  • "Another great holiday at this lovely property."

    The welcome goodies were much appreciated and the pumpkins and carving kits for the children was a really thoughtful touch, they loved doing them. Would highly recommend this property.

  • "Swallow cottage is ideal."

    It's warm a great base, there were seven of us and it was very spacious. Would definitely go back although probably when pool is open later in year when a little sunnier for kids to swim. No complaints at all with our stay. All being on one floor was great for the father-in-law who has limited mobility.

    Had everything we needed for a family including a child and a dog. Also nice to have the hot powerful showers after walking in the rain. Having multiple TVs also meant both adults and child were happy watching separate programmes. Loved how remote and peaceful it was.

    The grounds are beautiful with plenty of walks for the dog, having the pool there is a big bonus the children were in their element. The owners are great and make you feel very welcome, the card and flowers for mom's birthday were a lovely touch. All in all a brilliant week at this property.

  • "The property was situated in a beautiful estate, off the beaten track and completed secluded (apart from the other properties in the group)."

    Very clean, well equipped and comfortable. Kitchen well equipped, although could do with more small plates and bowls. The grounds were beautiful, well maintained and with a lovely covered swimming pool (which was used nearly every day). There is a lovely walk down to the lake, which has benches and is very well stocked with fish. All in all, a fabulous place to explore South Wales

    Thank you for your kind comments. We are happy to hear you enjoyed your stay here. Thank you for letting us know about the small plates and bowls we have added more to the cottage. We hope to welcome you back in the future. Property Owner

  • "A hidden gem, located in the most beautiful grounds."

    Ideal for families with a lovely swimming pool, often we were the only ones in there. Lovely walks for dogs up towards fishing lake. Fishing available for small cost. The owners are super friendly and so accommodating. A lovely little play area for children, an outside hut with games and a pool table. Our cottage had a bbq and enclosed small outside space. We've been 3 times and would highly recommend (although not to too many, they would have no availability else). We will return, possibly even as a bigger party, renting more cottages. Drive is around 40 mins to Tenby where we would often venture for a beach day. The only thing that let us down was the weather but otherwise totally faultless. The owner even let our tractor mad little one sit in his tractor. Great people, great place.

  • "The accommodation was very comfortable and made it very easy to have a good relaxing holiday."

    The swimming pool was better than expected and made a great addition to the house. We even managed to get a bit of fishing in on the lake. A few good fish were caught (and carefully released), which added to the overall experience. The fact that we were able to take our dogs was a huge bonus and what with the large wooded area suitable for walking them, this all added up to a really great holiday. The owners made every effort to ensure we had a good time and were the perfect hosts. A big thank you to Rob and Chris.

A lovely pre spring break, just what was needed.
