  • "Thank you for letting us stay in your lovely beach hut, it was very comfortable and really well equipped with everything we needed for our stay."

    The location was amazing and we really didn't want to leave. Will be rebooking a stay there again very soon.

  • "Great place to stay plenty of room with good facilities."

    Nice outside seating area and easy access to the beach (100 m walk). We will certainly stay again.

  • "Read some RV."

    It is what it is. Nice comfy place. Should have said no TV but took our own enjoyed the area. Could be made to look artistically nice from outside with a bit of gardening otherwise lovely break

  • "Outside area very tired ."

    . not secure for dogs which would have been helpful to know. Very tiny area of grass in unattractive setting round the back of the garden. All around the building was scruffy. Inside very comfortable - happy with that save for few reservations: No mirror in one of the bedrooms, no bedside light either, nor bedside table.

    Not easy to find if you arrive after dark.a lot of water damage to property which owner attempted to repair but in my opinion done badly.if you look closely to their photos can clearly see water damages.doors and windows not air tight.property feels damp when first arrived.had to put fire on as not enough heat source but had to clean fire first !! only cleaning equipment is a broom and dust pan and brush.no hoover ? both settee covers can do with a wash or maybe replacements.only good point about property is a comfortable bed and beautiful area.pull cord switches doesnt always work.had to replace light bulb in kitchen.replacement bulbs in bathroom covered with cobweb and dust.value for money and meet covid cleaniness-definitely not.will upload photos on a later stage

  • "Very homely and restful."

    The area is stunning and natural. Really wonderful. Dishes needed washing before use. I am not a fan of fabric softener on the tea towels. Too greasy for drying dishes.

  • "Exactly as described and expected."

    The location is remote and lovely, a number of shacks spaced out around a few acres, but with trees and shrubs giving a sense of privacy. Didn't feel at all British, more like the sort of places you find in countries like Australia. Hope you don't need it, but there is a very good vet at the showground on the A40, right side of Carmarthen and very easy to get to. Took our old Lab who collapsed in the heat expecting the worse, only to get her back at 7 the next morning good as new, having been treated with oxygen, ice, etc. So that being said, this is an absolutely perfect place for a dog holiday. Not many people there, but those that were all seemed to have dogs, and to be tolerant and considerate. Also, facilities were absolutely fine.

  • "Whilst the bathroom, bedroom and kitchen were generally acceptable, although not good, the living areas were poorly maintained and in an unacceptable state of cleanliness."

    On arrival we had to do a thorough clean of all surface areas, including soft furnishings. There were two sofas, we only sat on one, after surface washing, drying and spraying with dettol upholstery aerosol, the other sofa remained unused. The rocking chair was filthy and need several cleanings and spraying before it could be used. There was a large fresh blood stain on the back of this chair too. All switches and light pulls had to be cleaned, the floor lamp was filthy. Under beds remain dusty. Most of the cobwebs have been removed, but not the large old one between the oven door glass. The Beach Shack was far cleaner after our stay than it was before. The Shack was well ventilated - you could see through gaps in the walls and around all the poorly fitting windows. Two of the three external doors were non-operational. There appears to be a number of attempts to fill small holes around the wooden frame windows with random blotches of white filler, which was then left un-sanded etc. The garden was overgrown, although there was recent evidence of hacking back of the brambles. However, the kitchen utensils and dishes etc were clean and appropriate, the bedding and towels were clean and there were clear instructions re waste disposal. This Beach Shack has obviously been loved in the past and could be lovely again with some care and attention to detail. The location was the Beach Shack's saving grace. It was idyllic, very beautiful beach and excellent country walks.

  • "Do not book this property !"

    ! What the owners describe as rustic is just a poor excuse for bad maintenance . The garden is the worst kept on site and is a breeding ground for rats ,not rabbits as was told they were ! In the event of a fire only one door has keys ,which the owner has actually emailed to say is the case . Wooden shack and no fire escapes ? Sykes will not refund so be very careful when booking .

  • "Where do I start."

    . Very difficult to locate with inaccurate directions and nobody answering the phone to speak to about this! The local shop within 1 mile appears to be closed constantly and shuts daily at 14:00 meaning when you check in at at 15:00 there is nowhere to shop - nearest supermarket is 20 mins away. The shack is held together with temporary repairs and just needs some tlc. We spent the first night deep cleaning the touch points and surfaces. 2 door handles are broken which made using them interesting. Spiders and cobwebs everywhere, including oven (yes that’s that right, the oven). Children and us refused to sit on furniture so purchased some bed sheets to use as sofa covers. Previous guests food was left in fridge, shower also had previous users belongings in. Active wasp nest on the side. Our Dog developed an allergy whilst there which must be dust related. Dog poo left in the garden from previous user. Checked out early. I could go on and on… Been back two weeks and still await feedback and a resolution from Sykes, very disappointed. I will be exploring false advertisement of this holiday

  • "Peace and quiet and nature are in abundance at this property."

    Spent a lovely week here exploring South Wales. Short walk to the village which was very friendly, in fact everywhere we went was the same.

  • "What a lovely weekend stay!"

    The shack is in an amazing location if peace and quiet is what you’re after, the beds are super comfortable and the log burner was cosy in the evenings. Cleanliness was okay, but a few things missed (bins not emptied, shower screen dirty, cobwebs in windows). Also a microwave would have been handy- although that could just be a personal preference. Overall though, a lovely, peaceful break and we would recommend!

  • "Wow! We have been coming to the Beach Shack Ferrypoint for more than 10 years and it gets better and better!"

    We loved the new decking, completing the perfect sun trap and made good use of the new fridge freezer- the freezer drawers perfect for a big Covid food shop and speed chilling the Prosecco. So lovely to stroll along the estuary, enjoying the spring sunshine, bluebells, primroses and fruit tree blossom with amazing wildlife, particularly enjoying seeing the herons and egrets The Beach Shack has the most comfortable holiday bed ever and it is great to avoid TV, Wifi and other districtions ( although good 4G signal just in case!) so that we can unwind gently with a good book in perfect peace and quiet. We will be back in the summer!! Mark and Milly from Oxforshire

  • "This was a lovely beach holiday for us and the dogs."

    It would have been good to have some instructions In the shack about the coloured bags for the rubbish and where to dispose of it. On a practical note I would remove the very torn, stained voile curtain from the front door as this creates the wrong impression. We would certainly book another holiday there.
