“Lovely place in a great location”
Reviewed 1 May 2017 for a stay in April 2017

Great place to stay, close to beach, pub across the road, nice walks. Bit concerned that the kitchen may not be as equipped as home, but there was no need to worry, everything that you needed was there. You have to go prepared as there are no shops around, but so long as you know in advance there is no issue. Requested on the day of arrival that we all had double rooms rather than twin, it was kindly sorted out for us. Dog friendly. A hamper on arrival.
Could not fault it.

“Fabulous position and comfortable house”
Reviewed 20 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

This is a comfortable and well thought out house in a lovely village and within a stone's throw of a lovely beach. Lots of dog walking and great meals at the pub just a few steps away made this a very relaxing break. Thoroughly recommended.
Please note that dogs are only allowed on this beach from October to April, but are allowed on Oxwich Bay all year around.

“Fantastic place to stay .Put off by 'task list ' left for us to complete.”

Great welcome, small heating glitch soon overcome by Ron the Landlord and some warm coats.Close to great beach yards away and pub opposite , but take cash as on our second night there (different staff) they wanted to keep my credit card behind the bar.This is a bad idea as I know from experience. Only downside at house was a written request to mop and Hoover floor and strip the beds and take sheets,duvets and pillow cases off. I may be old fashioned or just unhelpful but if I am paying just under two hundred punds for two nights I expect this to be part of the deal .Still good place if you don't mind mucking in with the. Domestics!

The reason we ask guests to "leave the cottage as they found it" is to enable us to present it in the best possible condition for the next party. It is generally accepted practice in self catering accommodation and I have to say this is the only guest to have raised this issue in all our years in the self catering cottage business. Indeed the vast majority of guests leave the cottage spotlessly clean and tidy for which we are very grateful.

“Perfect For Large Families”
Reviewed 9 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

We stayed in Ivy Cottage (both Oxwich View and Port Eynon Beach) in a family group of 10, spanning 3 generations. This dual cottage location is ideal for an extended family of our size. The downstairs bedroom in Port Eynon beach was perfect for Grandma (who needs a little bit of assistance getting out and about).

Both parts of the cottage had multiple bedrooms, including en-suites and separate kitchen/dining/living room areas. This was perfect for organising evening meals and breakfast as well as allowing us to have a 'quiet' part of the cottage (for the older members of the family) to chill out while the rest of the family were being more sociable (beer/wine/board games).

The property is pet friendly and we took our family dogs. There are stair-gates provided (which are easy to assemble) so we could keep the dogs downstairs. The downstairs is paved in stone flooring, which is easy to clean too and a vacuum cleaner + a multitude of cleaning products were provided in addition to the cleaner service at start/end of our rental.

The kitchens were both well equipped with all the usual expected facilities and the garden areas both had large charcoal BBQ's available to use (which we did).

There is free Wifi access which is essential due to the poor phone signal we encountered in this area. It is quite remote, but that adds to the ambience of the area. It is only about 5 minutes walk from the beach. Our only downside was the views as we thought there would be good sea views. Technically you can see the sea from a couple of the rooms, but only a very small view of it over rooftops of other buildings between this cottage and the beach. But as it's only a 5 minute walk, it didn't matter too much.

We loved it in general and would recommend it as well as likely return in the future.
