    Lots of helpful information left with guidance to nearby attractions. The views were beautiful and we loved seeing our neighbours (lambs). We will definitely be returning as everything was just perfect! Thank you Janet and Paul you have done an incredible job!

    2 adults a 16 year old and a 9 year old. This is our 2nd stay at the cottage. It was amazing couldn't have asked for better. Log fire lit on arrival, Christmas tree lit up beautifully, hot tub perfect for a soak in the evening. The cottage itself was perfect for our Christmas holiday, everything was great to make the stay lovely. Again hope to stay again in the new year. Thank you so much Paul and Janet.

  • "Paul and Janet have an absolute gem of a property in a beautiful remote setting with only the sheep and cattle for company!"

    The cottage really was a home from home for us, from the open plan kitchen dining area with the massive country kitchen table to the spacious bedrooms and the lovely walk-in shower! There was even a washing machine and bbq in the store at the side by the car port! Fantastic hot tub for relaxing after a day seeing the amazing sites of Pembrokeshire and Carmarthenshire was just the ticket. Then a nice few glasses of wine watching TV or reading in front of the log burner! Massive plus point for us was that Buster our bully could potter around the enclosed courtyard that houses the hot tub whilst we were in it or stay inside and have a nosey through the french doors! Even storm Arwen couldn't put us off, it was magical watching the lightening across the valley in the dark with only the log burner on after a short power cut and Paul bless him like he didn't have enough to do looking after his livestock was straight round asking if we needed candles,logs or anything else! Will we be going back? Oh Yes! Would we recommend Stable Cottage? Absolutely! Its a fantastic place to get away from the rush of daily life and an ideal base to explore the outstanding beaches and countryside that the area has to offer. Thank you Paul and Janet!

  • "A lovely secluded property."

    Clean and tidy. Lounge area. Comfy reclining sofa. Although one recliner handle broken. Arm chair very comfy and reclining and rocking. Kitchen was adequate but could do with a dishwasher. Twin room. Clean and tidy with storage. Double room could do with a wardrobe but sadly nowhere to put it. Bathroom large rainfall shower. Only fault was toilet backed up causing toilet water to come through the shower drain. Only real annoyance was the flies. Far to many. Don’t know how they got in. But we killed about 30 Not the owners fault as we were on a farm. The owners were very helpful and any issues were quickly solved.

    The location was peaceful and rural but not to far from lovely beaches and a local town. The hot tub was in a private courtyard and was nice to use after walks and in the evening to do stargazing. The owners were welcoming and happy to help with any questions. Overall a very relaxing break.

  • "The hosts were great and very helpful both prior to our arrival and during."

    The cottage was lovely and spacious with the wood burner and hot tub being fabulous additions. A few enhancements would make it perfect though - you do need a dishwasher in holiday accommodation as people’s standard of washing up isn’t always hygienic. Some wardrobe/hanging space in bedrooms would be helpful as would a shelf in the shower. As I said, these are enhancements and not meant as criticism as we would definitely stay again.

  • "Cottage was very clean and hosts Paul and Janet were very welcoming and helped us out with a non slip shower mat for our disabled daughter."

    Hot tub was lovely and the log burner very cosy in the evenings. Kitchen lacked a few basic essentials. Not much room to store food either. Lack of wardrobes in bedrooms was a big issue. 4 coat hangers on hooks was very inadequate for 4 adults for 7 days. Had problems with wet towels no where to hang them. Could do with rail/clothes airer for drying towels and swimsuits after hot tub use as small towel rail in shower room not big enough. Despite a DVD player and collection of dvds there was no remote control to work it and no extension to plug in with tv plugged in and sky box. Parking if you have a big car is tricky. Cottage down a long bumpy track with pot holes.

    The hot tub made the children's week! It was excellent and very big. The log burner was lovely for us in the evening and it was so quiet we had the chance to relax. The cottage is lovely. It's down the end of a long lane which is very bumpy and a bit tricky to navigate in a van as has pot holes. The kitchen could do with a few more basic cooking items like a baking tray and wok but we managed to cook at home most evenings (due to covid restrictions). Thank you for the gifts on arrival and quick responses on text and email. Very helpful.

    For example, a half decent sharp knife for preparation of food would have been handy. Also we couldn’t find the remote for the DVD player and the WiFi had a habit of dropping out. Having said that these are only minor issues compared to the rest of the experience and the hot tub was amazing. We would definitely recommend this cottage.

  • "It is a relatively new cottage converted from stables hence the name."

    It is on a working farm. Its beautifully decorated and the wooden beams are fantastic. The bed was comfy. The hot tub a delight. We only used the fire for 2 nights as not really needed as the cottage was so warm. It was lovely to see the lambs in the lambing shed next to the cottage and better waking up to their bleating rather than traffic. The owners who live close by leave you alone but are there if you need them. Single lane up to cottage has lots of pot holes some large so drive very carefully and get to the cottage while still light.

  • "Stable Cottage."

    This is a beautiful cottage with amazing owners who took on our last second booking. ( We booked on the day of arrival ) From the simplicity of making the booking to the contact from the owners of the cottage we couldn't of asked for more. The cottage is beautifully finished with just the right amount of furnishings to make you feel at home but leaving enough space to bring your own belongings for your stay. We had contact moments after we booked with Sykes to re-confirm our booking and making sure we had received the email with the address and directions. We confirmed we would be arriving early evening, to our delight the owner (Paul) had the log fire roaring and the hot tub bubbling for us. We were advised of some beautiful dog friendly beaches and places to eat. It was perfect, totally private when we wanted it to be and great customer support and advice when we needed it. We will book again. Dave

    Given we work in London it has been excellent to spend a week in the middle of no where on a farm. Lovely hearing the farm animals. Excellent facilities hot tub, bbq and log fire washing machine which we made use of. Paddock provided for the dog to run around. Although our pooch managed to escape out of it to go and visit a field of the sheep but he’s an adventurous little pup. Most dogs would just be happy for the space to run around in! Local shop 2 miles away which is a spar,’otherwise need to travel further to local towns. Lovely pubs in the area. Amazing walks. Would recommend a trip to Tenby. Would definitely stay here again if we decide to return to the area. Wonderful accommodation and friendly and welcoming hosts.
