Guest Book Comments

Stayed for 3 nights over the New Year. What a lovely property, immaculate, modern interior, the beds were so comfortable - struggled to get up in the morning. Location was great with an easy walk to the beach, pubs and restaurants. Lovely lunch at The Canteen - would definitely recommend.

A really comfortable place to spend a great week, here in Pembrokeshire. The weather was glorious and I've walked the coastal path every day, the flowers were lovely especially the Bluebells. It is just a beautiful part of the world.

A lovely home by the sea. House is so comfortable, great to stroll down to the beach and reward ourselves with excellent lunch at Blas at Fronlas- thank you

Lots to like - good layout of rooms, pleasing design decor and great location. Very clean. Not to like - some easily addressed details such as mismatched (and insufficient) cutlery, chipped crockery, lack of sharp kitchen knife set, bathroom grouting requires attention, outdoor lights not working. Running a holiday let business is necessarily different from use as a much loved second home. Another helpful detail for arriving guests would be provision of a few dishwasher tablets, clean washing up scourer, j-cloth and appropriate rubbish bags.

Very comfortable and well equipped with everything we needed

Very comfortable and well equipped and we felt at home straight away.

A trusted customer - 19th July 2018

Very spacious bungalow, but was disappointed that the bedding was not ironed, and the windows obviously had not been cleaned for a long time. The garden was quite overgrown, although the lawns obviously had been cut regularly. Despite this, it was a perfect location and Newport is lovely!

Lovely bungalow. Nice garden. Cleaner needs to leave a few dishwasher tablets and a cloth and cleaner so that one person can clean the bath before another person uses it

Cwm yr Eglwys
  • Cwm yrs Eglwys is a picturesque cove, only a short drive away. The village takes its name from the ruined 12th century St Brynach's church by the beach which was abandoned after storm damage in the mid 1800's.  The stream running through the valley tumbles through rock pools at the shore with a secret sandy beach visible at low tide.  Bathing is safe and there is a slipway for launching small craft – so whether your preference is for swimming or boating this cove is the perfect spot.

Pembrokeshire Coastal Path & Ceibwr Cove 

  • The Pembrokeshire Coastal Path, now part of the All Wales Coast Path, provides access to secluded coves and breathtaking views.

  • To the South, round the promontory called Dinas Island to the sandy bay at Pwllgwaelod,where you can enjoy refreshments and good pub food at the Old Sailors Inn. This is a picturesque and quite energetic walk - you can return to the Cwm via a level wheelchair-accessible path through the valley.  If a hike is not for you - this path, which is about a mile long, is a lovely walk in itself.

Pwllgwaelod Cove

  • Do visit the 500 year old Old Sailors Inn (formerly the Sailor’s Safety) overlooking Pwllgwaelod beach. They serve real ales and good food and sea food and shell fish are a speciality. Eat in the small dining room (book to avoid disappointment) overlooking the garden and beach or in the large garden just a few yards from the beach.

Fishguard

  • In the Town Hall there is a Farmers Market every Saturday morning selling lots of local home-made produce.
  • Upstairs in the town hall is the remarkable 'Last Invasion of Britain Tapestry'. Similar in style to the Bayeux Tapestry, it was sewn by local needle workers to celebrate the 1997 centenary of this historic event.
  • daily Irish ferry service sails to Ireland from Fishguard Harbour.

Dyffryn Fernant Gardens

  • Dyffryn Fernant garden is 6 acres of rugged countryside incorporating a wide range of planting. It includes a bog garden, ornamental grass field, lots of colour around the house, an exotically planted courtyard and a fernery.
  • Dyffryn Fernant is also one of the Great Gardens of West Wales.

Gwaun Valley 

  • The Gwaun Valley, which is still in the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park, runs inland from Fishguard Lower Town towards The Preseli Hills.  It is a lush tree-lined valley with a unique atmosphere, abundant wildlife and prehistoric sites.
  • The Bluestone Brewery in the valley is operated by passionate young brewers who have not only created local beers but also provide bespoke marketing for their products and run music nights for their discerning customers. Enjoy a pint of the good stuff with beautiful views of the Preseli Hills.  On brewing day you can see the brewers at work.
  • Take a short drive into the Gwaun Valley to The Dyffryn Arms - known locally as Bessie's - after the landlady who serves real ale from a jug in what is basically her licensed front room. It’s an experience not to be missed!
