Simply and comfortably furnished with attractive antique pieces enhanced by pretty, floral fabrics, the traditional Welsh blankets in the bedrooms ensure you will be warm and cosy. The double bedroom nestles in the eaves and offers both beautiful views out to sea and across the fields. The sitting room full of character with its vaulted ceiling, beams and exposed stone chimney breast with an open fire is perfect for relaxing on chillier evenings, while the gallery above is an ideal spot to enjoy a good book.

Lovely cottage, fantastic location, great for going on walks and jumping into the bue lagoon for some! Weather had its ups and downs but overall a great 4 days.
We love your cottage and thank you for the Welsh Cakes they were yummy....
We loved your cottage and its setting. Thank you for a most enjoyable week.
Superb weather and sunsets. Thank you for the Welsh Cakes and we enjoyed the apples from the garden with the blackberries picked from the path opposite. Very comfortable and we were happy to 'eat in' We did pick up a crab sandwich from the Shed before returning on the bus yesterday. Thank you.
Great holiday. We have body-boarded and blackberried, surfed and sailed. We recommend a visit to Ramsey Island for the wildlife. Baby seals sooo cute! This is a fantastic location.
We have had a wonderful holiday here in beautiful Pembrokeshire and been so fortunate with the good weather. Newgale beach is brilliant for big waves, Whitesands too crowded for us, very attractive local beach over the hill. Boat trip to Ramsey Island a real high light, saw seals and porpoises. Delicious fish and chips from The Shed at Porthgain. Towyn is a lovely cottage a\nd we have been very comfortable here, sleeping like logs every night after a day out in the fresh air. Thank you Mair for sorting lout the washing machine and clearing away the mud after the storm. Overall we have been very happy here and enjoyed celebrating our youngest daughter's 7th birthday in such a beautiful location.
Beautiful location. Great for beach side activities. Had lots of fun.
Brilliant short break (much needed) in this wonderful cottage and location. We have fallen in love with it and wish we could stay (forever). This stay has been more perfect than we could ever imagine, and although the cottage is so beautiful and cosy. I have barely been able to tear myself away from the sea front here! I already can't wait to be back, Thank you. Kim. We have watched coasteering every morning 'Brrrr' and managed a coastal path walk everyday - superb. So much love and care has gone into your cottage - we love the photos of its re-construction - cleaver and considered and so much a part of the landscape and it character. Again thank you - can't wait to visit again.
Thank you for a lovely stay. We enjoyed some windswept walks along the coastal path, amidst the wild weather. The shed in Porthgain - the best fish and chips we've had.
Away with our Birthday daughter, Twenty eight, Rachel, this week, Here with partner, Chris, And Gethin, our grandson, asleep, While they're out climbing the quarry, Making the most of their stay, It's sunny and scenic, so special, We'll have to return one day, An electric blanket went down a treat, Surprising her mam last night, While a hot water bottle worked wonders, We slept even more, than alright. Julia and Michael from Western. Are arriving here very soon, Glamorous Gran and Grandad, Will son be over the moon, Like us they'll love your cottage, A log fire crackling inside, An historic relic from times long gone, A bygone commune that died from a typhoid epidemic, And an storm that finshed em off, But hardy souls they must have been, In heaven, spirits aloft. So Dioch Mrs Riahcards, Rachel and Chris, for our stay, Don't want to leave so soon, But work beckons, Saturday! Best wishes from two proud parents and granparents, Goody Gramps -Gumpa and Nanny Twinkle, Vaughan and my beautiful wife, Diane who brought tears to our girl as we cought up with her and Chris on a little, but wonderful coastal walk! Now she then, made us so proud, once again.
A wonderful location with a very warm welcome (welsh cakes and daffodils) The cottage itself was beautiful and very clean. We fully enjoyed the experience. We did a couple of fantastic walks along the coast and would recommend these. Thanks Again.
Memorable stay: we carefully chose the 3 hurricane week to be staying on a west facing beach! Never the less, it was unique. Thank you especially for the warm welcome.
A wonderful weekend in a stunning cottage. Had lovely walks on the beach and along to Traethllyfn - good training session up those steps. Quite simply - we want to live here. Diolch Mama

