About Barry and Christine Skidmore

Barry and Christine moved to Pembrokeshire in 2000 with their 2 children and 2 cats. They found their perfect home, surrounded by beautiful rural countryside, yet near all beaches and areas of Pembrokeshire. They settled at once and decided to transform the cottage next door from a very basic dwelling, into a cottage for their families and friends to stay in when visiting. Everyone was so enthusiastic about it, that they were encouraged to further upgrade it into a superb 4 star holiday cottage, so that tourists can stay and discover this beautiful part of Wales. From the wonderful comments left by the guests in the visitors book, they made the right choice and welcome all holiday makers, their families and dogs.

Barry and Christine Skidmore purchased this cottage in 2000

Rural Delight

  • 5 of 5

Had a relaxing stay in this clean and well equipped property. Located in a quiet country lane it was ideal for walking our dog before venturing out to the beaches, shops and castles nearby. Owners were friendly and helpful and left a lovely welcome tray of wine and easter eggs in the kitchen for us on arrival.

Beautifully presented. A real home from home.

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is superbly appointed and wants for nothing. Situated in a very quiet lane with plenty of walks if you have a dog. Loads of games, DVD's and books if you have Children. Very cosy and immaculate. Exceptional welcome pack from very thoughtful owners.

Great position for exploring all of pembtokeshire.

We had a lovely stay and would thoroughly recommend it.
