  • "Lovely location just a short walk from beautiful Nolton Haven beach."

    Would have been great to have a dishwasher, especially on holiday!

  • "We found everything as we expected from the listing except it does say 'open fire'."

    Not a problem for us but might be for someone else. We had a lovely, comfortable two weeks, perfectly central for all our getting out and about the area we love so much. Owners are lovely and friendly and would be there if we needed them. Only suggestion I would add is maybe a vacuum cleaner? I like to just hoover up before we leave as we have a dog. Everything else was perfect for us as two couples, one teenager, two spaniels.

  • "A lovely looking cottage from outside and in a lovely location for people who love to go off exploring the area, beach goers and doggie owners, but not overly impressed with the inside of the cottage."

    Now I know it is an old building on what used to be a working farm (20 years ago), but there are issues which need to be addressed. For one is the overpowering damp smell as soon as we walked in, seemed to be concentrated more in the kitchen but it was throughout the property, by the end of the week it had mostly gone as we had windows open in every room when we were in. We felt the cottage wasn't cleaned very well as for example there was thick dust on the dressing/bedside tables along with other places including (of all places) the toilet roll holder, also the extractor fan over the hoblooked like it had never been cleaned as it was so thick with greese/oil that the removable vents were yellow and so sticky dust was hanging from it. The property needs alot of TLC, as the pipes scream when using any hot water taps, and also makes one of the bedroom sinks whistle therefore not being able to use a hot tap if someone may be asleep. Also needs repair work to fix the ceiling which looks like would happily fall on you while you sleep and the fridge/freezer is noisey when it was trying to get to temperature and very likely needs replacing. The kitchen ware also needed a good wash before we could use what we needed to use as some items were not in a usable state and could do with more than just 1 chopping board. The side gate to access the front door to this property does not open. One of my main reasons for booking any holiday cottage is to have an open log fire or log burner as we both love them and don't have one at home and this property was advertised as having one and showed it as open for use in the photos. Now the weather didn't call for us to want to use it other than one night when it was colder and wet outside but we could not as the log burning fireplace had been blocked off and replaced with a log burning effect hot air blower therefore not as advertised at all. Over all I'm not impressed with this property but it was a roof over our heads for somewhere to rest between our walks and exploring of Pembrokeshire with our dog. The owner seemed nice enough as we saw him a few times feeding the resident farm cats and he dropped round some fly tape after we had mentioned there was a couple of fly's bugging the 3 of us in the evening. I'm sure that with some work and TLC this property could be amazing but it's not to the standard for money which we had on our previous Welsh cottage in October last year.

  • "This was a lovely cottage, it had everything that we needed although beds really should have washable mattress protection, especially in these COVID times."

    In a particularly cold spring, with storage heaters rather than radiators, it was not that warm. I would not chose to stay here in winter. It’s very handy for walking the coastal path, and there are excellent beaches nearby, and plenty of shops etc in Haverfordwest which is a 15 minute drive away.

  • "Very nice location."

    Excellent in every way. Comfortable cottage with lots of facilities which reflected the cost of renting in every way. Only one chopping board which is a risk for food hygiene ( fresh meat chopped on same Board as bread for example). Would have been nice to have a dishwasher and a washing line to hang clothes to dry, but we had a great week and would come back because of the great location.

  • "Great cottage - exactly as described ( nothing fancy but comfortable and clean and great location) Only one problem for us (as had been pointed out on previous reviews) was tiny garden at front of cottage - this was fine for us as space to sit out BUT our Labrador was able to jump over wall onto road so we couldn’t let him out off a lead."

    Otherwise fantastic place.

  • "We had a lovely holiday because Pembrokeshire is a stunning place."

    The host was very friendly, while the picture in the advert does not reflect the charm of the place. Nolton village is quiet but pretty and the stables are every so friendly. Horse riding on the beach was one of my nicest experiences ever. The Haven brasserie serves the best chips in the UK!

  • "Stone Lodge is perfectly situated to explore the stunning Pembrokeshire coast but still really close to shops for supplies."

    The cottage was cosy, had everything we needed, including an open fire which made the stay even nicer knowing we had this to come home to. The owners had even made up the fire for our arrival. Although the details state thee may be road noise, I did not notice anything. The noisiest it got was when the ponies from the local riding school went past. Fantastic vegetarian food at Newgale in the Duke of Edinburgh and also in St David’s in the hotel situated in the centre. Dog friendly, very helpful owners, loved it All three of us are hoping to return soon.

    It is also well placed for travelling by car to all the main places of interest in the South West corner of Wales. The owners are very helpful and hospitable - they even gave us a "guided tour" of a fabulous house they are renovating just down the road in Nolton Haven. We will definitely return to this holiday cottage again and hope that we enjoy the same fantastic weather that we have had during this year's holiday.

  • "We loved staying in Stone Cottage."

    It was well kept, comfortable, warm, unpretentious and brilliantly located. Plenty of space for 5 of us plus our dog, and wonderful walks on the doorstep, beautiful Pembrokeshire coastline and beaches. The only (very small) down was the 'enclosed garden' was not really secure enough to let our curious beagle out into unattended, and was also shared with the main farmhouse. Otherwise, a really lovely stay, thank you so much.

  • "Extremely beautiful part of the country."

    Would return to the area, but not to this cottage. The owners were very friendly and helpful, the cottage was clean and well presented. The problem we had was the patio area was adjacent to the road, not very open to the sun, and quite cramped. Not the owners fault, they had done the best they could with what was available. Part of our holiday enjoyment comes from sitting on an evening chilling with a glass on the patio.

About the location

NOLTON HAVEN

Haverfordwest 8 miles; St Davids 10 miles.

Nolton Haven is a wonderful seaside village, located on the renowned Pembrokeshire Coast Path and within the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park. This sleepy little village has a sheltered sandy beach where you can sit and relax, explore rock pools, or join the spectacular coastal path for beautiful scenic walking. A country pub serving food overlooks the bay, and you have the opportunity of horse riding via the local village riding school. From this delightful village you can enjoy all Pembrokeshire has to offer: sandy beaches, historic castles, churches and houses, wonderful wildlife both on and off shore with boat trips to the bird island of Skomer and Ramsay, and for something more exhilarating, whitewater rides. The smallest city in the UK, St. Davids, is nearby, with its majestic cathedral, Bishop’s Palace, National Park visitor centre/art gallery and array of unique little shops, tea rooms and eating places, while the bustling but quaint seaside resort of Tenby can be reached in about forty minutes, offering painted Georgian properties set along the bay, and a variety of restaurants. Also well worth a visit are Barafundle Beach, Porthgain, the fossil beach of Marloe Sands and Newgale Beach, great for surfing and water sports, while cycling, fishing, rock climbing and coasteering can also be enjoyed in the area. From the height of summer to a cool winter’s day, you will love your stay in this delightful part of Wales.
