Guest Book Comments

What a splendid cottage in a lovely setting. Thank-you for the tips on where to spot seals; we walked from the cottage to the coast and spotted some where you said we might. Thank-you also for the suggestion of Aber Mawr beach; we had a lovely afternoon there. We loved the tapas and sea view at Bar 5 in Fishguard. Our other recommendation is for 'Bay to Remember' wildlife boat trips based in Cardigan. They use small boats so everyone has a good view. We saw lots of dolphins, seals, three kinds of jelly fish, as well as various types of sea bird.

What an amazing holiday we've had at Trefechan wen. We were blown away by the coastal walk around Strumble Head and were so lucky to have spotted two seals at Seal Beach. Poppit Sands and Whitesands were fab beaches, the boys loved going into the waves and rock pools. We caught so many crabs.

We had a very enjoyable stay in this delightful cottage. It has been a very relaxing week for us and our two dogs. Especially relaxing in the garden in the evening to enjoy the late evening sunshine. We have enjoyed walking as usual. It is such a beautiful coastline.

We walked with Pip the dog Through sunshine, wind and fog. We strolled along to Strumble Taking great care not to stumble We popped to Poppit Sands Leaving pawprints on the strand. At Porthgain we were well fed In a place they call 'The Shed'. We love Trefechan Wen And dearly hope to come again!

Thank-you for sharing your beautiful cottage with us and making us feel so welcome. So relaxing and the dogs loved the garden. Newport Beach was lovely for the dogs, Solva is beautiful. Lovely coastal path walks, Strumble Head lovely views. Wolfscastle food is excellent. Also the Old Sailors at Dinas is great to eat and exercise the dogs on the beach there. The cottage is so cosy and warm everything you need and more.

Another great holiday at Trefechan Wen. We visited all our usual haunts - and a few more besides. Whenever you retrun there is always something new to find. That's why we love Wales - so much to do.

Thank-you for a lovely relaxing week. The cottage is so homely and well equipped we have wanted for nothing! Fantastic views at Strumble Head. Quiet beach good for dogs - visit Aber Mawr. St David's - well worth the trip even with dogs as you can walk to 'dog friendly beach'. Local walks from the door are great to discover more about the location. Really enjoyed our week.

Thanks for the warm welcome and comforts of Trefechan Wen. We and the dogs had a wonderful time exploring the area, especially the beach at Newport which made a perfect racetrack for two whippets. An amazing find was The Ship Inn at Lower Town, Fishguard. If you like a warm welcome for yourselves and dogs into an old fashioned village pub, try here. Beware though - no food, its a proper pub. Thanks again for a wonderful week.

A wonderful holiday! Weather superb and the cottage was cosy and well equipped. Lots to do and see:- Dinas Head walk, Boat ride round Ramsey Island to see seals and pups, Watching the sun setting at Strumble lighthouse and the surprise event of a pop of harbour poproise swimming by. Magical! "The Shed" at Porthgain for v good fish and chips. + much, much more.

Our first time here, and it has been wonderful. The walks from the cottage are great. Also did Pentre Ifan, Dinas Island and the Porthgain to Abereiddy loop. The last one gives you the chance to stop at The Shed for fish and chips (which were amazing). Both of the dogs loved the cottage and the walks.

Don't want to go home tomorrow! Such a lovely, comfortable cottage. Our little girl has loved it, especially charging around the garden with the dog and going out every morning to see the horses. Highly recommended Dyfed Shire Horse Centre whether wet or sunny. Bay To Remember is a must - fabulous dolphin watching trips. We saw two calves. Mwnt Bay in Cardigan is beautiful and you can dolphin watch from a little peak there too. Dangerously close to Melin Tregwynt Mill. Perfect week.

Had a wonderful week in a great cottage! Lovely tranquil spot but in easy reach of all we wanted. Wonderful weather all week and spent a lot of time exploring the amazing beaches, Newport beach being a favourite. Would recommend the Thousand Islands trip (whales and Dolphins).

We spent a great, relaxing and amazing time in your lovely and warm cottage. Our highlights were: Dinas Head walk; Boat trip around Ramsey Island; Strumble Head walk; Blue lagoon close to Abereiddy; Porthgain "The Sloop Inn"; And the coast nearby the cottage. We had great luck with the weather and have seen a lot of seabirds, seals and dolphins.

This is our first time holidaying in Pembrokeshire and we have thoroughly enjoyed our time here. The beaches and rugged nature walks are second to none. We lost count of the beaches and coves we explored throughout the week. The Fishguard show topped off our week splendidly. A very friendly and welcoming area, we will definitely return in the future.

A lovely week away, great location & perfect accommodation. We have enjoyed exploring the local area & our two golden retrievers are worn out but so happy! Such a stunning coastline. We travelled a little further one day to Pembroke Castle & can recommend it as dog friendly.

Thank you!! We have had a great week in your gorgeous cottage. The weather was fab!! This is the first time we have been here and we will be back for sure. We visited several places recommended in this (visitor) book including St Davids, 'The Sloop', Marloes Sands. Great place for dog lovers with many dog friendly beaches.

Had a brilliant week at this lovely cottage. It was our first holiday with our 2 year old cocker spaniel and his first trip to the seaside! He loved it and so did we! Nice local walks especially up to the Neolithic site. Took coastal path from Porthgain to a nearby beach for Barney's first swim in the sea. We also visited St Davids, Newport, Solva and Newgale Beach. We also enjoyed a pint (or 2) at The Ship in Lower Fishguard, a great dog friendly traditional pub. Many thanks.

Characterful cottage finished to a high standard and located in a peaceful position perfect for accessing the coast path. Garden is completely enclosed and a good size for the dogs (and humans). Welcomed with cake and eggs....perfect!

Godfrey Bloom - 26th May 2018

This lovely little cottage is kept spotlessly clean. We were made to feel very welcome along with our two dogs. On arrival there was milk, sugar, tea and coffee along with an Almond cake! We chose to sleep downstairs and the twin beds both have wonderful mattresses, which were very comfortable! The private rear garden is fully enclosed and therefore ideal for dogs. The location is perfect for walks and drives out to explore this beautiful area.

Really special little cottage, made to feel at home and dogs welcome too!!
