Offering a unique and contemporary stay and made from local eco materials, this property is a great place to stay for friends and families looking to make the most of this wonderful beachside location. On the ground floor there is a communal large open plan living area with seating, dining and full kitchen. This space spreads to outdoors to make the most of the location and there is a central firepit and BBQ for al fresco dining. A laundry area is great for drying clothes and towels after a day at the beach, whilst the wifi, music and games offers wonderful entertainment. There is a secure space for storing, washing down and drying for keen kayakers. There are showers for post swimming in the sea which is just 200 metres away. And somewhere to clean off those sandy or muddy boots from the many walking routes in the area.

Up on the first floor you can find the bedroom area, each complete with 2 sets of bunk beds, large porthole windows and access to 2 shared shower rooms. To confirm this listing is for one bedroom to sleep up to 4 guests with shared living areas. 

Whilst here you can enjoy many water sports including kayaking, dinghy sailing, windsurfing and diving, or alternatively keep your feet dry and partake in climbing, cycling or hike along the Wales Coast Path. Design your own itinerary according to your wishes with the help of the owners. A bonus is the wildlife. Nestled in a quiet part of the Welsh Coastal Path this is in abundance with seals, dolphin, rare butterflies and many unusual birds.

Alternatively you may just wish to simply make the most of this peaceful setting.
