Cottage was large and spacious with some nice touches, the kids loved the telescope. Views from back of cottage are lovely with the sea in the distance. The back garden needs some attention as its just patchy grass on 2 small levels and we were unable to use during the day due to building works next door and the garden area is quite overlooked from neighbours on both sides. We found the cottage clean & tidy inside but the large patio doors/windows & bifold windows upstairs needed a good clean as well as the patio area and furniture itself - looked like it hadnt been done for a few weeks, definitely not before we arrived on 12 Jul. One thing other thing to mention is this cottage is direct onto the main A487 road and the noise from cars was more than we expected. Overall a good base to explore the Pembrokeshire Coastline. Places we recommend to visit; Solva, lovely fishing harbour & great place for crabbing, 35 Main St cafe/bistro is fabulous too. St Davids, beautiful little city with historic cathedral & nice bespoke shops. Porthgain and Porth Clais harbours are lovely too. A must is Aberieddy beach & blue lagoon and all these people places are only around 10-15mins drive from the cottage :)

Thank you for your review and feedback, we will pass your comments onto the owners and look at our description of the property on our website, glad that you enjoyed the cottage and all that this amazing area has to offer.

Reply from: Quality Cottages Team

From the Owner:- Thank you for your comments, previous feedback has been good so where there are issues it is important that they are addressed objectively.With regard to the garden, we have deliberately divided this into 3 areas, the patio, the area with the sun loungers and a wild planted garden to attract local wildlife, as such the grass is not pristine but this is by design. We apologise for any issues caused by the building works. We do liaise closely with the contractors and ask them to speak to guests to establish when they will be out etc to try and avoid any unnecessary inconvenience. With regard to being overlooked, there is no direct line of sight from next door overlooking the garden, by allowing the hedges to grow naturally this will alleviate any privacy concerns With regard to the cleanliness issues, these have been raised with the management company. With regard to the location, this is clear on the website description, the house is oriented to the back to minimise any possible noise.

This property is amazing. Extremely high standard; the renovation of the original cottage is beautiful. Bedrooms and bathrooms are lovely and the underfloor heating throughout was a treat. The kitchen/living area is perfect for getting together for a meal/drinks/games etc after a day on the beach or walking the coastal path. Lovely view across the fields to the sea right across the back of the house. Huge wall mounted TV with access to a Netflix account for a late night movie (or to entertain the kids first thing!). We stayed with a 4 yo and a 12 mo; so having the utility with washer/dryer was really handy. Anyone not familiar with the area might think the cottage is a bit out of the way but within a few minutes drive you can be in Solva crabbing, on Whitesands beach or down in Porthgain enjoying some fresh seafood! With the property being on the main road there was some initial concern about safety but theres a strong/sturdy side gate and we always kept the front door locked (just as a precaution).. once youre in the property you dont really notice.

What a fabulous place to stay! We came to St David's this weekend to celebrate my Dad's 60th birthday. We all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The accommodation itself is immaculate and plenty big enough for the 6 of us (adults). We had a lovely meal at St David's Gin & Kitchen and enjoyed our walks in Solva. We would highly recommend this place to friends and family. Thank you.

David & Karen Brown and Family
7th July 2019

A very beautiful, high-quality cottage with lovely sea views. The telescope off the master bedroom we used to view boats and the stars. Extremely comfortable beds. (we wish we could keep them!) The surrounding area is beautiful, with friendly people, with something to do for everyone, beaches, and St. David's cathedral. We walked along the Coastal Path, past the Blue Lagoon & stopped at Traeth-Llfyn beach along the way. (shielded from the sea winds) We ended up in Porthgain & stopped for a pint in The Sloop Inn, before catching the local bus back to Abereiddi Bay. ( I was surprised thy sold tati newi on the bus!) We also went crabbing at Solva Harbour during high tide. (use bacon fat as bait) We left a bucket & 2 lines in the boot room for future guests, so have fun!On our last day, we enjoyed a round of golf at St. David's Golf Club, which has stunning sea views towards Whitesands Beach. (good value after 5pm - twilight hours)

What an amazing house, beautifully decorated throughout, with a view to die for. We all want to move in! We came to stay for our Mum's 80th birthday and all 3 generations have loved it! Places we went were Solva, definitely worth a visit, for nice ice cream. Abereiddi - we spent a lovely afternoon there. We recommend the Sloop & Sunday lunch in the Square & Compass pub, just a short walk away is a must, as is a visit to beautiful Abercastle Beach, breathtakingly beautiful. The older children loved jumping in the Blue Lagoon, a wet suit is a must. All in all a great weekend. Thank you :)

Such a beautiful home, high standard throughout. We were very lucky to have the Easter heatwave and enjoyed exploring the many beaches and coves nearby. The Sloop Inn does excellent food and we enjoyed exploring Abermawr.

