  • "Our second stay at this house, to see family but would also be great for visiting the surrounding coastline, The Gower and the countryside."

    The house is modern, on a very well looked after estate. It is in excellent decorative order, clean and has everything you could need for a holiday. We had one small problem which was quickly resolved by the care taker. We are looking forward to returning next year.

  • "Great clean property with a decent garden t."

    V and can connect net-flicks account to it etc. internet is easy to add either QR code or password enter. Great view of sea and golf course from upstairs. Heating works well nice en-suite complementary biscuits etc. the only one thing I’d say is the communication between me and the host wasn’t as good as I expected. When I paid there was some technical error and I wasn’t sure if the house had been properly confirmed. I was assured later it was but I text the host on the day when we were on route (7hrs) to check if the keys were there and everything was ok but still haven’t had a reply and we’ve finished our stay! Overall can’t fault it. You will need transport if staying here if wanting to go out as it’s quite a bit away from amenities

    The Millennium Coast Path offers lots of opportunities for both walking and cycling. Very nice beaches nearby that we could walk with the dogs.

  • "The house was beautiful, great location and comfortable."

    Only comments would be it would be useful to have a bin upstairs or in bathrooms. Overall cleanliness was good, but if you looked a bit closer there was a lot of dust on skirting boards and harder to reach areas and a number of cobwebs. It may be that as we went towards the end of season that it was due a deep clean. Didn't put us off having a wonderful break and would definitely be happy to return.

  • "We had a wonderful stay and were very impressed with this property."

    It is decorated and furnished to a high standard and the beds were extremely comfortable. There are only a couple of minor things we would mention: a) it would be useful to have small bins in the bathrooms/bedrooms b) the kitchen needs a cheese grater and ovengloves (the silicon ones provided were really difficult to grip with as they are just too stiff and unwieldy) c) TV - there have been other comments about this and we would just add that we too had great difficulty in sorting it out! Otherwise a great stay and we hope to come again.

    We are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay and thank you so much for your feedback, it’s extremely valuable to us as we always thrive to learn from our wonderful customers. I am pleased to say that the TV has now been replaced with a new, easy-to-use one that has everything that’s needed built-in. We hope to welcome you back soon. Property Owner

  • "The connection for the tv was lost when we arrived."

    Unfortunately help was not available until Monday but it was fixed very quickly on Monday. We were disappointed to find that the dustbins had not been emptied. Both bins were overflowing and there were numerous bottles on the floor. We did not know this until we were leaving and wanted to put our rubbish in the bin. Some instruction manuals for oven, washing machine and dryer would have been helpful. Waste bins in the en-suite and family bathroom would have been useful.

    We are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay and thank you so much for your feedback, it’s extremely valuable to us as we always thrive to learn from our wonderful customers. I am deeply apologetic with regards to the rubbish situation and have firmly fed this back to our cleaners! I am however pleased to say that the TV has now been replaced with a new, easy-to-use one that has everything that’s needed built-in. We hope to welcome you back soon. Property Owner

    It would have been nice to have had the garden tidied up. Very happy with our stay.

    We are so pleased to hear that you enjoyed our beautiful home and its surroundings, it really is a wonderful place to stay. We would also like to take opportunity to apologise for the garden at this time - We’ve had such beautiful weather that it seems to have flourished much faster than usual and our gardener wasn’t able to fit us in for a mow inbetween our usual fortnightly slot. We hope to host you again in the future. X Property Owner

  • "Really satisfied with the cleanliness and facilities within the house."

