Wright Family

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.

Owens & Reddy Family

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.

The Greaves and Shaw families

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.

Latimer Family

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.

The Marshalls and kings - Cardiff

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.

Tina & Lee

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.

Mary Tillson and Olli Phillips

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.

the Le Hagarts & Buzards

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.

Natalie and Raiker - Germany

We can only agree with the Latimers (May 07). Lovely family home, keep up the good, very good work!!!

The Latimers

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.

Derek Evans-Welsh, a very happy chappy!

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!

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!

Bertie and Emma

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!

Steph, Paul, Rosie, Fi, Will, Clair & Laura

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!

Megan Price

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.
