This house was amazing if I could give it more than 5 I would. Beautifully clean, great welcome pack, everything of great quality, beds really comfortable. Yes it was next to the road as noted by previous reviewers but no disturbances completely safe garden for kids and dogs, we will be back.

Temple house is the most beautiful accommodation . Attention to detail is of excellent standard. Everything is in the house that you need. In a superb location to wonderful beaches in the area. Fab garden for your dogs and the adjacent fields they can just run their legs off in a safe enclosed environment. We are so pleased with this accommodation and would love to stay again . Oh and access to sky and package , so if the weather is not kind u can cuddle up to watch an array of films etc. The kitchen is so well equipped nothing has been left out. Excellent bedrooms with the most beautiful bedding . The owners have created a gruelling beautiful place to stay .

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.
