    We very much enjoyed our stay in Sunny Hill cottage, which is situatied in a beautiful location in the tiny harbour of Porthgain and on the coast path. The name is well chosen as it sits on top of the hill and catches the sun whenever it is out. Porthgain has a very popular pub and restaurant, which need to be booked for indoor dining. There are additional tables outside, however, for lunch or a nice evening. The nearest shop is a 10 minutes drive. The cottage offers plenty of space for five people. The kitchen is well equipped and the owner kindly put out some basics like milk and sugar. Overall a lovely place to stay with beautiful walks straight from the cottage.

    The cottage is in a great location above the harbour but a public footpath runs past the front door through the outdoor green space for the cottage. The path is well used by walkers using the coastal path and locals walking their dogs who do not clean up after their animals and we had dog mess left outside the front door and next to the washing line. The additional charge for electricity seemed inappropriate given the cost of the rental.

    The property has a great location ideal for walkers with paths right on your doorstep. The cleanliness however left a lot to be desired with mould on the curtains, now washed by my wife and removed from the shower and kitchen by our daughter. The electricity charges are also rather steep on top of rental cost.

    Great location. Nice owners. Interior and furnishings stuck in the 70s. Had to do a meter reading and had to bring our own bed linen... Seriously. And no children allowed (although we ignored that). Needs completely updating. Expensive for what it is.

    The cottage was cosy and the owners are close by and were very welcoming and helpful. The photos on line do not do it justice and was bigger than we expected. A stay here is what you want to make of it as the area is very quiet but of outstanding natural beauty. There are plenty of walks to take and you can jump into your car and travel the area and there is plenty to do within an hour's drive for old and young alike.

    Firstly the ratings; Putting comfort and equipment together is misleading as a rental can be well-equipped but if the beds are uncomfortable or it's cold, how do you rate it? Cleanliness; we would have rated it average but for something inexcusable...more later. We can't agree that this is a cottage...we live in a cottage and it's unusual, cosy, quaint and old. Sunny Hill Cottage is none of these, it's basically an "annex" attached to the owners' own house. We stay in lots of self catering cottages, and they usually come with extensive guidelines/instructions...when to put out rubbish, where are the recycling bins, where is all the equipment stored, etc etc. The guidelines for Sunny Hill were sparse to say the least. Nothing about where to leave rubbish, or where important equipment was stored. Yes, the owner lives next door, but we don't like to be constantly knocking on their door. It's somewhat odd these days to be told to bring one's own bedding. However, when we saw the state of one of the pillows we were glad we had, as it had a number of stains on it that looked very much like blood. I can provide a photograph if needed. Before turning in for the first night I had to search the house for bedside lamps that worked. Neither of those in the downstairs bedroom had working lightbulbs in them, so I had to swap one from upstairs. None of the lightbulbs in the house were energy-saving which is the owners' choice of course, but unacceptable given that the tenant pays for the electricity they use! The Central Heating is controlled by the owner. Halfway through our stay I mentioned to her that we'd found the house quite cold in the morning, her answer was that they don't have the heating on in the morning themselves, and "anyway haven't you got electric heaters?" On the final morning the heating did come on, but the radiators started to go cold around 10pm every night. The weather turned colder during our stay, so we took advantage one night of the open fire. Yes, coal and a pack of wood are provided in an outside bunker, but we could find no fireguard or the means to carry coal into the house, so we stuck with wood and watched the fire like hawks in case it spat onto the carpet. On the morning we left, we found a hod and a fireguard hidden in a cupboard under the stairs. Nothing mentioned in the guidelines! The pull-cords in the bathroom and shower room were very dirty, particularly the one in the shower room. Again, I have a photograph if you require it, also one showing how filthy the shower room floor was. There was a shortage of towel rails in both rooms, with NONE in the shower room, which meant the towel had to go on the (dirty) floor. The house is advertised with "Free WiFi". We generally avoid electronic fripperies on holiday but we did try the WiFi...it wasn't available anywhere in the house. On arrival, we were shocked when we checked the upstairs bedrooms. We don't think they've been decorated since the 60's and they were dark, dingy, small and uninviting. The constantly clicking Fire Alarm on the landing would have been unbearable if we'd opted to sleep upstairs anyway, so we opted for the double room downstairs which wasn't much better, but large enough. Apart from the comment about the heating, the owners were friendly enough, but they desperately need to supply a decent information folder and put some effort into upgrading the house. We were surprised there weren't more comments in the visitors book to reflect this. The Welsh Cakes on arrival could have been a nice touch, but they tasted stale and the butter was smeared on very haphazardly. Sorry to be picky but you did ask!
