Fab cottage in a great location. Wonderful welcome pack and felt private despite being an adjoined property. Great roaring fire and so much space 2 things let it down - 2 single duvets on a double bed was odd. And no laminates for how to use things like the washing machine, heating, or with WiFi log in details. Apart from that it was great

Lovely, clean and spacious accommodation. Great kitchen facilities, open wood fire, comfortable bed and wonderful sun room. Garden at front was enclosed so great for our dog. Perfectly placed for the Pembrokeshire Coastal Path. Farmers Arms, about a hundred yards away was dog friendly and provided good food with a friendly service - - good selection of veggie options. All in all we had a great week.

Well appointed, cosy and lovely and warm. Heating on twice a day , very welcome in a stone building. A welcome pack including local produce on arrival.The location is ideal for access to the north Pembrokeshire coast. Pub just up the road and the tearoom does take always 4 nights per week.

What a wonderful cottage. I wanted to take the kitchen home with me! Thank you for a lovely stay and for the welcoming wine and water for the dogs, very thoughtful. Thanks also Antony for the emergency fence, without it the girls would have eaten the chickens!

Mrs Dean, Australia

A wonderful place to stay. Congenial hosts, lovely having the local just up the road, close enough to stagger home! Thoroughly enjoyed meeting the local population. Indeed worthwhile coming from Austalia to see all the scenery . Then apart from all the above we have finally met our relatives and they are gorgeous.

Mrs Hutton, Broom, Australia
28th September 2013

Thoroughly enjoyed a far too short week staying in 'The Old Smithy' ,a beautifully restored building reflecting the history of Mathry. Tina and Antony have been more then perfect hosts and my sister and I have thoroughly enjoyed you sharing of your home. The personalised welcome was a pleasant surprise. We will miss your beautiful family when we return to Australia. Thank goodness for Facebook! I will return!
