"Seathrift is our favourite apartment to stay at in the Gwel Marten complex. The view is amazing but also has the advantage of side windows which make the apartment feel bigger and much brighter. Everything you need is in the apartment including a treasure trove of beach items in the storage cupboard (in which we have left items on previous visits!). We have already booked for next year as we love it so much. Would highly recommend." Katharine Dentith
