  • "Terrific holiday property particularly if you have a small child."

    Plenty of toys and a hot tub with good access to the beach. Lots of space as well.

  • "Wonderful holiday, loved the wood fire and dishwasher."

    Very comfortable beds. Great access to the beach. Very high standard of cleanliness and lots of room in the house. Good parking. Would definitely go again.

    Thankyou for your lovely feedback. Look forward to welcoming you another time! Property Owner

    Only negative was that we couldn’t find any dishwasher tab's. Lovely spacious rooms and fantastic hot tub. Just the ticket!

  • "We enjoyed our stay at Seagulls."

    The house is in a lovely village location backing onto sand dunes. It is spacious and well equipped. The piano and hot tub were an added bonus. Although there is room on the drive for 3 cars, on street parking was an issue. The neighbour opposite seems to have many cars and parks on both sides of the road. Access and parking is therefore difficult. When we first arrived there were cars blocking the entrance to the drive. All in all we would recommend Seagulls and will consider another holiday there.

  • "We had a fabulous stay at Seagulls."

    The owner has thought of everything to give a home from home stay. Very clean and comfortable property, in a great location. The beds were very comfortable and the area around was very quiet, just a stones throw from the beach. We had a lovely meal at the Jolly Sailor which is a 5 minute walk away. We would highly recommend a stay at Seagulls

  • "We all enjoyed our stay at Seagulls, a very welcoming, comfortable and clean cottage with the added bonus of the piano to enjoy."

    Feedback/Suggestions: *New frying pans as current ones are very worn and made omelettes resemble scrambled egg as non stick worn. *Plastic tableware for young children. *Kitchen roll holder would have been handy. *Spare bedding just in case of accidents (sick children as an example). Positives: *Ample fridge space was a bonus especially as we were a big group (freezer needs a defrost). *Plenty of tableware available which was great and plenty of bowls/pans/dishes to allow cooking and baking. *Great selection of toys for little ones to play with. *Great supply of cleaning products/kitchen supplies (foil, sandwich bags etc.) that kept us going until we bought our own. Thanks for a great stay.

    Thank you for your very helpful feedback - we will invest in some new pans etc! There is actually spare bedding in the house but it’s not obvious so I will make sure future guess are aware of this. Hope to welcome you another time soon! Property Owner

  • "Though I missed out due to Covid, the rest of the family had a wonderful time."

    Our three young grandaughters were very excited to return to Seagulls and loved their time there. The hot-tub provided great fun when at the house and the path through the dunes to the beach is great fun for 'little explorers '. The house is clean and well equipped for adults and children. Thank you.

    Hot tub was amazing and isn’t overlooked by neighbours. The beach was a few minute walk. A very peaceful weekend. We will be back!

  • "Situated a short stroll through unspoilt sand dunes from an equally unspoilt beach, Seagulls is a lovely house, comfortably furnished and exceptionally well equipped."

    The hot tub was a particular favourite with the younger members of the party. The owner could not have been more helpful. Newton village also ticks all the boxes having at least one splendid pub/restaurant (we haven't tried the others), a beautiful old church, a village green and shop, just 5 minutes walk from Seagulls. Highly recommended.

    Thankyou for the lovely feedback and we hope to welcome you again soon! Property Owner

    The house was clean but could do with modernising conservatory needed a good clean cobwebs everywhere garden needed a sweep fallen leaves and debris were all over it owner not very nice has changed us for broken curtains which we have not done beware take photos of things that are broken when you arrive or you could be charged for them

    Thank you so much for your valuable feedback. We are sorry to hear about the cobwebs in the conservatory. These have been removed. We have two beautiful cherry blossom trees in the garden which shed their blossom at this time of year. The garden is swept before each guest arrives, but if you had informed me that the cherry blossom was becoming a problem during your stay, I would have arranged for my cleaner to come round and sweep the garden a second time. We were rather surprised at your comments as when we contacted you during your stay, you did not make us aware of any issues. In regards to the curtains, the property is checked before and after your stay and there were no damages reported before your arrival. I am very sorry you feel that we were not pleasant to you. We endeavor to go the extra mile for our guests and do our upmost to ensure that you have a wonderful stay in our cottage. Thank you again for your valued comments. Property Owner

  • "We had a fantastic week at Seagulls with everything we could need for both adults and children, and spotlessly clean."

    The hot tub was a brilliant extra and much enjoyed and the toys were a great bonus for our grandchildren. We felt welcome and able to contact the owner had we needed to. We LOVED the location at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac and next to the path through the dunes to the nearest beach. It was perfect for our young grandchildren to have short visits to the beach when too chilly for long stays. The only thing we didn't like was having to leave at the end of our super week. Thank you!

  • "I did have wonderful time in the Seagull House."

    Changing scenery and relaxing hot tub evenings were very de-stressing for four adult house mates in those difficult times. The house is impressive, beautiful and very well equipped. Garden is great and very private. Place is very close to the beautiful beach, nature reserves and also local food stores and pub where people are very friendly. The Seagull House is very good base for visiting the South of Wales and Brecon Beacon. We really enjoyed our time here.

  • "Lovely place."

    Nice touch by owner with a surprise bottle of prosecco and tin of biscuits. Tea and coffee and uht milk provided also which was lovely. Gorgeous bathrooms. Lovely bedrooms and lounge. The downstairs loo and kitchen were not as updated but perfectly fine. Dining room table was awesome we all wanted one the same! Hot tub was gorgeous even in the rain. Would have been lovely to have had some sort of gazebo or pergola over it for when rain really bad but we didnt mind. If we were picky ..itd be lovely to have salt and pepper cellars also at the cottage for breakfasts. And perhaps a new set of placemats. Thank you. Definitely would return.

  • "The house was beautiful and the owners had provided absolutely everything we needed."

    When we arrived we found a welcome gift of a bottle of wine and biscuits, which was so good. There was a large TV in the lounge and it was decided that another small TV in one of the bedrooms would have been a big help as we had four children with us, two boys and two girls, and there were arguments about it. Just a small problem and the only thing we would change. The fact that the beach is just five minutes away was wonderful and it is a lovely beach. Hot tub perfect. The house was clean and in a wonderful position. We would, without doubt, stay at this house again. Very good holiday with lovely weather.
