Spacious, comfortable and relaxing in a lovely location. Spotless and well stocked, with everything you need for a great holiday. Well secured garden, so didn't need to worry about my dog who loved the garden.

We very much enjoyed our return visit to this lovely comfortable cottage. The week started with sunshine & ended with snow - but the amazing cottage was always warm & welcoming to come back to.

Recommend Poppit sands and Newport beaches. A week of relaxation!

A warm, comfortable, spcious well equipped house. Despite mixed weather we have had an active holiday and recommend Somethings Cooking fish and chips restaurant and take away at Letterston, The tearoom, Siop Fach, in Mathry and Thirty Five Cafe in Solva for meals when you are out and about. Caretakers were both friendly and helpful.

We have loved our week here. The house is lovely especially the Garden Room. We have had excellent weather all week and made god use of the beaches. All beautiful - Poppit Sands especially is worth a visit. We had excellent evening meals in Crug Glas and Cwtch. Cwtch was busy so booking is definitely essential. Overall a fantastic week and we'd love to come back.
