No issues with acces or car parking and big comfy rooms with nice big beds menat a good nights sleep after a good days holidaying The decking and a glass of wine watching the sun go down meant a lovely end to each and every days stay. We will be back, it was terrific

Enjoyable stay

Great position, lovely garden. Great for dogs/BBQ/Hottub. Kitchen has every utensils you would find in your own home, even some scales for a spot of baking, irresistible when you have the luxury of an Aga. Bedrooms all massive. House not too POSH that you're frightened to sneeze and a lot better than some property's that allow dogs.Thanks for the lovely welcoming scones, clotted cream, jam and tea.

Fantastic family holiday by the sea

We stayed at the house as two busy families looking for a relaxing break. We couldn't have asked for more. The house had plenty of space for 4 adults, 7 children and 5 dogs!!! We all had a great time making the most of the proximity of the beach and the fabulous fifteen restaurant, as well as the beautiful surrounding area. We all had a fantastic time made all the better by fun evenings in the hot tub.

Pendowr House

Our group of 8 adults (all over 50 years of age) stayed for a short break this November. The house was in a good location as we could walk to the beach, but wouldn't have liked to have walked during the summer as the road would be too busy.We found the house rather small if there were any more in our party, as it is advertised to take 12 but you wouldn't be able to sit 12 around the dining table at one time (even is some were children) The house was rather 'tired' around the edges and could have done with a really good clean (eg: the skirting boards were dirty and the dish drainer was a bit 'manky'). Positives - Kitchen was well equipped and the beds were very comfortable. Our neighbour Dan was a really lovely young man who gave us a lovely welcome and was really helpful throughout our stay. Negatives - The CD didn't work. We would have found it helpful if we knew we had to provide our own bin liners, washing up liquid etc. What was advertised as a utility room was only an old cupboard (which smelt musty and I didn't want to investigate further than the door). We enjoyed our stay and would recommend the property, but with reservations relating to the 'finer details'.

A brilliant place to stay

A fantastic house in a fantastic location. We booked online and had no idea what to expect but this house was amazing and exceeded any expectations we may have had. Super comfy with generous size rooms and a kitchen with everything you would possibly need, a real home from home. We celebrated my Mum's birthday here and it was great to be able to accommodate the whole family in one place, she didn't stop smiling all weekend. I would definitely recommend Pendowr House, we really didn't want to leave.
