  • "This was our second stay at Ailfryn ( we had a week there in June last year) and it was great to see how much the property had been improved from last year, a huge credit to the owners."

    The kitchen refurbishment is brilliant and has totally transformed the downstairs and the new downstairs shower/ toilet was also a very welcome addition. It is also worth mentioning that we thought the general kitchen facilities were extremely comprehensive and without doubt the best we have ever experienced in over 25 years staying at cottages in West Wales. It was also a very nice touch to find a bottle of wine on our arrival - that was really appreciated. There were no negative comments except that the upstairs bathroom shower ( whilst a very welcome addition) suffered from very poor water pressure which meant it was effectively unusable.This was no fault of the owners of course but is worth mentioning to pass on to the owners. All in all, a superb property and one which is fully deserving of 5 stars ( out of 5)!

  • "A lovely property within 10 mins walk of the local pubs and shops."

    Excellent standard of accomodation. Only criticism is despite having new bathroom and shower over the bath upstairs the water pressure means it cannot be used as a shower. This is minor inconvenience as the downstairs shower is excellent. Woukd definately stay again.

  • "Very spacious well equipped cottage."

    Lovely enclosed garden with lots of wildlife. Comfy and well located. Fabulous views short walk to the Parrog and centre of village. Enjoyed so much we have booked a further week later in year.

  • "We really enjoyed our stay in this lovely cottage."

    Although located on a main road this wasn't a problem and not something we were aware of most of the time. We all slept well. The new kitchen and bathroom were fabulous. The views from the cottage are amazing. We had a sunny week in a beautiful area of the world. Would highly recommend to stay. We are already thinking of booking in the future.

  • "The cottage is in a super position and has a lot of great features."

    However it is in a pretty tired condition. The kitchen needs refurbishing. The shower is very small for such a large property and more of a drizzle. The upstairs toilet takes a very long time to refill. Toilet cleaning products would be helpful. The sink plug upstairs got stuck. The listings stated that a basket of logs would be provided but they weren’t. None of this prevented us from enjoying our stay in Newport, which is a delightful area.

    No significant problems and pretty good weather. Took us a while to sort out the internet, but we got there.

  • "On arrival neither of the showers were working properly - in fact the one in the bathroom didn't work at all."

    Even after the plumber had called and tried to fix the problems the showers were not satisfactory. The overall cleanliness was well below par. The oven was dirty, there were stains on the stair carpet and on the sofas in the sitting room. The windows and window sills were marked with deposits from flys. One of the blinds in the bedroom on the right at the top of the stairs was totally inadequate and let in the light from the garden next door. The duvets were summer weight and there were no extra blankets available. Would appreciate larger (and pale coloured) bath towels. However, having said all that Ailfryn is a lovely house in a wonderful position with views across the estuary that one would never get tired of looking at. Both the town and the beech are in walking distance even for those of us of a 'certain age'. Ailfryn is in desperate need of some refurbishment and TLC. Nice garden again in need of some tlc. It appeared to be dog proof as neither of ours managed to get out despite one of them being an escape artist! Plenty of parking - tricky exit.

  • "The freezer in the garage was completely frozen up so I had to spend the first day of our holiday defrosting it."

    The cleaners apparently said they could not do it in one day but I managed it. It clearly had not been defrosted for some considerable time. A new fridge/freezer was scheduled to arrive - when asked if we wanted it we said very clearly that we did not want it during our stay. It arrived unannounced on the Friday afternoon when we were in the middle of the funeral of a dear friend - online of course. Could not have been worse timing - with no warning.

  • "Lovely views in a brilliant location but for what we paid we were very disappointed in the accomodation."

    The downstairs bathroom wasn't nice, the kitchen units were not in good condition and the fridge was leaking. Generally it felt tired. Additionally exiting the property in a car is perilous with better visibility required, even cutting back the hedge would help.

    The owners are planning an overhaul of the property during the winter months. We had not been made aware at the time that the fridge was leaking. This has since been rectified (blocked drainage hole) and a new fridge has been delivered. Property Owner

  • "Ailfryn was one of the best cottages we have ever stated in with regard to additional equipment provided- children’s toys, kitchen utensils and crockery, drying rack etc."

    Very well located for the village and beaches. I left a message in the house for the caretakers / cleaners highlighting a few problems which hopefully can be resolved prior to the next visitors arriving. The bathroom light did not have a pull cord, the DVD player did not work and the fittings for the cutlery drawer and under oven cupboard were loose. In general, the kitchen needs some renovation. We would love to stay again in the future and we had a great family holiday.

  • "Ailfryn is in an excellent location, but the property needs some TLC."

    There are signs of damp & it’s generally tired & needs upgrading. It definitely needs comfortable garden furniture,& the upstairs over bath shower needs a shower screen/curtain to be usable. The garden is not dog friendly. The fence at the end of the garden is around 50cm high, so easily jumpable for an active larger dog ( particularly when there are wild rabbits in the neighbours’ garden!). The freezer of the fridge freezer in the house wasn’t in use, so we had to use the freezer in the garage which was inconvenient. With a little thought & investment Ailfryn could be really special. Newport is a lovely place & I’d definitely recommend visiting.

  • "There were some light bulbs not working in the dining room and kitchen, so this should be checked before every new tenant goes in!"

    Other than that, everything else was perfect and the town and area were wonderful!

  • "Only criticism is the confusion about rubbish and recycling."

    The instructions said to leave glass in a box in garage (there wasn't one anywhere) and to leave rubbish in black bags (the bags were white opaque) and not clear where to put cardboard and cans . Other than that we had a great time, the property was really good.
