    The cottage was fantastic immaculately clean, comfortable and welcoming. In a tranquil location, surrounded by spectacular countryside and spectacular views. There was a warm welcome from the owners who were very knowledgeable about the local area, with great advice as to walks or where to visit and how to get around on the local buses. Really loved the calm laid back area of Fishguard.

    Just arrived home after a wonderful week in this beautiful cottage. Cosy, clean, comfortable and with everything you need to make for a perfect base, from which to explore the stunning Pembrokeshire area. Owners on hand if you need them, but give you plenty of privacy for you to enjoy their quiet haven. Cannot recommend highly enough.

    Just a couple of highly things. Hot bath tap ran as a dribble - took over an hour to get enough water in the bath for a shallow soak. After the first half hour, tried running shower head too and ended up using saucepan from kitchen. Also, broken bottom drawer on chest of drawers, broken peg in porch, and one of the two dining chairs was so loose and wobbly on every joint, it was dangerous to sit on. Also, seat of sofa was collapsed at one end making it very uncomfortable. If all those things were fixed, a new sofa provided, and Wi-Fi was provided, I would recommend it.

    The owners were charming and helpful. The coast line was stunning and good for walks. The accomodation was just right for us. Espeically as we have a large dog. The only problem was that the pub at Dinas Head did not permit dogs and the pub at Fishguard did not serve food. Neither were withing easy walking distance, as suggested, and both involve walking on a busy road or hiking along the coastal path , which would have been hazardous at night and would have taken ages.
