Superb barn conversion. As soon as you drive up and see the view it is an instant WOW. Due to Covid we were slightly nervous but our fears were allayed when we saw how clean the property was with hand sanitisers and information supplied. We felt safe there.High quality conversion that is sympathetically done. We loved the use of Oak everywhere and the carpentry was of a high standard. Top quality fittings and well furnished with everything you need. It rained a lot whilst we were there but it was warm and cosy to sit in the lounge with the log burner that we did not feel at all disappointed. The garden really is dog friendly and has a rail fence and wire to keep even the smallest dog in. Also there ae 3 fields for the dogs to run in. .To give a rounded view the bedroom was a bit smaller than we are used to and with only one bathroom a family may struggle. As there was only two of us it was fine.We have booked for 2 weeks next year. A first for us as we have stayed in many many cottages over the years but never wanted to go back. i think that says it all.

An ideal location for getting around, with a spectacular view! You can't beat Strumble Head for walks and wildlife and Pembrokeshire is our favourite destination. The teashop, Siop Fach, in Mathry is highly recommended - generous portions and friendly staff.
