  • "We had a lovely relaxing stay at Willow cottage and it was a great base to explore the Pembrokeshire area."

    Natalie and her team were very friendly and if we had any problems we just needed to call them. The cottage had excellent facilities and was close by to lots of different eating places and things to do.

  • "As noted in the visitors' book, we had a wonderful stay, so thank you."

    The beds are the most comfortable we've ever had on any holiday, and we've been on a few! Our little boy loved it. Only points to flag to the owner are: new lightbulb is needed in fridge; and the grill pan in the oven doesn't seem to like being on any shelf apart from the bottom, as it kept falling down on one side (maybe it's just me!).

    This was our second stay at Willow Cottage in the last 12 months and as on our previous stay, it was superb! Our two children aged 11 and 9 specifically requested we returned and we had a lovely week exploring the coastline and local area in Summer. The lodge is so beautifully presented and equipped - you will wish for nothing! Natalie and her family are excellent hosts and could not have been more helpful! A gem of a find with super comfy beds ....we will definitely be back!

    The accommodation was more than we expected. Lovely space both inside and out, also quiet and private. The lodge was really well equipped with lovely comfy beds and seating and the log burner was an added bonus for cosy evenings in. Having the outside utility room for our suitcases, the washing machine, vacuum cleaner, recycling boxes, etc was a really lovely thought. Also we have an electric car and almost directly opposite the entrance to Grandiflora were 4 double charging stations which were substantially cheaper than others we came across in town car parks. Would definitely recommend.
