About Mark Deane

We live just outside the village of St Nicholas, which is quiet and very pretty. We like to walk the coast path, go kayaking, surfing, fishing and hack out on horseback, the Pencaer Peninsular is hallowed ground for that !

Mark Deane purchased this house in 2013

Why Mark Deane chose Pencaer

The whole place is crisscrossed with foot paths and bridleways through woods, up hills across moors and down to beaches. So much flora, wildlife and beautiful scenery, every season is so different here and brings out amazing variations for you to enjoy.

What makes this house unique

We made the house comfortable but not fussy, it is easy to keep tidy, just the sort of place we would like to stay at with a group of family or friends. Not just tidy, easy to keep clean, practical and comfortable, but also very good value for money.

A very well equipped house, lots of space and a very good, quiet location.

  • 5 of 5

A brilliant place to stay, so near beautiful beaches, Strumble Head and shopping, Fishguard and St David's. Very peaceful, ample car parking and space for the children to play. The house is well equipped and Mark even lay on fantastic weather for us. We eat in the garden each day. Ages from 4yrs to 73yrs all enjoyed themselves. Mark very helpful and the birthday ballon was much appreciated.

What a great place

  • 5 of 5

The house was just exactly as described, which is one reason I've given it 5 stars. It's not luxurious, but it doesn't claim to be. It is homely, well equipped, in a great location for beach days or coast walking, wonderful for extended family or multi generation holidays. There was good secure parking and garden space, as well as light airy rooms indoors.

The facilities were just what we needed, and everything looked well maintained, clean and fresh. The owners Mark and Cathy made us very welcome and gave us a load of useful information and tips about local places to go, especially with the children. They couldn't have been more helpful. We didn't need to call on them during the holiday, but it was a comfort to know they would have been on hand if we had needed any help.

I'd recommend a day in St Davids at the Oriel y Parc gallery with good food, the Cathedral, and also Whitesands Bay, Porthgain Harbour with brilliant fish and seafood bistro and good pub food, and Strumble Head is a must.

Clean and tidy, lovely location.

  • 5 of 5

This house was just perfect for our family half term holiday. The children really enjoyed the bunk room. The house is spacious and comfortable situated in the village. Take a trip up to Strumble Head the views are to die for ! If you are lucky you might even see a seal or two. We had no problems, Mark and Cathy were very welcoming and helpful. We hope to be back again next year !

We had a good time!

  • 3 of 5

We had no issues in reaching the property. We had a good time overall.

The only thing that we did not know was that all the rooms had twin beds.

The Good.

1. Excellent places and beaches to visit nearby.

2. Very good local pubs

3. Well maintained and clean property

4. Very helpful owners who took care of all our needs

What needs improvement?

1. Family beds for folks who have little kids.

2. Needs a washing machine

3. Add more DVDs to the collection especially for Kids, just in case.

4. Improve the quality of the mattresses and bedding in general.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the review Ashish, We are very happy that you had a good time. We work extremely hard to prepare the house for guests and keep such a large house that can accommodate so many people in good order. 3 stars is a bit harsh as this reflects our description of the house and customers expectations. We feel that the house is accurately described and we are not out to convince anyone it is not anything other that what it is. The house at the time of your stay had only twin beds it was clearly stated in the description. We now offer 2 double beds and a cot. Again we did not advertise a washing machine at the time of your stay, we have installed one now. DVD's, books and games etc are supplied by us as a courtesy, it is probably best to bring entertainment for any rainy days. We do renew sheets, bedding etc on a regular basis. Best regards, Mark
