The cottage was lovely and clean but best of all the location was great to enjoy the coastal path. Mr Dan Churchill - 17th June 2018
Our cottage was stylish and our every need catered for.
The Coastal Path is a must- we walked from Nine Wells into Solva. St Davids unmissable. Loved Caerfai beach. Had excellent fish and chips in a groovy 70's caff in Pembroke.Couple from Reading - 6th September 2017
Absolutely stunning. Especially sitting in the garden watching the sun go down, overlooking the sea. The perfect getaway from everyday stresses. The cottage was ideally placed for our needs and had everything you could have wanted. It was clean and tidy, and Rosemary was very helpful and knowledgeable. Thank you. We walked the coastal path to St Davids, ate at the Royal George in Solva. It was perfect.Couple from South Wales - 9th May 2017
Very homely & comfortable. Made to feel welcome by the owner, who was very attentive to my needs & on hand to sort out a few problems I encountered & dealt with them quickly with the minimum of fuss.
Tips: Relax & enjoy the area for what it gives!! Don't plan anything - just enjoy the days as they come.Sara from Axminster, Devon - 25th September 2016
Brillant, a warm welcome on arrival. Well maintained cottage with magnificent views, with local foot paths leading to coastal path. Tranquility at its best. Coastal walks are amazing, great beaches for surfing.Clarkia from Oxted - 3rd September 2016
