Temple Cottage where we stayed 1st week September was lovely. Bigger than it looked in the photos, scrupulously clean, and lots of thoughtful and practical details have gone into making it an excellent and enjoyable stay. We plan to go back.

Stayed at this property several times now. A very clean, well maintained & well equipped luxury cottage in a great location too. Ideal for the two of us & our dog who loved the large enclosed garden. Our stay was during Covid & everything felt very safe with hand sanitisers provided in rooms & clear guidelines provided. Enjoyed our visit in lovely Pembrokeshire.

A spacious character property for two in a beautiful part of Wales with easy access to the coastal path. However we have stayed in similar properties in the area where attention to detail was better. We are used to a welcome pack of local goodies but this time we had a box of mince pies! The Sky TV did not work and by the end of the week we couldnt get BBC. The toilet was really difficult to flush and even the one jigsaw puzzle had a piece missing. On the Monday a really pleasant lady caretaker came to enquire if all was well and she did acknowledge toilet flush problem. We really enjoyed our holiday but you could say we have been spoiled in the past. My advice would be for the owners to just up their game a little to earn the 5 stars.
