  • "A lovely week at the house."

    To note re maintenance. Bedroom door overlooking estuary with single beds doesn’t close. Shower screen over bath leaks. Would suggest for hygiene reasons pillows have pillow protectors fitted.

  • "We had an excellent stay at Curlew cottage."

    The property stood on the side of the estuary with beautiful views.We spent many hours on the patio looking at all the birds that were on view, heron, curlew, swans, ducks and much more. The cottage was very comfortable with all that you required to make your stay enjoyable and memorable. Would definitely recommend any family e friend's to visit.

  • "Fabulous cottage, very nice welsh cakes too thank you."

    Small issue with shower, owner was on site within an hour tops and it was sorted. There is something very relaxing about watching the tidal ins and outs of the estuary, very relaxing. Very comfortable stay, would definitely recommend. Need a pair of kitchen scissors! That's the only moan so must have been a wonderful stay, it was! Please note that there were differences in the detail that Sykes provided and other details pertaining to the cottage on site. For instance one said you could arrive at 4 the other 5, there were other inconsistencies. There was no mention of Smart TV just Freeview..

    Great location with so much to see and do. We will definitely be booking the curlew again. Pembrokeshire is amazing.

  • "This is a fantastic location for discovering Pembrokeshire."

    Our children loved crabbing and playing near the bridge at low tide and the house was very conveniently located near shops and commerces. Lots of information provided by the hosts to help us during our stay and the house was clean and well presented. We did find a problem with one shower but the hosts were very reactive, understanding and willing to fix the issue immediately.

  • "Pros. The cottage is in a very good condition and the location is just great."

    Cottage was very neat and clean with all amenities available. The balcony is great for morning tea and to chill out in evenings. Cons. WiFi is a bit of an issue and there are no signals most times on first floor.

  • "Overall we enjoyed our stay in Curlew but feel a few points need addressing."

    In the electric shower en suite bathroom the socket holding the shower spray head was broken and the spray head tended to fall out, also the water would suddenly turn cold for no apparent reason. The extractor fan in the other en suite bathroom didn't work; as there is no window in this room a working extractor fan is essential. The window in the down stairs toilet wouldn't open; has this been secured closed for security reasons? The central heating boiler requires re-pressurizing and salt is required in the dish washer. Kitchen equipment was adequate but minimal, the potato peeler is broken. A few more glasses especially thinner wine glasses would be appreciated. The terrace receives sun from late morning onwards so a sun shade/parasol would be appreciated.

  • "The cottage was in a fabulous position - overlooking the Castle Pill Estuary, facing west with two sets of french windows opening onto the patio, making the rooms very light ."

    It was wonderful to watch the ebb and flow of the tide and see all the seabirds on the water and shore. The lights from across the estuary reflected in the water at night, adding to the atmosphere. A great place to stay if you like kayaking or paddle boarding. The patio was a great place to relax on and is not overlooked at all. The house and furnishings were modern and comfortable with plenty of bathrooms! The property was very clean. Milford Haven with supermarkets and restaurants is just a couple of minutes away. We walked the Pembrokeshire Coastal Path from this property and will move onto another section and another area next year and are sorry not to be coming back immediately - thoroughly recommend.

  • "We had the most wonderful Christmas at Curlew."

    We were a party of six (ranging in age from 25-83!). The property was clean and tidy with ample provision for cooking and food preparation. It was warm and comfy and tastefully decorated for the Festive Season. The downstairs space/kitchen area, was light and pleasant and afforded spectacular views over the water, as did the bedrooms, which gave us a different perspective each morning. We cannot praise this accommodation and its location highly enough. This property provided an excellent base for both relaxing and getting out and about to enjoy some of the spectacular scenery. Having experienced numerous cottage holidays over the years, this will stand out as one of the very best.

    The scenery is out of this world and nothing better waking up to see water and lucky for us the sun shining everyday :-) We travelled out most days and found some beautiful places. If you just want a relaxing holiday this house is for you or a perfect base for travelling around. Nothing more perfect watching the sun go down on the balcony, after a busy day, with a vino in your hand. I recommend that you read the visitors book which gives lots of ideas of places to eat and places to go.

The property

The spacious, light and airy living accommodation has the same wonderful views, and access to the terrace for alfresco dining.

The direct access down stone steps to the shingle beach make it perfect for walks along the shoreline discovering so much at low tide, and watersports when the tide is in.
