Thank you for another wonderful week in our favourite cottage. Perfect for us and our two wobbly old dogs! We have been lucky with the weather and have been on a beach every day. Would happily stay another week but sadly its time to go home. We will be back! xxx

Lovely cottage, just as it shows on the internet. Loved all the homely touches, cottage very cosy. ‘Charlie’ loved the gardens as did we. Thank you for a lovely stay.

A wonderful cottage and location for exploring. Great recommendations plus new finds for us. The kids have loved it and want to come back. The dog is exhausted and we have had all our cobwebs blown away! Especially enjoyed Cenarth Falls. SeaMor dolphin watching in New Quay. Pizzas from The Canteen are pretty delicious too! Thank you Saran and Richard xx

Just returned from our second stay at The Old Swan Inn. Simply put - it’s the perfect base for families with kids and dogs, to explore the Cardiganshire and Pembrokeshire coasts. The cottage is beautiful, charming and has loads of outdoor space for kids and dog. Beautiful and wholeheartedly recommended!
— Richard, Deb, Beth, Harry & Hugo the dog
This has been a wonderful place to stay for a week with our dogs. Hosts Saran & Richard have created an exceptional bolt-hole for everyone looking to get away for a week or so in beautiful countryside with every possible creature comfort provided. The cottage is beautifully furnished and its surrounding gardens and meadows are both picturesque and secure; our gun dogs loved training in the long grasses in the hay meadows. Saran and Richard could not have been more helpful and charming. We eave for home reluctantly, but knowing that we’ll be back sometime soon! With Many thanks, David, Sarah & Dogs
— David, Sarah & Dogs

Wonderful cottage with everything you could ever need, brilliant ‘hosts’ and nothing was too much trouble for them, excellent trip and restaurant recommendations, Pembrokeshire is absolutely glorious, definitely want to come back again.....for everything! Cannot recommend highly enough! Thank you Saran and Richard.

Beautiful place. It’s been nice to discover new areas. ‘Lizzie’ loved it here and so did we. Richard and Saran looked after us very well and everywhere we went was friendly. We enjoyed Newport the most, but on any clear day the costal path in any direction is awesome. The ‘Nags Head’ pub at Abercych is worth a visit, pretty, good food and dog friendly.
— Jane and Ralph Holland with English Springer 'Lizzie'
We have had the most amazing time at the Old Swan Inn. Thank you for making the stay perfect. The cottage is perfect and we wanted for nothing. Looking forward to returning for another two weeks. Many thanks and kind regards.

Thank you so much for a lovely two weeks with you. We thoroughly enjoyed meeting you both and the cottage was delightful, comfy and really well equipped. We were reluctant to return home. Thank you so much again and we hope to meet you both again at Swan. Have a lovely summer. With kind regards.

What a fantastic two days! Couldn’t asked for better hosts Saran and Richard. ‘Thor’ the dog, loved the open space. It was so peaceful at night. Would come back again.

A perfect family break with our puppy ‘Fudge’. Space and beautiful grounds to walk and explore - the firepit was a hit! Comfy beds and lovely bathroom to relax in. Area was also very dog friendly. A warm welcome to. Thanks Richard and Saran for your help and support! We will be back! Definitely recommend!

December 2018

This is a little gem of a cottage. Saran & Richard really had gone above and beyond with extra little touches - everything seemed to hold quality and thought. I must also mention the super-king bed which allowed a dreamy sleep. Saran & Richard were very welcoming and helpful - we couldn’t have asked for a better place or hosts to enjoy our new year stay. We enjoyed a wonderful few days seeing in the New Year. Thanks for being such great hosts.
— Laura and Dean from Bristol
A beautiful and well kept cottage with great consideration given to every comfort. Our hosts were very helpful and made us feel very welcome.
— Ken & Gill Millard from Wiltshire

Had a really relaxing time. ‘Digby’ loved all the space to run around. We will be back and would have loved to stayed longer.
— Jill, Chris, Callum & Joseph with 'Digby' the dog.
Lovely cottage, we had a great time! (Even managed to get a bit of sunshine, despite the weather forecast). Thank you for your warm welcome, we loved our stay, and will hopefully get back here again next year.

October 2018

The most amazing cottage we have ever stayed in. Luxury throughout. Log fire every night, outside fire pit and marshmallows. Nothing was too much trouble for Richard and Saran. So accommodating. They had a box of Halloween goodies for our son to decorate the cottage and a pumpkin to carve.
We feel so relaxed and chilled. We loved everything about the Old Swan Inn and will definitely come back. Thank you so much xxx
’Gizmo’ says “Woof Woof” for the doggy treats :)

August 2018

We have loved our stay at the Old Swan Inn. We needed a restful break and some time to recharge our batteries and this was perfect. We loved the surrounding area including the many lovely beaches - nothing seems too far away. We have loved the garden - the dogs have probably loved it more!! And the cottage is just so comfortable and has everything we needed for a relaxing holiday. Hope to see you again next year. Thank you xx
— Di and Kev with dogs Dougie and Alfie from Leeds
We’ve had a lovely second stay at the Old Swan Inn! The girls have loved running round the meadow and ‘ghost stories’ by the log fire at night! We really don’t want to go home - we’ll be back soon. Thank you.
— Ian, Alana, Marley & Ava Buckingham
We wanted a peaceful and tranquil holiday with lots of sea air and beaches. We got everything we wanted. After many lovely days out it was good to come back to the cottage and relax in the garden with a glass of wine, listening to the sounds of the sheep. Fantastic time and great hosts.
— Lorraine and Gary with dog 'Ernie'.
Another perfect family holiday - we don’t want to go home! Can’t fault it in any way - Diolch yn fawr!
