The cottage was comfortable, tastefully decorated and well furnished although the central heating was erratic. On investigation, it turned out that the clock in the heating system was about 12 hours out. The weather was mostly sunny but cool and we endured one rather cold night, and then after correcting the clock, the system worked OK. The shower was excellent, though the shower room was cold.

Thank you for your review we are glad that you enjoyed Gilbert's Cottage despite the heating system clock mix up, your comments have been forwarded onto the owner.
Lovely spotless inside, however the exterior windows had not been cleaned for yonks
This cottage had everything we needed for a complete rest. Enclosed gardens for our dogs & a pub round the corner, what more could we have asked for....even had glorious weather!
Very poor, no internet as advertised,damp in bedroom due to leaking guttering around window. Left early.Very disappointed.

Thank you for your review, we have been in direct contact regarding this matter
We have had a relaxing, lovely week here, in your beautiful cottage. We found the accommodation extremely comfortable and homely, and we all felt relaxed. You also have an excellent selection of games, books, and DVD's. We never stay at the same place twice, but I think we may break that family tradition after discovering here.Thank you for a wonderful week.
Thank you! Had a fabulous week - great weather, great walks and great food. Could stay here forever; the cottage and garden has such a lovely feel being so beautifully and tastefully decorated.
What a fantastic and homely cottage, love every part of it, especially the face in the wall!! Will definitely try and stay here again, it was awesome. (From our 6yr old).Thank you for sharing this lovely place.
Wow factor - you should be proud of what you have done here. Best cottage we have stayed in and best location (especially with local pub).To many best places to mention from Newgale to the Blue Lagoon. We will be back and hopefully to your lovely cottage!
Your cottage is beautiful! Every detail thought through, thank you for such a lovely place to stay. Found some lovely dog friendly beaches and weather wasn't bad either.Thank you again.
We have just had the most glorious week in your wonderful cottage. It is so comfortable and you have provided everything we could possibly want. We would love to come back again. We have also had fantastic sunshine all week! Glorious dog friendly walks along the coastal path from Strumble Head down to Solva. Wonderful holiday. Thank you
Thank you for such a beautiful cottage! The children have enjoyed exploring all the spaces. We have spent most of the time on Whitesand beach surfing. Farmers Arms is a lovely local pub offering a warm welcome. Will be back next year.
Nicest cottage we've stayed in! Beautifully stylish, comfortable and well equipped cottage in a convenient location. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay exploring the area - the beaches are great and St David's is lovely. All very doggy friendly. Beware of the enclosed back garden though - our little spaniel scaled the wall and took herself off to the pub!!!!! Thankfully a very nice pub though food not to our liking - plenty of great places to eat in the area though. Only one very small criticism - no welcome pack. But overall a good time was had by all!!!!!!!!!
