  • "We had a wonderful stay in Puffin Cottage."

    The owners were very friendly and helpful - and we loved the guide book - it was so detailed and full of recommendations of things to do in the area. The pool is fantastic and no one else was using it during our stay so we pretty much had it to ourselves! The beds and the sofas weren't the comfiest but not unbearable. Our favourite part of the cottage was the patio - the view was spectacular and we loved sitting outside to watch the sunset every night. The place is great value for money and we would definitely return!

    Thank you for your kind comments Laura, we are really happy to hear you had a wonderful stay and that you found the guidebook helpful. We hope to welcome you back again soon. Property Owner

    A genuinely ten out of ten place with nothing I can think of that would have made it better. A really peaceful, beautiful place with a lovely atmosphere.

    Thank you Andrew for your kind feedback. We are really happy to hear you had a fantastic week and enjoyed your stay in Puffin cottage. We hope to welcome you back again in the future. Property Owner

    The cottage and its owners were fantastic and far exceeded all our expectations. Brilliant holiday

  • "The location was beautiful and the pool was terrific for both us and the grandchildren."

    Downside for us was the unattended roaming of dogs. One instance a spaniel puppy invaded our cottage running over the furnature and frightening my wife and grandchildren. Second, while having a drink and enjoying the lovely view at the rear, a large labrador appeared on the lawn and depositted a large pile of poo!! Because we had 2 boys playing on the lawn and our next door neighbours had children we were obliged to remove the offending left behind ourselves, although we had no dogs of our own. Not a nice thing to have to do on our holiday.

    We are sorry that you were troubled by wayward dogs. We do ask guests to be responsible dog owners but if there has been an issue, we live on site and will do our best to resolve it straight away if you tell us. We want all our guests to have a great holiday Property Owner

    Felt incredibly safe with Covid safety precautions. Beautiful spot which allowed us to explore all of Pembrokeshire and it's stunning scenery. Would really recommend, a great place to stay.

  • "We were a little anxious about cleanliness, due to the COVID pandemic, but as soon as we arrived, felt completely at ease."

    The family live on site and are only too pleased to help. The cottage was very clean, well equipped and comfortable, although we took our own pillows (our choice). We loved the heated pool, which you book through the owner, to use individually as a cottage. My grand daughter loved the play area too. A bonus for us was watching the stars as no light pollution. The cottage is one of four converted for rent and set in beautiful countryside but you do have to drive at least half an hour to go anywhere. We enjoyed visiting some beautiful beaches, castles and towns. We had a fantastic week and take home some lovely memories. Thank you.
