  • "Goldfinch was one of the best holiday accommodations we have stayed at - the property was of the highest standard including the fixtures and furnishings made it feel very welcoming."

    The cleanliness was of the highest standard. Goldfinch's location next to the tidal creek is brilliant, just watching the tide rising and falling. The adjacent woodland and river were awesome. Further a filed Goldfinch provides easy access to both secluded beaches and coastal walks as well as to the major towns of west Pembroke. Recommend Goldfinch as high value for the price and will be back. Thank you to the owners and Sykes Holidays.

  • "We had a very good week."

    Weather not brilliant. It is my third stay at Goldfinch Cottage. It is in a very good place to enable you to travel around Pembrokeshire. A small improvement would be if a hand towel was provided for the downstairs toilet. We also had 6 adults staying and only had 3 wine glasses. Otherwise we recommend this cottage and do plan on returning in the future.

  • "Lovely cottage in an idyllic location."

    Very central for visiting other attractions and beaches. A few little niggles, the kitchen would benefit from a clothes dryer as if raining, there is only an airer to dry beachwear and towels. A small paring knife would also be useful. The shaving light in the bathroom was u/s on arrival. These aside, we had a wonderful week at Goldfinch watching the tides come and go, and the birds fishing for crabs and mullet in the sluice pond. Thank you.

  • "We have loved our stay in this lovely house."

    The weather was perfect which meant we sat on the terrace as long as possible. It's a great spot for watching the wildlife and the tide come in and out. My daughter paddle boards and this was a great place to get in and out of the water. Not quite enough comfy seating for 6 adults if you all wanted to sit and watch TV but that's only a small gripe everything else was lovely.

    It was great to watch the tide come and go. It was spacious, very clean and comfortable. Everything had been thought of to provide an excellent stay. Lots of great places to see favourites being Barafundle Bay, Marloes Beach - beautiful scenery. Would definitely recommend!

  • "Having returned from this property today we were keen to leave positive feedback, this property was by far the best we have stayed in, it had lovely views, real quality furniture, wonderful comfy beds and the softest bed linen, the master bedroom was huge,, I have bedroom Envy lol!"

    Nothing in this property has been scrimped on, it has lovely quality interior furnishings and all in all is a high end holiday rental in our opinion, a few people have commented on the sofas, no they are not firm but being leather they are easily sanitiseable bit of a comfort in the current situation. We will be booking again in the near future

    Well laid out kitchen and dining room. The sofas could do with up dating, also needs to be for 6 people. The crockery is tried and could do with a replacement. There are lots of good restaurants in Milford Haven,and lots of lovely places to visit within short distance.Would book this cottage again .

  • "Lovely big property and well equipped."

    Fabulous location. A small thing: Lined curtains or blackout curtains should be considered for the two bedrooms facing the estuary. We weren’t used to being woken up so early by the bright sunshine. Only an issue during the summer months. The mattress in the main bedroom (with a king size) felt like it needs replacing soon.

  • "It was enjoyable sitting on the patio overlooking the tidal inlet."

    The decor was attractive, calm and clean. It was in a good position for driving to various beaches on the Pembrikeshire coastal walk. (We mistakenly left a mobile there and are hoping to be able to pay for its return.)

  • "Such a great location."

    Right on the Pembrokeshire / wales coastal path. Milford haven marina was lovely. Fab restaurant, cafe and shops. The location of the house on the riverbank was fab, lovely sitting area overlooking the water. Loved that each bedroom had its own bathroom. Room for 2 cars to park. Extra area for sitting attached to property. Only a few mentions:- the cottage Sleeps 6 but seating in the lounge area was just for 5 and that was squashed. The flush on the toilet upstairs is very week. There is no garden for the dog to go out to but there is a patch of grass to the side of the property and some nice walks nearby. Lola (dog) loved sitting on the patio looking out over the river, so much wildlife to watch. Really enjoyed our stay, would book with Sykes again. So easy and all booked last minute, the week before. Thankyou.

    The location felt rural, but just a small drive to all the shops and the harbour. Had some lovely little walks with all the family, inc, small children, dog and wheelchair user.

  • "Super location - very peaceful with lots of birdlife, but just a mile away from the supermarket."

    Easy access to lots of beautiful walks and interesting places to visit. House was super - lots of thoughtful touches, and generally well equipped. Lovely views over the estuary, and furnishings v comfy. Spotlessly clean. Just a couple of niggles - no umbrella for shade on patio, and some of the kitchen implements need replacing. Bit short of bowls, no small kitchen knives and the saucepans were a bit ramshackle.

  • "Lovely area, and beautiful house."

    Good restaurants, good beaches - it was all very pleasant. The house is really beautifully furnished and in a lovely setting. We hadn’t realised Milford Haven had oil refineries around, but they do not disturb, and the history of the town (seen in the local museum) is very interesting. We particularly enjoyed a boat trip around Skomer island to see the puffins. Tenby is very quaint with lovely beaches, and then you have the wilder beaches like Marloes. Pembroke Castle is lovely and there are many castles to visit. We had a lovely week.

Vacuum cleaner very inefficient. And instructions for leaving rubbish and recycling stuff not clear - we did not know that the 'Upper Car Park' was several houses away because we were only aware of ours and the adjoining one belonging to the same owners.

The direct access down stone steps to the shingle beach make it perfect for walks along the shoreline, watching small boats pass by and enjoy the variety of birds overhead and on the water.

With parking by the cottage and more shared private parking just up the road there is plenty of room for your own boat too.

The delightfully spacious rooms of this Milford Haven cottage are individually designed and decorated, and the two Juliet balconies give wonderful views from two of the bedrooms as well as the living area.

A perfect setting, all year round.
