Sheena's is a lovely, charming period house, quiet, unspoiled and unmodernised with a stunning view of the Teifi estuary. A delightful reminder of homes remembered from our youth. Sheena was charming and helpful and made sure we were confortable. But If you can't live without the latest mod-cons then it probably isn't for you :-)

Sheena is a lovely lady and I had a nice experience inspite of a bit unfortunate communication on my arrivel as she forgot phone in the car and I couldn't reach her 40min.. But that can happen to anyone. She made sure I had all I needed for my breakfast which was very nice and invited me to a party. I was tired and couldn't go, but very kind. The bathroom is( as the whole house) in old style, bath tub with separated water taps,no shower. But it has nice character with its low door frames...just mind your heads;)

Sheena's home has a comfortable bedroom with outstanding views in quiet area with easy access for walking into village or to catch local bus services eg to access Coastal Path points. The bathroom is old style with scroll top bath to luxuriate in. Sheena has individual fridge for use and amenable to preparing packed lunches. Breakfast food is provided on a 'make your own' basis. Sheena ensured my comfort at all times. She is a pleasant personable host. I would stay with her again.

Sheena made me very welcome. She was very quick to respond when I couldn't quite locate the house after a long journey which was great as it was dark.

Felt instantly at home. Sheena went out of her way to make sure I arrived safely / had a broad range of breakfast ingredients / was comfortable. Would definitely recommend.

Sheenas house is very cosy, clean, like on the pictures. The bed is comfortable and the room bright. We could use the kitchen and Sheenas breakfast was really delicious !! Sheena and her son are friendly, open minded and interesting people (the dog Meggan is cute and lovely), they did there best to make our stay unforgettable! Thank you very much! :)

I had a fantastic stay with Sheena. St. Dogmaels was an unexpected gem, and Sheena gave me plenty of help in figuring out what to do. The room is comfortable and private, with a great view. Sheena is a great cook and has amazing organic vegetarian breakfast. I highly recommend staying here!

I am a mother with a grown up son. Originating from the Cardiff area, I studied languages and travelled widely before settling in St.Dogmaels in 1991. Whilst home educating my son I’ve been involved in wholefood catering, organic gardening, running a wilderness campsite for families, teaching dance, languages and piano. Yoga and meditation have been very valuable to me since a young age.
