About Gwaun View

A year round retreat - Gwaun View is a charming pet friendly Pembrokeshire cottage with wifi in the Gwaun Valley.

  • Enjoy peace and quiet in this pet friendly holiday home - a delightful terraced cottage, thoughtfully re-designed to offer open plan living for up to 4 guests in the pretty countryside village of Llanychaer, known locally as 'Hillside'.
  • The open plan living area (on the 1st floor) is the star of this property with stunning valley views to be enjoyed. Beautifully lit through huge glass sliding doors that perfectly frame the view. Open them up, sit, relax and enjoy the peace and tranquillity with the sound of the babbling river and a symphony of birdsong.
  • Both bedrooms (one of which is en-suite) are on the ground floor along with a modern bathroom and utility room.
  • Cosy and warm in the Winter (the property benefits from underfloor heating and modern central heating), but perfect for the Spring and Summer months when you can open up the glass sliding doors and let the outdoors in.
  • The outdoor slate gravelled terrace enjoys day long sunshine and is an enclosed space for children and dogs (3'6'' high fence).
  • There are lovely walks right from the doorstep within the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park,its perfect country for walkers - the Gwaun Valley is a timeless treasure and a haven for wildlife - buzzards, red kites, dippers, herons and kingfishers on the river.
  • If you love to wake up to the sound of birdsong and look out onto beautiful valley views, you will love it here.

It was a well equipped cottage with many facilities including washing machine and dryer. It was also spacious and warm. The countryside was stunning with several walks in the area. The only downside for us was the uncomfortable mattresses.

Reply from: Quality Cottages Team

Sorry to hear you had problems with the mattress but delighted that you enjoyed your stay at Gwaun View.

Reply from: Quality Cottages Team

The owner has contacted us to say that the mattress has been replaced following your comments.

The cottage was in a fantastic location and it was very accessible to a lot of places. It was very modern and tastefully decorated. We absolutely loved the bi-fold doors!Just a few negatives.Cleaning - The kitchen/lounge floor was not very clean on arrival/a bucket of water and a mop was left in the kitchen and the hoover attachment was covered in dog hair. There were no cleaning products at the property - we have stayed in a lot of self-catering properties and they have always provided cleaning products.The Property - almost perfect except for the mattresses especially in the twin room. Very, very soft. OK for one night but not a week.The ensuite bathroom had a problem with damp as by the end of the week it did not smell very nice - very overpowering. I think this had been mentioned in a review by a previous holidaymaker.

Reply from: Quality Cottages Team

Thank you for your review and comments which we have sent onto the owner, glad that you loved the location.

Reply from: Quality Cottages Team

From the owner:- Thank you for your review we are now in the process of replacing the mattresses. With regards to the cleaning, there are cleaning materials under the sink for guests use including dishwasher tablets, the mop and bucket should have been put away in the cupboard (apologies for this), the ensuite has an extractor fan which we ask guests to use so there should be no problem. We employ weekly cleaners and have not encountered any problems in the past but thank you for your feedback.

The cottage was well designed and decorated and was a wonderful setting for us and our dog. The upstairs living space made best use of the views.

Pros: A beautiful, spotlessly clean house with everything you could need in the kitchen.Beautiful walks from the doorstep. Fishguard has good eateries, royal oak and hooked at 31. Parking is in a layby up the road and is not always available, but there is room down by the pub.Cons: the mattress was not the best, the ensuite has a damp issue which smells worse as the week goes on and the underfloor heating was locked and we genuinely never felt it on at any time. Take slippers as slate floors at midnight is not funny.All said and done we would be back in a heartbeat

We booked a last minute break. We've had a really lovely time. Some lovely walks along the coastal path and also right from the doorstep. Been down to the pub early evening for a pint or two. Nice property. Love this part of Wales and will most definitely be back to explore more of this magical area.

A comfortable place to stay with all we needed. Very lucky with the weather so able to do so much. Lots of walking through stunning scenery. Definitely an area to come back to,

Great base from which to get out and explore. We have visited lots of beaches, we particularly like Pwllgwaelod and the Sailors pub. Lovely woodland walk from here along the stream and over the bridge. Our Daughter loved the bug farm for a hands on experience of some great creepy crawlies. Saw loads of birds out of the large sliding doors.Plenty of dog friendly places around, pubs, and beaches. Great stay.

What an amazing spot in beautiful Pembrokeshire. The cottage is to die for ? the most stunning views and beautifully restored and furnished. We loved everything about the village, the people, the cottage, and the views and would love to come back. ??The village pub is great with a fabulous warm welcome and great food. ??.Probably the best cottage we've ever stayed in.

What a lovely cottage. We loved it here and the corner doors were the perfect place to enjoy a glass of red at the end of a busy day.
