A nice enough place with a good number of bedrooms and a nice little garden out front. Peaceful and quiet but needs a bit of attention to fix overflowing outside drain and missing cupboard doorknobs etc. It was also unclear what to do with recycling.

Fantastic position, a short walk from a beach and within close proximity to great walks along the North Pembrokeshire coast path.The cottage was fine - but we could have done with some information on things like recycling and bin collection. There were also no curtains in one of the bedrooms which the occupant found meant they were woken early. The cooker also was a little awkward. Why was the picture on the landing hanging sideways??!!But overall we loved the ecclesiastical touches given that the cottage overlooked the church.It was a fantastic base for two wonderful weeks of walking the extraordinary coastline.

Very disappointing. Our cottage smelt strongly of stale cigarette smoke, like an old pub, made worse by lots of sickly air freshener to try and cover it up. We opened the doors and windows to try and clear it but it made little difference. The sitting room was too unpleasant to sit in so we spent most of the time in the kitchen. Also, the catch on the downstairs window was broken so couldnt be closed properly, we were told it was going to be fixed but it wasnt not great for security whilst we were out. There were a few other niggles which we wouldnt normally be bothered by but the cottage certainly didnt feel quality as advertised. On the positive side, it was in a lovely location and looks pretty from the outside which is why we booked it. We reported back to Quality Cottages who replied that our contract was with the owner, not with them this arrangement obviously allows them to take no responsibility for problems even though cottages are sold under their name and they take the money. We have stayed in many cottages over the years and never had to complain before, all rather unsatisfactory. We wouldn't use Quality Cottages again.

Reply from: Quality Cottages Team

thank you for your feedback, we were so sorry to hear about the issues you have raised, The owner has apologized for the strong odour of smoke. Quality Cottages does have a no smoking policy in its properties and does inspect properties prior to listing. The missing items were unfortunate and inconvenient and the owner apologizes that they were missing. We have discussed the points raised at length with the owner and I understand we have also emailed you directly with their response.

We really enjoyed the ambience of this cottage; lots about it we loved, the well equipped kitchen, the feel of the place, the garden, the quiet setting, the access to some great places to go (walks, canoeing, beach, St Davids, etc); comfy beds and plenty of clothes storage.We quite enjoyed the quirky design features, shabby chic, use of mantelpieces around radiators and managed the single file movement around downstairs, round tables or narrow passages.We found some things less brilliant: the sitting room would have benefitted from some side lamps so that it was possible to read at night; the seating in the kitchen was not comfortable which was tiring as that was the place where we sat a lot due to light and better internet; the sloping roof in the upstairs bathroom was a bind for my 2m tall husband and the use of a mantelpiece in place of a headboard for one of the beds meant the pillows fall off - and reading in bed was a near impossibility. So lots we loved, some hassles and some not so brilliant ... but overall we loved our stay ...

Lovely character cottage, well-equipped and with a secure garden for the grandson and dog. We loved its location adjoining the graveyard!

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.

Abermawr Beach

  • Sandy, rural beach with pebble bank, backed by earth cliffs, a wildlife-rich marsh area and delightful bluebell woods.
  • The Coastal Path passes Abermawr, as the path heads towards Porthgain, Abereiddy, with the beautiful natural deep lagoon and Abercastle Beach.
  • Low tide exposes the golden sand and buried tree stumps, preserved by salt, the remains of a forest drowned by a sudden flood as an ice sheet melted 8000 years ago


  • Sitting on top of the hill, Mathry's roots are in the Iron Age when the village would have been a defence fort, positioned perfectly for early sightings of any enemy approach. Today Mathry is a peaceful corner of North Pembrokeshire, with small streets entwined across the hilltop, from where stunning views may be enjoyed of the St. Davids Peninsular and across to the Preseli Hills.
  • Mathry is connected to Fishguard and St. Davids by the coastal 404 service.
  • The Farmers Arms is a traditional village pub with real ales, good food, live music, quiz nights and themed evenings.
  • Siop Fach Tea Room And Collectables serve hearty breakfasts until midday, morning coffee and cake, light lunches and afternoon tea until 5pm. The cafe also provides take-away packed lunches. Browse the shop for china, glassware, jewellery and souvenirs.

Priskilly Forest Golf Club is a challenging 9 hole course set in mature parkland and open all year to visitors of any ability.

Melin Tregwynt Woollen Mill

  • Well worth a visit. A working mill with excellent cafe and a shop selling the beautifully crafted blankets, cushions and clothing.
  • The mill has been on this site since the 17th century, when local farmers would bring their fleeces to be spun into yarn and woven into splendid quality Welsh wool blankets.

