Guest Book Comments

The cottage recently renovated is a perfect blend of old and new. Old Welsh furniture blends with up to date comforts, like WiFi and comfy beds. It is excellently equipped, there’s plenty of kitchen utensils for cooking and eating and the kitchen is easy to use. The greatest advantage is the garden room off the kitchen so ideal to eat in and relax whatever the weather. We had magical sunsets while eating our evening meal, and spent hours in there just relaxing. It’s easy to get out of the lanes and visit the coast north and south; we got into St. David’s in 15 minutes, with little traffic around,. We thoroughly recommend Clogmakers, it has moved on hugely! Hope to return before long.
