“escape the city, breathe, and relax... (and drink wine)”
Reviewed January 2, 2014 for a stay in October 2013

To be honest, the Welsh coast out-of-season didn't sound particularly attractive when my better half first presented the idea to me. I couldn't have been more wrong. In fact, I'd go as far to say as Autumn/Winter is the ideal time to go: the clouds and rain rolling in off the Irish Sea, the big horizon, that sense of getting away from everything for a week or so. If, like us, you work in a big city, then you'll really appreciate the calm here.

The house itself is well-kitted out, although the hob flummoxed us for a bit. Oh, and if you're going with a group, try to nab the top room; it really is something else.

One small gripe: we like our wines, and there ain't much in Borth. The local Londis is incredibly pricey, too (London prices), so make sure you stock up in nearby Aberystwyth.

“House, terrace, beach, sunset - splendid”
Reviewed December 13, 2013 for a stay in December 2013

Windsor House is perfect for a holiday. Spacious, all amenities (and more), comfortable and relaxed. The terrace at the back leads straight to the beach. You can sit there and watch the world walk by and the waves roll in. We didn't see the dolphins but the friendly neighbours did. A cafe is right across the street and the pub a few doors down. Aberyswyth is only a few minutes drive away (Ultracomida highly recommended) and see red kites at Strata Florida Abbey a few miles further on. Or just walk for miles up the beach. Brilliant all of it.

“It just gets better”
Reviewed November 4, 2013 for a stay in October 2013

I have stayed at Windsor house several times now, and I just can't tell you how much I thoroughly enjoy my time there. This was the first time that I stayed for a whole week, and even though the weather wasn't exactly kind, the time still flew.

It's a complete escape and the setting is second to none. A very comfortable base for walks along the beach and pints of real ale in the local pub. The house is toasty and welcoming after a blustery day outdoors.

We visited the National Library at Aberystwyth and were really impressed by the ancient manuscripts that they had on display. The lady on reception was very accommodating friendly.

Other places to visit is the great Spanish deli near the pier at Aber (sorry, can't remember it's name) - but such good cheeses and meats, yum! Also, the Friendship Inn at Borth is a great traditional pub that serves real ale and is incredibly quirky.

We have booked again for May and, if it keeps up these high standards, Windsor House will continue to be a firm favourite for holidays with friends and family.

“Very enjoyable”
Reviewed October 10, 2013 for a stay in September 2013

The location of the property was ideal, straight out onto the beach from the decking. The accommodation was very comfortable and anything that you could possibly require for your stay was at the property. Have already recommeded to friends and colleagues. Will definitely book again.

“Superb location, homely, comfortable - everything you need!”
Reviewed September 29, 2013 for a stay in April 2013

This was our second stay at this fantastic house. Such a treat to be able to walk out straight from the kitchen to the beach first thing in the morning. The kids couldn't believe their eyes when they arrived - a dream come true! The house is incredibly well equipped and comfortable with plenty of space for everybody. And to top it all you can relax on the back terrace in the evening and enjoy the most spectacular sunsets over the Irish sea - heaven!

“Amazing house, right on the beach!”
Reviewed September 1, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

After several years staying in the Borth area, we are so happy to have found the ultimate place to stay in Borth! House is fantastic, spacious, very well equipped, and in the perfect location right on the actual beach. Kids (age 13, 12, and 9) loved the fact that they could swim while we watched them from the terrace, and the fact there are two living rooms and plenty of places to escape from the adults! Clean, good bathrooms, great location with great waves and rocks in Borth, and gorgeous soft sand up the road in Ynyslas - what more could you want? Attic room is particularly amazing, with beautiful views of the sea ... what a way to wake up. Can't wait to go back next year ... book early, this place won't be free for long!
