“Magical week in sunny Wales at Hendre House Cottages”
Reviewed 12 June 2016 for a stay in May 2016

This was our first visit to Pembrokeshire and we were ready for a break! The booking was handled efficiently and we were given detailed instructions on how to find Hendre House Cottages. When we arrived we were met by Michelle who welcomed us and helped us settle in. The owners (Michelle and Andy), live close by and are very friendly and helpful, but also kept their distance so we could enjoy our holiday.

We stayed in Herne Cottage, which is one of three Cottages at the location. It was perfect for our needs as we have a four year old daughter. The accommodation was fantastic and beautifully presented with all the required amenities. There were also pleasant personal touches everywhere where the owners had clearly spent time and effort on making this the perfect holiday accommodation. Everything was new and we were not left wanting throughout our stay.

The Cottages also have access to the swimming pool and hot tub which was fantastic as our daughter is still learning to swim. There were also swings and a climbing frame for our daughter to try and plenty of books and DVDs for her to use. We didn't try the BBQ shed during our stay but would have liked to.

Since the weather was wonderful all week, we spent a lot of time exploring the area. The beaches at Newgale and Whitesands are a must. Whitestands is just beautiful and well worth the journey. Solva and Porth gain are worth a visit too as was the Hilton Court Gardens. St Davids was also good to visit and the Cathedral is stunning.

The owners came up with a number of recommendations for visiting and places to eat. On their recommendation we tried out the Cambrian in Solva. The food is fantastic and worth trying, as were the fish and chips from the Shed at Porth gain.

Even though it was the holiday season there wasn't that sense of crowded areas which you can often get when visiting holiday locations. It was nice not to have to fight for parking spaces anywhere. Everywhere we went there was a sense of calm and it really helped us relax during a much needed holiday.

In summary, we had a magical week in Wales thanks to the wonderful holiday accommodation at Hendre House Cottages. Everything about the week was perfect and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Hendre House Cottages or Herne Cottage to anyone considering a visit.

“Excellent”
Reviewed 7 January 2016 for a stay in December 2015

The Cottage was in a good location, the grounds were kept really nice, the pool was ideal a nice size for me to do a bit of exercise. The Cottage was lovely, everything you needed was in there, it was well equipped and very clean. The owners Michelle and Andy were lovely and friendly and kept checking if everything was okay. I would definitely stay there again.

Her eyes cottage is a lovely place to spend your holiday. It is extremely well equipped and decorated to a high standard. The owners live nearby and are friendly and helpful but not intrusive. The swimming pool is great and the barbaque hut a real winner.
