Owners were very welcoming ,nothing was too much trouble

Places to eat ,the Atlantic hotel for dinner, the Waterfront for breakfast.
Mark and Sarah from Cyprus - 10th July 2014
Accommodation exceeded our expectations! It felt luxurious and really clean, modern fittings but with cosy cottage type furnishings for a homely feel. The grounds are beautiful with extensive garden area.

Only a few minutes walk to the beach through the dunes. Coastal path fantastic to walk all along the coast. Rest Bay is a great beach to drive or walk to. Porthcawl shops, harbour and get a Sidoli's ice cream. Bryngarw Park great for woodland walks. Margam Park great for walking, gardens, picnic, farm animals
Couple from Newport - 3rd July 2014
“So comfortable I could easily live there!”


Home from home sums it up. Everything was perfect except the weather but it didn't stop us getting out and about but the place was so comfortable would have been happy just to sit and relax.


Homemade marmalade and plums from the garden awaited us. A very special place.
