Beautiful cottage and location - it was a real treat to step out of the door and stroll over to the headland, then return to a roaring fire! Our lab appreciated that too! Perfect for a family get-together, lovely and homely....a great few days. Thank you.

Jenny and Tony Brockway, Lincs. March 2007

Couldn't have picked a more perfect location for our family get-together. All three cottages have proved ideal. Despite atrocious weather conditions we've been warm and cosy and have really appreciated the personal touches and high standards in fixtures and fittings. We all needed to chill out and this has been a great place to achieve that. Many thanks.

Jo and Bob Challinor, Much Wenlock March 2007

A warm welcome, fantastic location, perfect accommodation! We've had such a great time - a very happy holiday. The walk to the beach is lovely, and most days we were the only ones there! We've really appreciated the space in the cottage, the games room,sandpit, play the peace and quiet. we are sad to be leaving. we hope to come back again soon.

Engels family,Leics and Cousins,StPeters,Missouri,USA

The best cottage we've stayed in, in Pembs - best equipped, most spacious and comfortable and we've enjoyed using the kayaks and games room - haven't played table-tennis for years! A really friendly and welcoming place to stay. We really hope to come back.

As the rest of middle England sufferd the floods we enjoyed the peninsula's 'micro-climate' and are returning home once again sunburnt and with memories of another lovely stay here. With Grandma next door,cousins across the way and in the other cottage we have thoroughly appreciated the excellent accommodation. Kayaks and games room went down so well. For me - just the stunning location and views is enough. Many thanks again.

Geraint,Anne,Ieuan,Lamorna,Morgan and Iestyn Richards. Newport,Gwent July2007

Gorgeous cottage - hard to imagine how it could be better.Great to have our own beach,and just about mastered steering a kayak.Alfie the dog and Rosie and Jim the donkeys very popular with the children.Wonderful area for a holiday- dolphin trip highly recommended(loads of dolphins and fantastic seabirds)

Hudsons, Romsey,Hants Aug 2007

The first week in September.What luck-some gorgeous weather after a miserable summer-and we were here on holiday! Mackerel suppers,kayaking below the cliffs,sleeping babes on the beach - a lovely holiday enjoyed by all.We'll be back! We love it here.
