“Heaven on earth”
Reviewed 27 July 2014 for a stay in June 2014

This was our second stay in Garth-y-don cottage, October 13 and June 14. The cottage has everything you would need for a lovely holiday and get away. Nigel an Judy are the perfect host with special treats on arrival, and the paper delivered on Sunday morning, nothing seems too much of a trouble. On our first visit we had our elderly mother, the downstairs bedroom and bathroom, was ideally equiped. The Garden is fully kitted out for family games and BBQ, with lovely views over the water. This cottage location is ideal for a quiet break away, but only a short drive away from Saundersfoot- which is a must visit beautiful beach with lots of parking, and only a short drive away to Temby and Narberth, which both have lovely cafés and eateries. We look forward to returning next year.

“An outstanding cottage with stunning views in an ideal location”
Reviewed 22 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

The Cottage was ideal for us (family of 4). The owners made us very welcome and have thought of everything - from kitchen gadgets, TV/DVD & stereo equipment, books & games to taking the trouble to fit a stair gate for our very mobile 1 year old. The cottage was immaculate, decorated with a lot of care and very comfortable. We didn't need it, but the log burner in the living room would keep the whole place cosy.

The west ward views of the sun setting over the river estuary and constantly changing tides are simply stunning; even on the couple of damp days we had, the weather cleared each evening and we were able to open the bi-fold patio doors from the kitchen/main living area and enjoy the balmy evening 6 nights out of the 7 we stayed.

The Cottage is beautifully situated in open countryside with Tenby, Pembroke, Stackpole, Folly Farm (ideal for wet days) and numerous other attractions all less than half an hour away. It was a home from home and we will definitetly be back!!

“A fantastic, relaxing holiday with beautiful scenery and accomodation and a great welcme from the owners.”
Reviewed 13 July 2014 for a stay in June 2014

I traveled with my husband and three teenagers for a weeks stay at Glan yr Afon.
We arrived to a lovely welcome from Nigel and Judy with a few treats after our journey.
The cottage is beautiful, well equipped and the views are stunning.
We had an amazing and relaxing week and did not want to leave on the Saturday.
Total piece and quiet which is what we all needed! The cottage at Landshipping is not far away from local shops and facilities which suited us all and we visted some lovely places on our travels and enjoyed the local walks.
We are planning on going back in 2015 for another week!
Thank you Nigel and Judy -a wonderful holiday with great memories.

“Beautiful surroundings, magnificent sunsets. Wonderful!”

This was our second stay at Glan yr Afon, and again it was perfect. The accommodation is first class, with all the amenities you could possibly want; all of a very high standard. The garden is lovely, offering wonderful views and glorious sunsets. It is perfect for those seeking peace and tranquility from the hustle and bustle of daily life. The hosts, Nigel and Judy are delightful and go out of their way to make your stay trouble free. Will definitely return - wonderful!

“Fantastic cottage and location”
Reviewed 14 June 2014 for a stay in June 2014

Loved this cottage, right next to an estuary, so you could sit in the garden, with a glass of something or cup of tea and just look at the fabulous view. Only a short walk and your down by the river, if you like it being quiet and serene this is definitely the place for you. But if you like places to visit there is a theme park down the road, plenty of Castles , gardens and quiet beaches. To be honest the pictures on the web site don't do it justice, it a lot bigger than you think, very well equipped and the beds nice and comfortable, its like going home for holiday. Its definitely a place I would go back to again.

“Gorgeous, peaceful location and a house that has everything and more!”
Reviewed 2 June 2014 for a stay in May 2014

What a gem!
The house is spacious and comfortably fitted 4 adults and a 4 yr old child in 3 beautiful rooms. Feels like home away from home with personal touches dotted around the house. Bedding, linen and towels all new, white and crisp. Bathrooms squeaky clean.
The setting of the house is simply stunning with river views from every window in the front of the house. We had good weather and were able to spend time in the garden playing with an assortment of games available (swing ball, tenpin bowling, boules).
Sites to visit which are breathtaking on a sunny day include Barafundle Bay and st Govan's Chapel.
Tenby is gorgeous, as well as Pembroke Castle. Folly's farm is great for kids. Had a great meal at the Boar's Head pub.
Big tesco in Haverfordwest to stock up on all groceries.
Hosts Nigel and Judy are great!
Highly recommend if you're looking for a peaceful, somewhat remote but stunning getaway. Hope to return there one day!

“Lovely, comfortable cottage in a superb setting”
Reviewed 27 May 2014 for a stay in May 2014

We really enjoyed our stay here. The cottage is charming, comfortable and well equipped and the owners next door helpful and hospitable. The setting is superb. We loved this part of Pembrokeshire and will be back as there is still so much to see.
