Burry Port

With its attractive Lighthouse built in 1842, and stunning views, Burry Port Harbour has long been a favourite place to take a stroll and get some sea air. The Harbour has a fascinating heritage with its three working docks. It is now part of the Millennium Coastal Park, and has benefited from a 4.2m transformation. Visitors strolling along the coastal path can admire the yachts and working boats moored in the Marina. The picturesque Millennium Coastal Park stretches out beyond the Marina with all its cycling and walking opportunities.

Situated on the south-west coast of Wales to the West of Llanelli in Carmarthenshire.The town is probably best known for the 1928 transatlantic flight by Amelia Earhart. Being the first woman ever to fly across the Atlantic, she landed at Burry Port on June 18th 1928 in the seaplane "Friendship" after running out of fuel.

Burry Port beach is small, but relatively uncrowded, walk around the corner and you are onto the 8 mile stretch of award winning Cefn Sidan sands. There are clear panoramic views across Carmarthen Bay to the Gower and Carmarthenshire coast There are a range of water based activities for the holidaymaker.

With stunning scenery, beautiful clean beaches and the wonderful Pembrey Country Park,Burry Port has a lifeboat station, a small supermarket and a range of gift and craft shops. It also has a Brass Band and a famous Male Voice Choir. The village has two websites devoted to its activities: BurryPort.org and Burry-Port.co.uk

Pembrey Country Park is next door to Burry Port, approx 10-15 mins walk. It has a dry ski slope and toboggan run.

The National Wildlife and Wetlands Centre, Sandy Water Park, Kidwelly Castle, Parc y Scarletts,( new home of the Scarlett’s Rugby team )are all nearby. Burry Port provides a central base to explore the Gower Peninsula, Carmarthenshire andPemrokeshire.

Until the 1850s Burry Port did not exist, then the village grew up around the new harbour that was built to export the coal produced in the Gwendraeth valley. It developed around copper and tinplate works and had a dock which could hold ships up to 1800 tonnes. During the Second Wold War there was a large explosives factory here. It used to be Industrial Area and is now reinventing itself for tourism. The transformation from busy industrial harbour to holidaymaker's playground has only recently occurred. As part of the Millennium project Burry Port has benefited from a 4.2 million pound transformation. A cycle track and footpath has been laid from Bynea (Llanelli) to Pembrey - a distance of some 14 miles. A new Marina was developed and Burry Port was transformed from an industrial heritage site to a busy harbour once more. Industry is now largely confined to a few marine and engineering companies and Parsons Pickles. The transformation of the old Burry Port Harbour into a bustling Marina is attracting more visitors to the area and boosting the economy. The overall Plan for Burry Port, when completed, will incorporate leisure, commercial and residential in the Marina area.

"wow factor"

We had a fab break in August. The house is to a very high standard in every way. Lovely touches like flowers and wine left for us. We cooked in and had a great choice of equipment to choose from. Beds are all very comfy with lovely quality linen. Superb position literally on the harbour, Lighthouse cafe,Pavillion cafe, Neptune and Cornish Arms all offer very good food, and all close to walk to or cycle. Beaches and Pembrey provide lots to do for all ages. We have been before, and are drawn back time after time, as the area has so much to offer, a real gem. Many thanks to Kay and Chris and Danni their helpful cleaner, who was available throughout our stay if needed. We can't wait to return next year.

Thank you for your kind comments. We are very happy to see our valued guests return and look forward to seeing you again next year. Thank you for choosing to visit Harbour Houses.

"Excellent!"

Perfect house, perfect location and would highly recommend. The owner meets you and this makes a great difference, its so nice to deal with someone face-to-face these days!
The only drawback for me is that if you are a overseas traveller then WiFi is a must - especially with teens around!

Thank you for your kind comments. We have been considering the addition of Wi-Fi and it may be added. It is a difficult decision as some people like the fact that youngsters cannot spend the entire holiday ensconced in their room on a computer! There is an internet cafe (The Surf Bar) over the road which is why I have not felt it imperative to add Wi-Fi yet, but I do understand that it is an important facility for some people, so thank you for your opinion. It is a great help when people suggest ways that we can improve the overall holiday experience. I hope that we will see you back one day!

"The perfect holiday home"

The home was superbly maintained, with everything we needed and more. With the town and beach in close walking distance it was perfect for our small children. The owners have made it really feel like a home away from home.

Thank you. I hope that you will return!

"Fantastic "home from home" by the sea - highly recommended"

Booking and arrangement was easy and hassle free and Kay was incredibly accommodating and helpful. On arrival the house was a very pleasant surprise; it was very clean and the fixtures, fittings and furniture were of a very high standard and we all felt immediately at home. Just around the corner from the house, the "marina", lighthouse and beach were great (even in the rain) and the Lighthouse Cafe is a real gem with fantastic food (especially breakfasts) and friendly atmosphere. The fish and chip shop close by was the best we've had in a very long time. The town centre (such as it is) is very close but it looks tired and in need of a make over. We went into The Neptune but found the reception very unfriendly and decided not to go back, but did try the Cornish Arms which, although friendly with OK food, proved vastly overpriced. The other pubs looked too uninviting to even enter. Surprisingly there were a number of take away options all willing to deliver - the Indian take away was particularly good. There is a country park about 3 miles away which is absolutely brilliant; we went dry slope skiing (one of our children had a tutor who was incredibly helpful and friendly), and horse riding, and there was also crazy golf, woodland walks and miles of stunning beach.
We also went to the Caves in the Brecon Beacons and over onto the Gower which was spectacular (especially Rossiliy). We had a fantastic week and would highly recommend to anyone.

I am glad that you felt at home. It is our aim to make people feel happy and want to return.

"Best ever."

Having stayed in several bed and breakfasts, hotels and self catering places, I can honestly say, Sandy Harbour was the best ever. A real home from home. there is nothing that Kay has not thought of, everything from fantastic comfortable beds to egg timers!!!! Counting how many sleeps until I return. The location is wonderful and allows a real get away from the rat race.

Thank you for your kind words. I hope that we will see you again.
