  • "Loved "Garth" and the general area."

    The house was very comfortable and warm, I think we practically lived in the conservatory. The cooker hob took a little bit of getting used to, and perhaps a few more plates would be helpful. The owner took the time to come over to make sure we were ok, which was nice, and the Welsh cakes and fresh flowers were a nice gesture. Would definitely recommend.

    The welcome pack was a nice touch as was the homemade welshcakes. Daughter enjoyed the selection of board games.

  • "A perfect location to stay and explore the Pembrokeshire coast and countryside."

    Garth has all the facilities required for a comfortable stay which was enjoyed by us and our friends, making it a memorable experience.

  • "Garth cottage was very spacious, great location, comfortable with nice views."

    There was nearly everything in the cottage to make your stay great. There was a couple of things we thought would improve the stay, a radio, a larger fridge as the one in the kitchen is a under counter one so for eight people it’s not big enough, there is space in the utility room. Also paintwork needs doing but the cottage is so busy with bookings at the moment that may have to wait till winter. Good pub close by, only opens some nights, good food and plentiful. We would stay again if in the area

  • "We all just love this house."

    It’s relaxing and just love the room! The conservatory is our favourite and I sat watching the weather for hours. The property has everything you need Definitely will be returning again! I did have a bit of an issue on this stay with back pain as the mattress is very hard however it does not put me off returning and it’s probably personal preference. The owner is very responsive and helpful and the welcome goodies are very much appreciated

  • "An enjoyable week in a lovely part of Wales."

    The kitchen is well equipped with plenty of plates, dishes and sets of glasses, dishwasher and washing machine. The fridge is too small for up to 8 people. A point that I did make to the owner which he acknowledged as being a valid comment. Otherwise the rooms are all comfortable, large and well furnished. The house is a good size for a group. The garden is ideal for small children. Safe and secure. Thanks for a lovely stay.

  • "Fabulous place ."

    It felt roomy even with 6 adults and 2 children. The conservatory was a family retreat whilst the lounge was a quiet haven. The spacious garden was great for the children and the adults loved a gamed of bowls. The bedrooms were spacious and the whole cottage was beautifully decorated. The real bonus was the welcome pack and the homemade Welsh cakes ! Everything was catered for. Thank you Rhian

  • "Great house which suited our needs perfectly Fantastic views and only a short walk from the pub Peny Bryn Arms which served the most delicious food."

    The only thing that we found frustrating was the cooking facility. The induction hob was difficult to use although we followed the instructions carefully. In the end we gave up and ended up having to eat out more than planned. Overall a brilliant week away with lovely weather. Would recommend

    The view was fantastic as was the conservatory to sit in. The Spare Ribs were excellent at the Penybryn Arms as were the staff. We visited the surrounding areas and went as far as St. David’s. It was fantastic. Thank you for making the property so welcoming.

  • "We had a lovely break, easy access to local amenities, castle and nature reserve."

    There were issues with hob, which were quickly resolved and much appreciated. Only two comments we have, and are in no way negative. We would have gladly put out the rubbish. However, we didn’t know when the collection was, it was early one morning and we didn’t get chance to put it out kerbside in time. We also purchased some oven gloves so not to ruin the towel provided. These were left for another occupant.

    The owners provide everything you need. The conservatory at the back has a 180 degree view of the countryside - really amazing. Access to many areas of Pembrokeshire and the special places to visit are easily found. I woud certainly recommend Garth to my family and friends. One of the best Sykes holiday homes we have stayed in - actually the best!

  • "Lovely bungalow in a great location for visiting the area."

    Excellent facilities with a fantastic view from the conservatory. We would recommend cenarth falls where you can view from the Riverside carpark. Good boardwalk alongside the river. Mwnt beach bit tricky to access, a lot of steps down. Fantastic views for the cliff tops Favourite restaurant was the nags head. It is a short drive away. Excellent steak. The produce market in St Dogmaels is worth a visit, only small. Mandy's mackerel pate is delicious. The Abbey is impressive if you like ruins. Another Happy holiday

  • "Excellent cottage."

    Lovely location. Extremely clean and comfortable. The induction hob took a bit of working out. The conservatory was the highlight but could do with some blinds as it is west facing and the sun at times was too strong.

  • "This property is extremely well-equipped with everything you could wish for to enjoy a very comfortable holiday."

    The kitchen cupboards contained basic condiments and we received a much-appreciated welcome-pack of welshcakes, milk, tea and coffee. The conservatory has lovely wide-ranging views and remains warm all day. It is an ideal relaxing venue for any time of the day. All furnishings were clean and comfortable, as were beds and bathrooms. The cottage is close to all amenities (Cardigan 2.2miles) and there is a pub 2 minutes walk away which serves food with a warm welcome. I would recommend this accommodation to friends and family who want a comfortable relaxing stay and take-in the beautiful west-Wales coastline and amenities. Thank you for sharing this lovely property with your guests.

    The owner had provided a welcome pack but has also ensured that there was other basic essentials on hand when we arrived such as washing up liquid, spare loo rolls, paper kitchen towel etc. The location is great for exploring beautiful Pembrokeshire, Cardigan, Poppit Sands, Aberystwyth etc and a local pub, which did us a lovely meal on our first night, only 5 minutes walk from the house.

  • "What a lovely cottage."

    Added bonus of 2 downstairs on-suites... Ideal for people with mobility issues. Beds were really comfortable. The views from the conservatory was amazing.. We spent most of our time there. Didn't really use the lounge.. We brought our stargazer lights and put them on in the conservatory, was fab.. Thanks to the owners who came to see if we had settled in ok. Lovely welcome pack ie, tea, coffee, milk. And some really tasty welshcakes... Massive bathtowels. Usually when we go away, we always wash the cutlery/plates/cups, but everything was clean, so we didn't need to... But just be aware that it is on a main road, with no path to the town. We got taxi rides to the town which was £6-8. (Which we didn't mind) They do have a local pub which you can walk to.. Would highly recommend this property.

  • "The cottage itself is absolutely lovely."

    Overall, we enjoyed our stay. Sadly, because it is on a major 'A' road - which we were not aware of - it was very noisy with heavy traffic throughout day and night. The beds actually shake when heavy goods vehicles pass by. That really is the only let down of this well-equipped, spacious cottage. We would recommend the cottage, but would make sure they are aware of the road and noise from it. The area is stunning and well worth a visit. Walks from the cottage are not really recommended because of the busy road, but gorgeous places to walk are a very short drive away.
