  • "We were met with a friendly welcome from the owners and shown into our spotlessly clean, warm and thoughtfully equipped property."

    The cottage has a large secure grass area with a lovely view across fields. The grounds are beautiful with a peaceful walk to the lake through the various trees and shrubs. The main lawns are very well maintained and to top it off having a dip in the warm pool every evening was a welcome bonus. We had a perfect and relaxing holiday here and the owners have gone above and beyond to make it that way.

    central to both Pembrokeshire and Carmarthenshire.The owners were very friendly and welcoming. The cottage has everything you need. Wi-fi a bit hit and miss. Superb grounds surrounding the cottages and very good for dogs. Would definitely recommend this cottage for visitors for South Wales.

    Thank you for your very kind comments Bridget. We are happy to hear you enjoyed your stay. We have now installed a new 4g base system for the WiFi which gives us a greater reliability and offers each cottage it's own secure access point. We hope to welcome you back again soon. Property Owner

    The communication was great and the Owner and his family were very friendly and helpful. The location is stunning and the swimming pool was a great bonus and we used it every day! The cottage was very well equipped and comfortable and we sat outside every evening admiring the views. The location was very central for various trips out and several local pubs, The Plash and The Castle Inn at Llansteffan in particular, were great places to eat. We will go back!!

    Owners, who are so friendly, are there and help at a drop of a hat while also leaving you to enjoy your stay. The pool was amazing, swimming while overlooking stunning landscape while watching the sun set are memories i will hold for a lifetime. The cottage was almost perfect, only issue was wobbly dining chairs. We had a wonderful holiday and none of us wanted to leave. Thank you!

  • "The Cottage and associated site facilities were very good, and the proprietors were very welcoming and very helpful."

    The cottage was very well equipped and very clean, there was nothing that we did not have. We throughly enjoyed our stay on the site and also the beauty and interest of the surrounding area. One point - when describing the cottage as "Sleeps 4" it should be mentioned that the 2 x Twin Beds in Sandpiper Cottage are only 2ft 6ins wide beds- and as such really only comfortable for young children. In the overall description of the location - the 2 x Pubs in the Village have now both shut - the nearest Pub/Restaurant is now around 4 miles away.

    Hi John Thank you for your comments, we are really happy to hear you enjoyed your stay here. In regards to the beds in the twin room we will ask Sykes to make a note of this in their description, we have also asked them to change the information regarding the pubs in the village. There is a Social Club in the village and the 'Pen y Bont' pub is 2.3miles away which also serves food. We hope to welcome you back in the future. Property Owner

    The grounds were great for walking around with our dogs. Bonus is the swimming pool and due to Covid regulations we had slots allocated for sole use which we loved. Great location and we will definitely return.

  • "We stayed in Sandpiper cottage from Saturday 15th."

    May We were met by Rob as we pulled into the carpark. He immediately made us feel welcome. We were very impressed by the strict Covid regulations even a hand sanitizer dispenser on the door of the cottage. The cottage was very comfortable, spotlessly clean and very well equipped. The views from the back of the cottage were stunning for city dwellers like us. We were looking forward to seeing the night sky, as there is no light pollution but the clouds prevented a clear view. Wi-Fi great managed to attend a few Zoom meetings. What made the break so good is I was able to swim every day in a heated pool we were able to book a slot each day. The pool is sanitized between slots. We felt very safe. I would highly recommend the cottages for families and couples plus they are pet friendly. We look forward to returning. Anne and Pat.

  • "From the Sykes description and photographs of Sandpiper Cottage we concluded that the accommodation was small with limited space in the bedrooms."

    This was not a problem for us and whilst the cottage was "compact" it was very cosy and comfortable. We had some cold weather but the cottage was always warm when we returned. From our point of view a shower cubicle would have been better but we were fully aware of the shower over bath and it posed no problems. Hosts were very welcoming, helpful and on hand if there were any problems but never intrusive.
