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.

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.

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.

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!

Ben Latimer - 8th August 2018

The lodge was just very nice placs to stay

Sue Edwards - 6th May 2018

The cottage is beautifully renovated with special attention to all the finishes,it was perfect for all our needs. The under floor heating is great eapecualyon those cold mornings in March, our dog loved it. The kitchen had everything you would need including sharp knives and a sharpener, this is often over looked in a lot of holiday accomadation it’s that attention to detail that makes this cottage different. The owners are extremely friendly and happy to help if you need anything as they live just up the hill. Phone signal can be a problem but we found walking up the footpath for 50yards usually meant you got a signal, the WiFi in the cottage is a good speed. This is the first cottage I would like to make a return visit.

Preseli Hills

Newport's bustling Coastal Village
