  • "Our stay was lovely."

    Peace and quiet as there is no TV or Wi-Fi. We thought we would miss them but we didn’t. The week flew by. It’s so peaceful with walks straight from the house. Milk and Welsh cakes was a lovely touch, with fresh flowers as well. Thank you for a great holiday

    Thank you for your positive feedback, good that you had a lovely peaceful holiday. Property Owner

  • "Rhos y Clegryn is an exceptionally secluded Welsh stone cottage which has been sympathetically renovated and extended to provide comfortable sleeping accommodation for 3 adults."

    Patchy 3G, together with the absence of TV and WiFi was a positive for us and we felt exceptionally relaxed at the end of our holiday. The owners have really gone the extra mile in dog-friendliness and our 3 dogs loved their stay as much as we did. The Pembrokeshire coastline is stunning and a couple of the beaches are within walking distance of the cottage. A plentiful selection of books and an eclectic selection of CDs made for relaxing evenings and really enabled us to recharge our batteries. Thanks to Mike and Fiona for a very well- managed and beautifully presented holiday let.

    Delighted that you and your dogs appreciated the peace and quiet of Rhos y Clegyrn . thank you for your positive feedback. Property Owner

  • "The cottage is so cosy, we had the best time."

    Enjoying the silence! Only hearing the birds, we were treated to swallows swooping so close to us, a cookoo, a chaffinch nesting with babies also a mouse family in the garden. The owner also left us with Welsh cakes,dog treats and milk plus tea coffee .we actually stayed at the cottage in the day, rather than go out, it was so relaxing just enjoying the sunshine in the garden. The lane leading to the cottage was so pretty. All in all we had a very enjoyable week and were sorry to leave.

    Thank you for this lovely feedback. So glad you appreciated the special nature of this beautiful place. The new mattress arrives on 29th June. Property Owner

  • "We found the cottage extremely cold , we used all firewood we could lay our hands on to light the fire, unable to access more from store because difficulty with key."

    Forced to use electric blanket because of coldness in bedroom which made bedding damp. Generally the cottage was well equipped and dog friendly. Very remote but owner was very helpful in guiding us to the property.

    There was a good supply of firewood and kindling to start you off, as is usual. Replacements are available at the local garages. The logs in the shed have not yet been sufficiently seasoned, as required by DEFRA, and neither have they been cut small enough for the stove. I am surprised that you had trouble with the shed key; I have checked and it works although the door itself is a little stiff at ground level. The log store is at the back of the cottage, just beyond the dustbin, behind the bathroom; it is completely open. Airing the bed before making it up in the morning usually prevents retention of body heat & moisture acquired overnight. Property Owner

    Comfortable, clean and original. Birdsong in the morning and evening, walks to the coast path. This cottage is just beyond over praising. It also is in the ownership of a kind, thoughtful and considerate owner. Perfect even for your four legged companion. Book it and relax.

    Thank you for your lovely, positive feedback. Rhos y Clegyrn really is a dog's paradise, & as you experienced, peaceful & pretty good for people too. Property Owner

    The cottage is cosy and comfortable, and the king-sized bed is nice and soft - which I particularly appreciated. If the weather turns cool and damp there's a lovely log fire that quickly warms the place up. We were grateful for the well equipped kitchen, and the rustic dining table upon which we ate most of our evening meals. Idyllic!

    Thank you for your kind words; we're so glad that you enjoyed the special atmosphere of our cottage. Property Owner

    Beautiful tradition cottage, perfect for couples or people who just want to relax and unwind. Fiona is a very attentive host and made us feel very welcome.

    Thank you for your feedback; we will take another look at our cleaning schedule, also check on the over -all comfort. Without wi-fi and tv we cannot really extend the facilities, unless we exchange the washing machine for a dishwasher? We will ask some of our regular guests how they'd feel with the substitution.

  • "Very enjoyable relaxing holiday in a tranquil setting."

    Cottage was clean, cosy and very comfortable.Dogs had a blast, large enclosed garden to wander in plus easy access to many wonderful coastal walks with dips in the sea. Weather very kind, perfect for kicking back in the garden, rejoicing in the bird life and nature. Woollen mill 5 minutes down the road serving good coffee then a lovely stroll from there to the beach at Abermawr. Second time at this cottage and as enjoyable as the first.

