Had another fabulous week in Newport, finally helping to move in to a new permanent house here for the family! Gorgeous weather, mussels off the beach and sloes off the trees! A good week foraging will be back soon
A wonderful week as always at Cilhendre. Lovely walks, excellent weather, and lots of extremely good food.
The most perfect weekend away. I can hardly believe it is October! Perfect company.
What a great week, pretty good weather. Lots of walks, good food.
I had a brilliant time and it was really sunny. The house was excellent and the garden was good to play in, Thank you for letting us stay.
Thank you for your lovely house. We really enjoyed our stay.
Another super spring stay in your lovely home, joined by our eldest son + his wife. Weather kind, walks gorgeous with the last snowdrops, lots of daffodils and even some violets! Thank you

We had a brilliant Christmas in Children. Everything we could need to make out stay a home away from home. Owner was very helpful and on hand when needed him. Would certainly stay here again.
A wonderful stay weather was fine plenty of walks around the town, Cottage was beautiful, garden lovely would recommend it to anyone
We have enjoyed another idyllic holiday in wonderful Cilhendre -It is such a marvellous house for families, situated in one of the most beautiful places in the world!! All fourteen members of the Thomas family have been here over some part of the holiday and none of us has wanted to leave!! The crowning glory has been the three weeks of glorious sunshine! Thank you very much again from us all .
Plenty of space for our family of 6 adults to enjoy themselves. We really appreciated the games and books provided. Excellent local produce from the butcher and fish shop. Coastal path walks were amazing. Ran out of time for all the things we wanted to do.
Lovely old cottage plenty of everything, weather dry, sunny but very cold, fab for walks. Local pubs friendly and good food, suited the needs of our large family who vary in ages. Would love to come back in the summer to enjoy beautiful garden and surrounding beaches. Maybe one day.
Enjoyed our stay in very comfortable cottage. The weather has been perfect for the few days that we have been here. Lovely walk from Pwllgwaelod to Cwm Yr Eglws via the coastal path. Also walked from Aberieddy to Porthgain beautiful walk, good lunch in Sloop Inn. Parrog is very pretty too, Lovely meal in Golden Lion. We hope to return.
The cottage was excellent, Very well equipped, comfortable beds, very well maintained and pretty garden. Great weather and we very much hope the chance will come for us to stay again. Well done the owners for providing such a high quality holiday cottage at a very reasonable price
The cottage is lovely, just what was needed for the 8 of us! Warm, Cosy and well equipped. 'The Shed' at Porthgain was superb. Enjoyed our stay very much, cooking on the rayburn was great fun. I'm sure we shall be back. Thank you.
The cottage has more to recommend it each time we come - congratulations and many thanks again for the personal touch awaiting us when we arrived. The weather has been lovely all week but sadly only 1 dogfish caught! Thank you for everything.
Two families from Cardiff, we came for a short break and had a lovely time. This is the first time in Newport and we all thought it was a lovely place and would like to come again in the summer. Explored the area on foot, it's ideal for everything and plenty of shops and eating places to keep us going. The cottage is great, very well equipped and comfortable and cosy - we enjoyed cooking on the Rayburn.
Arrived at 3.15 from Somerset, first time here! First impressions lovely layout, comfy, spacious and charming, Can't wait until tomorrow. Enjoyed our few days, very comfortable a home from home. Will be coming back.
Having arrived on a brilliantly sunny day, 26th August, I have seen some wonderful weather and have swum in the sea a few times, though not always out of choice. But a very good time. The beds were comfy, the tea was hot and the chef upped the meals from girl sized to boy sized keeping us very happy. Enjoyed the stay, the company was well behaved most of the time.
We came for a weeks R&R and did exactly what it says on the can. lovely cottage in a stunning location. It rained but that did not distract at all from the peaceful holiday. Would like to return next year.
We can only agree with the Latimers (May 07). Lovely family home, keep up the good, very good work!!!
The other half of the party (Derek Evans-Welsh) - we don't wish to complain but the sun was much too hot all week - we just don't expect this in Wales. Also we had no bites - my husband is a fisherman and this was very distressing for him! On a serious note, we've been coming to Wales since the children were little & this is by far the nicest accommodation we've stayed in - keep up the good work.
Congratulations it makes my stay very enjoyable - your project is excellent. The weather for the full week has been sunny - sunny - sunny. The cottage for me is a high standard, very comfortable, spacious, well done. The bird life seems to be slow - the walks as ever excellent. Pembrokeshire to me, I love it. Will keep on returning. Thank you all!
Lovely holiday, fantastic weather. Aga - Fab! Going home with a tan! Golden Lion grub really good, try the Sloop Inn, Porthgain aswell. Beaches this holiday, Druidstone Haven and Barafundle, beautiful! Warm and comfy cottage with good local dog walks.
Excellent weekend stay, house quaint , comfortable and old - the same as guests! Excellent stay "be happy" (the fish!) Lovely house, friendly & homely. Enjoyed our stay!
Nice to be back in this cosy cottage, if only it hadn't been raining the whole time. Everything working and sat everynight around a gorgeous woodburner. Most comfortable!
We are sorry to be leaving this cottage, it has such a lovely homely atmosphere and we immediately relaxed into holiday mode when we arrived here. This is our first family holiday in Newport and we have all thoroughly enjoyed being so close to all that the place has to offer - we will be back!
Another lovely holiday in Newport and the sun shone all week. It is my second stay in this house and the transformation of the garden is simply amazing! The new owners must have worked very hard indeed to clear and open it up. I look forward to seeing the re-decoration as I shall be returning again.
