Guest Book Comments

The cottage was excellent! Very clean and well appointed with mostly new appliances and good quality furniture. Everything worked! We enjoyed the peaceful, rural location together with the added security of the owner's family living in the adjacent property. The weather for the week of our stay was exceptionally good and when it is like that the Pembrokeshire coast is very special - and Buttercup Cottage is a truly lovely base from which to enjoy it!

Property Description

Traditional Pembrokeshire Farm Cottage set in rolling countryside

  • Stone built cottage with expansive lawns set in verdant countryside.
  • One neighbouring cottage and then acres of space, but in-close to the village of Croesgoch and the picturesque fishing harbour of Porthgain.
  • 3 bedrooms and 3 newly fitted bathrooms, the main bathroom upstairs is a fabulous place to while away the hours in the luxury bath.
  • From the kitchen, enter into the heart of the home where a traditional stone inglenook provides the focal point for cosy evenings in front of the woodburning stove.
  • The well-appointed kitchen diner has the space to sit six in farmhouse style kitchen.
  • Upstairs there is one bedroom with exposed roof beams and large bathroom across the small landing. A truly bright and tranquil place to enjoy a soak in the new bath. 
  • There are room sizes to suit all of the family, a twin room and a double room on the ground floor, both served by a newly fitted bathroom with separate shower, wc and basin.
  • Outside there is private parking for 3 cars with an adjacent  garden with mature borders and true Pembrokeshire grassed walls.

About the Area

The Pembrokeshire Coast Path

  • To make the best of your holiday and the Pembrokeshire coastline take time to enjoy the Pembrokeshire Coastal Path - definitely the jewel of the county.  Just a short way from the cottage join the Coastal Path at Trefin and walk west towards Porthgain, Traethllyfyn beach and Abereiddi or north towards Abermawr and Abercastle.
  • 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 the year, the explosion of colour with the spring flowers is something to behold!

Porthgain Village and harbour

  • Once a prosperous nineteenth-century industrial harbour which exported slate from local quarries at Porthgain and Abereiddi. Now the village is popular for water sports enthusiasts - boaters, rowers, fishermen and canoeists - their activities overlooked by relics of the industrial past.
  • Eating out at the popular Sloop Inn - a Historic Public House and the award-winning Shed, a gem of a Fish Restaurant serving fish and chips purporting to match Rick Steins for quality - is a must. 

Beaches at Abereiddi, Traethllyfyn, Abermawr & Aberbach

  • These are some of the finest beaches in Pembrokeshire and tend to attract much lower numbers being hidden away. 
  • To the south of Porthgain on the coast path you will reach the metal steps down onto Traethllyfyn beach – a wide sandy expanse (avoid high tide) great for swimming, walking the dog, picnics and games of frisbee!  
  • A little further on is Abereiddi – a good family beach famous for its black sand and start of the short walk round to the Blue Lagoon – a deep flooded quarry in the rocks famous for cliff jumping and as the venue for the Red Bull diving competition!  
  • North of the cottage are Abermawr and Aberbach beaches – enjoy the walk down through the valley to Abermawr and make sure to catch the amazing carpet of bluebells in the spring.Just a short distance is the amazing woollen mill of Melin Tregwynt which produces the most wonderful patterns, which adorn some of the finest boutique homes in the UK.
  • Newgale, Little Haven , Broadhaven are also within 20 minutes drive.

 Whitesands Beach

  • A short drive will take you to the Blue Flag beach at Whitesands – popular with families and surfers alike. The café serves breakfast and evening meals in the summer season or why not enjoy a takeaway and sit on the beach to see the spectacular sunsets.

St Davids

  • Spend a few hours exploring the thriving ancient village-city. Its charming huddle of shops, galleries, bars and restaurant are arranged around magnificent St Davids Cathedral and the atmospheric ruins of the Bishop's Palace. Book a thrilling boat trip out to the internationally important bird islands. RSPB Ramsey Island, just 1 km offshore has impressive sea cliffs teeming with seabirds and the coastal waters around are frequented by seals, dolphins and passing whales.


  • The beautiful natural harbour at Solva is always on visitors' agendas, with its yachts, lovely galleries and gifts shops.

  • Fishguard Farmers Market is held in the Fishguard Town Hall every Saturday and a weekly market every Thursday. There are delicious local produce and crafts on offer and the market is well worth a visit.
  • Upstairs in the Town Hall, the gallery contains the remarkable Last Invasion Tapestry. Made in 1997 to commemorate the bicentenary of the 1797 invasion by the French - the last time the British mainland was invaded! This amazing piece of work was created by local needle workers and tells the story in the style of that told by the famous Bayeux Tapestry.

Newport Village

  • A little further up the coast is the popular village of Newport.  This pretty village has a number of cafes and restaurants to suit a wide range of budgets. 
  • Visit the wide Blue Flag sandy beach at Newport or take your boat down to launch at the Parrog Sailing Club.

Arts and Crafts in North Pembrokeshire

  • Artists are drawn to Pembrokeshire for the quality of the light made by the combination of landscape and sea. The county is a treasure trove of little galleries and local galleries range from St Davids' Oriel y Parc - both local Tourist Information Centre and 'state of the art' gallery housing both visiting and resident (Graham Sutherland) exhibitions - to small individual local artists' galleries with a great variety of art on offer. 
  • The cottage has some beautiful framed examples of John Knapp-Fisher, one of the famous artists who was drawn to the west and the light and whose old world gallery and workshop is 2 miles away .

Coastal 'Shuttle' Buses

  • A fabulous approach to travel are the coastal shuttle buses which trundle round the lanes during the summer months. This mode of transport is ideal for hassle-free access to the Coastal Path, beaches and coves.  You can join and leave the buses at will - so leave your car behind and enjoy this beautiful part of Pembrokeshire without the worry of your carbon footprint or your fuel bill.

Boat Trips and Offshore Islands - Adventures on the beautiful clear waters

  • When you have seen the coastline from the coastal path complete the experience by going to sea. The Pembrokeshire coast is Britain's only coastal National Park and is a treasure-trove of birds and flowers, fish and marine mammals. 
  • Take a trip round Ramsey Island. Boats leave from St Justinians and will take you round the Island and out to sea - or to land and spend the day wandering this amazing, rugged Island. Crews complete the experience by giving a wealth of local information - it is the experience of a lifetime!

Outdoor Activities, horse riding and golf

  • Pembrokeshire is a centre for water based activities of all sorts. Home of the sport of 'Coasteering', it is also a magnet for surfers and windsurfers, sailors, canoeists and rowers. If you are skilled at your chosen sport the coastline is an open venue but if you are less experienced, the County is well served with centres offering safe, instructor-led activities.
  • There are golf courses to suit all levels of skill – Haverfordwest and Priskilly are within easy reach and one of the most dramatic small courses overlooking the lovely Whitesands beach.
  • At the back of St Bride’s Bay, Nolton Riding Stable at Nolton Haven is a riding school with a difference.  Even experienced riders find it hard to top the experience of riding through the surf on the lovely beach at Druidston Haven.
