Rhosygilwen Cottage is a wonderfully warm, quiet and clean house. We very much enjoyed the conservatory which gets the sun all day. The gardens are heaven. Two good sized bedrooms which would be perfect for 2 couples. The bedroom my partner and I chose had the most comfortable mattress ever and a view of Ramsey Island. I loved the bathroom and the fluffy white towels which were kept warm by the hot water being permanently on. We discovered 2 walking routes to the coast path and saw seals and their pups in the coves. Also a good location for cycling. Thank you Hannah and her husband for letting us stay in your cottage.

The cottage was perfect for our stay. It was immaculately clean and had everything we needed. It's location is great and was very dog friendly with the enclosed garden. The host came to the property twice whilst we were there and couldn't have been more pleasant or helpful. For a family holiday near St Davids it is our number one choice. Many thanks.

Wonderful location and an extremely comfortable cottage. It's so well equipped, everything you could possibly need. The owners are lovely and very helpful. Both double bedrooms had great views and were equally comfortable. Being so close to the coastal path and St Davids was perfect. The gardens are a delight. Would definitely recommend!

This is the most beautiful, spacious, sunny, well equipped cottage one could dream of!...with beautiful views from upstairs, a delightful garden, state of the art kitchen, and cosy conservatory...not to mention the comfortable beds and huge bathrooms! Just outside St Davids, so really peaceful ( think sheep and bird sounds! ) but close enough to pop in for Evensong at the Cathedral. We were also totally spoilt by Hannah, with beautiful flowers and a welcome basket of treats. :) Just go and experience it for yourself!
