  • "The Elms was an amazing base for our holiday that had ample to offer in terms of facilities and space."

    Our holiday got off to a slightly rocky start with storm Eunice hitting on the day we were supposed to be traveling, making that impossible, an also resulting in a loss of power to the entire village where The Elms is located for around 36hrs! However, the hosts kept us notified of the concern with the power, and even provided supplies to help us be more comfortable on our arrival. Despite this, we were able to keep ourselves and the kids entertained with the activities on offer in the games room. And once power had been restored, were able to enjoy a relaxing soak in the hot tub. In terms of location, there are plenty of places to visit within a reasonable car journey, and some nice walks were enjoyed in the local area. The nearby town of Milford Haven had a good selection of restaurants which we enjoyed visiting, and are a short taxi ride if you wish to leave the car behind. I would highly recommend The Elms to anyone looking for a well equipped property which has plenty to offer.

  • "This is a beautiful home, tastefully decorated and furnished with ample off-road parking for 2 cars with a Jacuzzi, sun and games room."

    It has 1.5 baths and 3 bedrooms. My only criticism is with the bathrooms - there was no hand soap available anywhere and no place to place toothbrushes, toothpaste, shampoo or soap; or anything that the ladies in my family needed to use in the bath or shower. Having arrived late in the evening after a 6 hour drive we were unable to wash our with soap and had to use the washing up liquid which the ladies complained of.

    Thank you for your feedback and we are pleased that you liked our home and hope you enjoyed your stay. We removed personal hygiene products and toothbrush holders etc. from the bathroom following advice given in response to the Covid outbreak. We strive to maintain very high standards of cleanliness and our guests safety is our priority. Keeping the bathroom shower etc. free from shelves and holders allows us to ensure high levels of hygiene. Feedback from the vast majority of our guests suggest that whilst Covid is still an issue they prefer not to share such items and as the property is self-catering they arrive with their own toiletries.

    Visited everywhere, travelling from St David's to Tenby, great beaches along the way, with two X 5 mile treks on Caldey Island and Stackpole Quay, bathing in hot tub on return. Would have rated as 5 star but was unavailable for some reason, perhaps missing a swimming pool!

  • "We had a lovely week staying at The Elms."

    Everything we needed was provided. The bungalow was plenty big enough for four adults and two little children. The children loved to play in the garden. The adults loved the hot tub, especially my daughter and her husband. We played pool every night as well, which got us away from the TV for a change. Also it was good that there were two toilets. We would recommend this property.

There is a games room which is not pictured but is a great addition. Location is great for exploring Pembrokeshire. Plenty of parking for 2 cars possibly 3. Would highly recommend.

    From the very moment we arrived we were blown away from the welcome basket with everything we would need for our 1st morning to the games room and hottub we had such a relaxing few days away which was just what was needed. The Elms was in a little quiet village but a great place to explorer the area with lots of recommendations from the owners. The owners Helen and Julien very nice and communicated well with us and responded almost immediately to any queries we texted to them. All in all a 10 out of 10 stay and we can't wait to book the Elms again

    Communication throughout was excellent. The Elms is comfortable, homely and spotlessly clean. A welcome pack of basic essentials and treats was much appreciated. We all enjoyed the hot tub, and the provision of towelling robes was much appreciated. Helen was able to recommend a number of restaurants which offered take away meals. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and look forward to returning sometime in the future.

    Helen and Julian had definitely gone the extra mile to ensure our stay was more than comfortable and were very accommodating and friendly throughout our stay, also leaving us a lovely welcome basket of essentials. The facilities are great and we enjoyed the hot tub (which was checked every morning) and the towelling robes provided were a nice touch. We played pool every evening and also had a read in the cosy summerhouse. The location is great to access many of Pembrokeshire’s lovely beaches and attractions with Sandy Haven a short walk away as well.

    Communication from the owners was absolutely first class which is always welcomed. The Elms is a beautiful bungalow and well equipped with everything we needed and more. I must mention the garden is absolutely beautiful, we really enjoyed the high quality hot tub (it's a top of the range hot tub) and looking around the garden and birds that visited... Sooooo relaxing. The hot tub is located with maximum privacy and right next to the garage/ games room. The games room was a really nice feature, we spent a fair few hours in there.. Sandy Haven beach is about 1 mile away and at low tide it's absolutely beautiful, recommended. Overall this is an excellent place to book as a couple or as a family or friends accommodation. We would definitely return at some point and would like to thank Helen and Julian for sharing their bungalow for others to enjoy.

We arrived very late but walked into the kitchen to see a welcoming card, bread eggs and tea and coffee waiting for us..With a bunch of roses, yes roses.After a horrendous 6 hour journey this really put a huge smile on our faces. There isn't anything that Helen and Julian haven't thought of, a hot tub and a games room which the children loved. Helen and Julian have created a welcome folder which contains information both about the property and what you can find locally which is very helpful. We have been to Pembrokeshire before, the castles, marinas and beaches are a must.. our favourite places are wisemans bridge, Saundersfoot and Tendy (South beach). These are a 30 minute drive away and worth the visit for sure. We can't recommend this property enough, you won't be disappointed it's breathe taking!.
