“People’s lives are so hectic these days with work, school and so many distractions, it’s great to see families spending quality time together,” she said.

“It’s also about doing things together – we see children’s confidence grow while they’re on holiday as they get to experience the new and many adventures that Wales has to offer, with mum and dad there to share in these experiences too.

Clydey Welcome The Logans

“We had a fabulous week at Clydey Cottages, in fact it’s impossible to pick a highlight, from the mountain biking, the horse riding, the pool and jacuzzi that were much used, the animal feeding with Farmer Malcom which was the best way ever for Lois to start the day, and the lovely walks, we had an action packed yet incredibly relaxing week. We got to know a beautiful part of Wales that we hadn’t been to before and met some wonderful people. I am pretty sure we will be back”. Gabby Logan (stayed in Bramble Cottage Oct 2014)

Adolygiad hyfryd, diolch i Gwyn a Nesta

Hwn oedd ein hail ymweliad a Chlydau. Bu’r tro cyntaf yn brofiad mor bleserus – yr awyrgylch a’r adnoddau mor syrfdanol – roedd yn ormod i ddisgwyl i’r ail dro fod cystal. Nid felly o gwbl! Gallwn ddweud yn ddiffuant i’r ail ymweliad ragori hyd yn oed ar y cyntaf. Un o’r rhesymau amlwg am hyn yw fod Clydau yn datblygu yn barhaus. Roedd decor ein bwthyn -Bramble – mor ffres, heb ddim ol traul arno, roedd yr ystafell chwarae, gyda’i hamrywiaeth eang o degannau a gweithgareddau, yn nefoedd ar y ddaear i’n wyr dwyflwydd oed.

Roedd yno naws gymdogol ar y safle ymysg y teuluoedd oedd wedi dod o bob cwr o Brydain, a theimlid hyn ar ei orau bob bore yn ystod y gweithgaredd bwydo’r anifeiliaid. Roedd gallu Ffermwr Malcolm I gofio enwau pob un o’r deuddeg plentyn yn dangos cynhesrwydd a brwdfrydedd tuhwnt.

Hawdd deall pam fod cymaint o’r rhai oedd yn aros yno yn dod yn ol bob blwyddyn, ac hynny o bellter. Mantais ein teulu ni yw ei fod yn ddigon agos i ni bicio yno am dridiau a mwynhau harddwch a thawelwch cilcyn arbennig o Gymru.

Cots & Cottages

West Wales ideal for new Prince of Wales

THE dribble-smattered fun starts here for William and Kate.

In the coming days, the Duchess of Cambridge may well step out in a flattering dress — probably a £70 number from Zara — but from now on she will be accessorising her look with little Prince George… and a small patch of vomit.

Life for the royal couple has changed for ever. And I know how they feel. My wife and I have a three-month-old daughter and I freak out as strangers stop me in the supermarket with a profound: “Ooooh, isn’t she little!”

See… exactly the same public obsession as the royals experienced facing the massed banks of snappers outside the Lindo Wing.

So Wills and Kate might want to escape the madness on a baby-friendly break — and they should head to Clydey Cottages in West Wales. After all, it must be nice for Wills to be able to go somewhere and say: “My dad’s the prince of this country.”

Clydey Cottages really has got the lot. It is 15, four and five-star homes on two sites in the fields of North Pembrokeshire — ten at Clydey, five at Fron Fawr.

Kate and Wills are obviously used to the finer things in life and the decor and finish of the cottages will suit them down to the ground.

We stayed in Heather Cottage at Clydey — which fits two adults and two children — and it is all wooden beams and wood-burning stoves. But the lounge has a lovely big telly and wifi is available all over the site.

Each cottage has a fabulous contemporary kitchen and gigantic, comfortable beds. Kate and Wills do not have to just take my word for it — entertainment royalty Vernon Kay and Tess Daly have visited with daughters Phoebe and Amber. ’Nuff said!

Clydey is perfect for children and little touches such as being able to prebook kiddie extras — baby monitors, bottle sterilisers, stair gates — makes things so much easier for parents without flunkies.

Outside the cottage, there is so much to enjoy.

Little Prince George might be too young to fully appreciate the daily animal feeding routine with Farmer Malcolm but I bet Wills and Kate would love to muck in.

Our little one, Madeleine, did not really know what was going on but other toddlers went mad collecting eggs and giving scraps to pygmy goats Zig and Zag and donkeys Noah and Nellie.

The highlight of the animal offerings, though, is Iggle, the gigantic kunekune pig. He will undoubtedly be the ugliest thing Kate and Wills have ever seen but he has beautiful ginger eyelashes that would make Prince Harry jealous.

And animals are just the start of Clydey’s top-notch facilities. There is an indoor swimming pool, playroom, sandpit, climbing frame and swings — plenty to keep children entertained.

For grown-ups, there is a sauna, games room and outdoor hot tub. An evening in the hot tub slurping on something chilled as you take in the views of the Welsh countryside is well worth booking a babysitter for and they can easily be sorted through Clydey’s wonderful owners Jacqui and Dewi Davies.

There is also a spa room offering a range of treatments. Wills, I can recommend the 90-minute aromatherapy full body massage — you must be shattered. Oh… and Kate might like it too.

The spa also offers baby massage tuition and the lovely Rhian came to our cottage and taught us techniques to ease colic, clear congestion and help Madeleine relax.

Away from Clydey, there are plenty of bracing walks to help the royal newbie drift off to sleep and a number of beaches to give them that first seaside experience.Impressive Poppit Sands, with a large beach and rock pools, is ten miles south but we preferred to go north for the incredible views and cliff-top walks at Tresaith.

