Great cottage in a great location close coastal walks and a moments to St David's in the car. Clean and well equipped. Very good size bedrooms - in fact all rooms were spacious. Pleasant gardens.

Jamie Ambrose - 25th May 2018

The cottage was exceptionally well equipped. The only thing we couldn’t find was a vegetable peeler...and that is therefore superb. The cottage was exactly as described and the owner very welcoming. The beds were very comfortable and the log burner very easy to use giving the pace a real warm feeling. The cottage was even decorated festively for the season.
