  • "Three generations all had a wonderful time and Dolwern."

    The cottage has been wonderfully renovated and features all the things you could wish for a comfortable stay. The huge garden was a big hit with the kids with great spaces for scooting, football, cricket and then the end of the garden for exploring and firepit. Location was wonderful, nearest town lovely Newport was around 3 miles away which was great for eating. The two beaches within walking distance were perfect for our 2 young boys for exploring rock pools and jumping waves. We had a brilliant holiday and will certainly be returning in the future.

  • "We have not long come back from enjoying a holiday here."

    I am writing this review (my first ever) in a bit of a hurry because I want to look at dates when we can go again. Yes. It's that good. I absolutely fell in love with the place. In my opinion, 'Dolly' has everything you could possibly dream of. If you think it sounds amazing when you read the description. Well, It's even better. The hosts are so incredibly thoughtful you actually feel like your part of the family! If you want to stay in a home that offers so much in a fabulous location, with so much to explore right on the doorstep, where the locals are the friendliest I've ever met book right now and if it's fully booked this year try the next. You really, really won't be disappointed. Thank you so much Rich and Leigh x

    Rick kept us updated and once we lit some candles and the fire we we’re cozy in the cottage. During the week we explored the area and visited some lovely beaches. Dolwern is well equipped and comfortable, we could not ask for more for a relaxing week away.

  • "Dolwern, or 'Dolly' was a delight!"

    Exceeded expectations. The accommodation is light and spacious, superb large family space opening out onto the private outdoor area, great to see the blustery winter weather while so toasty warm inside. We enjoyed dips in the sea, only a short stroll along the path accessed through the rear of the garden, returning to lovely hot showers, so many bathrooms! The front lounge offered a quiet space for anyone needing to take calls or work. The kitchen ticked all boxes and the whole house was superbly well equipped. A gem of a find, beautiful house, great location in any season.

  • "“Dolly” is a beautiful, spacious and very clean home to spend the week."

    It has a lovely mix of being a character property, but with all the modern features like Alexa and boiling water tap. It had everything we needed for a comfortable stay. It was lovely having the gate out the back for walks down to the beaches. The children were very pleased to find a little selection of books and toys to play with during the stay, and the garden was great for a run around. However a cot or travel cot would have been very useful. We all had a lovely time and would be very happy to visit again.
