About the Owner

Hi, we're Richard & Saran. We loved Pembrokeshire so much when taking holidays, we moved here! We're passionate about the area and sharing this magical place with our guests. We live in next door in the Victorian cottage which became a shop serving locals until the 1960s after the Swan Inn next door (the holiday cottage) called last orders for the final time in 1926. So we're on site and here here to help if you wish, recommending great places to visit, otherwise we'll respect your privacy and leave you in peace and solitude to enjoy your break at your own pace, making the most of your own private 5 acres of gardens.

Guestbook comments from the manager

"You have truly created a piece of heaven in the Welsh countryside. So many perfect touches; the herb box & the firepit to name just two. Without hesitation we will recommend your beautiful cottage to all our friends & family. Thank you." The Lynham family.

"What a beautiful place to stay & what a beautiful part of the world. Breathtaking coastline and cute villages. Blessed with warm, dry summers days all week. We can't wait to come back. Richard & Saran are a wonderful welcoming couple, that have created the perfect getaway. The Swan Inn is the perfect place to stay. Hope to see you soon..."

Monique, Craig & Brett (London & Melbourne, Australia)

“We are so lucky to have found your beautiful cottage and will have fond memories for years to come. A lovely house, beautiful interior and very homely. Especially loved the beds and the log fire. The garden was a luxury to us, as well as all the games & BBQ, and Otto loved the night we lit the bonfire!" Jo, Jacqueline & Otto

Ideal, Dog Friendly Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Just back from a busy, but relaxing trip to Pembrokeshire. The Old Swan Inn provided us with a very cosy, clean and comfortable base, ideally located for us to explore yet another part of this stunning county. Richard and Saran made us and our two dogs feel very welcome. The cottage reflected a lot of care, love and attention in the way it has been restored and is presented to guests. The welcome packs for humans and canines were a lovely touch and the tips and advice on where to walk and areas to explore were really helpful. The layout and outside space was perfect for our dogs and enabled us to relax too. All in all, a great stay, thank you!

Pembrokeshire Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We couldn’t imagine staying anywhere else in the area. This is our second visit to the OLD SWAN INN and we have thoroughly enjoyed our week here again. We immediately felt relaxed on arrival. The cottage and all the homely touches are calming and tranquil and we really do feel spoilt in such a lovely house. We made plenty of use of the garden and were very fortunate with the weather. We can highly recommend Pembroke Castle, Stackpole Quay and Barafundle Bay, also Mwnt and Ceibwr beaches. Saran and Richard really go the extra mile and the Easter hamper was very much appreciated! We will be back!

Fantastic Cottage and Lovely Hosts

  • 5 of 5

The Old Swan Inn is one of the best cottages we have ever stayed. It is stylish, but very comfortable and we enjoyed all the small details such as the glasses on the bath, the "Swan" toaster and kettle and the great DVD collection. We also appreciated all the information for guests and your efforts to be as environmentally friendly as possible. The cottage was very clean (not the case everywhere) plus all your applicances/lights and clocks worked :-)

The welcome basket was lovely, not least for the Welsh specialities and we loved the fact that you even included a pack of biscuits for the dog. He loved the garden and the fact that he could fetch sticks first thing in the morning.

The situation was ideal for us, with great walking, good restaurants and pubs and the lovely nature reserve near Cardigan. I wish we could have stayed longer and we certainly hope to be back one day.

Thank you again for making us feel so welcome and for being so helpful. We had a fantastic time in Wales.

Beautiful cosy cottage in north Pembrokeshire

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful week in the Old Swan Inn! One we’ll always remember as the beautiful cottage where we got engaged! Lovely touches throughout and thank you for our home baked engagement treat! Gwen absolutely loved dining ‘al fresco’ and toddling about on the lawn! Your cottage is beautiful, we genuinely couldn’t have dreamt of a more fabulous place to stay. You have been so welcoming and kind to us this week we felt settled and spoilt the moment we arrived. Hope to return soon.

A little gem!

  • 5 of 5

A short week stay in a beautiful cottage. The bed was enormous and so comfy. Simple yet stylish decor. Saran and Richard who own the property were on hand for advice and information if you needed them but not all intrusive. A lovely welcome pack on arrival. The cottage is well situated to explore pembrokeshire and the surrounding area. We will certainly be back.

From the Owner

We spent three years looking for the perfect property in Wales, searching North, South, East, eventually finding that West was best! After viewing many 'ugly ducklings' we fell in love with The Old Swan Inn the moment we passed through the front door. We think, like many of our returning guests, that you'll fall in love with the place too.
