“Beautiful, new, clean and spacious beachhouse with fantastic views”
Reviewed 9 July 2017 for a stay in June 2017

Best beach house in Newgale, Wales, UK - was perfect for our wedding party rendezvous as it was central to our two venues, St. David's Cathedral, and Druidstone Inn. We were there end of June 2017. Five bedrooms, 3 full baths were perfect to accommodate us along with the large kitchen, dining room, three refrigerators, two freezers and spacious laundry room. I was able to cook and bake for a large group of people. The lounge was a perfect place for the ladies to get ready with their hair and makeup while overlooking the ocean. Within walking distance also was a cafe for breakfast and lunch and a pub to go out for drinks and dinner.

For those not familiar with Wales, the weather is unpredictable and most likely rainy, so be prepared (does not deter the locals who love to go into the ocean in their wetsuits and surf!) Central heat is available and we used it one day as it got very cold outside.

Suggestions for improvement for the owner would be to provide measuring cups and electric beaters for baking. The microwave oven is old and will start a fire if metal is in it.

“Great Stay”
Reviewed 11 October 2016 for a stay in October 2016

A group of four stayed at this property and were impressed by how clean and comfortable it was, a nice touch from the owners was leaving milk, tea and coffee for us on our arrival.

One of the bedrooms is up stairs and there are a couple of steps down into the kitchen which those with mobility problems should consider.

Bus from St Davids to Haverford West stops just a few meters away, other than this a car is needed to visit the area.

If the owners could widen the drive allowing cars to turn inside the property this would improve safety. The drive entrance is on a bend and a hill making it unsafe to reverse in or out.

Other than this great place and good value, lovely view from front of property.

“Great location”

Lovely property in fantastic position close to Newgale beach. The house is big enough for two families, the only downside being there are 4 double rooms and only 1 twin which did cause arguments amongst my 3 boys and my friends 2 girls about who would share a bed.
We had a great week weather wise but if things had been different it would have been hard to get everything dry so a tumble dryer would be good
It was a lovely property to holiday in though .
