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!

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.
