One, if not the, best cottage we have stayed in. Clean, comfortable, well equipped, with fantastic views to the sea through floor to ceiling windows. Watching the regular movement of the cows to and from the dairy was a daily delight. Lots of good walks in the area, especially along the Pembrokeshire coastal path, and some fantastic sandy beaches.

As other reviews have said this is a working dairy farm so sitting outside in the garden was not really an option. Apart from this aspect we loved the location, about a 15 minute walk across the fields to Trefin which has a first rate cafe, and access to the coast path. The local Spa shop and petrol station also very handy, no need to drive furtherRead more for supplies. Hide

Lovely, modern barn in a superb location. Stunning view. Great garden. Barn is on a working (but pretty quiet) dairy farm so if you want privacy and seclusion this is not for you but if you don't mind a bit of coming and going to watch or your kids love cows then this place is fab and still very quiet and in the countryside.
