    Very friendly and helpful hosts. The cottage is located in lovely grounds - very well situated for exploring Pembrokeshire. We would like to stay again at sometime in the future. The instructions on how to find the cottage could be much clearer (if they had just said stay on main road A487 out of Fishguard for 1 mile going towards Cardigan - it would have been a lot easier to find) - the driveway to the cottage is difficult to find especially as the turn off from the main road has very fast traffic.

    We would recommend this cottage as it was lovely and peaceful and the owners were friendly and welcoming. It had a lovely comfortable bed and the cottage was spacious. Nice modern cooker, and all you needed in the kitchen area. We have stayed in many cottages in England and have not had to provide our own towels, which increases the packing space needed. This and the lack of a shower were the only downsides. There was a pompette attachment, but this did not work very well to get the right temperature of water. Just a shower off the bath taps would be good enough.

    A Little gem: This cottage is better equipped than you might normally expect from a holiday cottage including central heating should the evenings get cold. The surrounding gardens are very well tended and very peaceful. With the sun out it was lovely to sit in the garden and peacefully read a book. The cottage was in a lovely position to get to Fishguard, Newport and Haverford West. There are lovely coastal walks very close as well. We had a really lovely time staying in this peaceful location and could even take our dog!
