  • "We had a very relaxing stay."

    Our only point for improvement would be for a simple roof over the hot tub. It did rain and we were unable to use it. However, a simple roof would have meant we could still have used the hot tub. This would have made our stay perfect.

  • "The property is spotlessly clean, in a perfect location."

    The views from the Shepherds hut is very nice. We were very lucky to have lovely sunny weather, and visited many beaches near by, Pendine was particularly lovely, dog friendly with a pub. It was lovely sitting in the evening around the firpit with as much wood as you need. Downsides: Could do with a mini fridge inside the shepherds hut, as the main one is in a outside shed along with the washing machine. More storage in the bathroom to store toiletries. Their own dogs roam free, leaving unwanted packages around the property,as this is not fenced in, often appearing, which put us a bit on edge as our dog can be grumpy with others. More contact from the hosts, who did answer questions via text.But would have been nice to have met them early on. In other holiday let's, the hot tub was checked daily, on this occasion it wasn't checked at all.. Overall we did have a lovely time, but would have been 5 star if the above had been addressed, saying that,we would definitely stay again.

  • "Absolutely loved The Cwtch."

    It was peaceful and relaxing, the views are stunning. I would recommend to anyone who asked! Penny is an amazing host, we didn't arrive till 9.30pm, which I made her aware of, penny left the lights on for us. And was only phone call away if we needed any assistance. The direction breakdown on the website is spot on! Follow them when your arriving. The welcome pack was lovely the malteasers and Welsh cakes went down well. We loved the fact there was a full sized fridge freezer in the shed, this meant that we was able to cook our own food. There is lack of cooking facilities, however we was aware of this and brought our portable bbq & coals. There is a a portable induction hob and pans which is really good! Penny also recommended a lovely walk for us to do, and i am so glad she did! The cwtch is in an amazing location (maximum 1hr to coastal paths & beaches) , we went to Pendine, tenby, manorbeir(coastal path) and Bosherston- lily ponds, then the costal path to barafundle beach then Stackpole quay. (Maybe a things to do book would be good for those who don't know the area?) The things that we feel could be improved are: -The bed! It is so noisy, every time you turn over it wakes you up because its so squeaky. -There was no outdoor garbage bin (like what the other properties have) we had to leave bin bags in the shed. We didn't like the idea of this. - A mini fridge in the cabin would've been nice, so you could wake up and make a coffee without running to the shed (especially if it's raining). -Lack of storage in the bathroom, no where to put your toiletries. ** The main thing for us which put us off a little bit was that the owners dogs roam the property  (which is lovely for them) however if you are scared of dogs or have a protective dog (like we do, she becomes reactive if a dog comes up to her unexpectedly) then maybe just be aware of this. Once we knew that there was dogs roaming around we were more cautious, although it put us on edge a little.** All that being said thank you for such an amazing holiday! Just what we needed after working the hectic pandemic, it allowed us to recharge our batteries, we didn't want to leave.

    The Cwtch is set in lovely grounds and your not overlooked. It has everything you need and more. A welcome pack with minstrels, Welsh cakes and a bottle of red even a bottle of milk and some butter. The bed was noisy as per a previous review but I moved it away from the skirting board and it was lovely.

  • "Location good, property clean, hot tub buzzes all night to keep temperature so had to switch off at mains, dogs roaming free so kept leaving 'parcels' for us."

    I was picking it up along with our own dog but it was happening 2 or 3 times a day so stopped picking it up unless it was our dog! Bed was atrocious, noisy/squeaky/uncomfortable/thin lumpy mattress. Would not stay there again due to these issues.

    All that could have been changed was that a BBQ would have been nice due to the lack of cooking facilities and also sun loungers for outside to put your feet up and relax, apart from that couldnt fault a thing was an amazing week away and would highly recommend.

    The property stands on its own in stunning surrounds. All mod cons are available at the Cwtch with hot water and a lovely shower and a separate area with a large fridge/freezer and washing machine. Another nice touch from them was a welcome pack on your arrival. The owners Penny and Gareth are fantastic hosts and are always available should you need them. We would definitely recommend this place and would book to go again.

    I really enjoyed the peace and quiet and my time spent relaxing in the hot tub after being out walking and running. Loved the fire pit too, it was a great touch!

  • "We were met by our host shortly after arrival,."

    Penny was very welcoming and said to call or go to their house on site if there are any issues. The Cwtch is tastefully decorated, with good design features such as the wooden pegs that run around two of the inside walls - excellent for hanging coats,.bags etc. There is plenty of hot water, both to the hut and the outside kitchen, which is a great idea! Seeing as the Cwtch is on a shared site with other holiday let's, I found it to be very peaceful. After a few hours at one of the seaside resorts, I just wanted to return to the peace and tranquility of the Cwtch, and enjoy the views from the hot tub. It really is a special place!
