Guest Book Comments

The house was a good size but there was mould in the main bedroom and bathroom. The en-suite had an awful drains smell everyday so door had to be shut with the window open all the time. There were cobwebs everywhere especially on the wall lights and bedroom ceilings

Thank you for your feedback we are sorry that you felt there were some issues with the property, your comments have been sent to the owner and we await their comments. We will be in touch when we have heard from them.

From the owner:- “Dear Guests, we are very sorry to hear you had cause for complaint about cleaning when you stayed in September. Our caretaker works very hard to maintain high standards throughout the year and, as you will have seen, we always leave her contact information (and ours) in our Welcome package, so that guests can ring her immediately if things are not perfect when they arrive. As you point out, it is a big house and there are some high ceilings, so if cobwebs and mould were overlooked, we can only apologise and say sincerely that this is an anomaly. We are also very sorry to hear you had a problem with the en suite. Again we would have been more than happy to investigate had we been advised and perhaps alleviated the problem for you. Subsequent guests have not reported any smells, but we have now fitted an extra airlock into the plumbing system just in case it reoccurs. We hope the rest of your stay in Wales was enjoyable and that everything else in the house was to your satisfaction. We sincerely regret that we were unaware of the issues you had and could not resolve them at the time for you.”

Joanne Rushmer - 8th November 2018

Orchard House is a lovely cottage. It is well equipped, comfortable and warm. It has a safe and enclosed garden for our dog to enjoy. It is in a perfect location for us as we enjoy walking the coastal path between Strumble Head and St Davids. Our only slight problem was the bath was too small. We would rather bathe than shower but we found the bath just a bit too small. A tumble dryer would have been handy for wet days but the owner did explain to a previous guest why she didn't feel happy to provide one.

M Irving - 25th September 2018

Orchard House was perfect for a family holiday (plus pet) It was spotlessly clean upon arrival, was spacious and designed with plenty of space for people to slope off and enjoy some individual peace. The sofas were fabulously comfy although we spent most of the time eating and playing games in the kitchen. The house was furnished to a high standard but was hardy enough to prevent feeling fretful about all piling in sandy and wet. Would definitely return

Nice quite location (3 tractors per hour along the road) with ample garden space it was great for our young puppy. The house itself was a little careworn and unappealing although it was perfectly adequate as a base with all essential equipment. The bedrooms were well furnished and there was more than enough hanging space an£ other storage.

Thank you for your review and feedback which we will pass to the owner.  Glad that the booking process was easy, maybe providing some sort of inventory before arrival would be an idea

Caryl Light - 1st June 2018

Lovely big house for family and dog to spread out in. We were able to go to dog-friendly beaches, Abermawr and Abercastle (nearest) - very picturesque. Farmers Arms very good for food, and friendly hosts.

Our second stay in this lovely 'home from home'....Found Aberbach for the first time yesterday, after lunch at Tregwynt Mill. Definitely worth a visit! Many thanks.

Thanks for the nice cake and lovely home, which made our stay wonderful. It is the best holiday cottage we have ever stayed in because of the space.

Lovely spacious house ideal for family holiday. Well appointed but not so posh that you are afraid to move. Lots to do and plenty of places to eat. Diolch yn fawr iawn!

A thoroughly enjoyable week in this lovely comfortable home. Autumn came in with 50mph winds. Nevertheless, it stayed dry and sunny each day when we enjoyed our walks along the coastal path and beyond taking in the magnificent views that we have loved in our 20+ years of visiting Pembrokeshire.
