  • "Book this family sized home and you will not be disappointed."

    We were met by Jackie on arrival who gave us a detailed tour of the property and made us feel very welcome. Our experience of Crossways Cottage was that it is beautifully decorated and furnished to a high standard and fully equipped with all you need to make your stay comfortable. It is ideally situated to enable you to explore Pembrokeshire and West Wales or just to enjoy the tranquil garden and wildlife pond in its countryside setting. We enjoyed the indoor games room, which is an added bonus should the weather turn to rain. We would highly recommend this property and can not wait to stay again in the future. Thank you, Jackie and Chris.

    Thank you Julie for your lovely feedback. We are delighted that you had such a great stay and enjoyed your week in the cottage, despite the wet weather....the games room is fun, especially the table tennis. You are a lovely family and we look forward to seeing you again in the future....kind regards, Jackie and Chris Property Owner

  • "I can’t recommend Crossways Cottage enough, Jackie the owner was there to welcome us and provide a quick tour of the house, garden and surrounding paddocks."

    This was a lovely property in a beautiful tranquil setting. There was a large enclosed garden and an adjacent paddock where our two dogs could run. We were fortunate that the weather was great for the majority of our stay and we enjoyed the garden in the early evenings, we made ourselves comfortable on the garden furniture with a glass of wine to enjoy the sunsets whilst our dogs could happily play in safety. The house itself was large and comfortable, we had our pick of bedrooms. The living room has a couple of comfy sofas on which we could settle in the evenings and watch a couple of movies on the large TV. The dining kitchen was well equipped with everything you need. The utility room was handy, we could soak and dry dog harnesses and do a little laundry too. The house is well situated, we got a supermarket delivery timed for when we arrived and there are a couple of takeaways which happily delivered. You’re also only 15-30 minutes away from dozens of interesting destinations, if you have dogs we can thoroughly recommend Freshwater East. It’s dog friendly, easy parking and easy access to the beach. We also enjoyed Tenby and Saundersfoot too.

    Thank you for the lovely review, so happy that you had a wonderful time. Apologies for the late reply. Pembrokeshire is a beautiful place to visit, and like you found, lovely beaches a short distance away. Hope to see you again....kind regards, Jackie and Chris. Property Owner

    We have great memories of our stay. Great location as well with loads to do for the kids only a short distance away. You have to stay here to really appreciate it, it looks great on the pictures but its even better in real life. The garden was secure for pets too. It was an amazing place and we would definitely go back.

    Thank you Paul and family for your kind comments, very much appreciated..we are so happy that you had a great week. .You were amazing guests, such a lovely family...and left our cottage in an immaculate condition which we were very grateful for. Look forward to seeing you all again....Jackie and Chris. Property Owner

  • "The owners go above and beyond to welcome you to their beautiful holiday cottage."

    We had a wonderful family holiday, 3 generations of us all really enjoyed our stay. The property is extremely comfortable and well equipped. Spotlessly clean with stylish but cosy decor. The garden though is out of this world. We so loved the evenings in the play room or sat out watching the sunset and no light pollution means stargazing is a must! Location-wise, it's brilliant for visits to Tenby, Saundersfoot, Carew Castle, and Barafundle Bay.

    Thank you very much Alison for your lovely means so much to us, as this is our first year of letting the cottage out. We really are delighted that you all had a wonderful time and hope to see you all again. Kind regards, Jackie and Chris. Property Owner

  • "A wonderful stay in a gorgeous cottage, the perfect relaxing break in a superb location."

    The house and gardens are beautifully maintained, the games room was a welcome addition for our teenagers. Lots of amazing wildlife around the cottage and a short walk to the village pub, shop and Carew Castle. Many stunning destinations are within easy reach and the owners are incredibly welcoming. We hope to return in the future.

    Thank you so much for the wonderful comments. We are absolutely delighted that you had such a lovely stay - especially as you were our very first guests! We'd be delighted to welcome you again next year - should you return to sunny Pembrokeshire.... Best wishes to you all - a lovely family. Property Owner

Be welcomed into this delightful abode by picturesque gardens and countryside views, entering into a contemporary kitchen/diner housing a whole host of amenities ideal for cooking up a storm, which can be enjoyed at the dining table.

When the evening wears on, snuggle up in the sitting room and catch up on your favourite TV shows beside the woodburning stove (Only available in Autumn/Winter) and beautiful bare-stone features.

The garden space for this property is simply dreamy, beginning outside the property where there is a patio and fire pit, great for enjoying a tipple in an evening as you reflect on the day, and morning coffee can be had beside a wonderful wildlife pond, adding to the charming rural vibes of this property.

Cresselly is a small rural location close to which you can find a pub, the Cresselly Arms, and a river, beside which rests the National Trust’s Cleddau Woodlands, an ideal spot to birdwatch and walk through the scenery.

To stock up on essentials head to the local village shop or indulge with some traditional fish and chips or a takeaway with plenty to choose from nearby.

From here, visit the incredible coast of Pembrokeshire, choosing between many beaches, for example Freshwater East, Manorbier, Barafundle Bay, and Bosherston Lily Ponds, all ideal for walks in the salty air, wild swimming, and watersports.

Visit the coastal town of Tenby where you can play a round at the golf course or relax at one of three lovely beaches or spend a day at Pembroke, the birthplace of Henry VII, where there is another fascinating castle, as well as many independent shops to browse at your leisure, or enjoy an action-packed afternoon at Heatherton World of Activities, where you can try your hand at archery, crazy golf, tree topstrail, and go karting.
