The owner was very friendly and welcoming. The property was adequate. It definitely was a property for dog lovers. The bedrooms were also very small but we managed. Very quiet though and no problem with the kennels.
Recommends: Newton beach. Sand dunes, Ogmore and Margam Park.Family from Plymouth - 5th August 2017

Recommendations: Woodz Pizza's, beaches, fun fair, Porthcawl town, Bridgend and great for visiting McArthur Glen Designer Outlet.Lisa from St. Athan - 15th March 2017
This holiday home had all the basics you would need. Main bedroom very small, fortunately as there were only two of us we were able to dress in the second bedroom. Shower was good and there was a washing machine if we had wanted it. Also the owner was very pleasant, there was milk and cakes for our arrival. We did leave our dog for a few hours at their kennels, so we could visit the Designer Centre at Bridgend. Overall we did enjoy our week because we like Porthcawl, in spite of the rain some days.Christine from Billericay Essex - 18th June 2016
