“An amazing holiday”
Reviewed 3 May 2015 for a stay in April 2015

myself, husband and daughter plus two beagles have just come back from at week stay at this cottage and we good not praise it enough. It is well equipt with everything you need, it is spacious and clean, the owner Jan and Ieuan were very welcoming and the Welsh cakes were lovely. The views from the cottage were wounderful and we did some lovely walks around the area. There are also nice places to eat ( they did recommend the Roadhouse restarante ) which did not disappoint us, but we did eat in most nights to enjoy the cottage, there was loads of games to keep us entertained if we needed to and the log fire was lovely. We will definitely go back.

“Amazing spot. Great cottage. Lovely people.”
Reviewed 24 February 2015 for a stay in September 2014

We live in the area and booked the cottage to stay with friends, who were visiting from away, for a large party in the nearby village.

Our first impression was the amazing view northwest to the Preseli Hills. Even being local and familiar to the area, we were surprised at how perfect a location the cottage was in and what a beautiful panoramic vista was visible from this particular spot. On entering the cottage, we found it to be simply decorated in a modern rustic style with lots of wooden beams and floorboards with extensive decorative stonework and slate floors in the kitchen and bathrooms. It was spotless and fresh throughout. The facilities were of a high standard and it was fully equipped with everything we needed for our stay. The beds were very comfortable and the bathroom facilities were excellent. Our friends were pleased that they could bring their dog with them and the grounds had plenty of room for it to run around, chase balls and explore. Jan and Ieuan were perfect hosts, unobtrusive but easily accessible immediately across the road and friendly, approachable and very helpful with our requests, even providing some welcome cakes on arrival.

We would not hesitate to recommend this beautiful cottage to anybody wanting a quiet rural escape or a base to explore west Wales from.

“Fantastic Property Surrounded By Great Scenery”
Reviewed 16 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

My wife, young son and I had a fantastic time staying for five nights at this property.
The property itself is very nice and well maintained, clean and spacious. Its an ideal location if you have young children who wake up early as you can take walks around the lanes and see what animals they can spot.They can also run around the garden.
The owners are very friendly and accommodating.
Fantastic scenery all around and it's not far to drive to the coastal areas and visit the likes of Tenby, Llanstefan and so on as we did, if you have the need for shopping then Carmarthen is equally close.
Great property and location which we fully recommend.

“Truly excellent”
Reviewed 17 June 2014 for a stay in June 2014

Everything was perfect from the cottage, location and the view to die for. Even the weather was perfect with me getting the quickest tan ever. I think was due to the clear air, blue skies and a light breeze letting us sit out all day Jan was very welcoming, offering advice on local restaurants, shops and best beaches, there was homemade cakes to welcome us and local wine and milk tea and coffee to get us started. The conversion of the cottage from old farm buildings has been beautifully carried out and in keeping with the area. We spent a lovely day in Saundersfoot where the beach was great. The area is quiet, only tractors and other farm vehicles.
Everything you could need is provided, the garden looks over fields and is large enough to have a game of ball or even badminton (equipment again provided)
Would we go again, already checking our calendar for possible dates

“A perfect holiday home”
Reviewed 13 April 2014 for a stay in April 2014

Have just returned from a wonderful 4 night stay at Golygfa Preseli. This converted barn is situated in peaceful countryside with glorious views of the Preseli Mountains & is particularly well equipped & clean, we wanted for nothing. All on one floor with spacious rooms & a large garden making it ideal for young children & with underfloor heating we were perfectly warm even in April. Jan & her husband were more than welcoming, our grand children particularly enjoyed seeing the cows & the sheepdogs working the sheep. Jan had left us a tray of cakes too (loved the welsh cakes & Bara brith) & had even stowed away the shopping that we had pre-ordered from Tesco, thank you so much Jan. The drive to St Clears took about 15 mins so within easy reach of Laugharne, Pendine, Tenby etc although really, you would be quite happy just enjoying the local area. Definitely hope that we can return again, perhaps next time with more of the family, can't wait!
