We are so sad to be leaving Swn y Mor after a wonderful week, but we go home refreshed in mind body and spirit with the sound of the sea still in our ears and the beautiful views and sunsets still in our minds eye. Its been a delight after an exhilarating week along the cliff paths spotting seals to return to this warm, comfortable cottage - it's our favourite by far. Our stay here has had several highlights apart from the beauty of our surroundings: A boat trip round Ramsey Island. Not many sea birds this time of year but many seal families with pups and most interesting geology. Evening song at St Davids Cathedral, wonderful singing from the choir. An ear splitting, glittering fireworks display at Solva (Nov 5th) a great and very popular local event. It's all added up to a great memorable week. Many thanks - we'll try to return (for the third time) next year
A wonderful week on the coast - generally very lucky with the weather - two gloriuos days spent down at White sands. Thank you for a lovely visit
We have had a lovely week in your warm, comfortable cottage
Sitting in the kitchen, lamb casserole in the aga, coats hanging on hooks to dry out! Don't despair though, we sat out on the terrace to eat nearly every night this week - this cottage is so cosy when it rains, the occasional downpours are almost welcome! The beach to the right hand side of Abereiddy is lovely (when tide is out: much quieter) Walks to Porthgain & Trevin are easy. Pub at Trevin very quiet and basic but may be better at weekends. A wonder around headland at Solva gives wonderful views. Swn y Mor was much appreciated - Thank you
Have just spent a very enjoyable 2 weeks here - beautiful location and a very comfortable house. No mobile phone signal at the house was a delight!
This comfortable and cosy cottage must be one of the best Pembrokeshire cottages we've stayed in. Had a nice relaxing week with plenty of fresh air and exercise - the walk along the cliffs to Porthgain takes about an hour
Warm and comfy. Dinas head & St Davids head walks great! Porthgain and back also a good walk - Would love to come back.
A lovely seaside cottage in the countryside. Lovely cosy kitchen & sitting room - we ate in the kitchen as it was so warm. No telephone! We had a nice easter week here, a few days were unexpectedly but nicely sunny! We went on some nice little walks in the surrounding area and we played on the beach quite a bit! Lovely Cottage in an ideal location! very windy but sunny all the same and practically no rain through our whole visit! Lovely cosy sitting room and kitchen nice and warm. Some good local walks and beach good for playing rounders. There was too little time to do everything we wanted to do but had a lovely day out at Porthgain, Solva and St Davids. Loved all the art galleries around.
A very peaceful and happy week in this lovely cottage which is both homely and welcoming. A wonderful place for grandchildren who are so safe at the beach with plenty of lovely stones and shells to collect. The amenities are first class and during our stay it was heartfully warm throughout the cottage - easy to sleep, more difficult to wake up!
I really enjoyed our stay, there is a lot to do and I liked being close to the beach and climbing over the rocks. We spent time trying to find fossils and we found quite a lot. We hope to come back soon.
I had a greattime staying here. I liked the beach because there are rocks to climb an and past the rocks there is another beach which i liked because nobody else came. We will definitely come back again.
Fabtastic Cottage, cosy, very relaxing. Spent a lot of time in the kitchen, talking drinking tea, etc... One of the loveliest cottages I've been to! Spectacular scenery, a magical place, opens my mind and wows me. Beautiful place. Walk to Porthgain is brilliant. Aga is warm and great to cook on. Definitely want to return!
From the moment we picked up the key from under the stone, we fell in love with Swn Y Mor. Thank you!
Enjoyed going down the beach and fishing!
We thoroughly enjoyed our week here at Swn Y Mor. The cottage provided a homely and spacious base in one of the best spots along the coast. The aga cooked the bass we caught off the beach to perfection. The walk to Whitesands and back was nearly a step too far - thank heavens for a big bath and ample hot water on our return.
Abereiddy was my childhood playground. Used to camp on the beach by the seashore in the 50s and 60s. The cottage is just great and being back here and enjoying the atmosphere was a real tonic. We would love to come back one day when we have more time.
Our stay at this cosy cottage has been a delight. Wonderful coastal walks, wildflowers and weather. We would love to come back soon.
A lovely cottage which is full of character. We had a lovely stay here, which was made even better with the fantastic beach which was quite literally down the garden path. It was lovely to hear the waves crashing on the beach when the windows were open. All in all a fantastic holiday in a wonderful cottage, thanks.
This is our 3rd stay at Swn Y Mor - we enjoy it very much each time. The cottage is very comfortable and is always very clean and tidy. We love the aga - its been fun to cook with and the cottage is always lovely and warm. We'll be back!!
This is one of the lovliest cottages we've stayed in and we will miss it. Had a great time coasteering and jumping off into the lagoon! Thanks for a great stay - hope to be back very soon!
