  • “These are comments, not criticisms and should be taken in the context of; we enjoyed our stay in the area and the main criteria for us is that we would return to the same property if we revisited the area.”

    ...

    However, the blurb doesn't mention that next door is a decrepit looking bungalow with rubbish and waste bins strewn everywhere and is inhabited by strange people, not a good impression ! The impression given is that this a quiet, private property, but there is someone elses garden immediately behind the property, the view to the estuary is minimal and traffic from a nearby road is easily heard. Access to the property from the the town is a rat run of parked vehicles and the final 200 yards is very narrow and twisty - care must be taken when driving. Inside; Whilst it didn't bother us unduly, the previously mentioned cobwebs in the lounge really shouldn't be there in a property that's touted as being upmarket and isn't cheap to rent. There is mould in the sealant around the bottom of the shower and this looks pretty disgusting and should be redone. The bath encourages water spillage between it and the wall and is therefore smelling of damp under the bath. The property is expected to be handed back in clean condition, so the tools provided to do that should be maintained in better condition. The brush head in the Dyson was clogged with fibres which I had to remove in order to get it to pick up properly and ther was no crevice attachment for it. The whole property lacks any sound deadening e.g rugs (understandable) but that makes for an echo chamber and partly due to that we had to use subtitles on the TV because the sound was dreadful. The faux leather settees in the lounge are uncomfortable and slippery. The kitchen is poorly laid out and lacks workspace. There are a few other niggles as well, but having said the above, we understand that this is a rental property and will never be kitted out and furnished in the same way we'd like our own house to be. On the plus side, the property was well kitted out. Instructions on how to operate everything seemed to be in place. The heating worked well and it was easy to warm up the property. The bed in the main bedroom was very large and comfortable and the bedlinen and also the bathroom towels etc were of good quality. The big bonus for us was the property having a bath, which was one reason we chose it. We only have a shower at home, so my wife, who has auto immune conditions, found that having a bath was bliss and helped her condition.

About the location

ST DOGMAELS

Cardigan 1 mile.

St Dogmaels is an ancient and tranquil village nestling peacefully around its ruined abbey at the mouth of the River Teifi on the totally unspoiled west Wales coast. One of its attractions is Y Felin, one of only two working watermills in Wales and retains the machinery installed in 1820. It is thought the mill was originally built by the monks of St Dogmaels' 12th century Abbey. The miller shows how the mill works and bread, flour and cakes can be purchased from the mill or you can enjoy tea and cakes and light lunches in the Coach House Café nearby. An award winning local produce market is held here every Tuesday and is well worth a visit. The village has a pub, a fish & chip shop, a Post Office, a cafe and a small museum at the abbey. There is also a pretty green and a millpond with ducks. Cardigan, a delightful ancient market town, is just over a mile away. This ancient town sits on the estuary of the River Teifi at the base of Cardigan Bay. Its unspoilt townscape and rich heritage provide a nostalgic backdrop to a thriving culture of arts and crafts, events and music festivals. Nearby is the wonderful Poppit Sands where you can relax on sunny days or enjoy invigorating walks in the cooler months, as well as exploring the beautiful Pembrokeshire Coast Path. St Dogmaels is the start or finish of the 186 mile Pembrokeshire Coast Path from St Dogmaels to Amroth. Visit Castell Henllys, the Iron Age Fort where everyone is encouraged to learn the ancient way of living, or visit the wonderful Shire Horse Farm to see how farming was before tractors. The Cardigan Bay dolphins can be seen off the bay on a regular basis and more active pursuits can be found at Cardigan Bay Active, including surfing, wildlife trips or coasteering. With scenic coastal, riverside and countryside walks and an array of other beaches and attractions all close by, this is a perfect holiday location all year round.
