We have had a lovely stay at the cottage, the beds were very comfortable. We have enjoyed playing badminton in the garden. We can highly recommend the sunset dolphin trip to New Quay. The children particularly enjoyed body boarding at Llangranog beach. We also visited Fishguard to hear some jazz at the festival and then see the carnival. It has been a lovely holiday.The Hutchings family from Kettering - 22nd August 2017
Thank you Frances for a fantastic short break. Don’t want to go home. The cottage is immaculate and has everything we could possibly need. We love the stable door in the bedroom giving access to the decking and lawned area. BBQ and swing chair – lovely touch! The fishing trip you recommended with EAC Fishing in New Quay was amazing. Both the mackerel & the shark fishing. Strongly recommend visitors to go on the trips. We will be back very soon. p.s. never slept so well. John from Derbyshire - 29th May 2017
We had a great holiday and we enjoyed it a lot. Very well maintained and managed, Frances, and thank you for everything. My parents from India came here for the first time and they just loved it. Definitely see you in summer. Kids-friendly home. Love, Kripa & Amar Kripa & Amar from Sutton Coldfield - 26th December 2016
Very clean, spacious & cosy cottage with lovely garden & beautiful views. The community shop and Mill is a short walk, left out of cottage. Nice trail walk from Paddlers Club, over bridge to left, passing shire horses and straight to swimming baths. Days out to Fishguard (1 hour), New Quay – lovely! (30 mins), Poppit Sands (30 mins) and great city day in Swansea (70 mins). Nice restaurant in Mumbles overlooking seafront, great marina, Maritime Museum and Waterpark LC2. No signal for mobile so we used WhatsApp and WiFi here until midnight. Water pressure for showers brilliant - better than at home! Had BBQ in garden and Frances has all equipment in shed. We were recommend a boat trip from New Quay, the 6pm trip – we saw many dolphins up close. Loved it..the wildlife, trails and especially the lovely people we met.Kim and family from Chester - 22nd August 2016
Wonderful stay, thank you! Underfloor heating heavenly after a trip to the cold & windy beach! Recommendations: Aberaeron Harbour Master for food/coffee and Newcastle Emlyn for nice shops. Visit Caws Cenarth cheeses if you have kids or if you love good cheese! We’ll be back in summer.Clara & Stuart, Malvern - 31st December 2015
What an excellent stay! Well equipped cottage meeting all our needs plus more! Didn’t want to leave. Lovely area! Lovely people! Lovely hosts! Many places to explore and see for free. Kids loved the garden & cottage. Many thanks.
From Safiyah (13): Lovely warm and clean cottage. Very spacious. I especially loved the garden swing and the cosy beds. Recommend Llangrannog and Penbryn beaches. Hope to come again soon. Thank you very much, Frances!Abu Lubaynah, Birmingham - 24th August 2015
Our second stay here at Dairy Cottages and it was just as successful as our first. The cottage and garden provided an environment where our children felt safe and happy, and where us grownups could relax, unwind and enjoy quality family time. We are particular fans of Penbryn beach – lovely sand, not too busy and a safe sea for the children and grownups to enjoy!Richard, Jo, Abigail & Thomas Drake - 15th August 2015
We’ve had a wonderful time at this lovely cottage. Diolch yn fawr!Gareth & Cat, Caitlin & Deiniol - Cardiff - 12th August 2015
We had a pleasant and memorable stay at the cottages. We stayed with our extended family from India and we all enjoyed the stay very much. Would like to visit again. Thank you!Sadanand, High Wycombe - 29th May 2015
