  • "We had a fantastic stay at the cottage and really enjoyed our holiday."

    Everything in the cottage was as described and the owners were very responsive.

  • "Excellent cosy cottage."

    Beds were extremely comfortable and warm. Plenty of space inside and out, the children loved the garden. Kitchen had everything that we needed. Pleasantly surprised by the smart TV with Netflix account. We had bought a small TV from home (children would not cope without their Netflix), perhaps the details could be updated to reflect this. My only small criticism, would have been nice to have bath mat towels for the bathrooms - the onsuite floor is particularly cold. Definitely would visit again and recommend to friends. Thank you for our enjoyable break.

  • "I was fortunate enough to meet a member of the team who look after the two lodges on the site."

    I was able to tell him about the things we found that were not quite 100%. I feel this is a good way to feedback and give the owners the opportunity to make improvements, which were not many. This is the second holiday my family has had at the Lodge and we hope to return again in the future.

  • "Nice location, plenty hot water, nice outdoor space."

    However as in the past with Sykes, the cottage was not very clean! Lots of cobwebs everywhere, oven trays dirty etc. We could not tell that extra cleaning had been carried out due to covid! The living area smelled very damp and fusty. Also I feel it should be made clear about the low doorway to bedroom. Our party member who had to use this room was 6'3" tall and banged his head badly. The bed having a footer panel also needs to be mentioned as it is no good for tall people. By making people aware of these things and proper cleaning it would be a wonderful place to stay.

  • "Positives. Sofa’s and beds very comfortable, good location, ideal for elderly father as had rooms and bathrooms downstairs."

    Negatives Cooker dirty, cobwebs everywhere. Ironing board broke. TV temperamental, could sometimes only get one channel.

  • "Beautiful lodge in rural countryside."

    The lodge can get a little cold and feel damp. We had to heat and air. There is lovely garden setting which would benefit from a bbq (we took our own electrical one). You need to be aware that this is in a rural setting close to farms whereby muck spreading takes place which means that there can be quite a few flies around. A car is essential to get out and about.

  • "As mentioned by other reviews the listing fails to mention the extremely close proximity of an identical house facing straight across a small gravel courtyard."

    No privacy whatsoever- I had to keep the curtains to the main downstairs bedroom closed for most of the time. One does not wish to have eye contact with other people whilst in the lounge! Change the listing description and be honest!!

  • "A great little cottage with plenty of space for seven adults ; very peaceful and scenic setting which unfortunately means a car is a must ."

  • "We had a great week at Maerdy Lodge and William the owner was really helpful."

    The cottage was well-equipped and the electric "log burner" kept us cosy during the initial cooler weather. The cottage was in a great rural location which meant it was peaceful with limited passing traffic, but it was also easy to get out to the coast and up to St David's. We spent most of our week exploring the coastline between Solva and Porthgain (where we enjoyed excellent fish and chips on our last night). We enjoyed getting our milk from the "milking parlour" at Bay View Stores in Solva - a great way to reduce plastic waste and highly recommend the local produce being sold there too. The proximity of Maerdy Cwtch, the cottage opposite wasn't a problem for us as we were the only guests during our week's stay and the two properties would be ideal for two families holidaying together, but could perhaps be made more obvious in the property listing. Maerdy Lodge was a great base and we'd definitely consider a return visit.

  • "We were very pleased with the cottage, it was lovely and warm with the central heating and the electric fire, and always plenty of hot water."

    Very spacious en-suite bedroom, the other downstairs bedroom next to the bathroom was quite tight, we didn't use the two upstairs bedrooms but they were a great size. Kitchen well equipped and the cottage was in a lovely quiet location. Would certainly recommend to family and friends.

  • "The house is in a lovely quiet location with beautiful views."

    The house was a little draughty at times, but it was exceptionally windy while we stayed there. We were a family of six adults and it felt a little small for six at times, there is only seating for six on the sofas. The local beaches were great for surfing and we enjoyed walking along the coastal path to Solva and back.

  • "We had a wonderfully relaxing time at Maerdy Lodge."

    A small note, a couple of baking trays in the kitchen would be useful

  • "Unluckily we experienced 3 days of horrific weather and the house was chilled as it hadn't been used in some weeks, we did have quite a draft coming through the windows during the gale, moving the curtains around, once the house warmed up it was very comfy and very well equipped."

    This is a lovely house and would be perfect in the summer, we would like to return. There was a small fault on the ensuite shower, the shower head adjuster is broken.

  • "The cottage was very clean and spacious."

    The four bedrooms were all a good size as was the kitchen and lounge/dining room There were also 2 bathrooms which will be handy if there is a larger party We received a warm welcome upon arrival from Dave who services the cottage. The location of the cottage was good. It was easy to access from the main road and is in a very quiet position, surrounded by the countryside.

About the location


St Davids 6 miles; Haverfordwest 12 miles.

A superb village around a tidal harbour where boats can be launched and walks along the dramatic coast path will be a delight any time of the year. This pretty little village may be small but offers friendly pubs serving good food, a fish and chip shop, gift shops, art galleries and a nearby superb woollen mill shop where special gifts can be bought to remember your stay in Wales. Lazy days sitting and watching the ebb and flow of the tide and the boats bobbing in and out of the harbour are a sheer delight. Visit the nearby woollen mill itself to sit by the waterwheel, go into the weaving shed or enjoy a break in the cafe. Just a few miles from Solva you can visit St Davids, the smallest city in Britain, with its magnificent St Davids Cathedral and wander the small streets to again find unique gifts, eat a hearty meal or an afternoon tea, or just sit in the peaceful grounds of the cathedral. Whitesands Bay with its superb beach offers relaxing days or maybe some surfing. Take boat trips to spot dolphins and wonderful sea birds or take bike rides along country roads. A wonderful location to enjoy your Welsh holiday.

Note: open staircase to the fist-floor, care to be taken
