“Idyllic for dog glad she let us stay with her!”
Reviewed April 25, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

Long journey all forgotten when we arrived at Applecroft - fabulous facilities , view to die for , spotless and warm welcome from Menna and Roger ! Doggy heaven altho being lambing time an extendable lead needed for excited spaniel . Village shop almost next door in case we wanted to cook but with so many local lovely pubs no need and Brittannia Arms 10 min stroll away the best of all of them .the locals were amazingly friendly and welcoming too
Hill beach wood and forest walks all great but of course the almost empty sandy beaches -3 miles long the most exciting for the dog ! 100pc recommendation as a a holiday cottage and if you don't like dogs it's cleaned so thoroughly one would need know they were allowed ( apart from a welcome water bowl in the porch !!)

A wonderful place to relax in such warmth and comfort. The panoramic view from the sofa offered fabulous views across the estuary from Llanelli to Pendine. So many walking adventures to be found, of which our dogs had a thoroughly enjoyable time discovering!

It would take pages to list all the things we have loved about Llanmadoc. Never before have we experienced such peaceful, unspoiled and natural beauty. Each time we left the house on foot, we discovered fresh trails to explore; over hills, through beautiful woods, along coastal paths, and along the endless, uninhabited stretches of local beaches. After each walk, we could then return to "Applecroft"; a bungalow which suited our needs in every way. Well equipped, spotlessly clean, quiet location, and views over the sea and estuary which leave you almost speechless. Our pleasure was enhanced by the company of our little dog, Rosie. Like us, she was made welcome by the owners and all the local people she met; she now has claimed her own spot under a table in the public bar of the Britannia Inn. For every mile we walked, she ran three in this very "dog friendly" environment.
Thank you Applecroft, we have just had our best holiday - ever.

“No way dog friendly”

Would agree with comments on the property and location but left early as we felt uncomfortable due to owners attitude towards our dogs . We were asked NOT to let them bark, when one barked for his ball in the garden,comments were heard from the owner across the hegde. The rear garden is secure but no barrier between front and back. The front garden has a low wall easily jumped, only restraining a small dog. We holiday twice yearly with the dogs in cottages, never had this attitude before. Lovely friendly area for dogs but find another cottage as this spoilt our holiday because we were unable to relax.

Management Response

Now I know why you left on Friday evening instead of Saturday morning, and there I was thinking you left early to avoid the Saturday traffic!
I am so sorry that you feel that Applecroft is not dog friendly. We have had a number of repeat bookings for next year from dog owners who think otherwise.
It was most unfortunate that I had to ask you to keep your dog quiet, a first for us, but we have our neighbours to consider, who made comments about the constant daily barking and yelping of one of your dogs.
The garden is fully secure, with a stone wall to the front. Since 2013, we have had 37 dogs of all breeds, large and small stay with us and we've never had any issues with security.
We are pleased that you liked the surrounding area and Applecroft itself. Llanmadog is a nice holiday destination to visit with or without a dog.
I hope you will decide to return to this area some other day.

My husband, myself and two friends spent a week at Applecroft and loved every minute. The property has everything you need and more. Big comfy sofa's in a lounge with the best views ever! Large TV, CD, radio, super easy heating system, big kitchen with big table for wine and meals in the evening. And the beds!! Oh my goodness, so comfortable. A garden with big table and chairs looking out over the estuary. And total privacy. Don't think about it - just book it!

“Blissful relaxation in a lovely cottage, with friendly owners in the Gower”
Reviewed December 9, 2013 for a stay in December 2013

people found this review helpful

We stayed for a short break right at the end of Nov/beginning of Dec but could have stayed for so much longer. The cottage is immaculate, beautifully furnished and kitted out with all the necessities as well as some of the things you may have forgotten. What a lovely surprise to open the door and find all that plus a Christmas tree and a welcome pack to get us started. And I echo the previous comments too - Menna's barra brith is gorgeous! Llanmadoc is a quiet but very friendly place and the locals are very warm and welcoming. The walk to the nearest beach affords you some fantastic views but save some energy for the uphill walk back to the cottage! All in all, we had a lovely long weekend away and won't return to the Gower without first booking Applecroft. Thank you Menna and Roger, keep doing what you're doing!

Our experience of Apple Croft can be summed up in one word - SUPERB.
The recently renovated bungalow/cottage is tastefully decorated in a modern style to a high standard throughout, with quality furniture and fittings, a lovely modern kitchen and also a nice patio area with table and chairs, offering stunning views of Whiteford Sands and the area from the garden and living room. The house was spotlessly clean, with everything you might require to enjoy your stay being supplied, with some thoughtful touches. Free, fast Wi-Fi was included (almost a necessity these days). We received a warm welcome from Menna, including the welcome pack as detailed in one of the other reviews.
Whiteford Sands is an approximate 20 minute walk away, with Broughton Bay a few minutes longer. The coastal path also offers great walks through Whiteford Nature Reserve. The spectacular Rhossili beach and coastal path is a short drive away, as is the beautiful Bloxwich Bay and Three Cliffs Bay.
Llanmadoc is a small village with one shop/post office/café and one excellent pub (The Britannia), but is perfectly located for trips to other areas of The Gower.
I can't recommend Apple Croft enough, and hope to visit again.
