    The cottage has everything you could need - log burner and hot tub are also amazing! Bed was also very comfortable and kitchen has everything you could need! Very thoughtful welcome back also which was great fully received - Even some treats for the dog ! Even though the owners are just next door the cottage feels very private however they are right there if you have any queries! We took our border collie and the garden was secure for him to roam whilst we enjoyed a relax in the hot tub! Would highly recommend this cottage - feels very secluded however only a short drive to Tesco and local shops. We had lovely days out in Tenby, Saundersfoot, burry port llanstefan and ferry side. The only downside was having to come home! We will Definately be returning to this beautiful little cottage.

    We had a great time with our dog and we were made to feel very welcome and we definitely felt at home for our week. The cottage is amazing with everything you would need, it was clean and bedding smelled lovely. The log burner and hot tub just topped it off and we even had a sprinkling of snow. So much more we want to explore I will definitely book again. Thank you

  • "Beautiful little cottage in a stunning part of the world (the pics don't do it justice)."

    We had everything we needed for a relaxing and stress free week. The welcome pack (bottle of wine, bread, eggs, milk, Welsh tea cakes and dog treats) for us and our dog Buddy was greatly appreciated. We used the lovely comfortable bed (there are two double beds) on the first floor. It was very comfortable and the bedding smelled lovely and fresh. Due to it being February the log burner was very much appreciated and used every night, even though the cottage was warm throughout. It was the perfect place to walk the dog and visit other places of interest. There is also local shops and eateries nearby if needed. The icing on the cake was the hot tub, which we used throughout our stay and was the perfect way to relax at the end of the day. Lin and Keith are great hosts and were easily contactable if needed, but never intruded on our privacy. Thank you both for a great stay and we will definitely return. Rosetta and Andrew x

  • "This is our 2nd visit to Crooked Hill Cottage."

    We love it! Lin and Keith are such wonderful hosts. We were 2 adults with a dog for 7 night stay. Welcome pack including essentials, bread, milk, cheese, eggs and butter. Lovely treat of wine and welshcakes. All Welsh produce! Then the dog treats such a lovely touch. We would take the dog out for the majority of the day. Round the back of property there is a hot/cold water taps which makes showering the dog so easy! Then when coming back in the cottage the heating comes on at certain times of the day which was perfect for coming back after wintery cold walks. The hot tub is a great hit at the end of the day too to unwind and soak the sore muscles from walking. I could go on and on all day but to sum it up. The great thing about staying in Crooked Hill is that Lin and Keith have literally thought of everything you would need to make your stay here as comfortable as possible. Which makes you want to come back time and time again!

    The cottage is really well equipped, the beds are luxuriously comfortable and the hot tub and log burner are a real treat! The owners live next door and are so friendly and welcoming without being intrusive. It's also nice that the cottage feels so private due to the position of the garden and hot tub, you are not overlooked at all. The garden is secure for dogs, although there is a stone wall with a long drop down to a stream, so we did have to watch that they weren't going to do anything daft! This is the best cottage we've stayed in, thank you for such a brilliant Christmas getaway, and hopefully we'll return sometime!

    A tad tricky to locate (signage on turning to property could be enhanced) and was grateful we were still travelling in the daylight, having said that you are in the midst of the most idyllic countryside! We resorted to using the 3 little words app successfully! On arrival we were given a very warm welcome by Lin the owner who showed us around the most quaint, cosy (but spacious) and clean cottage we have ever stayed at! The generous welcome pack which included fresh eggs, chocs, wine - to name but a few items, was gratefully received. The beds were super comfy, and the added bonus of the hot tub was wonderful to ease those aches after a day out. We managed a few trips out, amongst them Laugharne which is not only a must for Dylan Thomas fans but it’s vista’s are incredible. The immediate area surrounding the cottage has plenty of lovely parks and trails to stretch one’s legs! All in all, a fabulous stay in a beautiful part of Wales and we will definitely return to this amazing cottage!!!

    On th advert it says dogs welcome, but after booking and then receiving the email it turns out there were parts of the cottage the dogs were no allowed, I think this should be made clearer in the original advert as onced booked you cannot get a refund. It was also a shame that the dogs didn't really have a grassy area to be in when om the garden. The hot tub was lovely and the actual cottage was lovely but a clearer description would have been helpful. Lin was a lovely host.

  • "Cottage has been wonderfully done and everything there and more you could ever need."

    Fluffy white think towels, quality bedding, the most comfortable beds ever! Views of beautiful countryside all around. Owners Lin and Keith very helpful and friendly they have done a wonderful job on this newly refurbished cottage. The hot tub was checked daily and chemicals added. The hot tub was amazing it’s huge with very powerful jets and totally private. Star watching at night is a must from there! Also a lovely sitting area with fire pit and bbq. Loads to do in the area, or sit back and relax choice is yours. Totally dog friendly and ours loved it here! The welcome pack has been well thought out. It has everything you need to get you started, till you venture out to the Tesco 10 minutes away. Can’t recommend this cottage highly enough. We will be returning and not often do we go back to the same place again.

  • "Best holiday we have ever had thanks to the fantastic cottage & the owners Linda & keith."

    who we're so friendly & on hand to give information on the surrounding areas. The cottage was amazing with the log burner, awsome hot tub and secluded rural location in the hills overlooking Ammanford town. After a long days walking over the Breacon Beacons, it was an absolute luxury to go back and relax at crooked hill cottage. Lots to see & do in south Wales, will definitely be back for more holiday at this gem of a cottage to explore more of South Wales. Great time had by the Gaston family
