Lovely quiet little cottage, perfectly located for 5 min access to St Davids or Solva or a few more minutes for the beaches. Caerfarchell is a quiet little village (no facilities) but ideal for this type of beaches and exploring sort of holiday. The cottage is well equipped with good kitchen and sitting room. It is a little tight for six adults upstairs but the hot water held out for all using the one shower. Yes there is a cockerel next door (previous reviews) but actually it is fine and quite normal for country dwellers, even with the windows open.Only suggestion maybe for improvement would be a hose outside for rinsing out wet-suits prior to hanging them on the provided carousel washing line. No BBQ, but not a problem as we bought our own with us.Loved our week at Coachman's cottage and would love to stay again.
