  • Porthgain Fishing Village, a 15 minutes walk away

Porthgain is a small picturesque harbour with the Shed bistro/bar,  the Sloop Inn, a character pub serving excellent bar food and 2 art galleries showing the work of local artists and crafts.

  • Trefin, The Mill Cafe and Aberfelin

Trefin is a charming, unspoiled, historic village on North Pembrokeshire's rugged coast near St Davids, 500 yards inland from some spectacular cliffs and coves. Scattered throughout the village are pretty traditional Welsh cottages. The pub, the Ship Inn, welcomes families and serves meals of freshly caught and locally sourced produce.

A little further down the lane is the popular Mill Cafe great for breakfasts, lunch and tea. There is also a display of local art and crafts in the cafe.

Stroll west out of the village, to a small valley with a bridge. To the right is a footpath that leads down to a small cove called Aberfelin, where the ruins of Melin Trefin overlook the beach - great for rock pools at low tide. You can also pick up the Pembrokeshire Coastal Path at this point.

    • The Pembrokeshire Coast Path

    The Pembrokeshire Coast Path runs both east and west from Porthgain. The dramatic coastal scenery, wild flowers 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 near Porthgain holiday cottage

       Traeth Llyfyn beach is the nearest beach to The Bickney - a wide expanse of sand, great for family beach days, picnics and games of rounders (with a long staircase down to the sand).

      • Abercastle

      Just two miles north along the coast from The Bickney you will reach the pretty little harbour village of Abercastle. Scattered with local boats, it is popular for fishing, swimming, diving and lots of other water-based activities.

      • Abereiddi and the Blue Lagoon

        Neighbouring Abereiddi, has pretty colour-washed former miners cottages, black sandy beach where dogs are welcome all year round 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. Its lovely medieval cathedral and ancient Bishops' Palace form the historic centre but it also boasts a number of modern amenities - good restaurants, inns, cafes, bank, post office, supermarket, filling station, chemist, doctor and vet - as well as a good range of interesting shops.

          • 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 a few miles away, 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 water sports of all sorts with surf hire and surfing lessons available at the beach. The beach is a lovely place to walk and between October and the end of April your dog can come too. When you have had fun on the beach visit the Whitesands Cafe for tasty snacks and refreshments.

              • Fishguard Town and Pretty Lower Fishguard Harbour
                Wander amongst 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).
                • Pony Trekking
                  Visit Llanwnda Riding School in Goodwick for trekking through spectacular coastal scenery in the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park. Horses available for all abilities.
                  • 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 where your well behaved dog on a lead is welcome and a cafe providing delicious homemade cakes, this is a great family day out.

                    Charming, traditional holiday cottage near the historic coastal village of Porthgain on the rugged north Pembrokeshire coast.
