Marloes barn with views of St Brides Bay and Ramsey Island for holidays on the Pembrokeshire coast close to the embarkation point for boat trips from Martins Haven to Skomer Island.
Price reduction of £50 for 1 to 2 guests.
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.
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: Â£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!
Excellent cottage - high spec Great views V quiet
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.
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.
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.
