  • "This is a wonderful property that’s very tastefully decorated and very clean in an amazing quiet location close to fabulous coastal walks."

    The house has everything you need and is extremely comfortable, homely and very relaxing. It’s hard to find any major fault but the only thing missing for us was a tumble dryer as very difficult to get clothes and towels dried after washing other than hanging on a clothes frame but took ages to dry.That said we will defo return again later in the year if we have time as it was a great stay.

  • "Charming cottage ,spotless on arrival."

    Set in beautiful countryside ,stones throw from coastal path. If you are looking for a relaxing break 'to get away from it all' this is the perfect place. Loved every minute and would definitely rebook.

  • "No ice cubes in the freezer on arrival, only 1 nights fire wood."

    Directions to the cottage a little misunderstanding.

    Although no issues occurred.

  • "A beautiful cottage, very well equipped and very cosy."

    Some amazing views, sunrise through the kitchen window with a coffee in hand being my favourite. The cottage was very clean and tidy, and warm and quiet too. Great walks nearby, with inland and coastal walks available and some wonderful places to visit only a short car ride away. We have booked again for next year, too good to not come back.

  • "This is our 2nd visit to this cottage."

    .. we love staying here... its a lovely place to stay... very comfortable, warm, great kitchen, good WiFi and very quiet. Also only 2 mins from the coast path... what's not to like? Look forward to our visit next year.

  • "A very cosy, clean and well appointed cottage in a beautiful spot."

    the only drawback was insufficient lighting to read by. The lighting created a pleasant atmosphere for sitting chatting or watching tv but reading was a challenge - all 4 of us found this. the provision of a stainless steel lamp allowed one person to read but that still left 3 struggling. Maybe another 1 or 2 standard lamps would help. We would return, nevertheless, as we loved the cottage and its location.

  • "Lovely property, well located, clean and well furnished."

    It felt like there was a lack of personal touch - e.g there were lists of restaurants, pubs etc but no details about them or recommendations. It was nice to have the option of a fire with logs provided but there were no tools to use with the fire pit (tongs, poker, brush etc)

  • "Just a lovely cottage, quiet, comfy and kept very clean."

    .. excellent location with great coast-cliff views only a few yards away and ready for stepping out the door and exploring the Pembrokeshire coastal paths in the Strumble Head area.

  • "This is a great cottage."

    ..very comfortable, beautifully warm, and in amazing location just 2 minutes walk from the coast path. The kitchen is really well equipped, and the beds very comfy. This has to be one of the nicest cottages we've stayed in and have already rebooked for next year!

  • "We had a wonderful week in Gwndwn Gwyn."

    It is a lovely cottage with everything you need for a relaxing holiday, and more. It is situated in a great location for accessing the coastal path or just chilling out in the summerhouse with a cuppa listening to the cows. As usual, everything was spotlessly clean and very warm and welcoming after a windy day on the cliff tops. We hope to be back soon.

    As a busy working mum, I need a holiday as well and not to be forever washing up or putting the dishwasher on if there is only limited plates etc. I.e. 4people 4plates. This holiday cottage gave me that break. Thank you.

    I would like to keep it a secret so we can visit ASAP. If you love remoteness, quietness and access to cliff walks and inland paths it is the place for you. Many thanks to the owners, caretakers and Sykes and can’t wait to return to a little taste of Heaven on Earth.

  • "This cottage is beautifully furnished and decorated with so many personal touches provided for guests to enjoy, including photographs and artwork of the area, and gorgeous handmade and hand knitted throws and patchwork quilts to snuggle under during our windy winter visit."

    We arrived during Storm Dennis, but were cosy and warm throughout our stay. The location is outstanding with a one minute walk until you are on the Pembrokeshire Coastal Path, with staggeringly beautiful views from the doorstep. There are many walks straight from the cottage, meaning that you only have to use the car for shopping, if needed. We would love to visit again, and indeed the visitors’ book is full of people’s comments who have visited multiple times in the past; we could see why. Our only criticism was that the complimentary basket of logs was not provided as detailed in the listing; that said, our expectations were exceeded in every other area and the cottage was superbly equipped, making it a complete ‘home from home’. A truly wonderful cottage - thank you.

About the location


Fishguard 2 miles; Newport 9 miles; St. Davids 15 miles.

Goodwick is a picturesque coastal village overlooking the bay where the twice daily ferries run to Ireland. With a variety of shops, cafes, pubs and a small supermarket, it offers everything you need. The twin town of Fishguard is only two miles away, where you will find more unique shops, a delicatessen, pubs, restaurants and the Last Invasion Tapestry, which is based on the famous Welsh ladies' victory over the French and has been compared to the Bayeux Tapestry. Located in such a great coastal position, the Pembrokeshire and Cardiganshire section of the world-famous Welsh coastal path is right on your doorstep, so enjoy the scenic walks, outstandingly beautiful beaches, the opportunity to watch dolphins and seals and so much more! From lazy, warm summer days to wild and windy winter days, the scenery is ever-changing and always remarkable. Historic castles, theme parks, art galleries, kayaking, coasteering and boat trips to the islands are all nearby and St. Davids, the smallest city in the UK, with its magnificent cathedral is a short drive away, while the coastal town of Newport, with its fantastic beach, is closer still. A perfect location all year round.
