The cottage is well appointed, comfortable, clean and spacious, and very light. We loved the view over the tidal creek, with French windows in the main bedroom and living area for watching the tides and the birds. The balcony gets the evening sun. It's a great location for reaching any point along the coastal path, and the woodland walk nearby is very pretty. We even grew to like the industrial landscape on the periphery of our view, especially the lights on the water at night. The showers are good and powerful, and bathrooms are plentiful. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Comfortable beds, good sized kitchen, lounge /diner. Well maintained outside and in. Lovely views over the creek with something to watch any time of day. Really interesting location - great for birdwatchers and good location for exploring North and South Pembrokeshire. Didn't really know it existed - but we'll definitely stay again.

Shower drains require cleaning. The house itself is well maintained.If you want to travel west, north, or east this is a perfect base.Dog friendly which is a bonus and lots of beaches nearby

Just the 3 of us so we rattled around in this amazing home, but with a little toddler, the extra space was appreciated. We found the house really child friendly (especially the secure outdoor space. Lovely welcoming house, we had a great time!
