Reviews

A lovely property in a beautiful location. Owners were lovely and very helpful. Mr Mark Bishop - 16th July 2018
Very comfortable, in a good location despite the wet, cold and bleak weather. Great central location to visit castles, countryside and villages. The Baked Sea Bass at the Cornish Arms, Burry Port was the best fish dinner I have ever eaten. Don't miss it. I think that the service from the 'Beast of Wales' is fantastic.John from Australia - 20th May 2017
By far the best property for comfort and equipment we have rented in 7 years of coming to Wales.
A good base to use to go anywhere, day trip to Brecons 'Waterfall country' if you like walking and spectacular views. Llanelli, Carmarthen for shopping. Gower peninsula for beaches, walking. But fantastic beach on doorstep, 10min walk if you want a beach holiday with no driving!!Portia from Devon - 4th August 2015
Wonderful house, very peaceful, just what the doctor ordered! A well deserved rest, just a shame we couldn't stay forever!
We would definitely love to come again.
Griffiths, Brecon - 11th October 2014
Best equipped self-catering accommodation either of us have experienced. Very comfortable and some very thoughtful touches. A good base from which to explore the Gower. Would recommend Sospan restaurant in Llanelli.
C and K, Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire - 11th September 2014
We have had a brilliant time despite the occasional burst of Welsh rain! The cottage is very well equipped and comfortable. One of the best we have stayed in! We loved Burry Port and especially Pembrey Park and The Cornish Arms. We are now off to The Lighthouse Cafe for breakfast. 
Izzard Family, Swindon - 11th August 2014
