    We enjoyed the peacefulness and dark skies. Ability to walk straight from the door to the coastal footpath. Everything provided for and lovely and warm with the log burner. We really enjoyed our holiday with our collie Jess. Madeleine and Bernard.

  • "So glad I didn’t allow the mixed reviews to put me off."

    I really enjoyed the quaint cozy characterful cottage. Great location perched on top of a hill. It potentially could be a 5* stay. It was however in need of a deep clean, I dropped something behind the bedside table & toilet both of which were really dusty with cobwebs. The sofa smelt of wet dog. There was a cracked bowl & mug. The edging of the kitchen work surface was loose. The lock was very stiff and I was locked in on several occasions. The garden is perfect for viewing sunset but was in need of a good tidy. Vera was attentive and accommodating and I wouldn’t put the above off me rebooking or recommending the cottage.

  • "Lovely, quaint remote cottage."

    A little difficult to find, especially as we arrived in the dark. We did try all 3 phone numbers provided but couldn’t get an answer from any of them. We did find our way eventually, and the track leading up to the property was extremely challenging! Just glad the snow had gone, and we didn’t come in our other car, as we wouldn’t have made it up the track. But, once we got to the property - what a warm welcome! The fire was lit, perfect for a cold December evening. The property is really quirky, but a little tired in places. And could have done with a more thorough clean throughout. The shower isn’t great, and the beds are very small. But, the location, and everything else is perfect. All in all, a lovely short break. Perfect for some quiet and nice long walks

    Dear Guest.....Thank you for your great comments in the guest book. Apologies no one picked up the phone  when you were unable to find the cottage ? Yes, a long period of severe stormy weather has resulted in the track to the cottage being more difficult to negotiate we will most certainly attempt to improve access as soon as. Following a recent agency visit we believed cleaning to be satisfactory however we will check once more.  Really pleased you loved the cottage and look forward to you visiting again. Property Owner

  • "This cottage was dirty."

    I cleaned all plates etc before Using them the furnishings were tired and the spare bed looked thrown together with broken slats. Cobwebs everywhere and general dirt .towels that were given smelt musky.i feel as covid is so prominent now that the cleanliness should have been much better.its a shame that this cottage was as bad as mentioned as it could be a little gem if it had refurb.skyes had emailed me prior to my stay as I had been concerned as feedback left had said it was unclean but skyes promised that it would be clean on my arrival. But no sadly not up to basic standards

    I am sorry you found standards of cleanliness unacceptable and have tried to contact you to identify specific areas of concern without success. The cleaner and local laundry would appreciate you contacting us if at all possible as we are keen to improve standards. We are committed to giving our guests a truly enjoyable holiday without any issues. Property Owner

  • "The cottage was quaint and in a quiet secluded location."

    Access would be difficult without a 4x4 vehicle particularly in wet weather. The property was an ideal size for 2 people plus dogs but the proprty was tired and furnishings were sparse as regards comfort in the living room. The tendency to use old distressed cupboards was overdone and the bedroom lacked storage space. We kept our clothes in a suitcase and bag as it was difficult to open the big heavy drawers. There was no wardrobe just exposed rails. The small double bed was too small for 2 adults to share in comfort. The shower water pressure was poor and would be unpleasant in cold weather. There was no dustbin outside unlike the property next door and guests were expected to take bin bags in their vehicles to public bins quite a distance away with the risk of the bags bursting. These faults can easily be rectified cheaply and the property reach its potential.

    Thank you for your feedback. Unfortunately neither the local council or refuse collection services are prepared to collect waste from the cottage or the Mill next door, hence guests are requested to take their rubbish to the nearest drop off point. The cottage is advertised with 2 single beds and a 'small double on request', there is insufficient room for a wardrobe and the large pine drawers are to help alleviate storage problems. Thank you for the lovely message you left in the guest book. Property Owner

  • "One of our most enjoyable stays in a holiday cottage."

    Fabulous setting for remoteness and watching sunsets, also practically on the Wales Coast Path for walks to Red Wharf Bay in one direction and Penmon Point in the other. Old cottage with very good heating and hot water, large fridge/freezer and surprisingly good internet connection. It didn't bother us but we can see why some reviewers have commented on cleanliness. Much of the furniture is antique/vintage and many of the cupboards/drawers/shelves, etc in the property are either too cluttered with old stuff or not really clean enough for eg clothes, etc. To us it was rustic and charming and what you might expect in a remote location. The drive is fine for all except the most low-slung of cars. Beware the very sharp slab on the LHS on the bend just after the junction where you turn sharp left - it could slash a tyre. Keep in the ruts, ie in the centre of the track and you will be fine. We will be returning here.

