About Summerhill Cottage

This beautiful semi-detached cottage is a true taste of what luxury country stays can be. This stylish space is packed full of characterful features and yet accommodates everything you'd need from modern holiday accommodation. Accommodating up to four people in comfort and with its own parking and a lovely sun trap veranda with a pizza oven, the mixture of traditional and up-to-date is a delight for all who choose this stunning stone cottage as their relaxing retreat in North Pembrokeshire.

The stunning village of Mathry sits atop a hill overlooking both the bucolic countryside stretching out towards the Preseli Hills and also to the West Coast and out to sea. Nestled into the heart of this hilltop idyll is Summerhill Cottage, a semi-detached stone sanctuary away from the hustle and bustle of city life.

This two-bedroomed cottage has been sensitively decorated and the owners have hit the perfect balance between traditional and modern - the stone walls and wooden floorboards teamed with Welsh blankets, comfortable seating, and luxury bedding give the entire property an air of country chic.

Despite being a traditional building in a beautiful, rural location, Summerhill Cottage has everything you could possibly need for your stay away; the kitchen is fully equipped, including a dishwasher, washing machine, and wine fridge, and the TV with surround sound and Google Chrome Cast TV streaming stick all mean that you can relax in comfort after a day out in the sea air.

The generously sized double bedrooms house 1 6ft bed that converts to two comfortable 3ft single beds in one downstairs bedroom, while the other double room has a comfortable double bed, and both bedrooms come with The White Company bedding for a fantastic night's sleep in ultimate comfort.

Outside, the veranda is a delight - this is a south-facing, sheltered garden which is a beautiful sun trap with everything you could possibly need for an evening in the West Wales sunshine. The pizza oven comes with instructions, but bring your own pizza mix, while the Weber Gas BBQ is perfect for steaks, sausages, and freshly caught Pembrokeshire fish.

This patio is perfect for two couples taking a mates break away together, or a family of four coming to explore the beaches and wildlife of Pembrokeshire. With some of the most popular beaches in West Wales less than 6 miles away, and with the coastal path on your doorstep, this beautiful property is perfectly placed for your holiday adventure.

Layout & Further Information

2 bedrooms sleep a maximum of 4 people in two double bedrooms - one of the bedrooms features a 6ft bed zip and link bed that can be converted to two 3ft single beds suitable for adults and children(Please request at time of booking otherwise it will be left as a kingsize bed). The bedrooms have The White Company luxury bedding and sumptuous Welsh blankets for comfort. Both bedrooms are downstairs rooms.

Nearby is the large family bathroom with WC, wash hand basin, and bath with overhead shower.

Through a glass-panelled door, you enter the large kitchen with its own snug area to one side with seating and music appliances - the perfect place to relax with a glass of wine whilst someone else does the cooking!

The kitchen itself is spacious and has every amenity you would require; the shaker cabinets incorporate a mounted modern double oven while a stunning navy blue Range Cooker takes pride of place in the centre of the units. This space also houses a microwave, dishwasher, wine fridge, washing machine and refrigerator with an icebox. For coffee lovers, there's a Tassimo Coffee Machine - pods can be purchased before your arrival.

In a nod to the traditional country style, a stable door leads out of the kitchen and straight onto the veranda, which is useful for eating al fresco. Have your morning coffee in the fresh air, or take advantage of the stylish pizza oven and Weber Gas BBQ and make an evening of it! There is a small lawned area here, too, and the whole garden is enclosed so that the kids and one well-behaved dog are safe and secure.

Back inside, a gorgeous wooden staircase leads you upstairs where you'll find the dining and lounge area. This is a truly alluring and cosy space. The wooden floors are warm and echo the wooden beams above. The stone wall reminds you that you're staying in a traditional Pembrokeshire cottage, and allows the light from the wood-burning stove to bounce across its curvilinear surface.

The lounge area is an area for the senses - the flickering fire and wooden beams provide warmth, the rug and plush seating provides comfort, and the TV with surround sound and Google Chrome Cast TV streaming stick provide the visual and aural entertainment.

The dining area is just as traditionally beautiful, with a large pine table seating four with an eclectic bench seat at one end and two country kitchen chairs at the other end. The view out of the adjacent window gives the dining experience an interesting perspective as you can watch birds and enjoy the sea breeze as you enjoy your meal.

At the front of the property is a large gravelled driveway leading to the property which can easily fit two vehicles. From here, you can enter the property via a gate to the back of the property if you're carrying shopping, or up the stunning stone staircase that leads into the lounge area.

Note: please take care of small children on the exterior stone staircase.


Outside the rear is a delightful south-facing sheltered garden, which is a beautiful sun trap. equipped with a pizza oven, gas BBQ, and stunning countryside views.

The cottage is extremely comfortable and the owners have thought of anything you might need.

