This cottage is so beautiful and quiet, the garden is lovely and the location is superb. We have stayed here before and chose to celebrate our 30th Wedding Anniversary with our family in this lovely cottage, and we couldn't have chosen a better place! The Country Park in Pembrey is a great place to explore and the beach is so big and a great place for dog walking. We love this cottage and can't wait to come back again in October!

Mrs Nicholls
March 2015
The location was beautiful, with wonderful views of the sea. The cottage itself was just perfect - had a fabulous kitchen which made cooking a pleasure and the log fire in the huge but still cosy lounge. The main bathroom upstairs was great, with a spa bath and rainfall shower. Overall we were blown away, from the young children who came to visit, to the grand parents, everyone thought it was wonderful. A massive thank you to the smashing owner too, always a moment away if you had any questions or needs, and a good giggle too.
Mrs Wilson

The location was just what we wanted, secluded and very private. The amazing hot tub was an added bonus which we paid extra for - well worth it. The owner met us on arrival and was very friendly and couldn't do enough. Had a lovely relaxing time.

A beautiful cottage, isolated and idyllic. Breathtaking views and a wonderful garden surrounding it. To have the bonus of the hot tub makes it even more special. The owner was pleasant and helpful yet not intrusive. Fantastic holiday, we will hopefully go back one day.

This is our second visit. The cottage is just perfect, the hot tub is wonderful, a very peaceful location overlooking the estuary. We love the country park as we enjoy skiing, cycling and walks along the beach. We will be back again but looks like it will have to be next year as the rest of 2014 is fully booked. That says it all really, doesn't it?

The cottage was like home from home, spacious, not overlooked and had fantastic views. Plenty of pasture fields to walk, without having to go out in the car. The hot tub was well worth the extra.
Mrs May
November 2013
It was a beautiful and comfortable cottage with fantastic sea views. The enclosed garden was excellent for children and dogs. The cottage was set in a very private location, and there was ample parking space. The owner was very helpful and friendly. Pembrey Country Park was about 2 miles away. Set among woods and sand dunes it had access to lovely sandy beaches, and also offered a number of outdoor activities including cycle hire and a dry ski slope.

The cottage was to the highest standard inside and out. It is the perfect base to explore South Wales then come back to complete piece and quiet. The owner was friendly and helpful. My children have been begging me to rebook for next year since we got in the car to come home which is the best recommendation you could give it.
Mrs Brightley
July 2012
Fabulous views, exceptionally peaceful. Helpful owner. Close to places we wanted to visit. Superbly fitted out with every home comfort, including lots of logs for the wood-burner.
Mrs Oakley
July 2012
We absolutely loved this cottage, the garden was amazing and the owner was more than helpful - there if we needed him but not intrusive, nothing was too much trouble for him. We wanted a BBQ and the gas was low within the hour we had a refill and our BBQ was on the way! Can't say enough about this wonderful property, we also really enjoyed the hot tub and lovely views. We will be returning.
Mrs Salt

May 2015
Well where do I start. We drove up the road to amazing views onto the secluded little cottage. On arrival we were greeted by Kevin who made us feel at home. The cottage is stunning in every way, the kitchen is a dream with every gadget you could think of, enough crockery and cutlery to feed the village. Every bit of the cottage was spotless with very authentic detail. Oh and the log fire ... simply stunning at night, even fresh logs delivered daily. Surrounding wow, what a view be it either sitting in the garden or chilling in the hot tub its amazing, even the pigs sheep and horses put a smile on your face each morning. All in all best place we have ever stayed and would love to return! Infact didnt want to leave!
Mr Francis

the cottage could not be better, fantastic kitchen with everything you could need, luxurious bathrooms and with the most beautiful views out over the gower peninsular . The owner was really helpful without being intrusive, and like all the people we met in the area really friendly, we will be back.
June 2012
Hot tub has fabulous views across the Estuary to the Gower, and made this a special holiday, despite some bad weather! Spotlessly clean cottage. Very large well equipped kitchen. Bathrooms lovely. The garden is really beautiful and well maintained. Would be a great cottage for a romantic break, but equally the neighbouring pigs and ponies and great beaches will appeal to families with young children. Our teens were happy as there was lots of space. We also took 2 dogs who had the best holiday ever.
Mrs Hatcher
December 2011
A lovely warm house, very well equipped. Logs for the wood burner were plentiful and the owner was very helpful. Absolutely amazing position with wonderful views. We would love to go again in the spring, as there is so much to do in the area.

