“Tranquility with lovely views.”
Reviewed May 9, 2017 for a stay in April 2017

The location is perfect. Freshwater East is quiet and the beach is lovely. There are lots of places to visit, and the coastline is beautiful. Portclew Cottage is amazing, the décor is delightful and is spotlessly clean. It is well equipped and you want for nothing. Tina and Steve have given a lot of time to making this cottage the ideal holiday home. Thank you for the lovely welshcakes, they were very welcome on our arrival.It was nice to meet you Tina. We will certainly visit again.

“Superbly presented cottage with a wonderful panoramic outlook.”
Reviewed June 11, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

The attention to detail in this cottage with regard to decor, furnishings and equipment is second to none.
The cleanliness is outstanding even though the owner welcomes dogs.
Mobile phone reception is very unreliable in this area .
Aces is easy and parking provided.

“Lovely cottage in beautiful area”
Reviewed August 15, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Although the Welsh weather wasn't kind to us, Portclew Cottage was lovely. Very clean with all mod cons. The WiFi was fine, kitchen had everything we needed and bedrooms/bathroom were clean and comfortable. No complaints at all about the accommodation.
Freshwater East is very quiet but has a lovely beach (watch out for the steep walk back !!) and the cottage has great views over the beach in one direction and the open countryside in the other.
Be sure to check out the Stackpole Inn which is nearby for a great lunch.

We stayed at the bungalow for a week in August and, although the good weather certainly helped, this was a week to remember. The property is very well thought through, being light, airy and spacious. The views are as amazing as we had hoped for and the owners were very friendly.
The area is amazing and we don't know why it isn't packed with tourists. we will definitely be back to explore the beaches more. Our dog loved it and wants to go again next year if we are allowed.

This is a really lovely holiday house and immaculately clean. Plenty of space for us as a family of four (two children age 15 and 12) Wonderful views over Freshwater East. Outside decking area is a lovely place to sit and relax and enjoy an evening Barbeque.
