  • "We booked this holiday for a week for our honeymoon, and couldn't have been happier with accommodation and everything that came with it."

    We were able to take our dog any where we went as every where local seemed to be dog friendly - even dolphin trips! It was lovely to have a property with a fully enclosed back garden for our dog and even an orchard to stroll around in. The entertainment room really made it for us! We were able to relax in the hot tub,play ping ping and shoot some pool. The hosts went above and beyond to make us feel welcome and was lovely to meet them both. Although it seems so quite and tranquil, there is a big shop within a 5 minute drive,so no need to worry about running out of anything. I would suggest visiting the local butchers , Mark Webb and sons, they are fantastic hosts and even better butchers, we couldnt have been happier with the produce they provided there. We will definitely be coming back as was this was the best staycation we've ever had, just wished we'd booked to stay longer! 5 stars all round, especially to the hosts. Kai, Lisa & Lola

  • "Areally nice bungalow in a very quiet position on a narrow track ,on Arrival we were impressed on the size of the accommodation there was plenty of space and three decent size bathrooms ."

    Although like previous people that stayed there was an issue wit very low water pressure ,but i do know there was work going on in nearby area to fix this.The games room and the hot tub were great ideal for all the family.We had really nice weather apart from one day but not forgetting it is September. Overall we had a nice stay here and the welcome pack we received was much appreciated,and i have to say the caretakers Mark and Julia were great anything however large all small was no problem to them so Thankyou to you both. Please note the issue with previous reviews regarding cleaning issues have now been addressed thanks to the owner,The bungalow was very clean.The only slight niggle really is the fact you are out in the middle of the countryside so you would have to travel by car to most places ,but don't be put off by this as there are many places not to far to visit.

  • "Lovely big bungalow with everything you could need."

    The on-suite shower room is great and so is the family bathroom. Nobody should ever need to queue for the loo with 4 toilets in the bungalow and a fifth in the games room. Hot tub and games room enough for the family especially if weather isn't up to much. Games a few books, CD's and DVD's in bungalow. Very clean but if you have the windows open be prepared for some of the local wildlife to fly in lol. Read a previous report about not having any phone reception at the bungalow or even in the area, ours never faulted so I suppose it depends on your service provider ours was BT. Also read about water pressure which was an area problem which the waterboard fixed whilst we stayed there. The owner Pam and the caretakers Julie and Mark where just a phone call away to sort out the one problem we did have with the water, which was turned of by the waterboard whilst they fixed the problems, but it was off a lot longer than expected and within 10 mins of phoning Julie they were at the Bungalow with drinking water for us and Pam phoned the waterboard who came up and they brought us drinking water and said it should be back on with in 90 mins and it was All in all a lovely stay

  • "Good layout of the house and bathrooms appear to be luxurious but there is a serious lack of water pressure meaning that even cleaning teeth was a challenge let alone taking a shower."

    Cleanliness was not good enough, the bathroom sinks and toilets were clean as were the kitchen sides but fridge and inside cupboards were dirty, floors had obviously only had a quick whizz round clean, there was thick dust and dead insects in many areas. Some sort of grim stains all over the radiator in the living room, mold stains on some of the bedding. Drainage is also an issue in the property rendering the shower in the main bathroom unusable and the sink in the ensuite. The shower in the end shower room went from freezing to scalding constantly. The games room is great and was the saving grace of this property. The property is reached by a tiny one track road so be warned if you have a wide car. Also there is no mobile coverage - this is an issue all around New Quay area, while we quite enjoyed this we did have to drive to Aberaeron to make a call one day! The little basket of breakfast things was a nice touch. This could be an amazing place but has a feel of neglect about it, such a shame.

  • "This cottage is beautiful inside and so quiet and peaceful."

    The extra touches of a welcome package, board games, books and DVDs was lovely. The games room provided hours of entertainment and the hot tub extremely relaxing. Even though the cottage is nearly three miles away from the nearest village, the butchers shop there stocks lots of other items as well as the most amazing meat. The sausages and bacon were the best we have ever tasted. The large back garden and orchard are perfect for dogs, our little cockerpoo loved every second. We really couldn't this cottage enough.

  • "The property was very nice, probably a bit remote as nearest shops were 4miles away."

    There are issues with the water pressure which causes problems with the toilet flushing. The owner was helpful and did try to sort this, but it only improved a little. Knob on cooler was not working and the cleaning could have been better, lots of dust under bed and behind doors. Despite this we enjoyed our stay, the quiet and relaxation was lovely as was the hot tub. You definitely need your own transport.

