“Excellent !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2013

Got to the site on a very sunny Sunday after only booking at short notice and while putting up the tent was greeted by Caroline . This was our second visit to the same camp site and despite the adverse weather conditions for most of the week we once again thoroughly enjoyed our stay . The available facilities were of a high standard , well maintained and easily accessible. This is a very peaceful site and only a short distance from the village of Saundersfoot so if its peace and quiet you want , look no further . Wonderful place and will definitely be going back next year .

We have stayed both in the cottage and in a static caravan several times now, and have had a wonderful time. Very relaxing, quiet and an ideal spot for exploring pembrokeshire. We always take our two dogs with us and we love the informalitiy, tiled floors and garden. (brill for the dogs)

me and my family have been to this park three times and find it to be a quiet park with easy access to saundersfoot by car or walking ,i took my 2 dogs with alot of walking areas so its ideal for us the caravan we stayed in wash top of the range with plenty of room for six adults and two german shepard dogs . this park is ideal for those people who want a quiet peaceful holiday.

Thank you so much for your feedback on our Park, we are known to be a quiet get away where you can relax and enjoy the country feel of the Park, yet only ten minutes walk from the lovely sandy beach of Saundersfoot, we hope to see you again next year when you want to 'chill!'

The two of us plus two Springer spaniels spent a superb week at Courtlands Cottage at the beginning of October 2012. We were met on arrival at reception by Caroline who walked us through the park to the cottage. The cottage was clean, warm and very comfortable and access to the garden and large field at the back was greatly appreciated by the two spaniels. The new? bathroom on the ground floor was really nice and the one bedroom that we used upstairs was beautifully furnished and decorated. The large kitchen/diner is well kitted out - the only thing we missed was a toaster - but the grill worked fine. The cottage is very well situated for the Pembrokeshire coastline and we had splendid days in Saundersfoot, Wisemans Bridge, Tenby, Amroth, Pendine, and St Davids. We also had plenty of long walks with the dogs and pub lunches along the way. Sure there are some outbuildings and a store-caravan adjacent to the cottage and also a few chickens but we are in the country after all and this only adds to the attraction for us. We would certainly return to this delightful cottage again. Thanks.

We stayed at Courtlands Cottage which is tucked away at the back of Bonvilles Caravan Park. On arrival we were met by the owner who was very chatty and welcoming and who walked me up to the cottage. As we got there a man (Dave, I believe) was just leaving the cottage and explained one of the light bulbs in kitchen needed replacing & would come back to do (this never happenend but not the end of the world). On first inspection it soon became apparent that the cottage is suffering from damp issues. The downstairs bedroom had rising damp (that had been nicely painted over) and smelt very musty indeed. Also both upstairs bedrooms had the same problem but again had been nicely decorated over. This is not due to a couple of months of exceptionally high rainfall as we have been told by the cottage rental company!! The cottage was also positioned next to a dirty rundown caravan that you dont see in the photo, again didnt cause a problem but was just abit of an eyesore. The cottage has an 'unfinished' feel to it which would explain exposed hanging wires in the porch area hanging from the ceiling, not live we now know, but a horrifying sight when you have small children and nobody bothers to explain. A few niggles were bathroom fan not working, we did mention to owners who came to repair in the evening which wasnt ideal when children were in bed and also one chest of drawers in downstairs bedroom was damp/smelly & bottom fell out (this was on arrival day as we were unpacking) so we carried one from the upstairs bedroom to use and put the damp one in the shed on the request of the owners but it would have been nice to have received a replacement as we were now short on drawers.
These are all the negatives of the cottage, the positives are it has a nice roomy kitchen with a range and the living room was very comfortable. It is in a great location for Saundersfoot and on the whole the Caravan Site is ok with some lovely Static Caravans. As we were in the cottage we only used the Laundry facilities which were ok but again the laundrette was unfinished. Only one more gripe..apart from the day we arrived we never saw the reception open again for the 2 weeks we were there. If you needed anything you had to phone a mobile number that was stuck on the reception door.
Unfortunately we would not return.

