What can I say? everything you could want for is in the fantastic little house. The owners have REALLY thought of everything you could want, even washing powder which came in handy.The sand dunes are at your back gate, and it is a short walk along the dunes to a huge sandy beach, which our 2 Labradors thoroughly adored. Staying this late in the year it gets dark early, Denise had gone in earlier, and put the heating and lights on for us, and left some Milk and really yummy biscuits, which Hubby ate most of !!! ( There is also a treat jar for dogs ) so we cooked tea and settled down with Netflix which is on the T.V and enjoyed some films. There is also wi-fi and codes are in the very informative information folder !! The sun shone for us and we even had lunch in the garden on one day. I highly recommend this property and we will definitely being going back, more than once. It was also very nice that Denise contacted us by email and phone beforehand, and texted when we arrived, she was also on hand if we had any problems.
Truly is out of back gate and onto sand dunes and then a wide expanse of beach.
Children and dogs will love it.
We didn't have a dog and had two teenagers but we loved it too.
Porthcawl would be a bit far on foot along beach for me and I think young children.
Would opt to drive or cycle.
Local pub/restaurant , Jolly Sailor, easy 10 minute walk.Very nice and welcoming.Also pub Ancient Briton seems to have live music frequently on a Saturday night.
8 Bell ringing in Norman Church on a Monday night(7pm I think) They seem happy to let a visitor watch them practice.
Lan y Mor has all you need for comfort during your stay and Denise is very friendly and would sort any problem should one occur.
Have no problem recommending for a relaxing break.
We stayed at ar lan y mor in March and it's a lovely little house that backs onto the sand dunes in Newton, with the sea a short stroll away. We were met by the owners who went out of their way to check we were happy and had everything we needed, even leaving some Welsh cakes and snacks! The house itself was clean and well kept and the back garden was secure and great for our little puppy, the owners were even understanding when he chewed the corner of their magazine rack. Porthcawl town centre can be walked to along the sand dunes and Newton itself has a few pubs and nature walks to discover, I'd definitely recommend ar lan y mor as a place to stay!
This is the second year we have stayed for a weekend at Ar Lan Y Mor. It's location for access to the dunes and beach is excellent. Walk to the end of the garden, through the gate, through another gate and you are on the dunes. A few minutes later you're on the beach. The house itself is a nice compact two bedroom, parking for a car out the front, in a quiet location. The living room opens out to the garden through French doors which allowed our puppy to roam around, chase a ball, etc...
It's a great place to come to for a weekend away with our dog, he loves the beach. The owner Denise made us feel nothing was any hassle, and could always be reached on the phone/email.
