Breathtaking cottage. My wife, 2 year old daughter and I had a great week, exploring the local surroundings.Yr Hen Gof is a perfect base, only a few miles from all the best beaches and coves.(Poppit Sands is a must if you have children it is stunning) The local pub which is a stones throw away from the cottage (Farmers Arrms) is well worth a visit for food and drinks. There was a very welcome bottle of wine, and I also bought some fresh eggs from Anthony and Tina, my daughter loved talking to their chickens, cat and also the new arrival the duck. This is quite simply a great cottage in a beautiful village its a must if you are going to Pembrokeshire.