The cottages are self-catered but you can buy things such as bread, milk and eggs — fresh from the Clydey chickens — on-site.

The Nag’s Head in nearby Abercych does lovely grub. For something posher, the Harbour Master Hotel in Aberaeron — about a 45-minute drive away — fits the bill. You will need a babysitter but the food and quayside location are stunning.

The £30, three-course evening menu is hardly a king’s ransom, especially if you go for the beautiful local lobster.

We will go back when Madeleine is a little bit older so she can take full advantage of the wonderful activities on offer.

But, by George, there is no denying this is a family-friendly holiday fit for a future king.


Clydey Cottages Wins Gold Award at Pembrokeshire Tourism Awards 2013


For the third time in succession, Clydey Cottages have scooped a top award in The Pembrokeshire Tourism Awards which took place on Friday, April 19th at Beggars Reach Hotel, Burton, Milford Haven in Pembrokeshire. Once again, Clydey Cottages won the Gold Award in the Best Non-Serviced Accommodation category, to add to the Awards won in both 2009 and 2011.

We are absolutely delighted to win this Award again and would like to thank all of our staff for their hard work and determination – it’s a real team effort that has made Clydey what it is today. To win three times in succession is such an achievement and makes all of the hard work worth while. We would also like to thank Folly Farm for sponsoring the award this year (photo with owner Chris Ebsworth below), along with our guests for the wonderful feedback and reviews they have given us, all of which impressed the judges and undoubtedly helped us to win.

Minister’s visit to award-winners


During a tour of some of Pembrokeshire’s premiere accommodation providers Edwina Hart AM – Minister for Business, Enterprise, Technology and Science visited the award winning Clydey Cottages Pembrokeshire in Boncath near Cardigan.

In recent years, Clydey Cottages have won ‘Best Self-Catering Accommodation in Pembrokeshire’ two years running and were awarded ‘Best Place to Stay in Wales’ in their category of large self-catering, in the National tourism Awards for Wales.

The Minister congratulated Dewi and Jacqui Davies on achieving these awards.

Mrs Hart said: “I was very impressed with the high standards of accommodation and the amenities offered at the idyllic Clydey Cottages and can appreciate why so many families return year after year. The picture postcard location, combined with the impressive facilities and friendly team of dedicated staff led by Dewi and Jacqui, all contribute to a high quality visitor experience in the heart of the west Wales countryside.”

Dewi and Jacqui have continually re-invested to ensure that guests receive the very best that self-catering in Pembrokeshire has to offer and pride themselves on being a very personal, family run business.

Jacqui said:” Here at Clydey Cottages, we offer the complete package; the dream of country cottage living. We set off right from the start wanting to create an environment that we would wish to go on holiday to ourselves and with 3 young children of our own, our focus is on providing quality, fun-filled family holidays. We strive to make Clydey Cottages particularly child and family friendly and have put things in place to keep everyone happy, entertained and enthralled.”

Comedian Simon Day’s testimonial

As soon as you get out of the car and look around, you are met with a feeling of peace and security at Clydey. The cottages are set in beautiful landscape , with stunning views across pembrokeshire [I tripped over once looking at the hills].


The cottages themselves are equipped with everything you need kitchen wise along with comfortable bedding, satellite tv and wi fi but still retain their original character.

Our kids were very content here, not surprising considering there is a an indoor swimming pool , games room and soft play area. There are also a number of animals including goats and lambs and chickesimonday1_4ns to feed which they loved.

Dewi and Jacqui are great hosts , always available for questions and new kettles , but never getting in the way.
The surrounding countryside is incredible: forests; rivers; sandy beaches and villages here and there consisting of a chapel and three houses. This is real Wales and all the better for it.

At night when the kids have finally gone to sleep you can sit in one of the jacuzzis and look at the stars, perfect, I cannot recommend this place enough.

Simon and his family stayed in Honeysuckle Cottage in April 2012.

The cottages are divine – soo cosy and comfortable, like a home from home and hosts, lovely Jacqui and Dewi’s eye for detail when it comes to your comfort is second to none – we wanted for nothing.

The Importance Of Good Doors

A man’s castle is his home – and it needs to be fully customized and optimized to suit all the owner’s needs. However, as different as many aspects and wishes might be regarding the type of furniture, kitchen tile, shower or bath tub decisions might be for home owners, there are common elements everyone is looking for.

What Makes For A Good Home  

Having a garage or parking space and beautiful, sturdy front/back/side doors are a couple of these common demands of must-have amenities. The initial stage of design planning needs to focus on the creation of additional floor space that can be fully used by the owners. Less wasted materials are also part of the deal when it comes to the American Design Gallery building strategies. Special attention needs to fall on the basement– designers here create preplanned basement spaces that can be further redesigned and expanded. Plant shelves, roof trusses, and roof pitches raised up on front elevations for more appealing deigns, walk-in closets, and porches that are fully covered are a few of the trends a great house can incorporate.


Quality wooden doors are versatile, they look great and they are sturdy; steel doors make for excellent security choices, while fiberglass doors do not need any maintenance, are rough and work well in humid climates. Your front entrance is more importance than a side or back door as it catches the attention of everyone passing by your house from the street; so make sure the lock on it is sturdy, of high quality an installed by a professional. If you need help, visit website  pages and get in touch with a team of professional locksmiths no matter where you live. Lockmsith Key will provide you with licensed, bonded, and affordable rates no matter what service you might be interested in so you can make sure your new house is fully secured before you move in.
