing serving delicious food throughout the day. The view from the apartment is beautiful and you instantly relax watching the tide come in and out. We will hopefully return soon.
