  • "The joining information was well written and easily understood."

    However in several irritating regards the property did not match the description. Although this was the most expensive holiday cottage we have used in this vicinity over many years, it has by far the least enjoyable. Little things mean a lot. The upper bathroom shower was u/s for several days. Dish Washer salt and rinse aid was deficient. Waste disposal bags and outside storage inadequate. Food waste bin already full. No sign of retractable clothes line. Outside "courtyard" unkempt. There are more ..... Generally it requires a critical assessment and subsequent rectification which would restore it to an acceptable standard.

    We try very hard to maintain the property to a high standard, but unfortunately there are some factors beyond our control. We’re extremely sorry there was a problem with the shower in the second bathroom but this was dealt with very swiftly – the problem was reported to us around 5pm on Monday evening, and was fixed the following morning. Pembrokeshire Council collect waste every two weeks, and between collections it is necessary to store waste in the large secure binstore outside the house – however guests shouldn’t need to access this during their stay. We weren’t aware that Mr Carr’s party were unable to find the retractable clothes line but have now updated our guest information book to give a more detailed description of where this is located.

  • "The house was perfect."

    Beautifully furnished and comfortable with large rooms and everything supplied for easy living. The house is in a good location for exploring the local area whether by car or walking. I think for cyclists you would need to be moderately fit as there are a lot of big hills around. We had a lovely stay and owing to lock down we ate mostly in the house with the fire burning.

    The house is extremely comfortable and well equipped, especially in the kitchen. I'd recommend it to anyone looking for luxury and comfort, that's within easy reach of shops, beaches and entertainment.

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.
