Having done a 20 mile hike the Old Smithy was a tonic and just what I needed. Very welcoming, a lovely dinner and super comfortable bed for the night. Wonderful location for walking, and was happy to accommodate me traveling solo.

Amazing house, amazing hosts. Thank you very much for a lovely stay in a beautiful location. The house is a place to explore, full of interesting items, books. As they say its eclectic. The nature around it is beautiful. Just a few minutes of drive from Pembroke Castle. Katya and Elnar

I just returned from a walking tour in Wales and I can only recommend the Old Smithy for your stay. The owners are extremely welcoming and friendly, the meals were excellent and the room very cosy. I also enjoyed reading in the beautiful garden. Thank you again Ian and Pauline! Stella
