    We couldn’t fault the house, the beds were really comfortable, kitchen was well equipped (except for not having a sieve to drain rice) and good off road parking. The view over the estuary was also beautiful. Our only complaint was that after ringing Sykes to ask if the garden was enclosed for dogs ie fenced we were asked if we could come a week later as a gate was going to be fitted so the garden would be secure before our stay. However the garden was actually only enclosed by a hedge in some places with big gaps leading out onto the road and a massive gap under the gate that even an Alsatian could get under. Sadly this meant that we couldn’t let our dogs out loose as they'd easily get out onto the road. This was meant to be a recovery holiday for my mum as she wasn’t well, we’d planned to just sit out in the garden but couldn’t sit out as it just wouldn’t be fair to leave the dogs inside. We had to take them out on the lead morning and night. I notice the listing has been updated to say the garden is enclosed by a hedge and there is no additional fencing but I do think that when the property says dog friendly, the garden should be secure. The only other thing was that the listing said fuel was included however the wood burner in the living room only had one compressed log. The living room only had a small radiator so on rainy days the wood burner was needed. The instructions at the property said you could only use those type of logs however there was a massive pile of logs outside the property locked away?

The property

Positioned between Llanelli town and the beautiful harbour town of Burry Port, in the small village of Pwll, which cradles part of the South West Wales coastline, is Cefn Goleu just 10 mins from the Millenium Coastal Path.

This spacious holiday home is in a desirable location for scenic cycling routes and gentle walking trails, with plenty more attractions nearby to keep the whole family entertained.

It is well-suited to groups of friends, couples or a large family looking to get away to the sea and experience a different kind of holiday.

Kick off your shoes in the hallway, on return from one of your coastal adventures, and make yourselves comfortable in the lounge.

The woodburning stove will keep you toasty and warm during those winter months, as you curl up on the sofa with your loved ones in front of the TV.

You have a lovely double bedroom occupying the ground floor, with a hanging rail, storage unit and dual aspect windows and is finished with a beautiful feature fireplace and surround.

As you head through to the kitchen, you can feel the warmth from the AGA range cooker as it continuously burns away in the background.

Rustle up a home-made meal with all your culinary needs catered for in the sleek, integrated kitchen units, and get the whole family together in the dining room to catch up over a bottle of wine and scrumptious food.

You can admire the wonderful views out of the bay window over the Gower estuary and imagine the sand between your toes.

At the end of your evening, catch your rest in the ground floor bedroom or head upstairs to find three more well-appointed bedrooms.

The master bedroom has a light and airy feel in such a large space, perfect for young families as it has plenty of room for a cot.

You can choose to relax in the bathtub in the family bathroom to soothe your aching muscles or wake up to a refreshing shower each morning, with the additional ground floor shower room coming in handy when you arrive back from the beach.

If walking and cycling is your thing, you can enjoy some of the most scenic routes in Wales along the Millennium Coastal Path, while the Pembrey Country Park offers activities galore, keeping the whole family entertained, try out Wales' longest toboggan run, discover many wildlife trails and find Cefn Sidan beach boasting eight miles of golden sands.

Nearby Llanelli offers many pubs and restaurants to grab a bite to eat and Carmarthen, many independent and high street shops to browse.

The house is conveniently located for trips to fantastic beaches on the Gower, shopping and restaurants on the Mumbles in Swansea, and visiting Camarthen and Pembrokeshire.

For the avid golfer Ashburnham and Machynys championship golf courses are each within 15 minutes drive, perfect.

Enjoy a relaxing holiday in idyllic surroundings.

About the location


Llanelli 2.6 miles; Carmarthen 16.9 miles

This small coastal village is nestled between the traditional mining town of Llanelli and idyllic Burry Port, on the South West Wales coastline. It boasts an elevated position rising away from the coast, giving you views of the Gower Peninsula, and it is also home to the Amelia Earhart Plaque, which commemorates the first woman to fly across the Atlantic Ocean, who landed in the estuary near Pwll in June 1928. The village also has a local shop, pet shop and Post Office, as well as a few pubs. Venture over to the bustling harbour at Burry Port and watch the fishermen return to shore with their boats brimming with fish, or pay a visit to the 8-mile long Cefn Sidan beach and 550 acres of lush woodland at Pembrey Country Park. Walkers and cyclists can discover one of the most scenic routes in Wales along the Millennium Coastal Path, and for all kinds of sports, Llanelli is the ideal location. You can watch rugby matches, try a spot of racing at the Pembrey Circuit and try out a series of golf courses, while Carmarthen, which is easily accessed by car, offers plenty for the shopping enthusiast. Visit Carmarthen Castle to brush up on your history of the area or choose to uncover many Welsh exhibits in the Carmarthenshire County Museum, and enjoy a picturesque train journey on the Gwili Steam Railway. With so much to see and do in this beautiful part of Wales, where better to stay on your next UK holiday?
