About Richard Nash
My childhood was full of freedom, sunshine, fresh air, of being near the sea, beaches and big open skies. Having lived in London and Bristol for many years, I would yearn to be back and would be happy to spend time trekking in and out to get those few precious days on or near the coast and return home relaxed and replenished. It has been a long term ambition to be within a stones throw of the beach and the sea and one day I just woke up and thought it's time to make this happen - so, as they say, 'Where there's a will there's a way' and it has proved to be one of the best decisions I've ever made!

Comfortable and cosy
It’s always a pleasure to stay in either Amelia cottage or Caedolau, both are quirky and have lots of character. We’ve stayed numerous occasions in both cottages and they never fail. Always lovely and clean with attention to detail on arrival and would we’d recommend to anyone for a relaxing break.
Beautiful, tastefully decorated cottage with a fabulous garden
Six of us (plus our dog) stayed here for a long weekend .We enjoyed snuggly nights in front of the log fire. Will return in warmer months to take advantage of that garden. Big thanks to the lovely host, Richard who was very understanding when he found us still established in the cottage because I had thought I'd booked in for an extra night (whoops). Highly recommended
No problem Toni - it was a good opportunity to meet you and look forward to a return visit!
Best wishes - Richard
The property was ideal for all of us including Alfie the dog. Very clean and in excellent condition
This holiday home was ideal for us. In excellent condition it made an ideal base for walking along the coastal path and along the beaches. The car didnt move for four days as there was plenty for us to walk to. Very friendly people and a smashing dog friendly pub.
Very comfortable and well docorated cottage
Had a great week at Amelia Cottage, loved the stylish decor and comfortable beds - slept so well for the entire week! It was relaxing to come home to such lovely surroundings at the end of our days out. Walked the dog on the beach several mornings and evenings - quick and easy to get to. lovely area of Wales to visit - stand-out days for me were a circular walk on the Gower Peninsula (from a book in the cottage) and a visit to the National Botanical Gardens of Wales. Only slight issue in the cottage was the bathroom being downstairs and so close to the kitchen but I have nevertheless already recommended the accommodation and location to friends.
Beautiful cottage in an ideal setting
We found Amelia cottage an ideal holiday home for our family of 5, including 2 teenagers and a large Labrador! We stayed for 3 weeks and enjoyed every moment. Burry Port is a great location in itself, but also as a base to travel around South Wales and experience everything it has to offer. Richard could not have been more welcoming, with milk and wine and welsh cakes and also invaluable advice about the area. I can recommend Amelia cottage as comfy, clean and safe, especially with a large dog, and will definitely be rebooking to visit this lovely area again.
A great property!
A lovely cosy and spacious property. Close to all amenities and beaches. The dogs loved the garden which is very safe for them.
Would definitely recommend!
