The cottage is thoughtfully renovated and sits in a lovely location, although when the sun isnt shining, it is quite dark; lights were needed on all the time.We only had a couple of reservations, but quite important ones for a good nights sleep.The mattresses were very thin and we feel they needed to be replaced. We both ended up with sore backs and had to try all the beds to see if any were better.We also found the table and benches in the kitchen quite hard to get in to. I think with 4 guests staying it would be very cramped.There is also no instruction manual with information about recycling bins, heating or wood burner.this would have been useful.

Fantastic location, well equipped cottage. Friendly local pub, shame it didn't do food! A dog's paradise, and great for us too.

Guestbook Comments

If you've ever visited a holiday cottage before, you most likely have seen a guestbook in the property for guests to leave a review for others when they arrive. Each of the following comments was lovingly left by people just like you in the guestbook left at Court Lodge.

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.

About the Area

If you would like more information on the local area, please call us on 01348 837871 to speak to one of our friendly team.

Gwaun Valley Wildlife Haven and the Dyffryn Arms

  • Perfect country for walkers - the Gwaun Valley is a timeless treasure and a haven for wildlife - buzzards, red kites, dippers, herons, kingfishers and perhaps a shy otter in the river.

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.

Pembrokeshire Coastal Path

  • Just a couple of miles away join the Pembrokeshire Coastal Path where 168 miles of wonderful coastal scenery stretches east towards Dinas and Newport and west to Strumble Head and St Davids.

'Poppit Rocket'

  • Forget the car and take a ride on the 'Poppit Rocket' a coastal bus service which wends its way along the coast all the way to Cardigan passing through villages and beside beaches along the way.

Fishguard Market Town

  • Visit Fishguard - a quaint little market town raved about in the 2007 Lonely Planet Guide - with its Farmers Market, cinema and interesting individual shops - just 2.5 miles away.

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.

Penlan Uchaf Gardens - plants and home baking

  • Penlan Uchaf Gardens in the Gwaun Valley offer you stunning views across the Preseli Hills and are a restful retreat from the stresses of life. Your enjoyment of the gardens will be enhanced by tea and home-baked cake in the Conservatory at the Penlan Uchaf Farmhouse. If you love gardens also visit Dyffryn Fernant at Llanychaer and Bro Meigan at Boncath.

Outdoor Activities on the Pembrokeshire Coast

  • The Pembrokeshire coastline is the perfect venue for outdoor activities. Celtic Quest offer you adventure swimming, plunging into the sea from high rocks, rock hopping and more. Kayak King in Fishguard offer day trips exploring the rugged Pembrokeshire coast with its diverse wildlife.

Family Days Out

  • For fun family days out in Pembrokeshire there are plenty of quality leisure parks and attractions to choose from. Castell Henllys Iron Age settlement, Scolton Manor Museum, Picton Castle, Manor Wildlife Park, Oakwood, Folly Farm, and Heatherton are all within an easy drive.

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.

This luxury lodge makes a wonderful base in the Gwaun Valley for exploring Pembrokeshire at any time of the year.