    We have stayed in many self catering properties within the British Isles and have always appreciated a welcome pack and a visitors guest book.This was sadly lacking so had no information about where to eat locally apart from the golf club and having a 5 and 8year old was not appropriate.My husband and I being dinosaurs had difficulties with the TV as there was no information. s

    We are so pleased to hear that you enjoyed the house itself, it really is a beautiful home to stay in. Regarding a few issues that you had; We proudly provide a basic welcome pack of tea, coffee, sugar, biscuits, dishwasher tablets etc, so are very sorry that this didn’t meet your standards. It’s something that we’ll take on board. The house also provides a great visitors book that recommends places to visit go/ activities to do within the area, but fortunately because there are so very many wonderful eateries (that accommodate all ages and pockets) within a 0.5-3mile radius from the house, we simply wouldn’t be able to keep up with the ever-changing recommendations for our guests with regards to that, so is why we choose not to, so sorry. With regards to the TV, we have ensured that there are extremely easy to follow, point-by-point instructions on how to access the correct TV channel on our digital Welcome pack to refer to…I hope this helps future guests. As always, we strive to learn from our customers feedback to help our future guests make the most of the home and its surrounding areas, so we thank you for all feedback given and hope to host you again in the future.

  • "Really lovely house in a great location, very comfortable beds, sofas."

    Everything you need in the kitchen, can't fault it. Only thing that would be helpful is an information folder with details of everything, it's more useful than constantly referring back to the email. Also there is no emergency contact, we had an alarm go off one evening, appeared to be coming from downstairs bathroom or locked area of utility.We phoned the sykes number, no joy. Only way we stopped alarm was to turn off all power then turn it back on. So the owners number would be extremely useful. Apart from that minor thing, we would highly recommend this house & would use again.

    Thank you for such helpful feedback, we always thrive to learn from our lovely customers experience. Please be assured that we now have processes in place in order to quickly sort out any noise/ alarm issues (Sykes are rightly, always the first point of contact in these cases). We have also now included a very handy information folder for our guests to reach more easily. We look forward to hopefully hosting you again in the future. Property Owner

    Everything you need is on your doorstep all the main supermarkets are close together and the beach isn't far at all. The only negative would be the heating, I never felt it come on once and at this time of year you can feel the chill. But over all an excellent property and I would definitely go back. I left a vase at the property I had just purchased it, I hope someone gets back to me about it.

    Thank you so much for your valuable feedback, we always thrive to learn from our customers experiences. Please be assured that we looked in to the issue with the heating and found that the main boiler had been switched off for the heating setting. We are unsure of how or why this happened, but we apologise to you for the matter.

  • "Two stars given because of the bed in the second bedroom."

    It is listed as a double bed but it is actually a futon and the most uncomfortable thing we have ever slept on. It was covered with a bed topper but this did not help. We did not want to give up on the holiday as we were with another couple so went and purchased a memory foam bed topper . The new bed topper was doubled over with the double quilt and single quilt on top and it was still terrible. The rest of the house was good, accept as the other reviews, still no instructions for TV's, recycling, etc. A new proper bed and some instructions for tv's etc would make this house a 5 star.

    Thank you so much for your valued feedback, we really do appreciate it and more importantly, we strive to learn from it - Because of this issue we will be replacing the bed in the second bedroom within the next 48 hours, so that all future guests, including yourselves, can enjoy the comforts of a comfortable double bed on your next visit. Although detailed instructions are provided in the e-book that Sykes send you digitally, we can appreciate the increasing demand for a simpler TV system with less remote controls - We will therefore be replacing with an extremely simple FreeView system within the next 48 hours also. I hope we have resolved your issues and we really do hope you visit our home again soon, to enjoy it's improvements. Property Owner

  • "The house was definitely comfortable enough, although I found the pull out double a little uncomfortable and no hanging space in the second double was a tad annoying."