The Stones Family
19th April 2019

Fantastic house, one of the best we have stayed in over the decades, perfect for couples or extended families, plenty of space and beautifully designed - especially appreciated the luxury touches and Melyn Tregwynt cushions and throws. Thank you for a lovely stay, we would highly recommend, 4-year-old George describes the house as a 'home from home' - alas our actual houses are not quite as spectacular!

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.

Porthgain Fishing Village, a 30-minute path walk away

  • Porthgain is a small picturesque harbour with the Shed bistro/bar ( Welsh Fish Restaurant of the Year 2006 - booking advisable) the Sloop Inn, a character pub serving excellent bar food and 2 art galleries showing the work of local artists and crafts.

The Pembrokeshire Coast Path

  • The Pembrokeshire Coast Path runs both east and west from Porthgain. 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 the year, but the explosion of colour with the spring flowers is something to behold!

Treath Llyfyn Beach nearby

  • The Pembrokeshire Coast Path to the west brings you to Traeth Llyfyn beach - a wide expanse of sand great for family beach days, picnics and games of rounders (with a long staircase down to the sand).

Abereiddi and the Blue Lagoon

  • Neighbouring Abereiddi, has pretty colour-washed former miners cottages, black sandy beach and the remarkable Blue Lagoon. Popular with families, the sand which is visible at low tide, also contains a high concentration of fossils and is a draw for fossil hunters.

St Davids City and St Davids Peninsula Pembrokeshire

  • St Davids is Britain's smallest city. It's lovely medieval cathedral and ancient Bishops' Palace form the historic centre but it also boasts a number of modern amenities - bank, post office, supermarket, filling station, chemist, doctor and vet - as well as a good range of interesting shops and restaurants. The Farmer's Market is well a visit.

Boat Trips to Ramsey Island

  • Book a boat trip to Ramsey Island and experience the thrill of a jet boat trip across Ramsey Sound, through the infamous Bitches, and then the contrast of moving in close to the cliffs to see the wildlife at close range. For the less adventurous there are conventional boats which both circuit and land on the island.

Whitesands Beach

  • Whitesands Beach, just six miles from Belle Vue is one of the most stunning locations on the Pembrokeshire coast. The wide sandy beach has a Blue Flag award and lifeguard cover in the summer make it popular for swimming, surfing and watersports of all sorts with surf hire and surfing lessons available at the beach. The Whitesands Cafe serves tasty snacks and refreshments.

Trefin, The Mill Cafe and Aberfelin

  • Do visit the small village of Trefin - a sleepy backwater. Call at the pub, the Ship Inn, which welcomes families and serves meals of freshly caught and locally sourced produce. A little further down the main street is the popular Mill Cafe, great for breakfasts, lunch and tea - and with a display of local art and crafts.

Newgale Beach

  • Almost 2 miles of golden sand backed by a huge pebble bank formed after a BIG storm in 1859.
  • Kitesurfing and surfing are popular on this beach and tuition is available.
  • Walk right down to the southern end to find a walk-through cave and numerous sheltered bays.
  • Dog restrictions apply to the middle third of the beach between the 1 st May - 30th September.
  • Beach facilities - Toilets, lifeguards are on duty between the beginning of June to the end of September.

    Fishguard Town and Pretty Lower Fishguard Harbour

    • Just six miles north you can wander among the boats or walk out along the quayside to the sailing club and (low tide) beach beyond of this pretty, unspoiled coastal harbour. Buy fantastic local produce from the weekly farmers market and investigate the individual shops, restaurants and pubs in this 'up and coming' little town. (The Lonely Planet Guide).

    Scolton Manor and County Museum

    • Just a little further afield, enjoy a trip back to Victorian times at the Scolton Manor and Country Museum. The house has been sympathetically restored to give a taste of Victorian society and style and together with 60 acres of parkland and a cafe providing delicious homemade cakes, this is a great family day out.

    Priskilly Forest Golf Club

    • This family-owned 9-hole course is a gem, nestling amongst mature oaks, sycamores and rhododendrons and with panoramic views of the coast and country from Strumble Head to the Preseli Mountains.
    • The course is open all year to visitors of all abilities and tuition is available - so why not learn to play? All your golfing requirements - for purchase or hire - are available at the golf shop. While you play, your family can enjoy the woodland walk and try the delicious food in ' Y Cabin' Bar/Bistro.
    Pembrokeshire Family Days out

    • If you are looking for activity - for children or adults - centres which will guide you through a new sport can be found in TYF Adventures, Preseli Venture or Sealyham Activity Centre. Hire a bike or a kayak or try out coasteering - there is scope for all sorts of thrilling water and land-based sports.
    • At the Creative Cafe in Haverfordwest or Narberth you can paint your own pottery - or make mosaics with Maddy Jane at Treffynnon ([email protected]) - just let your imagination take over!
    • Well worth a visit is Picton Castle, near Haverfordwest.
    • If you take a trip to the south of the county you can visit the beautiful beaches of Tenby & Saundersfoot, Oakwood Theme Park, Heatherton, Folly Farm Zoo, Manor Wildlife Park and the Blue Lagoon Water Park.
