It was the perfect place to share with old friends, beautifully prepared accommodation and the welcome hamper had everything we needed. We were very lucky with the weather and enjoyed good walks along the coastal path. It is a part of the country unfamiliar to us so the landscape and places of interest nearby were a wonderful surprise. We would certainly recommend staying in the lighthouse to our friends

Beautiful weather - almost as good as ours this week! Rhosilli lovely - worth a trip for the views. Brecon/beacons disappointing very bare and town not quite as expected! Lighthouse and cottage gorgeous. Warm and cosy and well kept. Would recommend to friends for sure. Bonza!

Lovely stay. Cottage has wonderfully comfy beds. Beautifully clean - great house keeper (can I take you home?). Places to visit - we were only here for a short stay, Ogmore beach is magnificent and for really quality shopping and individuality, Cowbridge wins hands down and The Mumbles definitely worth a visit. Fishmonger there is very, very good.

Enjoyed our stay, lovely comfortable, warm and well appointed cottage. Recommend Horseshoes pub down the road in Marcross, excellent food.
Met Welsh friends and had a lovely meal in Iltud's 216 in LLantwit Major. Quirky but great restaurant.
There was a wedding in the lighthouse during our stay! (A few books to read would be nice)

Amazingly warm and cosy inside given the gale and hail outside! Which we braved earlier on a muddy circular walk, out of the cottage along the coast, inland through Marcross and back via the Horseshoe pub - around 2.5 hours at a slow pace. Have retraced my Father's Welsh roots in Aberdove and my childhood holiday in Dinas Powis. Hope to return again soon.

This was our 2nd stay and we had two very stormy nights which made our stay even cosier. We also went to Cowbridge, which we can highly recommend. What a great way to start a new year. ZB, Swansea.

Wow! What a magical place, staying at a lighthouse - tick off the bucket list, staying at Nash Point - No.1 on that list. Thoroughly enjoyed the cliff walks, beach, farms & woods. Lunch at Plough - just brilliant. D&K OB, Australia.

Had a wonderful stay at Ariel. Everything we needed for a weekend break. Lovely welcome hamper and flowers waiting to greet us. Weather was terrible, lots of rain, high winds, thunder and lightening but we didn't care we enjoyed our time in the cottage relaxing. Will definitely be back again. Thank you to our housekeeper - you do an excellent job! CD, Newport.

Lovely family holiday for 3 generations. Beautiful location. All enjoyed the RHS Flower Show in Cardiff. Unlucky with the weather, thick fog and drizzle but wonderful time nonetheless. HJ, Weymouth
1 April 2013
We have enjoyed staying here. We have been very lucky with the weather. The stars at night and the lighthouse tour was amazing. The beaches and surrounding area are amazing for exploration and fossil hunting. The cottages are lovely and cosy, hamper was a nice touch and we are very sad as we do not want to go home. This is our first lighthouse holiday but it will not be our last! AM, High Wycombe.
