About Sue Crowle

We are a family from Cardiff who like to spend time away from the city in the peace and quiet of west Wales, where the pace of life is very relaxing.

Sue Crowle purchased this chalet in 2003

Why Sue Crowle chose Carmarthenshire

We spent a couple of years holidaying in west Wales and fell in love with the area. When we were fortunate enough to take up the opportunity to buy a chalet, we were delighted with our decision. We've had years of happy experiences and memories exploring the beautiful coastline and local attractions. Why the name Milkwood for the chalet? This is the wonderful landscape that inspired Dylan Thomas, the writer of Under Milkwood, who lived close by in Laugharne.

What makes this chalet unique

We loved the fact the chalet site is on a river estuary, close to the seaside village of Llansteffan, which boasts a medieval castle and the tranquil Scott's Bay. We can jump in the car and in a couple of minutes, we're in Llansteffan for a country walk, play on the beach or sitting eating ice cream, taking in the sea view. Fantastic.

Elmrise Park, Llansteffan

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our May bank holiday week in Elmrise Park, Llansteffan. The chalet was very comfortable and had everything we needed, a real home from home! It was so peaceful and tranquil and the people in the park were all very friendly and the kids made many new friends. We really enjoyed visiting nearby Llansteffan beach which is ideal for the kids and we also visited Folly Farm and a few of the castles. We hope to visit again soon.

Charming chalet in a quiet location, ideally situated for exploring the area.

  • 4 of 5

Lovely quiet park in a lovely location. Ideally situated for exploring the area. Chalet had everything we needed with lovely extra touches as well. Visited Folly Farm Zoo and Adventure Park, The Wales National Show Caves, Llansteffan castle and beach, Saundersfoot beach, Llawhaden castle, Pembrey Country Park beach and went horse trekking there too. Would highly recommend all as places to visit! Unfortunately as our English Easter school holidays were a week early a lot of activities were closed, so always phone before you go, but there was still plenty to do and my 12 and 15 year old children said the week went really quickly. (Unfortunately my son was fascinated by the pound coins going into the electric meter, I'm sure he was using more electricity than usual just so that he could top it up!) Thank you for a wonderful holiday, many happy memories to take away with us.

Quiet, well-located and self contained chalet

  • 5 of 5

Very cosy chalet, well equipped with all you need for a nice stay. We really appreciated the little touches from the owner (welsh cakes, fresh flowers, milk in the fridge); it made us feel very welcome.

The site was nice and quiet. It is very conveniently located, with lovely beaches not too far, as well as lots of attractions and places to visit. Some very lovely walks as well not far from the property, means there is something for everyone to enjoy.

We would highly recommend staying here.

Clean, comfortable, owner very helpful, great value

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this chalet for a week in August 2016.The owner was extremely helpful, nothing was too much trouble.The cleaning lady was also very helpful and obliging. Every home comfort/necessity had been carefully thought out and provided (even down to toys for the kids to play with, buckets/spades etc).We only wished we had stayed longer.Will definitely return.
