Guest Book Comments

This delightful abode has been basking in sunshine for the entire week. We have lit fires on chilly evenings, played frisbee and read books on the lawn and enjoyed sun sets in the distance from the patio chairs. The cosy cottage has served well from the kitchen with its range of utensils afording us the chance to bake cakes and make sushi. The lounge has been an evening retreat where we have read, played games and watched the odd movie. The bathroom and bedrooms have been superb. This really is a well prepared cosy cottage with a warm feel. Our time out has been walking the coastal path as well as inlandinthe Preselis, the Gwaun Valley taking in the vistas and brisk spring air. A fabulous time has been had by us.

Forecast for the week was not good but it has been better than expected and we managed most of the planned visits and walks although the walk from Abermawr was very muddy.We have enjoyed the comfort of your cottage which is ideally situated for exploring the coast from St Davids to Fishguard and peaceful without being isolated. As you said the Square and compass shop was well stocked. Wine and welcome phone call, nice touches. Appreciated the follow up calls about heating.Thank you for your concern. Many thanks, a lovely week away from it all.

The Scott family enjoyed two weeks here - had a wonderful stay and week was fairly kind to us. Cabin needs a new clothes line, more bulbs , serving spoons and a Skybox would make it absolutely perfect.

Thank you for a lovely few days staying at the cabin. Such a lovely place to come back to after a long days walk. Warm, cosy and well equipped. Shame we didn't get to spend more time relaxing here! We both had some of the best nights sleep in very comfortable beds. The cabin was hard to find on the first night arriving in the dark so maybe clever directions or a lit park would be appreciated. Hope to visit again soon.

A delightful location. We love the log cabin so secluded and peaceful yet minutes from the bay of Cwm yr Eglwys - the perfect place to relax and recharge the batteries. We love Pembs - a great county.

Very disappointed with the property for the cost.

It was a last minute booking and negotiations about the fee seemed reasonable.
