Good base for exploring Pembrokeshire coastal.. Quiet peaceful location dog friendly garden

Jacqueline Galvin - 20th October 2018

A perfect bolt hole for two in a fantastic location minutes from the coast. Well equipped and beautifully decorated with an exceptionally comfortable bed. The owners live in the adjoining cottage and were very friendly but not intrusive. The enclosed garden was ideal for our two dogs and we were able to walk directly from the cottage to the nearest beach. All in all a 5 star holiday, would highly recommend!

Lovely peaceful cottage. Well equipped and furnished to a very high standard. We especially enjoyed watching all the birds on the bird feeders in the garden. Great location for exploring the area.

Second year in this peaceful cottage. Very comfy, well equipped and decorated, and great for the dog too! Great location for exploring the area.

Maggie Longthorne - 31st January 2018

Right size, well furnished. Nice paintings/prints and some ornaments, but not loads of dust traps. Nice garden totally safe for dog. Slightly surprised no welcome tray

Sue - 2nd July 2017

Really nice cottage, highly recommended.

A trusted customer - 1st July 2017

The best holiday let we've ever stayed in, so peaceful, only the birds and insects are audible. We loved the private gardens and the special touches throughout. Very comfortable, great decor and so well equipped. Would benefit a couple of sun beds on the terrace. But can't fault the Cottage or the friendly welcome.

What a fantastic cottage, so wonderfully appointed and in a great situation to so many different walks on the coastal path...we will have to come back! The dog has loved all the walks and having an enclosed garden. The weather has been fantastic and we have seen some stunning scenery. Thank you for a wonderful week.
