Just spent a wonderful week at Dyffryn Tawel. Having stayed in a few cottages in the area over the last few years this cottage is by far the best. It's location right on the edge of the river, with beautifully kept grounds is stunning. The cottage itself is extremely well equipped and furnished to a very high standard. A very cozy and welcoming cottage worthy of its five star rating. Jonathan the owner was on hand when we arrived and nothing was too much trouble. We will definitely return!

We stayed a week at this cottage in early July and it exceeded our expectations. Our main priority when booking a cottage, apart from a bit of luxury for us, is that it is completely dog friendly. Dyffren Tawel is certainly that. The beautiful garden, which was enclosed and made all the more special with the river, provided space and tranquillity for all. The towels, bedding, china, pots and pans etc were of a high standard and the beds were very comfortable. The furnishings, décor and artwork add to the cosiness of the cottage. The trail through the woods to see the Pilgrim's Cross and to Nevern to see the bleeding yew tree in the churchyard is a must, take suitable footwear. Good location for both the lovely beach at Newport Sands and for the amenities in Newport itself. Quite a few local pubs are dog friendly. Jonathan was there on our arrival and was friendly and helpful, he is approachable should you have any concerns during your stay. We will be back.

“Dyffryn Tawel - A tranquil springtime hideaway.”

person found this review helpful

We enjoyed our 2 weeks stay in this tranquil riverside setting, especially the wonderful birdsong from dawn 'til dusk and the beautiful spring flowers that abound in the garden and surrounding woodland.
The cottage was everything we hoped for - warm, cosy and comfortable with many luxurious touches provided by the friendly and charming owner - woodburner, WiFi, HiFi, Sky box, DVD player, surround sound system and large flat screen TV; fluffy towels, 'Eco' friendly toiletries and superb welcome pack to mention just a few. The kitchen was a pleasure to use with cooking range and modern appliances. The en-suite master bedroom was described by our 'guests' as being equal to a 5* hotel.
We walked for miles around Nevern, Newport, Camaes Head and St. David's. Watched dolphins at New Quay, stormy seas at Llangranog and discovered Mwnt. The coastal scenery is amazing and the remote cottage location by the river Nevern delightful. Children old and young would have great fun on Poppit Sands with its large free car park and nice cafe.
We have stayed in many holiday rental properties all over the UK for years and this one takes some beating, although the other two Experience Mor properties at this location are equally impressive (Jonathan, the owner, gave us a conducted tour of both). We hope to return and next time make use of the huge BBQ to eat alfresco by the river.

“Relaxing.”

I stayed at Dyffryn Tawel for 3 nights and 4 days. I have been to many lodges/cottages across northern England/wales and this is by far and away, the best one.

I booked this stay VERY last minute (around 20 hours before we arrived) and the owner, Jonathan got back to me within the first hour of my enquiring. He was very friendly and more than willing to stand and chat with us for as long as needed and answer any of our questions, very friendly chap, nothing is too much trouble. He told us this is one of 7 properties owned by "experience-môr" so we will be sure to check out the others for next time, but they will need to be extra special to beat this cottage!!

The cottage itself is set by a lovely river with beautiful gardens and decking. It has so many bedrooms and bathrooms, perfect for a romantic week or a week with the family. It is so peaceful there and was just what we both needed. 4 days of heaven away from the work emails/calls. This place is just stunning it really is. No expense has been spared on the interior too. Big TV and sky (with sky sports) with a good speed Wi-Fi also. The rooms are decorated excellently, especially the kitchen. It is huge!! Another nifty addition is the heated floor which really does help, even with the warm weather the past week has given us. Sitting outside on the decking at night was amazing, just sat watching the river go by only 10m away! Then when it got a little cold we lit the log burner (of which there is a plentiful supply of wood to burn). The cottage comes with things such as a few bottles of wine, some fruit, some eggs and milk. A really nice touch and not something I have seen before.

They are also very clearly keen on protecting the environment as they use Ecover products throughout the cottage.

Out and about, the cottage is in a great location in which to explore southern Wales. We had a drive over to Tenby which is around an hour away and the beach there is amazing. There are so many coves, beaches and walks along this part of Wales, it is literally impossible for me to list them all. The local village of Newport has some lovely shops, restaurants and pubs, all the best ones are listed in the extensive information pack that comes with the cottage.

Jonathan, thank you very much for our stay and we will be returning with my family as soon as we can!

Kris and Jen.

The previous reviewers have mentioned it all, whether it is the highest quality of the content and fittings, the wonderful setting, the gardens and river, the peace and quiet (with the exception of the local owl population), the welcome we received on arrival or the helpfulness of the owner and his staff. Everything worked - including plenty of hot water. The kitchen is seriously to die for. The four bedrooms worked well for us. And the bird-life.
As for the location, a delightful thirty minutes walk up river to the nearest pub and fifteen minutes drive to superb beaches and cliff top walks.
The owner has strong concerns about the environment which are reflected throughout the property.

“A little piece of 'haven'”

Our stay in this very comfortable warm and welcoming cottage in September 2014 lived up to all our expectations as advertised. The kitchen is amazing and so is the local butcher. The living room is spacious and very comfortable. The dining room can seat 10 and looks out onto the terrace where we enjoyed the complimentary wine (one of the many well thought out finishing touches). It is a tranquil location and totally secluded. The garden is immaculate and when the river runs you can see sea-trout and salmon as you walk along the path. We would recommend this cottage to anyone who wants a stress free holiday with or without the dog. It is hard to leave the cottage but when you do the area is one of the most beautiful you will ever see.

We have stayed at Dyffryn Tawel at Easter and in August as we couldn't stay away . The house is set in a peaceful wooded valley next to the river with beautiful grounds to sit, relax and enjoy the view. The cottage is like a home from home with everything you could wish for . The huge kitchen with seating area is ideal for a family with double doors to the sunken lounge with huge sofas , flat screen tv, DVD, hi- fi enough to keep the children happy ! The bit we love is the dinning area with double doors leading to the deck - we have many a happy evening sitting enjoying a glass of wine listening to the river flow by. The bedrooms are beautifully decorated with original art work - The beds are the most comfortable we have ever slept in - you will get a good nights sleep . You have the amenities of Newport a short drive away for all of your daily needs- good butchers shop and local Spa and baker. Newport sands beach and golf course are also only five minutes away . From the property you can walk the footpath to the pub in Nevern. We have stayed with 3 generations and the spaniel and we love it - keep this place a secret- once you have been you will not want to leave !!
