About Chris & Clare Yeandle

We bought Valley View Cottages in March 2016 after a long search for a suitable “lifestyle” business. We fell in love with the property within minutes of arriving on a beautiful sunny day in August 2015.

Clare has a passion for craft work especially hand painting old furniture to give it a new lease of life and you may find some examples in your cottage when you stay! Chris, having worked in manufacturing for 25 years is looking forward to sprucing up the grounds, growing vegetables and generally just spending as much time outside as possible.

Chris is a keen cyclist, both on and off road so will be able to advise on suitable routes for cycling visitors, whilst both Clare and Chris are keen walkers (along with Milo).

The original owners, Jim and Sarah moved to West Wales in October 2007, after relocating from Maidenhead



Berkshire in search of a ‘Life in the Country’. The property they found comprised of two Welsh stone barns and a detached house sitting in 3 acres of gardens and woodland, with amazing views across surrounding fields and valleys. The barns needed a huge amount of work in order to turn them into luxury holiday cottages, but plans were quickly drawn up and planning was granted at the end of March 2008. Work began immediately.

When you come to Valley View Cottages for your holiday, you will be guaranteed a very warm welcome from us and our small but very friendly dog Milo.

We are very fortunate to be surrounded by superb wildlife, namely the magnificent buzzards which we have living in the woods at the top of the trac

Chris & Clare Yeandle purchased this cottage in 2016

Why Chris & Clare Yeandle chose Boncath

Buzzards watch is a one-bedroomed cottage on two-levels, with the open-plan living area/kitchen located upstairs to take advantage of the superb views across the valley and to catch the evening sun. There is a patio area with garden furniture and an enclosed lawn area surrounding the cottage plus a little bistro table and chairs at the top of the stairs so you can capture the sun no matter what time of the day.

What makes this cottage unique

All the properties have views across the beautiful valley, including a footpath into the woods taking you to a number of locations. We are within walking distance of a great pub with friendly locals and landlady along with great food. Local towns and beaches within 20 minutes drive which will leave you wanting more each time you visit!

Fantastic cottage far from the madding crowd.

  • 5 of 5

This cottage has all the comforts a traveller could possibly want.....clean comfortable bed, plenty of space, full size fridge, dishwasher, washing machine and peace and quiet......except for the friendly sheep in the paddock next door who let you know they are there every now and then.

Wifi and TV reception is quite satisfactory considering the location of the cottage and the host is conscientious about recycling, providing separate bins in the kitchen. We found this cottage to be the perfect base to explore the Pembrokeshire Coast NP.

Owner's Response: Thank you Diana for your lovely review. We are glad you found Buzzards Watch comfortable and clean - we aim for our guests to feel like the cottages are a home from home. We try to recycle as much as we can and have cut down on plastic usage by now supplying milk in glass bottles. Thank you for the wifi mention as our lovely rural location can mean coverage is a little patchy on occasions.... but that is all part of the charm. Thank you again for your lovely review and for leaving the cottage so clean and tidy - Best Wishes Clare and Chris

Lovely property in a lovely location

  • 4 of 5

This is a lovely property. On arrival we were greeted by Chris who told us were the keys were and how to get in, etc. This is one of few properties that we have stayed in that had the heating on and was warm for when we arrived. A warm welcome is always nice. Once inside the property you are welcomed by some lovely cake, tea, coffee & milk.

We had pretty much everything we needed here, a real home from home. All the utensils and pots you could need were there. One thing we would have like was some washing up liquid, however this wasn't a big issue as we bought some when we were next in a supermarket. We were provided with dishwasher tablets, however we do prefer to wash up as we go. We were also provided with washing powder which was a nice extra.

We had full control of the heating which is always a plus. The bed was very comfortable.We were left plenty of towels and wash stuff in the bathroom. It was a fantastic couples retreat with brilliant views.

One thing that slightly let the property down for us was the internet and tv signal. The internet was the main issue for us. The rare time that we could see the wifi signal it was only 1 bar of signal which we couldn't stay connected to for very long. We also had no phone signal. We like to walk during the day, however if we want to change our plans we do rely heavily on internet access to this. Having barely any internet access nor phone signal did prove quite challenging. The tv signal was also a bit hit and miss. Some nights we got all the channels, other nights we only had signal on a few.

Overall we did enjoy our stay here. We would definitely recommend the property and return if we were to stay in the area again.

Thank you for a pleasant stay.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. We are so glad you had a good stay here at Valley View Cottages, we pride ourselves in making our guests stay as comfortable as possible so firstly i would like to apologise for the lack of washing up liquid - that must have been an oversight as we always supply that, along with such things as kitchen roll, clingfilm, foil and as you mention dishwasher tablets. As far as the wi-fi and phone signal, yes the small price we pay for living in this beautiful rural retreat - mobile signal is sketchy. With the wifi -It is the broadband which is the issue - we are constantly hassling BT regarding this and are almost at the point of switching on the fibre to premises but until that point, the very limited band width is a problem, although it seems to be unpredictable as can also be fine! Many of our guests relish this but we certainly appreciate that if you wish to look something up on the internet for your next days activities it can be an issue. Thank you again and kind regards Clare and Chris

La campagne au calme

  • 5 of 5

Le cottage est très bien équipé et tout était parfait.

Les propriétaires sont très sympathiques et à l'écoute de nos besoins.

Nous avons vraiment apprécié le pack bienvenue pour le petit déjeuner qui nous a évité de courir faire des courses dès notre arrivée (et le gâteau était vraiment délicieux )ainsi que les oeufs de la ferme voisine.

L'endroit est très calme et retiré mais nous avons trouvé très facilement grâce aux indications très claires fournies par Chris.

Il y a beaucoup de documentation sur les endroits à visiter et les activités à faire ainsi que de bons conseils dans le classeur de Clare pour les courses et autre.

A recommander sans hésitation