Mr Morgan
February 2012
We loved the cottage which was tastefully furnished and very comfortable. We particularly liked the large kitchen which had a superb range of equipment and a large table we could all sit around. There are fantastic views over the estuary and out to sea which unfortunately were obscured for much of our stay as the weather was not good! The owners are extremely helpful and live close at hand so can deal with any problems promptly. We can't wait to go back.
Mrs Roberts
November 2011
The cottage was furnished and all the equipment was to a very high standard. We liked the solitude offered by the cottage with breathtaking views. The country park which is on the doorstep offers amazing beaches, dry ski slope, golf and horse-riding. For a couple wanting a romantic break or a family looking for a holiday with lots of activities, this house and location are absolutely perfect and we would not hesitate in recommending it. The owners left a welcome basket full of goodies and provided a warm and friendly welcome.

Wow, loved staying in this cottage! The location was simply stunning, stuck in the middle of the Welsh countryside with amazing views of the Bristol Channel and the River Loughor. The cottage itself felt very homely and was extremely well resourced and to finish it all off there was the hot tub :)

This place and area is stunning the location, peace and tranquility, views, stunning cottage and a complete home from home make it! Loved by the dogs and Loved by us. Thanks Kevin for allowing us the pleasure.

We had a fantastic week at this wonderful secluded cottage with amazing views over the estuary, its very well equipped with everything you need and more. We particularly liked the hot tub, roasting marshmallows on the fire and playing in the huge garden with our children! It has very spacious bedrooms and a lovely bathroom. This has been one of our best holidays and we would throughly recommend it, we hope to return again.
March 2014

Penllwyn Cottage was first class accommodation. It was extremely comfortable and had a very homely feel. The owners were on hand to answer any queries. We would highly recommend the cottage to anyone and hope to return in the not too distant future.
August 2016
The cottage location is perfect. The views are amazing even while sat in the hot tub! The write up should advise that while it is a Grade II listed cottage this comes with its problems. The kitchen is large but there is no space for groceries as all the cupboards are too full, plus this room is the dampest. The sofas are as tired as the kitchen and down stairs loo. Logs for the fire were not provided and it was chilly in an evening. The fridge doesn't seem to work very well, not very cold. Usually when we stay in cottages there is a welcome tray or at least a bottle of milk, plus kitchen cloths, hand wash, washing liquid.etc but there was nothing here. The bathroom upstairs is lovely, very clean & modern and the bedrooms are comfy. The windows are low so unless you sit on the floor you can not see the stunning views from upstairs. On arrival we were disappointed with the smell and cleanliness. We had to clean the fridge freezer out of old food and sour cream. The kitchen hasn't got anything decent to cook on everything is chard or scratched, or tainted with the damp. It would have been nice to return to the cottage as it has a wonderful aspect but the interior needs a make over.

Myself, my husband, our 4 year old son and our dog stayed here for Christmas week and were delighted with the cottage and its secluded location with amazing views (weather permitting!). The owners had decorated the cottage with christmas decorations very tastefully and there was a lovely real christmas tree too :) Aside from a few niggles with ceiling leaks in kitchen and porch area during strong winds and rain we couldn't fault the cottage for comfort, space and style. The kitchen is very impressive and I loved the new range cooker so much I would've smuggled it home in our car if I thought it would fit lol! ;) The only improvement would be a bigger fridge freezer. The bedrooms are very spacious with lots of storage however there was no hair dryer provided so had to improvise with the little electric fan heater instead. Our son loved having his own ensuite shower room but wasn't impressed with sharing his room with 'the strange man in the corner" which well & truly spooked me out for the rest of our stay lol! If i was to be really picky, the only room which could do with renovating slightly is the downstairs shower room as it doesn't quite compare to the other very stylish bathrooms. Our dog loved Pembrey beach splashing in the sea and chasing the birds :) in fact it's probably the best holiday he's ever had! He had a great time playing footie in the garden too, although it might be worth noting that the fencing here is only post and rail so any mischievous doggies or kids could still escape. It might also be worth mentioning that due to its position on top of a very long, steep mountain that the local pubs/restaurant are not really walkable unless you are super fit and don't have any young kids in tow. We drove to the Ashburnham Hotel for lunch one day but they had to close due to an electrical fault so we tried the pub next door which was very dated and disappointing. I don't think there are any decent places to eat/drink in Pembrey at all, according to the cottage literature the nearest place is in Llanelli. Overall a fab holiday in a fab cottage with a FAB hot tub! On a clear night, star gazing in the hot tub is an absolute must! Just a shame the local village isn't a bit more appealing to make it the perfect holiday destination.