  • "Lovely cottage ."

    ..was slightly unsure from the pictures wether it would be too small, but was a pleasant surprise. For a couple it's perfect , more room than expected and the setting is idyllic. It's a quaint, rustic and warming property that's lovely to come back to. Bonus is that there is a fantastic pebbled cove housing White Beach just a 15min walk through the fields and deserted country roads on its doorstep. Highly recommend.....it's a wonderful get away from it all place. Rustic and charming and would definitely stay again . P.s.........don't worry about the track to get up to it, you don't need a four wheel drive, no cars in or out had any problems. It just adds to the charm

    Cottage was very dusty and needed a deep clean. Cottage smelt stale and musty and could not clear the smell.

  • "The cottage was quirky and delightful, the downside was it was not clean, the shower room was disgusting, cobwebs were plentiful, dust everywhere, mould on wall, smelt of damp, material stuff up against a door covered in cobwebs and dirty, metal strips on sides of oven kept falling off."

    The track to the cottage really should be pointed out that you defo need a very substantial vehicle. The outside was scruffy, weeds, garden seats falling apart. We were asked to leave the cottage clean, it certainly wasn't presented to us as clean. This is such a shame as the potential for the cottage to be stunning has not been exploited.

    It’s a little vintage cottage in an ideal location. We loved our stay! We had fresh flowers in vases on our arrival and the views were spectacular. The added bonus were the sheep, lambs and cows all close by and it was a really wonderful experience. We will definitely be returning.

  • "Three Gates is a lovely peaceful cottage with beautiful views and close to the coast."

    However the description was less than accurate. Access is indeed via a farm track but a 4x4 vehicle is essential to navigate the track to the cottage. Anyone in a standard family car may well struggle to reach the cottage and this should be made clear in the description. The cottage had all the facilities you could need for a holiday but some were in need of replacement. The shower was difficult to use and the "eclectic mix of furnishings" prevented adequate cleaning. The property was very dusty and some furnishings very worn and dirty. The photos on the website show bright and airy accomodation but the cottage is quite dark inside as would be expected of a cottage of this age. It would benefit from a declutter and an extra small sofa since the seating in the living room did not really provide for a comfortable evening of relaxation. We did enjoy our time in this beautiful part of Wales.

    Because of the isolated location would benefit from a house name sign at the first left turning in the woodland track, would be difficult to find in the dark if you hadn’t been there before. Otherwise couldn’t fault it, the perfect cottage hideaway.

  • "We had to leave two days early as it was so uncomfortable."

    The beds were very uncomfortable and one had the slats sticking out. The settee was very poor also as were the 2 wooden chairs,we could not get comfortable the whole time we were there. It wasn’t very clean especially the shower. We left early Wednesday as we were aching everywhere. It was a beautiful location but was spoiled for us,it could still be rustic as rustic doesn’t have to mean no comfort. It needs new beds and new settee and chairs in living room.

    I inevitably find it hard to work out 3 gates feedback ! I love it, some guests love it, some not and unfortunately you fell into the latter category.

    Lounge area could do with another comfy chair as the additional seating were two hardbacked chairs. The walk to White Cove Beach from Three Gates is longer than stated, would take a good 20 minutes plus. A shame that they were an abundance of sheep which was unfortunate for Lola our Cocker Spaniel, as she had to be on the lead. Enjoyable holiday.

    The cottage on the other hand was in need of a full clean. .

Loved the concept and history but just needed it to be cleaner to suit my expectations.

    We were however slightly disappointed with the overall cleanliness of the property. We also felt the cottage wasn't as well equipped as we had come to expect, there was only one wine glass and no pint glasses. There was no Vegetable peeler, serving spoons or Potato masher but was full of tapa's bowls! It was frustrating as the equipment that was in the property was of a high standard and good quality.

    I understand the cottage is dog friendly but the cleaners could have ensured all the dog hair from the last stay was cleaned up for us. It wasn't very pleasant. The cottage itself was lovely but this put a dampener on it.

    The only thing I would say is all the extractor fans needed a good clean and if the seating area/grassed area to the left of the cottage had been mown and tidied it would have been even better for if we had had the weather to sit out, lots of outside seating was great. Oh also I think the stairs would benefit from carpet but that's just my personal opinion. I certainly don't have any complaints and would recommend without hesitation. A great little find.
