Guest Book Comments

Very comfortable cottage in a stunning location in walking distance of Whitesands beach and the coastal path. The cottage was very clean and provides bathrooms for all 4 bedrooms, which is a real asset. The large kitchen is a lovely space for the whole party to meet in and enjoy meals and other activities.The outside patio area is well appointed and provides a most comfortable and sheltered spot to enjoy the beautiful views. A couple of the bedrooms were quite small, in particular the upstairs twin bedroom. The open plan stairs leading to the upstairs lounge area does allow sound to travel easily through the house, so privacy can be compromised. The owners were friendly and helpful. Overall, ideal for a family holiday!!

Mattresses were uncomfortable and furnishings tired. Lovely and helpful owners

Michael Beer - 14th November 2018

The cottage was immaculately presented and fully equipped for a family group. We have nothing but praise for Jimmie and Iris the owners who kept out of our way other than to water the plants and do a mid-week check that all was was.

Would have given 5 stars for location - just a few maintenance issues. Front of draw fell off one of the bedside cabinets and had obviously been in this state for some time. Downstairs shower cut out sometimes and would not work even though reset button pressed. No draw space in upstairs twin bedroom. Kitchen cupboards did smell very musty.

If we had a top ten list of things we wanted in a holiday cottage, Carn Llidi would be it! A fabulous cottage, great location, great people, and for Sian, magic animals too. Thank you so much we had the best time here! P.S. "if you're not careful we'll be back soon with the in-laws" - they'd love it too! Thank you!!!

We loved it here - our second time of coming. The place is beautiful and the landscape is perfect; looking out of that front window is amazing! Thanks!

It is seal week in Pembrokeshire. We've seen big bull seals guarding the bay, helpless pups calling from the beach where they lie waiting for food and the odd massive blubbery mother frolicking off the shore keeping careful watch over their babies. Awesome week walking the path. Great Central location - nice base. Great week with friends.

Thank you Iris & Jimmey. We had a lovely week despite the rain. The cottage was comfortable for all of us and in a great location. We hope to return.
