“A real home from home in the most gorgeous setting”
Reviewed 24 January 2016 for a stay in January 2016

This cottage was a real find - it has everything you could need for a week away even in a cold / wet January. The owners were incredibly welcoming both with treats on arrival & information about the local area. The area has amazing walks around the coastline with different scenery around every corner and plenty of wildlife to look out for. St David's offers lots of things to do - touring the cathedral, playing golf, visiting the local beaches and we even ventured into the sea coasteering on a frosty morning.
The cottage was warm and cosy with very comfy beds, good wifi, a well appointed kitchen and great views of the sea. It's somewhere I'm sure we will return to many times to explore the area further.

Thank you for such a kind, helpful review and taking the time to write it. How wonderful coasteering in winter, today we have very stormy seas not so suitable. So pleased that TYF had ideal wetsuits for this time of year for you. Look forward to your next visit. Kind regards, Eleri and Rob.

“Perfect location, lovely cottage and warm welcome”
Reviewed 10 January 2016 for a stay in July 2015

Many trips to Pembrokshire; by midweek our 9 year old daughter declared it the best cottage we have even stayed in. Combination of location, lovely cosy cottage, warm welcome and stunning views. Just booked again for this year.

Warm welcome from Rob and Eleri. Cottage has lots of lovely personal touches and everything you need. Enduring memory of Rolling Stones playing on iPod dock in the kitchen and half a dozen sheep pressed up against the fence peering in the open window!

Walked to lifeboat station and back (bit of a magical mystery tour on way back), St Davids and the beach of course. Can't wait to return,

“Dream location and Welsh hospitality at its very best”
Reviewed 13 November 2015 for a stay in October 2015

What a place to stay and what a location! The 'sales description' for the cottage is entirely accurate and Pembrokeshire is just as lovely as everyone says.

Ty Mortimer is an excellent, comfortable place to be if you want to 'get away from things' in the countryside, but don't want to be too remote. Not only is St David's pretty close by road, but the coast path is just 15 minutes' walk away. Added to that, the hospitality of Rob and Eleri is second to none and also optional. Genuinely welcoming, they will answer questions, lend you bits and bobs, check you're OK or just have a chat IF YOU WANT THAT. If you want to be left alone they don't intrude.

Having a car makes sense if you are staying here, since you'll need to be determined people if you intend to walk direct to shops and other facilities in St. Davids every other day (1.5 to 2 miles each way, on unlit lanes).

The house is cosy and well-equipped -a home from home. How lucky we are to have found this! Thank you for having us.

“Tremendous Ty Mortimer Cottage at Treginnis Farm”
Reviewed 4 June 2015 for a stay in May 2015

We arrived at Treginnis Farm to a warm welcome from Rob and Eleri Davies. Located close to the Pembrokeshire coastal path and a short walk to the hidden gem that is Porthllisky Beach, Ty Mortimer is a lovely, cosy cottage set within spectacular scenery. Ty Mortimer is merely a short drive to or leisurely walk away from the village atmosphere and amenities of the City of St David's. You cannot visit St David's without treating yourself to a sublime Ice Cream from Gianni's which is conveniently located in the centre of the High Street. Eleri Davies is a mine of information when it comes to local restaurants, events and things to do both locally or elsewhere in Pembrokeshire.

The fantastic surfing (or body-boarding) beaches of Newgale and Whitesands are located conveniently close by. And of course you can see a fantastic variety of wildlife if you venture out along the coastal path. From sea birds such as Cormorants and Guillemots, birds of prey such as Buzzards, Kestrels and Red Kites to much smaller birds such as Swallows, Pied Wagtails and Red Starts, there is plenty to see for the birding enthusiast. If you're lucky you might also spot Seals, Porpoises or Dolphins whilst walking the coastal path. In summary, Ty Mortimer is a great base for a fantastic holiday. We definitely hope to return to this lovely venue.

“Lovely cottage in stunning scenery”
Reviewed 25 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Arriving here after a long journey we we delighted to find a cosy, clean and comfortable cottage. Everything you need is there (even wifi!). The owner had provided some thoughtful welcome supplies including milk, wine, tea, coffee and welshcakes...

The cottage is 2 km from St David's and the journey to the city takes just five minutes in the car or you can walk it in 30 mins. St David's is a lovely city and has all you might need - shops, restaurants and pubs.

The cottage is ideally placed for the Pembrokeshire coast path - there are many lovely walks from the cottage along the coast with stunning scenery. Beaches for the kids are close by. Bird spotters will be in heaven - we saw swallows, stonechats and a multitude of sea birds close to the cottage. Day trips to Stackpole Quay and Skomer are within an hours drive from the cottage.

We loved it and are planning to go back...
