"Booked foxglove cottage in Pembrokeshire."
Alarm bells should have rang when the owner said the tumble dryer wasn’t working and blamed the people before us which I found a bit bizarre as they may not have even used it. The tumble dryer was not repaired The outside lighting was poor and the main light not working plus spent an hour trying to get the heating working. The lanes to and from the cottage are an absolute nightmare especially with the biblical weather flooding the roads making them impassable. With storm Cieran coming in we decided to come back on the Wednesday night due to most roads flooded. We informed the owners we were leaving early so they could organise repairs to tumble dryer etc and left the cottage as we found it only to get charged for a mark on a rug which we did not do. In the process of challenging this and so annoyed and Sykes no help at all so don’t rely on them. We are putting it down to being courteous and letting them have more time to inspect the cottage rather than a few hours on a Saturday as we didn’t notice it - we put all the recycle bins out turned the heating off made sure everything was spic and span and left one light on for safety as leaving it unoccupied.They took money without consent or comms and when we challenged this they simply say go to citizens advice. My bank is now taking this on as we treated the property with the highest regard and followed all the rules and so disappointed and spoilt a lovely time. The cottage itself is lovely and garden great but the lanes are a nightmare - 45-50 mins drive to coast and sat nav takes you through the lanes so avoid this stay in main roads as many lanes were flooded and had to do 6 point turns to turn round. I would not recommend this property simply because the owner blamed us for something we did not do with no conversations and took money from my bank account. Be careful with this one and check everything before you settle in as we didn’t even notice a small mark on the rug which we did not do. They believed the dogs marked the rug when we did not let them upstairs - this mark was not done by us and the owners blamed us for something that had already been done Date of experience: 03 November 2023
"Lovely cottage, everything & more was there, great welcome gifts for us."
We couldn’t get the tv to work so phoned owners & they came within a short time & resolved the problem. Lovely break shame about the weather.
"Very nice cottage which was well equipped."
The welcome gifts were much appreciated, thank you. The cottage was a good base to visit lots of lovely places. Our favourite was Stackpole Quay, leading to Barafundle Bay, which was truly lovely. There is a decent co-op in Whitland and a farm shop which has some lovely produce. The only slight downside for us was that the garden wasn't secure enough for our dog but that was more to do with the fact that he's still quite young and not trained as well as he could be. The garden was large though and there was plenty of room to park. All in all a very pleasant holiday.
"We loved everything about Foxglove Cottage,particularly impressed with all the little extras left by the owners."
"The cottage was clean, well equipped and very spacious with a large garden."
The location of the cottage was peaceful and well placed for visiting the popular attractions. However these can only be reached by first driving through some very narrow lanes, most barely more than one car width, which spoiled our experience somewhat. As much as we enjoyed the cottage this would put us off returning.
"Lovely, comfortable stay."
Well thought out and good facilities. Welcome pack was gratefully received. Nice garden and generous parking. Great view and appreciated the new loungers. A lot of effort has been put in to make the property a home from home.
"Well equipped property with enclosed garden making it easy to holiday with your ..."
Well equipped property with enclosed garden making it easy to holiday with your dog , in a good location for exploring Pembrokeshire with plenty of walks and lovely beaches
"Thank you for such a fabulous stay!"
The house was perfect for our family and dogs, and the location and views were second to none
"Very relaxing stay, clean and comfortable."
"A quiet, cosy cottage that was clean, spacious and well-equipped."
The owners provided a great welcome pack too. Weather largely prevented use of outdoor space sadly, but there are lovely views from the back of the property. Would definitely consider staying here again. Possibly the best Sykes property we’ve stayed in and we’ve stayed in quite a few!
"This is the second, but definitely not the last time we will be staying in fox glove cottage."
. we fell in love with the cottage from the pictures and the first visit confirmed the reason why. This is by far the best place we have ever stayed in. The owners are fantastic and they go above and beyond to make everything absolutely perfect. The cottage is close to so many beautiful spots in wales, Saundersfoot, Tenby, Oakwood, folly farm, heatherton and so many more places. But the cottage for us is a place of peace and relaxation, we just unpack sit back eat and relax it really is home from home. There is nothing that’s not there for the perfect stay, they both have thought of every single detail and more. The place is just magical and I mean that, it has a charm and is just so comfortable… this is my favourite cottage by a million miles. If you’re thinking of booking and not sure please take my word for it, it’s worth every single penny, and more.. we can’t wait for the next visit.. thanks for having us and thanks for making not only ours but everyone’s stay just so beautiful and perfect .. xx
"Absolutely brilliant place to stay."
