  • "Fantastic property in a great location."

    Nice touch to leave coffee, milk and biscuits. Lovely comfortable property that we really enjoyed staying in. Thanks so much.

  • "Location was tricky to find there is another Rose Cottage up the road, which coursed a little confusion."

    Rose Cottage was perfect for a four person 3 day writing retreat. The proximity of the river and open spaces was an added bonus.

    Thank you for booking Rose Cottage - delighted to hear you enjoyed your stay and found it a restful and productive writing break. As we are the cottage located closest to the public car park we will ask Sykes to amend guest instructions to make this clearer. The nearby estuary is beautiful and an easy walk from the cottage - definitely a hidden gem. There are otters in that stretch of river and the local rowing teams can often be spotted training up and down the river. We look forward to welcoming you back in the future. Property Owner

  • "Beautiful cottage, in a lovely area."

    Plenty of crockery and cutlery, nice soft furnishings and comfortable beds. We managed to watch Netflix and bbc iplayer but couldn’t get the free sat box to work or get normal channels, but that didn’t bother us. My only suggestion would be that it would have been nice to have had a couple of single beds instead of one of the double beds, and a wardrobe . Would definitely recommend and would love to return sometime x

    Thank you very much for your feedback and really pleased you enjoyed your stay. We will look into what the issue is with the freesat box and get that fixed. Also thank you for the idea regarding the single beds and wardrobe- we do take these ideas on board and although we can’t always implement everything we will try our best. Look forward to welcoming you back in the future. Update: We have replaced the Sky dish which has resolved the freesat problem. Property Owner

  • "The property is looking a bit tired."

    We don't have dogs and the smell of dogs on the living room furniture and blankets was very strong. There is a lot of dust due to the large number of (lovely) knicknacks everywhere. The ensuite bathroom door doesn't shut and the boiler seems to switch on and off throughout the night. One set of bedding had bloodstains on the sheets and other stains on the duvet cover. The road is very noisy. Otherwise this is a large house with comfy beds, and ideal for a family who don't mind road noise and have dogs.

    Thank you for your feedback - we have changed our cleaning provider and housekeeping team in response to this - the property has now had a deep clean with the new provider (Oct 2023) and all soft furnishings inspected and/or replaced where needed. All linen and towels have been replaced with new as unfortunately standards were not maintained by the previous cleaning provider. The ensuite bathroom door is a bifold and whilst it does shut we will get this replaced. We hope that you enjoyed the rest of your stay and look forward to welcoming you back in the future.

  • "Holiday cottage was excellent, had everything we needed."

    Spacious enough with there only being two of us and two dogs, but a nice cosy feel about the cottage when we got back in the evenings after a days travelling/walking. Absolutely great location for exploring the West coast with Cardigan on the doorstep and Tenby/Fishguard/St. David’s all within 45mins drive. Village also had everything we needed, a local shop for supplies, a chip-shop, and two pubs within walking distance. The White Hart Community pub which is a 2min walk away served great food and there was a friendly atmosphere about the place. Would highly recommend the property.

    Thank you for your feedback - delighted you enjoyed your stay. St Dogmaels is a busy village with a lot going on. The farmers market held every Tuesday by the Coach House is worth exploring for fresh local produce if you have not been before - fresh bread, pastries, jams, and other farm produce. We look forward to welcoming you back in the future. Property Owner

  • "We enjoyed our stay at Rose Cottage."

    We appreciated that everything was provided. As we had small children and dogs the stair gates and baby equipment was very important. The house was to a very high spec and was clean and inviting. The location was quite central. There were local amenities if we ran out of anything. The Fish and Chip shop was to die for. Having not been to this particular location previously, I didn’t realise it is very picturesque. The beaches are nearby and clean and welcome dogs. I very much hope to return one day. Thank you for making our stay very comfortable, and stress free! Michelle Howell

    Thank you for your feedback and pleased you enjoyed your stay - St Dogmaels really is a beautiful village which is tucked away on the Teifi estuary - perfect for morning (or evening) strolls with the dogs. We look forward to welcoming you back in the future Property Owner

  • "It could have been cleaner to be fair."

