Reviews

Super clean, quiet and a great base to discover the area. We enjoyed visiting Caerphilly castle, Cardiff bay and the Dr who experience, fishing trip from Swansea and a great day at Margam country park.Family from Nottingham - 27th August 2017
The owner was very friendly and welcoming. The property was adequate. It definitely was a property for dog lovers. The bedrooms were also very small but we managed. Very quiet though and no problem with the kennels.
Recommends: Newton beach. Sand dunes, Ogmore and Margam Park.Family from Plymouth - 5th August 2017
We ejoyd the stay at the Cottage, most enjoyable. The weather could have been better but it didn't stop us going out, visiting freands, the shopping and the lovely beaches. The cottage was lovely and clean, we loved it, also your son was most helpful, thanks for a lovely stay.Jean, Joe and the little dogs from Blackburn - 2nd July 2017
It was perfect and just what was needed! :) Very clean and Tony the owner was very friendly and helpful.
Recommendations: Woodz Pizza's, beaches, fun fair, Porthcawl town, Bridgend and great for visiting McArthur Glen Designer Outlet.Lisa from St. Athan - 15th March 2017
This holiday home had all the basics you would need. Main bedroom very small, fortunately as there were only two of us we were able to dress in the second bedroom. Shower was good and there was a washing machine if we had wanted it. Also the owner was very pleasant, there was milk and cakes for our arrival. We did leave our dog for a few hours at their kennels, so we could visit the Designer Centre at Bridgend. Overall we did enjoy our week because we like Porthcawl, in spite of the rain some days.Christine from Billericay Essex - 18th June 2016
