  • "Lovely cottage."

    Clean, comfortable and well equipped. Fantastic location, only a short walk to Little Haven and Broad Haven.

  • "The shower was broken and the cushions on the sofas were dirty, I had to wash them."

    There was no shower mat to stand on (once the shower was fixed)

  • "It was excellent."

    Warm and good hot water and excellent wood burner. Really clean. Good instructions. Good equipment - We got a cafetiere in preference to the new coffee maker. The shower could do with a basket for soap etc. The table would be a bit cramped for eating if there were 4 people. Excellent parking and good proximity to excellent pubs and shop and lovely beach.

  • "We had a lovely week in Foxglove Cottage in Pembrokeshire."

    We contacted the owner about a couple of things that she is going to look into but on the whole we were very satisfied, especially the constant hot water, warmth, efficient shower, lovely comfy beds and the facilities in general. This is our 2nd booking with you and we will certainly book with you again.

  • "This was a last minute booking for us and therefore was very happy with accommodation."

    Small from outside and a tardis inside. 2 good size double bedrooms, well equipped kitchen, large sitting room with log burner. Starter pack of wood and kindling provided. Plenty of parking for 2 cars. Property adjacent to owners holiday home. Very peaceful location as owners weren’t there. Perfect location to walk to both Little Haven and Broad Haven beaches. One pub open in Little Haven The St Brides Inn good food, very busy recommend booking. Broad Haven has convenience store, cafe and pub open. The beach is lovely long and sandy, very popular with surfers and dog walkers. My only criticism with the accommodation is that it needs underfloor heating kitchen and bathroom. Perhaps do away with freezer and replace with dishwasher. It took us 24 hours to warm the accommodation- perhaps leave heating ticking over low when not booked. However we had a lovely stay and enjoyed our daily walks. Great location for exploring the local towns, beaches and a must is a visit to St David’s only a 30 minute drive away

  • "This is a delightful cottage, warm, cosy, peaceful."

    The woodstove is a great feature and because our stay was in November, we used it constantly. The beds were very comfortable with quality bedding. The kitchen is well equipped. Really enjoyed our stay.

  • "Perfect cottage for a family of 4, we had a great time and would definitely stay again."

    Well stocked kitchen, really warm cottage even though it was autumn and chilly, slight smell of oil from time to time but nothing major (due to heating system). The only thing we might have appreciated is a clock in the bedroom as it's pitch dark in there at night (it's great!) and using your phone to check the time isn't ideal. Check in / out was easy, really grateful for the outside light being left on for our arrival, parking on the drive was great (thanks for the heads up on the steep turn!). Beautiful area, close to many beautiful beaches

  • "Overall, the cottage is lovely and has a nice updated kitchen and bathroom."

    The beds are very comfortable! My tall husband was unable to prep food in the kitchen due to the slanted roof. The only thing that made me uncomfortable was walking with my two small children on the single track roads around the cottage. The walk down to Little Haven is a 20% slope, but that didn't bother us. I was new to this area so unaware of the road situation.

  • "Really lovely cottage."

    We were very lucky with the weather for our first holiday of 2021. Very clear instructions for arrival. Having grown up holidaying in Little Haven it was a nice change to be based in such a lovely cottage between Little and Broad Haven.

  • "Lovely cottage in a good location."

    10 minutes walk to the village with a couple of good places to eat. Nice and quiet and friendly cows for neighbours.

    Reviewed by NickyOct 2020

  • "My husband and I stayed with our baby and it was an excellent choice."

    It was near enough to Little Haven and Broad Haven to be accessible via a quick walk but located in a very peaceful countryside. As a note, there is a steep hill on the walks to the villages, so you would want a sling if you have a small child. The cottage was very cosy with plenty of room for a travel cot. As a bonus, there is a baby bath, high chair and travel cot available for use should you require then. It was an excellent cottage and exactly what we were looking for. We would highly recommend it when visiting the area.

    Reviewed by SeanSep 2020

  • "Nice cottage."

    some damp areas in bathroom but was okay. Narrow single track room to get to property and the house sign not clear - a bit jaded but otherwise okay. I would warn others of the narrowness of road just to give them the heads up.

    Reviewed by BeverleyAug 2019

  • "We loved Foxglove Cottage - the perfect size for 2 adults and a child."

    The walk down to the beach was only 5 minutes (although it took a bit longer coming back up the steep hill!) and there were plenty of eateries within walking distance.

    Reviewed by AnneJul 2019

  • "The only 2 areas we thought could be improved were 1) The location instructions were quite bizarrely obtuse in the email but looking through the information folder when we eventually found the property those were far more easily followed."

