Country and sea views from Beacon Cottage above the hamlet of Llanrhian, pets welcome
  • Beacon Cottage lies on a quiet country lane above the tiny hamlet of Llanrhian.  
  • Formerly a milking parlour, it is a recent conversion, neatly proportioned with ground floor and attic bedrooms and open plan kitchen, dining  and living room. 
  • The sunny conservatory offers panoramic views across fields and out to sea above the nearby village of Porthgain.
  • In summer watch the sun set over the Abereiddi valley or stroll down for supper to the Shed Bistro or the Sloop Inn in Porthgain.
  • With water heating assisted by solar panels, Beacon Cottage is warm and comfortable and a lovely destination for a holiday at all times of year.
The Pembrokeshire Coast Path
  • It is a pleasant walk or a short drive to Porthgain from which the Pembrokeshire Coast Path runs both east and west. The dramatic coastal scenery, flower and wildlife are what make Pembrokeshire one of the world’s best holiday destinations (National Geographic voted Pembrokeshire the 2nd best coastal destination in the world). Splendid at all times of year, the explosion of colour with the spring flowers is something to behold!

Treath Llyfyn Beach near Llanrhian holiday cottage

  • The nearest beach to Beacon Cottage is Traeth Llyfyn - a wide expanse of sand great for family beach days, picnics and games of rounders  - although your dog might not be keen on the long staircase down to the sand.

Abereiddi and the Blue Lagoon

  • Neighbouring Abereiddi, has pretty colour-washed former miners’ cottages, black sandy beach (where dogs are welcome all year round) and the remarkable Blue Lagoon. Popular with families, the sand which is visible at low tide, also contains a high concentration of fossils and is a draw for fossil hunters.

St Davids Cathedral City

  • St Davids is Britain’s smallest city. Its lovely medieval cathedral and ancient Bishops’ Palace form the historic centre but it also boasts a number of modern amenities - banks, post office, supermarket, filling station, chemist, doctor and vet – as well as a good range of interesting shops and galleries.

Boat Trips to Ramsey Island

  • Book a boat trip to Ramsey Island and experience the thrill of a jet boat trip across Ramsey Sound, through the infamous Bitches, and then the contrast of moving in close to the cliffs to see the wildlife at close range.
  • For the less adventurous there are conventional boats which both circuit and land on the island.
  • Look out for porpoises, dolphins and a huge variety of sea birds. Whichever trip you choose this is truly memorable holiday experience!

Whitesands Beach

  • Whitesands Beach, just nine miles from this Llanrhian holiday cottage, is one of the most stunning locations on the Pembrokeshire coast. The wide sandy beach has a Blue Flag award and lifeguard cover in the summer make it popular for swimming, surfing and watersports of all sorts. 
  • Surf hire and surfing lessons are available at the beach. This is a lovely place to walk - and between October and the end of April your dog can come too.
  • When you have had fun on the beach visit the Whitesands Cafe for tasty snacks and refreshments.


  • Just two miles north along the coast from Beacon Cottage you will reach the pretty little harbour village of Abercastle Scattered with local boats, it is popular for fishing, swimming, diving and lots of other water-based activities.
Fishguard Town and Pretty Lower Fishguard Harbour
  • Take a day trip to Ireland from Fishguard ferry port, buy fantastic local produce from the weekly farmers market and investigate the individual shops, restaurants and pubs in this ‘up and coming’ little town (The Lonely Planet Guide 2009).  
  • Wander amongst the boats or walk out along the quayside to the sailing club and (low tide) beach beyond of Lower Fishguard's pretty, unspoiled coastal harbour.
  • Fishguard was the setting for the ‘Last Invasion of Britain’ in 1797 which is commemorated in our very own Welsh ‘Last Invasion Tapestry’ sewn by local needlewomen and displayed in the Town Hall.
Pembrokeshire Family Days out
  • TYF Adventures, Preseli Venture or Sealyham Activity Centre offer all sorts of thrilling water and land based sports.
  • Paint your own pottery at the Creative Cafe in Haverfordwest or Narberth.
  • Let your imagination take over making mosaics with Maddy Janes at Treffynnon (maddiejanes@netscape.net).
  • Visit Oakwood Theme Park or Anna Ryder Richardson's Wild Welsh Zoo in the south of the county.
  • Whatever your preference and whatever the weather - there is certainly a lot to choose from.
Priskilly Forest Golf Club
  • Open all year to visitors of all abilities - this family owned 9 hole course is a hidden gem (1.5m), nestling amongst mature oaks, sycamores and rhododendrons with panoramic views of the coast and country from Strumble Head to the Preseli Mountains.
  • Tuition is available so why not take the opportunity to learn to play? All your golfing requirements - either for purchase or hire are available at the golf shop.
  • For non-golfers there is a woodland walk and gardens to enjoy and " Y Cabin" Bar/Bistro offers delicious home cooked fare
Pets are welcome at Beacon Cottage, warm and comfortable cottage above the hamlet of Llanrhian
