  • "We had a wonderful family holiday in Kidwelly School House."

    The house is very comfortable, spacious, so sympathetically perfect for relaxation and slowing down. We enjoyed cooking in the very well equipped kitchen, dining in the separate dining room which can be warmly lit for lovely dinners as well as being a bright morning room looking out into the garden. The lounge is large, comfy and full of interest - we had some great family evenings in our chosen seats for the week! Again the lighting is super. We loved the bathroom, so much space and light. Each of us enjoyed our respective bedrooms which are decorated with wallpapers and traditional furnishings. It’s just a lovely place to be. The village is a great base to explore from, the castle is ever present over the river and bridge which lead to the high street. We already look forward to returning and highly recommend.

    The owners came to see us at check in and tell us whats needed and few ideas on were to go and what was available. Beach was only 15 mins drive away and dogs loved that as did we. All in all this si perfect location to base yourself for a visit to this area and we would happily return again.

  • "Overall very comfortable and enjoyable stay."

    Development points to make better as follows: Master bedroom had superior mattres (possibly memory foam) compared to others Would be better if all had this. Sykes needs to update their website to show third bedroom as it doesn't do the property justice. Having 1 x key for 6 x residents isn't always practical, we always left key in the safe holder. Kitchen bin was a bit small especially for 6 x residents. More coat hooks would be great especially on rainy days. Having the jack and Jill toilet upstairs is a positive but third bedroom is without which was a bit awkward when sharing Kitchen door does not lock properly Windows in sitting room were often difficult to open and close Taller and bigger fridge would help loads with large family and also those with bad backs and knees Having a fan or 2 on request would be beneficial especially during summer Please don't interpret above as a rant, the stay was great and would come again, just a believer in continual enhancement

  • "Our second stay at a beautiful home, in a lovely location."

    Amazing weather (obvs out of owner's control) no doubt added to the positive experience however Castle School House is simply one of the best we have stayed in. Roomy, very well equipped & furnished, with a lovely secure courtyard for dog. Local walks and area is perfect for those who want a gentle, but active, holiday on the doorstep plus more locations to explore within very short drive (pembrey, llansteffan). Castle literally within 2 mins walk is a bonus (if member of Cadw or English Heritage even better with free entry). Convenience store within 2 minutes stroll, a larger supermarket a couple of minutes drive away although much larger/more selection are also within 15-30 mins drive. Town is very quiet - plenty of takeways, bar, pubs and friendly rugby club. Cottage itself is visually gorgeous, steeped in history and again we enjoyed reading the book detailing the school itself. All appliances easy to use, good quality and sufficient. Welcome pack (incl dog treats) very much appreciated - esp the local soap/and welcome card. Plenty of dvds for grandson to enjoy but the weather was on our side so local walks and area kept him occupied and tired for bed. Dog in particular really enjoys the stay - local walks are good for an older dog who loves some activity on the doorstep. The river walks are great. Locals all friendly and helpful, although the area was so peaceful and quiet we didn't feel surrounded by others. Home owner popped by to check we were happy/no issues but apart from that left us totally to ourselves. Really clear communication before setting off. As mentioned the great weather helped make this week but even our previous stay (with gales, storms and plenty of rain) wasn't dampened by the weather. It's a gorgeous stay, in a lovely house with attentive to detail owners. Highly suspect we'll be booking a fortnight very soon

    Appreciated being able to park off road. The cottage is spacious, well furnished and very well equipped. Extremely thoughtful and comprehensive welcome pack, which makes such a difference. Great location for exploring and we found lots of new places (Burry Port, Preseli, Fishguard etc) as well as visiting some old favourites (Tenby/Saundersfoot, Wiseman's Bridge, Swansea/Mumbles). We still have so much to explore in the area that we may well book again... The only issue we had was with the boiler not firing properly for hot water and the owner responded very quickly, although it couldn't be fixed during our time there.

  • "An absolutely lovely 'cottage', in a quiet location literally minutes walk from castle, riverside walks and local shops."

    It's surprisingly large, the pictures do not give the home justice: roomy, extremely comfortable and very warm. Amenities and furnishings excellent, the only 2 negatives in our opinion were 1. having only booked one week and needing to leave and 2. the weather, whilst wet, was too warm to give the remote control fire a go! Very helpful and welcoming owners dropped by on day of arrival, and the welcome pack was one of the most generous we've had with a lovely personal touch. Local shops for all you need, but not a long drive to megastores. Enjoyed walking Pembrey Country Park (not far at all by car) despite being rained off/walks cut short on a couple of days the dog still enjoyed her forest and beach walks. Absolutely lovely break - now wishing we'd booked both weeks of a 2 week break in this cottage!

    Everything was thought of down to milk in the fridge and tea and coffee on arrival. Kitchen was a joy to use - I stayed here with my 3 daughters and cooked every night but one. We ate out at Naz, fabulous meal, also the Kidwelly Deli was fab for lunch. Our dogs were in heaven with so many beaches to choose from, all within an hours drive. Favourite was Freshwater East. Small issues were, only the king bed was comfy, the others not. One of the sofas was lovely to sit on, but the matching armchair was actually a bit broken. But this would not be enough to stop us staying again.

    The house was really spacious, clean and well decorated with everything we needed including a nice welcome pack. Our hosts Christine and Mike were very welcoming and friendly. There were even some extras we didn't expect - a gas BBQ, recliner sofas, a huge DVD collection to choose from, body boards and kites to borrow, all of which we thoroughly enjoyed using. The house is in a great location, only a two minute walk from the nearest shop and ten minutes to a large co-op. We had a lovely breakfast at the Gatehouse, a minute away, and had some great food from one of the local Chinese takeaways (also serving fish & chips) and the Kidwelly Deli. It was just a couple of minutes by foot to the impressive Kidwelly Castle, and we also discovered an amazing kids' play area by walking along the river past the castle one day. We spent several days visiting the Pembrey Country Park with its fantastic sandy beach, dry ski slope and toboggan run, and travelled a short distance to the indoor water park in Swansea on a rainy day. It was a perfect week away in friendly South Wales, definitely recommended.

    Its location is excellent being close to the centre of Kidwelly and only 10 minutes'; drive to Pembrey Country Park. We've stayed at quite a number of other properties before and we have to say that the welcome pack we received surpassed anything we've ever had previously. Our main contact with our hosts was via Christine who was on hand when we arrived in case we had any issues. We didn't want to leave when our stay came to an end so we did ask if it would be possible to stay longer. Unfortunately - as we expected - the property was already booked, but Christine did kindly ring around other property owners in the area to see if anything else was available. Sadly nothing came of this, but we very much appreciated the efforts Christine made on our behalf. For dog owners staying at the property the only pubs we found that served food, were within walking distance and were dog friendly were the Mason's Arms and The White Lion ; of the two the more comprehensive menu is served by The White Lion, but the food in the Mason's Arms was fine. We did also drive to The Red Lion to eat and we'd recommend their food highly although if you have a dog it's probably best to book in advance. In terms of beaches we'd recommend Pembrey, Llansteffan, and Pendine
