Lovely living and outdoor areas

  • 3 out of 5
A lovely converted 'cottage' in spacious grounds. We enjoyed staying in this sympathetically converted home. The living areas were a joy, but the sleeping arrangements were not suitable for our party : a beautiful double bedroom and two small beds in smaller bedrooms. We were a group of three women and these sleeping arrangements would much better suit a couple or a small family. The sofa bed was in the living area which had little barriers against the early morning light. However, this is a dilemma, which as a group of walking women, we struggle to solve year after year and property after property. The manager was friendly and helpful and we would definitely recommend this property to friends and relatives.

Had a nice time, thank you

  • 3 out of 5
The cottage is very nice... in it own grounds, no neighbours (apart from adjoining main house but was empty when we were there), so very quiet and peacful place to stay. Views of the sea from some windows and corner of main house garden. Lovely big garden, divided into different areas, with barbeque facility and table and chairs. Cottage is old style with brick walls (painted white), very nice. Large lounge. We had a very relaxing time. Lovely walks from the house, can recommend the walk down to the sea and along coast to Newport. Newport has a lot of very nice restaurants and a few traditional pubs. Good location for driving to other areas like New Quay, Cardigan and Fishguard. Cottage also has a log fire, but we didnt use it.

The only problem we had, which is why it got 3 stars and not 4, is the main bedroom had a damp smell, and we had a baby which we we worried about sleeping in a damp room, and although it states wireless internet, it is a very weak signal on the stairs which cuts out a bit. Apart from that it was lovely and would get 4 stars from us othewise. Thanks for a nice break in a nice cottage.

Owner's Response: Thank you for coming and reviewing the cottage. It sounds as though you had a great time apart from some damp smell? I am certainly very sorry about this and it had been a time when we had just washed the carpets and done some work on the wall there. We are so very sorry about this and can reassure anybody that there has been no problem since then. Every winter we do a lot of improvements work and some outside work in the summer. We would not keep getting the 4 star rating otherwise. Welcome back for another holiday.

March visit

  • 4 out of 5
We stayed in March '09, 2 of us + dog. Cottage was good, spacious living area & open plan which was nice, lovely views.
Everything was pretty much as described, dishwasher bit smelly- might improve with use?
Bedrooms comfy. Property well equipped.
Adjoining farmyard fine & didn't bother us but we weren't expecting it, poss a problem for some?
Good location, lovely beaches & walks all easy to access & village sells pretty much all you need. I think it would be fine for young children as stairs could be "gated" & deck = safe playspace (also good for dog!).
We didn't use public transport but it seemed plentiful!

Owner's Response: Thanks for coming and writing a review. Yes the stairs and deck are gated for children and dogs. The location is ideal for walks from the cottage. The garden has had several improvements since you last came as well. The dishwasher is new and we replace all of the equipment and appliances sometimes to keep up the standards and comply with our 4 star Welsh Tourist Board rating. Welcome back for another holiday.

Relaxing with a seaview

  • 4 out of 5
Our intention for the booking was to be our base for going out walking and relaxing for the week, with the potential for going out for a drink and not having to drive back... this it did fulfil very well.
The property was clean and warm, nicely laid out. One main window overlooked the bay direction from the side of the property and another main window (balcony) overlooked the hills. A smaller window overlooked a cattle yard, luckily these were quiet cows.
Newport town was easily walkable, a short section of which being along the main road. The coastal path was also quick to reach and a public footpath straight up the hill behind from the property.
Information on local attractions, walks and maps was available in the cottage which provided very useful, showing many walks straight out from the property.
The kitchen was kitted out well with equipment as was the rest of the cottage.
We'd definitely recommend a stay here for some peace and quite.

Owner's Response: Thank you for coming and enjoying the very beautiful time of February which can be great walking weather and it can be very cosy by the wood stove. Yes it is an easy walk to the little town of Newport which has ever increasing facilities of good shops and restaurants. I am very glad that you enjoyed your stay so welcome back another time.

Wild and Magical

  • 5 out of 5
Wow! This has been such a great escape for us. To get out of the city into this incredible wild landscape. We were really able to get calm here and take a breather from it all.
We adventured during the day, and spent evenings around the woodstove in your cosy inglenook. Walking along the cliffs just down the road was so invigorating. The coast path just keeps going. The ever changing lanscape, the sun and blustery wind. Everything is so wild here. The woods just up from your house are incredible too. There is a real sense of magic there. So many bluebells, little winding trees, and bubbling strems. im sure that there must be some elves living there. You have done an amazing job of preserving the charachter of this new place, but accommadating our modern needs. i can see why the national tourist board awarded you 4 stars. You have provided everything we need and more, at higher standards than we could have expected, but it has been so much more than that. It has been a real taste of the wild, and an escape to the magical. Thank You! We WILL be back.

Leider enttäuscht

  • 2 out of 5
Wir können dieses Ferienhaus nur bedingt weiterempfehlen: das Obergeschoss war gut ausgestattet, wir hatten jedoch gehofft, dass Feriencottage etwas sauberer vorzufinden. Die Terasse war schön, aber der dazugehörige Garten nicht gepflegt. Die Räume waren entgegen unseres Eindruckes im Internet sehr viel kleiner und im Erdgeschoss auch etwas feucht. Kellerasseln und Spinnen waren unsere täglichen Gäste.
Die Umgebung ist für Wanderungen sehr schön und der nahegelegene hübsche Ort Newport bietet sehr gute Restaurants.

Owner's Response: Während ich bin froh, dass Sie gekommen sind und festgestellt, das obere Stockwerk gut ausgestattete Es tut mir leid, dass einige Details waren nicht zu Ihrer Erwartung. Die Reinigungskräfte sind jetzt doppelt geprüft und haben ein hohes Maß an Sauberkeit. Die Bilder der Zimmer sind jetzt auf der neuen Website. Sie sind klein, aber sehr komfortabel. Eine Wand im Erdgeschoss hatte ein Problem, das bald gelöst wurde, nachdem Sie gekommen sind. Es hat keine Asseln, da bemerkt, aber die gelegentliche Spinne ist Teil des Landlebens. Alle Spinnweben vor jedem Besuch gereinigt. Ja das Dorf von Newport ist herrlich und die Restaurants sind in Anzahl und Qualität zunimmt.

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.
