We loved this cottage. Thanks for having us! All the walks are beautiful and all the locals are so friendly!
Thank you very much for letting us enjoy your cottage. The weather has been wonderful, so has been our time here! We have walked through the breathtaking St Davids coastline to Solva nearly every day! In the evening near the fireplace, we sat reading, drinking tea, talking and enjoying ourselves. St Davids maybe is the smallest city in the UK, but there are many things that you can do here. Our stay here has been unforgettable, thank you!
Simon has been coming to these parts for over 50 years, and we have stayed in many other properties in st Davids and all over Pembs. We come this week each year for the superb St Davids cathedral music festival and to walk, and we were not disappointed. Your property is charming and well equipped with a lovely garden.
Lovely Cottage, clean and comfortable, stay was very enjoyable, will definately come again! Thank you for a lovely stay!