The cottage was clean and comfortable but we felt not up to usual standard with the details. For example, the fridge was turned off, so leaving a bottle of milk in it was daft - it had gone off. Also, the 'welcome' loaf of bread was stale - possibly cottage had been prepared but had then been a gap in bookings

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.

The village of Mathry is perched atop a hill overlooking the most stunning of North Pembrokeshire's countryside. With panoramic views from the traditional old village out across the agricultural fields that stretch out towards the Preseli Hills beyond, you get a real taste for the culture of this area. Heading West towards the edge of the village, the views stretch towards the ancient cairn of Garn Fawr and out to sea - at the right times of day, you'll spot the ferry traversing the waves from nearby Goodwick harbour and out across the Irish sea towards Rosslare on the South-East coast of Ireland.

The village itself has a pub, The Farmers Arms, which provides a great selection of beers, ales, and other drinks, as well as delicious lunches and evening meals, with a great beer garden at the rear of the premises. The village also has a delightful cafe that serves homemade lunches, coffees, teas, and fantastic homemade cakes, made by the owner herself.

Summerhill Cottage is in a prime location, with amenities nearby but also enjoying a rustic and rural position. The twin towns of Fishguard and Goodwick are 10 minutes north, with three supermarkets, petrol stations, shops, and a cinema, as well as the harbour area and ferries to Ireland twice a day. This is also the site of the last invasion of Britain by the French in 1797 - the tapestry in the town hall tells the infamous story of the Welsh women who donned their traditional outfits and ran the French out of town by fooling them into thinking they were soldiers in military uniform.

Mathry is also situated at the head of the St Davids peninsula, one of the most popular holiday spots in all of Wales. St Davids City itself is less than 10 miles by car, and if you head West out of Mathry on the smaller B road, you'll follow the coast with all its coves and cairns all the way down to Britain's smallest city.

On the way there, you'll pass Abereiddy, an old mining village on the seashore which is now home to the Blue Lagoon. This is a sunken mine that, when the industry began to shut down, was blasted so that it succumbed to the sea. The exposed ore in the mined shaft makes the water a distinct turquoise colour, hence its name. The mine shaft is so deep that it has been the location for world diving championships. It's also a popular place to indulge in some coasteering. The activity, which was born in Pembrokeshire, involves a mixture of cliff scrambling and diving, and there are instructor companies that will take you out into the abandoned mine buildings safely.

A little further along the coast, past the richly-coloured moorland that separates one coast from another, you'll find the golden-white sandy stretch known as Whitesands. This is a very popular beach due to its fantastic location, protected by Carn Llidy's rocky cairn and stretching around towards Ramsey Island. It also has a car park, fantastic cafe, lifeguard station, and ice cream stalls and wet suit hire companies set up here in the summer months. This is a lovely, accessible beach with benches for picnicking and is a great place for a family trip to the beach.

Around the headland is St Davids Head, a wild area known for being home to seals and porpoises, rare birds, and ancient iron-age settlements. At St Justinians you'll find the local lifeboat stations, a traditional red-roofed building that was built in 1869 and was responsible for saving 360 lives at sea, sat resplendently next to its more modern counterpart, opened in 2017. From here, you can take one of the many boat hire companies' trips across to Ramsey Island or out to sister islands Skockholm or Skomer.

Ramsey Island is the fourth largest island in Wales and is located 1 km away from the headland. It's surrounded by islets and tidal islands, the most famous of which are named The Bitches and have been the cause of many shipwrecks over the decades. Now, local boat owners navigate these waters expertly, ferrying passengers onto the island where you can see rare breeds of birds and fantastic displays of coast-dwelling flowers, as well as evidence of ancient wells and chapels to St Justinian himself.

On sister island Skomer you'll find the most popular creature on our shores making their summer homes - the Atlantic puffin. The puffins return to the island year upon year having spent the winter on the open, cold north oceans. They come back to lay their eggs in their little underground homes and sit on them through the Spring until the pufflings hatch in early Summer, which is the best time to visit the island to see these delightful birds. They stay until the hatchlings are strong enough to brave the waters themselves in early August, and then they leave their nests for another year.

2 miles inland is the smallest city in Britain, St Davids. Named after the patron saint of Wales who was born here to mother St Non on the cliffside where her chapel now stands, this village was deemed a city in 1994 as part of the 40th anniversary of the Queen's ascension to the throne. The reason for the city status is the remarkable cathedral rising from the valley below the cobbled streets. It was built on the spot that David had a monastic community in the fifth century and has been a place of religious pilgrimage since its formation in 1181. The cathedral is active, running services on a Sunday and a popular carol service and midnight mass at Christmas. The city itself has many beautiful boutique shops and a popular market on a Thursday, as well as pubs, cafes and restaurants to suit everyone's tastes.
