Lovely cottage in a great location to visit Pembrokeshire. Some of the issues raised at onset of holiday were dealt with promptly, some of the other issues remain to be actioned. The owner is not onsite & therefore relies on a cleaning company to clean & prepare for visitors, this needs a complete review as this was inadequate in relation to cleanlRead moreiness of kitchen, appliances & the flooring throughout.

Very spacious, clean and comfortable holiday home, excellent position in the village. Really good facilities, one or two bits lacking or need replacing such as wine glasses and tea towels but hopefully these will be addressed and didn't distract from our enjoyments.

On the description it says there is a pub in walking distance there is but it is closed . That was a big disappointment for us as we booked it because of that fact .

Lovely location and a spacious property .Needs some updating and tlc. It is well placed for access to the coast and Milford sound.

Overall we loved the cottage, only 8 of us so we were comfortable. The location is great. We had a very good week and were lucky with the weather. Lots of walking and beach visits. Boat trip around Skomer was brilliant. The house needs a washer drier and not just the washing machine and the kitchen utensils were ok but could do with some extras. KiRead moretchen itself was lovely and nice utility room. Overall very pleased and happy. Hide
