Our two families have been going on holidays together for 20 years all over the UK and Joyful House is just about the best property we have ever visited! There wasn't one thing that we could fault.The place is huge - the kitchen in particular is such a nice place to hang out and chat and the master bedroom is stunning. The attention to detail and quality of everything is second to none.The beds were super comfortable and the showers were better that the ones on our house and there is a huge garden with stunning views (sunsets are a bit special). WiFi was fast enough even with 9 people using it. The area is beautiful. A beautiful beach 20 minutes drive and stunning coastal walks.This will be our No. 1 choice again when we revisit St. David's area.

Could be a 5 star review, but was let down by having to clean the house due to cobwebs and dirty floors.
