A charming pet friendly and cosy stone cottage located on the beautiful Dowrog Common near to St.Davids. Popular cycling venue, secluded garden, near the golden sands of Whitesands and the Pembrokeshire Coastal Path.
Very pleasant cottage in rural area. However we felt to become a quality cottage they need to spend more attention to the cleanliness. The decor had been refurbished yet the floors held lots of debris under the beds and rugs. Any furniture below eye level had not been dusted or polished. The pottery in the kitchen was chipped and the cups were stained. These should have been replaced. We found dog hairs on the staircase although it was stated no dogs upstairs they were also in the bedrooms. There is a turnaround time of 6 hours between bookings this is plenty of time to leave it pristine. We have lived for several years ourselves in a rural cottage yet have never left the skirting boards dirty. We left a note in the housekeeping book.

From the owner:- Thank you for your feedback. We endeavour to provide a good standard and are very disappointed on the comments regarding the cleanliness. We have taken that up with the company we use to clean the cottage for us and asked them to be more thorough. We do ask people to keep their dogs downstairs and provide a stair gate to facilitate this. It is however difficult for us to do more. We do ask guests to let us know anything that is chipped or broken in the housekeeping book, so thank you for doing so. The chipped dishes and tea stained cups have already been replaced.
Fabulous cottage. Great location.
A pretty-well ideal retreat, nicely off the main road, and thoughtfully furnished. And how nice to be visited on Day 1 by the owners (also Joneses!)
Cottage evidences much care and attention by the owners (many cottages fall down on that). Excellent range of books on the locality, history, natural history and maps. Lovely garden with hidden corners and which merges into the surrounding moorland. Peaceful and a haven of tranquillity.
Lovely, very comfortable cottage set in a beautiful garden, complete with an ancient standing stone. The surrounding moorland was full of wildflowers and birds, peaceful and secluded. Of course the fantastic weather made everything perfect, but the cottage was fully equipped and would be cosy and warm in the cold and wet as well. Would love to go back.
