Thank you for a fantastic week. Very peaceful and just what we needed. Lovely cottage which had everything we needed for a holiday with a baby. Very well equipped kitchen, but we did manage to eat out too - the Refectory at St David's cathedral does great lunches.

I highly recommend this beautiful cottage. I stayed there with my dog for several days in February, and found it beautifully warm and cosy: underfloor heating in the ensuite bathroom was sheer luxury. It is decorated and fitted out with loving and stylish care, I felt immediately at home, and couldn't wait to light the wood burner that had been laid ready. As a retreat for a single person and dog, it was ideal. Situated in a tiny, quiet, pretty village, but with such easy access to Saint David's, amazing expanses of sandy beaches and of course the spectacular coastal path. I imagine that a group would enjoy the cottage as much as I did, provided as it is with everything you could need for preparing and eating food, and relaxing afterwards, including each bedroom feeling peaceful, and looking coordinated, modern yet timeless, and provided with unbelievably comfortable beds! I can't wait to return with my family, and for another solitary retreat.

Thank you so much for your feedback and improvements which have been forwarded to the owner, we that you had a lovely stay.

Reply from: Jill

From the owner: Thanks - always useful to have feedback so we have a better understanding - though 3 stars seems a bit harsh! We had in fact already recently got a coffee table and have it at home ready to take next time we are there. And will also get a CD player. Many thanks

A trusted customer - 2nd October 2018

Whilst it was suitable for us as a couple, it was a struggle with 5 adults and 2 dogs when we stayed last week. With only one shower it was not easy coming back from the beach and everyone wanting a shower. The bath used up a lot of hot water and we had to use the boost button all the time. There were no cleaning products, dustpan and brush or any black sacks for rubbish, where in all other cottages we have stayed in these have been provided. This was a late booking and couldn't find a more suitable one at the time. We thought it expensive for what it was. A hand held shower over the bath would be a help. Neighbours had a cockerel that crowed from 6am! I know that is nothing to do with you but it added to the frustration.

Thank you for your review. We have forwarded a copy to the owner to act upon regarding the inclusion of cleaning products and black bags and with a view to looking at the hot water at the end of the season. Apologies for next doors noisy cockerel.

Reply from: Jill

The owner has replied that a shower attachment has been purchased and that she will double check with the cleaning company but there should have been a hoover, brushes and a dustpan and brush in the kitchen. They are looking into replacing the existing shower with an electric shower so that hot water would be available constantly.

A trusted customer - 24th August 2018

Well laid out compact cottage.

Tessa Peacock - 12th August 2018

We thought the property was excellent and suited our needs very well. It was well-appointed, well located and well-equipped. Whilst it was adequately clean the main lounge floor could have been better but it is appreciated that on change-over day time is at a premium. I would have no hesitation in recommending it and would be happy to stay there again.

Martin Shaw - 22nd June 2018

Excellent location for south west wales - very quiet and well equipped cottage. Clean and well maintained with good instructions. Cottage more suitable for 4 adults rather than 6. We would stay there again.

Barbara Carden - 8th May 2018

Warm, comfortable cottage. Very well equipped, comfy bed, underfloor heating in bathrooms and a really good log burner. Weather was cold and rather wet but we had a cosy place to stay!

Maggie Scrase - 10th April 2018

Very cosy and welcoming well Equipped

Jonathan Boden - 20th March 2018

The cottage was lovely but there was an issue with the amount of hot water for a 6 person cottage. Also, the cottage was not as clean as one would expect

Reply from: Jill

Thank you for your feedback we are so sorry that there was not enough hot water for you all and the property could have been cleaner - your comments have been passed to the owner
