"Perfect family holiday…"
We stayed at Clydey in August 2014, it had everything and more! Our children (ages 6,4.5, and 18 months) were never bored. Holidays with young children can often not quite feel like a holiday but that was not the case at Clydey! The facilities are superb and the staff are welcoming, friendly and will go out of their way to make your stay comfortable. We will most certainly return in the future.Read moreLess

"Fantastic place to holiday…"
After our third stay in 18mths we can't speakly highly enough of Clydey. We had the pleasure of being the first guests in their Ty Hen property in August and it was an absolute joy. We hope to come back again real soon.Read moreLess
"Fantastic Family Holiday!…"
We visited Clydey Cottages for the 3rd time this August and took my parents with us for their first ever self-catering holiday. Clydey surpassed all their expectations and we were able to have a wonderful week enjoying gorgeous views, fantastic facilities and some quality family time. The attention to detail is amazing, from the bottle of prosecco waiting for me in honour of my 40th birthday, to staff spending almost an hour changing the superking bed into twins for my parents on changeover day when I'm sure they had other things to do. We had an amazing day on Mwnt Beach - about 30 minute drive away, with views of dolphins out in the bay and then a short drive to St Dogmael's for excellent fish and chips which we ate in the grounds of the ruined abbey there. Otherwise the true highlight is animal feeding and egg collecting with Farmer Malcolm whose calm and caring presence makes him worth his weight in gold. This is the kind of holiday that childhood memories are made of.Read moreLess
"Wonderfully relaxing with lots to entertain the children…"
We had a lovely sunny week at Clydey! Tansy Cottage has excellent quality fittings, with plenty of space for 2 adults and 2 children. The views are spendid, the animal feeding went down a treat, then with swimming pool, soft play, games room - what more could you need?Read moreLess

"Luxurious, holiday heaven in a beautiful spot.…"
Sheer, luxurious, family-holiday-heaven in a beautiful spot in Pembrokeshire. The phrase ‘rural idyll’ was invented for it. We spent a wonderful week there with our two young sons and wished we’d spent two. They really have thought of everything – dreamy, chocolate-box cottages with every modern comfort you could wish for.Read moreLess

"Best family holiday yet, we booked for next year before we left...…"
Booking our holiday was effortless via the website and Jacqui was prompt at responding to our queries.
As I said to Jacqui when we arrived - we are quite fussy - but Clydey surpassed our expectations. My husband said it was nicer than the places we stayed on honeymoon.
We stayed in Ivy Cottage - perfect for the three of us. Our son celebrated his fifth birthday while we were on holiday at Clydey - and the chickens gave him a birthday card! Our cottage was gorgeous and had absolutely everything we needed. The setting and facilities are amazing-even nicer than the website depicts! I could go on and on...
If you want a brilliant holiday with a young family, book Clydey.Read moreLess
"Fantastic holiday for the family & cosy for couples too…"
We have holidayed here twice, first (Sept 2013) in Foxglove Cottage which was lovely & cosy with our little girl on a comfy (for me too!) fold out bed at the the end of ours. Second time with the grandfather over from NZ - 2 bed cottage: one up, one down, so personal space for all. 'Papa' took great delight taking granddaughter to feed the animals in the morning (with the brilliant Farmer Malcolm who follows a routine that the children love and become familiar with, thus putting them at ease with the animals), and was continually dragged off to soft play,bikes and pool which was all good fun. Second time round we found even more to do outside of Clydey - beautiful countryside and lots of attractions - Teifi Valley Railway being a personal favourite for its quaint charm, the views you get to see on the train and for the wonderful people who run it. We have had 2 lovely relaxing holidays here. Everyone is very friendly when you meet them - usually animal feeding time - but at the same time you are barely aware of the other cottages the rest of the time. And the booking process is a dream - personalised contact with Jacqui and Dewi. Can't reccommend this holiday enough.Read moreLess

