About Gwaun View

A year round retreat - Gwaun View is a charming pet friendly Pembrokeshire cottage with wifi in the Gwaun Valley.

  • Enjoy peace and quiet in this pet friendly holiday home - a delightful terraced cottage, thoughtfully re-designed to offer open plan living for up to 4 guests in the pretty countryside village of Llanychaer, known locally as 'Hillside'.
  • The open plan living area (on the 1st floor) is the star of this property with stunning valley views to be enjoyed. Beautifully lit through huge glass sliding doors that perfectly frame the view. Open them up, sit, relax and enjoy the peace and tranquillity with the sound of the babbling river and a symphony of birdsong.
  • Both bedrooms (one of which is en-suite) are on the ground floor along with a modern bathroom and utility room.
  • Cosy and warm in the Winter (the property benefits from underfloor heating and modern central heating), but perfect for the Spring and Summer months when you can open up the glass sliding doors and let the outdoors in.
  • The outdoor slate gravelled terrace enjoys day long sunshine and is an enclosed space for children and dogs (3'6'' high fence).
  • There are lovely walks right from the doorstep within the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park,its perfect country for walkers - the Gwaun Valley is a timeless treasure and a haven for wildlife - buzzards, red kites, dippers, herons and kingfishers on the river.
  • If you love to wake up to the sound of birdsong and look out onto beautiful valley views, you will love it here.

The cottage was well designed and decorated and was a wonderful setting for us and our dog. The upstairs living space made best use of the views.

Pros: A beautiful, spotlessly clean house with everything you could need in the kitchen.Beautiful walks from the doorstep. Fishguard has good eateries, royal oak and hooked at 31. Parking is in a layby up the road and is not always available, but there is room down by the pub.Cons: the mattress was not the best, the ensuite has a damp issue which smells worse as the week goes on and the underfloor heating was locked and we genuinely never felt it on at any time. Take slippers as slate floors at midnight is not funny.All said and done we would be back in a heartbeat

The cottage was beautifully clean and well presented, with wonderful views. The only disappointment was that for many years of staying in cottages, we have become accustomed to arriving to a welcome, starter pack of a few goodies, such as tea, coffee and sometimes a cake or bottle of wine, which is always appreciated after a long journey.

Everything we needed for a great holiday. Accommodation was spotless and to a very high standard. Floor to ceiling windows gave a great view of the valley and was a lovely place to sit and watch the wildlife with a glass of wine.

What an amazing spot in beautiful Pembrokeshire. The cottage is to die for – the most stunning views and beautifully restored and furnished. We loved everything about the village, the people, the cottage, and the views and would love to come back. ……The village pub is great with a fabulous warm welcome and great food. …….Probably the best cottage we've ever stayed in.