    We had to clean both showers to start as they were covered in the orange scum build up from soap etc. The rim at the bottom was black and the shower drain hadn’t been cleaned from hair for ages. My daughter found 2 little blue pills under her bed! Not good with a baby in the room. Living room and crockery and bed linen were clean. The black bin in the shed was overflowing. Our black bag wouldn’t fit in. Unsure when the “ private “ collection takes place. Also it says put glass bottles in bottle bank in car park. That’s no longer there. So glass had to go in general waste in car park which is a recycling shame. Kitchen scissors and a potato peeler would be useful in the kitchen drawer. These are only small things but may be helpful comments. We did have a lovely stay though and would recommend and return.

Supermarket was very well stocked just a few doors away and the Community Pub where they make you very welcome (dogs included).

  • "Rose cottage location was fabulous, however damp in the upstairs bedroom meant we couldn’t use it !"

    The whole house is full of nic nacs that really need sorting with Covid it would make the cleaning so much easier as there is stuff shoved in cupboards and drawers everywhere and so the cleaning isn’t as it should be! No wardrobes , if some of the old large furniture was removed it would make space to hang stuff rather then on hooks! We found food left in freezer, recycling bins full from previous guests, very dusty everywhere , dehumidifier was full in the top room we couldn’t use, but our main issue was the en-suite, NO DOOR on it so if you sat on the toilet you were in full view of not just the occupants of the bedroom but also the house across the road! On saying that we had a lovely stay great watching the world go by in the front, everything you need for cooking ( when you finally find what your looking for ), right on the coastal path, The ferry Inn down the road was great atmosphere, location and food, farmers market on the Tuesday worth a visit as was the Farm shop down the road along with lots of other things including the chippy!

    Thank you for your feedback. Everyone has different taste and so the Nic-nacs comment is subjective. The website description matches the property. Regrettably, we are unable to fit wardrobes in the bedrooms so drawers and hanging space has been provided instead, as seen on the website. We have now amended the instructions for waste and recycling to make this clear for future guests. There was a slight damp issue in the top bedroom - which happens with old houses (Rose Cottage is approx 150 years old). The dehumidifier was a temporary measure which should not be required to run on a regular basis. We have changed cleaning provider and ensured they are aware to check and empty the dehumidifier if it has been used on each changeover. The ensuite door was this was unfortunately broken by a guest within the preceding weeks. Due to Covid it was difficult to obtain tradesmen to fit. However, pleased to say this is now fixed. Thank you again for leaving your comments. Property Owner

  • "Had a great break in Rose Cottage."

    Facilities were really good for our family of 5 adults, 3 children and one dog with plenty of space for all. The cottage was warm and comfortable and everything had been thought of to make it complete. The sunny front garden was a lovely place to sit and the locals in the village are really friendly. There is a weekly Tuesday market selling home baked bread, cakes etc. and vegetables together with crafts. St. Dogmaels is a real homely village with a riverside walk to the Ferry Inn which has a riverside decked area. There is a small playground in the village for young children too. The chip shop portions were a little small but on the whole the quality was ok but not the best we've had. There is an old water mill that gives guided tours and the ancient Abbey ruins are worth a look. Poppit Sands which has dunes is a short drive. The beach and walks at Mwnt (Nat. Trust) are a good place to spot dolphins and seals. All in all plenty to see and do. Tenby is one hours drive away. Would fully recommend Rose Cottage.

  • "The cream sofas in the cottage were not comfortable to sit on."

