The property its self was amazing, as expected from the photos! The house was so well equipped with plenty of kitchen equipment, board games for the evenings actually felt like a home rather than a holiday home. There's a lovely little pub heading into St Dogmaels which is only about a 5min walk from the cottage called Ferry Inn, which had lovely staff who was very welcoming and helpful in suggesting places to go do & see. Would love to come back and stay again!

Great location for exploring north Pembrokeshire, we enjoyed walking from the cottage into St. Dogmaels via green lanes and footpaths, towards Poppit Sands and wandering down to the local Ferry Inn for a drink and food. We would recommend exploring the old Abbey ruins in St. Dogmaels. Bowens fish and chips in St. Dogmaels and Queens bakery in Cardigan are also worth a visit. The cottage is well equipped for eight people, the garden is lovely to sit in the sun, enjoy the view and watch the squirrels scampering around.

Thank you Natalie and Harry for letting us share your home from home once again. Each time we come here we find something new: this time it is the craft and produce market held every Saturday at the memorial hall in Aberaeron - many craft bargains on sale - well worth a visit and disabled access through the side door of the hall if needed. Vegan and vegetarian meals as well as normal fare at sensible prices at the Bunch of Grapes pub in Newcastle Emlyn - well behaved dogs welcomed with biscuits. Every time we come here we find something new and different: to wine and dine at reasonable prices; a foodies dream. Cannot wait for our next visit!

We have had a fabulous week. House has been great for all seven of us from grandma to grandchildren and partners. Loved Poppit sands, Cardigan, the Ferry Inn (great food) and walks. Fantastic views too!

Harry's family home is so lovely and felt like our own. Weather was gorgeous and the toddler loved it here! Tresaith beach recommended and farm overlooking Cardigan Island fab on a rainy day. Thanks and we will definitely return.

A lovely 2 week holiday with two sets of grandparents, 2 dogs, 2 children and us. This is our second stay here and our in-laws fourth stay! A wonderful home to enjoy, we don't want to leave! Crabbing at the pontoon, dinner and lunch at Ferry Inn. Dinner at Webley, boat trip was a day to remember, highly recommended - saw dolphins, seals and jellyfish! Cardigan Island farm park great day and lovely walk to see seals. Beaches - Tresaith - tricky parking but worth it! Mwnt, Poppit sands. we loved Pizza Tipi, sweet shop in town and used local pool and soft play on our one wet day in two weeks! The wildlife nature research was lovely, you can walk from Jewsons in Cardigan along the river. We had a wonderful evening toasting marshmallows and playing on the tree swing in the gorgeous grounds. Will be back - thank you!

Another lovely week at Estuary View. Good weather despite heavy rain as we are packing the car to leave :-(. Played Cardigan golf course again and still thrilled by the views and the challenge. Altogether another lovely week at Estuary View. Thank you.

A great week enjoying North Pembrokeshire. We enjoyed the lovely views from the cottage, inside and out, in the sunshine and showers. We recommend the walks from the track in front of the cottage, into St Dogmaels and the other way to Poppit sands. St Dogmaels abbey is worth exploring, as is Cardigan, although Cardigan castle does not allow dogs. We enjoyed fish and chips from Bowen's and on a separate day, 'The Shed' at Porthgain, both recommended although our Pembrokeshire number 1 remains The Marina in Saundersfoot. A lovely cottage in a great location, thank you.

Perfect short break in a beautiful place. Cardigan wild life park wetland boardwalk is excellent, the longest we've done. St Davids visitor centre to Porthclais circular walk a firm favourite. Obligatory ice cream in St Davids. Newport Parrog skimming stones, Tesco and Pizza deliveries and nice meal in Ferry Inn. Cottage spacious comfortable and warm, very loud geese and owls add to the character. Just off to Teifi Cheese to stock up on the way home. The weather has been excellent and mild, many thanks.

We have had a very enjoyable week in this lovely, well equipped house. we felt very much at home. Weather mixed, but we did have some sunshine, which was a bonus at this time of year. Filled the bird feeders and have seen a wide variety of birds visiting, have left some feed in the utility room: will be back!

Beautiful house. Beautiful views. Plenty of room for all seven of us, our granddaughter and 2 British bulldogs who thoroughly enjoyed the gardens. Estuary views are stunning, log fire just an added bonus. To sum it up: FANTASTIC. Will be back next year. Plus watched Wales - gutted they lost!

We have had a delightful week here at Estuary View, what a find! This was our first visit to this part of West Wales and we have been trilled by its natural beauty. The weather has been magnificent, which tempted us to spend a lot of time on the terrace enjoying the fabulous views and the long days. We played golf at The Cardigan twice - possibly my best round ever on a well maintained and challenging course. We went to the Coracle Centre and learnt a lot about the River Teifi and it's environs. Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful cottage - we are already feeling tempted to return.

Thanks again for a glorious stay in your beautiful cottage - our third time here and it definitely won't be the last I am sure! We did lots of coastal path hiking, lying on the beach (fabulous weather!) and went kayaking with 'adventure beyond' - thoroughly recommend you take a trip with Rod! Also recommend checking the Skona twitter feed before you attempt to catch the boat.... we may have neglected to do this and the boats were not running...but if you end up stranded at Martins Haven there is a spectacular walk around the peninsula! Thanks so much for another truly heavenly week :) Lots of love

We had yet another fabulous week here, with mostly beautiful sunny weather. Lots of beach days (Penbryn, Tresaith and Poppit Sands). Games of rounders and 'bit-bat'. Zootropolis at the cinema in Cardigan on one of the more rainy days. Met up with good friends and neighbours at St Dogmael's market and all met up again for supper at the Ferry Inn. I think one of the highlights was going to the Dyfed riding centre and having an hour introductory lesson with the horse-whisperer (Terence). Thank you so much for letting us have yet another Lawrence family holiday! Lots of love

Had a wonderful week, wandering around the area and enjoying the stunning scenery. We went to the Shire horse centre, which was a surprisingly fun family day out. We jogged (and some drove) to Poppit Sands and enjoyed a lovely jaunt by the sea and a couple of times we visited Cardigan and stocked up on pick 'n' mix from the sweet shop. Lovely house. Lovely area.

Thank you for a wonderful stay. We had the most fantastic week, the house is so comfortable and relaxing - the perfect spot from which to explore and return to for yummy meals. You have thought of everything that is needed. Some recommend outings: Beaches - Mwnt, Tresaith, Poppit Sands and LLangrannog. Trips - boat trip from Newquay (crabs, dolphins and dogfish!), Cardigan island coastal farm (mad pigs and seals!) Eating - Ferry Inn, Tuesday market at St Dogmaels - yummy crab! Thanks!!

What a fab cottage, everything you could want. Jack the Collie loves the garden and sea. We should have called him Flipper! BBQ most evenings. Walked to all the bays, had a great time. Hope to come again soon. Weather great!

I really liked the house, especially with a beach next to it. The board games are really fun, my favourite one was Monopoly because me and my family were playing it nearly every night! Also the DUD's are really good, anyway I loved the house!

Especially memorable family reunion with the Mercers & Kings from Weymouth to this wonderful setting. We enjoyed the house enormously with a log fire in the evenings and the local walks in some glorious weather. We're off to Co' Armagh to spread the word!!
