  • "First impressions of cottage were very good."

    Looked clean and nicely presented. it is as it says in the ad. The cottage is well placed for local Spar, pubs and wine bars and 10 min walk to estuary and Parrog, whilst Newport Sands is a 35 min walk (with dog) with a welcome coffee bar at end of walk. Downstairs remains cool on hot days so is a nice place to chill. From the main bedroom you can just see the sea between the houses but still benefit from the lovely red sunsets. Also, thank you, owners, for the welcome pack of bread, butter, cakes and biscuits, but make sure your instruction/welcome folder is on table too. Outside the patio area is delightful with cottage-style wild planted borders. Great for the cooling down evening drinks. However, a few of disappointments. When unpacking food into fridge/freezer we found the the freezer door was slightly ajar and the inside completely frosted over. We did what we could to resolve but found that the freezer door does not shut properly so be aware to make certain it is shut (however, it still freezes over anyway). The crockery and cutlery all needed to be cleaned before use, along with the drawers and cutlery tray. Not the owners fault but probably a build up of less than diligent clients before. We left it all cleaner than we found it. Oh, and for those leaving each week. Don’t forget to empty the Dyson vacuum cleaner when it is full. Helpful things: Local amenities: mentioned above - all pubs are dog friendly except Royal Oak. We would recommend both the Castle Inn and Golden Lion for after walk lunches and outdoor areas for evening meals. Recycling: Glass bottles/jars. Nothing at cottage. Walk to Long Street at end of your stay to dispose. Dog stuff: if your dog(s) are not business-like on patio setting there is a walk up the lane . Please pick up your dog’s mess. Quite a few people don’t, as evidenced, so set an example, be responsible!! Also, the back gate has a large gap underneath it which both small and medium size dogs will get under. We used one of our body-boards across the gap to ensure a commando crawl was not deployed. Overall, we loved the cottage and setting. We hope you do to. Thank you.

  • "Very comfortable cottage in a great location with all facilities on hand in the property."

    Good range of local info provided and a welcome pack of treats too! We really enjoyed this beautiful part of the coastline and had a really restful week.

  • "Lovely small cottage in a great location, which was surprisingly quiet, with fantastic walks to the beach etc."

    from the door. 2 small parking areas opposite the cottage, which was a bonus. Nice small bbq patio area for the evening accessed by steep steps, surrounded by some nicely planted borders. Beds were really comfortable, the double room a nice size with shower room/toilet & clothes storage, the triple bunk room small but fine. The downstairs shower was a bonus for beach days with children. We took towels for the beach, but wish we had taken more as there were not many towels for a whole week, hence the comment below on the drying facilities, towels take an age to dry on an airer even in nice weather. There were plenty of cleaning products, which was helpful, as well as a lovely welcome pack, which was much appreciated. The fridge freezer was a good size and there were plenty of kitchen utensils, crockery, pans, etc etc. There is a washing machine, but no outside line, just a clothes airer, which isn't really adequate for drying a full load. There is no dishwasher, though when we booked this was advertised as being one of the facilities. Sykes were kind enough to give us a refund on part of the rental to compensate for this, so hopefully the advert is now correct. The main concern while there was the inadequate waste facilities. For limited recycling it was a walk into the town car park area (not ideal on holiday), for the rest of the waste it was a small bin by the parking area, not really enough for holiday waste for a week for 5 when eating and drinking in. Maybe some recycling boxes near the bin would help. We all had a great week at this cottage and would recommend a visit.

  • "This is a beautiful holiday cottage/home and the owners obviously care about their property, and about your stay there."

    Well decorated, comfortable beds, plenty room to unpack / store your clothes. Everything you could ask for in the kitchen, including a washing machine if needed, however note there is no dishwasher at the premises. Excellent wi-fi if needed. Gorgeous outdoor area, a sun trap with plenty of room, outdoor seating, garden table with parasol, plus a BBQ. External tap for rinsing wet suits/sandy shoes. Easy walk to the shop, pubs, restaurants (book in advance, pubs were booked up a week in advance in the summer). Lovely, relaxed, well presented place. We would love to return.

  • "Hi - this is the third time we've stayed at this property."

    We think it is lovely and well presented with all the facilities we need on the whole. Just one note on rubbish/recycling: we put out the food caddy on Monday evening as instructed but this was not collected on the Tuesday, In addition the welcome folder told us to take all recycling to the Newport Long Street car park, but on arrival there only were collection bins for cans, paper, glass and plastic bottes which meant we had to take all cardboard and non-bottle plastics (which made up the majority of our recycling) back to the property with us and put it in the outside black bins. After our two week stay with no collecting/emptying, those two bins were overflowing and one split completely down the side. Finally, a nice touch other rental companies offer is to make sure that there is a welcome pint of milk/loaf of bread/bottle of wine/cake in the property on arrival. This is an inexpensive sweetener that makes a real difference, so it was a little disappointing to arrive to nothing, especially having spend well over £2 thousand pounds for our stay!

    The owner extends her apologies for the issues you had with rubbish/recycling at Annwylfan during your stay. Additional bins for any future overflow of rubbish/recycling have now been provided. Welcome packs for guests are something the owner is considering for the future. Property Owner

  • "We really enjoyed our stay at Annwylfan, the cottage is charming & comfortable ."

    We loved how close it is to the beach, mountain, shops & pubs. The garden is lovely too with great views & has the sun all day. It would have been perfect if there had been a TV & DVD player (for the rainy days!) & perhaps a small welcome pack with a couple of teabags & basic condiments would have been a nice touch.
