2014

Our first Christmas away from home for years, decades even, so it was a bit of a gamble! Delighted to discover that we were Applecroft's first Christmas guests, and overwhelmed by the special welcome - not just the bara brith etc. etc. etc.but the Christmas tree, the Christmas decorations, the candles, even the Christmas loo rolls! We've been made so welcome by Roger and Menna and have thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Lots of walking (and mud!) and the Britannia down the hill and the King's Head in Llangennith are exactly what pubs should be.
Chris & Jo Horrocks, London & Ro Horrocks, Brighton. (20/12/14 - 29/12/14)

Our 1st visit to 'Applecroft' and hopefully not the last!  Lovely comfortable, well equipped cottage, the views were amazing with the changing seascape. We had some lovely walks along the beach, everything about this weeks break was top class.

Great cottage, well equipped, great location with amazing views. Lovely touch with the welcome pack. Local shop with the essentials you may need with good cakes. Would love to come back in the summer to enjoy the garden and sunsets.

Our second visit to Applecroft. Lovely comfortable cottage with everything you could wish for - lovely welcome pack, superbly appointed, stunning views & such a variety of walks from the doorstep. We only used the car once to go over to Rhossili. We will be back again next year.
Angela and Tim Hodges, Wolverhampton. (1/11/14 - 8/11/14) 

Top class cottage, with 5* quality. We particularly liked getting up in the morning and watching the changing seascape. Had several meals at the Britannia and enjoyed every one of them. A week of expansive beach walks, easy on the legs and the eye.
Judith & Charles Aldridge, West Mids.  (25/10/14 - 1/11/14)

We expected much already from the description, but Applecroft exceeded all our expectations. The cottage is lovely, the landscape beautiful beyond imagination and there isn't anything lacking here. The welcome package was fantastic.
Many thanks for a perfect holiday.

Our second visit to Applecroft and it is just a lovely as we remembered. The cottage is lovely and the view simply breath-taking! The welcome pack was lovely, and much appreciated after a long day visiting the various gorgeous beachesnear by. Another fantastic meal at the Britannia Inn too. Thank you.
Sam and Kevin, Oxfordshire  (20/09/14 - 27/09/14)

Thank you for a wonderful holiday. The Welcome Pack was fantastic - the Rioja went down a treat as did the very tasty Bara Brith, and all in a lovely souvenir bag too!  The cottage was very comfortable and extremely well equipped - and of course
the views are to die for!  We loved the village and everyone was so friendly. We particularly liked the village shop and tea room, visiting it over a dozen times in our short stay!

June and Roger Butcher, Hemel Hemsted (13/09/14 - 20/09/14)

We have driven a very long way from our house in Spain for this holiday, and it has been worth every hour behind the wheel.  I would hate to guess how many times we have simply had to stop and say 'Isn't this beautiful' over the last few weeks. This applies, not only to the amazing ambience of the local countryside, but also to the views from inside Applecroft.  Without doubt, my much travelled wife & I, together with our little dog, have just experienced our best holiday over - here, in Llanmadoc, and, in particular, in Applecroft.
Thank you Menna & Roger for enabling us to do so.

Ian & Chrissie Thomas & Rosie  Denia, Spain (16/08/14 - 14/09/14)

Had a lovely three days reacquainting ourselves with LLanmadoc. A few changes but much the same as we remember it from 35 years ago. Sand dunes and bach provide great walks with lots of interest. The holiday cottage is perfect, well equipped, comfortable and warm. Very much enjoyed the Welsh `goodies'. How did we manage to get two sunny day, calm days sandwiched between windy, wet days?Brilliant.

Great holiday with everything provided that you may need. Fantastic views which require binoculars on occasions! The local walk down to the beach is lovely and will get your heart pumping on the way back! Lovely touch to decorate the cottage ready for Christmas and the welcome treats were very much appreciated.
Fabulous place to stay, we cant fault it.

Great holiday cottage with fabulous views. We did some great walks particularly 
Worms Head , during which we saw a dolphin and its baby. The walk over Llanmadoc hill to Burry Holm via Blue Pool is well worth doing.  We loved Three Cliffs beach and highly recommend the Coal House Restaurant on Oxwich Beach really great and lamb.
