  • "Lovely cozy cottage with everything you need."

    We have two dogs and the private field adjoining the property was ideal for their morning and evening run. The owners were very attentive making sure we had everything we needed. Will be recommending to friends and family. Will definitely stay again.

    The cottage is perfect, cosy and ideally positioned for amazing costal walks. Its s in a small hamelet like village with lovely church. There is a friendly pub which serves lovely food a short walk away and also has a small friendly bar. A castle and tidal mill is also en route to the pub. Maurice and Nicola go above and beyond to ensure you have a perfect stay . We will definitely be back.

    Sorry that the double bed was too hard for you. It is a silentnight orthopeadic mattress and many guests that have used it have commented on how well they have slept . Just so all our mattress are different one of the others is a firm mattress and the other is a soft one. Property Owner

  • "We found the pans terribly warn need replacing."

    We found rotting vegetables in a straw draw. Found crumbs under sofa cushions toy car and hair bands under furniture and dog hairs!! So although the cottage was in a very nice area we were disappointed with its cleanliness and the pots and pans etc as we don’t eat out and need to use what’s provided

    We, the owners, were extreme saddened to read the guests feedback. The cottage has been available to rent for the last 4 years , we live next door, and we have received very good feedback from nearly all those who sent it. We always tell each new arrival of guests that if they have any problems , requests or things they need ,to please speak to us so we can rectify things ( thankfully this rarely happens). The guests chose not to report any of their points to us during their weeks stay but instead chose to contact Sykes cottages on their arrival home. Yes there are some old pans kept at the back of the pan cupboard that are only for use on the BBQ if needed rather than guests using the brand new set of NEFF saucepans that are for kitchen use only. The guests requested financial compensation which we declined to give. Property Owner

  • "Lovely quiet location, my children enjoyed exploring the churchyard, and can walk to Carew Castle which is well worth a visit."

    A lovely pub opposite the castle also in wlakojg distance. Very easy to drove into Temby, and lots of nearby activities for families within a 4 minute drive. kitchen is immaculate and all the essentials available for cooking. Two bedrooms upstairs are well catered for, although the double bed itself is a bit snug, tucked in between 2 cupboards. The hosts are very friendly and helpful and their little dog is sweet and friendly! I would recommend this property to stay if you wish to explore the Tenby area, thanks for a great holiday!

  • "A lovely character cottage in an ideal location to explore this part of Pembrokeshire."

    Very quiet and peaceful village and the neighbours were all very friendly. Maurice and Nicola were very attentive hosts and nothing was too much trouble. Our only minor criticism is that the garden at the front of the cottage was not separate from the owners area so we couldn’t just let the dog out without keeping an eye on him. A small fence and gate would solve this issue. Otherwise perfect

The bustling seaside resort of Tenby, known within Wales as “The Jewel in the Crown", is majestically positioned on the spectacularly beautiful 'Welsh Riviera'. Tenby is part of the stunning 186 mile Pembrokeshire Coast National Park where the water is warmed by the Gulf Stream and the county is one of the sunniest places in the UK. Enclosed by medieval walls, this beautiful town features a maze of cobbled streets, hosting an array of quirky shops, indoor locally-sourced food market, tea rooms and tempting restaurants. Almost three miles of stunning, Blue Flag-awarded beaches provide a variety of watersports, whilst walkers and cyclists can enjoy the local flora and fauna on the coastal paths, something the competitors of the world-renowned Tenby Iron-Man contest (held in mid-September) haven’t time for! A boat trip to Caldey Island is recommended to enjoy the beauty and tranquillity of the monastery and island scenery, and you can enjoy seal and puffin sightings en-route! Explore the magnificent Tudor Merchant's House, or visit the nearby resorts of Saundersfoot or Manobier. For teens and younger visitors, Oakwood Theme Park provides a brilliant, fun-filled day out whilst Folly Farm offers everything from old-fashioned fairground rides to animals both local and exotic!
