About the property

Sleeps 5; 1 triple and 1 single bedroom, shower room, small kitchen and patio

Situated in a beautiful conservation area on the unspoilt coast of West Wales, Hill House overlooks the village of Llansteffan, recently voted Wales' best kept secret. Hill House offers a peaceful spot for holidays and therapeutic breaks for those seeking rest, recuperation, and self catering accommodation.

To maintain a peaceful environment no children under 6 are catered for in the main house; young children and dogs are welcome in the Garden Apartment, which is approached by a series of steps at the side of the house. There is an outdoor patio area which leads onto an orchard and woodland, and the apartment has its own entrance. Next door is a pasture where sheep often graze.

There is internet access throughout the house, and the Garden Apartment has a DVD player. To maintain a quiet environment there are no radios or televisions in the rooms.

The Garden Apartment is simply decorated with wood furniture. The triple bedroom has a double and single bed with a chest of drawers; the small single bedroom has a small chest of drawers. The living area has a dining table for four, an armchair and lamp, and there is a small sofabed suitable for a child. In addition to a shower room, there is a small kitchen with a counter top unit with two burners and an oven, as well as a microwave, toaster, electric kettle and fridge.

For young visitors, the beach of Llansteffan is justly famous and can be enjoyed year round. There is a large medieval castle overlooking the beach which can be seen from the house.

About Lance Burns

We fell in love with Hill House and the Llansteffan views four years ago. I retired from the IT sector and my wife works as an art historian. We enjoy having family and friends to stay.

Lance Burns purchased this apartment in 2013

Why Lance Burns chose Llansteffan

Location, Location , Location!!

Great views, sea side location, unspoiled natural surroundings near many historic villages, the National Botanic Gardens of Wales, and the West Wales coastal path.

Also it is mid 19th century and has very high beautiful ceilings.

What makes this apartment unique

Very tranquil environment in an unspoiled, traditional village.

The house is an historic Victorian villa.

It is easy to get to, being half an hour beyond the end of the M4.

lovely little village

  • 4 of 5

I stayed in garden apartment with my wife and our dog, apartment could do with some work done, bathroom floor with damp next to the shower, but that didn't put us off. Comfortable beds, owner very nice and friendly. Walking distance to beutiful beach and Castle. Be careful driving up the hill going to the apartment,very narrow. Llansteffan is an excellent place to stay and relax, very quite, just what we needed.

Quiet town for anyone looking for a peaceful holiday

  • 3 of 5

A quiet town for anyone looking for a peaceful holiday but not for those (like us) who wanted some evening life also! We ate at the Castle Inn on our 1st night which was pricey but the food was just okay. The next day it was my 50th and we were going to eat at the Sticks Hotel that night but it was closed - so we decided to drive to the nearest town where the boys bought Dominos pizza and I bought a flan from Morrisons to take back to the apartment for dinner! We came to Llansteffan for a family holiday, with our dog, for my 50th birthday. Llansteffan is a quiet town and we loved the beach which also was not very busy so we were able to leave our dog off lead. The furnishings were dated - especially in our kitchen and the main communal kitchen - but useable. I stayed in the Garden Apartment with my husband, 2 boys (20 and 15 yrs old) and our german shepherd. We had problems with the shower on our 1st evening - water kept going cold and scalding hot, areal health & safety hazard. We called Lance (the owner) who advised that we should use the shower in one of the other apartments, which we did. The following day, Lance did some work on the filter and sorted out the problematic shower.

Owner's Response: The guests were hoping for nightlife in a quiet tranquil village... a little odd. The furnishings are suitable for an old house and modern would not suit. Also the Alsatian was rather aggressive and had to be restrained. Not suitable if other guests are around. Not sure why they chose a tranquil village.
