Luxurious and comfortable house. Great views and we had great weather. Great base for K to go sea kayaking and good spot for seniors to explore at a more leisurely place all the little coastal bays. I want to take the sun room and its view home with me.

Thank you! We had an absolutely fantastic holiday in this beautiful, perfectly located and well resourced house. Even the weather smiled at us throughout. We will be back! Thank you, too, for the great welcome pack and advice.

A superb cottage, stunning views and great location. We were blessed with wonderful weather so made full use of the patio area and sun room. What a sun trap!! Many thanks for presenting the cottage so perfectly and the lovely touch of the wine etc on arrival. We wanted for nothing as you thought of everything one would need.

Pure luxury in abundance A week's stay in the wonderful, luxurious cottage that is Rocket Cottage, has truly left an indelible mark. The enormity of the cottage together with its furnishings exceeded our expectations and you are truly spoilt with what is provided added with the sheer comfort. In my opinion, the Pembrokeshire coastline (not forgetting the entire Welsh coastline) is quite possibly the very best in the world and a wee bit of that can be seen from Rocket Cottage. The conservatory area provides a perfect spot to admire the views on a 'not so good day' but when the weather is very friendly, the terrace area is the place to be. The cottage is on a road but please do not be put off by that. Essentially, the road accesses the nearby hotel but I can assure you traffic is very, very much to a minimum- almost negligible. The cottage also overlooks a relatively small ferry port but again, the volume of comings and goings is nothing to worry about.. Oh, and the odd train does pass by, occasionally. These last few observations are not to be deemed as negatives but merely demonstrates what the location is all about. There are not enough superlatives to describe this cottage. As one person wrote in the visitors book - "I want to live here". What more is there to say!!.......enjoy

Wow, wow, wow. A fantastic house in a fantastic part of the world with lovely friendly welcoming people. The ideal place for a week away. St Davids, Newport, Strumble Head and Dinas Head all amazing. Country Kitchen / Farmhouse is a must. Sweet potato fries yumsk. Definitely coming back, hardly scratched the surface here. Lovely house, lovely place.

Another fantastic week, great weather for most of it. Rocket Cottage as previous year, FAB. Boys had a great time on Whitesands. Excellent base to visit family. Country Kitchen just 5 minutes is a must for all day breakfast.

excellent value for money

Barbara Lavin - 13th October 2018

Comfortable beds, great views and everything was provided.

Derek Young - 24th September 2018

lovely spacious place with great views. wonderfully equipped kitchen. Very comfortable and attractive furnishings. the twin room is a little tight on space, and the soundproofing of the living area above the ground floor double room is not great - but these are very minor issues!

Judith Main - 11th July 2018


Larry Coulston - 1st July 2018

The Cottage was absolutely stunning and suited our requirements perfectly. It was exceptionally clean with a high level of finish and the welcome gifts were a nice touch. The first floor sun lounge and terrace offered views over the sea and it was easy to access the Pembrokeshire coastal path, in both directions, from the Cottage. We would recommend this Cottage to family and friends.