Perfect getaway for the family and dogs. Nice and secluded but close enough to civilisation if you need anything.
"This property was absolutely fantastic, I can’t even begin to explain how amazing it was there."
From the moment we stepped foot into foxglove cottage. We fell in love with it. The cottage was absolutely immaculate. There wasn’t an item out of place. It was one of the cleanest places I have ever had the pleasure of staying in in my entire life. It was absolutely beautiful and it is an absolute credit to Frankie and Matthew, who take so much pride in the place, you can tell how much they love it there. The property literally had everything you needed. We never left the property for the whole week. It was absolutely perfect for cosy days and nights in. There were books available for reading games available for playing TV for the children DVDs colouring books and so much more. The grounds themselves were fantastic for the dogs. It was all secluded and locked in so the dogs could be let off the lead and had the freedom of the whole garden and the view off of the grounds into the valley was absolutely beautiful. We enjoyed several home-cooked meals in the beautiful kitchen of foxgloves. It had everything I needed in order to prepare and dish up amazing food. We were so mesmerised by the property. There were little surprises around every corner. The little touches that Frankie and Matthew had added to the cottage to make sure everybody’s needs are met were just unbelievable. Things I would never even have thought of myself when I’ve been at other properties but Frankie and Mathew had thought of everything for everybody. I don’t think I’ve ever felt so welcome in a property before as soon as we stepped foot in there it felt like home from home. Everything was so clean and crisp. The beds are absolutely spectacularly comfortable. I slept like a baby for the whole seven days… without giving too much away because obviously it’s a joy to be able to go to Foxglove and discover all the little hidden gems that Matthew and Frankie have left there, but my favourite had to be the photo album of the foxglove cottage being renovated, I sat one night, just looking through the pictures and it really felt like they took you on the journey that they went on to make the property as beautiful as it is. I can’t recommend this property enough and we will 100% be returning again whether that be for a few days or a few weeks at a time now I know foxglove cottage is nestled away in Whitland Frankie and Matthew won’t be able to get rid of us. If you’ve seen the property and you’re contemplating booking you won’t be disappointed. Fantastic..
"Everything we could have wished for."
Cosy, comfortable and welcoming. We have already recommended the cottage to others. An ideal location to walk the coast and visit local attractions.
"Everything was spot on, thank you."
The house was impressive and probably the best we have stayed in, certainly in the UK. The home was perfectly located too, nothing was more than 45 minutes away. Tenby was lovely as was Fishguard, Solva, Saundersfoot, Narberth, Newgale, Barafundle bay, Stackpole quay and more. My photos can be found here - https://17-paul-thompson.pixels.com/ Regards Paul And Lesley
"Wow. What a wonderful location for peace and solitude but only 10 minutes from the beach."
Foxglove had everything and more you could want and need during our stay. Very clean and nicely furnished. Thankyou for the wonderful gifts left for us/the children and the doggy by Mathew and frankie. Great secure garden for our dog but, note he was only allowed down stairs, but fully appreciate that other guests staying my not have dogs and not all dog owners allow their fur babies full access to all areas, not an issue for us as it was clearly stated in the details when booking. We will definitely book again.
"Lovely cottage with everything one could want for a wonderful holiday."
Great are for exploring the area
"Absolutely gorgeous cottage."
The owners have literally thought of everything they could include. And fantastic views.
"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!).
"Beautifully furnished everything you need ,cottage is set in a peaceful location with amazing views, stunning beaches a short drive from cottage."
Would recommend staying here if you want peace and quiet, will definitely return .
"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.
"Lovely place beautiful views everything provided felt really spoilt even fresh flowers and goodies ."
"Wonderful cottage with lovely hosts."
Very relaxing holiday with everything you need supplied including lots of little extras - chocolate, wine , Welsh cakes and fresh flowers . We really enjoyed staying here - garden and kennels brilliant too for the doggies. Thank you to Our lovely hosts for being so kind and helpful when we lost our car keys in the last day ( not a good day)! Highly recommended!!!!!
"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.
"Even though we didnt meet our hosts they were easy to contact and talk to on text and welcomed us when we arrived and checked in with us part way through our stay and were happy to answer any questions we had - we felt like we knew them quite well by the time we left, which was nice and made the whole experience a lot more personal."
"Foxglove cottage is a very cosy and well equipped cottage, everything you need to make your stay perfect, even down to the dog treats and towel!"
Frankie and Matthew were excellent hosts and were always available to help or advise. The location is central and the cottage has beautiful views from the garden.
