“Excellent property, superb location, wish I was back there now!”

Just got back yesterday from a week staying at Valley View, and I'm missing it already.

As a group of three adults and one 18-month old child, we had a superb time. The property is lovely, deceptively spacious, and exceptionally well equipped. The beds were very comfortable; the large decking area was perfect for barbecues; and there are a range of useful touches such as Wi-Fi, a cafetiere in the kitchen, and a good selection of DVDs in case of bad weather (although the weather couldn't have been more perfect for our stay!) We found parking for two cars to be no problem at all, and could get either in and out easily.

The location is excellent. Five minutes walk down the road to Little Haven, or 10 minutes walk across an open field if you prefer. Little Haven itself is a gem - a very picturesque cove, with an attractive village huddled around it, boasting three very good pubs. Five minutes drive to Broad Haven, which has a Londis shop (including a cash machine), some more cafes/pubs and an extensive beach. 20 minutes drive to Haverfordwest, so a convenient base for exploring all around the Pembrokeshire coast.

Would definitely recommend, and would definitely hope to stay again.

We have just returned from spending a week at Valley View with our family and loved the house , location and of course Pembs. Valley View was very relaxing and excellently equipped. The location was perfect just up the hill from Little Haven but also just across the road from an open field and access to the coastal path. My little 2 yr old grandson loved walking this route to the beach and back collecting treasures on the way. We loved the decking area and conservatory with the outlook over the valley and the birds visiting daily was a treat. The house was warm and welcoming and had enough room for three cars to park which is a bonus in Little Haven. We would all recommend Valley View without hesitation. Forgot to mention Wi Fi a bonus too.

“Great location, full of character, comfortable and memorable stay.”
Reviewed April 25, 2014 for a stay in April 2014

The property lived up to our expectations. David and Lynne have obviously put a lot of thought into creating a lovely holiday home. We travelled with our two teenagers and dog and all loved the week there. Great location close to Little Haven with its pretty harbour, pubs and cafes and also surrounded by coastal and woodland walks. Valley View has a great outlook and we enjoyed sitting out on the veranda and observing the birdlife. We had lovely sunny weather, but I should think this would be a cosy place to stay in the winter months too.
It was extremely well equipped and we found everything we wanted.

Thank you for your warm comments and the confirmation that we succeeded in meeting your hopes and expectations and that you enjoyed your stay. You would be welcome for a return visit at any time! I agree that Valley View makes a cosy and homely base during the winter months as well as is confirmed by the many satisfied guests who have stayed there out of season. Little Haven takes on a different and equally charming character over the winter and Valley View provides a perfect base to return to after a bracing walk along the beach or the cliffs.

“What a Little Haven”
Reviewed April 1, 2014 for a stay in March 2014

Just returned from a perfect four night break in Valley View. The cottage was everything we could have hoped for in a weekend away - very cosy, immaculate, beautifully furnished, well located. Loved the decor - whiled away a glass or two speculating on their origins! In short we enjoyed one of the most relaxing weekends away we have had for some time.

“... one to return to, for sure ...”
Reviewed March 25, 2014 for a stay in March 2014

Booked this property (for myself and my elderly (in body but not in mind or spirit) mother and 2 jrt's.

It is often difficult to find a property that suits us all BUT the location of Valley View is - well remarkable - just a stone's throw from the Coastal Path with the property itself a bit of a tardis, perched on the edge of the valley, with loads of space all on one level (inside), good access all round and an amazing deck which was lovely in March and, I'm sure, hard to leave in the summer (with a very naughty resident Rook who has managed to make a little hole in the peanut feeder and can empty it in, literally, minutes!).

Easy access to the main town in the area (Haverfordwest (in case you need a town) and just minutes from all our favourite places: St Davids, Newgale, Solve, Broadhaven, Marloes etc., etc., etc.

Access to wi-fi a real bonus. Good visitor book with suggestions and helpful hints on what is where and how to work it in the cottage!

Am already trying to persuade various relatives to join us for a return visit later on this year.

Reviewed February 6, 2014 for a stay in January 2014

We arrived in the dark and the rain at the end of a very busy week and fell en masse through the front door into the most warm and welcoming hallway we could have hoped for .Everything about Valley View was beautifully presented and well thought out.it must be very loved by its owners as it has everything you would need.We all decided that we want to live in Valley View ! The beds are comfy, it was lovely and light and warm with lots of paintings and sculptures around .Everything was of great quality and it was spotlessly clean . The coastal path is just on the doorstep and the village of Little Haven a brief stroll where we had a great meal in The Castle . It was fun watching the birds visiting the well stocked bird table and being blown about by our wild welsh weather on the beaches nearby, then returning to this cosy little home from home which is Valley View.A happy place :)

“Couldn't have found a greater place to stay, if we had tried. Perfect for what we needed.”
Reviewed February 3, 2014 for a stay in January 2014

Valley View is obviously a house that is loved. It is surprisingly beautiful, comfortable, well stocked with everything we could possibly need. It definitely exceeded our expectations. Our dog was welcomed and David the owner's obvious intention was that we enjoyed our holiday, which we did. It has a conservatory surrounded by trees and sunshine. We ate, watched the birdlife and basked in the sun in January!

There are wonderful beaches to visit, coastal paths to walk, inspiring coastlines, places to explore, a great place to eat at the bottom of the road, St Bride's Inn, with its friendly host and good food. Thank you David, we hope we will see you again this year for a longer stay.

I am glad that I have succeeded for you and I look forward to your return. Thanks also for leaving the property tidy - it makes such a difference as I can then concentrate on the details for the next visitors.
