“Gorgeous escape creating the most amazing memories - TOTALLY AWESOME!!!!!”
Reviewed 27 February 2013 for a stay in February 2013

Back in September 2012 I started my search for accommodation for my partners surprise 40th birthday. Nothing too out of the ordinary there then??!! Add to this the fact that there would be 22 adults and 13 children in the party, I started to realise the enormity of the task at hand. We needed a place where we could all be together, still have our own space and not worry any other guests if we had a bit of a party. I was starting to get despondent and then I found Pentre Bach! And oh were my expectations well surpassed.
Mike and Wilma were always on hand to answer any questions and they put my mind at rest. We had booked out all four cottages and it was just perfect.
The main house is the central hub and we had all the guests with small kids in here so that we could put the monitors on in the evening and still go outside for a BBQ without the worry of kids being far away. The kitchen was the centre of the house and it is a warm, inviting area where we spent loads of time cooking and just chatting. There are five large bedrooms in the main house and they are all superb!!! Although we were all had little kids and they were up at different times of the night, because the house is so spacious it doesn’t bother the other guests. The bedrooms are all tastefully decorated and luxurious and you feel like you’ve stepped into another world of peace and tranquillity.
Y Popty is an adjoining cottage to the main house and we had two couples and 4 children sleeping there. They were also able to leave their babies to sleep with the monitors on and could come and socialise with the rest of the group. This cottage also has a room with bunk beds in, which was brilliant for the two older children. This cottage is equipped with its own lounge and kitchen and is a self-contained unit on its own or an extra space for a larger party.
Pen Y Lon was the haven away from the main house where the three couples who didn’t have children could escape to. It is modern, bright and spacious. I have to admit that I escaped there at a couple of points just to sit in the conservatory and take in the breathtaking views and warmth.
Each unit has it’s own kitchen utensils, plates and cups and is a self-contained unit on it’s own. Mike and Wilma have really made sure that every eventuality is catered for and you will find anything you need there. You bring the food and it’s the perfect place to escape.
I can’t rave about Pentre Bach enough – we visited in February 2013 and had a lovely wintry summer’s weekend. We all ventured out to the beach and the dogs and kids loved running around the grounds exploring. Just sitting on the front lawn taking in the beauty of the surrounding fields and ocean makes you feel like you’ve released all your stresses of city life and can finally relax. Totally relax!
Mike and Wilma, Pentre Bach is a little gem and I will be shouting its praises as much as I can.
Thank you so much for creating the brilliant memories for our whole party – we will never forget it and will definitely be back!

“Fantazing! (my new word for Fantastically Amazing)”
Reviewed 19 February 2013 for a stay in February 2013

I was one of a group of 32 who stayed at Pentrebach for a long weekend. The location is amazingly beatiful but the house/cottages and its facilities were outstanding. This is a weekend to be remembered by everyone from the youngest child to the oldest adult and even the two dogs who had so much fun running around the large garden and open fields. The pictures on the pentrebach website only do this place a fraction of justice. It is outstandingly beautiful, large, relaxing and fully equipped with everything you need. The adjoining cottages were equally fantastic and I would recommend this place to anyone. Thank you for a great stay Pentrebach.

“An amazing farmhouse with views to die for”
Reviewed 1 February 2013 for a stay in November 2012

We stayed in the large house for a re-union. We were amazed at the size of the house, but was it incredibly warm, cosy and very well furnished. There was a log fire waiting for us when we arrived! All the bedrooms were very comfortable and clean. Everyone had a good nights sleep after long wind -swept walks on the beach! there are Lovely views of the sea frrom the house . Mike and Wilma are very hospitable and did everything to make our stay memorable - which it was. We are already arranging another re-union in November. It is the best place!

Thank you very much for your very detailed and lovely review. It was a pleasure to welcome you and your friends for your hen party a few weeks ago.
We're sorry that the water ran out for you but we do have two large hot water tanks ready installed in the attic, just waiting for a plumber to complete the pipework, then there will be no problem with running out of hot water.
We hope to be able to welcome you and your friends, and their families , back to Pentre Bach again in the future.
