Amazing little find. The cottage is fab, cosy and homely! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The fire-heated hot tub is amazing after a long day of exploring. Jennifer and Phil were the best hosts and were truly at our beck and call whenever we needed them. Couldn't recommend more!!

We have just had the most wonderful stay at the Byre.It really is a little oasis here. Situated to appreciate all the wonderful countryside of Pembrokeshire; the beaches at Newport, Nolton Haven and Amroth were not too busy and beautiful. We rode our small motorbikes around the twisty and quiet lanes, then came home to enjoy a wood-fired hot tub. Now that is something different! Our little Dachshund Kickstart loved walking around their lake and swimming in it, and we had a go at rowing around it too. There are plenty of quiet places to sit and enjoy the surroundings, including the fire pit which is a lovely place to relax in the evening. When you've been out all day you really appreciate the cosy underfloor central heating. Phil and Jen are just so nice and helpful but not at all intrusive, I say that because sometimes I have chosen to not stay where owners are close by, but the cottage is super private and has everything you need for a great holiday. Highly recommended! Owner response: Thank you so much for your review, we are so glad you enjoyed your stay. We really appreciate having you as guests and Kickstart too. Very warm wishes and we hope to see you 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.

Located on a secluded non-working farm, with glorious rolling countryside, the property is centrally located for visiting all of Pembrokeshire's wonderful attractions, including 186 miles of magnificent coastline and various quaint villages and towns.

The Preseli Hills
Sitting on the edge of the Preseli Hills, the property offers some fabulous walking opportunities across this gloriously rugged and remote stretch of land which dominates the landscape of North Pembrokeshire. In the summer, the hills are alive with the purple hues of heather, while sheep and ponies roam the open landscape. The views from atop Foel Cwmcerwyn (the highest peak in West Wales), or the more popular Foel Eryr are simply spectacular and on the clearest days, you can see all the way to Ireland and North Wales.

The Preseli Hills are also famous for its Pembrokeshire Bluestone with many rocks littering the hillside - ancient remnants of glaciers that carved the undulating landscape. The enigmatic blue-tinged stone - famously used to create Stonehenge - can also be seen at numerous neolithic sites around the area, including Pentre Ifan and various others, underlying the historic significance of the area.

Tafarn Sinc
After a long (or short!) walk we would certainly recommend stopping by the community-owned Tafarn Sinc. This charming red-tin-clad pub in Rosebush, offers authentic, traditional Welsh food and drink, and is only a 7-minute drive away!

To the North, a short drive through the hills takes you to Newport with its wonderful sandy beach and thriving community. This artists' haunt brings you wholefood shopping, co-operative art, street cafes and some of the best eateries and restaurants Pembrokeshire has to offer.

15 minutes up the coast, visit the charming market town of Cardigan with another great selection of local cuisine and independent shops as well as a fabulous cinema and theatre. Nearby Poppit sands offer another glorious sandy beach for the ardent beachgoer.

Dinas Cross
Travelling south along the North Pembs coast, visit the village of Dinas with its three beaches - Cwm yr Eglwys, Pwllgwaloed and the lesser-known Aberbach. The Old Sailors Inn in Pwllgwaelod is a great spot for an outdoor meal in the summer months, while there are two great walks between the beaches - either along the dramatic cliff line of Dinas Head or a somewhat easier stroll inland directly between the two beaches.

Llys y Fran Reservoir and Country Park
A great place for walking, mountain biking and fishing, Llys y Fran Country Park has more than 300 acres of park and wooded valleys surrounding the 2-mile reservoir - the largest game fishery in South West Wales with mixed rainbow and wild brown trout. There are picnic sites, a 7.5-mile circular trail for walkers and cyclists around the lake with lots of wild and birdlife - badgers, foxes, otters, sparrowhawk, buzzard and woodpeckers as well as little gulls and black tern on the lake. Mountain bikes and fishing boats can be hired and you can also use your own sailing boat, canoes or sailboards by arrangement with the Visitor Centre where there is a gift shop and restaurant open every day from mid-March to the end of October.

Bluestone Brewery
Bluestone Brewing is a family-run brewery tucked away just a short walk from Bluestone Retreat. Well worth a visit, ales are brewed in the rough and rocky hills of the Bluestone mountains. Throughout the year several open-air events are held with live music, food and entertainment.

