A very comfortable two week stay in this lovely, homely, old-worldy cottage. Immaculately clean, "Herston Cottage" is well equipped and had everything I needed; plenty of cupboard space in the kitchen, comfortable lounge, a good supply of DVDs, books, tourist information/maps to help plan the holiday and a very helpful and obliging owner right next door. The paved/part gravelled garden is well maintained and it was very pleasant to sit out in the sunshine reading. Always a good indication of a cottage is the visitors book and I noted several visitors return every year and have done for a very long time. Although staying in this cottage during March, there are plenty of efficient heaters and electric blankets on the beds so kept very snug and warm. Only a few minutes away to the coastal path, The Mill (great food, excellent service) and The Ship. A little further to the Aberfelin Cove which is great for dogs. Also close to the "main drag" - A487 - which is the quickest way to St David's or to Fishguard, Newport, Cardigan and beyond or to Haverfordwest for more supermarket choice. "Herston Cottage" is ideally located, in the very quiet and peaceful village of Trefin. Hope to return for another therapeutic stay! Thanks Adrian!

Our stay in Jan

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I had a great stay here at the end of Jan, we stayed for three nights. We were met By Adrian who was very friendly and he showed us around the property, he even said that because there were no bookings immediately after us we could stay a couple more nights free of charge, unfortunately we couldn't take him up on the his generous offer.

The cottage was as described and I concur with previous reviews that it was a comfortable, cosy cottage from a bygone era, it was fully functional and had everything needed for a short or long stay. It is fair to say it is dated but if it was fully modernised you would expect to pay at least twice the price as per other cottages in the area and not the £30 per night which I did pay.

The cottage is in a great location with easy access to the coastal path and St Davids. It was a bonus to find a real pub in the village 2 mins walk from the cottage.

We would definately return.

The area the cottage is in is beautiful. Great location for access to great beaches. The owner was very friendly and helpful. Unfortunately the cottage is old, and in need of modernisation. In particular it needs insulating properly and central heating fitted. We had a winter holiday and the house was cold and damp, and smelt musty, which is not good when you have a health condition like asthma. We had to keep the house warm and that cost us £50. The other thing we were not aware of was the split level flooring between thd lounge and kitchen 3 steps down. We were not made aware of this and I almost fell twice. It would have been nice to have some grass in the rear garden. The internet signal needs a booster so that it can be used in the whole house. Dog friendly 😊? which was good.

Owner's Response: Firstly very sorry our guests thought the cottage was cold damp and musty on arrival, the cottage was unoccupied from early Dec until our guests' arrival date, also there were several weeks of rain and colder than normal temperatures preceding and during the christmas period, (not the best weather for asthma sufferers). Please note that the preceding guests who stayed in early Dec had a very different opinion of the cottage even though the weather conditions were similar (Please read review 25 Nov - 2 Dec "5" stars ) and are returning again (as many guests do) later this year. Next to clarify some of the other points in the review. The cottage has thick stone walls (with injected damp proof course) ,cavity wall insulation, and roof insulation. the steps from the lounge are clearly mentioned in the cottage notes on the website and there are 2 steps about 6ins high (not 3 as stated above) which are very easy to walk up/down; they have never once been mentioned as a problem by any of our previous guests. The £50 electricity cost (highest ever 7 day usage by anyone) was for all electricity used ie cooker, shower, hot water etc. not just the heating. This is well above the average winter usage of £20 - £30 while the summer average is £5 - £15. As for grass in the garden, there is a patio area instead with flower beds (please see photo). Lastly, we hope potential guests would please read all our reviews, and take into account that this review contains more critical comments than we have received in total through all the 25 years we have been letting the cottage, that's including the hundreds of entries in the three visitors books kept in the cottage.

This was a great place to stay for a last minute break at the end of November. We were already familiar with Trefin which we love and wanted somewhere cosy and comfortable in case of bad weather. We were not disappointed. The cottage was a perfect choice, well located near the coastal path, lovely upmarket cafe and village pub just minutes away by foot. Inside, the property is furnished in traditional style reminiscent of the 1950/60s and is very well equipped. The wifi and tv reception is great. There are heaps of informative leaflets, maps and guides, dvds, even some classical cds! Parking is allocated next to the cottage and there is a fair size garden at the rear. The owner is friendly and helpful. The weather was not kind so even more appreciative of the cottage where we slept like logs. Hope to return next year
