About Barry and Christine Skidmore

Barry and Christine moved to Pembrokeshire in 2000 with their 2 children and 2 cats. They found their perfect home, surrounded by beautiful rural countryside, yet near all beaches and areas of Pembrokeshire. They settled at once and decided to transform the cottage next door from a very basic dwelling, into a cottage for their families and friends to stay in when visiting. Everyone was so enthusiastic about it, that they were encouraged to further upgrade it into a superb 4 star holiday cottage, so that tourists can stay and discover this beautiful part of Wales. From the wonderful comments left by the guests in the visitors book, they made the right choice and welcome all holiday makers, their families and dogs.

Barry and Christine Skidmore purchased this cottage in 2000

This cottage is superbly appointed and wants for nothing. Situated in a very quiet lane with plenty of walks if you have a dog. Loads of games, DVD's and books if you have Children. Very cosy and immaculate. Exceptional welcome pack from very thoughtful owners.

Great position for exploring all of pembtokeshire.

We had a lovely stay and would thoroughly recommend it.

One of the very best places we’ve ever stayed at

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I, with our 7-year-old autistic son have just returned from a wonderful week’s holiday here. The cottage was spotlessly clean and had everything we could possibly need. We were very warmly welcomed by Barry and Christine, who are the nicest of couples, and their welcome tray of goodies was a lovely surprise, as were the numerous leaflets of places to visit and recommended takeaways, restaurants and pubs. The cottage is down a very quiet lane, but it’s not far from towns, countryside and many glorious beaches. Our son loved the cottage and his bedroom, and we were all very sad when it was time to leave, but we’ve got such fantastic memories of our first visit to Pembrokeshire. We will be back to this tranquil cottage, as there’s so much to explore around here. We have no hesitation in awarding it five stars, and thoroughly recommend it as a great holiday home.

This attractive cottage is extremely comfortable as well as being beautifully clean and very well appointed. It's well placed being near to and within easy reach of many places of interest in Pembrokeshire. But at the same time it's set in such a tranquil, peaceful, rural setting. I have stayed here several times previously and I must say that it is a favourite place to visit. It never disappoints. The owners are always so helpful and friendly, but at the same time they never intrude. I really cannot speak highly enough of this absolute gem.
