(1) although it is not guaranteed it would of been nice to have a received a simple welcome pack upon arrival such as bread, milk etc.. (2) central heating needs looking at as not all radiators work (3) the cottage information pack could be more detailed with some additional information from the owners regarding how the appliances work instead of just putting the instruction manuals in the pack, e.g. handwritten instructions that the recycling dustbin contents need to be placed in an orange bag found under the sink. (4) the area is quite depressive and surrounded by other properties which is not clear from the pictures in the brochure looking out over the river although the coastline is excellent (5) you would not enter the nearest pub advertised unless it was for a bet ( one of a house block turned into a pub) and this should be pointed out, as when it is advertised a pub is in walking distance, it is never mentioned in brochures the actual name of the pub for people to check (presume in this property's case it could affect the booking sale if the pub nearby was mentioned and it was an important aspect of the holiday) (6) picture of the property parking slope at the side of the house is very deceiving from the brochure picture as it is very steep

Just back from a 7 day stay in this fabulous cottage ~ more spacious than the picture images show. On arrival the cottage was spotless and the 'welcome pack' of wine & welsh cakes was a very nice touch. The location of the cottage is set in a housing area, but once in the cottage itself, overlooking the estuary and open fields, you could be anywhere. The kitchen is large & very well equipped with virtually everything you would need. The bedrooms are all spacious and tastefully decorated with lots of storage room and very comfortable beds. The garden is on 2/3 levels, perfectly safe for our 2 children & our 2 dogs. I would highly recommend this cottage to anyone considering a stay in Pembrokeshire.
Mr Hunt

Herons Reach is a lovely, well equipped property in a good location. The property owner is helpful and friendly.
Mrs Dibley
June 2016
It was great, after a day exploring, to have a well equipped home, giving us choices to cook at home or go out, a garden to spend time in and plenty of space. We enjoyed looking at castles and coastal walks.
Mr Turton

The house was very welcoming and we felt like it was a home from home.

Mrs Clarke

We were given a wonderful welcome and enjoyed a lovely holiday. Heron's Reach was well thought out and well catered for. There were lovely views from the house and overall we had a great time.
Mr Powell

November 2014
A lovely property ideally situated for the Pembrokeshire area. Like a home from home. Excellent variety of kitchen equipment to suit big parties. I would recommend this property and will probably use it again myself when visiting Pembroke dock.
Mr Jones
November 2014
The cottage was a very good base to explore the area, all amenities were available. The dog enjoyed his stay and liked swimming in Barafundle Bay. The scenery was stunning and all in all it was a very relaxing holiday.

This holiday cottage is equipped with everything you'd ever need. The location & views are brilliant. Child & pet friendly. The agent & the owners were excellent in the information that was provided. The booking was straightforward & the discount provided was a lovely surprise when booking. They even altered their normal letting week to suit our needs. This cottage is top of my list for any future trips to Pembrokeshire.
Mr Adsley
October 2014
A large, warm, comfortable property with every convenience you could wish for. It was in a very quiet position with lovely views over the river. Centrally located it was easy to visit many places of interest. We would highly recommend.
Mrs Clarke

