Lovely to look at but totally impractical in the somewhat colder weather (late March). The two storage heaters and one elec wall heater (non storage, in lounge) plus whatever one pays for the hot water (fixed on a timer I guess) cost us £37 in electricity for the week - and we were still cold all the time despite the woodburning stove being lit afternoons and evenings. Only practical as a summer holiday let because of this. I wouldn't go to a cottage where heating isn't included in the price again.
Nicely decorated etc but needs more cutlery (2 dessert spoons and two tablespoons, oddly) and mugs. Better quality frying pan would be welcome too.
Cooker very old fashioned electric hot plates - take ages to heat up and lack controllability.
Wi fi signal was so poor we used our phones (only got phone signal upstairs) for internet use to our laptops.
Jacuzzi bath totally impractical with a flimsy curtain - the jets sent water all over the floor so only used it once (then mopped up).
Couldn't make the tumble drier work despite instruction book.
There were no matches for the woodburner, and given the cottage is miles from a shop, this was not a good start upon arrival. Fortunately found an old cig lighter in the car!
Bed very comfortable. Nice decor, curtains etc in bedroom.
Gym was an unusual feature - very good idea!
Difficult to find from instructions given - just as well the farm was named on the OS map which we fortunately had with us.

We rented this cottage for a week and found it to be just what we needed - quiet, relaxed, and finished to a high standard. There is plenty to see and do in the area, with the Pembrokeshire coastal path and Picton Castle being of particular note. We tended to go out and about during the day then come back to the cottage during daylight hours (the roads can be a little scary!) to relax for the evening. A car is essential. The cottage had pretty much everything we needed (scissors would have been helpful), and despite not really needing it for heat, the log stove was lovely. The only thing we'd do differently if we visit again, would be to bring some DVDs.
