  • "Best cottage ever."

    Beautiful, modern and cosy. We could stay here much longer and we loved the Jacuzzi. If you want to stay in South Wales go there!

  • "It's a lovely cottage very well stocked and it probably has everything you'll need, with some nice friendly touches."

    There is a book with some photos of the original conversion which is very interesting. The owners are very friendly and approachable if you need to ask any questions. There are lots of places to visit and the coast is amazing. The hot tub is superb, and even has a built in Bluetooth speaker. If you're decided to book, have fun and don't forget to play the Catamouse Mice game. Eric and Deb.

    The cottage has all the facilities and a welcome pack of goodies and necessities which are all you need to step into and start your holiday. Discretely hosted with help offered whenever you need it. The children loved the mouse hunt, reading the poem and finding their little mice to take home. Oh and of course they really loved the hot tub!

  • "We had a fabulous holiday in this perfectly lovely cottage."

    The owners - as well as having the vision to create such a beautiful holiday home - have thought of everything that a holiday guest might need… and more. They have been extremely considerate to guests, including a generous welcome basket, a late check out and there isn’t a long list of must do / do nots. They have created somewhere where you can just totally relax and enjoy the beautiful cottage. As well as being so well equipped, the house is full of lovely decorative touches, and the search for the ‘catamouses’ is just wonderful! Thank you for a truly lovely stay.

    Helen & Julian couldn’t have done any more to make our stay stay any better, walking in the front door to see the property dressed for it first Christmas in 70 Years! The welcome basket was a lovely touch and our 2 year old absolutely loved the Christmas Tree all light up as we walked into the living room! The place had everything we needed and even though it was freezing cold outside, the cottage was always lovely and warm… never needed to use the log burner. Also had plenty of use out of the hot tub, well covered over so could still enjoy in the bad weather. We’ll certainly be returning here for another break soon! Jon, Maria & Harry. X

  • "Wind, rain and weather warnings!"

    Catamouse was a lovely cottage to hunker down in. It is renovated to such a high standard, every detail: cushions, blinds, bedding and it is very comfortable and clean too. Despite the weather we used the hot tub a few times! The walled garden is well-kept and has been well-designed. The location means you need a car to get anywhere but most places are 30-40 minutes at most. We would highly recommend this cottage.

    This was our second visit to Pembrokeshire within the last month & we certainly found a little gem in Catamouse.
