  • "The cottage was wonderful as was the setting such amazing views."

    So peaceful and quiet. The cottage was equipped with everything we needed the owners had thought of everything even games and films for rainy days. There are beautiful beaches within 20 minutes drive and lots of lovely places to eat out that were equally close by no pubs in walking distance though. Please check times for serving food though as most places we found has set times to serve food. The small co op store in Whitland has everything we needed the nearest M&S and Morrisons were about half an hour away in Carmarthen. The vineyard opposite the cottage is well worth a visit Andy is really helpful with wine information. When we booked we thought we were going to a completely dog friendly cottage but when we arrived with our 2 dogs we were surprised at the restrictions that had not been listed. We allow our dogs upstairs although this is not everyones choice it is ours and our options were keeping them downstairs or in the large well built kennel if we weren’t downstairs with them. However we shared this feedback with the owners yesterday and have noted a change to the details about the cottage today so brilliant speedy response noted. Would recommend the cottage if you have no dogs or don’t allow them upstairs sadly this will stop us rebooking but that’s the only reason would love to return to foxglove cottage otherwise. Big thank you for the lovely wine flowers and chocolates and for the doggy treats. The Turners

  • "There were issues regarding the television at the start of the holiday."

    Fantastic views from the house. Hubby would have liked a pub a bit nearer.

    We're glad you enjoyed your stay. Thankfully the problem with the TV was sorted out almost immediately once the TV channel was put on HDMI. A pub closer by would be great, luckily we have a stunning pembrokeshire vineyard as our next-door neighbours ❤️ Property Owner

  • "Lovely stay, at a clean well maintained and beautiful cottage."

    Equipped with just about everything you could wish for. The owners have gone above and beyond to accommodate their guests needs and the extra touches like welcome gifts for both humans and dogs is a lovely thought. Would definitely book again for a future stay in Pembrokeshire.

  • "Our second visit to Foxglove this year."

    It is the perfect cottage for a break in a lovely part of South Wales. The cottage is very well equipped and comfortable with some great views of the local countryside. We explored some new beaches and towns and villages this time and there are many more that we didn’t have time for in our week that we would like to visit. Ashley our cocker spaniel puppy loved his holiday and appreciated the doggy biscuits that had been left for him. Great to be able to keep in touch with the owners by text.

  • "A fantastic cottage."

    Much more spacious than I expected from photos. Lots of lovely touches (and gifts!) to make it feel a real home from home. Stunning views from the back garden and close proximity to many Pembrokeshire pleasures, not least the stunning (dog friendly) beaches. A great place for families and those with dogs (and both!).

  • "The cottage was perfect and had everything that we needed."

    The owners kept in touch by text and it was great to know that we could easily contact them if we needed to. The cottage is in a lovely setting and we felt at home there as soon as we arrived. we had some great winter walks along the beach with Ashley our puppy and some relaxing evenings in the cottage. We loved it so much we have already booked to go back in April.

  • "What a fantastic place."

    We booked this last minute (same day as arrival) for New Year and the hosts couldn’t have been anymore accommodating to ensure the property was ready for our arrival only 5 hours later! The cottage is amazing and spotlessly clean with everything you could ever need for a relaxing stay and the nice gifts left by the host on arrival ensures the your stay gets off to the best possible start. All the rooms are spacious and the garden is huge with sweeping views across the countryside, ideal for walks or a short drive (15min) to the lovely golden beaches of South Wales. We never normally go back to the same place twice but are already looking to rebook here later in the year.

  • "I would highly recommend Foxglove Cottage."

    This is probably the best holiday let we have stayed in and we have stayed in many. The owners Matthew and Frankie have thought of everything and do not leave the dogs out. The cottage is so homely and I have already recommended it to friends. We had texts from Matthew and Frankie to check everything was ok and the welcome gifts were so lovely, again not forgetting the dog. We will definitely visit again.

  • "This is probably one of the nicest, most well-equipped and comfortable holiday rental we have used (and we go on holiday a lot!"

    ) The house was immaculate, had everything we needed and the little extra treats for us as parents (wine, milk and Welsh cakes ), our boys (lollies and choc) and the dogs (treats and a tennis ball) were very well received and appreciated. As owners of 2 dogs, we are often given the old, tired lodge, or allowed to rent a house with lower standards. It was a refreshing change to have such a beautiful property and have our furry companions with us. There is loads to do in the local area; this was probably one of the best holidays we’ve had in the UK and we would definitely recommend it. Matthew and Frankie did an amazing job as holiday hosts and we’d love to visit again.

  • "If you want a beautiful tranquil cottage with stunning views then this is the one for you!"

    It’s light, airy and spacious enough for a family of 5. It’s set in a small cluster of 4 or 5 houses about 2 miles from Whitland. It is a great base in which to explore this amazing area of Wales. The kitchen has a washer, drier, dishwasher, large fridge freezer and even an Alexa. We had wine, milk, chocolates and biscuits left by the owners. The lounge is large with ample sofas, a few games and lovely homely touches. The bonus of this house is a downstairs toilet too! There is also a large garden, outdoor seating areas and twinkly lights at night. Upstairs there are 2 beautiful bedrooms, with ample storage, hairdrier and even a range of spare toiletries (with an honesty box). The owners really have thought of everything! We spent our days exploring the beaches and found Foxglove cottage to be a fantastic base! And an added bonus - the owners were on hand to answer questions and recommend activities. We had a fabulous week, would highly recommend the cottage and would love to come back.

  • "This was the best equipped cottage we’ve ever stayed in."

    We wanted for nothing on our two week stay and could have easily moved in forever! It was really spacious and comfortable with lots of personal touches from the owner ie. Milk in the fridge and wine on the table. It’s quiet and rural but really well placed to explore Pembrokeshire. The owners really have done a great job of making an exceptional holiday home.