    It has everything you need if you want to relax and get away from the noise of the city this is the place to come !! We couldn't wait to get here especially after the lockdown, it was definitely worth the wait !!! So many places to see, we did so much more this holiday with our girls the beaches are out of this world ! fingers crossed we're going to get back there next year. I would recommend this holiday to anyone the owners are so lovely and the welcome pack on arrival is a lovely thought :) no complaints from us what so ever !!

    To sit outside with a cup of tea listening to nature and no cars was an absolute joy. The kids loved the games room and were in the hot tub every night, after thrashing us at darts and pool. The bungalow is well equipped and beautifully furnished. We loved our week there . Thank you

    ! Comfy beds, lots of loos and showers. Games room in the garden a real bonus especially if the weather isn’t great. Lovely small beaches within 5-10 miles away. Washing machine but no tumble dryer which would have been useful. Would have like a BBQ in the garden and the grass needed Cutting. Would definitely recommend for a quiet family holiday in mid Wales

  • "A lovely quiet and comfortable holiday home if you like your peace and quiet."

    Not a great deal to do locally but that suited us fine. Nearest supermarket about 20 minute drive away so stuck up before you arrive or arrange an online grocery as an alternative. Asda and Tesco deliver here but not Sainsbury's where we usually shop typically. Bungalow was lovely and clean on arrival and was fantastically equipped with almost everything you could need. All basics for tea and coffee and a lovely fresh loaf of bread left in lovely welcome pack. Games room is fab albeit a little cold in the evenings but was told on enquiry that the owners are looking at sorting out some kind of heating for it so would be very welcomed by anyone staying I'm sure. Overall a lovely holiday home. Quiet, well equipped and comfortable. Will very gladly stay again without a second thought

  • "Really enjoyed our stay at Southview, the cottage is in a rural location and it’s so quiet and peaceful."

    The games room was welcomed on the wetter days and evenings. The property is very spacious yet has a comfy feel about it. Very well equipped throughout. We did leave some points that required attention in the guest book and hope the owners are active when reading this book as other guests had noted similar points. The location of this property, whilst quiet is somewhat isolated so be prepared to travel anywhere from 30-60mins daily if you plan on doing activities.

    The home was so light,spacious and comfy, the loudest noise was the singing of birds in the trees. The hot tub was a good size and I have never stayed in a property with so many extras as Southview, so I really think that it was such good value for money. The owners of this property should be really proud to own such a nice lovely place for others to rent out and enjoy.

  • "The bungalow was roomy with plenty of space for 6 people."

    Just a few niggles 1 the heating controls need to be explained to visitors, the thermostat in the hall does nothing. there is a control in the lounge behind behind the television which has to turned on manually in the morning and off again at night, had to phone the owner to find this out. 2 there was rubbish and bottles left from the previous visitors, I contacted the council (again no info left) to find when the rubbich was collected which is a Thursday so put everything out. The bottles were taken to the bottle bank by the owner when asked to do so. 3 lastly my husband unblocked both the shower wastes of hair etc as they were overflowing, a battery need putting in the kitchen clock and more attention needs paying to the cleaning of the property, sweeping under furniture in the lounge, dead flies on the window ledges. You may feel we are being picky but we have used your company on numerous occasions over the years and this is the first time we have been disappointed.

    We are sorry for Mrs Bowyer's disappointing stay. We have had problems with customers in the past not sorting or bagging their refuse properly and in consequence our maintenance man has to sort and bag on the Saturday changeover ready for the following Thursday council collection. There was a small amount of glass in the outside bin which is emptied to the recycling centre when half full. There is one sofa in the lounge which the cleaner did not pull out. Fly spray was used on leaving the property as a precaution, hence the dead flies. The shower drains are quite efficient at collecting debris and so are cleaned at each changeover. We understood that Mrs Bowyer extended her stay by nine days and an offer of extra maintenance was made but not taken up so we can only apologise on this occasion. Information on appliances etc are all in the folder in the welcome basket. We have now spoken to our cleaner and maintenance man to ensure high standards do prevail. We have also produced a quick guide for future customers regarding the wifi thermostat and refuse collection. Again, we are sorry for Mrs Bowyer's disappointing stay and hope to welcome her back in the future. Southview Cottage owners. Property Owner

    Slightly off road which was a bit tricky due to the weather and if another car was coming the other way but the secluded location made for a very peaceful and relaxing stay only the neighbours to chat too who we’re also lovely and very informative. Would definitely recommend to all!
