“Comfortable, clean, spacious, quiet”
Reviewed 6 October 2016 for a stay in September 2016
1
person found this review helpful

If you want a cottage that is comfortable, clean, spacious, well equipped and very quiet in a rural setting within a short car ride of the magnificent,Pembrokeshire coastline, this is a good choice for where to stay. There is just one word of caution: one of the two bedrooms, (each with its own bathroom and toilet) is on the first floor, accessed via a more than average number of stairs, this property being an excellent conversion of a tall barn. Whilst ascending these stairs to bed and descending for breakfast may have echoes of a grand country house, disabled folk would find the upstairs accommodation difficult or impossible to access.

“1st class accomodation”
Reviewed 16 February 2016 for a stay in February 2016

We were welcomed by Meg the dog and beautiful sponge baked by Honey what a great start to our break. We have stayed in various cottages in past but none compares to the high quality of these cottages no expense spared to give you the best comfort possible. Honey and Rob are able to recommend places to visit and also recommend places to eat. There are plenty of walks and leaflets in the cottage if you can be tempted to leave the comfort of the cottage and log burner

“Welcoming and relaxing”
Reviewed 6 October 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 27 September 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 10 October 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 9 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014
1
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!
