  • “I'm afraid I have to agree with previous guests.”

    .. ...

    .. Cleanliness. I don't know what you are paying the cleaners but it clearly isn't enough. There were old pieces of food items and other detritus under the sofa beds in the snug. Spiders' webs everywhere. Three large Crane flies were firmly established in the shower area of the main bathroom. Comfort. The beds are too hard, both the mattresses and the pillows. The two sofa beds in the snug are not comfortable. The third sofa in there is too low! Facilities. One of the two log burners was out of commission. Had we known this in advance we would not have booked the cottage. This was one of our requirements for the kitchen area. We saw the two burners in the photos when we originally searched for this place. It meant that we only used the snug all the time as it had a log fire that worked. The kitchen/dining area was rarely used because we could never get it warm enough. The cottage itself was lovely, had character and was well-positioned for the local facilities. However, the whole experience was marred by the faults described above. And it's no good simply to respond by saying we should have contacted you, or that it's down to personal preference, or personal taste. Many people are coming back to you with the same issues. That should tell you something. You need to address these issues!

    We were saddened to receive your feedback. Since becoming available to book, Tyddyn Bach has overall received positive feedback from its guests. In fairness to owners, it is important guests inform us immediately of any issues with a property, thus having the chance to put things right. In this instance, the local office would happily have carried out an inspection and, if necessary, asked the cleaner to return. The property description has only ever listed one wood burner, but we are sorry if that was not clear enough. If the double doors to the sitting room are kept open, the wood burner will heat the kitchen/dining area, too. There are instructions in the property for how to increase the heat output of the storage heaters. All beds in the property have been fitted with new mattresses. Property Owner

The property

Tyddyn Bach is a wonderfully characterful cottage resting in the pretty coastal town of Newport, Pembrokeshire.

Offering a charming open-plan kitchen with a quintessential cottage feel running throughout, this dwelling is ideal for friends and families alike to enjoy a refreshing break to Wales.

Stepping into the cottage, the open-plan snug, dining area and kitchen welcomes you in, with its traditional wooden fixtures and furnishings.

Whip up your meals in the kitchen, using the electric oven and hob before sitting down with the group at the farmhouse-style dining table to plan the next day's adventures.

From here, make your way to the separate sitting room to snuggle up with your loved ones; here you will find a toasty wood burning stove to gently warm the room while you relax and unwind and watch the Sky TV.

Retire to the bedrooms for some well-earned rest after a long day of discovering the local area; the first floor is home to two twin bedrooms, ideal for a flexible sleeping arrangement for friends and families, along with a king-size with an en-suite shower room.

Each bedroom is complete with original character beams and plenty of storage to unpack your belongings in this home away from home.

Completing the interior of the cottage is a family bathroom where you freshen up and get ready for the day ahead; the bathroom is home to a bath, a shower over, a basin and a WC.

You don't need to travel to enjoy the outdoors at this property; the delightful garden plays host to a patio area with ample furniture for you to enjoy a spot of al fresco dining in the summer months.

A tranquil brook runs through the lawned area of the garden and is served by quaint slate bridges and surrounded by fruit trees.

Give yourself a break from the cooking and head out to one of the local restaurants.

Tides Kitchen & Wine Bar offers a tasty fresh seafood menu, while Llys Meddyg Hotel & Restaurant provides lovely outdoor dining facilities so you can enjoy a pint in the sun.

If Italian is your preference, The Canteen is within walking distance and offers scrumptious fresh pizzas.

For days out while you are at the cottage, take a trip to the Welsh Wildlife Centre where you can get up close and personal with the wildlife and unleash your creative side at the craft centre before stopping for a light lunch in the café.

History buffs will relish in an afternoon at Castell Henllys Iron Age Village, where you can wander the settlement, meet the tribe, and gain an insight into life 2000 years ago.

If you are travelling with younger visitors, why not spend an afternoon at Folly Farm Adventure Park and Zoo, or even take a trip to Pembrokeshire Llamas where you can guide the llamas around their field for a truly unique experience.

There are an abundance of walking and cycling routes in the area and along the nearby coastlines as well as the stunning Blue Lagoon, an old quarry which is now bright aqua waters; the lagoon was an active slate quarry until 1910, before being abandoned and flooded.

Whatever you get up to on your holiday, Tyddyn Bach is the ideal base for a memorable trip to Pembrokeshire.
