What Past Guests Are Saying
Wonderful family retreat
Clegyr Boia is a beautifully furnished, spotlessly clean and wonderfully authentic stone farmhouse, perfectly situated with views to St David's Cathedral and the sea. We have stayed here twice and will most definitely come again. My father-in-law wrote in the comments book: "take all previous comments and times them by 100; that is how much we enjoyed staying here!" - something we all agree with!

A fabulous farmhouse close to some beautiful beaches
A great place to stay down a quiet track in a beautiful corner of Pembrokeshire yet only 25minutes walk or < 5 minutes drive into St Davids with its famous cathedral, friendly pubs and one particularly good restaurant (Cwtch). Great for families and because of the twin stair cases which separates one of the bedrooms / bathrooms good for a family plus grandparents. Acres of very comfortable living space with a well equipped kitchen and a conservatory which allows one to enjoy the sun and views down to the sea when its a bit too cold to sit outside. Lots of great walks along the Pembrokeshire coastal path directly from the house and White Sands a fabulous surf beach is only 10 minutes drive.
A beautiful homely retreat for all ages.
Clegyr Boia was so much more than we imagined and we (mum, dad, toddler and grandparents!) were all genuinely sad to leave after our week stay. Whilst set back a little from the coast, the farmhouse is blessed with wonderful sea views. The bedrooms are light filled and spacious. The layout is especially practical for families with an open plan kitchen/dining area set away from the upstairs bedrooms to allow the very young, or tired, to sleep without disturbance. The farmhouse has been tastefully renovated and retains loads of interesting original features. And fans of local artist Jackie Morris, will appreciate the beautiful artwork which hangs throughout - what a treat. Thank you Jan and Robin for your informal hospitality and warm welcome.
The Clarkson family
Large comfortable cottage on the rugged Welsh coast
We have spent two weeks in this lovely cottage, and enjoyed every minute. The cottage has a large kitchen, spacious lounge with a log burner , a cosy conservatory, large room with a table and 4 bedrooms. We enjoyed the table tennis table and the country walks to Porth Clais and St. Justinians. Whitesands and Newgale are good beaches within easy reach by car. the narrow roads (with grass growing up the middle) are a challenge to drive along and care and courtesy are needed. Ideal roads for walking.
Excellent holiday cottage and location
Very helpful and prompt service from the owners when booking and staying.
House very easy to live in with everything a family needs. Lovely conservatory and spacious grounds. Feels very private.
St Davids area ideal for active holidays. Walking, swimming, surfing. Kayaking and cycling easily available using the equipment provided by the owners. Wildlife and flora beautiful. Concerts in St Davids Cathedral very enjoyable.

A lovely private holiday cottage in a wonderful location
We have been coming to Pembrokeshire for years and years and have stayed in numerous cottages in and around St Davids. Clegyr Boia is in our view the best cottage we have rented in the area. It is a lovely large modernised farmhouse which comfortably sleeps six adults. It has a lovely large kitchen / dining room, a large lounge, a seperate dining room and a conservatory. Outside is a lovely private garden with views over to St Davids and the sea.
Jan and Rob are great hosts and they went out of their way to ensure we had a really special holiday.
Relaxing hideaway in total comfort
Excellent spacious accommodation for all the family. We loved the quiet location yet within a few minutes cycle ride of St. Davids and all our favourite sections of coast. I liked the privacy of having a bedroom and bathroom a bit separate to the rest of the family, and particularly liked sitting in the conservatory with a cup of tea and a view of the sea when the wind was howling!

The most comfortable and well equipped holiday cottage.
We have just returned after a week at this cottage with our son and 5 year old grandson.We were welcomed by Jan and Rob who had left milk, wine and a gift of home made Welsh cakes. The cottage is very tastefully decorated throughout with everything that you could possibly want for a comfortable week. The log burner was ready laid to put a match to with logs stacked ready on the hearth and a further supply in the barn. The best thing for us was the raised snug area off the lounge which we designated as the toy area for our grandson so he could play happily alongside us but we were not walking over cars and Lego all week! Grandad also enjoyed sitting in the sun in the conservatory in the mornings to read his paper in peace. From the conservatory there was a view across St David's Cathedral to the town and in the opposite direction to the sea at Porth Clais.St Davids has excellent restaurants and tea shops noticeably The Bench and The Sampler and is only 1 mile from the cottage.The beach at Whitesands Bay is equidistant in the opposite direction and is wonderful for rock scrambling and games on a cold day, also for surfing for the physically active! We came straight home and checked out dates for next year's school holidays and have already booked for next February.

