    Great location for exploring Pembrokeshire and the cottage was exactly as advertised. Comfy bed and excellent cleanliness throughout, which are so important when staying in a rental property.

    Parking is a bit tight (so don't take a big car!), but it's off-road and sheltered. A little noisy with traffic, but the bonus is that everything is within easy walking distance and you can see the castle and the water from the lounge window. Hosts mades sure everything ran smoothly and I appreciated having a mobile number for any issues (there weren't any). We had a great week away.

  • "We had a wonderful stay at Cornstore Cottage, it is a very clean, well maintained and modern property that the owners have clearly taken great efforts to decorate and furnish to a high standard for a very comfortable stay."

    Its in a great location to walk around the millpond to pubs, shops and cafe's of Pembroke, but also to explore the beautiful scenery of the Pembrokeshire National Park (we loved Bosherton, The Green Bridge, St Govans, Barafundle Bay and Stackpole Quay, plus day trips to St Davids, Colby Gardens and Tenby. We especially liked being able to walk to the Cornstore Cafe for breakfast and afternoon tea, had takeaways from the chinese and fish & chip shops nearby. We hope to stay in this lovely property again.

  • "Cornstore Cottage is a very comfortable and beautifully furnished property with a lovely view of Pembroke castle."

    It has a well equipped modern kitchen and is a very short walk to local shops etc. The covered car park to the rear of the property has a designated spot which should be fine for all but the largest vehicles. For those interested in history Pembroke castle is well worth a visit. The Cornstore Cafe literally a stones throw away is a cosy place for coffee and cake and light lunches and on a sunny day it’s tables by the river are a super place to relax. Pembroke itself was small but has everything you may need and the larger supermarkets are a few minutes by car. The nearby beaches are absolutely stunning and not to be missed and for those interested in wildlife a trip to Skomer Island is a memorable experience. The owners Ben and Sarah kept us well informed of changeover details etc and were super hosts.

  • "We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Castle view."

    Everything worked well, from the initial contact with Ben and Sarah, the much appreciated welcome pack, and the text as we left to check that everything was ok. The apartment was clean, cosy, comfortable and well equipped. The secondary double glazing kept the place warm and stopped most of the traffic noise from the nearby busy road. Parking in the allocated space was a little tight, but other than that everything was perfect for us.

    Owners provided a welcome pack (I am now addicted to Welsh Cakes!!), lots of local information and were easily contacted if needed. Ideally located for exploring Pembroke and the wider area, St David’s, Tenby, Saundersfoot and beautiful beaches. We can thoroughly recommend Castle View.

  • "Comfortable, well-equipped and nicely decorated terraced apartment very close to Mill Pond, the Castle and the centre of Pembroke."

    Large wall mounted TV with range of services. The NISA mini-supermarket three minutes up the road is well-stocked and has a good fish and chip shop. Close to bus stops and 15 minutes’ walk torailway station. The little Coastal Cruiser buses and the stopping train to Swansea give access to various points on the Coastal Path, so that you can start at one point and get the bus back from another. Car not required. Some great walks - Saundersfoot to Tenby (railway stations), Freshwater West to Angle (buses), and Bosherton to Stackpole Quay (buses) coastal walks are great. The Bosherton Lily ponds can be included in the walk to Stackpole. We enjoyed the Pembroke Castle guided tour.

    It was in a good position in Pembroke but a little dissopointed with the veiw. We found it to be a very warm cottage and had to keep the windows open at all times. I have an mobility issue but found the over the shower bath very good with the help of a suction handle which I take away with me. (Perhaps provide one) A couple of good pubs in walking distance, and the church on the high street for coffee the ladies are lovely and full of local knowledge and the history of Pembroke . The owner where very helpful have one of the best information folder for a cottage we have ever been in. We would return .

  • "A wonderful stay here in August 2022, beautifully luxuriously decorated, modern and spotlessly clean, Ben and Sarah obviously like to go that little bit further to make your stay extra special."

