Guest Book Comments

Great property and location. Was advertised as having Wi-Fi but we only had this for the first night then went completely. It's not a priority for us to have Wi-Fi but I would imagine it is for some so they should check service is more constant if advertised. A couple of hooks on back if bedroom and bathroom door would be useful. Otherwise a fabulous property

A trusted customer - 24th September 2018

Temple Barn was a beautiful property which contained everything you could possibly need, it was very comfortable and the view towards Strumble Head was stunning. The living room/sunroom was a lovely addition to the original building and was flooded with natural light. The position of the barn tucked in off the main road was perfect and peaceful.

Lovely welcoming, very warm cottage with a lovely view . The layout is great and well thought out . Spotlessly clean . Everything you could need is provided

First Class. Clean. Well equipped. Good location.

P Roberts - 4th February 2018

Third visit to temple! This time we thought we would try Temple Barn for a bit more room and sea views! Although we did miss the huge bed in Temple Cottage! Views from both cottages are spectacular.

The barn has not disappointed and both cottages are equipped to a very high standard. Glorious weather, well it did rain for two days but hey it is Wales!Plenty of good places (pubs, coffee shops) to pass the time even with an energetic cocker spaniel.

The Ship at Trefin warm and friendly as ever, as is the Mill Cafe and fish and chips from The Shed in Porthgain are a must to eat in or take away!!

We love this part of Pembrokeshire and will be back, maybe we will try the farmhouse next time!!!

A well equipped, comfortable place to relax and unwind. Beautiful view and a glorious part of the world. Sunset on Abermawr beach is a must! Back in October! Hurrah!

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.

Fabulous cottage, have previously stayed at temple Cottage - all first class! Great views and location. Good weather apart from Wednnesday. Highlight - the seal pups at Strumble Head. We will be back!

Fantastic holiday. Cottage excellent with 2 toddlers able to run around and play in the garden safely. Such great views and gorgeous evenings sitting in the living room. Lots to explore including the most beautiful coast. Will be returning! Amazing sunsets!

Fabulous cottage (best shower ever). Superb weather and great beaches. Newport Sands was the best one for the dog. Definitely coming back to this area. We had a brilliant time.
