About Drws Gobaith

Pet-Friendly characterful stone cottage, with bike storage - sleeps 4 guests and 1 dog

  • In the heart of the Dowrog Common, this lovingly refurbished semi-detached stone cottage is set down a quiet single track lane with wonderful rural views across open farmland and the common. It's a delightful location for lovers of peace and tranquillity and wildlife.
  • Meaning Door of Hope, Drws Gobaith, is thought to have acquired its name from pilgrims as they neared the sacred shrine at St. Davids. The massive standing stone Maen Dewi (Dewi's Stone) located on the boundary of the garden was believed to be a valuable landmark on the journey.
  • The comfortable accommodation offers a cosy sitting room with wood burning stove, 3 bedrooms, and a well-equipped kitchen. The rear garden is unenclosed and there is a small stream to the side and front of the property.
  • Drws Gobaith is a lovely place to relax in, get away from it all and simply while away the time! Enjoy fantastic evenings star gazing - there is no light pollution here to spoil the starry skies.

Lovely peaceful cottage in a quiet yet easily accessible location, Cottage was very well equipped and cosy especially as the Aga was on. We had a problem with the central heating when we arrived, this was rectified the next day by the very helpful owners. We enjoyed good walks along the costal path and lovely local beaches. As it was out of season our dog was able to enjoy the beaches also. We found plenty of nice places to eat and shops, woollen mills etc to spend our money in. All in all a lovely holiday, even the weather was quite kind to us

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.

Thank you for your comments. A copy of your review has been sent to the owner and we would expect the issues you raised to be sorted out immediately. Glad that you enjoyed your stay.

Reply from: Quality Cottages Team

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.