Mrs Clarke

We had a fabulous stay at Herons Reach. Lovely garden for enjoying the scenery. Will come back asap.
Mrs Stubbs
September 2014
The cottage/bungalow was an excellent base from which to explore Pembrokeshire. With seven adults and one child there was ample space to relax. The wealth of literature about the area was very extensive. In fact, exploring the premises and finding all the facilities added to the pleasure of our stay. We certainly want to return, if only to relax. Tremendous value.
Mr Dobbs
August 2014
We were two families and with bedrooms on ground and upper floors, it was nice to have that privacy.
August 2014
had my doubts at first I.e. the area (Pembroke DOCK) but i could not have been more mistaken, this house is way more than i expected with its view of the estuary and inside its space and rooms need more than five stars, and the area is great , good shops and pubs, plenty of walks from the house, i think the dock area is better than Pembroke its self, we are deferentially going to book this place again.
December 2013
A family friendly house with enclosed gardens was a big plus for people with young children. The advantage of having 2 ground floor double bedrooms was also a bonus for elderly relatives with bathroom facilities also on ground floor. Our visit was enhanced by the owners personal touches. The house was also decorated very tastefully with Christmas tree and various other Christmas features. The views were very good.
Mrs Firth
October 2013
The house was very spacious, easily accessible, lovely views and very well furnished.
Mrs Van Zwieten
October 2013
The house was amazing. So spacious, luxurious and well equipped. The caretakers, were so helpful, and look after the property very well. It was spotlessly clean and welcoming. The location provides an ideal base for exploring the beautiful Pembrokeshire coast and countryside. The owners have provided a real home from home. It was a pleasure to spend a week in such a lovely holiday house. All in all, we had a wonderful holiday!
Mrs Moore
September 2013
We were very impressed by the house. It was spacious, stylish and very comfortable, and probably the best self catering house we have rented in the area. The owner and the caretaker were very helpful. It made a good base for visiting some of our favourite places in Pembrokeshire. We would certainly book it again.
Mrs Evans
August 2013
The house was very well equipped and of very high standard.
August 2013
We booked this place for a week's stay in hopes that it would be better than the last cottage we stayed in last summer (the fridge broke upon arrival, the area was extremely isolated next to a dangerous busy road and there were flies everywhere due to windows being left open in the heat, which led us to leave a day early). We are on the final day of our stay and we have loved every minute. The property is situated in Pembroke Dock, not far from places like Tenby and Haverfordwest. There is a lovely view of the water from the back, although it is slightly obscured because of a housing development blocking parts of it. The house is brilliantly furnished with comfortable beds, sofas and chairs and includes WiFi and Sky television. The are two bathrooms; one downstairs and one upstairs. The one downstairs contains a power shower and a jacuzzi bath (which we loved using). There are plenty of taped notices on walls and doors stating where to find things and how to use appliances such as the oven and BBQ grill (although the grill wasn't working when we stayed here so we didn't use it). The back garden was spacious and just perfect for the dog to wander. The only thing we had a problem with was the noisy neighbors at the bottom of the garden, but that is no fault of the property and there was nothing we can do. The doors were pretty difficult to open at times. Overall, we've had a lovely time and are sad to be leaving tomorrow. It's been a great holiday!
Mr Bray

The owner and caretaker have gone to great lengths to make sure everything is just perfect for you and offer great value for money, Fantastic kitchen and luxury bathroom. nice secure garden for the dog to play in and the Full Sky HD package and unlimited wifi. All in all very hard to pick fault with the property.
May 2013
Firstly The property is Amazing, a lovely warm welcome from the caretaker who lived over the road from Heron's Reach and who was always available thoughout our stay. All the other comments on this property are true and I can't fault them at all and it was due to these comments that I booked this property. The luxury bathroom, the luxury Kitchen the full Sky HD package on the TV. Internet access, everything has been thought of and supplied and it was so nice to open the back door and allow our dog to have the run of the garden knowing it was secure.. This place really does have the 'Wow' factor that stays with you for the entire length of your stay. The surroundings however are a little to be desired and may of changed quite a bit since the first review on here. Firstly the view from the garden is now only 50% of what it was a few years ago due to a new housing devolpment blocking what must of been amazing scenery. Secondly the nearest pub, in fact the 2 nearest pubs have now closed down, as well as the nearest Supermarket and the nearest Fish & Chip Shop. (The nearest shop and pub are now a 15 minute uphill walk away) If you are looking for a property in Pembroke Dock area then this place is a must. the property gets a 10 out of 10 from me.. The area scrapes in at 4 out of 10

A really clean comfortable holiday home, the kitchen was the best equipped we've ever had! The jacuzzi bath so relaxing and the location of the property is ideal for reaching all parts of the Pembrokeshire coast. A real gem that we would recommend to anybody. Another fantastic holiday with Sykes.

