  • "Lovely property with everything needed for our holiday, great space to exercise the dog, great for walkers & water sports, lanes a bit tight but that’s like a lot of Wales, close to several towns for shopping & sightseeing, it was a nice relaxing week."

    Thank you for your comments however due to your stay we have now had no option but to include a good housekeeping bond. We love dogs but leaving a recently rescued animal alone in the property to cause damage is not fair to him or ourselves. Please think about the stress caused to an already damaged animal as well as the impact on our livelihood if considering future bookings Property Owner

  • "We really enjoyed our stay at the Old Mill."

    The owner was there to welcome us on our arrival and the property was spotless, comfortable and well equipped with everything we needed. Our dog was also warmly welcomed. We are happy to recommend.

    Thank you for taking the time to review, it’s always nice to hear feedback and appreciate your kind comments Property Owner

  • "The hosts were very hospitable and welcoming."

    The house was plenty big enough for 5 adults, a child and a dog. Lovely walks to the estuary to skim stones (a lovely touch, a stash of skimming stones too) The bedrooms are spacious and the beds are comfy. The daybed is not functional for a little one, we made do and made a bed up which she loved. Value for money and we had a great week.

    Thank you for your comments, it was a pleasure having you here. I will have the day bed mattress replaced to hopefully improve the comfort Property Owner

  • "This is a lovely house, very dark in the kitchen/dining room so had to use power."

    Mismatch of pans to use and most with no lids. Misleading with the 4.5 acres as actually we could only walk in a small part of this land and after a grass area it was quite overgrown. Also wasn't expecting to be attached to owners own house and them having a Woodburn going each night which entailed us not to be able to have windows open because the smell just drifted into the lounge and also the master bedroom. Owners were very pleasant and the welcome Welsh Cakes were a nice touch.

    Thank you for your comments, it is always beneficial to receive feedback. With regard to the kitchen being dark, the stone walls are 3ft deep & not possible to cut additional windows into the building. All pots & pans have lids, full set plus additional equipment. Most people find it beneficial having help at hand if required plus guests have private garden but our BBQ has since been moved (we are in a valley so smoke can linger on occasions) Most of our land is banked but will check & cut paths Property Owner

  • "We recently had the pleasure of staying at this property in Pembrokeshire, and I must say, it was an absolute delight."

    From the moment we arrived, we were greeted by a beautiful and comfortable home that set the stage for a truly memorable getaway. One of the standout aspects of our stay was the incredible hospitality of the owners. They not only provided us with a warm welcome but also proved to be an invaluable source of local knowledge. Their willingness to share their insights and experiences about the area added an extra layer of depth to our vacation. It's always a bonus to have hosts who genuinely care about making your stay special. The property's location was another highlight. Just a few minutes' walk from the doorstep is a pretty stony beach where we enjoyed beach-combing sessions and walks with our dog. It was a peaceful and serene spot that allowed us to connect with nature and unwind. However, what truly amazed us was the abundance of quiet, pristine sandy beaches within a short 30 to 45-minute drive. Pembrokeshire boasts some of the most breathtaking coastlines in the UK, and we had the privilege of exploring many of them. Each beach had its own unique charm, and the convenience of having them within reach made our holiday even more enjoyable. In the end, our time in Pembrokeshire felt like a true escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. We wholeheartedly recommend this holiday property to anyone looking to recharge, reconnect with nature, and create lasting memories in this picturesque corner of the world.

    Thank you so much, we are always delighted when we have guests stay that fully appreciate the incredible place we live … even if the weather isn’t always perfect Property Owner

  • "A lovely place to stay."

    Owners can't do enough to make your stay enjoyable. Home baked Welsh cakes on arrival and departure. We found that we had relatives holidaying nearby and these we also made welcome when we met up at nearby pub for a meal. Ferry House Inn a couple of minutes walk and we'll worth a visit for a meal. Only downside would be the stairs could be a problem with some people but we found them good practice for Coast Path walks.

