Why you love Yr Hen Gof
Thoroughly enjoyed a far too short week staying in "The Old Smithy" ,a beautifully restored building reflecting the history of Mathry. Tina and Antony have been more then perfect hosts and my sister and I have thoroughly enjoyed you sharing of your home. The personalised welcome was a pleasant surprise. We will miss your beautiful family when we return to Australia. Thank goodness for Facebook! I will return!
Mrs Hutton, Broom, Australia
Had a fantastic time, walking round Dina's Head, Strumble Head. Visited St David's, loved the cathedral. Visited Solva, lunched in loads of pubs including The Sloop in Porthgain, The Ship Inn in Trefin and best of all The Farmers Arms 100 yards from the cottage. Hardly sat still since we got here, ourselves and our two spaniels will be going back to Suffolk for a well earned rest, sadly! Thank you for a lovely stay.
Mr Rothery
The cottage has more than lived up to our expectations, cosy, spacious and well equipped. Log burner brought back fond memories. Had a lovely stay, diolch yn fawr. Ps. Thanks for the wine, nice touch!
Mr Weaver
A wonderful place to stay. Congenial hosts, lovely having the local just up the road, close enough to stagger home! Thoroughly enjoyed meeting the local population. Indeed worthwhile coming from Austalia to see all the scenery . Then apart from all the above we have finally met our relatives and they are gorgeous.
Mrs Dean, Australia
What a wonderful cottage. I wanted to take the kitchen home with me! Thank you for a lovely stay and for the welcoming wine and water for the dogs, very thoughtful. Thanks also Antony for the emergency fence, without it the girls would have eaten the chickens!
Mr, Mrs Broughton
What a warm and sunny welcome! It started with a drink in the garden and ended in the pub singing "Thank you for the music" together with the whole neighbourhood! So much fun-we love it!
Mr Salay, Germany
What a lovely place! Loved the piano,the local pub, the cottage and of course the sun. Such a warm welcome into your home from home gave us a wonderful holiday. We will miss the tranquility walks and beaches. Thank you!
Mr, Mrs Flice
Breathtaking cottage. My wife, 2 year old daughter and I had a great week, exploring the local surroundings.Yr Hen Gof is a perfect base, only a few miles from all the best beaches and coves.(Poppit Sands is a must if you have children it is stunning) The local pub which is a stones throw away from the cottage (Farmers Arrms) is well worth a visit for food and drinks. There was a very welcome bottle of wine, and I also bought some fresh eggs from Anthony and Tina, my daughter loved talking to their chickens, cat and also the new arrival the duck. This is quite simply a great cottage in a beautiful village its a must if you are going to Pembrokeshire.
