  • "We absolutely loved our 2 week holiday spent at The old Farm Shop in May."

    The property has been converted to a really high standard by the owners and is a credit to them. We found it to be very clean & well kept, with everything you need for your holiday. It has wonderful countryside views over the field to the rear. We booked the property as we were looking for somewhere quiet and away from the hustle and bustle and it looked like it would be peaceful (when I looked on Google earth before booking) …which it was! We loved its location and particularly relaxing there after a long day exploring the area. Luckily the weather was great, so we ate outside on the picnic table most evenings, it was lovely to have the hot tub too! The owners are close by and very helpful, lovely people…they gave us lots of great recommendations for the area, as we weren’t that familiar with Pembrokeshire ….but what an area! there are loads of dog friendly beaches & coastal walks so it was perfect for us. We would definitely book again! Thank you so much. Emma Peter and Cookie

    Thank you for your lovely feedback and we look forward to meeting up again x Property Owner

  • "The Old Farm Shop is a very nice, comfortable, clean and well equipped cottage with the owners living close by to provide any information required about the property or area."

    The cottage is in a good central point for exploring Pembrokeshire and not too far from lovely beaches and costal walks. Narberth is very close and is a lovely town with lots of nice shops including a very good butchers and cake shop. We had a lovely stay with our little Shorkie dog with lots to do and beautiful scenery - we will definitely be returning - thank you Geraint and Sian X

  • "Enjoyed our break in Wales and weather was a bonus."

    Cottage is poorly maintained. Tv reception extremely poor and at times unwatchable. No electric kettle and barbecue supplied as shown in listing. Decking is extremely dangerous and rotting away behind hot tub, and hot tub cover has not been mended as commented in earlier reviews.

    Thank you for your feedback. We're sorry to hear about some of the comments you raised. The TV does have a good reception, however it can be subject to weather conditions, and so it is advisable to adjust the ariel to get the signal back. Whilst there is no electric kettle, there is a stovetop kettle available for use - we can only apologise if you missed this. In regards to the BBQ, we did have this removed from the listing and would have thought you'd been notified of this. The decking is wooden as depicted in the images on the listing, and so it is normal for any decking of this type to become slippery when wet, we just advise to be cautious when walking on this area. In regards to your comments about the decking "rotting"- we are looking at having this replaced during the winter season, and will also have a look at the hot tub handles. We can only apologise for your feelings on the property, I note that the issues are centred on the outside area to which we do take a pride in to ensure there is a comfortable and relaxing space for Guests to enjoy, and have not received such comments previously.

    We love The Old Farm Shop. So peaceful and just what we needed before a busy start back at school. I was visiting with just my children and it was wonderful to know that if we needed anything the owners were so close by.

  • "Found removing the Hot tub lid awkward where the frame was missing where must have been damaged previously."

    Suggested Benefits . Blinds behind Tv area as difficult to see with sunny glare. Had a few minor issues with wifi dropping out where the router is based in bedroom and an access point used is Powerline based. A hardwired cat6 cable to a wireless access point wired from the router would give a full incoming signal . Overall an enjoyable and comfy stay with the grandchildren and our dog. Friendly and welcoming hosts close by .

  • "Wonderful stay in a lovely cottage."

    It has everything you need and is spotless. The setting is off the beaten track, making it just perfect if you want peace and quiet. Very relaxing. It’s five mins or so from the A40, meaning everywhere in Pembrokeshire is easily accessible - and if you’ve never been then go! Everyone is so friendly. Geraint and Sian are excellent, friendly hosts - and if you’re a rugby fan then ask Geraint about his playing days!

    The location was very peaceful which is just what we needed when we are so busy at home. The cottage catered perfectly for us, our baby and the dog. There are so many lovely walks and dog friendly beaches nearby. The log burner was our favourite feature and we are very grateful to the owners for restocking the logs so regularly given we stayed during the coldest week of the year.

    Spacious accommodation with everything you need. It's great that everything is on one level especially for our miniature dachshund who's not great with steps. The hot tub is amazing, especially gazing up at the stars on a clear night. It's also in great location and close to Tenby and Narberth which are two of our favourite places. Will definitely book again.

    Very easy to find and in beautiful settings. I highly recommend. A few things I would point out for information though, if you are a dog owner looking to book here: 1) you have to drive to all walks as all of the local fields are privately owned. 2) there are no scales to weigh out dog food. 3) there are very few local eateries that allow dogs inside. That said, I'd still book again with my dog
