The property

From the moment you set your eyes on this delightful Burry Port cottage, you will be delighted to have found such a gem for your holiday. Set high above the town in a quiet location, yet within walking distance of the shops, pubs and beautiful harbour and beach, this superb Burry Port holiday cottage oozes charm and sophistication. Step inside and discover the wonderful kitchen with its warming woodburner, range cooker and large dining table, which undoubtedly make this room the heart of this Burry Port holiday home. Down a few steps you will discover the snug with another cosy woodburner and double sofa bed; offering both flexible accommodation and also a place to escape to when you want to relax and unwind in the glow of the roaring fire. Across the hallway is the spacious sitting room, again with a woodburner, where all the family can watch TV or just sit and relax after great days out exploring the area or playing on the beach. The four bedrooms in this Burry Port cottage are all exquisitely decorated and furnished, each with their own individual style, with the master bedroom boasting an en-suite shower room and a fantastic view to the sea, while the bathroom has a claw-footed bath and is beautifully decorated to offer a touch of luxury to your holiday. Patio doors from the kitchen, and a door from the snug, lead onto a secluded and sheltered patio with stone steps leading up through a banked garden area which even has its own cave, a small hollowed out area in the rock, great for enjoying the garden views with a morning coffee. Raised, enclosed, decked patios offer the most wonderful views over the town and to the sea where alfresco dining and BBQs will be an absolute must. For the younger ones, the tiered lawned areas at the other side of the house provide plenty of space to play. The sandy beach, harbour and Millennium Cycle Path are about a 15 minute walk from this Burry Port cottage, or you can take a trip to Pembrey Beach or the horse racing at nearby Ffos Las. Shopping, cafes, restaurants, a cinema or theatre visit can all be found in Carmarthen, as can Merlin's Hill Centre and a steam railway ride. Whatever the time of year and whatever age you are, this beautiful Burry Port holiday cottage makes a perfect base for exploring this part of South Wales, and you will want to return time and again.

    • “A beautiful holiday home for a fantastic weekend!”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “We have just returned from a long weekend (Friday-Monday), what a beautiful house in a beautiful location. We were a group of 6 adults and 3 children under the age of 4, the house accommodated everyone's needs. The children loved the cave in the garden, everyone had a good laugh with the fancy dress box and the views were stunning. Even the 2 dogs had a great time and came home exhausted! All the rooms are well equipped and comfortable, there are a few utensils missing from the kitchen (we needed a couple more wine glasses and cooking utensils but we managed) Burry Port itself as a town is more residential, but the port is a lovely walk. Walking down into Burry Port from the house is a pleasant walk but the walk back is a bit of a climb so you need to be fit! Tenby was a 45 minute drive away and we had a great time on the beach, on our drive home we took a diversion to Rhossilli Bay and Caswell Bay which are beautiful. The only thing we struggled with was to find a nice pub/restaurant to eat in locally, we searched before we left and booked The Stradey Arms, Furnace, Llanelli for Sunday Carvery, it was a disappointment to say the least; roast potatoes done in a deep fat fryer, tinned peas, bought in Yorkshire puddings. £7.95 for a carvery so I guess you get what you pay for but it was very difficult to find a nice "eating pub"; the pubs seemed to be more "locals drinking pubs". This didn't spoil our holiday though, nobody wanted to come home and hopefully we will return!”

    • “Stayed in the house for the last week of August. The house is beautiful throughout and had everything our two families needed. The location of the house in Burry Port means that the view out to sea is stunning. Burry Port itself is more of a residential location but we liked this as did not want a typical commercial seaside location. A few pubs, shops and chip shops were all we required. We spent 4 of our days at Pembrey Country Park at the beautiful beach there. We also used the crazy golf and tobogganing at the park. It was well worth the £5 parking charge. Also spent a day in Tenby but all agreed we preferred the beach at Pembrey. Lovely holiday accommodation - the children and adults didn't want to come home!”

    • “Had a wonderful long weekend ( friday to tuesday) with my family at this gem of a cottage. Our party consisted of 9 adults and a grandson who is nearly three. All rooms are clean and well kept and there are nice "touches" both inside and outside the property. For instance, a box of fancy dress costumes and various games are in the lounge, a BBQ on the decking outside which all helped to make our stay fun. The garden was a wonderland for my grandson with a cave and a swing and slide. All in all, a great place for quality time together and a good base for exploring the surrounding areas. Big thanks to Vanessa for her consideration and the cakes!!”

    • “What a fabulous place to stay and we also enjoyed fabulous weather in March! The sitting room and kitchen were very spacious and well equipped for our large group of ten people. The deck was amazing for the view of the bay and we were thrilled to be able to use it. The garden equipment and furniture was excellent. We had four cars and there was plenty of room. The log burners were very welcome in the evenings but remember to take your own kindling and logs as the ones we bought from the garage were not very dry. The bedrooms and bathrooms were excellent and we all slept really well. Vanessa, the owner was very kind and send me all sorts of recommends and information. There were Welch Cakes, biscuits and milk in the fridge when we arrived. We walked for 15 minutes to reach the beautiful shore line and walked for over two hours along the easy access path (great for bikes, prams, little ones, wheelchairs etc). Did not get in our car from when we arrived to when we left. Town has a few places for eating some very nice pub grub type cuisine. Very relaxing and enjoyable. Do not hesitate to book, it felt like a home that someone had just handed over for the weekend, rather than a holiday lt.”

    • “What a wondrous home! Lovely warm feeling from the moment you enter plenty of outdoor space and the rear garden complete with cave and amazing decking area perfect for barbecues or that night cap. I cannot begin to describe the value for money we got from this holiday and the owners were lovely but perfectly distant. Already planning our return next year and the extended family want to come too!”

    • “Fabulous house!”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “We have just returned home from a three night stay at this great house. We were a party of eight, plus one dog. We found the property to be everything we could have asked for. Lots of space, comfy beds, nice and warm with the heating on. Kitchen well equipped, could have done with some more wine glasses! It is situated high up above Burry Port giving a spectacular sea view. Easy walking down to the harbour and beach, hard work coming back uphill, but we're all fit so not a problem. I have to say though, it is more than 15 minutes walk to the beach. We walked at speed and it took almost 25 minutes. The town is rather run down and no actual restaurants but if you like pub food or take away then you'll be ok. Great time enjoyed by all. Thanks The full postal address for this property is as follows: [--]”

The local shops were also well stocked and friendly, with a café happy for the dog to to join us.”
