  • "On arrival we didn't find it welcoming as we have with other cottages," no hope you have a lovey stay with us note" or anything."

    the worst toilet paper I have ever seen, and only 3 rolls for 6 adults, would it be that much more expansive to provide better quality. It would have been helpful to comment that the shops pubs restaurant's you could only get to by car, because of the TWO large hills with no footpaths, not safe for walking. I didn't put these comments in the book, but on reflection I should have.

    We found the cottage warm and very comfortable and would definitely book again. There is only one little gripe kitchen needs a few more cooking pots, trays and utensils.

  • "This was a well appointed house in a good location for visiting Pembrokeshire and walking the coast path."

    The beaches and scenery are outstanding in this area. It was lovely to come back to such a comfortable property. Everything was provided so it was home from home. The only small addition, which has been commented on in many reviews, is a small vegetable knife. Would definitely recommend.

  • "We loved this house and its location."

    On the estuary, there was something different to see every day, and a lovely terrace to view it from. Plenty of room in the house and it felt well furnished. One very small gripe was the complexity of the oven and the tvs! The area is beautiful and there is lots to do within a reasonable distance.

  • "The property was as described and we had a nice stay but unfortunately our dog caught fleas."

    We noticed these on our return and it infested our own home which took a long time to get rid of. The oven also stopped working on the last night of our stay. So although we enjoyed our holiday we won’t be staying back at this property again.

  • "Wonderful house!"

    - only one issue is the slippery wooden stair case. It definitely needed edge grips or carpet runner mats, which we had to purchase from Amazon on our 2nd day for £32-as we were staying two weeks and that would have been a major problem as my son has slight balance issues and found them quite difficult. Also our dog likes to come upstairs to see us in the mornings and he was slipping so badly that we were worried he may injure himself. Apart from that we will definitely return - armed with our self adhesive carpet tiles! These cottages ( stayed in Egret before) are probably in my top 3 to stay in West Wales and we’ve stayed in an awful lot of cottages! Amazingly beautiful Peaceful and luxurious holiday home

  • "Reference the review of Siobhan of 1-2 months ago, the shower support was hanging off the wall in the 2nd bedroom ensuite, and the house could do with a deep clean in places."

    The kitchen floor in particular was very dirty when we arrived and although reported to the owner, Cleaners did not attend during our stay. Areas under/behind the beds had not been swept in some while. The window lock in bedroom 2 was defective. Heron is in a very pleasant location, immediately on the water's edge, in a quiet and peaceful residential area. The house had been recently decorated with new soft furnishings, it was comfortable, warm, well equipped and generally clean. It is possible to walk one's dog along the edge of the pil at low tide, otherwise there is limited dog walking from the property. Bring a towel for muddy paws! If the maintenance and cleaning issues have been dealt with, then we would thoroughly recommend Heron.

  • "Very nice property, very well equipped and very comfortable."

    Fab location with lovely views. There are a few available in the row as holiday let's but this is probably the nicest one with lovely furnishings and decor. A spacious house with plenty chairs and sofa room for six people. A bit of maintenance is needed: There were several broken lightbulbs and a dodgy shower fixing and a leaking gutter at the rear, but over all everything very comfortable and well thought out. Could do with a bit of a deeper clean. The terrace is very nice and has sun from mid afternoon through the evening which is just perfect. I would highly recommend this property as a place to stay.

    The sun terrace is great for relaxing in the afternoon as it’s gets the sun so is nice for a drink with friends/family. Beds were nice and comfortable and the property was clean and well equipped. Only one issue, the patio doors would benefit from a safety sticker as one of our group mistook the closed door for an open door and injured themselves walking into it! However, we had a great stay with some nice walks accessible and lovely restaurants visited in Milford Haven Marina.

    Central to all roads to enable you to get out and about to see this part of Wales. Is exactly as shown on website. Two very small gripes no condiments or map of near locality… probably due to Covid restrictions? Went with our two dogs who thoroughly enjoyed all of the walks.

We kept the house clean and tidy through out - we hoovered as my daughters boyfriend was picking up her , he is allergic to dogs so we made sure it was clean when he arrived. I have been charged an extra cleaning bill, for dog hair.... be warned they are not dog friendly at all - they are not friendly to anyone and have ruined the holiday

    Thank you for your feedback. We're sorry that you have chosen to air your comments on our property page following our complaint to Sykes Cottages on how our property was left by your group. We had received a notification along with images from our cleaning team after your departure as the property was not left in an acceptable condition. We had informed Sykes Cottages as protocol who had contacted you with all the relevant information as various linen had to be replaced, professionally clean soft furnishings, repaint a wall and extra cleaners required to bring the property to the usual standard for the next guests. We in particular have been letting our properties out for over 11 years and very rarely receive a complaint from our cleaners of this severity. Our properties are indeed dog friendly, owning 2 dogs ourselves Property Owner

    There is plenty of parking and generally it is a lovely property. However, given the high cost to hire this property for a long weekend, we would have expected higher standards in a couple of areas. The duvets were really cheap and falling apart - these do need replacing. Additionally, the property would benefit from comfortable outdoor seating which was in better condition. The tables had suffered from the elements and the chairs were not particularly comfy. As such we didn't make the most of the seating area outside which had a tranquil and pretty view.

  • "The cottage promised amazing views and certainly did not disappoint."

    It was amazing to watch the tides and weather changes. The only criticism was we felt it had not been cleaned especially in the current climate this is vital to reassure customers. We found many items belonging to the previous occupiers that had been overlooked and some areas had missed a clean and we do not expect spotless, duvets were poor quality and we wished we had brought our own and sheets too. For the price we would expected more also more cooking crockery and general utensils as we have come across better equipped cottages for much less.

Milford Haven itself is a couple of minutes away, with a couple of large supermarkets and places to eat, but really this is a superb location for exploring the rest of Pembrokeshire as it is well situated for everything it has to offer.