    There was a small poo in the upstairs bathroom when we arrived. We came in the side door on arrival, dashing out for dinner as traffic had been terrible and we were late. It was only upon checking doors before bed that I discovered the front door was left unlocked-not only with all the house contents available to anyone and everyone but my laptop and other belongings-not acceptable to be honest! As others have said-it would be handy to have some tv instructions (for the benefit of others-turn all 3 remotes on and go to home button on the small one-scroll right to the tv logo for iplayer/itv hub/4 and 5 which you can watch live-you will have to sign in to your own Netflix account) and also some heating instructions. My 84 year old mother was cold, so I managed to change the boiler to heat and water and work out how to put the thermostat on manual but the only radiator working upstairs was the bathroom one-not great in the winter. It would have been good to know if I was operating the system correctly. There are not enough saucepans to cook a proper meal so bring your own if you are thinking of doing so (just one small, one medium pan in the cupboard). The chopping board had old food on it. Dining chair covers had not been washed and were quite dirty. This all sounds quite damning, but it IS actually a nice house in a great spot for exploring-just needs a little extra input from the owner (who I'm told lives abroad so that might be why the complaint about instructions for things hadn't been actioned).

    Thank you so much for your valuable feedback, it is really appreciated. We are working with the cleaning team to address the issues you reported. And will improve /provide the instructions and guides to make it easier. Hopefully we look forward to seeing you in the future. Property Owner

  • "Even though there were no reviews we decided to book this property."

    So pleased we did as what a find. Lovely house which overlooks the golf course. We would definitely book again as we had such a great holiday. If we were being critical there were a couple of minor issues. The grass had not been cut, there was some dog mess on the gravel in the back garden and the downstairs toilet could have been cleaner. The garden furniture just consisted of a small table and 2 chairs. That was fine for us as only 2 adults, but wouldn’t be enough for 5 which the house caters for. The area is great for bringing your bikes and the nearest sandy beach is at Pembrey or travel to the beautiful beaches in the Gower which took around 40 minutes. Thank you to the owners for sharing your house with us.

    Thanks for your feedback we really appreciate it, and it will certainly help us to improve. We are really glad you enjoyed your stay and look forward to you visiting again. Property Owner

The property

This detached property rests in the charming town of Llanelli in beautiful South Wales, located on the championship golf course of Machynys Peninsular Golf and Country Club.

With 180 degree views overlooking the renowned Gower Peninsular.

Set over two floors, 5 Ffordd Y Meillion is well-equipped for families looking to uncover this fine region, with the delightful Llanelli beach just two miles away.

After parking up in the driveway, pass through the picnic fence front garden into the hallway.

The lounge is wonderfully presented, furnished with two sofas arranged in front of a large Smart TV, perfect for catching up on your favourite shows after a long day.

Close by, the ground floor cloakroom is a nice addition to the layout.

Allow the designated chef to cook up a storm in the kitchen, utilising the electric oven, gas hob and Smeg fridge/freezer, plus there’s even a dishwasher so you won’t have to lift a finger when washing up!

Just off the kitchen is a handy utility room with washing machine and tumble dryer, perfect for rinsing your sandy clothes after a beach adventure.

A patio door leads out to the enclosed garden, offering a combination of a lawned and gravelled area with a seating area that is perfect for evening drinks.

Climb the stairs to reach the bedrooms, offering a king-size with en-suite shower, a double and a single, each classically decorated and hosting ample storage space.

Rounding off the interior is the family bathroom, ideal for a soothing soak after an afternoon of exploring the local area.

Llanelli is home to a collection of shops and pubs and there is even a local fish and chip shop for those evenings when you fancy a takeaway.

Get to know the area by exploring the designated paths running along the coast, perfect for walkers and cyclists, whilst children of all ages will appreciate playing on the sandy beach.

Visit the National Botanic Garden of Wales, a popular attraction boasting 400 acres of flower-rich meadows, woodlands, waterfalls and cascades, whilst those history enthusiasts can explore the ruins of Kidwelly Castle, situated 11 miles away.

For a different type of adventure, head to nearby Pembrey with its dry ski slope and motor racing circuit, or enjoy a flutter on the horses at Ffos Las.

5 Ffordd Y Meillion is a fabulous base for a family escape to Wales.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £350.
