About Abermawr Cottage

Tucked away in an idyllic setting, this lovingly renovated single storey character home embodies modern rustic style and sets the scene for rest and relaxation.

In March 2018 Abermawr Cottage was listed in The Times as a recommended place to stay with family.

  • Located on a peaceful leafy hilltop within walking distance of twin beaches Abermawr and Aberbach, this is a characterful cottage (known locally as Pen yr Allt) full of interest and style you can't fail to be charmed by it.

  • Period features blend seamlessly with modern comforts from the timber floors, Jotul woodburning stove and deep set cottage windows to the exposed stone walls and wooden beams high in what was the crog loft.

  • A delightful bright and airy open plan kitchen, dining and sitting room invites relaxation - throw open the patio doors and listen to a chorus of bird. Abermawr Cottage is a wildlife haven and great for bird watching.

  • Better still on warm days move onto the sunny terrace and while away the hours in blissful contentment reading a good book while sipping a favourite tipple and admiring the pretty wild woodland garden.

  • After busy days on the beach and coastal path, spend lazy evenings sharing locally sourced holiday meals and conversation at the rustic dining table.

  • The three cosy cottage bedrooms invite rest and relaxation with two bathrooms across the hallway all on one level.

  • Perfect at anytime of the year, the incredibly peaceful location and bespoke interiors make this a unique and very special holiday hideaway.

This was our second visit and we found it as comfortable and appealing as previously. Ed is a very welcoming host and clearly cares a great deal about the cottage. Our only disappointment was that there was no longer a DVD, as before, and as in the cottage details. We had brought some films with us especially to watch (we only get the time on holiday!). There is now catch-up TV but that only works as a substitute if there is anything you want to catch-up on...

Reply from: Quality Cottages Team

Thank you for your review and feedback we will be contacting the owner regarding the DVD player. We are delighted that despite this you had a great stay.

The cottage is excellent, it's high quality and everything you need is there. It was spotlessly clean and Ed, the owner, was attentive and made sure we had all we needed and that there were no problems. The property is extremely comfortable and the beds and bedding was excellent. It's 15 minutes walk through a wood to a beautiful uncrowded beach. All in all, highly recommended

We had a wonderful stay at the cottage. Ed has made it comfortable, stylish and interesting while keeping it practical and to live in. Everything in this newly restored property was to a very high standard right down to the fine detail of the hotel quality bedlinen. Everything has been so thoughtfully done and we wanted for nothing during our stay. The walk to the sea through the woods was enchanting (even on a wet January day) and really was the icing on the cake for us and the dogs. The dog room was a real bonus and meant that we could leave them to dry out before they came in to the house after muddy walks and swims in the sea! On our First night we took the short trip to the Farmers arms and within minutes we were chatting with the friendly locals and staff and made to feel very welcome. The surrounding areas was beautiful with lots of rugged coastline, pretty fishing villages and golden bays. My only critique is that the photos don't really do the place justice. We are really looking forward to coming again 10 out of 10 from us! Lela, Al, Moss and Meg x

The place was immaculate, stylish and very comfortable. Fantastic location, loved the fact we could walk to the coastal path and forget about the car for the day. Would highly recommend.

30th October 2017

Ed's house is a gem. Its unique interior is an enrichment for people who want to relax and feel good. There is everything you need for lovely holidays. We had a wonderful time hiking the coastal path and relaxing on the beach. We will be back!

20th October 2017

We were charmed by this rustic house and its thoughtful interior design. The property is well maintained and has an inviting atmosphere. The facilities were all good and we loved spending evenings in front of the rustic woodburner. The scenic coastline is only a short walk away and we have found plenty of nice pubs! A great find altogether

This is a beautiful holiday home in a fantastic location. It was really well equipped, perfect for our family including everything you need when travelling with a baby and young children. There is lots to do in the local area, with lovely walks from the cottage to the coastal path. The nearest beach is beautiful, an easy walk away, and the approach to it through the National Trust woodlands took us back to New Zealand! We can't wait to visit again.

About the Area

If you would like more information on the local area, please call us on 01348 837871 to speak to one of our friendly team.

Abermawr & Aberbach Beaches - just 15 minutes walk away

  • Footpaths through the National Trust woodlands lead you to the sand and shingle beaches of Abermawr and Aberbach, dogs are welcome all year round - this is a walkers paradise.

  • Woodlands carpeted with bluebells, wood anemones, wild garlic and alive with birdsong in the spring and seals can be spotted on the shoreline in the Autumn.

  • The remains of a long vanished petrified forest can be seen at Abermawr and the pretty cove of Aberbach is good for seal spotting in September.

Mathry village in Pembrokeshire Coastal Park

  • The hilltop village of Mathry has a pub, (good bar food and welcoming atmosphere - within walking distance for the energetic - take a torch to guide you home) and a church which is part of ' Saints & Stones' - included in a tour of the Pilgrims Ways of Pembrokeshire.

Melin Tregwynt Woollen Mill

  • Visit Melin Tregwynt Woollen Mill to discover exclusive wool blankets, throws, cushions and clothing all woven in Wales - enjoy a snack or meal in the cafe and perhaps buy a unique holiday souvenir.

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.

  • 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!

Coastal 'Shuttle' Buses

  • Coastal shuttle buses trundle round the lanes during the summer months. This mode of transport is ideal for hassle-free access to the Coastal Path, the beaches and coves. You can join and leave the busses 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.

Porthgain Village and harbour

  • Porthgain was once a prosperous nineteenth century industrial harbour which exported slate from local quarries at Porthgain and Abereiddi. Now the village is popular for water sport enthusiasts - boaters, rowers, fishermen and canoeists - their activities overlooked by relics of the industrial past.

  • The village can be busy in summer. It is on the Pembrokeshire Coastal Path, served by the Strumble Shuttle (the local bus service) and offers the visitor galleries and a gift shop.

  • Eat out at the popular Sloop Inn and award winning Shed Fish Restaurant.

Whitesands Beach

  • A short drive will take you to the Blue Flag beach at Whitesands - popular with families and surfers alike. The cafe 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 muddle of shops, galleries, bars and restaurant are protectively arranged around magnificent St Davids Cathedral and the atmospheric Bishop's Palace ruins.

Boat Trips and Offshore Islands - Adventures for both the brave and timid

  • 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 for both the brave and the timid 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!

Fishguard Town and The Last Invasion Tapestry

  • 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.

Visit Preseli Mountains & Gwaun Valley

  • Inland explore the Preseli Mountains, wonderful views, gentle hill walking, cycling, driving and in a timeless world of its own the mysterious beautiful hidden Gwaun Valley with its hanging deciduous woodlands.

TYF & Preseli Ventures

  • Do something a little different and get the adrenaline flowing on an adventure day out - kayaking, surfing, climbing or coasteering. Take a step into the unknown with the experienced guides. Best of all experience it in the beautiful and rugged surroundings of the Pembrokeshire Coast.

Castell Henllys

  • Visit a splendid reconstructed Iron Age settlement where roundhouses have been built on original Iron Age foundations. Peep into the past and experience how Iron Age folk lived their daily lives.

Family Days out in Pembrokeshire

  • Further south in the county there are a number of quality family attractions including Oakwood, Blue Lagoon Water Park, Folly Farm, Manor Wildlife Park, Heatherton Sports and Dinosaur Park Tenby, perfect for young ones and adults alike.

Charming home full of character and unique style ideal for year round holidays close to Abermawr and Aberbach beaches on the rugged north Pembrokeshire coast. Sleeps 6 guests and welcomes 2 dogs.
