I could not recommend this cottage enough though wish I could keep it secret! In summary it is very well kept, clean, light and airy, with nice soft furnishings and a great layout - good for spreading out (family of 5) with kids in a peaceful location of outstanding beauty. Although this cottage accepts dogs (we are a non dog family) you could not tell as there was zero evidence which is testimony to the owners policy and Athena (house keeper). The garden was also great and the location perfect, only noise being wildlife, and the small adjacent therapeutic stream. From the cottage you can take a lovely walk to the Stackpole Inn or Lilly pad lakes through the Forrest path. The location is also perfect for getting to the excellent beaches of barafundle bay and broadhaven beech, which the kids loved body boarding at. Both Only 10 mins drive. These in my view are better and quieter beach’s than Cornwall and Devon. We will be definitively going back soon I hope!!!
We had a wonderful week in Wood Cottage, wandering through the woods, bat-spotting at twilight and swimming in the sea at Barafundle Bay and Broad Haven. The cottage was clean, well-equipped, cosy and comfortable with excellent wi-if. The Stackpole Inn is just a short, but beautiful, walk through the woods and serves delicious food and real ale. A truly special place.
As it says on the National Trust website...Stackpole is about award-winning sandy beaches, tranquil wooded valleys, wildlife-rich lily ponds and walking trails. And from Wood Cottage you can leave the car and do it all on foot. We thoroughly enjoyed our week there, although a week is a bit short after travelling from Sweden. The cottage has everything you might want. The shade of the garden in the evening was much appreciated in the very hot weather. Although most cottages we book are through agencies these days, it is probably better to book directly via the owner, as in this case. Peter is very accommodating, good at responding to queries and wants you to get the most out your holiday. Aged sirloin steak at the Stackpole Inn is also highly recommended!
The property has everything you need from a hairdryer to a washing machine. I have 2 dogs who had a fantastic holiday with walks from the door and the option to stop off at the café in Stackpole for a cream tea. Beautiful beaches and a seclude wood which gave the dogs some shade in the heat. The cottage it's self is well equipt and we were lucky enough to meet one of the owners Pete who was really helpful and friendly, nothing was to much trouble. We have already booked up again for next year. A marvellous get away, this cottage is a gem, Tenby and Pembrokeshire a short distance away. Fresh eggs at the top of the lane and a charming little church yard a stones through away. Clean, tidy and well worth a visit.
Thank you for an excellent stay in Wood cottage the week before last. We think that it is the best cottage we have stayed in as a holiday let, and we were particularly impressed with the obvious thought that had gone into ensuring that guests had everything they needed and that they would be able to relax and enjoy themselves. Its location was exactly what we like; secluded, quiet and peaceful, away from noisy roads (even local country roads are noisy these days) and it was very nice to be joined at the table outside by some of the local birds, eager to share anything we would give them.
