AMELIA COTTAGE, BURRY PORT
Cottage | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 6
Named in celebration of Amelia Earhart, who in 1928 became the first woman to fly across the Atlantic landing in Burry Port; a feat which made her an instant celebrity even though she was only a passenger, or in her self-deprecating description, “a sack of potatoes” !
Amelia Cottage has recently been extensively refurbished; it has bags of character, is comfortably furnished and well equipped for your stay.
Off street parking for up to 3 cars with gated access to patio & the sun trap lawned rear garden with summerhouse.
A stones throw from Burry Port centre shops, pubs, restaurants + railway station with the marina, harbour, lighthouse and town beaches just beyond.
Bring your bikes and make use of the fantastic Millennium Coastal Park ( + cycle track) which runs through the harbour.
For visitors with young children - a new fully equipped playground has been installed in the park just around the corner.

"A hidden gem!"
Struggling to find somewhere with a good location AND reasonably priced we were delighted to find Amelia Cottage. My husband and I, his parents and our 2 (small) dogs stayed for a week and loved it. We are not fussy travellers but so often holiday lets don't quite tick all the boxes. The booking process was simple and the owners provided spot-on directions to the property (as anti-SatNav'ers this was an instant thumbs-up). Amelia Cottage is thoughtfully and tastefully decorated and the accommodation well appropriated, particularly the downstairs double bedroom & bathroom, for the less 'stair-happy' visitors. The dogs were in 7th heaven bolting up and down the fully-enclosed & well-manicured rear garden whilst we watched from the expansive patio with our wine and snacks. The nearby coastline & surrounding countryside are unspoilt and breath-taking, particularly Pembrey Country Park which is less than a 5 minute drive away. We were spoilt with the glorious early August weather (an oddity for Wales in the height of Summer!). A well-equipped kitchen, plump, squashy sofas and the wood-burner in the cosy lounge has already got us thinking about a return trip in the depths of winter for a red-wine, log-fuelled, toasty finale to our Trivial Pursuit (provided at the cottage) marathon. Top marks all around.
Great you all settled in so well and the cottage provided all you needed - yes please do come and stay again - it can be equally as spectacular here through the winter months!

"A gem of a family friendly cottage."
We were so happy that we chose this cottage for a stay in Burry Port. It was ideal for a stay with young children. But equally suitable for just a stay for couples as it is so cosy and well positioned. Another advantage is that there is no need for your own transport as you have access to a train station and bus stops virtually on your doorstop. It was nice to find a property that was so close to everything. Burry Port had everything you might need.
The house itself is so clean and beautifully painted and decorated. A lot of attention has gone into it. Some beautiful artwork and unique pieces of antiques are evident in all the rooms.
The downstairs shower room was so useful for when kids came back from beach as no traipsing through house with sandy feet. Lots of hot water available at all times.
The outside space is very attractive and nice and secluded. A real bonus in the midst of a town.
Burry Port is ideally located to explore .. Close enough to Swansea and Gower peninsula on one side and Pembrokeshire in other direction. You could not be bored here.
Thanks Eithne - great to hear you enjoyed your stay at Amelia Cottage - hope you'll make a return visit to us in the future

"A perfect cottage for relaxation and lovely sandy beaches to explore"
Amelia Cottage is lovely, furbished to a high standard with a peaceful garden. It has everything you might need and my holiday there was so relaxing. Great service too. It is a short walk to the centre and beach. Burry Port is a charming village with friendly people. The beaches are just miles and miles of sand! At the nearby Park there are plenty of activities - dry ski slope, sand and kite surfing & more. I loved our long walks on the beach and coming back and snuggling down in the cottage. It was hard to leave the place!