Firstly I would like to say that Courtlands does not have a 'damp issue' especially rising damp in all three bedrooms, two of which are upstairs and at different sides of the cottage, they are nicely decorated and we are frequently complimented on our decor. The cottage was last painted November 2011 and I am sure if there was damp then this would have shown through by now. The cottage was inspected by the rental company after your visit and they agreed there was no smells in any of the bedrroms, and were very pleased with the cottage.
The caravan you refer to, is fenced off in the garden next door, and does not encrouch onto Courtlands. However, we have now washed and polished the caravan even though it is just used for storage.
We do not agree that the cottage has an unfinished feel about it, just because there was a socket waiting for a new thermostat for the bathroom underfloor heating, this has been replaced and working well, we had also mentioned to them about leaving the naked wires untaped despite being isolated at the main fuse box.
I have updated our webb site on the 'Testamonials' page with comments that have benn left in our comments book, before and after your stay.
You mentioned that you were visited in the evening to mend the bathroom fan, this was at your request, as you were given the option of leaving it until the next day but yo said it was fine.
The bottom of the drawers hadn't fallen out, it had been over packed, which pushed it off the runners. We took the drawers to re-inforce them, we asked would you like us to replace the chest of drawers, which would have been no problem, but again you said don't worry about it as you had taken the chest drawers from upstairs and that was enough. We didn't tell you to put the chest of drawers in the garage next door, and in doing so, you broke the bottom of the unit and therefore had to replace it.
I am confused by your comments that the laundry room was unfinished, we have had a new commercial washing machine fitted this year, the commercial tumble dryer works well, there is washing-up facilities and an iron and ironing board, the room also has double glazed door and windows.
As for not seeing me in the office, I was there when you arrived, again when you came to tell me about the unit, also your parents popped in to see me a couple of days later. Just because the door is closed, it doesn't mean I am not in the office, I saw you pass several times in your car. I explained to you on arrival that there is a member of staff on the park from 8.00am to 10.00pm during our busiest part of the season. We are always around and it doesn't take a lot to pick up the phone if you can't find anyone, we will always be with you within 2 minutes. Furthermore, if it wasn't for the fact that the cottage is at the edge of a Holiday Park, you wouldn't have any contact with anybody other than the rental company, who would be at the end of a phone call

I note a prior review which was rather scathing of the site. I'd like to counter this, My family of 5 (in a tent) and friends family of 3 in a caravan stayed on the exact same pitch earlier this year...

Whilst the weather was not with us and we encountered a really rather nasty couple of days of rain and storms we had a fabulous time.

The owners were wonderful, and being close to the house was not a problem at all, indeed our respective children got on fabulously and were roaming freely and safely throughout the site, the couples young lad bestowing the history of this lovely family run historic site to my own children, who were fascinated.

My children and all adults staying were sad to leave and considered even staying on. The site is so convenient for the local beaches for the day time and the owners are fabulously welcoming, and always stopped for a chat and a joke in the evening.

The pitch was wet when it was time to leave but that was't a problem either, we were towed off the pitch in high spirits by the owner with a 4X4 and purpose made tracks, meant we were off the pitch in no time and not leaving any damage.

Its always a shame when it rains, but our break was made all the more comfortable by the welcoming owners and their family,

This site has so much to offer, its location is wonderful, the facilities really clean and modern its safe, and exceptionally welcoming. It's the best stay of the year for my family and our friends and we'll certainly be heading back at the earliest time possible.

i can't recommend this site enough

Thank you so much for your positive feedback on our Park. It is much appreciated, and makes us want to carry on working hard at trying to please our holiday makers, unfortunately no matter how hard we try, unfortunately we cannot please everyone.
I do hope we see you all next year.
