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

See my review of the holidayabove.

Philip Rigby - 20th October 2018

The cottage was beautifully clean and well presented, with wonderful views. The only disappointment was that for many years of staying in cottages, we have become accustomed to arriving to a welcome, starter pack of a few goodies, such as tea, coffee and sometimes a cake or bottle of wine, which is always appreciated after a long journey.

A trusted customer - 15th September 2018

Everything we needed for a great holiday. Accommodation was spotless and to a very high standard. Floor to ceiling windows gave a great view of the valley and was a lovely place to sit and watch the wildlife with a glass of wine.

Carolyn Johnson - 31st January 2018

What a beautiful cottage! We loved the cottage from the moment we arrived. Gwaun View, Hillside is a gorgeous cottage, extended & restored to a high standard. Spotlessly clean, really well equipped, comfortable & homely. A spectacular view over the valley which can be enjoyed from the gardens and from the splendid floor to ceiling glass opening doors in the fabulous open-plan living area on the first floor. The hosepipe outside was perfect for rising off our walking boots and muddy paws. Plus, the layout of the utility room was ideal for being able to sort ourselves after our walks in the great outdoors. The pooches could be washed, dried and brushed without having to enter the main part of the house. The cottage is in a great location for exploring Pembrokeshire: Gwaun Valley, Newgale, Solva, St David's, Broad Haven/Little Haven, Narberth, Tenby, Bosherston, Barafundle Bay, Stackpoles, Dinas Head, Newport, St Dogmaels......We even spotted BBC Springwatch filming at BroadHaven (National trust Stackpoles)! Superb break in the heart of the Welsh countryside. Highly recommended

The cottage far exceeded our expectations. An unexpected pleasure was watching the model railway layout from our high vantage point.

This cottage is by far the best holiday accommodation we have stayed in. We've enjoyed beautiful walks of which Dinas Island was spectacular amounts many others. We hope to return some time. It has been a fantastic break with a great base to return to at the end of the day and relax.

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.

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.
