Pretty dog friendly Summer Cottage is a wonderful base from which to explore Whitesands Beach and the magnificent Pembrokeshire coast
See customer experience. Disposal of waste and recycling system very complicated with no dates for this year for various collections available. All recyclable stuff was taken by us direct to St David's Recycling centre.

From the Owner:- "Two cottages use the parking space and most people park considerately but I'll certainly review the house book information about both parking and adjusting the heating. 2019 information about recycling is also now available - apologies for any difficulty. The two cottages are independent of each other but I am always pleased to fix a problem straight away - this avoids visitors having to struggle with something annoying!"
Clean, warm, homely, tastefully decorated and best of all in the ideal location midway between St Davids and Whitesands. Wonderful for either beach or walking holidays
Excellent well-equipped house in an ideal position.
Beautifully cared for snd well equipped cottage by an owner living adjacently. Two en siute bathrooms and everything you need for a warm comfortable holiday. Then there's the location. Coastal path and Whitesands an easy stroll one way, St David's city/ cathedral the opposite way, both within a mile or so. What could be better?
We have had a wonderful stay in this beautifully restored cottage. Oscar liked jumping over the garden wall and giving us hours of endless fun trying to find him, until he would eventually appear hotly pursued by a very angry squirrel. The coast is worth exploring. Dog friendly beaches at Abereiddy and Abermawr and of course Solva, particularly when the tide is out. Whitesands alas does not allow dogs. At Abereiddy it is a short walk to the Blue Lagoon, where you can see people jumping from a platform into the water. Continue the walk to Porthgain and sample the fish & chips at The Shed. Thank you Maggie for providing us with such comfortable accommodation, making everything about our week unforgtable.
We've stayed in the area several times over the last 20 yrs or so and can safely say we have now found the perfect location! Not only is Summer Cottage itself welcoming, well appointed and comfortable, but its position between St Davids and Traeth Mawr is exceptional. So many places nearby to revisit or find for the first time - and apart from one wet and misty day the weather has been much kinder than we could have hoped for. Too many highlights to mention - just a few here! Walking round from Porth Clais to Porth Selan; Concert in the Cathedral with local male voice choirs, 'Belle Voice' (superb Pembrokeshire ladies choir) and brass bands; sitting on various beaches; meals at Cwtch, the Cambrian Inn Solva and The Shed, Porthgain. Also the chance to try our hand at ringing the bells in the bell tower (Cathedral Open Day); The NGS Open Garden 'Crystal Garden' (details in tourist office) is worth a visit as is the tiny but wonderful garden/nursery at the top end of the main street in St Davids. Thank you Maggie. It's been so relaxing and peaceful here. Hopefully we'll be booking for next year.
Thank you for a lovely holiday in your beautiful cottage. It really is a little piece of heaven! The house gave us great big cwchtes (warm embraces) all week. Wonderfully renovated and very thoughtfully decorated and equipped. A great first holiday with our new addition - Finn! Such a relaxing week.
A wonderful holiday! We have holidayed in Pembrokeshire many times over the past 20 years - this is the best location (coast and St Davids) and by far the best cottage - we are reluctant to leave and hope to return soon.
Many thanks Maggie for a wonderful week in your lovely cottage - a real seaside home. Loved the decor and the perfect position where it is. Our friends Rob & Anna stayed for 2 nights on route to Ireland and they loved it too. The weather was strange for the first three days, with a sea mist which did not go away. It was very warm though and it didn't stop us getting about. Very hot on Monday and Tuesday. We have enjoyed our week very much and Maisie has loved the beach walks. We hope to return soon! Thanks for the wine.
We have had a wonderful week in this beautifully located and perfectly appointed cottage. Thank you so much, Maggie - your attention to detail and wonderful welcome has been hugely appreciated. You've thought of everything! We have walked, run and cycled as many paths and roads as we could fit in this week. The surfers among us have caught as many waves as possible too. We've eaten at The Sloop in Porthgain, Bishops in St Davids and The Cambrian in Solva. The latter was the best. To come back every evening to a cwtch (warm embrace) from this peaceful cottage has been marvelous. We hope to return soon.
What a delightful cottage, beautifully renovated to a very high specification - all we could need was here. So cosy when the weather 'blew up' one evening. This was a return to this area - not many years missed in the past 55 for either of us. Porth Melgan and Marloes Sands remain firm favourites. Our dog loved the coastal path, leading the way, mile after mile. Scabious, campion, cowslips, spring quill, bluebells to name a few of the flowers. Peregrine falcons preying on choughs, gannets diving and so much more. Our favourite snack is on the balcony of the Boat Club at Solva - Gerthin's Cider and a brownie! Maggie you live in an idyllic spot with 5* accommodation - we hope we can be regulars!
Thank you Maggie for a truly relaxing break in this wonderful cottage. We hope everyone else who stays here loves it as much as we do. Everything is here to ensure a comfortable stay from the moment you arrive, with great attention to detail that has been much appreciated. Have even found a new sauce to go with lamb thanks to Delia Smith's cookbooks. A real gem in a perfect location. Looking forward to the next visit already!
