The cottage was a real home from home. Its quiet position is great for a peaceful nights sleep. Comfy beds. Shower works well. Well equipped kitchen and utility room if you are doing any cooking or washing. We visited in the winter time so didn't use the garden but its a lovely sheltered spot which would be a lovely space in the summer

Beautifully appointed cottage. Warm and cosy, very well situated for coastal path. The cottage contained everything you could wish for, it was lovely. There was a table and seats in the sunny garden. Perfect!

We've had a great week in Thimble End, it's worked perfectly for our two family groups and we've found it brilliantly equipped. The space has been fantastic, being able to use the garage for extra storage on wet days was invaluable & the garden is lovely. We'll be back!! Thank you.

Thank you for sharing your lovely cottage. It is wonderfully equipped- we wanted for nothing and enjoyed the location for walking and crabbing with the children. We found the cottage clean and very comfortable. Our first visit to Solva and we would certainly like to return – a real 'treasure'.

9th July 2016

Beautiful cottage. Very well equipped, cosy. Brilliant week walking, eating, climbing, chilling. Food in the Cambrian is excellent. Watched the fox come up the lane and walk on the roof of the house opposite. Lovely lively week.

Really enjoyed our stay in this lovely cottage. Pembrokeshire and Solva have not disappointed us on our first week. We have had sunshine every day this week and it is the end of a perfect week, we have enjoyed every minute.
