East Coast Accommodation

East Coast Accommodation

We are looking to spend three nights on the East Coast. Can anyone advise on the following?

1. Is Rose Cottage (twenty minutes south of Swansea) still an accommodation option? We stayed there in 1978 and loved it - would like to return.

2. is it appropriate to base oneself in Bicheno and see most of the best East Coast wonders from that base?

Many thanks

Bicheno is a good base for the east coast.

Rose Cottage seems to have vanished.

I agree with Luigi. We recently spent two days in Coles Bay and then two in St Helens. Although we had a great time I think if I were to do it again I would consider staying perhaps four days in Bicheno and making day trips from there. Bicheno was very pretty and had a real holiday atmosphere when we passed through. It also seemed to have better eating options and services than either Coles Bay and St Helens.