    They provided milk, tea, coffee, (for the tassimo machine !) which made my day, as I love this and never expected that. Shortbread and welsh cakes which both of my children love. Also basic Cleaning stuff too. A really nice touch. My children 10 and 13 loved the brand new game provided by Ben and Sarah - Monolopy for Sore Losers, again a nice touch. The property has everything you need if you wanted to cook here, or there are plenty of takeaways and pubs for great food. This is a beautiful property, with its own parking under cover. Ben contacted me direct to ask if we needed anything on arrival and let him know we had arrived safely. A fantastic place to explore beautiful Pembrokeshire. First time we have been here and we will be back. Thank you Ben and Sarah.

  • "We have just returned from a lovely week at Castle View."

    We enjoyed visiting the stunning beaches in this area, including Tenby, Freshwater West and Pendine Sands, the castles in Pembroke and Manorbier, and St David's Cathedral. I have not been to Pembrokeshire before - I was inspired to come after watching Michael Portillo's Great Coastal Railway Journeys, and it was well worth it. Castle View is a modern apartment, with, as its name suggests, a view of the castle from the lounge window. The apartment is set up with good quality furnishings and lots of kitchen equipment, clean and nicely decorated, good wifi and a booklet with information for guests. The only slight drawbacks are that the flat is just off the main road through the town, so there is some traffic noise when the windows are open, but it was quiet at night, and the parking space is on the narrow side. But these are only minor niggles and we would be very happy to stay here again. Ben the host was very helpful when I had to text him over a minor issue (couldn't find the mains switch for the washing machine) and when we left my daughter's toy behind, he posted it to us the same day. Thank you, Ben and Sarah, for a lovely week.

  • "Apartment was spotless."

    Owner was easy to get hold of and helpful. He also facilated early access to apartment for us. The treats upon arrival was a lovely touch and appreciated. Apartment is in a good location. Hard to sleep at night in hot weather if u leave windows open as early morning traffic very noisy. The kickboard in the kitchen kept falling down on our feet so we left it down. We had great difficulty removing the plug from the bath to release water after a shower. We gave feed back to owner.

    We ask all guests to contact us if they experience any issue, as being local we can often address most things the same day. However we didn’t receive any feedback in respect of these issues prior to now, the bath plug is fully working and is remotely operated via twisting the bath overflow and we will look at the plinth. The flat is in central town which is a bit noisier but it’s double glazed with secondary glazing to ensure that despite this it’s a peaceful place to stay, although with windows open you would hear some traffic.

    It was modern, spotlessly clean, newly-refurbished, with all amenities in good working order. It was not easy to locate, e.g. the car park space was in the cul-de-sac below, with the numbering in random order, which was not the owners' fault. They were easily contactable by telephone and text, and we're very polite and friendly. A welcome pack of tea, milk, Welsh cakes and biscuits were provided, which was appreciated.

    The pre-arrival instructions were very clear and detailed, and on arrival the property was immaculate, clean and well equipped. The car parking space was essential and although a bit tight (next to a column) our Astra fitted fine. It's proximity to pubs and eateries was a huge bonus, and we had two excellent meals at the closest place, The Watermans Arms.

    We are pleased you enjoyed your stay and appreciate your comments, The car park space is a standard size single and our Volvo V90 Estate just fits, but anything wider than that might struggle. There is a large public car park in Pembroke which costs £25 for a week if anybody has a very large car / camper or wishes to bring a second car on holiday with them. Property Owner

    It was clean, comfortable and well stocked (nothing more annoying than staying in a self catering cottage that only supplies 1 toilet roll and no washing up liquid). Be aware if you have a large car that the allocated parking space might be a bit tight. Highly recommend eating at The Waterman’s Arms (just across the road) and ordering takeaway from Rowlie’s Fish & Chips and Peppe’s Pizza (warning, the portions are huge!). A trip to Barafundle Bay is a must (approx 15 min drive) but be sure to get there early to secure a place in the car park, rarely any spaces left after 10am!

Just outside Pembroke is a range of incredible beaches including the famous Barafundle Bay or for Harry Potter fans a chance to visit ‘Dobbie’s Grave’ on Freshwater West, or to walk around the Bosherton Millponds or to follow in King Charles recent footsteps with a visit to the iconic St Govan’s Chapel.