Pembrokeshire Coast Path

  • The Pembrokeshire Coastal Path encircles the St Davids Peninsula. Enjoy fabulous cliff top walking and breathtaking scenery within easy reach, never more than a couple of miles from Spring Cottage.
  • The path follows the rugged coastline and encircles the peninsula through Whitesands, Porthsele, St Justinians, Porthclais and Caerfai Bay - walk as far as you like and get a dedicated walkers' bus back. In the summer buses call in at all beaches, coves and villages along the coast.


  • A charming village with an attractive harbour. In the 18th and 19th centuries it was a flourishing seaport exporting slate and shale. Now it is a quaint harbour occupied by small fishing boats. Don't miss the opportunity to buy crab fresh off the boat when the fishermen return. Have dinner in - or outside at Sloop Inn, and enjoy some of the finest Fish and Chips at the Shed where locally caught crab and lobster are also served.
  • Harbour Lights Gallery, offers a host of original painting and limited prints - many of local scenes.

St Davids and The Cathedral

  • A colourful coastline with heaps of history, the St. Davids peninsula has been a cultural hotspot for thousands of years. Discover the area's ancestry from Celtic life to Wales' patron saint. The magnificent cathedral is one of the jewels in Pembrokeshire's crown, together with the neighbouring Bishop's Palace. The glorious, fine white sandy beach, Whitesands is just a mile from St. Davids, overlooked by the craggy hill of Carn Llidi, is one of the best surfing beaches in the country.
  • St. Davids is a beautiful and unique city, the smallest in UK, surrounded by some of the finest coastline in Europe. It enjoys a thriving community, with restaurants, galleries, unique shops and cafes, being a favourite location with travellers, pilgrims and surfers.
  • Whitesands Beach is one of the most stunning locations on the Pembrokeshire coast. The wide sandy 'Blue Flag' beach has lifeguard cover in the summer and surf hire and surfing lessons available at the beach - so it is popular for swimming, surfing and water sports of all sorts. When you have had fun on the beach visit the Whitesands Cafe for tasty snacks and refreshments.
  • Caerfai Bay. The scenery is spectacular and the beach, reached down a steep path, is wonderful for rock-pools. If you walk the coastal path around the Peninsula you will find a number of small coves and less accessible beaches - at many times of year, you will have them to yourself!
  • Take a boat trip out to explore the spectacular sea cliffs of Ramsey Island (RSPB) with its wonderful marine and bird life. The North Pembrokeshire rugged coast and offshore islands are home to grey seals, porpoise, dolphins and seabirds including puffins.


  • A pretty, sheltered harbour village with a variety of small craft shops, galleries, restaurants, pubs and places to eat.

TYF Adventure, Preseli Ventures & Horseriding

  • Pembrokeshire is a centre for water-based activities of all sorts. Home of the sport of 'Coasteering', it is also a magnet for surfers and windsurfers, sailors, canoeists and rowers. If you are skilled at your chosen sport the coastline is an open venue but if you are less experienced, the County is well served with centres offering safe, instructor-led activities.
  • There are golf courses to suit all levels of skill - with one of the most dramatic small courses overlooking Whitesands beach, just a mile away.
  • A little further afield at Nolton Haven is a riding school with a difference. Even experienced riders find it hard to top the experience of riding through the surf with Nolton Haven Riding Stables on the lovely beach at Druidston Haven.


  • Situated in the midst of outstanding beauty that blends the allure of sea, towering cliffs, the Preseli Hills, historic churches, ancient standing stones, ideal for gentle and challenging walks, surrounded by the Pembrokeshire Coastal National Park. Galleries, gift and antique shops, with weekly market, cafes, pubs and restaurants.
  • Sailing, kayaking, coasteering, hiking on sunny days from Goodwick and on rainy days, swimming pool, cinema, music festivals and a visit to the Last Invasion Tapestry, which marks the 1797 invasion by Napoleon's French troops defeated by local militia at the Battle of Fishguard. It's said to rival the Bayeux Tapestry.
  • Stena Line offer day trips to Rosslare, Ireland from 5.50 - 12 per person on foot. Relax on board with free WiFi, free movies and stunning views from the deck. Buses provided from the port for a fun day in Wexford, soaking up some Irish culture and heritage.


  • The Parrog A delightful stretch of coastline. The Coast Path twists and turns its way round to the old lifeboat station, sometimes on the beach, at times on the road and at one point crosses a fantastic causeway built of slates in a herringbone pattern
  • Cwm yr Eglwys is a picturesque cove a short drive away. Overlooked by the remains of St Bynach's 12th century church, the sheltered sand and shingle beach is a great family favourite.
  • Eating out in Newport, many highly recommended restaurants and cafes. Newport has been described as the gourmet capital of Pembrokeshire, Llys Meddyg. The Golden Lion, Blas at Fronlas, The Canteen etc

Picton Castle and walled gardens offer guided tours, plus special events including family fun days, outdoor theatre, and music evenings.
