Woodburner /Fire instructions

The pellets for the burner are stored in the small box next to the burner. To refill, simply open the hatch at the top. There is a spare bag in the garden storage box by the front parking area. If you hear beeping noise, the burner needs to be refilled with pellets and ideally turned off and on again. There is an instruction manual for the burner in the kitchen cupboard.

We spent a surperb week here in early July. The location is excellent to explore Cemaes Head and Nature Reserve. A gentle walk to Poppit Sands beach and bay, albeit uphill most of the way on return. The facilities were ample. Spacious car parking. Thank you Cari and Duncan for a wonderful stay.

We had a fantastic stay....

We had a fantastic stay and were blown away by the house, the decor and the amenities. Rocket Cottage is like something out of the pages of one of those aspirational glossy magazines you'd find in a high end design shop. My wife spent literally 20 minutes photographing the fixtures, fittings and jaw dropping view, whilst I busied myself with the amazing welcome pack (loved the rum and ginger). Add the fact that the weather was kind to us and Poppit Sands is a dog walker's heaven, we'll definitely be back this summer if we can.

Rocket House is HEAVEN ON EARTH! I am lucky to have the opportunity to travel across Wales staying in amazing coastal abodes but Rocket House has to be my ALL time favourite of 2019! The coastal drive up into the Welsh hills overlooking Poppit Sands is the perfect adventure. Arriving at Rocket House my heart skipped a beat because of the anticipation of the sea views, hoping it would blow my mind! It took me a good half hour to take it all in. The cottage is everything and more, perfect for a romantic getaway, a quiet retreat for one or an escapism for good friends to soak up the views and take in the peace and quiet away from the maddening crowds. The bed is HUGE and super comfy with a beautiful sea view from the bedroom window. The kitchen has all the mod cons you ever need and the lounge is suitably comfortable with more stunning sea views. The Welsh Hamper was delicious and such a wonderful addition to the weekend. I was lucky with the weather so most of my time was spent lost in the coastal scene reclined in one of the deckchairs. In the evening I spent a good couple of hours sat in the garden studio reading my book. I could have stayed a month happily mooching about Poppit Sands and Cardigan. I'm in love with Rocket House and in the process of re-booking a mid week retreat!
