Thank you for your 'perfect' 5 star review.

Donna Mylechreest - 27th April 2019

Cottage is in a great spot - sunsets and sea views from the conservatory. Kitchen satisfactory but oven very dirty. Windows could have done with a proper Spring clean too. Master bedroom accessed separately to the two twin rooms and only one bathroom/loo would make this a tricky place to stay for young families or all adult parties. Inventory would have been helpful as there were items we assumed would be there and they weren’t.

Michelle Aloof - 19th April 2019

Beautifully appointed and positioned. Prepared meticulously. One one of the nicest cottages we ever rented. BUT... Stairs to both upper floors OK for us, but not for some others (stair gates will only prevent kids' accidents). The steps are very steep and open, with rather inadequate bannisters. We had to come down sideways in bare feet to be safe. If a family came with grandparents, it is perfectly possible that the elders could not safely access the bedrooms: you need to stress this potential difficulty very clearly: £1000 pw in summer is expensive for 7 nights on a sofa. Lights have to left on at night to illuminate the stairs. The exits from the kitchen to the north, the sitting room to the south and access to the conservatory have fully slated steps that are potentially invisible and could be stepped over, causing falls or broken ankles: please highlight the step or the instep - we used furniture to remind ourselves. The access from the sitting room to the south is squashed in by the stairs. You really need to build on a porch with lots of hanging space: we were taking waterproofs over to hooks by the utility room and/or taking things in there to dry: not ideal. Storm Deirdre (Sat 15 Dec) nearly destroyed the conservatory. The doors were not secured into the frame above or below. We had to hang on to the door handle for more that half an hour until Craig a local farmer arrived (c/o Di who was fortunately by her phone) and screwed batons on outside to fully secure the doors. The glass gable end was flexing alarmingly throughout. If the doors had blown out (certain) and wind had got inside the structure, I think it would have been very badly damaged and all contents wrecked.

Thank you for taking the time to review your stay. Your comments and suggestions will be forwarded to the owner. Unfortunately, you experienced one of the biggest storms we have had for some time during your stay with high winds and rain buffeting the property with its cliff top location. We are delighted to hear that you felt The Dairy was one of the nicest cottages you have stayed in

Beautiful location. Problems with the wifi, which was unfortunate. Would love to see the end of the square plates and bowls - really impractical!

A trusted customer - 8th September 2018

Excellent cottage - high spec Great views V quiet

A trusted customer - 27th July 2018

We had an amazing holiday here. Loved the sun room so much. Spent so much time in there watching the sun sets and the stars. Really comfortable and Di was super helpful.

Georgie Hart - 29th June 2018

What a lovely place, no noise, lovely and clean and things like the duck kettle made us smile, the sunroom is so comfortable, the outlook from the sunroom is great, watching the ships lining up to go into Milford Haven out at sea, and so near the coastal path.

A trusted customer - 18th May 2018

Very clean and nicely finished. Beautiful surroundings and friendly helpful caretaker. Dreadful mattress and blunt cheap cooking knives which could be easily remedied, spoiling a lovely ship for a hap'orth of tar. Would be back like a shot if they put a reasonable mattress in the double bed.

Thank you for taking the time to review your stay. Glad that you enjoyed the stay but we are sorry that the mattress was uncomfortable and the knives were not sharp, your comments have been passed to the owner

Wonderful cottage in a superb location.

Donna Mylechreest - 14th April 2018

I thought it was extremely disappointing. The marketed image was not matched by the reality

Beautifully equipped and decorated barn conversion with wonderful views towards the coast

John Solle - 31st January 2018

We all really enjoyed staying here. Loved the conservatory and views of St Brides Bay watching the ships come & go. Lovely walk on the coast path past Martins Haven onto Deer Park (Wooltack Point) headland. Lots of seals and seal pups in the bays below the headland, not good for vertigo though! Can highly recommend Giannis Ice-Cream shop in St Davids and the Cathedral, Solva lovely and great to go back to Bosherston Lily Ponds & Broad haven Sth Beach, especially cream filled jam & scone at Ye Olde Worlde Cafe in the village. Stack Rocks and the green Bridge of wales arch are well worth a look, no guillemots this time of year or puffins on Skomer. Great weather all week, sunburnt but chilled out.

We had a great holiday - thank you for a lovely place to stay. We can recommend the sailing school at Dale, Musselwick and Marloes beaches, Tregwynt Mill & St Davids. There is a cafe in the Post Office for a cuppa after a dip. We appreciated the hot showers and the conservatory. The views were wonderful and the sound of the sea do relaxing. We had a lovely time and are very sad to leave. But we'll be in touch!

