  • "We've had a great stay provided with everything needed."

    Loved the jacuzzi bathtub and also the view from the garden was amazing for the morning coffee. Pet and child friendly and also the location very near to the local attractions and sea side. Thanks for everything! xxx

  • "We really enjoyed our stay."

    It is a 300 year old stone built cottage with a real character. The hosts live next doors and really wonderful - we needed some extra wood for the fireplace and came back from our day trip at 8 and they were so kind to literally chop a few and provide it to us. We would like to go back again. Btw many reviews talk about the sharp left turn - it is quite manageable actually and not a worry. But what might help is some sort of boundary near the stream - just makes manoeuvring your car a easier for the city dwellers :-)

  • "Wow what can I say!"

    An absolutely stunning view from both the garden and the windows of the cottage of Burry Port. Well worth the hill climb to reach it. The cottage has everything you need but if you do need anything the owners are just next door. We had ages from 4 to 56 in our family staying at the cottage and we all loved it, none of us wanted to leave. When we booked we didn't know if there would be enough to do with the children, but having beaches at both Burry Port and Pembrey Park sorted that worry out. So happy we've got another week booked in the summer, can't wait to return. Thank you Mary and Steve, see you both soon.

    The sofas were very comfortable and the kitchen was brilliant. We would definitely like to go back again. we couldn’t walk down the side of the double bed easily so had to shift it and bunk room definitely needs a skylight blind please;)

  • "A lovely cottage with beautiful views."

    Has a wood burner that was so nice to sit and relax in the evening and kept the place really warm. The owner had equipped the cottage out for everything we could of possibly needed including throws on the bed, it really was a homily, and I will definitely be looking at booking again in the future.the owner lives next door and was there to greet us and was on hand if we needed them. We didn't have much interaction with Steve but Mary was so lovely.

    We loved the cottage in the hillside, the views, clean air and even the water tasted better. The fresh eggs and local treats were a nice surprise too.

  • "The owners were very friendly and made sure everything in this cosy cottage was to our satisfaction, but it really did have everything we could possibly need."

    The views from the garden and upstairs rooms are breathtaking. Burry Port is a friendly village with a lovely coffee shop, bakery and amenities. The harbour and beach are a 30 mins walk or 5 mins drive from the cottage. In short a very comfortable cottage which serves as a fantastic base to explore the best coast line in the UK!

  • "Fantastic location!"

    Mary, the owner was so kind and helpful. Nothing was too much trouble and she recommended lots of local sights and places to eat etc. The area is stunning and amazing for dogs - miles of places to run free - Pembrey, Burry Port and loads of other beaches nearby all sandy and stretch for miles! The Gower is wort a visit and loads of dog friendly pubs, castles and other attractions. The cottage was cosy, and the master bedroom was tight for space around the bed (my wife is pregnant), but well equipped, clean and sports a good size kitchen and lounge. Only slightly negative thing is that there were no decent sharp knives, so bring your own (there were some serrated ones but they were flimsy). Other than that we will be back!!

  • "Great location; very cosy, comfortable accommodation and friendly, welcoming hosts."

    Short walk to off-road (but good surface) coastal route along which you can walk or cycle to Kidwelly (impressive castle) in one direction and the Gower in the other. Trains from Burry Port go to Kidwelly and beyond or Swansea and beyond. Also reasonable bus services, so you can ditch the car altogether and have an environmentally-friendly time exploring. Bike hire available at Pembrey Country Park, less than two miles away along the coastal path. A car is needed, though, to visit Wales National Botanical Gardens (great day out: good cafe with amazing vegan cakes and large, nice, warm greenhouses to shelter in if it rains!). Oh, and the best Indian food ever at Naz's restaurant in Pembrey. Definitely plan to go back to Graig Cottage.

  • "The stay at the cottage was perfect."

    We were 3 chaps on an Aikido summer school in Burryport. The cottage was a 15 minute walk or a 5 minute drive to the centre of Burryport. When we arrived there was some provender to get us going (delicious fruit cake). The bedrooms were small but adequate for our use (sleeping). The kitchen was well equipped and modern. The whole cottage had a lovely warm feel of age whilst being modern enough to live in for a week. The host live next door and she was very helpful.

  • "A warm welcome from Mary, who showed us around the cottage and answered a few questions abut the area."

    Mary was always on-hand to answer any queries we had, but was unobtrusive and made it clear that we were to feel at home while we were staying. The cottage was compact, but warm, clean and comfortable. The master bedroom was comfortable with ample wardrobe space for our stay.The were were plenty of power points and the WiFi worked very well. All appliances worked as expected. Burry Port town centre was around a quarter of an hours walk from the cottage which is situated above the town. Burry Port itself was typical of an out-of-season coastal holiday town, but we expected that booking at the end of November. As we planned a fair bit of walking, this was not an inconvenience. There are some spectacular views from Burry Port harbour, especially when the tide was out, and the Millenium Coastal Path runs through the harbour, which gave some pleasant, well surfaced and level walking in either direction from Burry Port. The neighbouring towns of Pembrey and Pwll are in easy walking distance from Burry Port if you wanted to explore. Carmarthen and Swansea are reachable by a short train journey. We went to Carmarthen by train and enjoyed the views along the coast and estuary. All in all, a very enjotable break, with the cottage a great place to come "home" to. Many Thanks Mary

The toboggan run was great fun from my boys aged 9 & 11 to my Mom in law who's 80. We had a blast!!!) Mary also told us about some local, dog friendly pubs which was fantastic.

    Owner was lovely and welcoming. Our little boy loved the chickens in the garden and wouldn't let us go without feeding them one last time. Location was great, the road up to the cottage was a little tricky but apart from that it was very easy to find with the satnav. We had a lovely time, even though it was only 1 proper full day, ideally we should have booked a few days to get the most out of the travel time from where we live! Hopefully we will be back!

The cottage itself is exactly as seen in the photos, very well kept and with all the necessities provided. I can definitely see myself coming back here again in the future.

The welcoming kitchen with a dining area is perfect for making family meals and for preparing those scrumptious picnics, and at the end of the day snuggle up in front of the warming woodburning stove on those cooler evenings, or step out and enjoy the view with a drink just outside the door.

Three individually unique bedrooms ensure a good night’s sleep, or why not relax in the Jacuzzi bath before planning your next day’s activities?

Just 20 yards away is an enclosed lawned garden, and a bonus to staying at this delightful cottage is that you can pick your own eggs from the owners’ chicken coop, or enjoy seasonal produce from their fruit and veg garden.

Burry Port is perfectly located on the beautiful South West Wales coastline and has a selection of shops, a Post Office, several pubs and restaurants. The golf club is renowned for offering all year round sport, no matter what the weather throws at you, and the sandy beach is equally delightful on hot summer, or wild stormy winter days. The harbour is a hive of activity, where you can sit and watch the fishermen return to shore with their fish laden boats.
