Glad your stay was 'perfect' thank you for your comments
Beautiful but...Practical issues, lack of storage, very uncomfortable mattress, sleeping was a real problem

We are sorry that you felt there were some issues we have forwarded your comments to the owner and await their reply.
Very nice property, lovely location, all met the description in the listing. We really enjoyed our stay. Could do with some better thought out storage though. Easily resolved by some more hooks in various rooms so somewhere more to hang clothes and also somewhere to hang coats and wet things. Perhaps even some in the boiler cupboard.
good stuff... great location, lovely conversion of building and renovated to a high standard. not good stuff....lots of cups and plates not clean so needed to be washed.... No wifi, big problem for us as it was advertised and not good that all we were told was that it wasnt available due to a fault, noticed fault had been existing week earlier. also... not terribly comfortable seats - needs sofa. In hot weather you need a window with a screen to have fresh air... too many bugs to keep them open

Thank you for your feedback, we have passed your comments onto the owner. We are sorry that the wifi was not available and that you had to wash some crockery before use. Sadly there really is no room for a sofa, the website does clearly show the 2 tub chairs in the lounge - we are sorry that you found them uncomfortable. Great that you loved the location of this pretty little cottage.
Lovely cottage beautiful surroundings. Great that the accept dogs but cleaning needs improving. Lots of black dog hairs on scatter cushions and floor
immaculate and a lovely quiet position, ideal for dog lovers
We so enjoyed our stay in such a beautiful location - completely away from the rest of the world! Such a peaceful place to stay with some great walks nearby. The cottage was presented and finished to a very high standard indeed. We would like to award it 5*, but it was missing one thing - storage space for clothes, lacking drawer and hanging space at all. A small chest of drawers in the lounge area would be a great addition and would just fit in alongside the outside door, as this is where we kept our suitcase, which we had to live out of! We would recommend this cottage to our friends and will definitely be returning one day. Thank you!
Superb conversion of an old building. Amazing attention to detail and finish in a holiday cottage. The gardens and wood make it special, a lovely place to come back to after being out all day walking. Places we loved: Porthgain and 'The Shed' - fascinating industrial remains of an old community and great fish & chips! Solva Woollen Mill - the shop is irresistible. Lovely people and atmosphere. Solva village is beautiful. We had great meals at The Cambrian (try the fish curry) and The Ship good value. The Druidstone Hotel near Broad Haven. When you manage to find it, this quirky place has a stunning location & excellent food.
Thanks very much. We will be back!
We spent two lovely weeks in this peaceful wood cottage. Places we loved: Newgale Beach - also perfect for our dog Bjelle. Marloes Sands:beautiful rocks, nice views to the islands. Miraculous church of NNevern with mighty ewe tree.
Lovely, clean, modern cottage. Idyllic location. Great walks,both from the front door and scenic coastal paths. Couldn't have wished for a more fantatsic week away. Superb weather& a simply amazing honeymoon. First time in the area,but we will most definitely be back. Dogs loved it too. Thank you
Highly recommend the 'caramalised bacon ice-cream' made at the Bench in St Davids by Italian Gianni for your fur babies. Jess loved it! The human ice-cream was amazing too. The Cambrian in Solva does fabulous food as does the Cwtch in St Davids and highly recommend the cafe in Newport called Vic North Cafe-Deli - great coffee and very dog friendly space outside. Worth a walk up the hill behind to Newport as well - spectacular views. We explored a lot of out of the way footpaths and found many quite inaccessible. I guess most stick to the coast path.. We have had the most lovely week and Jess looks very sad to be leaving. Thanks and we hope the next people to stay here have such brilliant weather and as lovely a time as we have. Thank you.
We have had a great week in this lovely little cottage. Weather couldn't have been better - we have walked both locally (I loved the two footpaths that flank the cottage) and on the coast path. Add in archaeology and castles- perfect! Solva Mill and its shop is super - the cafe's very nice too! Finally St Davids,the Cathedral and especially the Bishops Palace - were every bit as good as I thought they would be! Thank you.
Our second visit here. The weather has been excellent, sunshine but not humid like the rest of the the UK at present. Lovely coastal walks from Solva & Abereiddy. Beach at Newgale again excellent. We've had a great time and the dogs have loved it again.
Our second visit to this lovely cottage. Had a lovely week - good weather too - and always wonderful wildlife here in Pembrokeshire - the foxgloves have been really special this year. Cottage is very comfortable and we love the pond's resident moorhens. Thank you for a lovely stay here.
We really enjoyed our stay here, its small but (almost) perfectly formed. It was lovely to go and do some touristy things and go for long walks (we recommend Ramsey Island for this too) and came back home to relax in the peaceful surroundings. Unfortunately the moorhens were very elusive or maybe Bob & Jess (the previous occupants) took them home!
