We were really anticipating a good experience when we booked Porthclais Farmhouse (Rhos y Cribed) and indeed, our hopes were realised when we arrived at the end of November for our annual Advent weekend in West Wales. The house is simply magnificent, with 5 excellent bedrooms all with the most comfortable beds you could wish for and bedding of high quality. The lounge was spacious and suitable for the 10 of us to socialise and watch 'Strictly'. The huge dining table meant that there was a lot of space to eat without bumping elbows! Preparing food in the well appointed kitchen was easy and there was plenty of cupboard space. Importantly, the large house was really warm, a pleasant surprise given the space of the property.On the downside, it's a pity there wasn't a gate to the front garden which gave a problem for our 2 retrievers to play without the chance to escape. We manage to improvise, but a proper gate would be good.All the bathrooms were superb, but again, a small point: there was nowhere to put soap and shampoo apart from on the floor. For such a high spec property, this seemed an easily rectifiable oversight.Finally, the proximity to St David's was huge bonus, just a mile or so to the cathedral and the city itself. We tried to book the property for the same time next year, but now, much to our disappointment, it's not possible to book for a 4 day break, but only for the week which doesn't suit us at all. A great shame as we really thought we'd hit on a place that we could easily return to on an annual basis. For those who want a large, spacious property that will accept a couple of dogs, and can stay for the week, I can still highly recommend Rhos y Cribed.

If you would like more information on the local area, please call us on 01348 837871 to speak to one of our friendly team.

The Pembrokeshire Coastal Path

  • From stylish Porthclais Farmhouse you can walk to the Pembrokeshire Coast Path, both east and west. The cliffs are spectacular; the bird and wildlife is captivating; the sea and sky a constantly changing panorama. The Coast Path circles the Peninsula offering miles of breathtaking coastline, all within the easy reach of a two mile radius.

Caerfai Beach and Whitesands Beach

  • Caerfai Beach is a short drive away - a family-friendly cove perfect for sandcastles and rock pooling. On the other side of the peninsula Whitesands Beach is a surfer's paradise, at low tide the huge expanse of sand is great for football or cricket, games of chase or flying a kite.

St Davids Farmhouse is near shops, pubs and restaurants

  • St Davids, just a mile away, is Britain's smallest city but really only the size of a village, full of interesting shops, galleries, crafts and a choice of places to eat and drink. Enjoy delicious wholesome food at The Refrectory served in the stunning Cathedral setting. Do try The Bench with its home made £ Italian' ice cream.
  • Oriel Y Parc Caf£ offers breakfast and lunches with locally sourced produce and whilst there Oriel Y Parc Gallery is well worth a visit. Entry is free and featured works include those of Graham Sutherland, who bequeathed a body of his artwork to Pembrokeshire.

TYF St Davids

  • A choice of thrilling activities awaits you, canoeing, coasteering, sailing, surfing and lots more. Activity days available for children and for families to enjoy.

St Davids Golf Club

  • A test of concentration. The wonderful coastal views of Whitesands Bay and Ramsey Island are sure to tempt you from your game on this 9 hole links course.

Solva Harbour and coastal village

  • Solva is a real jewel of the west Wales coast. With its sheltered harbour it is an ideal place to sail, canoe or walk the beach or coast path. Afterwards you can relax and find refreshments while you visit the individual shops and galleries, pubs and restaurants that the village offers.

Solva Woollen Mill

  • One of 26 woollen mills in the county in 1900, this is now the oldest working woollen mill in continuous production in Pembrokeshire. As well as a colourful range of woollen goods, it produces carpets, stair runners and floor rugs and has supplied a wall hanging and a carpet to the Prince of Wales for his Welsh retreat in Myddfai.

St Bride's Bay Water Taxi for Walkers

  • Solva Sailboats operate a water taxi which will take you to your chosen destination from where you can walk back along the stunning Pembrokeshire Coastal Path to Solva. Possible destinations include Porth Clais, Porthmynawydd, St Justinians, Nolton Haven and Little Haven (weather dependent). Phone 01437 720972.

Strumble Head

  • North Pembrokeshire has a dramatic and beautiful coastline. Sometimes wild and windy but always spectacular, Strumble Head is one of the best places in Britain to look out for passing pods of porpoises which surface in the tidal races just out beyond the point. Seals are often spotted in the sea below the lighthouse where a wartime lookout has been converted as a shelter for the public to use.

Fishguard and Goodwick

  • The town of Fishguard is an understated treasure and a busy community. Perched above the Lower town harbour with its boats and jumbled buildings, there are shops and banks, a cinema and sport centre as well as a number of places for the visitor to eat.

Picton Castle

  • Days out in Pembrokeshire should include a trip to Picton Castle. With some of the biggest and oldest trees in West Wales, a maze, a walled garden and a fernery and when you have exhausted yourself in the woodland walks, a cafe serving really tasty homemade food. Pic-ton Castle is a real delight.

Tenby South Pembrokeshire

  • Lots to see and do in Tenby at any time of the year, elegant boutiques, craft shops, museums and art galleries to browse, a large variety of eating places, pubs and ice cream parlours to tempt, boat trips, fishing, sailing, wind and kite surfing, spectacular cliff top walks and Blue Flag beaches to enjoy.

Family Attractions

  • Enjoy fulfilling family days out at Folly Farm, Bluestone Water Park, the Dinosaur Park, Tudor Merchant's House (National Trust), Heatherton Sports Park, Manor Wildlife Park and Colby Woodland Gardens (National Trust).
