Thank you for your comments we will look at our description regarding the distance into Milford Haven

Uli K. - 11th September 2018

Very clean and excellent location. We visited all the beaches between Tenby and Mwnt during our stay, perfectly placed. Good facilities and good range of shops close by. Lovely to sit on the patio in the evenings. Pembrokeshire itself is very dog friendly, even on the cruise to see the puffins on skomer island and it has some of the best beaches we have ever seen. Lovely holiday. Will definitely return.

Lovely views of estuary and nice peaceful walks close by. Amenities within walking distance or short car journey. Close to some very lovely beaches. House was in immaculate condition on arrival very clean

John Clarke - 11th June 2018

Excellent accommodation, with easy access by car to West Wales coast and beaches, that are clean, not over crowded and the parking and facilities are not expensive.

We have loved our stay in Woodpecker - all very welcoming & after sailing in Dale every day it was great coming back here to relax & watch the tide coming in!

Had a really lovely stay in a high standard property which has everything you could possibly need. Visited some beautiful beaches and flew our kite. Bought a lovely dress in Narberth and had a really nice meal at the Ferry House. Would like to come in the summer as when the sun came out it made a huge difference. Enjoyed seeing the seals around Skomer Island and all the beautiful scenery that Pembrokeshire has to offer.

As avid birdwatchers, this was like having our own luxury hide! House excellent - ice outside but warm and cosey inside. Thoroughly enjoyable stay.

What a lovely house, beautifully decorated, we loved the furniture so much we bought a few pieces from Furniture Directory ourselves as it was only down the road. Will return to Pembrokeshire again as the beaches are just stunning, and we would like to do some more coastal walking. Thank you for a lovely stay.

Our second stay in this lovely home with it's superb setting. Cant wait to return. Recommend visiting Bosherston Lily ponds - take some wild bird seed, and you can tempt the birds to feed from your hand. Have photos of robins, blue tits and great tits tucking in. Magic!

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!

Easy access to beaches, beautiful walks, castles & cathedrals. Enjoyed BBQ & drinks in beautiful sunshine on patio. Thanks for fixing lights in kitchen so quickly. So peaceful & tranquil, going back to normal life will be hard. Billy the Sheltie - totally exhausted from so many walks.

Fab house, 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms! Broadhaven South combined with Stackpole Lakes great pm walk on grey blustery 1st day. Riding lessons at Hundleton Stables v. good. Broad Haven north was a great base for a morning of surfing, all equipment hired at local store next to car park. Water Garden Seaview delivered a lovely Chinese. House lived up to the name of Quality Cottages. Very impressed.
