The cottage is beautiful and really spacious. Everything in it - kitchen equipment, bed linen - is of the highest quality. The garden looks like it will be a real little sun trap in the summer and you can glimpse the castle from the far end. The castle is stunning. Tenby is very near and lovely. I would definitely come back
