    PROS Gorgeous views. Cottage had everything you could need and was very clean. Heaters warmed the place up nicely. Nice walk to the beach. View from dining room was amazing. Convenient rear yard - good for drying sports equipment. CONS Outside could do with a tidy up. No 'welcome' info, only knew the key fob in the cottage was for acces through the caravan park by reading other reviews. Sofas not comfy for sitting on for any long period of time - OK for perching.

    This is our fourth visit to Hillcroft but unfortunately our last because the back yard was dirty and untidy, the front had thistles and nettles growing through the paving slabs. The inside smelt damp and there was black mold on the ceiling in the bathroom. We spent hours cleaning and bleaching the kitchen and washing down the back patio.

    Lovely cottage with very helpful owners when asked questions via text. Stunning location 10 minutes walk to a beautiful beach. Cottage fully equipment with everything you could possible need and lots more. Nice surprise with my first cup of tea on arrival (Welsh Cakes) Even had a Chinese Takeaway delivered, which was great value for money and was very tasty(left menu in cottage) Lovely lady and her dogs next door. Would certainly stay again.

    We stayed at Hillcroft (4 adults) for three nights...for us it was an ideal base for what we wanted to do, although we didn't have the opportunity to explore the sand dunes or beach. The accommodation was good and the beds comfy - linen smelt nice and fresh! On arrival, trust your satnav and drive slowly - the road is a bit bumpy.

    The location and view is very nice but the road to the accommodation is terrible. From the accommodation to the beach is only 400 meters on feet and that's what we like. There are a lot of beautiful places in the area to visit and you can walk for miles in nature.

    Response on behalf of the owner; Thank you for your comments. Unfortunately the road is beyond my control, as I have previously advised; it is described on the website as being reached via a rough track. It is not a tarmacked road in parts, and, as long as I drive slowly, it is perfectly accessible for my small car. I would not describe it as terrible, but as described as in the property details. There is a fob to enable guests to use the gate at the end of the field, which has been commented on and appreciated by previous guests. As the caravan site is now open next door until October, I have been directing my guests up to the gate by the cottage, they can then walk the few hundred yards get the fob, and go through the gate. I was disappointed by the low score for cleanliness as I myself prepared the property for this guest’s arrival.

    Comfortable cottage in quiet area, negatives are as in earlier reviews, one was the track leading up to cottage is rough but is ok if taken steadily although an electronic fob is available to allow access via the caravan park after arrival, the only other was the cottage is not as close to the shore as we thought. There is a winding footpath through the sand dunes to get there. Overall we had a great stay with fantastic views across the channel and easy road access for exploring further afield, Barry Island and the Gower Peninsula within short distance. Would definitely stay there again.

    Not quite what we expected, probably be best during the summer when you don't need to rely on heat to keep you warm

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner; Thank you for your feedback regarding Hillcroft. I provide a wall mounted electric radiator in the bathroom, a log burner which, when kept lit, provides heat, and four electric heaters on castors which can be moved around the Cottage. All electric is included, so these can be kept on, there are no ‘hidden costs’, with guests having to pay for electric with a meter. I also have an electric blanket on the double bed, and extra throws which can be used wherever required. I am very disappointed that your expectations of the Cottage were not met. Hillcroft is enjoyed by many of my regulars, and feedback from my previous guests has been positive. I am sorry that you were not completely satisfied, but as can be seen from other reviews, many people have really enjoyed their stay with us.
