Comments from the Visitors' Book

Lovely décor, lots of little extras we didn’t expect (coffee station). Great location in Aberdovey, a pleasure to stay, thank you.

Beautiful house in a fantastic location! We were so pleased to call Rock Pool Cottage our home for the week. Every need was catered for and we had a wonderful holiday – thank you x

Someone up there must be blessing this cottage. It’s been wonderful with weather to match (clear and hot) many thanks.

Thanks, a great little cottage, we loved being so close to everything, love to come back soon.

Lovely break away in a fabulous cottage which really is a home from home! More than enough utensils! And so comfortable (we really didn’t want to leave!) We’d love to return, thank you xx

Perfect location – so easy to fall out of bed and walk the beach and sand dunes – everything very handy – so much to enjoy – totally relax – excellent cottage layout and fittings – all superb!

What a fabulous stay we had at Rock Pool Cottage!! Amazing location and so much to do right on our doorstep! Many many thanks.

Beautiful Cottage, beautiful weather! We love it here, thank you so much!

After a stay at Rock Pool Cottage, I would give it 5/5 as the location is perfect. Centred in the middle of the shopping and pubs, the beach is within a stone’s throw and the crabbing is out of this world. You can enjoy a beautiful day at the beach within a minutes’ walk from the cottage.

Lovely place, we have fallen in love with this amazing cottage, thank you!
