About 3 The Croft

The Croft is ideally located in the small, historic hamlet of Llanrhian, situated on the old coast road between Mathry and St Davids. This vibrant ochre-painted building is semi-detached, tucked just off the main crossroads leading down to the picturesque port of Porthgain with its famous pub, fantastic eateries, and picture-perfect harbourside.

The Croft is a large and spacious property sleeping up to five guests in one double, one single, and one twin bedroom, all with views across green fields towards the sea and setting sun. All bedrooms, including the small single, let in ample light and sea breeze.

This semi-detached property has a bright, airy feel, with wooden floorboards hinting at the materials used in the Pembrokeshire cottages that dot the landscape, while the stunning red quarry tiles are reminiscent of traditional farmhouses and give this property a warm, rustic feel.

The open-plan layout of the downstairs space allows room for a spacious lounge area, with two sofas and an armchair nestled around the gorgeous log burner, a perfect space for post-adventure relaxing in front of the fire and TV. The dining space is generous, leading away from the lounge and towards the large bay window, with ample room for all guests to enjoy an evening meal and some drinks.

The galley kitchen is well-equipped; the owner has managed to house a fridge-freezer, double oven with hobs, washer-dryer, dishwasher, double steel sink unit, as well as a microwave and kettle, and a stand-alone unit, all in this modest space.

Beyond the kitchen, the garden opens out into a pleasing green space, perfectly private, with a shed and wood store to the rear, and access to the private parking space to the side of the property. Large benches allow guests to enjoy the sunshine and the sea breeze blowing across the fields.

Your furry friend will love staying at The Croft; the property accepts one well-behaved pet. Your holiday accommodation is on a quiet B Road but is also close to footpaths and is a very short drive to many dog-friendly coves and beaches.

The house itself is fine: light, airy and well fitted, but it is directly opposite a dairy farm. And a large number of cows make for an even larger number of flies. They were a definite problem. We dare not open a window. Every time we opened a door, especially the back door, they swept in. They drove our dog to distraction at times and sitting in the garden was usually cut short. It's not a problem the owner can solve, but it's the reason for a lost star.

What an amazing week. We booked this 3 days before we were due to travel and Terry the owner couldn't have been more accommodating, advising us on everything we needed to know, including local recommendations. The house was perfect for 2 adults and 2 children, and there was another single bed should we have needed it.He has made the house the kind of place that feels like it's your own home, and has everything that you might need. He has also dressed it impeccably and has excellent taste, along with some superb artwork, and some of his own work! The school-gymnasium floor upstairs is beautiful (the pictures do not do it justice) as is the quarry tile floor downstairs. It was way too hot for the log burner during our stay, but I can't wait to come back and get cozy in front of it on the comfy sofas. The bathroom is brand new and a great size, with a powerful shower and excellent sized bath. The main bedroom is lovely and all of the beds are very comfy with great mattresses/ bedding; we all slept very well.The location is amazing with easy access to everything that South-West Wales has to offer. It's only 15 mins walk from the sea and you can see the sun going down into the sea from all of the bedrooms.Things to try:1. Walk down to Porthgain for amazing fish & chips at The Shed or The Stoop (take the road/track on the right after the farm to stay off the road and have a lovely scenic walk)2. Walk out to the most amazing secluded beach and swim at Traeth Llyfn, but avoid at high tide as there won't be anything there! You can also watch the most amazing sunset on the cliff edge with dinner!3. 15 mins to Newgale beach; probably our favourite beach as it has absolutely everything. You do not need to go to Whitesands, although this isn't far.4. If you need food/ drink etc, try the Spar at Square and Compass; shockingly good range of food. Do not try the CK supermarket at St David's unless you want to be with the rest of the world!5. There's a campsite selling stone baked pizza 2 mins drive from the house on the road to Abereiddy.6. The Blue Lagoon at Abereiddy is stunning and well worth a look, even if you don't feel like jumping in!We will be returning soon; it was too lovely not to. Thank you again Terry.

