Lovely cottage right in the heart of st davids. Wood burner made it very cosy in December. My only feedback is that the mattress & pillows were too firm for us.

Thank you for your comments which we will feedback to the owner, the woodburner makes for a very cosy break at any time of the year.

We found The Forge a warm, comfortable and stylish apartment with all the little extras to make it a special week away. The copper bath is huge! The utility room makes it a practical base for a full week and the kitchen is fully equipped despite being an apartment for 2. A lovely week in a perfect location in St Davids.

The cottage was lovely and exactly as described online. The reason for the lower rating is down to parking issues which should have been more clearly outlined prior to committing to the cottage. What is described as parking for 2 small-medium cars is really parking for 2 small cars only. We were unable to park at the cottage as our car was too big to share with the car in the property above ours. We had to park some distance away from the cottage and it was often difficult to find space in St Davids.

Good location, but not very private, problems with parking

Reply from: Jill

Thank you for your feedback.  Looking at your booking we can see that you did raise these issues last week we will be in touch later in the week.

Perfect getaway. Cozy and warm, luxury accommodation

A trusted customer - 27th March 2018

Clean, comfortable, well equipped, warm and cozy, well maintained and a lovely welcome hamper which we didn't expect but it made the visit very special.

Peter Tomlinson - 2nd February 2018

This was our first visit to the Forge in the picturesque city of St David's. This charming apartment is light and airy, cosy and welcoming. We liked the combination of modern and antique style furniture; the kitchen is modern and functional and there is room for 4 at the table. The sitting area has comfortable settees and we could light the wood burning stove on chilly evenings. The bedroom is spacious with a very comfortable bed and ample storage space. The surprise was in the ensuite bathroom which boasts a copper bath! This is deep and I loved the luxury of a long soak; my husband favoured the shower! Good points are the utility room with washing/drying facilities and a private parking space. My husband and I loved our stay in this special 19th century former forge. Lots of history in the thick stone walls. We will definitely return to visit the city again and explore more of the stunning countryside and beaches of this area.

We have so enjoyed our stay at The Forge, a lovely mixture of new & old. So much to do around St Davids. We will definintely visit again. A visit to Picton Castle & Gardens is a must on a sunny day.

We were amazed at how well finished and luxurious The Forge was and the location couldn't be better. We loved having the log burning stove and really comfortable seating area to relax in on the evenings. We had everything we needed for our stay and more. I would give the bed 5 stars alone!We love Pembrokeshire and being in St Davids gave us the perfect base to explore everywhere.

We've had a superb week in the very comfortable Gorge. The weather has mostly been sunny with northerly breeze. We managed a brilliant trip out to Ramsey and saw lots of interesting birds. Also did some spectacular cliff walks to St Davids Head and around Porthgain.2 v. good eating places there. Also enjoyed the Cwtch restaurant in St Davids. The whole area is delightful and I'm sure we will return. Thank you for a lovely cottage.
