Cottage was lovely, nice decor and the beds were so comfortable! Kitchen was extremely well stocked with utensils etc and gardens were fantastic. We didn't get to sit out at is was a rather wet week late in October but you can imagine how lovely and tranquil the gardens would have been in Summer. Fab beaches nearby for the dogs. All in all, a lovely holiday

Lovely Christmas feel to the Granary. The internet is frequently not adequate to run the TV. A better solution would be a Humax Freesat recorder. (It is always difficult to watch live TV on a family group holiday). Couldn't get the washing machine to operate, but we were able to use Cerbid House. Otherwise up to the usual first class standard and very well equipped. We had a most enjoyable time.

Guestbook Comments

If you've ever visited a holiday cottage before, you most likely have seen a guestbook in the property for guests to leave a review for others when they arrive. Each of the following comments was lovingly left by people just like you in the guestbook left at The Granary.

Stuart & Diane
12th September 2019

Comfortable & well-equipped cottage. Beautiful area and coast path walks. Solva & Porthgain lovely places to visit and eat. Great place to recharge the batteries.

Liz & Dave
7th September 2019

Great to be back, love this place, peace, quiet, warmth and the ability to chill & replenish the batteries. Loved all our walks on the cliffs and the local seafood. Loved the garden and the sunsets & sunrises. Many thanks for the comfy beds too!

The Butler family
30th August 2019

Lucky to get a last-minute booking for the family at this lovely house. Wood burner warmed the whole house in seconds - fab & cosy. Children loved toasting marshmallows in it! Solva 'Window on Wales' is a lovely shop for a bit of early christmas shopping. MamGu in Solva has really nice welsh cakes and cream teas. Druidston beach is a favorite of ours - easier to cross the pebbles than Newgale; both dog-friendly. Reasonably lucky with the weather this week - all of us going home with a healthy glow. Great week in a beautiful cottage. Thank you.

The Lee Family
7th June 2019

Another enjoyable stay - we think it's our 28th year. Tips of the year - wheelchair accessible walks alongside the harbour at Solva from the car park by the Harbour In along the right hand side of the harbour looking from the car park. Also in Little Haven up past The Swan Inn (slight incline initially but levels out) to the point with wonderful panoramic views.

Heushilwood & Ferguson families
18th August 2017

Despite some appalling weather we thoroughly enjoyed exploring this part of Wales. Small children loved Whitesands beach and crabbing at Solva. The Shed at Porthgain has the best ever fish & chips. Blue Water boat trip round Ramsey Island very highly recommended - ages 4-72. Pembroke Castle (on a very wet day) - do take the history tour. Also enjoyed successful mackerel fishing and eating the results!

We thought The Granary exceptionally well appointed and comfortable. Loved all the hot water and children and dog loved the garden. Everything was well thought out.

Thank you from us all for providing such a comfortable and great base for our family holiday. No one got up early enough to see the otters, we were all exhausted after our activities and slept so well.

St Davids Cathedral and Bishops' Palace
