Guest Book Comments

The cottage is lovely in a perfect location, one of the best we have stayed in, in fact, and immaculately clean. Guest service within the cottage should have been much better though. Poor instructions for equipment. Dilapidated and dirty garden furniture, overheated accommodation, with no ability to alter the settings, broken shower and towel rail, no extras like a pint of milk or flowers or handwash. Only 2 smallish towels each for a whole week. If more attention had been given to these important details I would have rated the cottage 5.

A high quality house, very well equipped, in a location which is remote with excellent all-round views.

D Richardson - 21st July 2018

Troed Y Garn is a beautiful, well equipped, very clean and comfortable cottage and is located in a lovely quiet backwater ( but not isolated) and with easy access to the rest of Pembrokeshire. There is a lovely secure garden for dogs and great views around. Our week was everything we hoped for.

J Young - 21st May 2018

The property is in a great location and is very comfy and homely. It is a nice cheerful and bright property and a great supply of utensils etc. One can simply find walks on the door step, no need to use the car all the time.

S Battersby - 1st February 2018

Lovely house in a beautiful location with walks from the door and fantastic beaches only a short drive away. Spacious enclosed garden (not overlooked) fabulous for the dog. House was very clean and equipped with everything you could want. The large entrance provides a good boot room and great doggy sleeping area. Two comfortable sitting rooms, both with TVs, and two dining areas make it ideal for a family or group of friends. The king size and twin bedrooms are at one side of the first floor, along with the spacious bathroom, while the double ensuite is at the other end and quite private. We took my mum-in-law and she was very comfortable in the double ensuite, while we enjoyed the fabulous master bedroom. We had a lovely stay and would go again.

We've had a wonderful week in this beautiful house. Everything is so carefully thought out to make this place so comfortable. We appreciated it being spotlessly clean. There just wasnt enough time for all the things on our "to do" list so we'll ave to come back

What a warm, wonderful, welcoming home to come back to after a day being lashed by the weather. Under-floor heating in a kitchen is essential for 2 Somerset black labs. We are sad to leave, you have provided us with treasured memories of the close of 2017 and a stellar start to 2018.

About the Area
Garn Fawr & Garn Fechan
  • This is a naturalists, walkers, bird watchers, artists and photographers paradise - walk along the country lane and take the path which wends its way to the top of the rocky outcrop of Garn Fawr, (crowned by an iron age fort) and spread beneath you is a breathtaking panorama - a patchwork of ancient fields and the rugged coast line as it sweeps majestically down to St Davids Head.
Pwllderi, Strumble Head & Pembrokeshire Coast Path
  • Pwllderi and Strumble Head are fantastic spots for seal watching, particularly in the early autumn when the seals with their pups can be seen in large numbers on the gravel beaches below.
Bird Watching Observatory
  • Strumble Head, with its island offshore lighthouse, is on a migratory path for a diversity of sea birds and there is a bird watching observatory on the cliff-tops here. This is also a wonderful place for spotting marine life as the seas below the cliffs teem with fish, minky whales, dolphins and porpoises.
Fishguard Music Festival
  • A delightful annual festival of music and events held in Fishguard, St Davids Cathedral and Rhos y Gilwen Mansion. Troed y Garn is well placed for music lovers to take full advantage of this excellent annual event held every July
John Piper Artist & Print Maker 1903 - 1992
  • John Piper discovered Pembrokeshire through his wife Myfanwy Evans during the 1930's. He used his cottage just above Troed y Garn crouching under the fortified crags of Garn Fawr as a retreat and studio making many paintings and prints of local scenes.
Abermawr & Aberbach
  • Families will love to explore Abermawr & Aberbach, twin sand and shingle beaches backed by magical ancient woodlands, (NT) which are carpeted with bluebells, sorrel, anemones and wild garlic in the spring.
Goodwick & Ocean Lab
  • Goodwick nearby is a little hillside village with a Post Office, good village shop, chemist, doctor's surgery, a couple of pubs and the Fishguard Bay Hotel which has a wonderfully preserved Victorian interior.
  • There is an easily accessible gently sloping sand and shingle beach overlooking the harbour, (from where there is a daily ferry service to Ireland).
  • Ocean Lab run by the Sea Trust has a sea life exhibition with video of whales and dolphins and other exciting marine life filmed locally. Also aquariums, showing some fascinating aquatic sea creatures including a real octopus. Children will also love the lab's mascot 'Ollie the Octopus', and the soft play area for the under fives.
  • Jude's Cafe in Ocean Lab serves quality reasonably priced food and beverages all day. Enjoy cakes, coffee. and locally made real dairy ice creams while gazing at views of the bay.
  • Do visit this pretty little waterside cove on the Pembrokeshire Coastal Path. The Old Sailors Inn is a lovely place for refreshments. A dramatic walk around Dinas Head starts here.
Boat Trips
  • Visit St Davids or Martins Haven to book boat trips out to the internationally important bird islands of Ramsey and Skomer. Expect to see stunning coastal views and myriad seabirds as well as seals and dolphins.

Newport little Coastal Town
  • Do visit the bustling little town of Newport full of interesting shops, cafes, pubs & restaurants and it has a glorious sandy beach designated a conservation area.
  • Fishguard (see Lonely Planet Guide) is a small market town which has a range of small shops, 2 supermarkets, a cinema, leisure centre, restaurants/cafes and pubs. The newly restored Marine Walk around the clifftops has fabulous views. This was the site of the 'Last Invasion of Britain in 1797' and a tapestry worked by local needlewomen commemorating this event is displayed in the library - well worth a visit. Fishguard Farmers Market is held every Saturday and a weekly market every Thursday.
Miles Pepper's West Wales Arts Centre & Cafe Celf, Fishguard
  • The arts centre has changing exhibitions of quality work by national and international artists and crafts people. There is a reading room and an excellent gastro cafe. Look out for supper evenings with musical recitals.
Nant y Coy Mill, Treffgarne

Pembrokeshire Creations Gallery and Gift Shop at the Mill offer a wide choice of beautiful products created by local craftsmen. The cosy little cafe serves breakfasts, teas, barista coffees and delicious cakes as well as a lunch menu with an ever-changing Specials board.D

Sealyham Activity Centre, Wolfscastle
  • Experience a range of activities suitable for everyone both on land and water. Choose from climbing, surfing, canoeing, archery or even coasteering which is the most popular and very exciting.
Family Days Out
  • Oakwood, Heatherton Sports Park, Folly Farm, Picton Castle, Scolton Manor, Castle Henllys and Manor Wildlife Park are all great family days out and all within an easy drive.
