This is a beautifully presented property and a credit to Helen and Steve for the effort they have made in creating such a delightful cottage. It is not until you stay in this cottage that you become fully aware of just how special it is and the level of appointments provided.

Second visit, I love it here, direct access to the Nature Reserve & fabulous walking routes. The cottage is immaculate, clean, has everything you could wish for, the bed is super comfy and the shower is real home comfort. Helen & Steve leave a generous welcome pack, and it seems every detail is attended to. We will be back!

A lovely restored cottage with all mod cons, very welcoming owners and a nice little welcome pack of essentials. The cottage is located within 100m of a very nice pub which does great food and 300m the other direction is another nice pub which also does great food. Across the road is a nature reserve with lots of dunes and a lake with bird hides.

A very comfortable and well equipped cottage, with friendly owners adjacent. We enjoyed visits to the Brecons and the Gower from here. Lots of bird life and rabbits to watch from the cottage.

Reviewed by Marie, 29th April 2017

This property definitely deserves the 5 star rating. The owners had made sure everything was available and the welcome pack was thoughtful. Everything was spotless with cleaning products available to give a mid week clean to the property. We would certainly consider staying in the property again.
