  • "Lovely cottage extremely spacious and clean."

    Quiet location and close to the beach and shops. Only one downfall the television remote did not work properly which was very frustrating. Everything else top class.

  • "Beautiful cottage , extremely well presented and spotlessly clean ."

    The only niggle was that we had one tea towel and 1 towel each , I would have had a couple of each . Didn't hinder our stay although I felt guilty having to launder them I felt it was a waste of electricity. Home from home I would recommend this cottage. It the best one I've been in .

  • "Really enjoyed our stay at Reva’s cottage, a really clean comfortable cottage."

    The patio door lock perhaps needs a bit of oil, and the bath plug - I worked out to use a simple butter knife to flip it out as suction prevents it popping out to drain off. Little things that weren’t a problem really. A bit more info about parking options would be useful. The ‘step’ into the back garden via the driveway needs a re think, But we’d go back there and also recommend to friends and family . Loved it!

  • "We had a great time staying in this lovely house."

    There are beautiful dog friendly beaches and coastal walks within walking distance and also several local dog friendly cafes and pubs. We loved it and so did Dylan the dog.

  • "Had an absolutely fantastic week in this beautiful holiday home."

    Was spotlessly clean when we arrived and smelled amazing. We visited the lovely local beach a few times and had some Crepes from Crazy Crepes Cafe which were delicious. House was so lovely and we had such an amazing time, we didn't want to leave! Hope to come back again!

  • "Really enjoyed our stay in Reevas Retreat, Accommodation is first class & would definitely recommend."

    Nothing was too much trouble, no hair dryer on arrival but after a call to owner she promptly dropped off one. Mick, Jill , Faye & Alfie

  • "The house is beautiful and very comfortable, the garden great for the dog, location to a few shops and pubs just a short walk away."

    My only criticism would be the bathroom, would be better with a proper enclosed shower, but that is just my preference. Apart from that no complaints whatsoever!

  • "This is a Beautiful holiday home- contemporary, spotless & minimalistic ."

    We’ve Been to Burry port on at least 8/9 occasions and this property is immaculate comfortable & peaceful . This home is in our top 2 favourites and we are hoping to return shortly . Thank you for your extremely thoughtful welcome pack & goodies - very much appreciated . I only have one thing to add which would complete perfection - a stair rail! As the stairs are quite steep ,It’s tempting to run hands along the wall for safety- I’m starting to feel old! The owner is extremely helpful & compromising and available if needed. Thank you for a lovely stay . Hope to See you very soon! Siân James Lou & Bryn ( the Welsh terrier)

    Thank you so much for your lovely and honest review. I totally agree with you about hand rail on stairs, will get this done asap. Many thanks Property Owner

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.

For the shoppers in your party, Carmarthen is a vibrant shopping centre, with lots of main chain stores plus small, unique Welsh gift shops, lovely restaurants, tea rooms, pubs, a bowling alley and a cinema for film buffs. Llanelli offers a great range of out of town shopping, a modern cinema, a theatre and a leisure centre, as well as a Nicklaus-designed modern links golf course. For horse racing fans, the Ffos Las racecourse is open all year with many meetings and is fast becoming the best new racecourse in the UK. The lovely eight mile long Cefn Sidan beach is just over 2 miles away, one of the treasures of Pembrey Country Park. Motor enthusiasts can enjoy an extensive calendar of events at the nearby Pembrey Motor Sports Centre, whilst nature lovers will adore the National Wetlands Centre Wales at the eastern end of the Millennium Coastal Park.
