Why we recommend Craig yr Awel...

Family and dog friendly Whitesands coastal cottage, a colonial style bungalow directly above the beach. All bedrooms with TV's and en-suite facilities.

About Craig yr Awel
Location, location, location! This Whitesands coastal cottage is located directly above the sweeping sands with an uninterrupted seascape from most windows. 
  • One of our most popular coastal cottages in Pembrokeshire - a glazed patio extends the full width of this 1930's character dormer bungalow with magnificent panoramic views.
  • One of the most stunning locations on the whole Pembrokeshire coast - overlooking Whitesands Bay, Pembrokeshire with its Blue Flag award beach, Ramsey Island and St Davids Head.
  • Magnificent sea views, unforgettable sunsets
  • 200 yard sloping footpath leads down to the large sandy beach of Whitesands - excellent bathing, surfing and rock pools.
  • Immediate access to the Pembrokeshire Coastal path perfect for walking with your family and pet dogs.
  • Due to steps down to the house and changes in level between rooms, unfortunately Craig yr Awel is unsuitable for disabled access.

  • St Davids has a range of amenities including banks, post office, internet cafe, supermarket, filling station, chemist, doctor, vet, restaurants, pubs, galleries and interesting independent shops. The magnificent 12th century Cathedral nestles at its heart.
St Davids Golf Course

Why you love Craig yr Awel
Another wonderful visit. Mixed weather but the view never fails to enthral us. From our warm and comfortable spot above the waves we have watched cormorants, a seal and a pair of peregrine falcons. Coastal walks, beach walks and lunch outside in the sun!

Another superb week on a favourite place for us. The house remains snug and warm whatever the weather and we never tire of that view. Very many thanks.

We have thoroughly enjoyed watching the changing moods of the sea from this wonderful view-point. The walks and the wild flowers have been excellent too.

As we gaze across the sea we think what a beautiful place to be. Sunshine, wind, sea and sand. A better place could not be planned. The children laughed and had such fun, happy days and lots of sun. Evenings full of food and wine. We've really had a lovely time. I'm sure we'll all be back one day. Thank you for having us is all to say.
