What an amazing cottage. Lovingly restored to perfection. So comfortable with the highest quality of everything from bedding to the pots and pans! That view..... watching the weather, ferry bouncing around in the waves, rainbows, the birds... its magical. Our new happy place!
MISS LLOYD November 2023
The view from Station A is so memorably striking, so hugely broad, so jaw dropping, so beautiful, so changeable with the weather, so easily enjoyed outdoors and in, so totally unique - that it becomes so very hard to leave!
Mrs Brandt October 2023
Station A is an absolutely outstanding place to be.
Ms Mcgill October 2023
We really enjoyed our stay at Station A. It is very atmospheric and peaceful and wonderfully situated looking out to sea. The colours of the sky and countryside around were always changing. The sound of the pouring rain on the roof was great. The building felt everlasting and solid - even with quite a gale, it was very comfortable in Station A. We kept meaning to look at the sky, but it was cloudy - am sure the sky will be amazing on a clear night. We were delighted to see dolphins/ porpoises jumping about in the sea - although quite far away, you can see their surf. Station A was a very interesting and comfortable place to stay surrounded by beautiful countryside, sea and fresh air. It is very stylishly furnished. We would like to return one day.
Mrs Brattan September 2023
Absolutely gorgeous, quirky cottage with fabulous views. Tastefully decorated with high quality furnishings and features relevant to its background as a U boat listening station. Although having a small kitchen without a dishwasher or washing machine, this was necessary to keep the historical layout and did not compromise the enjoyment of our holiday. The four enormous windows in the living area have absolutely stunning views out to sea and Strumble Head, though we were lucky to have amazing weather and could enjoy the views from the two patio areas. A remote location, but only a short drive from Strumble Lighthouse and Goodwick. Would highly recommend!

Thank you for your wonderful review full of so much information for future guests. It sounds like Station A was a huge hit with you! Although it was originally thought to be an anti U-Boat listening station, through research and interviews with a former employee, it is now known that it was a radio wave research station. So much history! Donna, Customer Support

Mrs Dalton February 2023
Station A provides a stunning, isolated retreat with fantastic views over the coast. The accommodation is spacious and well appointed. The property provides an excellent base for exploring the coast on foot and is within reasonable reach of other places of interest in Pembrokeshire.
Mrs Lord October 2022
I would recommend this cottage as it was very comfortable and had great views of the sea . It is close to other pl;aces of interest and great for walks. The interior is very well equipped and designed in keeping with the period it was built in.

Mrs Wright August 2022
We loved everything about this place: so cleverly converted into a wonderfully comfortable living space. We especially loved the reclaimed wood, the use of slate, the period furniture, the colours, the position between the hill fort and the lighthouse, the history, the peace, the birds, the blackberries, and, above all, the mesmeric ever-changing view.
Mrs Donaldson August 2022
Station A is set in a glorious location and the views from the open plan living area are absolutely stunning. A remote and peaceful setting perfect for relaxing and wonderful walks. The property has been beautifully and thoughtfully decorated and furnished throughout. Only slight niggle is lack of dishwasher, freezer and washing machine.
MS Smith May 2022
Perfect location with beautiful coastal views and lots of great walks nearby only a short drive along the coast. We enjoyed the thoughtful design details in the property and learning about the history of the place. Walk-wise we would recommend Strumble Head Garn Fawr circular / St Davids east Caer Bwdy Solva / St Davids west Porth Clais Porthlysgi / St Justinians Porthselau Whitesands Bay / Porthgain Abereiddy. May was an excellent month to visit, with sunshine the whole week : ) We had never visited this area before but we will definitely be back!
Mrs Boston-Morgan May 2022
A truly unique place. Anyone who likes to stare at an incredible view from a place of warm comfort will not be disappointed! It's our second visit to Station A and I hope we return soon.
Mr Blackmore November 2021
A location full of history and outstanding nature.
Mrs Dalton October 2021
A unique and isolated retreat.
Mrs Greenwood October 2021
Our stay was for the second year running, in the same month, October. The property has stayed in very good condition, for example, the mattress is very supportive and the shower performs very well. It struck us on this visit, how sturdy the building is, and when we met the farmer neighbour, who described just how lively the weather gets, and hence, no trees about, we appreciated the solidity of the restored building and the quality of the glazing even more.
The views from the very large living area are beyond words, they are what drew us back this second visit, and being so near to the coast, there is a constant contrast between the skyline, the sea and the land, which can either be ever-changing subject to the weather, or very settled when the only movement will be the cattle and sheep shifting across the patchwork of fields below Station A. And the clear sky at night is star-studded with layers and layers of pinprick stars and swirling hazes of clouds. Locally, the walking is coastal and inland and is unlimited and a mix of gentle and dramatic. And very local Melin Tregwynt mill is one of the very few working woollen mills in old buildings, in Wales, tucked down a narrow winding tree-lined lane, and you can find out the technical and family history on site along with viewings of the modern looms at work, making beautiful products sold on site and in leading shops across the UK.
At Strumble Head, we saw and heard the stirring cries of a lone seal cub in a cove whilst two adult seals swam around the rugged inlets in a millpond sea at sunset, accompanying a lone paddle boarder! If you want to get away from it all, Station A is the place to go, especially if you love being up high with stunning views and changing weather and the opportunity to walk out in any direction. There's a road right beside the property but you cannot see it, and you can count the number of vehicles going past or cyclists or walkers and the total is minimal! And everyone we met either on foot or in town is relaxed and friendly.
Dr Uhart September 2021
amazing views, peaceful setting with walks from the door, imaginatively repurposed WWII building with interesting history, thoughtful decor/furnishings and very well equipped
Mr Thompson August 2021
What a unique place to stay ! The view was fantastic, we loved our week at Station A. The property was very clean, decorated and furnished to a very high standard with lots of quirky touches. We would certainly recommend it to our family and friends and hope to visit again soon
Mrs Lisney August 2021
Stunning location, incredibly peaceful and beautifully fitted out.
Mr Hurd June 2021
Amazing position on a ridge overlooking the coast, the large picture windows give an amazing impression of space. You can see Ireland on a clear day!
Mrs Boston-Morgan May 2021
Mrs Roberts April 2021
Superb location and beautiful yet comfortable decor. Just wonderful!
Ms Stephenson December 2020
A wonderful place to relax and recharge. Stunning views, the property was gorgeous inside and out. And Classic cottages made the whole booking process seamless. Thank you.
Mrs Greenwood October 2020
Station A is a place to breathe - both inside and out. The amount of light from outside enlarges the inside, and even if the clouds come right down, as they do, the lighthouse beam carries on shining 24 hours a day. It's a property with views everywhere you look, of the sky, the stars at night, the ever-changing sea, irregular fields peppered with animals, a rugged coastline, the high and low clouds, the ferry to Ireland, very ancient rocks and space.
Mr Curphey September 2020
We hope to return a.s.a.p.!
Mr Brett September 2020
A brilliant property, very stylishly redeveloped and furnished. The location is perfect, with views across fields to Strumble Head lighthouse and the sea beyond - and so quiet.
