Quaint cosy and very warm. Equipped with everything you could want. Underfloor heating and log burner meant never cold. Master with en suite bathroom and second bedroom with wet room. Ideal property for dogs as walks in every direction upon leaving property and stream for cooling dips. We loved it.

The cottage is undoubtedly attractive and in a beautiful peaceful rural location but with quick access to the coast ,St David's and Cardigan.There is a framed award in the cottage for the quality of the restoration and it IS lovely BUT ....... A lovely wood burner is nice ( and necessary - even in May the cottage was chilly) but why are there no tools ? Hard to keep a wood fire going with no poker!! There is no information anywhere about refuse collection and recycling.The kitchen is tired and poorly equipped-- the smallest thinnest plastic 'chopping board' I've ever seen and a breadboard on which only the smallest loaf could fit.A random assortment of mismatched glasses and a 12 person cafetiere which is hopeless for 2/4 .The whole thing sadly left an overall impression of meanness- my husband and I bought four decent matching wine glasses and four fizz glasses in Morrisons in Haverfordwest for 7 !!!.Perhaps it's been a while since housekeeping cast a critical eye over things but it's something that needs to be done regularly.

Reply from: Quality Cottages Team

Thank you for your comments, we have spoken to the owner today, her response is below:- The whole of the ground floor has underfloor heating which can be controlled by guests so no one should be cold. Instructions will be added regarding recycling and new chopping boards added. There are plenty of glasses and the cafetiere was replaced by previous guests who broke the original one.

Beautifully finished, really clean and the location was superb. The wifi was also really good, considering the location. They also have a great range of board games available!

In more than 30 years of holidays in various regions of England and Wales, this cottage is the one that we will be most reluctant to leave. It has just about got everything that we love most. It has more than lived up to our expectations. A cosy, warm and interesting house in amongst woodland, streams and hills. It has been a truly wonderful week and the cottage and wonderful walk in your woods just what we love. We will be recommending it to family for sure. Thank you so much for the wine and cakes.

Fantastic cottage! The perfect holiday with great dog walks. Loved Newgale beach. Superb fish and chip shops, 'The Shed' Porthgain, is highly recommended. Saw dolphins from the harbour wall at New Quay (1 hour away). Had fun spotting bats at night.

Lyn & Ian Kerfoot, Ashton Under Lyne, Lancashire
1st July 2013

A very pretty cottage. Very relaxing, in lovely setting. Interesting wildlife, red kites, kingfisher and owl. Can't believe our luck with the weather. 13 days of sunshine! Lovely beaches - Newport and the two little bays between Dinas Cross & Newport idyllic. New Quay good for dolphin spotting and good restaurants overlooking sea. The Hungry Trout does an excellent lobster salad. Thank you for the welcome gifts and a wonderful holiday.

The Dyffryn Arms, Pontfaen

  • Enjoy the experience of taking the short walk up the valley to the characterful Dyffryn Arms - a pub known locally as 'Bessie's' - serving real ale from a jug. New Year is still celebrated here (and in the rest of the Gwaun Valley) on January 12th according to the ancient Julian Calendar.

Preseli Hills

  • Do visit Pembrokeshire's highest landscape, the wild and beautiful Preseli Hills. The rolling patchwork of moor, heath and grasslands, dotted with remote homesteads and ancient relics rise 536m above sea level and provide wonderful opportunities for walking with glorious views at every turn.

Cwm yr Eglwys Valley of the Church

  • A stream running through the valley tumbles over rocks at the shore with a secret sandy beach visible at low tide. Bathing is safe and there is a slipway for launching small craft. The village takes its name from the ruined 12th century church by the beach which was abandoned after storm damage in the mid 1800's.

Newport's bustling Coastal Village

  • A little further up the coast is the bustling coastal village of Newport with 2 beaches, a sailing club and a links golf course. There is a good range of interesting shops, cafes and restaurants as well as pubs, a bank, post office, mini-market chemist, doctors' surgery and filling station.

Boat Trips

  • No trip to Pembrokeshire is complete without a visit to the wildlife rich offshore islands. Boats leave for Skomer from Martins Haven on the Marloes peninsula. Expect stunning coastal scenery myriad seabirds including thousands of comical puffins, manx sheerwaters, gannets and more as well as an abundance of seals. More boats leave from St Justinians near St Davids to visit rugged Ramsey Island RSPB.