brilliant holiday house
The house and amenities were brilliant and the location was within half a mile of the nearest cove. Others were further away but still a pleasant walk. We used the beaches for surfing, sandcastle building, kite flying and relaxing, depending on our age. Some of us went further afield (half an hour by car) to rock climb and co-canyon. The age range was 3 to 63 and we all seven of us had a good time.
Hay on Wye
An idyllic cottage set in glorious surroundings.
The cottage and setting surpassed all our expectations. Situated within walking distance to both St David's and the cliff path, the house has views to the sea from the upstairs windows. Set on a farm track it is peaceful and private, with grassy garden surrounded by trees and hedges. The house is extremely well-appointed, with excellent facilities for extended families and groups. It has two staircases, one leading to double bedroom and ensuite, while the other leads to two double bedrooms and a smaller room with cot ... ideal for stays with other family members. The airy conservatory and outside eating area were also ideal for us with two sets of small children to watch.
We loved the house, hated leaving, and our hosts were friendly and helpful, providing us with a warm welcome in the form of flowers, milk, and welsh cakes, over and above basic supplies.
We look forward to returning!
Beautifully presented house in an area of outstanding scenery
Rented this property for one week in august 2009. It rained but we didn't care as the house was comfortable and large enough for the children to amuse themselves. We visit St Davids every year and have tried camping, hotels and self catering accommodation. Clegyr Boia is by far the most comfortable and prettiest place that we have stayed. It is both well equipped and ideally located - midway between the city and the sea. Already booked a fortnight for august 2010 and cannot wait...

A great place to share with family
Jan and Rob gave us a really warm pembrokeshire welcome and made sure we had everything we needed throughout our 3 week stay, right down to potatoes grown on their own land!
The farmhouse is in a beautiful situation with stunning views,it is off the beaten track, but still walkable to the sea and St. Davids. There are lots of interesting walks and places to explore;just right for a "famous five adventure" kind of holiday.
The property has been lovingly restored, with just the right mix of traditional farmhouse features and contemporary style and comfort (it made me want to go home and redecorate my own house top to bottom!). There are lots of different spaces in the house to hang out in, a lovely sun room off the kitchen to read in quietly, a huge table in the kitchen to feed the hoards and play games on, a cosy living room for curling up purposes and a games room for larking around in; something for everyone!
The bedrooms and bathrooms are beautifully decorated and very well fitted. The kitchen is a big sociable space ,very well equiped, and a pleasure to cook in.
St. Davids is great for eating out and mooching about and there are fantastic beaches all around for surfing ,kayaking and good old bucket and spade type fun.
We loved spending time there and felt so attached to the place that we booked it again for this year straight away- can't wait!
Isle of Man
lovely tastefully restored farmhouse for peaceful countryside a
We really enjoyed our family holiday in this beautiful location between the city and the sea . A great retreat for those who want to be in the countryside and within walking distance of the sea and lovely small city of St Davids with its superb cathedral.Several days we did not need the car as we could walk and cycle straight from the house in many directions in a traffic free environment .
Jan was very helpful and flexible and supplied bikes and kayaks. The house was decorated very tastefully in calming tones ,with cosy wood burning stove and sunny conservatory . Different places to sit ,play etc makes it very good for large families .
My only hesitation in recommending is that the reader may book it before we do !
A great place to stay in exactly 500 characters!
All the other cottages run by Jan and her husband were occupied by 'returning guests' the week that we visited Clegyr Boia. Within 5 minutes of arriving at their newest holiday home it was easy to see why.
This cottage is equipped, furnished and renovated to the highest of standards providing its visitors with all the comforts of modern life within the environs of a beautiful old Pembrokeshire farmhouse. Solid oak floors, stone walls & slate roofs combine with a modern kitchen, flat-screen television/CD player, contemporary furniture & newly fitted modern bathrooms to offer comfort and character in equally high measure.
Perfectly situated in the middle of St David's peninsular, this is a great base for explorers of that part of the Pembrokeshire Coastal Path with north, west & south coasts all an easy walk away. It is also within a walk of St David's City which means an over-indulgent dinner in one of its fine restaurants can be walked off without fear of bothering the local contabulary. (Try Cwcth or The Bench would be my recommendation).
During the daytime you might want to combine picking up your car with a trip to the 'City' to tour the Cathedral or visit one of a number of shops that sell the sort of goods that make ideal souvenirs or gifts for loved-ones back home.
Three generations of my family visited Clegyr Boia for our week and all found activites, walks & expeditions to suit their respective ages, interests and physical capabilities. The table tennis table was a success with all generations whilst some of the tougher walks were only embarked on by the younger members and, of course, the dog.(Well behaved dogs are welcome).
I highly recommend Clegyr Boia which genuinely surpassed my expectations and 'Yes' we have booked again for 2010 and keenly await the beautiful countryside and fresh air almost as much as we look forward to the chilled bottle of Sauvignon Blanc in the fridge - and fresh Welshcakes that were welcome gifts from the owners.
