Amazing setting, beautiful cottage, a wonderful place to stay. Fantastic setting for our first family holiday. Cottage has everything, is very comfortable and such a beautiful setting. Colby Woodland Gardens were beautiful It's well worth walking through the garden down to the beach. If you visit there is very good ice-cream too. Tenby was lovely. Tudor Merchant's House very interesting, learned lots of facts about origins of sayings. Beaches all around are stunning and often we were the only ones on them. The utility sink made a good makeshift bath for our 16 month old. Thank you for a wonderful stay.

What can we say? Absolutely beautiful accommodation & setting. We were so lucky with the weather all week! The lodge has some really thoughtful touches and attention to detail – literally nothing we could fault. Our 2nd time in Wales, great coastal walking from Llansteffan, another nice walk from the lodge, left out of the drive & follow the coastal signs down to the T junction. Very lucky to meet Ruth, Jeremy & the boys who showed wonderful hospitality.

Llanybri lodge is an idyllic location and comfortable place to stay. I would recommend investing in a new sofa, very uncomfortable and feathers coming out everywhere. It was a lovely holiday and a great place.

J Regan - 26th May 2018

Lovely location. Great that was dog friendly but misunderstood the utility room and thought you could bring your dog in that way and dry off before entering main house but you couldn't.
