Guest Comments from Garn Isaf

Here are some of the comments from guests who stayed at Garn Isaf, a delightful self catering cottage in Newport Pembrokeshire.

"Very comfortable cottage in a superb position overlooking Newport Bay. The view from the lounge is amazing we were visited by three of the local sheep and the ginger cat who appeared evening morning and evening for feeding. Sometimes he spent the evening in the porch if he could get in! Pat wanted to take him home, he was so affectionate! It’s a great place for a relaxing holiday and would love to come again."
Pat, Sid Wilson, West Midlands

"We've had a fantastic holiday. Great cottage, lovely views, Tizzy nearly broke the sound barrier on the beach, Thanks, see you again soon."
Monica McGrath, Ashhorne, Warrickshire



"All of my family have been to Garn Isaf 4 times now. You can tell we enjoyed it a lot! I have had a wonderful time as well as my dog Alfie. I really enjoyed feeding the horses Caroline, Toffee, Minky, Calo and Seren. Minky was my favourite, even at the last day we got to take Minky, Toffee and Caroline out. I took Caroline out and after I got to ride her it was really fun. I really enjoyed my 4th trip to Garn Isaf, I hope I can come again."
Annabel Thomson aged 10

"Both of us and our dogs had just the kind of break we needed. We like to be able to dump the car, walk the dogs and generally do abit of nothing in a lovely area. Lets face it, who wouldn't to walk straight from their door either into the hills or down to the beach? What made the difference on this holiday was that never before has someone taken the time to let us know what the area has to offer and it was such a pleasant suprise the day you took us for a walk up Carn Ingli. Thank you, hope you will be happy to see us return." Michelle and Louis, Cheshire

"This is our favourite place on the planet! Our first stay here and we hope to return this summer. We love Newport and its surrounding area and this is a superb location to see everything. The cottage had everything we needed and the view is spectacular. Nothing can rival waking up to it or seeing the wonderful sunset and pink skies over the bay. It's the sort of place you want to keep secret, but you couldn't deny friends and family this jewel. We will be telling anyone who'll listen! Thank you for a lovely hospitable welcome. See you soon."
Hayley & Rhydian Thomas. Rhondda Valley

"Thank you for the lovely welcome and the vases of fresh flowers. The cottage is perfect and as walked through the kitchen, the views through the wonderful picture windows took our breath away.

We and our dogs loved the walks on the beaches. Thanks for your advice on places to eat and for a fantastic holiday."