    Perhaps a sign outside the property to say 'Foxglove Cottage' and not 'The Grange' would have helped. 2) there were no drying facilities either an area for a washing line or provision of a clothes horse would be useful

  • "There is no garden area at this property, which could be a disadvantage with a family."

    There is just a gravel drive with table and chairs, however, this is where the cars are parked.

  • "This is a lovely little cottage, well equipped kitchen and lots of books cds and dvds provided for entertainment."

    We had beautiful weather so were out all of the time. Some earlier reviews criticised the cleanliness of the cottage but it was spotless on our arrival. The village of Little Haven is 10 minute walk downhill but the first part of the hill is very steep so it took us 20 minutes to walk back. We would certainly stay here again.

    Lovely location, only downside was the hills getting from the cottage to the two coastal villages is very steep , memtion of this would be good , one of our party was recovering from a serious back problem art the time of our visit so we needed to take the car down evertime .

    There are a few minimal things I expect when renting a cottage and toilet paper and hand soap are some of them; they at least provided washing up liquid.

    We paid you a lot of money for the week and I don’t expect to have to clean up when I arrive,very unhappy and once I read the visitors book realised this has happened a lot,should have been noted before,and has put us off a lot.

  • "Lovely cottage but needs some work to bring fully up to the standard we expected."

    It is clear from the previous comments that some efforts have been made though. Also, more should be made of the VERY steep hill back up from the village, one of our party struggled with this & had to be fetched by car. The postcode given has no relation whatsoever regarding the location & is misleading. Despite all this, we ( the younger members of our party) would probably revisit this cottage again, ( which surprises me too ! ).

    Reviewed by PhilipJun 2018

  • "A great little cottage for four people, in an excellent location (the hill climb back from the village was a bit taxing for us oldies though!"

    ). Beautiful scenery, lovely coastal path walks, plenty of beaches for surfing (the two younger members of the party enjoyed Newgale and Freshwater West in particular), and Poppit Sands near Cardigan was delightful. The cottage was well equipped for four people. Only comment - outside space was just a gravel drive (large). A discrete seating area would have been nice. Pembroke Castle very well worth a visit.

    Reviewed by ChristopherMay 2018

  • "First time we have been disappointed."

    Both the bathroom and kitchen were below standard. We feel that the cottage was overpriced. My first job was to unblock the shower waste, totally blocked up. TV reception was very poor probably due to the aerial facing in the wrong direction. The kitchen needs an update. The cottage served it's purpose but could have been better. We made the mistake of not reading other reviews, some being quite negative.

  • "A very nice and confortable cottage it has all the eqiipment you need and impirtantly the heating works well."

    The cottage is at the top of a quite steep and unlit road from Little Haven so take a torch. Its only a short walk but seems worse after a evening meal. The costal walks are the jewel in the crown for this area.

  • "Coffee maker was full of used coffee in the filter."

    DVD player is ancient and very noisy. The advert should make it clear there is no wi fi- the greeting info suggests you should be out and about rather than using wi fi, therefore it isn't provided. We should make that decision. The weather wasn't always kind and one of our choices of activity was taken away because the decision had been made for us. I found that extremely patronising. In the downstairs bedroom is a vent. When it was windy - and it was very windy - the vent makes an awful racket. This kept us awake more than once. The quilt on the upstairs bed had a coffee stain on it and had very clearly not been washed. The cottage feels like it needs some money being spent on it and we felt it did not justify the grading. We would not use this cottage again.

The property

This beautiful Little Haven cottage is set within the grounds of the owners' holiday home in the village of Little Haven and is the perfect base to explore the whole of Pembrokeshire.

Step into a lovely well-equipped kitchen, which leads into a sitting area with gloriously high ceilings, open beams and original stone walling, retaining the character from the restoration of an old pigsty.

This Little Haven cottage has a stairway leading to a lovely light and airy mezzanine double bedroom, and there is a further double room on the ground floor.

A short walk downhill from this delightful Little Haven cottage takes you to the village, scattered around the lovely small cove where small boats can be launched, rock pools can be explored and relaxing days can be spent on the pretty beach.

The Pembrokeshire Coast Path runs around the cove with the village offering a good selection of cafes, a bistro, pubs and a delightful craft shop.

The larger sandy beach at Broad Haven is just around the bay and Newgale, just a little further from this Little Haven cottage, is a surfer's paradise.

This character Little Haven cottage offers the perfect base to return to each evening to reflect on the day's discoveries.

Note: This property can be booked with Ref. 914882, together they sleep 10.
