“Welcoming and relaxing”
Reviewed October 6, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Lovely welcome with home-made cake, milk and flowers. Cottage was well equipped and cosy with log burning stove, which we had no need for, because we had a cloudless and sunny week!

“Excellent cottage for walks in the countryside.”
Reviewed September 27, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

We arrived at the cottage in the evening and were welcomed by a lovely sponge cake, milk in the fridge and flowers. The cottage was spotlessly clean, well equipped and nicely furnished. Our friends joined us the next morning. We had a very nice holiday exploring St David's Cathedral and the town. The supermarket was easy to find in New Street (open long hours!) and it was right next to the Catholic Church where we went to Mass at 9 on Sunday morning. (Unfortunately the priest was very uninspiring. Maybe he wasn't well.) Evensong in the Cathedral at 6.30 made up for the disappointing service with beautiful singing, thoughtful sermon and lovely surroundings.
We had a very good meal in The Bishop pub on two occasions. We explored the surrounding countryside and the coast walk as far as it was possible on my buggy, but it is possible to borrow large all terrain buggies from places advertised in the local magazine.

“Fab Cottage”
Reviewed October 10, 2014 for a stay in October 2014
1
person found this review helpful

Stayed here for 4 nights in October and it was lovely. With a gorgeous homemade cake waiting on arrival in a beautifully converted barn, I would definitely recommend this to anyone.
The cottage is surrounded by fields which means it is lovely and tranquil and fab for our excitable springer but is only a very short drive from St. David's and other fishing villages so there is always plenty to do.

“Brilliant holiday in 5 star accommodation!”
Reviewed August 9, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

person found this review helpful

Ysgubor is in remote countryside a couple of minutes drive from St Davids. The converted barn is next to the owners' home and 3 other holiday cottages. the area is very quiet and peaceful or at least it was until we arrived, (family with children aged 5 and 7).

The cottage is very well equipped and there was nothing that we found to be lacking. The children had a twin room on the ground floor with a wet room and the double bedroom is on the first floor with an en-suite shower room. The kitchen and living room are open plan and a good size. It was useful to have a washing machine and full size freezer which I always find useful when self-catering as a family unit. The cottage was very clean and the beds were comfortable.

Also on the site is a games barn which the children spent hours in. It has a full size trampoline, snooker table, table football and other smaller games. I don't think enough is made of this facility on the website! It was a massive advantage to us as it meant the children could play safely and without being too far away.

Rob and Honey are excellent hosts and made us feel very welcome and were interested to hear where we had been or suggest places for us to visit. Meg the dog became a good friend too although I think she takes a shine to anyone who will play ball with her!

The cottage is situated within 10 minutes drive of several beaches. There are plenty of attractions under an hour away including Folly Farm, Oakwood theme park and various parks and museums.

We found plenty to occupy us for 2 weeks and would happily have stayed longer.

Would I recommend this place - absolutely!

“Fab first holiday”
Reviewed April 29, 2014 for a stay in April 2014

This was our first holiday as a family. My husband my son and I had an amazing time.
Honey and Rob were so lovely and friendly and the cottage was more then we could hope for.
The decor in the cottage was lovely and it had everything we needed to be able to have an enjoyable holiday with a little one.
We got out and managed a lovely walk along the coastal path and had a few trips out to local towns.
Really really can't recommend this cottage highly enough.
Ohh and thank you again for the amazing cake and fresh eggs on arrival :)
