Located within a mature Victorian garden and backing onto the National Trust land of Cefn Bryn, this beautiful cottage is a perfect romantic bolthole for a couple to enjoy.

Beautiful location, the best view of 3 cliffs bay from bedroom window, two comfy chairs to sit and drink coffee or wine, and admire the view. Also to watch the comings and goings of the garden. Quirky layout we enjoyed our stay. Marvelous base to explore from. Would definitely visit again.

Really good holiday, weather was bad with the storms but we were snug and warm in the cottage. Plenty of heating and hot water. The star of the show is the old school room bedroom. Fabulous view of the bay while sitting reading in one of the comfortable bedroom chairs. Relaxed inside and found plenty of coastal walks outside. Everyone friendlRead morey and nothing too much trouble. Wonderful holiday, came back refreshed and happy Hide

We had amazing stay at the Old School Cottage. It was very cosy and within walking distance from the beautiful coastline. We enjoyed long walks with our dog and admired the beautiful Welsh landscape. We would definitely recommend it and come back in the future.

Glorious view from the bay window in the bedroom with comfy arm chairs so you can watch the sun rise over the three cliffs. The best accommodation in the area. Decorated to a high standard with all you need.

The cottage and hosts were lovely but the living space was a bit restricted. Thankfully the weather made that irrelevant.
