                                                            • The front door opens into a sitting-room with a wood-stove. There is a back garden where you can enjoy views of the river and also a small grassy area at the front of the house for enjoying breakfast for example. There are steep, uneven steps and unfenced-off drops in the back garden so not suitable for small children. Wooden stairs lead up from the living room to the next floor. The cottage is reached via a short, steep footpath. The house has central heating throughout. March 2017 note: Please note that reviews date from prior to major refurbishment - cottage has been unavailable to rent from 2014-2017.

                                                              Cute cottage in lovely village

                                                              Yvette F.

                                                              St Dogmael village is a wonderful place, small but great facilities, a good local shop, 3 pubs and a lovely coffee/gift shop at the Abbey. Poppet sands is close by and Mwyn beach (National Trust) the other side of the estuary is lovely as is Newport. Arrival at the cottage is via a very steep path, we got used to it but its a bit of a challenge with luggage. The views from the front garden and the terrace at the back are lovely. The cottage had everything we needed and it was lovely to have some tea/coffee/salts/peppers etc left for us, Similarly there was washing up liquid, a dishwasher tab or two to see us over arrival day would have been helpful, but we got these in the local shop the next day. The beds are super comfortable, the shower over the bath was fine but we couldn't find anything to open the bathroom skylight, which we'd have liked to do. Unfortunately the cottage does suffer from being built into the hill side and the wet August meant there was damp on the rear sitting room wall, we ran the dehumidifier to counter this and bought a scented candle, which helped. Overall we loved our time here, the village and the surrounding area are great and well worth a staycation.

                                                              Quirky cottage with great views

                                                              We stayed in this cottage in July with our teenage son,for which the wi-fi was welcomed! It is well equipped and spacious enough for 4 and the back terraced garden was lovely,with amazing views over the estuary towards Cardigan. There is a little grassy area to the front with table and chairs aswell. Situated near to the Abbey it is convenient for shops and pubs that all serve great food.A short distance to Poppit Sands and the coast path.There is a great bike trail to the Wildlife centre and further to Cilgerran from Cardigan and numerous walks. Our favourite was at Moylegrove to the witches cauldron and back.

                                                              There was no designated parking but we didn't find this a problem as we unloaded at the bottom of the path and then parked at the free car park next to the school,a minutes walk away.As the cottage is built into the rock the living room can feel a bit cold sometimes but we just popped the heating on for a bit and it soon felt cosy.

                                                              A lovely stay with lots to do and see in the area

                                                              Beautiful cottage lovely setting

                                                              Ruth T.

                                                              The cottage is an ideal base for visiting South West Wales. We spent a day in St Davids and another on the narrow gauge railway in Aberystwth and more local visits to Cardigan and Poppit Sands. The Tuesday market in St Dogmael is also worth going to for local produce. The only downside to the cottage is the short steep pathway to the terrace-pack light!

                                                              lovely cottage in a great location

                                                              I enjoyed 3 nights here withy my husband and 2 teenage children. The cottage is comfortable and well stocked with everything necessary for a holiday. It is in a beautiful setting with fantastic views but the location is also practical with a 'corner shop' and other amenities close by. Has good access to all the surrounding beaches and attractions. The 2 garden areas, 1 at the front of the house and the other at roof level are really lovely. There is no designated parking immediately outside the cottage but we found it easy to park on the road a couple of minutes walk up a steep but short path up to the house.
