What a wonderful holiday...

We had a wonderful holiday staying at Castle Rock. The house has a superb location - just a short walk from the beach and village. The house was immaculate.

Truly unique...

Castle Rock is a truly unique property. It is decorated so tastefully and full of quirky furniture and vintage finds. It is so well equipped with every possible thing you could need, from magazines to board games and all the plates, cutlery, glasses and kitchen equipment you could possibly want. The beds are so comfortable with good quality bed linen and towels. It was so relaxing there with the sound of the waterfall opposite the house. Just a couple of minutes walk from one of the nicest beaches in Wales. Castle Rock fulfilled all of our expectations. Delightful and highly recommended.

Beautifully decorated...

Beautifully decorated cottage with loads of space. Perfect location for walks on the coastal path and popping into the village by the beach. There is a general store, cafe and two pubs nearby. The house had everything you could need and it's situated in a very special part of Wales. Thoroughly recommend staying here.

Beautiful location...

Beautiful location. Lovely accomodation. Excellent owner. Comfortable sofas, comfortable beds, well equipped kitchen, all clean and fresh. Cottage has an array of board games and dvds to entertain between outings. I didn't hear a peep about videogames all week. 2 minutes walk down to the beach which is served by 2 pubs, both serving food, an ice cream parlour/coffee shop, chip shop/restaurant, and general store selling everything from butter to wetsuits (make of that what you will). Spent our last night sitting on a pub bench above the beach with a glass of wine watching the sunset while our kids played just metres away on the beach. And it was after pyjama time...... In short we can't wait to go back.

What a joy!

What a joy! Castle rock is a lovely house. the rooms are large and well furnished, this would suit a couple or family. A good sized, well appointed kitchen allows you to cook to your hearts desire, but the good choice of local pubs gives you a happy alternative. Beautifully decorated and comfortable, Castle rock will help you relax after a day on the beach or walking the coastal path.
