What wonderful rental experience from the outset, dealing with Harj and Phil and staying at this fabulous cottage
Four bedroom cottage which comfortably slept 7 complete with ample private car parking space
Cottage is beautifully appointed and the sunset picturesque
Not to be missed

“Fantastic Accommodation”

We went for a long weekend (Friday to Monday) and were blessed with good weather particularly on Sunday.

If you like peace and quiet and a nice view, it is perfect for you. The cottage was very comfortable with all the mod cons that you want. The beds were comfy, lovely duvets and pillows with fabulous views of the sea out of the windows. I'm sure during the lighter evenings, the sunsets would be amazing.

There is a train line between the property and the sea, but the trains are only every other hour and can work to your advantage.We used the train and went to Barmouth on the Saturday, which was brilliant as we could take the dog on the train too. No hassle of having to drive all around the estuary and parking etc. Had there have been trains on the Sunday, we would have gone to Aberdovey by train too.

We had a problem with the heating and on the Saturday morning contacted the owners, within two hours it was up and running again.

As we live close to that area of Wales, if the cottage or any of the others were available for a weekend, we'd go and stay there again.

We wanted somewhere to relax and chill out that is what we got! Spent hours just soaking up the scenery, sights and sounds of various birds and even porpoises. A wonderful haven to come back to and recommend a visit to Aberdovey.
However we couldn't use the beach path as it was deemed unsafe by our adventurous friend! and we enjoyed waving at the occasional train and getting hoots from the drivers. Do not let either put you off this little piece of heaven.

“perfect place to chill out and recharge the batteries”

Rola cottage is the perfect place to unwind and chill out for a few days. This is not a glib cliche, it's true!
We've just returned from a weekend to fantastic Rola cottage where the most challenging process was whether to eat Indian or Chinese on the first evening (Indian won!) - kindly brought in the back of an Asda home delivery van.
The teenagers with their whizzy Nintendos, laptops and kindles all stopped to spend some time talking to their old mum and dad. Well, for a while anyway..
Amazing what good old fashioned fresh air does for the spirit.
The dogs loved it.
We loved it more.
Bring on summer and another trip to Rola,

“Great cottage in a great setting”

Stayed in the smaller cottage Yr Olaf for the weekend. Setting with the sea view right in front of you is fantastic. Didn't go over the stiles to the beach so cannot comment on the access however with other beaches so close this wasn't that important to us. We expected a blustery weekend but didn't expect the winds to be so strong and coupled with the rain at times made the walking really exilarating. We had a great time on the long beach at Fairbourne walking the dog in what felt like hurricane winds we couldn't stop ourselves laughing at least until we had to turn around again and face the winds walking back up the beach. It was lovely to come back to the cottage to get warm and sit out the worst of the storm. The cottage was really nice and comfortable and although we didn't use the decking we can imagine that in better weather it would be magical to sit out there facing the sea looking out for dolphins. Not much lighting outside (which is a positive) so take a torch if walking a dog. Would be great to come back again to see the cottage in nicer weather and can recomend the cottage we stayed in and the area to others.

Whilst the weather was not the kindest, Rola cottage was lovely, spacious, clean and cosy. Plenty of room for the 5 of us. Newly updated main bathroom and downstairs shower room. Positioned adjacent to the sea nothing gets in the way of the view, there is sizeable garden space. On a night there is minimal outside lighting so taking torches is a must.