    The majority of the beds were also very hard, which made sleeping a challenge. Beds are easily rectified with a memory foam mattress topper. In the top bedroom there is no blind so light floods in in the morning. What is disappointing is that requests for a blind in there have been in the visitor's book in the lounge for over a year so it doesn't appear that the owners are listening to feedback. The bath was the most amazing bath I have been in. So deep and it fit my 6foot hustband in with room to spare. He never has a bath but was loving this one. Good selection of toys for the bath too although I would recommend the owners bin the squishy ones as they have black bacteria in them. It was grim to have it squirted on to me by my child on the first night. The other toys and books on offer in the lounge were a great addition. The location was really good. There were some lovely walks to do with the dogs and we ventured to Poppit Sands often. Food wise there is a lovely chippy over the road for first night tea. There is an Aldi and Tesco a short drive away. There is a Premier shop 2mins walk up the road for essentials. We also went into Cardigan and ate at Pizza Tipi and El Salsa. Both had a street food vibe but the food was amazing and would highly recommend. Our favourite place to visit was the Shire Horse farm. We got there for 11ish and got to experience everything in about 4 and a half hours. My little boy loved it. All in all we loved our holiday house and whilst I have made suggestions for improvement that is to help with the customer experience.

The property

Drive into the pretty coastal village of St Dogmaels and spot your end-terrace holiday cottage with its delightful front garden where you can sit awhile with a cup of tea and watch the world slowly go by or chat to the friendly locals.

Stepping into the glorious open plan living area you will be charmingly surprised at the space and high standard in front of you.

The cosy sitting area, the large dining table and the superbly-equipped kitchen all lends itself to being the hub of your holiday home, where great times will be spent together catching up and planning days out after family meals.

If you are looking for some quiet time, the wonderful bedrooms offer exquisite surroundings with comfortable beds, beautiful furnishings and the lovingly thought of extra touches will add to your delight in your room.

With one en-suite, a 4-piece family bathroom and a cloakroom, a boot room/utility room with a separate sink as well as a most useful outside shower, the facilities are perfect for the larger family holiday.

Set right next to a pathway access, within 50 yards of the world-famous coast path and a well-equipped children’s park, you can stroll directly from the cottage to play with the younger ones in your group or soak up scenic views and maybe walk to the sandy Poppit Sands beach.

In the village you can see a working mill and enjoy locally made foods, visit the local produce market or venture a mile to Cardigan where its magnificent castle has been restored to its former glory, a shopping trip will be a treat with small unique shops, an antiques market and much more.

Book a boat trip to spot dolphins or visit Castell Henllys Iron Age Fort or the Welsh Wildlife Centre.

Whatever you do on your days out, you will be only too pleased to return to Rose Cottage, wash off any sand and gather round the table for a meal before sitting down to relax together.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £150.

About the location


Cardigan 1 mile.

St Dogmaels is an ancient and tranquil village nestling peacefully around its ruined abbey at the mouth of the River Teifi on the totally unspoiled west Wales coast. One of its attractions is Y Felin, one of only two working watermills in Wales and retains the machinery installed in 1820. It is thought the mill was originally built by the monks of St Dogmaels' 12th century Abbey. The miller shows how the mill works and bread, flour and cakes can be purchased from the mill or you can enjoy tea and cakes and light lunches in the Coach House Café nearby. An award winning local produce market is held here every Tuesday and is well worth a visit. The village has a pub, a fish & chip shop, a Post Office, a cafe and a small museum at the abbey. There is also a pretty green and a millpond with ducks. Cardigan, a delightful ancient market town, is just over a mile away. This ancient town sits on the estuary of the River Teifi at the base of Cardigan Bay. Its unspoilt townscape and rich heritage provide a nostalgic backdrop to a thriving culture of arts and crafts, events and music festivals. Nearby is the wonderful Poppit Sands where you can relax on sunny days or enjoy invigorating walks in the cooler months, as well as exploring the beautiful Pembrokeshire Coast Path. St Dogmaels is the start or finish of the 186 mile Pembrokeshire Coast Path from St Dogmaels to Amroth. Visit Castell Henllys, the Iron Age Fort where everyone is encouraged to learn the ancient way of living, or visit the wonderful Shire Horse Farm to see how farming was before tractors. The Cardigan Bay dolphins can be seen off the bay on a regular basis and more active pursuits can be found at Cardigan Bay Active, including surfing, wildlife trips or coasteering. With scenic coastal, riverside and countryside walks and an array of other beaches and attractions all close by, this is a perfect holiday location all year round.
