    Driftwood Cottage

    A lovely home from home holiday cottage.beautifully decorated and possibly the warmest cottage we have ever stayed in. Nice touch having the dog bowls and towels but we went well stocked with dog stuff. However due to the amazingly dry weather we didn’t really need them. Would highly recommend to book a stay.

    Great week stay in a lovely cottage

    Very clean and comfortable cottage which is well equipped for a very enjoyable stay. The owners are very helpful and will go out of their way to help. The area is lovely where it is situated could not ask for any more highly recommended

    Absolutely perfect cottage and location

    Unfortunately we had to leave early due to a family emergency but this cottage is absolutely gorgeous and has everything you need and more, the owners really have thought of everything, for humans and dogs. It is very well equipped,spotlessly clean, bight and airy. The totally secure garden was great for us as we have 2 greyhounds, we could let them out without worrying. Contact with the owners was amazing, very quick to reply and help in any way they could. Also, the location is perfect, literally a few minutes to shops etc. We really can't recommend this home from home cottage enough! Thank you so much for letting us stay. Jan & Gary.

    Fantastic stay at Burry Port

    The house was clean and welcome throughout. We appreciate the thoughtfulness of our host, Gill Swain. She thought of everything; and even left us a note on fridge that really touched our children. The beds were super comfortable and I had the best sleep I've had in a long time. The WiFi was slow but I suspect that had more to do with the location of the town. Overall, we have every intention of returning and booking another stay as soon as we can set a date. Thank you Gill.

    Super Haus in toller Lage

    Wir haben uns von Anfang an sehr wohl gefühlt. Die Lage ist toll. Direkt vor der Haustür ist ein schöner Spielplatz. Zum Meer sind es nur 5 Minuten zu Fuß. Die Strände sind grandios.
