“Lovely cottage in ideal location”

Reviewed 14 Sep 2015

Lovely well equiped cottage with an enclosed garden in an ideal location. The local pubs and shops are just around the corner and a short walk takes you to the local beach. A short car journey takes you into Pembrey country park or Llanelli.

“Lovely relaxing week in a quiet and friendly little town”

Reviewed 3 Jun 2015

Amelia Cottage is lovely with a beautiful garden and the owner provides ample information to help you enjoy your stay. Burry Port is a really nice and friendly area with everything you need close by. My children loved the park being so near to the cottage and we all enjoyed being able to take a 5 minute walk to the harbour. A short drive enabled us to visit Kidwelly castle, Pembrey country park and Carmarthen, we could easily have enjoyed many more places had we had the time. Both the cottage and the town are very dog friendly. I highly recommend both Amelia Cottage and its very helpful owner Richard!

“An absolute gem of a place!”

Reviewed 6 May 2015

There is nothing bad to say about this cottage. It is extremely comfortable and well equipped, the towels and soaps were a lovely bonus! With no more than a ten minute walk to the town centre and fifteen to the sea front, it was perfect. We ate in The Neptune, The Cornish Arms and The Pemberton Arms, all of which are worth a visit. The beaches are amazing and people very friendly.

“A lovely cottage in a great location”

Reviewed 8 Apr 2015

Thoroughly enjoyed our Easter weekend at Amelia Cottage with the family. The cottage was very cosy and beautifully decorated with really comfortable beds. The grandchildren enjoyed playing in the lovely secure garden. No need for a car as the location is perfect for the little harbour & local shops or just a short stroll to the railway station. Will definitely return & ensure we take the bikes as the cycle track along the coast is fantastic and of course the sun was shining making it a perfect extended weekend break.

Good to hear you enjoyed your break - agree it's well worth bringing bikes to explore and meander along the coastal path, cycle through Pembrey Country Park and if you can manage it there's 7 miles of beach at Cefn Sidan; by the way - the summerhouse at Amelia doubles up as a bikestore if needed!

“A hidden gem!”

Reviewed 14 Aug 2014

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.”

Reviewed 13 Jul 2014

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”

Reviewed 21 May 2014

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!
