We were a group of several families with children ranging from 2 years to 16 years. With a living room upstairs and downstairs there was space for everyone. The house was really well equipped with good quality furniture and kitchen equipment.
Great scenery around the house, and a good base to visit other towns etc.

A very well appointed house. Spacious and very well fitted out. There are lovely views from the house and many things to do in the area. We took 4 young children with us, including one baby. They were very well catered for with a proper cot and high hair and plenty of plastic cups and plates! We had some lovely walks, precipice walk is only a 10min drive away and offers beautiful views. Fairbourne beach was great, the sea was actually warm! The shallow beach means it was great for kids.
