“Cosy Christmas Retreat”

person found this review helpful

Stayed here Christmas week. The cottage was warm and cosy and beautifully decorated. Plenty of room and equipment for a big family dinner. Enclosed garden which was great for our dog. Outside toilet came in handy for our elderly visitors, as the stairs were a bit tricky for them. Lovely walks from the doorstep and a great vintage clothes shop round the corner! Lots of lovely pubs and beaches a short drive away.

“A really nice place”
Reviewed December 5, 2017 for a stay in November 2017

It is a really nice Cottage. We stayed there for more than 3 weeks, and everything was fine. A lot of space, big kitchen, garden, and lot more.
Everything was clean and comfortable.

“Christmas holiday.”
Reviewed January 11, 2017 for a stay in December 2016

It was a lovely Christmas holiday with grandparents, parents and children. Everything was there and we felt most welcome. The children (5 and 7) enjoyed the playground which was just round the corner and we all liked going to Kenfig Nature Reserve and to Rest Bay at Porthcawl.

“Brilliant place to stay!”
Reviewed September 11, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

My husband and I and our two teenage children thoroughly enjoyed our two weeks in Miners Cottage. The booking process was very straightforward and communications from the owners were excellent. The cottage was amazingly well-equipped, very clean and well-presented. The location is brilliant: very close to shops and amenities and to the M4, whilst at the same time being in a quiet setting. It has a lovely garden and the front windows overlook countryside. amazing to be able to see the sea and watch the beautiful sunsets over it. One of our essential requirements for a happy holiday was good, free wifi and this was provided with no problems at all. There is lots to do in the Bridgend area and Cardiff, Swansea and the Gower are quickly and easily reached via the M4 or local roads if you prefer a scenic route. We have already booked our holiday here for next year! Thank you!

Liked best: With teenage children, the free wifi, with husband the free on the doorstep parking, for mum/wife, everyone's holiday needs being met!
Liked least: Struggling to think of anything. Would probably say the stairs but only because they are fairly open and I'm a wuss!
