Bruce Nash - 13th July 2019

The cottage had obviously been lived in and was better equipped than we expect to find in self catering accommodation. We enjoyed a nostalgic selection of music from the sixties amongst the LPs and CDs. The only drawback is the steep and narrow approach lane which, at this time of the year, has long grass and flowers on the enclosing banks. We managed to meet the refuse collectors head on but negotiated our car into a handy side entrance. Maes y Ffynnon is very well situated for exploring this part of the Pembrokeshire coast.

Thank you for your feedback, the lanes are not usually cut by the council until a bit ater in the year but there are usually passing places/gateways that you can pull into, delighted that you enjoyed your stay.

Comfy cottage, magnificent scenery, cows grazing in the meadows – what more could we want? We love Pembrokeshire and have been inspired by the wonderful colourful rugs and bedspreads, taking a Welsh rug home to Australia. We have enjoyed our stay very much.

We've had another brilliant fortnight with fantastic weather, lots of walks and a few glasses of rose! The cottage is superb as ever. We'll be back next year – our 20th in Maes y Ffynnon!

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.

We've done so much exploring of Pembrokeshire – ideally located, and a really comfortable base. A very peaceful holiday – loved it!
