“Comfortable Country Charm”
Reviewed 21 February 2016 for a stay in February 2016

Tilley's Cottage was everything you could have wished for and more. It was very clean and comfortable, extremely pet friendly with a secure garden and practical flooring for muddy paws and walking boots, And what a location, so close to some great walks both beaches and coastal paths (Ruth the owner was unobtrusive but friendly and knowledgeable about local walks and other places to visit) Thoughtful details like the welsh cakes and wine, a throw for the dogs and the fire made up were all much appreciated the bedrooms were very clean and comfortable the well designed storage was great as was the well equipped kitchen and basic store cupboard. The bathroom was stunning with a large powerful shower and bath that was irresistible for a soak after all that fresh air. If you are looking somewhere like this makes you want to come back as soon as you have left you won't find a better place.

“Great location”
Reviewed 31 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

This review is the same as all the others. Ruth is a lovely, friendly, helpful lady. She text me before arrival allowing us early access as the cottage was made ready the day before. On arrival at the property we found Tilly's Cottage to be warm and immaculately clean with lovely bed linen, clean carpets and a bottle of wine and welsh cakes too! The kitchen had all you would require, including hand soaps, tea towels etc. 20 mins walk from the cottage you will find The Sloop Inn where our family of 5 (children aged 16, 14 & 10) enjoyed the atmosphere and the meals. The great thing about Tilly's Cottage is the location for walking the wonderful, striking, coastal path . We were lucky to see many seals and their pups and my youngest in particular enjoyed looking for crabs. There are many lovely beaches, some of which can only be accessed on foot. Mostly, tractors are the main vehicle to pass the cottage and as the photos show, you can see the sea. Our children really loved the cottage, as we did and would not hesitate to return. Pembrokeshire is a favourite of ours, this being our 3rd visit although the first to Tilly's. Thank you Ruth.

“Perfect getaway”
Reviewed 28 April 2015 for a stay in March 2015

What a lovely place to stay, exactly as described. Thoroughly enjoyed eating breakfast with views over the fields to the sea! The bedrooms are a decent size with a good amount of wardrobe space, this cosy cottage is also equipped with the basics so you don’t need to take tea coffee sugar etc., which is a pain when self-catering. If you enjoy walking there are a number of routes in the information folder and if there is anything else you need the owners are next door and more than happy to help.

“Tilley's Cottage is a favourite already!”
Reviewed 17 November 2014 for a stay in November 2014

We arrived at Tilley's cottage after a long drive in the dark and rain, on arrival the cottage was cosy, warm, clean and the owner had left a bottle of wine and Welsh cakes for us (this was a lovely touch after a long drive, with no obvious shops near by - Thank you!).

What we loved about Tilley's cottage was how well laid out everything was, the logs for the fire, the welcome pack, the array of books in the bedroom, lounge and even above the doorways, board games, a lovely garden area, lovely views, perfect base to explore St David's (Churches/coffee shops/deli/butchers etc) and the National Trust areas.

Tilley's cottage is a place where our dog could enjoy and the sun was out all weekend too!

We hope to be back really soon to enjoy everything all over again!

Thank you! x

***What we seen, a shooting star, a baby Robin and seals!***

This cottage was fantastic. I booked it for my partner's birthday weekend for us and the kids. Its was perfect. The cottage itself has plenty of character alongside all the home comforts you could want. Warm, cozy and welcoming. Ruth was very helpful. We will be returning soon and for longer.