    Thanks for your lovely comments, we're glad you enjoyed the Welsh cakes! The accommodation is spread over 4 floors so we understand the stairs may be difficult for some people. Property Owner

  • "We loved our stay at The Old Mill."

    Rhian couldn't have been more helpful. We loved the secret garden. And the woodland area was an unexpected bonus. We and our children spent many happy hours there. We hadn't realised just how close we were to the sea, just a few yards down the road. The accommodation itself was very well equipped, the only thing we could have done with were some smaller kitchen knives. Other than that we had everything we needed for a perfect stay. The Ferry House Inn just by the sea was a lovely place for a meal to end our week.

    Thanks for leaving such a nice review,it's so good to hear you enjoyed your stay at The Old Mill, and that you had a few pleasant surprises! It would be nice to welcome you back some time in the future. Property Owner

    Such a beautiful building with every convenience you could hope for in a peaceful woodland that feels like you are miles from anywhere. Rhian is the perfect hostess...very warm and welcoming, and makes Welsh cakes to die for! She is full of local knowledge and advice on places to visit...Bosherston Lilly Ponds is a must!!. Good food and drink on the doorstep at The Ferry Inn with stunning views of the estuary and Pembroke Dock....while away an hour or too watching the Irish ferry come and go. We will definitely be back!

    Owners were very friendly and couldn’t be more helpful. Great base to explore Pembrokeshire from. We would ideally have liked more comfy (less slidy) sofas with some throws to cosy up under, but that’s being very picky indeed - the furnishing was to a high standard throughout. Many thanks from the Allen family :)

    Rhian is a perfect hostess and guide and made us feel very welcome right from the start! Excellent welsh cakes too on arrival! :) We wanted peace and quite away from it all for our break and that is certainly what we got, but it is in a perfect location for visiting other great tourist spots like Tenby, Pembroke, St. Davids etc. and some great walks too if you like to wander. There is a lovely pub serving delicious food on the doorstep (The Ferry Inn) as well as a couple of other great places to eat in Neyland Marina just a 30 to 40 min walk away. The local Co Op has everything you could need, and a few other shops and takeaways are dotted up and down Neyland High Street. Toast marshmallows on an open fire in the garden, or sit and while away the hours watching the many boats and Irish Ferry sailing in and out of Pembroke dock as you enjoy a pint or two down at the waters edge! Loved every minute of our stay, and we WILL be back :)

    It was spacious, with great facilities and nice comfortable beds - the fresh Welsh cakes were a lovely welcome when we arrived too. We were so impressed with the amazing pembrokeshire beaches we visited (all dog friendly) and St David’s was an easy 40 minute drive away too. Rhian had a lot of good recommendations, a great local guide if you need ideas - thank you for the PointzCastle ice-cream suggestion after our day out at Newgale beach - it’s quite possibly the best gelato ice-cream we’ve ever had!

  • "I stayed with my husband, 9 year old son and dog during the August school holiday."

    We booked the cottage as we were enticed by the quirkynes of it being over 4 floors and it did not disappoint. The cottage was very homely and had everything we needed. The beds were lovely and comfortable as was the sofa in the beautiful cosy lounge. We happened to time our stay during a heat wave but being a old stone building the property didn't get too hot and stuffy. I imagine it would be equally nice for a winter break. The location was fabulous as it was very central to all the places we wanted to visit and a world a way from all the hussle and bustle of the nearby busy resorts. There was even a little pub a couple of minutes walk away with a bear garden over looking the harbour. The owners were very welcoming and helpful without being the least bit intrusive and even managed to stay jovial when our whippet tried to chase their cat! On arrival owner Rhian had made us some delicious Welsh cakes and also gave my son some mellows to toast when she saw us using the fire pit in the garden. Pembrokeshire is a beautiful plàce with spectacular beaches and scenery. My son Max said it was his best holiday ever!
