What a great 3 night break in this comfortable cottage in Wales!
We had a lovely welcome from the owners of Ddol Cottage who live next door who told us about local amenities, restaurants and pubs that serve good food.
We were lucky enough to have fine weather which made our stay even more enjoyable. One of the reasons we booked the cottage was because of the three cute donkeys that live in the garden.
Lovely friendly donkeys
They came to the fence as soon as they heard the door open looking for their favourite snacks of ginger biscuits, apples and carrots. We loved watching them play, their favourite game being welly wanging! What a great life they have grazing and entertaining the holiday makers who stay in this cottage.
While we were there we visited Aberystwyth, Aberaeron and Newquay. I can recommend the Harbour Master in Aberaeron for a tasty lunch watching the boats come and go.Newquay is a great place to wander and enjoy the beach, fish and chips and an ice cream.

The National Trust property in Llanerchaeron was a short journey away and well worth a visit.We really enjoyed the 18th century house with a pretty walled garden and woodland walks.There was an interesting collection of steam engines so something for everyone.
