The Pembrokeshire region
The Pembrokeshire Coast National Park, one of Britain's breathing spaces, takes in about a third of the county including the entire coastal strip, the upper reaches of the Daugleddau (two swords) and the Preselis. It's the only National Park that is almost entirely coastal. The National Park run an extensive programme of activities and events for both adults and children: rockpool safaris, crab catching, bat walks and even time travel! They're all listed in the Coast to Coast newspaper: pick one up when you get here.
The National Trust owns and protects many of the most important sections of the coast especially around Barafundle beach, Marloes, St Davids, Porthgain & Dinas. The trust also runs the superb Colby Woodland Gardens at Amroth and the Tudor Merchant's House near the harbour in Tenby.
Haverfordwest is the county town of Pembrokeshire and is ideally located to get the best out of your visit, being right in the heart of the county. The town itself dates back to the 10th century and has many ruins and a castle museum that offers more insight into it's vast history. There are also an abundance of shops, bars, clubs, restaurants and a modern leisure centre with swimming pool all within walking distance of the cottage.
The beaches of Broad and Little haven are within six miles, further west are the magnificent Newgale, Solva and St Davids and to the south, Dale and Marloes. Also within easy driving distance are the many attractions and theme parks and other popular areas such as Tenby and Saundersfoot.

"Compact but clean and comfortable"
The cottage is ideally suited for 2 people. The location near town and amenities is great, particularly for this price but it is up a steep hill from town which was fine for us. Loved exploring the neighbourhood. We were lucky with the parking, small space to be sure, but were equally ok with free parking in St Thomas Green if it was needed. The bedroom was light and airy and my favourite room. New carpets I think? A totally different feel to the downstairs. It was as though 2 different people had decorated the upstairs and downstairs. (Shower pressure a bit naff, but not horrendous, well, not yet) Downstairs space is difficult as there is no other natural light except for glass frontage so it does feel dingy. Also couches were not comfy but pricewise you can't complain. Personally I would get rid of all things brown...light, bright the way to go and no naff wall pictures. If you use one, make it striking and bright or none. You can repaint kitchen units in shabby chic. It won't take much to 'uplift downstairs' . Otherwise all good. Liked the details of complimentary tea tray and showering products. Nice. I can see it as a work in progress. On the bonus side for us was allowing and trusting us with 5 mth puppy. Thank you Robert! Discovered the area thro morning walks and late evening walks as no outside area, and she was so good. A good place to explore Pembrokeshire from. Thank you! Good location, good value. #sorryfordecoratingadvice

"Nice cottage - no heating :-("
The cottage itself was lovely, simply furnished but clean and good value for money. Perfect for us (a couple with a 10month old baby) The massive let down for us was the fact that the heating didn't work :-( There were two storage heaters in the property, neither of which had been switched on prior to us arriving meaning we arrived on a Friday night, with a baby to a very cold house. There was one oil radiator which took the edge off the living room but soon afterwards had to be transferred to the bedroom when the baby went to sleep. We followed the instruction manual left for the heating, turning both the storage heaters on at the wall and hoping that the next morning the heaters would have kicked in. Sadly his didn't happen, we checked the instructions again, checked the fuses - everything seemed to be in working order but on our second night the heaters also didn't come on. Whilst the oil radiator was some help, it would have been nice if there were two of them, as my boyfriend and I found we were sat huddled in the cold in coats and blankets downstairs when we moved the radiator upstairs to heat the bedroom. Given that we were renting this cottage in a winter month, and were very specific about the fact we had a baby with us, I found the lack of heating unacceptable. Fine in the summer, but in January it was uncomfortable and ruined our stay. A shame as we have family just 2minutes round the corner and would have probably stayed in the Farriers cottage again and again had the heating provision been better.
Hi There. We are really sorry to hear that the heating did not work during your stay. However, this is the first time we have heard about this from you and have not been made aware of the problem before reading your review. I would like to mention that our contact details are clearly detailed in the cottage in case there are any problems such as this. We have a fully qualified Electrician (Brian Rees) on hand that would have either rectified this problem for you or we would have put an extra oil heater in the property for the remainder of your stay. We think it's a little bit unfair to leave negative feedback, when if given the chance, we would have sorted this problem out for you immediately with very little effort needed - even if this meant coming out in the middle of the night and nipping over the 24 hour Tesco across the road and buying a new heater, it would not have been a problem I can assure you. Needless to say - I have now requested for Brian to go into the property to check out the electrics before we accept another booking - if the problem cannot be resolved for the night storage heaters - we will put another oil heater into the property. As a gesture of goodwill, I would like to offer you a free night if you decide to stay with us again, if you do decide to give us another go - let me know which dates you want to book and I will reduce the cost of 1 night for you. Pembrokeshire is a fantastic place to stay during the summer or winter and I don't want this incident put you off coming back again. I can assure you and anyone else who is reading this review, that the problem regarding the heating will be fixed before anyone else stays at the property. We take the comfort of our Guests very seriously and am deeply sorry about this problem and offer our sincere apologies. Thanks Rob Hughes

This stay was wonderful, the locality of the house was perfect for every thing we needed it for. It was close to the road to take us to the beach and the wonderful Pembrokeshire coast and also to pop in to the charming town of Haverfordwest. It was close to some stunning restaurants and was perfect for our stay. Thank you.
