    “The people at Sykes were very ...”
    The people at Sykes were very helpful in arranging the booking for us. The only downside to the cottage was that the garden wasn't secure -.a bit of a problem with three dogs as we couldn't let them out alone. It would have been very easily remedied with one piece of fencing and a slope or steps between the two levels to allow them access to the whole garden. It may be worth passing this feedback on to the owners so they can make other dog owners aware. Otherwise all lovely, thank you.

The property

This well-presented, semi-detached former school house has been tastefully converted into a wonderful, spacious holiday home, situated in the village of Pembrey, close to Pembrey Sands and a short drive from the Gower Peninsula and popular sporting venues, such as Ffos Las.

Offering upside down accommodation, this delightful cottage is a perfect base for families and friends looking to explore this part of Wales.

Boasting far-reaching views of the village and Gower Peninsula, on the first floor of this superb holiday home is an open plan living area with A-frame beams, a well-equipped kitchen with centre island, a split-level dining area and a sitting area with balcony.

At the end of the day, there’s no better place then to sit on the balcony with a glass of wine whilst admiring the panoramic views.

On the ground floor are the bedrooms, which offer flexible sleeping arrangements, with one boasting French doors that open out onto the garden, and also on this floor is a shower room and utility area.

Outside there is a lovely tiered lawned garden, where you may wish to enjoy an alfresco meal, or even a morning coffee whilst you ponder your day ahead.

The popular village of Pembrey offers pubs and a shop, both of which are within a short walk, so why not stock up on essentials, or enjoy a drink before venturing back to your welcoming cottage.

The village is ideally placed for exploring the stunning Gower Peninsula, as well as the Pembrey Country Park, from where miles of sandy beaches and acres of forestry can be explored.

You’re just over half an hour away from diverse landscapes of the sandy beaches of Pembrokeshire and the Brecon Beacons in Mid Wales, plus the whole area is bordered with the Millennium Coastal Path, which opens up numerous outdoor activities for visitors to enjoy.

An excellent converted house, perfectly situated for enjoying the local sandy beaches and the Gower Peninsula.
