Well equipped. Nice bedrooms and bathrooms. Lovely enclosed garden - one of the nicest places we have stayed with great walks around the paddocks and lanes. A minor point. We had three dogs and it would have been better if we could go straight into the enclosed garden rather than through a sort of communal court yard where the dogs could wander off elsewhere. Our problem having nosey dogs!

Cerbid House feels like a very much loved family home, and was well equipped and comfortable for the week. We appreciated the nice additional touches including lovely soaps and shampoos in the bathrooms, and a good stock of cleaning supplies in the kitchen. A good base for exploring the lovely coastal and inland regions of Pembrokeshire. It did feel slightly strange during our week that we didn't actually meet any of the owners/managers - I suppose some guests wish to be left totally on their own, though we were out and about in the garden and grounds from time to time and so it was surprising that no one was apparently around even then.

Lovely clean and quiet property that had everything we needed. The garden was large and dog friendly.

We've had a great week here at Cerbid. Weather been very good so we have managed lots of walking. Cottage is very clean, cosy, warm and well equipped. The organic bathroom products were very much appreciated and a lovely touch. We all slept like logs, beds were soooo comfortable. Lovely. Worth visiting St Davids Cathedral, St Non's Chapel, Whitesands bay, Newgale beach and a boat trip around Ramsey Island. Harbour Inn pub on the Quay at Solva does good pub food at reasonable prices. Very enjoyable week. Thank you

Thank you for a truly comfortable home for the week. It's been nearly forty years since our last visit. Exploring your coastline has been wonderful, beaches are amazing. Loved Tenby, St Davids, Solva, Whitesands and we went down country lanes not knowing where we would end up but got our reward more than once. All you need is your SAT NAV to get you home. Enjoyed the whole week.