"Fantastic family holiday…"
Clydey Cottages and Fron Fawr are an amazing place for a family holiday - caters for young children but also great for adults to chill and relax too. Fantastic facilities, gorgeous scenery and comfortable cottages - the only downside was that we couldn't get our children to leave the site so we could explore Pembrokeshire!Read moreLess
We stayed at the Fron Fawr site attached to Clydey Cottages in June 2013. Overall it was a brilliant holiday, both for us and our 16 month old son. The Fron Fawr cottages are about 10minutes drive from the main site. It is very peaceful and a beautiful setting. The cottage had three bedrooms but the downstairs was small and really wouldn't have been suitable fir more than four at the most. It was well kitted out but overall parts looked a little tired and some updating would be good. This was the same for the outside kids play area and toys which all looked very old.
The same however cannot be said for the Clydey site that we visited frequently. The place is immaculate and so well thought out. Frozen Cook meals so you can have a 'night out' in your cottage and a brilliant DVD collection for young and old. The soft play and swimming pool were brilliant. There were so many toys our son looked quite confused! Sky sports in the soft play kept my husband happy!
The highlight has to be the animal feeding with Farmer Malcolm. We couldn't attend till later in the week but on meeting Malcolm on route to the animals he greater our son by name before we introduced ourselves. It is done brilliantly as all the children can feed safely out of bowls or off forks. Our son loves animals and the smile on his face made our holiday. Malcolm knew each child by name and was just brilliant with them.
The staff at Clydey were lovely and really made an effort to make you feel at home and that nothing was any trouble for them.
I feel for the Clydey site it is a five star but have given four because of the Fron Fawr site, if we can come back then we would definitely stay at Clydey so everything was on site.Read moreLess
"Relaxing family holiday…"
Clydey is simply the most relaxing place I have ever been to...in fact it is the only time I have relaxed on holiday since I have had small children!
It is all incredible....the staff, the animal feeding, the luxurious cottages and the amazing facilities.
Money very well spent, book it book it book it!Read moreLess
"Wales best kept secret.. Sshhhh don't tell everyone!…"
We have been visiting Clydey for the last 4 years & it really is perfect. Clydey is a cluster of 10 cottages from 1 to 4 bedrooms in the most beautiful part of West Wales. The cottages are all tastefully furnished with amazingly comfy beds & all have wood burners so very cosy in the evenings. There is a lovely wooded walk from the site if you want to burn a few calories. There is a heated indoor swimming pool, hot tub, sauna, games room, soft play & toys for the kids who can play whilst parents enjoy a complimentary hot drink on the sofa with magazines, free wi-Fi or TV. There is a games room with complimentary DVD & board games, laundry facilities & a freezer full of 'Cook' home made meals to purchase if you don't feel like cooking
There is daily animal feeding & egg collecting with farmer Malcolm which the kids love especially as the feeding ends at the outdoor play area where the children can play with the new friends they have made. The owners Jacqui & Dewi have so many repeat customers but they never just sit back & relax, they are continually looking for ways to improve the complex recently adding an on-site spa offering beauty treatments/massage etc & also a small shop attached to reception selling wine, cheese, sweets, local preserves, bread & pastries to name a few. Having children of there own they know what parents need. All the baby & toddler equipment you could think of is already there to use such as baby monitors, gates, cots etc (which saves lots of packing space in the car)
I am super fussy about cleanliness & hygiene but everything here is kept immaculate, there are no broken toys or dirty toddler equipment like other so-called family friendly places I have experienced! At first glance, It may seem expensive but it's worth every single penny. If you can tear yourself away from the site, there are some excellent beaches nearby (Llangranog & Tresaith 2 of our favourites) & also folly farm & oakwood not too far. Our little boy is growing up with the best childhood memories ever from our holidays here & he is always counting down the days until our next visit. We are all very much looking forward to stay number 8 this year at our favourite place. Thank you everyone at ClydeyRead moreLess

"5 Star & more, amazing cottage complex…"
We have been going to Clydey for the last 3 years & wouldn't dream of going anywhere else in Wales. Once you go here nowhere else will ever be good enough. Clydey is a cluster of 10 beautiful cottages ranging from 1 to 4 bedrooms in the most beautiful part of West Wales. There is a heated indoor swimming pool, hot tub, sauna, gym, games room, soft play & toys for little ones who can play safe whilst mum or dad enjoy a complimentary hot drink on a comfy sofa with magazines, free wi-Fi or TV. There is complimentary DVD & games library, laundry facilities & a freezer full of 'Cook' home made meals to purchase
My favourite place however is the outdoor hot tub, which overlooking the beautiful welsh hills is quite literally heaven on earth. There is daily animal feeding & egg collecting with farmer Malcolm which the kids absolutely love, the feeding ends at the outdoor play area. I have never read a single negative review about this place & the fact that the lovely owners Jacqui & Dewi have so many repeat customers is testament to this. They work really hard to maintain & improve the complex & deserve every award they receive. Having children of there own they are very much tuned in to the needs of families with young children in tow. Trust me, go there, you won't be disappointed. It may seem expensive but it's worth every single penny. Oh, also if you can bear to leave the cottages, there are some excellent beaches nearby & also folly farm & oakwood a pleasant drive awayRead moreLess