The cottage is very comfortable with everything catered for. Very well furnished and layed out. would stay here again next year as it is dog friendly and the jacuzzi is a nice touch. nice welcome pack(bottle of wine ,biscuits and milk) , and the views from the cosy lounge are wonderfully. Well done mr and mrs Goode .
September 2012
The house was lovely. Fantastic facilities. Best place to visit is the Folly Farm. Both adults and children enjoyed the day. Pembroke castle is also lovely. The only problem we had was with the caretaker. When she arrived she took one look at our small dog and said that dogs were not allowed in the bedrooms or if they had to be in the bedroom they were not allowed on the beds. She then bent down to speak to the dog who promptly ran away. She said "oh I see the dog is as obedient as the children". Now this woman did not know us and in the space of 5 minutes had insulted my dog and my children. And things didn't get much better. We discovered their were no towels and when we contacted her about it she said that they had towells but they were only for the use of overseas visitors. The last time I checked Northern Ireland and Wales were separated by the Irish Sea. When we pointed this out she gave us towells but asked us to wash them!! The final incident was on the last day. Checkout is 10 (earlier than any other property we have visited (this being our eighth year of hiring houses for holidays)) and we were just finishing up when she arrived with another lady at 10.03. They immediately went upstairs and started to strip beds. We were trying to lift the last of our stuff and I asked if she could give us 20 mins then we would be totally finished and out of their way completely. She stiffly replied "well it clearly states checkout is at 10". I said I am well aware of that but when you have two small children who didn't want to get out if bed this morning we are trying our best. She said that she would be back at 10.30. We got cleared up and were leaving the property at 10.27 and to be honest we didn't even say goodbye. She only lived 2 doors down so it was not as if she had to travel far. I just want the owners of the property know as I am sure the comment book we left has not had out comment page removed.

A fantastic holiday in wonderful surroundings. The cottage was absolutely beautiful with all modern amenities. Could not ask for more. The views were inspiring and all the attractions were within a short drive.
Mrs Gentle
July 2012
The outlook was beautiful, quality of the furnishing and kitchen was to a very high standard.
Mrs McGaughey
July 2012
The house was lovely, the kitchen was great and the jacuzzi bath was a luxury. The property had a lovely view and there were lots of activities for young and old. Our groups ages ranged from 5 to 63 and the best day out was at Folly Farm as the kids enjoyed the animals and the amusements and the adults enjoyed the amusements as they were very nostalgic. Nearby Pembroke Castle is a must see and Tenby is a beautiful wee village.
Mr Bradley
July 2012
We really enjoyed the homeliness and decor of the property and found it a very relaxing and comfortable stay. The owner was very helpful and answered any issues. We enjoyed finding and taking the dogs to various beaches.
Mr Blackman

Yet another fantastic family holiday at Herons Reach, a lovely warm welcoming property. We'll be back again
Mr Wilkinson
June 2012
Great property in a good location for exploring Pembrokeshire. Property good for relaxing and winding down after a day exploring the coasts.
April 2012
the view was excellent - caretaker on hand when needed - hue clean and comfortable - the sky and internet connection were 100 out of 100 - it was the same as I have at home and so could work ok allowing me to watch sports and my wife to watch films also gave me access to my work which was of paramount impotance - would return again which says it all
January 2012
Herons Reach - the best Holiday Cottage I have stayed in. Very well equipt. Beautiful views of the estuary and lovely gardens. Ideal for elderly / disabled with two downstairs bedrooms and a bathroom. Two further upstairs bedrooms with excellent views. Highley recommended. Will be back
Mr Maddox

