A pleasant stay in a pleasant location.

Excellent detailed instructions on how to find the property. Homely cottage adequately equipped for an O.A.P., his wife and 20 year old son. Excellent base for exploring the Pembrokeshire coast.

Cute cottage, lots of character

  • 3 of 5

Sadly a little damp, so the whole property smells, even the bedding. They have tried to mask the smell with airfresheners, an abundance of them. They are either oblivious to the problem or choose to do nothing.

Sometimes you can put up with a damp smell for a week, but somehow the bedding smelt too. Perhaps they'd cleaned the bedding, then left them in the house or cupboard and they soaked in the damp smell.

The only way we overcome the smell was to leave the windows open. Which is fine in the summer. Pity anyone arriving out of the warmer weather.

As the rental was cheap, it was a problem we accepted.

... That said the location is terrific ... and it looks like hundreds before over the years (via the visitors book) have loved the cottage, but in 2017 it needs some TLC.

Owner's Response: Very disappointed that this guest thought the cottage smelt of damp, this was almost certainly due to the previous occupants not opening the windows thus you get a lot of condensation which takes a little time to disperse. this is common in old stone cottages. It may be that this guest has never stayed in an old cottage before. As for the bedding it is never ever stored in the property and is changed between guests so the bedding could not have smelt of damp. When asked if happy with property when in residence he said all was ok. As he himself points out in his review, there are hundreds of positive reviews of the cottage which is booked virtually 12 months of the year, and we have many many repeat bookings year after year. Just to clarify, the reviews saying how much they have loved the cottage have continued right up to and including many in 2017. We would like future prospective guests to please read all the reviews on the cottage and make a judgement on all the reviews not just this one as we think this review is unfair considering the age of the cottage.

Lovely cottage near Pembrokeshire coast path

  • 4 of 5

Lovely cottage, very clean and well equipped and cosy when Storm Angus came in! When the sun shone it was easy distance from the sea and beautiful scenery this coast has to offer. Adrian and his wife are lovely and couldn't be more accommodating and helpful. We had a lovely long weekend here and would recommend it to anyone

Sun, seals and seashells

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at the beginning of of October. Cottage was comfortable, well equipped and spotless. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay and my dog seemed to be having a good time as well! The cottage is well located in the middle of the village but 5 minutes from the Pembrokeshire Coastal Path. Seals in many of the coves watching over their pups and inspiring scenery. Fantastic holiday. I cannot recommend the cottage and the area enough.

Quaintly old fashioned but has everything you need in a lovely setting.

  • 4 of 5

Some confusion about parking which the owner resolved quickly (it is in front of the adjoining house which belongs to the owner and is called Herston house). The village of Trefin (pronounced Treveen) is lovely with a good pub serving excellent food, a coffee shop which does breakfast and packed lunches and easy access to the coastal path. There is a small rocky beach for fishing, a ruined mill and a field with standing stones which make good subjects for photography. The whole area is delightful but we would have benefited from an ordinance survey map and, of course, the weather was glorious. The cottage is next to Herston house. It was very clean with a nice rear garden and had everything we needed. We thoroughly enjoyed the week and will be back.
