"What a fantastic place to stay…"
On the first evening when walking along the coast path we saw approx 6 dolphins! Also on one clear night the Milky Way was visible. Such a relaxing peaceful week, sitting in the garden listening to the waterfall. The complementary cat was also welcome! Great local walks and the pub at Pontfaen is worth a visit, where they serve you beer from a jug through a hatch! We loved the touches in the cottage, and the stair rail is a thing of wonder! Thank you Jo & John

"Love at first sight…"
Even before we entered the cottage, I was mentally trying to work out when we could come back and stay again this year. We have luckily stayed in some beautiful places around the world, however it is such a rarity to find somewhere that has been created with such a loving empathy with the natural surroundings and so much respect for our fragile environment. Beautiful enduring craftmanship throughout the cottage, we are in awe of what John and Jo have created. A few of our favourite things:- No light polution sitting under a beautiful star studded sky, a natural wooded valley complete with mesmerising waterfall, the view of the sea, with a beach within strolling distance, peace and quiet. The cottage is beautifully equipped, a pleasure to cook in. Fresh produce abundant in Newport and Fishguard. Breakfast on the beach, lunch in front of the waterfall, dinner under the stars. How blessed are we, thank you.
"A little patch of heaven…"
"When you are already planning your return visit within minutes of arriving, you know you have found the perfect place…"
And it really is perfect — all of the beautiful detailing, the stunning setting, everything you could possibly need. The biggest dilemma was whether to have breakfast overlooking the sea or the waterfall...! Can recommend the walk round Dinas Island, which offers the opportunity for two stops at the pub. Really though, we would be happy just to stay here and enjoy these gorgeous surroundings.
"The perfect weekend, wet but warm, lost in a dream…"
"We feel we have been transported into some magical wonderland — this is such a special place…"
The cottage itself is so exquisitely restored and decorated; the gardens are an absolute joy and worth all the hard work John & Jo have put into them; the setting just above the beach and easy access to the coastal path; and the welcome addition of the sitting area near the beach with an excellent fire-pit, (we're going to get one ourselves!).
"Bliss! Thanks to John & Jo for taking such care…"
"The best Welsh cottage we have stayed in…"
"What a "jewel" of a place…"
After escaping to the tranquility of Brittany for years, we now see that everything we wanted was on our doorstep in Felin Hescwm:- The spectacular coastline, quaint pubs, but above all the beauty and cosiness of the cottage was the icing on the cake. We have had a wonderful, relaxing stay and our batteries are now recharged, we will be back.
