“The worst holiday cottage for years.”

We have to admit that the position of this small fishamans cottage was lovely, right on the beach and I can imagine for people with children it would be ideal to just open the door and let them play without having to go anywhere. For us it proved very different. The bathroom is downstairs and had it said that in the advert. we would never have booked it. Having got over that we settled in and took our cases up stairs. I am afraid that the state of the beds left much to be desired and the mattresses were not nice. Lucky for us we had taken our own pillows & duvets as nothing is provided in the way of bed linen or towels, only pillows and duvets which we would not have liked to use. We made up the bed best we could and my husband had to clammber over the bed to get into it later as there wasn't room each side of the bed. This cottage is recommended for 4 adults & 2 children. Having had cottages ourselves we know they are tight on space but had it been mine, 2 children and 2 adults would have been the maximum I would have recommended as there was little hanging space and no dressing table as such, just a mirror on a shelf which made drying my hair a pain. Many other problems soon became apparent. NO SHAVER POINTand water in the bathroom was by way of a small water heater found normally in a cloakroom, with hardly any coming out, no selves or cupboards to put things. Having moved into the kitchen we were greeted by an old fridge/freezer with rust on it. The next problem were 2 old deck chair like sofa's which worked like a deckchair. Trying to get comfortable in these was impossible, so spent most of the evening watching TV on some basket chairs. After 2 nights of this we decided enough was really enough so we packed up and came home. Having emailed the owner with our list of complaints we were told that only one other person had complained in 10 years, well what can I say, we were not offered any refund or I might say an apology. The owner admitted to one stain on the mattress herself, had she not seen the others and a couple of rips, obviously not. We lost our £375 and booking fee and feel extremly cross that people can let out these cottages when its very doubtful they would spend a day in them themselves. We never expected 5 star but neither did we expect 1 star. We left the cottage in a clean condition as we always would and were glad to be on our way.

Management Response

The guests arrived on Saturday and left on Monday without saying goodbye or telling me of their displeasure with the cottage. I was therefore unable to discuss a refund with them, but subsequently sent an email saying a cheque would be in the post. I find their comments unfair. A previous review was brilliant. I have been letting Hendafarn for a number of years and they are only the second people to complain. Most of my lets are to people who have been coming back to the cottage for a number of years. Hendafarn is a beautiful beachside cottage and does not deserve this criticism from people who happened to choose the wrong holiday accommodation for their needs.

We arrived at Hendafarn on a beautiful hot sunny day....the drive across the beach to reach our front door was quite exciting, taking care not to disturb the familys enjoying a day at the beach.
Jane Spencer (the owner) greeted us and showed us around our charming, rustic holiday home for the week.
We unloaded the car as quickly as possible as the sea was calling us to come for a paddle.
We did not leave for 48 hrs and only then to get more supplies.
The week flew by very quickly. We loved this holiday and were made very welcome by Jane the owner.
Cannot wait for our next visit !!
