  • "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.

    The cottages are centrally located with the wonderful Pembrokeshire coast accessible in a 30 to 45 min drive. We can highly recommend Tenby (take pound coins for the car parks) and Saundersfoot. For a fabulous meal we can recommend the Mulberry restaurant in Saundersfoot for a special treat.

  • "Nothing, we had a lovely time, the owners really looked after us well, we had two very elderly relatives with us 90 and 95 years and the owners went out of their way to ensure we had everything we needed to make it comfortable for them."

    They even provided wheelchairs and, because the weather was so bad, offered to let us stay on until the weather cleared at no extra cost. It was a beautiful location in huge grounds with lakes and outdoor covered heated pool, (although it wasn;t open this time of year), but we had a wonderful early morning and late evening walk around the grounds which was both invigorating and calming. A lovely pre spring break, just what was needed.
