Newgale beach is amazing - long stretches of clean sand and wonderful waves for playing in. And this holiday rental was the perfect place to enjoy the beach from. When we weren't on the beach, we could look at it from the living room, bedroom or kitchen. And being able to go straight from the cold sea to a warm shower was a big bonus.
The house was clean and welcoming, with comfortable settees in the living room (not the case in a lot of holiday rentals) and plenty of dining seats (again, often overlooked in holiday rentals). The outside areas were also well maintained.
We ate in every night and there was sufficient cooking pans and utensils for basic cooking - and who wants to do more on holiday?
We were lucky with the weather, but I think we would have enjoyed our holiday even if the weather hadn't been as good.
We didn't want to leave and are making plans to return next year.
We had a lovely week at Swn y Don. It is a large spacious house, well maintained with a high standard of cleanliness. Views from the master bedroom and living room were amazing and just a few minutes to the beach. The kitchen was well equipped with 3 fridges which was great for a group of 9 with different tastes in food. The only downside - as its on the hill, the back garden has a little steep bit and a gap in the fence onto the back lane rather than a gate which isn't ideal for very young children. Otherwise perfect and we would definitely stay again.
We had a lovely week in this spacious house with amazing sea views. We will definitely be returning for a visit in the future.
Best beach house in Newgale, Wales, UK - was perfect for our wedding party rendezvous as it was central to our two venues, St. David's Cathedral, and Druidstone Inn. We were there end of June 2017. Five bedrooms, 3 full baths were perfect to accommodate us along with the large kitchen, dining room, three refrigerators, two freezers and spacious laundry room. I was able to cook and bake for a large group of people. The lounge was a perfect place for the ladies to get ready with their hair and makeup while overlooking the ocean. Within walking distance also was a cafe for breakfast and lunch and a pub to go out for drinks and dinner.
For those not familiar with Wales, the weather is unpredictable and most likely rainy, so be prepared (does not deter the locals who love to go into the ocean in their wetsuits and surf!) Central heat is available and we used it one day as it got very cold outside.
Suggestions for improvement for the owner would be to provide measuring cups and electric beaters for baking. The microwave oven is old and will start a fire if metal is in it.
