The castle is well worth a look & is very well maintained. Folly farm and adventure park zoo, fantastic day for the children of all ages & very reasonably priced. there's the dinosaur park and the zoo which we'll have to leave for our next visit! The steam railway is fun. The Pottery is well worth a visit. So thank you for opening up your house for rent!

Really sad to be leaving this fantastic house. We've had a great time and would love to come back, thank you for a lovely visit.
We are very sad to be leaving the lovely cottage after 2 fantastic weeks! We did lots of surfing at Manorbier beach and freshwater West Beach . We managed to hire a surf board from surfs up company based at Freshwater West. It was definitely worth it and the guys that run it are very friendly . We spent some lovely days on Broadhaven South beach Skrinkle beaches near here. We crabbed at Angle whilst having a drink at the old point house. 36 crabs, so go there if you are into crabbing. Fab week away.
We've spent a magical few days here...Glorious sunshine, beautiful unspoilt beaches, lots of swimming, wave catching and eating and drinking! All topped off today by a stunning beach ride from Nolton Stables. Cantering along the sunlit beach was really an experience to cherish.
We had a lovely holiday in this comfortable, cosy cottage. It has everything you need and the village is a great base for a weeks holiday, the children loved the trampoline!

Lovely big cottage with beautiful garden, excellent location and handy bus stop to Tenby. Everyone seems very friendly. Good fish and chips from the Castle Inn (New Owners). Great walks to Bosherston/Stackpole Quay/Tenby. Picton Castle definitely worth a visit a little further afield and of course a visit to Manorbier Castle a must. Handy BBQ in summerhouse. Kitchen very well equipped, patio area is a real sun trap. Beautiful beaches at Barafundle & Broad Haven. Swan Lake Pub serves a good pint (according to my partner!) definitely a real getaway from all location
Excellent cottage lovely garden, we do quite a bit of cooking when away & found everything we could want, love the Stackpole area. Thank you for choc and wine
We really enjoyed our stay in the lovely cottage. The accommodation was excellent, so well equipped and comfortable. Well worth a visit to Church doors in Skrinkle Haven but found it easier to walk via the Youth Hostel. Enjoyed the food at The Beach Break Cafe - Very good value, food was tasty! Many thanks for the chocs & wine - much appreciated. We are sad to be going home but hope to be back!

Cottage was great for us, just the two of us and Beau the Labrador. Most days spent walking, we managed all the local beaches, but best walks were around Stackpole and Bosherston. All walks well covered in Maps left for guests. We dined at the Castlemead which was very nice, the tea room in the Village serves tremendous food ( we went 2 days running) and the new manager of the pub very welcoming. All in all, a great week of walking, only 2 days of poor weather so we were lucky. We will definitely recommend Sunnybank and local area to friends and family.
The cottage was just perfect, with so many thoughtful touches. The area is amazing, i've never seen rocks like it! We ate in the Stackpole Inn very nice, Mulberry in Saunsdersfoot recomended, and the swanlake- good. Secluded bays, massive sandy beaches, comfy cottage. Everything was perfect.
Lovely house and Garden, very comfortable and welcoming. We have had 2 great days at Tenby & its beaches. Lovely day at freshwater East beach. My 3 year old loved the day trip to Folly Farm (well worth a visit if you have kids) Altogether a lovely break away from home/work. Very peaceful (even with a 3 year old)
We have had a great week, the cottage has been fantastic and perfectly located for exploring the Pembrokeshire Coast. The weather has also been on our side and have enjoyed evenings in a beautiful garden, Thank you
We have had a fantastic holiday here and couldn't have asked for more in this beautiful accommodation. It is very well equipped and the garden is just stunning, a real little haven (the pictures do not do it justice) The Surrounding areas of Tenby, Manorbier, Lydstep provided us with plenty of lovely walks and we generally had good weather. We are going home feeling relaxed and revived, thank you!
thsi cottage is perfect! A lot of thought went into the look and style. Loads of space beautiful garden and no facilities were un catered for. This part of Wales is great for a week away for kids and dogs. We found the best beach on the last day - freshwater west
Excellent holiday home, loved the garden too. Very comfortable and tastefully decorated (could quite easily live here!)Manorbier beach is great, nice and clean with ample parking. Coastal Paths either side of the bay are quite spectacular, swanlake beach was nice. Great tea rooms in the village, very friendly staff and local shop was very handy. A visit to stackpole is a must, its beautiful. Horse riding on the beach at Nolton was a dream come true. Thank you x