We have had a wonderful week in this cottage. LOVE the views and especially the sunsets in the evening. Great proximity to Marloes Sands which in our opinian in the best beach in the area - tip we learned this week - go through the National Trust car park (if you have followed directions in the green folder) & then take the second right into a big field - go right to the bottom of this field to park & you'll be so much closer to the beach. Enjoyed eating at the Griffin Inn in Dale, great food and good views over the water. Thank you for the watersports shop recommendation - we ended up purchasing second habd wet suits (much better value than hiring).

Marloes Sands is so beautiful it brought tears to my eyes.. We have had an amazing holiday taking in the wildlife, the geology and of course changeable weather! This location is fabulous & totally unspoilt. We have seen choughs, a peregrine, seals, a brown hairstreak butterfly, young foxes playing and a very human friendly sanderling. The freshwater lakes at Bosherston are incredible too. The Dairy is characterful and bedrooms very comfortable.

About the Area

The Pembrokeshire Coast Path and the Marloes Peninsula

  • The Pembrokeshire Coast Path which runs 186 miles from Poppit Sands in the north to Amroth in the south, circles the Marloes Peninsula and passes just at the bottom of the meadow bordering East Hook Dairy. Now joined up with the All Wales Coastal Path, the Pembrokeshire Coast Path is a place of magnificent scenery, wonderful bird and wildlife and a huge variety of beautiful beaches.

Marloes Village

  • A mile and a half from this comfortable cottage is Marloes Village which boasts a convenience store, The Lobster Pot is the local pub and serves good pub food, and the Clock House Restaurant. It is a small village but with good facilities.

Marloes Mere Wetland

  • Just outside Marloes village is Marloes Mere - a wetland which was a famous source of medicinal leeches until the beginning of the twentieth century (though sadly they have now died out). Home to a huge variety of birds, there are hides for bird enthusiasts to spot - depending on the time of year - Teal and Snipe, Marsh Harriers, Barn Owls, Choughs, Swallows and Swifts. A really fascinating place!

Martins Haven and Skomer Island

  • Boat trips leave for the islands of Skomer (April to September) and Skokholm (April to July) from the tiny cove at Martins Haven, just half a mile along the lane from the Dairy. It is short distance to walk - though there is parking if you want to take the car.
  • The islands are famous the world over for their wonderful bird life - particularly for Skomer's very entertaining colony of puffins. The surrounding waters are also full of wildlife and visiting these islands, just off the Pembrokeshire coast, is a truly memorable life experience!

Pembrokeshire Beaches

  • There is a range of lovely beaches around the Marloes and Dale peninsulas, many of which welcome dogs all through the year. Musselwick, Marloes and Westdale Bay are all close by - visit these and the long sandy beaches in St Brides Bay - Broad Haven, Druidston Haven and Newgale - this is the perfect place for a beach holiday.

Dale and the Haven Waterway

  • A pretty coastal village, Dale is a centre for water sports - you can try your hand at sailing, powerboating, surfing, or kayaking - there is tuition for all abilities.
  • The crescent shaped bay at Dale is at the entrance to the Haven Waterway, a natural harbour which runs deep into the Pembrokeshire countryside. At its mouth the Haven is a busy thoroughfare with boats from the very large to the very small - while away the hours just watching the passing traffic.

Dining out on the Waterway

  • Have lunch and browse in the chandlery or watch the boats on the water at the Neyland Marina Caf�.
  • Check the Milford Marina website for the range of shops and cafes to enjoy on the quay. A colourful variety to choose from and expensive boats and yachts to admire.
  • At the Griffin Inn in Dale you can eat al fresco overlooking the bay or enjoy delicious snacks and meals at the Boat House Cafe.

The Brunel Cycle Track

  • Through Westfield Pill and along Brunel's (now disused) railway track, you can join the Brunel Trail. Walk or cycle up the valley into open countryside with lovely views on a traffic-free route.

The Torch Theatre

  • The Torch Theatre in Milford Haven has a caf�/bar and gallery and a full programme of stage performances and cinema. Check their website for details.

Family Activities in Pembrokeshire

  • There is plenty to do in Pembrokeshire. If you are looking for adventure, try the centres at TYF, Sealyham or the Pembrokeshire Adventure Centre for outdoor activities, for both the experienced and the novice.
  • In South Pembrokeshire - Oakwood, Heatherton, the Dinosaur Park, Manor Wildlife Park or Folly Farm offer a variety of different activities from theme park rides to exotic animals.

St Davids & Whitesands

  • Visit Britain's tiniest city of St Davids with characterful streets full of independent shops, galleries, cafes, bars and restaurants all wrapped around magnificent St Davids Cathedral. Complete your day out with a walk along the coast path or drive to glorious unspoiled Whitesands Bay 1.5 miles away.

Fabulous barn conversion on the Marloes Peninsula, Pembrokeshire for year round holidays.
