“Peaceful, tranquil and luxurious.”
Reviewed 16 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

The Old Cow Shed is a perfect retreat for a holiday and we would thoroughly recommend it. We were of mixed ages and there was something for all of us TV, wifi, comfy settees for reading all of an excellent standard. All home comforts and mod cons, provisions and consumables which, so often you have to bring were provided by the lovely friendly owners. We really enjoyed staying here and it was a great base from which to travel out and explore some of the Pembrokeshire National Park loved St David's , Marloes Sands, Tenby, Stackpole. There were plenty of places locally to go out to to eat, we particularly enjoyed Griffin at Dale as well as The Castle in Little Haven.

“Peace & quiet....& dogs too!”
Reviewed 22 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

We spent a lovely few days at The Old Cowshed. Booking was easy. Information pack sent through was comprehensive and helpful (though be warned, if coming from Haverfordwest direction, it's easy to miss turning for Butterhill). The accommodation is very very spacious, with loads of sofas, well stocked kitchen. Loved the en-suites and beds were really comfy. As it's a little off the beaten track, the reward is peace and quiet, lots of bird song to wake up to. Barbara and Hugh were friendly and helpful, but not intrusive. Their two dogs were great characters. Pembrokeshire is a beautiful area. Weather could have been better on the day we visited Skomer.... but the thought of seeing such a lovely island in sunshine, instead of rain, gives us a good reason to return.

We were so sorry the weather was not good for you. Generally, guests can nearly always expect some fine dry days and then you could really have properly seen pembrokeshire in all
It's glory! Please do return again when hopefully your will have much much nicer weather. But thank you for the lovely kind review!

“I'll be back”
Reviewed 25 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

I'm tempted not to give The Old Cowshed the stellar review that it deserves just so that I can keep it a 'secret'. But that would be unfair.
If you are even contemplating renting a cottage in Pembrokeshire, book The Old Cowshed now. You will not be disappointed. The cottage itself is the definition of 'lovingly and sympathetically restored'- stylish and all mod cons (including wifi) and yet retaining the ambience of the building it once was. It's been well thought through too - every bedroom with a ensuite; a boot room to dump everything in as you come in, a kitchen you can live in - and the big double height living space with light from every angle during the day and huge wall candles with a woodburning stove at night.
The garden and surrounding area is wonderful too; the peace, the views, the fresh air.
If and when you do want to venture further, there are no end to options for everyone. Walks, boat rides, castles, surfing, wildlife, pubs are all within easy reach.
It was a perfect break.

“Stunning Accommodation”
Reviewed 23 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

We were absolutely thrilled with the quality of this property. It is finished to a high standard and the configuration of the space is excellent. Barbara was very helpful and made us feel very welcome.

The coast is within walking distance if you're keen and it is a lovely stretch of the Pembrokeshire Coastal Path.

We certainly intend to return next year

Christine, thank you so much for your lovely comments, I am so glad we managed to get a DVD that worked so you could all chill out and watch your films- hope you decide to return and walk more more of the West Pembrokeshire coast path in the future - Barbara

“the WOW factor”
Reviewed 7 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

We have just returned from a very relaxing short break at The Old Cowshed and I'm already checking out availability for later this year. We were all so impressed with the amount of space, comfort and attention to detail - we have never stayed in such wonderful self-catering accommodation - everything you could possibly need is provided and more. This place certainly has the WOW factor !
