“11 Innisfree Cottages was ideal for our short holiday in Llansteffan. The house is comfortable and very well equipped, and ideally located. The information provided about the property and the village was both informative and interesting. It was a pleasure to meet the owner, Diane, who was very friendly and helpful. We would love to stay in 11 Innisfree again one day, and would not hesitate to recommend it to others.”

Andy and Catherine, June 2018

“We enjoyed our stay at 11 Innisfree very much. The cottage was comfortable, spacious and well equipped and we appreciated the extra goodies the friendly owner provided for our arrival. The pictures and other decorative items enhanced its attractiveness. The gardens and pool area were well kept and provided a pleasant outside sitting space.
The beach with its miles of sand is only a few steps away from the cottage and there are lovely walks along the coast path and up to the castle. Llansteffan is a peaceful, relaxing village and there are plenty of places to visit within easy reach. Laugharne and the National Botanic Gardens should not be missed. A ferry from Llansteffan to Ferryside will be starting soon.
We highly recommend this cottage and intend to return for further visits.”

“I had the most relaxing extended stay. The location was perfect for me, lots of lovely long strolls on the beach and such friendly people. Easy access to Swansea, Cardiff and Carmarthen if you miss the hubbub of city/town life. I would suggest making sure you visit the supermarket before you arrive, but there is a Spar a few miles away for necessities that you might forget. I will definitely be back!”

The cottage is in a great location just near to the beach. If you want a chilled, relaxing break that’s what you get.
Beautifully kept village, litter free beach (amazing amount of shells ) stunning scenery and amazing walks. Oh a fabulous fish & chips! We will definately return to this wonderful place.”

“Lovely accommodation in a small & very well kept holiday complex. The swimming pool is great but there is also lots of public green space and a multi sports court just outside - to help burn off energy.
The location is ideal - right next to the beach but with the castle just up the hill and the centre of the village 5 minutes walk.
Would highly recommend - and we hope to return!”
