A really nice, cosy cottage, as described. Although cosy, it was bigger than we anticipated and we didn't feel cramped with 2 adults, 2 teenagers and a dog.Kitchen very well equipped, nice fire, TV and wifi worked fie (and we had good 4G as well), beds very comfortable and with the quietness and absence of light pollution we had really good nights sleep.All roads in Pembrokeshire have narrow sections but Maes y Ffynnon has a good offload parking space so didn't have any problems.Great access to Abereiddy/Blue Lagoon and Newgale (10-12mins easy). Only 45mins too Marloes. Lots of nice walks within 30mins or straight from cottage.We caught the storms whilst there but with wetsuits it didn't stop us going to the beaches (Broadhaven good if bad weather) and we did some exciting walks on the days it was too bad to board/surf - there is a washing machine but what was really great was the tumble dryer in the garage so we could change out of wet/muddy stuff there, get it washed and then dried ready to go again the next day.Minor problem with a knob on the oven but after the owner contacted us this was sorted within the day (and the a part for another knob was arranged for fitting on -over day so it didn't affect us at all, or the next visitors).Nice cottage, great portion, really helpful owners!

A lovely, comfortable, clean, very well equipped cottage. We were contacted whilst en route to tell us it was ready for our arrival & also soon after to ensure all was ok. The location, while some way outside Solva, up a fairly steep hill is beautiful & peaceful. The only issue for us, was the high steps leading down to/up from the cottage door & the very slippery inside staircase (Quality Cottages aware & assessing), other than that, it was perfect.

VERY well equipped cottage. Lovely and quiet. Stairs slippy as wooden and no grips but other than that it was perfect!

Maybe at 74 I am old fashioned but the wonderful smell of polished wood when entering made me realize we were staying in a much loved home rather than just a holiday let!! The weather has been lovely and Maes y Ffynnon a joy to come home too after our little trips. Thank you very much.
