It has been a very enjoyable week & a very pleasant stay at your cottage here. If we do come back to visit this part of Wales we will definitely come back here. There are still many things to see & things to do in Pembrokeshire. Thank you.

Beautiful cottage, so homely, everything you need inside and out. Thank you Margret and Steve for being so helpful and making the cottage comfortable for our baby Oliver. We wished we could stay longer.Would love to come back again, we had a great time. Woody, our dog, also enjoyed the walks and the garden, nice plants. Thank you. Wi-fi is a great plus.

A perfect home from home, thank you for a lovely stay. The cottage provided us with one perfect base from which to explore the coast and towns of Pembrokeshire.

Leslie Dowen - 20th October 2018

Fabulous cottage, fitted out really well throughout. The owners had thought of of everything to make it a home from home for us and our dog. Would love to visit again.

Everything was faultless!

A trusted customer - 9th May 2018

Absolutely loved it, the location, serenity and the fact that the owners lived next door (for any advice) was brilliant. Everything is here, even a shaver plug and the “Welcome Pack” is fantastic. If you want to get away from all the hustle and bustle of life, this is the place, there’s no mobile phone signal but the cottage does have good Wi-fi (if you can’t live without access to the electronic world). Best pub in the area is The Royal Oak at Goodwick, they’re very dog friendly and supply treats and a lot of fuss for your hairy friend!

Martyn Gore - 28th March 2018

Excellent accommodation in terms of cleanliness, decor and facilities. Thoughtfully dressed for Christmas by the owners. A true credit to the standards expected of Quality Cottages.

Peter Barnard - 1st February 2018

Excellent place to stay extremely well decorated and extremely clean and tidy

  •  The country style kitchen is warm and welcoming with a Rayburn (for hot water and central heating only) and a beamed ceiling.  There is a woodburner in the cosy  sitting room from where French doors open onto an enclosed and very sheltered terrace and lawn � lovely for al fresco dining and sundowners!
  • Local beauty spots and footpaths include one leading up to a Neolithic burial chamber from where there are fantastic panoramic views of the whole of St Davids Peninsula including Garn Fawr � made famous by the artist John Piper who had his studio here in a traditional stone cottage. 
  • Nearby is the beautiful North Pembrokeshire rugged coast with the meandering Coastal Path, now part of the All Wales Coastal Path, and the secluded pebble beaches of Abermawr and Aberbach -  backed by woodlands carpeted with bluebells, wood anemones, primroses and wild garlic in early spring.
