Cannot believe how lucky we are every time we stay at Whitewell. We have been able to sit on the patio every day for an hour or two and been able to visit our usual favourite places. This is certainly a magical place for us, and look forward to our visits every year.
Another great week at whitesands and the weather far better than predicted. On arrival it was strange that Blue our Staffie did not make his usual Search of the property. However , We have great memories of holidays at whitewell with him. Looking forward to spending Xmas at Whitewell 2015
It was not 5* but 7*stars Thank you!!!
Walk to Porth Clais over the cliffs and Stackpole head, further south were the highlights. The 6 mile round trip from Aberieddy to Porthgain ( for cream tea and lunch at the Shed,) was spectacular. If its body boarding you are into its Newgale and Whitesands beaches - all brilliant no matter the weather, Miranda age 45.