Gellifawr Country Hotel
Within a very short drive from Serendipity is Gellifawr Hotel, which is a nineteenth-century stone farmhouse, very welcoming, with landscaped gardens, cosy log fires in the winter, with bar, restaurant and free wifi, situated in the idyllic countryside.

Pembrokeshire Candle Centre, Gwaun Valley
In a hollow at the entrance to the Gwaun Valley is the Pembrokeshire Candle Centre - watch candles being hand-made by Danish artisan - lots of different kinds to buy. Established for about 50 years.

Castell Henllys
Enjoy a guided tour around this recreated Iron Age settlement with its roundhouses built exactly where they stood over 2,000 years ago. Set within 30 acres of beautiful woodland and river meadows in the heart of the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park your dog is welcome too!

The medieval walled town of Tenby with its picturesque harbour is a popular seaside resort. Interesting little shops, galleries, pubs, restaurants, cobbled streets and 5 glorious beaches (Blue Flag) to choose from. Tenby harbour has a thriving boating and fishing community - try your hand on a mackerel fishing trip or take a boat trip over to the holy island of Caldey.

Saundersfoot Village
Pretty, bustling Saundersfoot has 3 lovely beaches, harbour, shops, pubs, galleries, a wonderful old fashioned sweet shop, 'Chobbles', good seafood restaurants, and gifts shops.

Indulge yourself at the St Brides Hotel & Spa, a luxury hotel designed around the spectacular view over Saundersfoot Harbour and Carmarthen Bay.

A bustling market town with wonderful shops, cafes, bars and restaurants. You can easily spend a day or two in Narberth itself - voted one of the Top 10 High streets in the UK with its boutique shops, galleries, delicatessens, cafes and restaurants. Narberth has many amazing eateries and fabulous boutique shops, including the renowned Golden Sheaf Gallery, and Wisebuys Food Emporium, a must for local Welsh delights. Also Fire and Ice gin store for those looking for a special treat.

Just outside the town centre is Narberth's Castle, first recorded as a Norman Castle in 1116 and with strong links to The Mabinogion. A rectangular castle with towers on each corner but, unfortunately, not much remains today.

St Davids, Cathedral & Boat Trips
Britain's smallest city with a magnificent Cathedral nestled at its heart. The village city is full of interesting shops, galleries, crafts and a choice of places to eat and drink. Do take the opportunity to book a memorable boat trip to the spectacular off lying bird islands.

Pembrokeshire Coastal Path
Pembrokeshire's Coastal Path stretches 186 miles from start to finish. Coastal bus services specially designed for walkers will pick up and drop off all along the route so you can choose to walk sections at a time. Secluded beaches, castle ruins and sleepy fishing villages are a few of the sights you will see. Watch out for puffins and seals who enjoy this coastal habitat.

Pembrokeshire Castles
There are magnificent castles within easy driving distance each well worth a visit - beautiful Carew & Tidal Mill, fascinating Manorbier & pretty sheltered beach, grand Picton with lovely gardens and Llawhaden, once the summer residence of the Bishops of St Davids.

Family days out in Pembrokeshire
There is a wonderful choice of days out for the whole family when staying at Marhaba Cottage. Oakwood, Folly Farm, Heatherton, Tenby Dinosaur Park, Manor Wildlife Park are all fun for the whole family to enjoy.

Pembrokeshire Wake Park
The Wake Park in Pembrokeshire is around a 20-minute drive and offers a range of options including healthy and delicious food freshly cooked, an inflatable obstacle course and of course wakeboarding! It's also very dog friendly and great for adults and kids.

Tea at Penally Abbey
Serving sumptuous afternoon tea, you can book online for up to 4 people. They do have limited availability in the Sunroom for people who have well-behaved dogs, but you will need to call in advance to ensure a booking here. There are vegetarian and gluten-free options too. Tea is served 7 days a week from 2 pm to 4 pm.

Canoe the lower Teifi from Llechryd down the gorge on a peaceful section of river to Cardigan. This trip takes around 4ish hours and is a fabulous experience. Your Guide will also talk to you about the history and wildlife in the gorge.

Foraging and Outdoor Adventure
Yun Hider has spent 25 years working with some of the UK's top Michelin starred chefs, has been on Countryfile and featured in Eat Magazine and national newspapers. He is passionate about wild plants and learning their culinary and medical properties. You can spend the day with Yun foraging in spectacular scenery gaining great insight into wild plants growing in the forest, hedgerows, estuaries and the coast.