A lovely cottage in a beautiful place. Next time we will come when the sun shines and the rain stops. Thank you.
We have so enjoyed being back in Abereiddy it is a magical place. Our first time saying in Towyn. It is a lovely cottage. We loved the view out over the bay.
I really loved this cottage and all the surroundings I especially loved all the wonderful seaside sunsets, I took so many pictures. The sea was lovely for bodyboarding and the Blue Lagoon was so much fun! I managed to jump off the high one! Overall this was a great holiday destination and I would love to come again someday.
I love this place! Asss it is right near the sea we can go to the beach when ever we like! The sunsets were absolutely ace. It was soooo cool when we found there were body boards in the cupbaord and we got to use them. The only downside was there is no phone signal or internet connection. So once again I LOVE THIS PLACE!!! Wait we also saw shooting stars here - ACE.
We have had a really fun time here. The views from the cottage are wonderful! It's so nice in the morning when we can just wake up and go down to the beach. Thank you.
Wonderful time in lovely Abereiddy loved the cottage and the weather was perfect. Boat ride around Ramsey Island was well worth the trip and the walk across to Porthgain was great. Thank you for sharing your bit of Pembrokeshire with us. Well enjoyed by everyone - we will be back.
It was wonderful to stay in this cottage, it has a wonderful location and we realy enjoyed the living room with the fire place. It's so nice, when the sun wakes you up in the morning (shining through the window above the beds upstairs) We had great weather (no rain at all), therefore we enjoyed long walks on the coastal paths. We will certainly recommend this cottage and we look forward to come back here again. Thanks for the welsh cakes aswell.
Finally back after 4 years!! as lovely as we remembered. Great week of relaxation and sea air. Mixed weather!! When the sun shone glorious!! Thanks for the welsh cakes and electric blankets!!

Lovely setting, great weather, nice house.
Bwthyn Bach braf iawn. Diolch yr fawr. (Little cottage is very nice. Thank you very much)
A Happy 2012 to Towyn! A great place to see in the New Year. Had gales - storm force winds all week but the cottage was warm and cozy(although we did get through a lot of coal) Brilliant, relaxing place with wonderful walks - despite the wind. Will be back when its warmer and hopefully see the beach everyone talks about instead of waves and spray. Many thanks for providing such a lovely home. (p.s. despite weather Alan and Don managed a New Year swim!!)
A lovely, relaxing week, did lots of walking along the coast round St David head. Excellent meal at Cwtch. Thank you for the welcoming cottage!
We've been coming to Abereiddy since 1999 when i was 7. It is still really anjoyable to sit and watch the coasteering from the blue lagoon. If you have a spere couple of evenings in August, go and see the plays at the Bishops Palace with Fetival Arts and visit the Sloop!
Another enjoyable break in Towyn. Our usual visit to "The Sloop" - lovely meal! Lots of walking and just enjoying the unique atmosphere of the place.
Wonderful cottage, wonderful beaches, wonderful weather, wonderful week! Thank you!
A totally cottage and location! A perfect start to our holidays back in Wales! We will be back!
Nice cottage, cosy beds, lovely views, fab weather. I got a photo of a Peregrine Falcon.
it was a very important date (Edwards birthday weekend) and could not have been any better. FABULOUS! We walked and enjoyed it all. We will be back!
Our 1st visit to Towyn but no the last. Enjoyed the beautiful & peaceful surroundings.
Thanks for the lovely welcome, we enjoyed relaxing in front of the fire and Abereiddy's exceptional beauty. Diolch. Thank you.
Only 4 inches of rain this week, but we had a great time and managed 20 miles on foot. Unfortunately it has been so unseasonably warm that we couldn't fully appreciate the cosiness of the cottage. It must be heavenly when its chilly.
Thank you for a lovely cottage. Have had a wonderful week with superb weather. Wonderful views and sunsets, lots of birds, bats, seals, didn't catch any fish, lots of shows, even a shooting star. Didn't want to go home.
Towyn is a very pleasant cottage to stay in! There has been very good weather and beautiful sunsets. Thank you for the tea on arrival as well! We'll be back next year for sure!
