Reviews

Very cosy and had everything we needed, was like home from home. The added bonus was it were dog friendly, even the weather was perfect.
Recommendations: The coastal walks, and Sunday carvery at the Harbour Inn. A day spent in St Davids taking in the beautiful sights and the cathedral, or take a boat trip around Ramsay Island. Also visit the harbours in Solva, Porthclais and Porthgain.Marilyn from Cwmafan, Port Talbot - 29th March 2017
Swallows Cottage is a lovely modern cottage with all the facilities you need. Great views and a lot to do in the surrounding areas. Highly recommend it.
St Davids is a lovely town. Local airfield to walk round near the cottage, coastal walk also.Couple from Leicestershire - 3rd January 2017
Had a lovely week in Swallows cottage. Cottage was very cosy & well equipped. Owner very friendly & welcoming, also provided a few goodies too. Took two large dogs & had plenty enough space in the one bed cottage. Would visit again. If you have a dog or dogs with you check out the nearby World War Two airfield. Now a nature reserve with plenty of enclosed walks & running places. We have two greyhounds who really enjoyed their morning run especially on the runway. The cottage owner pointed us in the right direction. Could be walked but road a bit dangerous to walk two dogs on. Only five minutes in car. All beaches worth a visit but especially loved the blue lagoon at Aberieddy beach. Also free parking & only a short walk to the lagoon.Couple from Ammanford - 10th October 2016
Rosemary, the property owner, made us feel very welcome. It was like a home from home, with little touches like Welsh cakes and home made jam being left for us. Very relaxing stay.
Recommendations - Abereiddy (the Blue Lagoon) - walk there from Porthgain, there is a great circular walk and then stop for lunch/dinner at the Shed - fresh locally caught fish, just divine! Be sure to book though. Also - the Druidstone Hotel at Druiston Haven for dinner/drinks. Quirky boutique vibes and beautiful views.Couple from Birmingham - 10th June 2016
We found Swallows Cottage very cosy and comfortable
A very well equipped and clean cottage. Great coastal walks with quiet coves and beaches. We thought St David's is a great place to visitChris from Wiltshire - 18th February 2016