About the Area

The Croft is situated in the picturesque hamlet of Llanrhian, with its ancient church, historic schoolhouse, and crossroads leading to some of North Pembrokeshire's most beautiful little gems.

Take the road in front of the property and follow it down towards the beautiful fishing harbour of Porthgain - this stunning village has sat on the edge of the sea for centuries, and the history is evident all around. From the limestone kilns that sit alongside the old ruined brickworks, it's plain to see that this has been an important port for the community, and now it's home to The Sloop Inn, an old mariners tavern now serving lunches, evening meals, and local ales and beers, as well as The Shed, an upmarket fish restaurant or fish and chip takeaway, serving freshly caught goods brought in by the bobbing boats. Why not take a look around Harbour Lights gallery to see some of Wales' prestigious artists' work? Or pop into The Counting House to pick up a memento of your stay here.

A few miles south of Porthgain is Abereiddy - reach this stunning industrial beach by walking the coast path from Porthgain, along to the gorgeous sandy stretch of Traeth Llyfn, which means Smooth Beach and is accessible by a metal staircase. This is a great spot for an evening swim, but keep walking and you'll come out above the Blue Lagoon, the turquoise waters of the sunken mine shaft where Red Bull (and many local coasteering companies) hold cliff-diving competitions. Work your way back around towards the old ruined miner's cottages to the stony surfing beach at Abereiddy, or take the car down the winding road for about 2 miles from your accommodation.

If beaches are your main draw to Pembrokeshire, then you're in luck. Whitesands beach is only a 15-minute drive from here and is the most popular beach on the St Davids peninsula. With a large car park, toilets, a cafe, an ice cream van, a lifeguard station and regular surfboard hire, this is definitely the most family-friendly beach, and its sandy shores are often full of families enjoying the shallow waters, surfing opportunities, coast path walks above the dunes, as well as the stunning sunsets hovering on the horizon above Ramsey Island.

From Whitesands, you have the opportunity to climb one of the ancient cairns that stand guard like dark lighthouses over this part of the North Pembrokeshire coast. Carn Llidy is a 500 million-year-old volcanic formation, and those of you who like an adventure can tackle the steep climb to the summit where an old wartime outpost affords a fantastic view of St Davids head, the famous islands of Ramsey, Skokholm and Skomer, and the undulating green countryside all around. Keep an eye out for Carreg Coetan Arthur, a neolithic burial chamber with an unmistakable 20m capstone.

One of the most well-known areas on the peninsula is, of course, Britain's smallest city; St Davids. This ancient village received city status due to its beautiful cathedral, tucked into the valley, and is one of the most important pilgrimage sites in the UK. Tour the cathedral and its nearby Bishops Palace before heading up into the narrow streets of this tiny burgh with its boutique shops, unique eateries, and ancient inns. This is also your nearest stop for a supermarket and pharmacy, and it also has a petrol station.

Wherever you are in Pembrokeshire, the famous Preseli Hills are always in the distance, watching silently over the coastline. These hills are the home of the bluestone that helped create the famous circles at Stonehenge. The mountain range, which runs like a backbone down through Pembrokeshire, is made up of 15 peaks, the highest of which is Foel Cwmcerwyn. If you're feeling adventurous, take the 8-mile Golden Road, an ancient traders route, along the top of the 13-mile-long range of hills. Otherwise, why not call VIP Wales, who offer guided tours along the coast path and scenic hills?

If being beside the sea is more your thing, then explore the spectacular rugged North Pembrokeshire coast and the offshore island of Ramsey on board Blue Shark. Take a leisurely cruise or try a spot of sea fishing. Boat trips leave St Justinians every day for trips around and onto the well-known islands; spot the second-largest colony of Manx Shearwater, or come in early Autumn to see the puffins on Skomer or spot seal pups in September.
