Brilliant for larger groups.

  • 5 out of 5
Meant to post this nearer to our visit but better late . . . .
We stayed in Sunny Retreat Cottage for one week then moved to the adjoining property, The Old Rectory, for week two as we were joined by 5 other families. My first night was spent with paper, pencil & a bottle of wine working out the logistics of who sleeps where. I managed to place 21 persons into 21 beds without a complaint! Our only disappointment was finding that the cottage had one double and two single rooms + a sofa bed, so we could not use the cottage bedrooms to accommodate couples as we had intended. Either it was not clear from the description or I read too much into the “3 bedrooms, sleeps 6” heading. Little things like that do not deter us so we moved into the Old Rectory where I slept on the floor of a single room (on a mattress) as my wife had bagged the bed. This way we were able accommodate all couples, families and their dogs (who slept in the utility room). There are goods plans on the website of all rooms in the Old Rectory; maybe one for the cottage would be helpful.
Blessed by the sunshine, we never used the large dining table (except for breakfast) but had a lot of use of the magnificent slate top table & barbecue with spectacular views over Newport Sands. We went in the sea a couple of times & I have come to the conclusion that the Irish Sea never gets warm but we had a great time on the lovely beach at Pwllgwaelod (opposite direction from Newport) & the equally lovely Old Sailor’s pub behind the beach.
Using both properties for a large group worked well, as people could have their privacy or be all together as they wished. The properties are very well equipped and, apart from the small oversight of forgetting to turn on the hot water for us after the property had been empty, there was ample hot water for all. The garden was magnificent and great for children to run around in. We were able to walk a footpath from the back of the property straight up onto Carningli Mountain (a must), crossing the interestingly named Ffordd Bedd Morris road on the way.
Newport town is full of nice pubs and good eateries. Some a bit pricey if you’re thinking ‘holiday grub’ but it seems that Newport is becoming a centre for eating excellence. The Canteen is a welcome new addition specialising in homemade pizzas and burgers.
We really enjoyed our stay at The Old rectory & were genuinely sorry to have to leave. Maybe we can get a big enough group together for a return visit.

Perfect holiday house

  • 5 out of 5
Twelve in a house can make for a hectic weekend. Not at the Old Rectory. The house was perfect. There was space for everyone all together and to find quiet spaces. It is well equipped with a properly kitted out kitchen, with loads for fridge space, which when catering for large numbers, you really appreciate. The beds were great with lovely linen. The table seated everyone comfortably. For us, that is what you want in a holiday home. Feeling so comfortable, and so welcomed was an added extra that I didn't expect but one that really made the holiday for us all. It is also in a great location, a short walk from the beach and the town. In short, whether a large family or a group of friends, I couldn't recommend this house more.

We loved this place!

  • 5 out of 5
I hired the Old Rectory and the Sunny Retreat for my wife’s 40th and it was perfect.

We comfortably slept 18 and three dogs across the two adjoining buildings. The gardens are beautiful and the views are spectacular. We had a barbeque on the grounds (the local butcher T G Davies is well worth a visit if you’re thinking of doing the same) then sat around a camp fire and finished the evening with fireworks.

The local beaches are perfect for a bit of kayaking and coasteering, and the walks around the area are beautiful.

We had a lovely week. The owners were extremely accommodating, the properties are welcoming, comfortable and well equipped, and the Pembrokeshire is genuinely beautiful.

I can not recommend this place enough.

We loved it.

Terrific Staycation weekend

  • 5 out of 5
This was the second time we visited the Old Rectory. With 9 adults, 2 teenagers and two youngsters it was the perfect place. The property is fantastic, full of character, plenty of room for everyone and a terrific garden to relax, play and barbeque in, with fabulous views of the coast. Everything you need to cook meals for everyone, loads of storage space, and plenty of room to make a mess! The house was clean and well maintained, wood for the stove or barbeque was provided, and we picked damsons from the garden and made jam! Easy walking distance to Newport with its pubs and restaurants. Great beach. Would not hesitate to recommend but keep it quiet as we'd like to return soon!

Beautiful Place to Visit!

  • 5 out of 5
This was an incredible place for my family to visit. The land is beautiful and the houses have such character. The Cottage was my favorite with cute windows that overlooked the gardens. Thanks so much for all your help during our stay, making our vacation so easy. We hope to return sooner rather than later!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for coming and sharing your experience. yes, each room is very different from another with 8 bedrooms with a view to the gardens and sea beyond welcoming the morning sun and one to the courtyard.
Welcome back to see continued improvements in the grounds and in the house and cottage to keep well above the WTB4* rating which is secured each year.

Pembrokeshire is a place of magic, mystery & enchantment with wild landscapes, imbued with five-thousand years of deeply layered history and culture. From the Neolithics through to Merlin and the Knights of the Round Table, our area was of great spiritual significance to its early inhabitants, and an abundance of ancient monuments, relics, and sacred sites still surround us today.

A web of public footpaths take you right from our doorstep through incredible and varied landscapes. Explore fairy-tale wooded valleys, heather-clad open moorlands, the charged Bluestone outcrops of Carn-Ingli (Angel Mountain*), Newport's* Mile-long beach, and the wild windswept clifftops of the renowned Pembrokeshire coast path.

The medieval town of Newport remains in another era. The Norman church and castle stand proudly over the tightly winding streets, with family run shops and gnarly old pubs still bustling with true welsh charm.

Other Activities: The 180 mile long Pembrokeshire Coast Path offers superb hiking in pristine landscape.
