  • "House was absolutely great, spacious, comfortable, well equipped and a perfect location for a walk along the most incredible coastal path."

  • "Great place to stay and an ideal location for walking the top part of the Pembrokeshire Way."

    A nice large house idea for four adults and all their stuff. The kitchen had everything necessary to cook a really good meal and a large fridge freezer, microwave, washing machine and tumble dryer in an offshoot to the kitchen completed our requirements. We has a couple of issues with the heating and the internet but both were sorted out extremely promptly and I am sure the owners will look to up-grade the internet given that fibre-optic is now available to the premises.

  • "The house was comfortable and well equipped and well located."

    The only key challenge was the quality and reliability of the internet connection which was very poor. The service would frequently be inoperable for periods of half hour to hour at times. This was problematic for me as I was originally meant to be working attending a number of web conferences in during our stay, but had to abandon plans as the connection was not reliable enough. Luckily my customers were understanding of situation but I had to ask colleagues to take on my responsibilities in my absence which was certainly not ideal. I did not report at the time as it was quite evident from my past experience that this would not be a "quick fix" and would almost certainly involve a BT engineer visit.

    Many thanks for your review, we are pleased that you found Greenbanks comfortable and well equipped for your holiday in Pembrokeshire. We're sorry that you experienced issues with the internet connection speed during your stay. We were unaware of this issue and we would have happily have taken it forward, had we been notified of it at the time. As it happens, our most recent guests reported the same issue during their stay and we contacted BT who visited within 48 hours and reported back that there was an external fault that was outside of our control. BT have now resolved this fault and we now have good internet access and speed at Greenbanks for our guests to enjoy. Property Owner

  • "A lovely house on edge of Dinas Cross."

    Despite being only 50m across small green from the A487 there was no problem with road noise and garden was quiet and private with distant sea view with fabulous sunsets over that view. The coast is stunning and the walk down to isolated beach from the house was a delight. ( 15 mins down , 20 mins back due to hill). House was amazingly equipped especially for cooks like us!. We ate in other than amazing Fish & Chips from Pat's Plaice a few minutes down the road. Local lamb from Newport was delicious. Living room extension is very comfortable with doors out to nice patio and garden. Take your own patio cushion pads. Barbecue & utensils very good; local fresh burgers and sausages hard to beat. Beds comfortable.

  • "We had a great week at Greenbanks."

    We were a family bubble of six adults and were pleasantly surprised to find the house spacious and comfortable. The distant view of the sea from the living/dining room and garden was better than we had expected from the website, and was a real tonic in these restricted times. It is a 15 minute walk from the house down hill to a lovely bay where you can join the Coastal path. We walked from the house to Cardigan one day and to Newport another, picnicking on the cliffs on the way. It is sooo beautiful. The house is fully equipped, as other guests have mentioned. Loads of cooking and e.g. Tupperware equipment - really thoughtful. Multiple hairdryers. Helpful owner offered advice and extended our arrival and leaving times as no other guests preceded or followed at that time. We mostly kept to ourselves because of CV, taking most of our food with us - there was plenty of storage space in the kitchen cupboards and huge fridge freezer. We did visit Dyffryn Fernant garden which was only 4 minutes away by car and lovely, and took boat trip from St David’s around Ramsey Island to see the seals etc , great fun and also clean and safe. We’d come again, no doubt!

  • "A spacious and very well equipped cottage, in a great location for exploring the region."

    Everything was at it should be and more, no complaints whatsoever. our stay was only for four nights but honestly, you'd have no problem staying here for a fortnight. Though we ate out each day and did no cooking the kitchen (with separate utility) is superbly equipped for self-catering. All 4 bedrooms were clean, comfortable and cosy, we all slept very well. It's a home from home.

About the location


Newport 2.5 miles.

The scattered village of Dinas Cross has a well stocked mini market store and a pub, and nestles between the Preseli Mountains and the wonderful Pembrokeshire Coast Path. Pwll Gwaelod and Cwm-Yr-Eglwys beaches are both minutes away, both with breathtaking scenery offering the opportunity for tranquil days in perfect settings, and are almost unnoticed by the general public unless they leave the main route through the village, with there being a petrol station, two pubs a fish and chip shop, as well as a restaurant down at Pwll Gwaelod beach. Nearby Newport is a quirky seaside town steeped in history, with various shops, tea rooms and pubs and is also a great place to go boating. With castles, mills, craft centres and golf courses galore scattered all over this beautiful Welsh county, this is the perfect base for a break all year round.
