“Simply stunning”
Reviewed April 11, 2016 for a stay in April 2016

We spent a very enjoyable weekend in the main house. In writing this review I am so pleased to rate it as excellent. The house and its surroundings are just perfect, it really is as beautiful as it looks in the pictures. You will find lots of everyday essentials included when renting the property, the garden and views are lovely and the accommodation provides everything you could need for all ages. This house really felt like a home, it is set in the centre of a lovely village with pub, playground and beach all within walking distance.

“Amazing location, Beautiful property, Helpful hosts!”
Reviewed March 9, 2016 for a stay in March 2016

17 of us stayed at this lovely accommodation for my sisters hen do. What a lovely place to stay! This house had everything that you would need, plenty of space and lovely character. Don't be put off by it being called a 'cottage'!!

I for one would love to return for a slightly more relaxed weekend with less people!!

Would 100% recommend!

“Fabulous Group Holiday Home”
Reviewed February 7, 2016 for a stay in December 2015

I booked Pentre Bach in December for a get away with friends to celebrate my fiance's 30th birthday, and I cannot begin to describe how perfect it was!

The house is well appointed and beautiful, with more than enough space and seating for a larger group than us, as well as lovely thoughtful touches left by the owners which made our stay so wonderful.

Couldn't recommend it enough!

Thank you very much for your kind comments. We're so glad you enjoyed your stay at Pentre Bach and did manage to get out and explore the local area despite the largely wet weather.
We'll take on board some of your suggestions but we do feel that the TV is big enough for holiday accommodation and wouldn't want the TV to dominate the lounge too much. We did renew at least two pillows in each bedroom this year but avoided feather pillows because of the number of guests who ask that we don't provide feather pillows and duvets. Perhaps we should invest in a few to keep on standby! We'll certainly check out the squeaky headboard!

“Can't recommend highly enough”
Reviewed July 15, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We stayed at Pentre Bach House for my sisters 40th birthday our party was 10 adults and 4 children. We were all blown away by how beautiful the house and grounds were. The rooms were all great and beds really comfy! Living room and dining room perfect for our party and my favourite has to be the kitchen which is stunning and spotless and so well stocked with equipment! Better than my kitchen at home. Mike and Wilma were fantastic replying to emails really quickly and being extremely accommodating to us around check in and out days and times.
We were a short walk to the beach and loved taking in all of the amazing knitted characters along the way that the local crochet club had created - 2 minute walk from the local shop and pub - couldn't ask for more!
We have all said that we will return and would recommend this place to anyone looking for a family or group getaway.

“Best Family holiday EVER!”
Reviewed February 26, 2015 for a stay in February 2015

From the moment we contacted Mike and Wilma with a view to booking Pentre Bach they couldn't have been more helpful and they were there to greet us with an extremely warm welcome when we arrived. They showed us round the property and were on hand if we had had any issues. The house was beyond our expectations, it is beautiful, comfortable and was plenty big enough for our party of 14. We were there for my 50th birthday and to spend some rare quality time together with extended family. My favourite rooms were the bedrooms on the first floor with the sea views - I could lie in bed and watch the waves for hours. It's a fab base from which to explore the gorgeous surrounding countryside and coastline. The local village has a friendly pub, a small shop and a train stop and wherever we went for our days out it was lovely to return to Pentre Bach, a roaring log fire and a glass of wine. I would love to return in the summer as I expect it would be a completely different holiday with beaches and bar-b-ques. Hopefully it won't be too long before we return.
