We have had a wonderful time here, we found this house really cosy and comfortable. We have had lots of fun walking down to the local beaches and exploring this area. Our favorite place to eat was The Sloop in Porthgain, we can't wait to return!!

Colin & Kate Telford

Great wee cottages in lovely wee village, great base for days out and about. Been up and down the coast from Miford Haven to St Davids stopping at all the little villages then from St Davids to Fishguard. Newport on another day, dogs loved the beaches and plenty of walks on the door step. Porthgain is worth a look, lovely pub there and the Blue Lagoon and Abereiddy. Llys Y Fran reservoir, you can walk around it, popped into the local for a drink, very nice tea room as well. Pembroke Castle and area worth a visit also.

John, Anne and Sean Rodgers

We were delighted when we entered the cottage. You can't always judge from a brochure - it's often serendipity. It's a lovely place to stay in. We particularly like the contemporary character. We like Mathry too and the pub and tea rooms are a real bonus. We normally stay in very isolated cottages but we've decided we prefer to stay in a civilised settlement. We'll be back very soon, we've family in the area and this location is perfect. Tip for future guests - porpoise watching at Strumble Head! Apparently the biggest colony of porpoises in Europe.

Mark & Sara Cleaver

We arrived in the rain and are leaving in the rain but we have had a lovely sunny week. A but windy on occasions. We have not managed to do everything so will have to come back later in the year. We have had some lovely walks, a lovely boat trip around Ramsey island and visited Marloes sands and St Brides. Thank you for a lovely stay in your lovely home.

Claire, Peter, Asha & Alec

We have had a lovely visit- wish it could have been longer. The Farmers Arms does lovely food and welcomes dogs. Also we were fortunate enough to have lunch Al Fresco at The Shed in Porthgain. Really lovely cottage, good location would most certainly come here again. The woofs loved the walk to Abermawr, Footpath starts almost at the end of the garden. Thank you

Degwyn Thomas

Had a very relaxing stay, lovely food in the Farmers Arms. Log burner was nice and warm, lovely little village.

Vanessa & Mike Aldridge

We've had a fabulous few days, cottage ticks all the boxes, everything we've needed and the weather has been sunny all week. Enjoying the views, walks and returning back to a cosy cottage, loved every minute. Will return, Thank you very much.

Kevin & Diane

We've had a lovely few days here. The weather has been very cold, but mainly dry so able to get out and about. Meals at the Farmers Arms have been excellent would certainly recommend this cottage and consider coming back again.

Caroline & Paul

We arrived in such awful weather, you couldn't see the hills or the sea - but then what a wonderful week, sunshine everyday, great walking weather. We have enjoyed the cottage, coming back to a lovely fire and cozy room. We enjoyed visits and meals at the farmers arms but also cooking in a well equipped kitchen. Many Thanks

John and Susan Roberts

Cottage comfortable and clean. Weather mixed but strong winds. Would recommend the Wolf Inn and Wolfscastle. Good food and dog friendly, Farmers Arms dog friendly and staff pleasant. Plenty of little bays and areas to explore. St David's is a lovely little place but not a lot of parking.

Mr & Mrs Mitchard

Comfortable and well equipped cottage. We loved the views which unfortunately disappeared for much of our stay when the rain set in. Fantastic Coastal walk on Sunday from Porthgain to Abereiddy returning to the sloop for lunch.

Karen, Nathan, Ffion,

Returned to this cottage for the second time after visiting back in March 2012. Fabulous as previous! Fantastically equipped even to cook Christmas dinner!! Farmers Arms - Once again was welcoming and a perfect welcome would definitely return for a third time, see you soon !

Jayne + David

A lovely cottage and well equipped. Had a lovely day out in Tenby, Fishguard + St Davids.

Steve + Caroline

A lovely relaxing long weekend. A lovely cottage with great views. A good welcome at the Farmers arms and good food.

Mr & Mrs Nix

We've been coming to Wales for 7 years now and this is the nicest cottage. Local beaches not big enough for our dogs but we found Newport Sands which was lovely, they had a good run. The Iron Age Fort at Castell Henllys is really interesting, well worth a visit. Had a day in Tenby (about 1 hour away) 30 years since we went there on our honeymoon.

Sue Fitzmaurice & Pat Woodward

Excellent accomodation - very pleased with everything. Weather variable but didnt prevent us getting out and about. Particularly enjoyed the beach at Broad Haven, first time the dogs have ever been to the seaside and they loved it! Also enjoyed Scolton Manor and grounds. Farmers Arms does very good meals and can recommend 'Somethings Cooking' in Letterston for fish and chips.

Bradley Family

Great place to stay, would come back, enjoyed The Farmers Arms, local beaches, kayaking with Mike Mayberry suitable for all. Also pony trekking with Twiggy at Llanwda suitable for all.

Taylors Family

We had a lovely week. The house was very comfortable with beautiful views. We enjoyed exploring all the local beaches. The weather was kind. Delicious fish and chips at Porthgain and drinks at The Sloop. Watching the Wizard of Oz at the village hall was a bonus!

Gentles Family

The house was very nice and we loved the kitchen. Thanks

Staves Family

Excellent cottage, really enjoyed dog friendly local beaches and pubs.

Whitton & Davies Families

Beautiful weather, lovely walks - we enjoyed the sea, food and absolutely everything - very happy with our accomodation. Good meals at Famers Arms.

Romans Family

Lovely cottage, perfect location. Really enjoyed the views, friendly village.

Jean Holden & Beth Howarth

Lovely refurbished bathroom and kitchen, in spite of variable weather, the coast and wild flowers well up to standard. Lovely holiday.

Mr & Mrs Hurley