Excellent accommodation. Delightful views and beautiful garden. Will be returning soon. The caretakers were very helpful.
Mrs Jones
October 2011
This was our second visit and we loved the view and location. The overall support from the caretakers was very good. We were given advice about where to go to eat and how to get shopping delivered to save time. A home-from-home for the four generations staying together
Mrs Johnston
August 2011
The house was like a home from home, very comfortable. The house is in a great location to explore Pembrokeshire and we would recommend it to anyone. Thanks for a great holiday home.
August 2011
This was the most comfortable, well appointed chalet we've rented. The views from the lounge were spectacular. The cottage was well located for touring along the south west coast to St Davids and above and also eastwards through Tenby; Saundersfoot to the Gower (80 miles away). The garden area could have been tidier, but it had great views of the estuary and was enclosed to allow safe pet access.
Mrs Bullman
July 2011
Our third time at Herons Reach. It is the perfect setting for a relaxing and thoroughly enjoyable holiday. Cottage is first class. Looking forward to visit no 4!

Chrissie Leggett
January 2011
Picture perfect - tastefully decorated with everything you could possibly need at hand. The owners and caretakers were extremely helpful and kind with files full of helpful information. Central location for Pembroke Castle, Tenby and The Lilyponds at Bosherton , to name but a few. The garden was tiered and just very pretty (yes even in Nov). The only downside was the view was slightly spoilt by new homes built just below the property.
Mrs Leggett
November 2010
What a gorgeous place to visit - it was 'home from home'. We could not have asked for anything more - we just loved it. Would definitely recommend this to friends and family as a 5* place to stay. Loads to see and do then relax in the evening after a busy day out. Visited the beautiful Lily Ponds, Broad Haven Beach, Tenby Beach and of course Pembroke Castle (great to visit even in November). Many thanks to the wonderful owners.
Mrs Clark
September 2010
The excellent views from the picture window. Everything was brilliant - absolutely fabulous place.
Mrs Courtney

Fantastic garden, lovely kitchen and great open plan living and dinning. The Sky package and WIFI was also a great bonus and the children loved the jacuzzi bath!
Mrs Cook
July 2010
This property is the best holiday rental that we have stayed in so far. The caretakers were very nice, friendly and extremely helpful. It was 'home from home' and the welcome pack was very nice too. All in all this a lovely property and a joy to stay in.
Mrs MacArthur

A beautiful property, delightful taste and elegance. 50 years after leaving this area, it is still as un-spoilt and delightful as ever.
Mr Clarke
June 2010
All six of us couldn't praise the property highly enough, everything about it was excellent. We also had extremely good weather which always helps. Plenty of local interest to visit. All-in-all would recommend to anyone.
Janet and Roy
June 2010
The accomodation was very spacious and nearly 'home from home'. Only complaint was the matress on two of the beds. Three couples, ourselves - two daughters and their husbands [together with their three dogs - with the agreement of the owners] had plenty of space and the garden was very dog friendly. Accomodation was welll placed for nearby excellent beaches and had good views over the estuary. House is located in an area which is under improvement. Caretaker, across the road, excellent, friendly and helpful.
Mrs Vanhaelst
April 2010
Definitely one of the best self catering houses we've ever had (and we have had a great many!!). Very well equipped, luxurious and tasteful furnishings, all modern comfort and the view across the estuary just fantastic. The location on the outskirts of Pembroke Dock was excellent. The house carers were very helpful and friendly and checked with us from time to time.
Mr Wheeldon
April 2010
The property was well situated for a number of excellent beaches and walks. It was very spacious and had all mod cons. Very dog friendly - we were 6 adults with dogs and had lots of space. Caretaker very friendly, welcoming and helpful, recommending some lovely places to visit.
April 2010
we had a great stay at this location, whenever we needed support or advice the support was there, the caretakers were helpfull and friendly. the house was modern, warm and compfrtable with all mod cons. the view kept us all happy for hours, we visited local places whcih were not too far. lots to do and see. the only difficulty we had was parking the car on the forcourt as it was steep, this didnt stop us having a good time.
Mrs Jones
March 2010
Cottage was warm and friendly. Even though the weather was bad it didn't make a difference, the views gave us hours of entertainment, as did the jacuzzi bath.
