The cottage was beautifully clean and well equipped with all that we needed . It was very warm and cosy so much so we didnt even use the log burner. There are some lovely walks nearby and lovely eateries in Aberaeron. We absolutely loved watching the abundance of Red Kites over the cottage , they were breath taking.
