A wonderful weekend. A bass caught in the estuary and some lovely sea beet picked and cooked for dinner in the cosy cottage. Loved walking through the local woods and fields. Thank you.

What a simply wonderful, heavenly time we've all had. So peaceful and relaxing. Beautiful frosty mornings, sunshine, rain, wind, log fires, dog walks, fish and chips. We've all enjoyed it so much. Thank you and thanks so much for looking after us so well.

We are so sad to be leaving your lovely cottage. We've had a lovely time - feeling right at home in our/your superbly equipped base. Our little would dearly like to return - as would my wife and I - and we sincerely hope that we find a way to return again for some sunshine.

A lovely peaceful haven but central for all amenities. Well equipped and a comfortable "home from home". Thank you.

We have had a spectacular sunshine filled break! So very peaceful and relaxing and an excellent point from which we could explore all the local sights. The cottage had everything we needed and we are very sad to be leaving today. Can't beat these views and the tranquility. Thank you Hop Garden Cottage. We won't forget our magical time here.

We've had the most perfect week. Warm sunny days spent walking and on the beach and evenings on the patio enjoying the view. The cottage is gorgeous and we couldn't have asked for more - except perhaps another week here.

It has been a truly delightful holiday. The cottage was very restful at the start and end of busy days. We have painted, knitted, read books, played games, watched movies, ate delicious food, talked, laughed, dreamed. Pembrokeshire is an amazing place and we know we will be back here, hopefully many times in the future. Thank you for all the wee touches - milk, honey, nice blankets. We wanted for nothing. Last of all the view - it is stunning. We go home inspired and refreshed.

A lovely stay - a lovely place with sweet dogs and really kind people. We thought the marmalade was delicious and the beaches were gorgeous! We're hoping to return for another stay because Suki will miss Daisy and Fen a lot!! Love the El Khazens.

Directions to cottage were very confusing, but owners were helpful and answered our phone call. They followed this up with a quick unintrusive visit the following morning to check we were ok. The cottage was very clean and welcoming. It was well equipped with very thoughtful touches.

Suzanne Clifton - 12th August 2018

Fantastic location, fabulous views across the estuary, very quiet, but close to many attractions. Extremely well equipped, very comfortable for 4 people. Only slight downside is that there are no outside chairs for the patio. Otherwise would have been 5 stars

A trusted customer - 18th July 2018

Peaceful location, like own home, lovely welcome

Richard Hall - 7th July 2018

Narberth – bustling market town with wonderful restaurants

  • You can easily while away a day or two in the small town of Narberth - voted one of the Top 10 High streets in the UK - with its boutique shops, galleries, delicatessens, cafes and restaurants.
  • Narberth Museum is well worth a visit, looking at Narberth’s long and interesting history. Treat yourself at the museum’s cafe and bookshop.
  • Among the must-try eateries in Narberth is the ever popular, Ultracomida - a stylish, deli and tapas bar on the High Street. It is extremely busy and you may have to queue to get a seat at one of the few shared large tables...but it's well worth it.

It boasts a spacious beer garden with splendid views over the water towards Carew Castle and serves freshly prepared food and fine ales. The multi-award winning Quayside Tearoom enjoys a unique setting on the point at Lawrenny Quay offering local produce including lobster and crab - a great place to watch the yachts go by . 

Cresswell Quay

  • A beautifully unspoilt and sleepy hamlet on the banks of the Cresswell River, roughly 4 miles away from the local town of Pembroke. The wildlife along this tidal river is a birdwatcher's paradise, and from Cresswell Quay you can take a peaceful stroll through ancient oak woodland and down along the river bank. The Cresselly Arms at Cresswell Quay is a simple but popular alehouse made famous in many films including “Their Finest” with Bill Nighy.
