Quaint cosy and very warm. Equipped with everything you could want. Underfloor heating and log burner meant never cold. Master with en suite bathroom and second bedroom with wet room. Ideal property for dogs as walks in every direction upon leaving property and stream for cooling dips. We loved it.

The cottage is undoubtedly attractive and in a beautiful peaceful rural location but with quick access to the coast ,St David's and Cardigan.There is a framed award in the cottage for the quality of the restoration and it IS lovely BUT ....... A lovely wood burner is nice ( and necessary - even in May the cottage was chilly) but why are there no tools ? Hard to keep a wood fire going with no poker!! There is no information anywhere about refuse collection and recycling.The kitchen is tired and poorly equipped-- the smallest thinnest plastic "chopping board" I've ever seen and a breadboard on which only the smallest loaf could fit.A random assortment of mismatched glasses and a 12 person cafetiere which is hopeless for 2/4 .The whole thing sadly left an overall impression of meanness- my husband and I bought four decent matching wine glasses and four fizz glasses in Morrisons in Haverfordwest for 7 !!!.Perhaps it's been a while since housekeeping cast a critical eye over things but it's something that needs to be done regularly.

Reply from: Quality Cottages Team

Thank you for your comments, we have spoken to the owner today, her response is below:- The whole of the ground floor has underfloor heating which can be controlled by guests so no one should be cold. Instructions will be added regarding recycling and new chopping boards added. There are plenty of glasses and the cafetiere was replaced by previous guests who broke the original one.

Beautifully finished, really clean and the location was superb. The wifi was also really good, considering the location. They also have a great range of board games available!

Gwaun Valley Wildlife Haven and the Dyffryn Arms

  • Perfect country for walkers - the Gwaun Valley is a timeless treasure and a haven for wildlife - buzzards, red kites, dippers, herons, kingfishers and perhaps a shy otter in the river.

The Dyffryn Arms, Pontfaen

  • Enjoy the experience of taking the short walk up the valley to the characterful Dyffryn Arms - a pub known locally as 'Bessie's' - serving real ale from a jug. New Year is still celebrated here (and in the rest of the Gwaun Valley) on January 12th according to the ancient Julian Calendar.

Preseli Hills

  • Do visit Pembrokeshire's highest landscape, the wild and beautiful Preseli Hills. The rolling patchwork of moor, heath and grasslands, dotted with remote homesteads and ancient relics rise 536m above sea level and provide wonderful opportunities for walking with glorious views at every turn.

Pembrokeshire Coastal Path

  • Just a couple of miles away join the Pembrokeshire Coastal Path where 168 miles of wonderful coastal scenery stretches east towards Dinas and Newport and west to Strumble Head and St Davids.

'Poppit Rocket'

  • Forget the car and take a ride on the 'Poppit Rocket' a coastal bus service which wends its way along the coast all the way to Cardigan passing through villages and beside beaches along the way.

Fishguard Market Town

  • Visit Fishguard - a quaint little market town raved about in the 2007 Lonely Planet Guide - with its Farmers Market, cinema and interesting individual shops - just 2.5 miles away.

Cwm yr Eglwys Valley of the Church

  • A stream running through the valley tumbles over rocks at the shore with a secret sandy beach visible at low tide. Bathing is safe and there is a slipway for launching small craft. The village takes its name from the ruined 12th century church by the beach which was abandoned after storm damage in the mid 1800's.

Newport's bustling Coastal Village

  • A little further up the coast is the bustling coastal village of Newport with 2 beaches, a sailing club and a links golf course. There is a good range of interesting shops, cafes and restaurants as well as pubs, a bank, post office, mini-market chemist, doctors' surgery and filling station.

Your enjoyment of the gardens will be enhanced by tea and home-baked cake in the Conservatory at the Penlan Uchaf Farmhouse. If you love gardens also visit Dyffryn Fernant at Llanychaer and Bro Meigan at Boncath.

Outdoor Activities on the Pembrokeshire Coast

  • The Pembrokeshire coastline is the perfect venue for outdoor activities. Celtic Quest offer you adventure swimming, plunging into the sea from high rocks, rock hopping and more. Kayak King in Fishguard offer day trips exploring the rugged Pembrokeshire coast with its diverse wildlife.

  • For fun family days out in Pembrokeshire there are plenty of quality leisure parks and attractions to choose from. Castell Henllys Iron Age settlement, Scolton Manor Museum, Picton Castle, Manor Wildlife Park, Oakwood, Folly Farm, and Heatherton are all within an easy drive.

Boat Trips

  • No trip to Pembrokeshire is complete without a visit to the wildlife rich offshore islands. Boats leave for Skomer from Martins Haven on the Marloes peninsula. Expect stunning coastal scenery myriad seabirds including thousands of comical puffins, manx sheerwaters, gannets and more as well as an abundance of seals. More boats leave from St Justinians near St Davids to visit rugged Ramsey Island RSPB.
