    we enjoyed our stay at the cottage, but not one of the best cottages we have stayed at. a bbq was advertised but when we got there it was bust so as we like to have bbqs and weather was goodish, we ended up buying a one. patio chairs outside didnt seem to have been cleaned since last yr, green and brown but were meant to be white. we had to bleach them to use outside. recycling??? where do i start. the boxes to put it all in were absolutely disgusting, stinking infact then when it was dustbin day we had no idea what we had to do with it all or where to put it. lucky for the nxt door neighbour. the information book seriously needs to be updated as the dustbin calander is for 2010 and the one on the wall 2011(i think). overall we would come back but just due to the fact that we have relatives who live in Aberkenfig so location suited us. I understand it sleeps 8/9 people and it was August but the price we payed dosent reflect on the actually cottage. you dont mind paying almost £1000 if its spotlessly clean and everything works and for the amount of people, you definaltely need anothe toilet.. We managed as there was only 5 of us.

    Nice cottage but water pipes very noisy, especially at night, and we could not understand how to make the central heating control work properly. Given that we were there over Christmas that made quite a lot of difference.
