We had an amazing week in this cottage. The cottage is well equipped and beautifully decorated with some lovely furniture. The view across the harbour is lovely. There is a steep drive up to the cottage but we found this didn't cause any problems, it was a steep walk back from the beach, so we mainly drove down. Our dogs were also well catered for, with dog beds and their own towels. There were lots of activities within the local area, we especially liked Pembrey Country park which is a ten minute drive - there is a beautiful beach, dry skiing, archery, toboggans etc. We would defiantly return,
“The property was fantastic and very comfortable.”
It was clean and I would recommend it without hesitation.
“We had a great holiday in this cottage, it was well equppied and a beautiful place to stay.”
We did the twenty minute walk to the beach a couple of times, but due to the steep walk we mainly drove down. The cottage was very comfortable and beautifully laid out, with lovely decor. We would defiantly return.
“Having used Sykes over many years and having stayed at this cottage 5 years ago we knew we were going to be assured of a great holiday and were not disappointed, great cottage with stunning views with the bonus of terrific weather made for a relaxing break for us and our friends, the only thing lacking in this cottage is a decent sized fridge which is pathetically sized given the number of bed spaces and really needs upgrading.”
Thank for yet again giving us a great holiday Barry & Hazel
“Would be good to have directions as difficult to find.”
Welcome back in the house with information about the area would be helpful. Also bins and mirrors in all bedrooms and hole in wall in en suite needs filling. However these are small things - it is a lovely property with fantastic views and we would stay there again
“Photos don’t do it justice.”
Beautiful house with bags of space and everything you might need. Lots of privacy and a peaceful location . Beautiful views and short easy drive to lovely beaches. We would love to come again when we can all find the time to get together! It was perfect.
“Cosy cottage and a great location”
We had a lovely weekend at the cottage, perfect for getting friends or extended family together and it had everything we needed! Great location for all sorts of activities, we went for a walk along the coast and visited the dry ski slopes.
We have just returned home from a three night stay at this great house. We were a party of eight, plus one dog. We found the property to be everything we could have asked for. Lots of space, comfy beds, nice and warm with the heating on. Kitchen well equipped, could have done with some more wine glasses! It is situated high up above Burry Port giving a spectacular sea view. Easy walking down to the harbour and beach, hard work coming back uphill, but we're all fit so not a problem. I have to say though, it is more than 15 minutes walk to the beach. We walked at speed and it took almost 25 minutes. The town is rather run down and no actual restaurants but if you like pub food or take away then you'll be ok. Great time enjoyed by all.

“A beautiful holiday home for a fantastic weekend!”
We have just returned from a long weekend (Friday-Monday), what a beautiful house in a beautiful location. We were a group of 6 adults and 3 children under the age of 4, the house accommodated everyone's needs. The children loved the cave in the garden, everyone had a good laugh with the fancy dress box and the views were stunning. Even the 2 dogs had a great time and came home exhausted! All the rooms are well equipped and comfortable, there are a few utensils missing from the kitchen (we needed a couple more wine glasses and cooking utensils but we managed) Burry Port itself as a town is more residential, but the port is a lovely walk. Walking down into Burry Port from the house is a pleasant walk but the walk back is a bit of a climb so you need to be fit! Tenby was a 45 minute drive away and we had a great time on the beach, on our drive home we took a diversion to Rhossilli Bay and Caswell Bay which are beautiful. The only thing we struggled with was to find a nice pub/restaurant to eat in locally, we searched before we left and booked The Stradey Arms, Furnace, Llanelli for Sunday Carvery, it was a disappointment to say the least; roast potatoes done in a deep fat fryer, tinned peas, bought in Yorkshire puddings. £7.95 for a carvery so I guess you get what you pay for but it was very difficult to find a nice "eating pub"; the pubs seemed to be more "locals drinking pubs". This didn't spoil our holiday though, nobody wanted to come home and hopefully we will return!
“Excellent holiday home”
Stayed in the house for the last week of August. The house is beautiful throughout and had everything our two families needed. The location of the house in Burry Port means that the view out to sea is stunning. Burry Port itself is more of a residential location but we liked this as did not want a typical commercial seaside location. A few pubs, shops and chip shops were all we required. We spent 4 of our days at Pembrey Country Park at the beautiful beach there. We also used the crazy golf and tobogganing at the park. It was well worth the £5 parking charge. Also spent a day in Tenby but all agreed we preferred the beach at Pembrey. Lovely holiday accommodation - the children and adults didn't want to come home!
“South Wales holiday”
Absolutely beautiful home. Very comfortable with lots of space to spread out. Easy to walk down to the village but need to be fit to walk back. Whole area lovely, very close to beautiful beaches and close by driving to shopping. Overall a wonderful weeks holiday in lovely surroundings
“lovely well equipped cottage”
Had a wonderful long weekend ( friday to tuesday) with my family at this gem of a cottage. Our party consisted of 9 adults and a grandson who is nearly three. All rooms are clean and well kept and there are nice "touches" both inside and outside the property. For instance, a box of fancy dress costumes and various games are in the lounge, a BBQ on the decking outside which all helped to make our stay fun. The garden was a wonderland for my grandson with a cave and a swing and slide. All in all, a great place for quality time together and a good base for exploring the surrounding areas. Big thanks to Vanessa for her consideration and the cakes!!
What a fabulous place to stay and we also enjoyed fabulous weather in March! The sitting room and kitchen were very spacious and well equipped for our large group of ten people. The deck was amazing for the view of the bay and we were thrilled to be able to use it. The garden equipment and furniture was excellent. We had four cars and there was plenty of room. The log burners were very welcome in the evenings but remember to take your own kindling and logs as the ones we bought from the garage were not very dry. The bedrooms and bathrooms were excellent and we all slept really well. Vanessa, the owner was very kind and send me all sorts of recommends and information. There were Welch Cakes, biscuits and milk in the fridge when we arrived. We walked for 15 minutes to reach the beautiful shore line and walked for over two hours along the easy access path (great for bikes, prams, little ones, wheelchairs etc). Did not get in our car from when we arrived to when we left. Town has a few places for eating some very nice pub grub type cuisine. Very relaxing and enjoyable. Do not hesitate to book, it felt like a home that someone had just handed over for the weekend, rather than a holiday lt.
What a wondrous home! Lovely warm feeling from the moment you enter plenty of outdoor space and the rear garden complete with cave and amazing decking area perfect for barbecues or that night cap. I cannot begin to describe the value for money we got from this holiday and the owners were lovely but perfectly distant. Already planning our return next year and the extended family want to come too!
