    “Great location!”

    I had a good stay as i used mainly as a base. About 20 sec walk to beach which is stunning. Great price wouldn't want to pay more due to some issues with property. Responsive owner when I reported fridge faulty, brought out a counter top fridge same day and replaced with new next day. So was very happy with that. He also brought key to bleed radiators to see if would help with noisy pipes, but didn't resolve it. I was advised that thermostat on radiator would help manage bedroom temp, but it ...

    I had a good stay as i used mainly as a base. About 20 sec walk to beach which is stunning. Great price wouldn't want to pay more due to some issues with property. Responsive owner when I reported fridge faulty, brought out a counter top fridge same day and replaced with new next day. So was very happy with that. He also brought key to bleed radiators to see if would help with noisy pipes, but didn't resolve it. I was advised that thermostat on radiator would help manage bedroom temp, but it didnt di anything just remained on. Was very hot in bedrooms and cold in lounge, but it us a 1920s property, so bring a jumper. Long standing issues I now see from other reviews: 1. No Internet - was informed after I had messaged it was down when owners checked the website, but this remained all week. 2. Double bed very small and mattress depressed one side but fine for 1. 3. Noisy heating. 4. No seal at base of shower screen so have to mop floor after shower. 5. Watch your toes going into bathroom..I didn't spot the lip twice. But once your aware its fine. 6. Perhaps just some written instructions would be good on what to do with heating, thankfully I knew, but owner did mention so knew there is a problem. 7. General damp smell to property but not surprising with age and location. It had been cleaned well, though still evidence of damp in window sills. Having said all of the above i became quite fond of the bungalow by the end, mainly due to is location.

The property

Smugglers Cottage is a welcoming, detached bungalow located in Saundersfoot, Pembrokeshire.

Less than a mile away from a sandy beach and excellent amenities, the cottage welcomes a party of four to a sought-after spot for a coastal retreat.

Guests are provided with a free parking permit at the nearby car park just paces away.

Be welcomed into an open-plan living space with a neat little kitchen area; stock up the cupboards, prepare beach picnics and utilise the electric oven and hob for heart-warming meals.

Dine at the table for four to relish a meal together and catch up on the day's events.

The sitting area has been beautifully decorated with wooden furnishings, sunflower paintings on the wall and two sumptuous leather sofas to kick back and relax, whether that's with your holiday read or your favourite show on the TV.

After a day of playing in the sand, throw your towels and bathing suits into the washing machine in the separate utility, complete with a tumble dryer and a freezer.

Wash away the day in the well-appointed, contemporary bathroom with a hot bubble bath or shower, whilst your towels warm on the heated towel rail.

Two minimal bedrooms are lovely settings to unwind after a busy day, with a double including ample built-in storage space and a pleasant twin room.

Start your holiday with a wander around Saundersfoot, where shops, pubs and eateries are right on your doorstep; popular with families, Saundersfoot Beach is the closest to Smugglers Cottage to grab an ice cream from the truck and settle on the sand.

Dogs must be kept on a lead around the harbour and are banned from the southern half of the beach between 1st May and 30th September, whilst the rest of the beach is dog-friendly!

Coppet Hall Beach and Monkstone Beach are two other spectacular beaches with stretches of sand perfect for games, paddling in the shore and soaking up the sun.

Take a short journey south to spend the day in Tenby, a bustling harbour town with a scenic golf club, the idyllic Tenby North Beach, along with plenty of history to discover at Tudor Merchant's House and the remains of Tenby Castle overlooking St Catherine's Island.

Further afield lies the picturesque Pembroke town, home to a magnificent castle, Monkton Old Hall and plenty of pubs for well-earned pints overlooking Mill Pond.

If you're seeking the renowned beaches of Pembrokeshire, head south of Pembroke to find the likes of Barafundle Bay Beach with its sparkling, sandy shoreline and the St Govans Head, where budding historians can discover Saint Govan's Chapel that was once home to a hermit in the 6th century.

Milford Haven lies a little further west with plenty of fish and chip shops to enjoy along the busy waterfront, catch a performance at the renowned Torch Theatre, or lace up your walking boots and explore more of the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park.

Venture along breath-taking coastlines scattered with wonders, try your hand at a variety of watersports and spot a variety of wildlife on your way.

Smugglers Cottage is a brilliant base to explore this stunning area of Wales.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £250.
