Please be aware that Aber Cottage is a historic Grade II listed building that was once three separate cottages. These were converted to one dwelling many years ago and as a consequence the building has a quaint and quirky feel to it. It does, however, mean that it is not really suitable for children under 8 years, and for those with limited mobility.
Please read the details below carefully before booking.
