About the property

To the front of the property is an enclosed patio seating area where you can settle and watch the world go by, enjoy views of the Gower peninsula and watch the sunset after a busy day exploring and enjoying the area.

Entering through the front door the hallway and stairs lead to three bright, contemporary bedrooms which sleep up to five. There is a double with king sized bed, a twin and a single room. Downstairs is a spacious open plan living space with three comfy sofas and a dining area. There is a TV with DVD player, a selection of novels, children’s toys, books and family games.

The large kitchen/breakfast room, has seating for guests to enjoy a leisurely breakfast and is well equipped for most needs with oven, hob, dishwasher, microwave and fridge/freezer. A large window looks out onto the paved garden with its patio and summer-house placed so that you can sit and enjoy the sun as the day goes by.

The modern tiled family bathroom features a wave corner bath with fitted mains shower over. Dotted around the cottage are paintings and photographs produced by the owner which we hope will add to the unique atmosphere of your stay.

Wifi, heating, linen and towels are all included, you only need to bring beach towels.

A few minutes’ walk takes you to the harbour, marina and beaches, as well as being close to the Wales Coastal Path and cycle track (NCR 4, with NCR 47 nearby), there is so much to explore and soak in. Local shops, cafes, pubs and take-aways are also within an easy stroll, so there is no need for a car on your holiday.

If you want to get out and about, Llanelli centre and retail parks are 15 minutes away by road, and both the county town of Carmarthen and Wales’ second city – Swansea – are around 30 minutes away. With Pembrey and Burry Port railway station just 5 minutes’ walk from Driftwood Cottage, you are linked to the train network and can be in the bustling capital, Cardiff, in just over an hour. If you enjoy sports or outdoor pursuits, there are local golf courses, Pembrey motor racing circuit, Ffos Las racecourse, the Scarlets stadium in Llanelli and the Liberty Stadium in Swansea – home to the Swans and the Ospreys.

About Gill Swain

We 'discovered' Burry Port in 2013 and moved here in 2016. We looked around for a property and a project that we could turn into holiday accommodation and found this lovely mid terrace cottage in need of some updating. We do hope you'll book with us and enjoy Burry Port and your holiday here, whether you're looking for beaches, woodlands, mountains, relaxation or adventure, we have it all here in South Wales.

Gill Swain purchased this cottage in 2017

Why Gill Swain chose Burry Port

The property looks out across open space to the inner harbour with the marina, lighthouse and beaches just a short walk away. From the cottage you can watch beautiful sunrises in the east and wonderful sunsets to the west.

What makes this cottage unique

The cottage is close to all the amenities Burry Port has to offer and a short journey to the many attractions of South Wales. With the railway station just a short walk away you don't even need a car to get away from it all!

A true Home away from Home

  • 5 of 5

Wonderfully located property in lovely Burry Port. There is nothing the hosts haven’t considered or provided. From egg cups to wind up torches, milk in the fridge to a travel cot. Everything was on hand. Great directions & instructions. My only complaint was that we didn’t stay long enough. Without doubt, We will be back!