    Terrific! So glad you chose to return to Rhos y Clegyrn; that you and your dogs had a good time there and in the surrounding countryside. Thank you for your lovely comments. Property Owner

    Perfect retreat for creative people, nature-lovers and anyone just wanting peace and quiet. If you can’t survive without TV, Wi-Fi, and barely a phone signal then this cottage is not for you. It was bliss for us and our dogs loved it too. The owners, Fiona and Mike, are lovely people and nothing is too much trouble, they are there if you need them. This was our second stay in the cottage and we will definitely return again in the future.

  • "The cottage is actually much better than the photos!"

    Access is via a beautiful, narrow, country lane and the cottage itself is secluded and extremely quiet. I don't think we heard a car, or another vehicle, all week! Everything was very clean when we arrived. We had not been to Pembrokeshire before but we will be returning...probably to re-stay at this cottage - because there is some fantastic scenery and great walks in the area. And finally, for any bird lovers, on the bird feeder (situated perfectly in the front garden), we enjoyed long daily encounters with jays, woodpeckers and lots of little songbirds.

    Thank you. we are pleased that you appreciated the tranquillity of Rhos y Clegyrn. Property Owner

I'm sorry you were disappointed by the facilities; what would you like to have found, that was not there? (We choose not have a TV or WiFi for reasons of tranquility and isolation.)

  • "When we went to bed on the first night the bed, pillows and duvet were so damp they felt wet."

    There was black mould on the walls in tje bedroom and in the single bedroom. Also behind the toilet as well. The walls were so wet in the bedroom when you wiped your hands down the wall its covered in white emulsion. There also is no underfloor heating inthe bedroom, in fact it was jit and miss in all the cottage.

    Thank you for your feedback and I am sorry that the property did not meet up to your expectations on this occasion; I can see you have been before. Due to the age of the stone walls, they can suffer from slight damp, but we did not find them to be wet when we visited after your stay. We did find a small bit of mould which is being treated. We do provide a stove and underfloor heating but no longer advertise this. I hope you enjoyed your stay otherwise. Property Owner

    Probably our best Sykes cottage yet! The cottage is very well equipped -and we appreciated the doggie friendliness, including the futon which my old dog was very happy to claim as his bed! Our only comment would be that the sitting room furniture really isn't very comfortable - we 3 are average height people so usually find most furniture comfortable. Also, any chance of a shower? But, I repeat, we shall certainly hope to book the cottage again.

The property

5 miles from Goodwick.

A stylishly renovated Welsh longhouse near Goodwick, South Wales.

In a quiet and secluded spot surrounded by greenery, Rhos Y Clegryn is the perfect stay to get away from the hustle and bustle of day-to-day life.

A walk through the traditional farmhouse-style door welcomes you into the open plan living area, complete with traditional stone-tiled floor, a stone fire place with woodburning stove and a rustic, traditional cottage kitchen.

Rhos Y Clegryn comes with two refreshing bedrooms and a bathroom, bright and airy rooms with traditional decor.

Outside the property there is a surrounding lawn with furniture as well as 360 degree stunning views of the greenery and countryside around with excellent dark night sky viewing.

A walking path leads from the garden out through the bushes and trees encompassing the cottage, making it the perfect place for walking with or without dogs and close by is one of Pembroke-shire's cycle routes which passes along the nearest road.

Goodwick sits 5 miles away from Rhos Y Clegryn, a beautiful coastal town that's definitely worth a visit and very close you will find ancient stones; a cromlech & a massive standing stone.

The area has a range of pubs and shops, as well as a small supermarket.

If you are also down for a substantial amount of time, there are ferries going from Goodwick to Ireland twice a day.

Fishguard lies just 2 miles from Goodwick, also offering independent pubs, shops and cafes, as well as the Last Invasion Tapestry.

The well-known Welsh coastal path is so close you have to take a walk along, you may even see some dolphins and seals in the sea beyond.

A stunning cottage in a tranquil location.
