About Llys Bychan

A perfect Pembrokeshire rural retreat just for two

  • At the base of the Strumble Head Peninsula, with its white-washed lighthouse guarding the Irish Sea, this cottage is a perfect small rural retreat just for two (and maybe a faithful friend or a baby!)
  • Warm, welcoming and comfortably furnished with beamed ceiling, a multi fuel stove to sit by and a mixture of modern and antique furniture the cottage is beside a private country lane in a row of 5 rural cottages, close to the pretty sleepy village of St Nicholas.
  • A door from the sitting room opens out onto a small raised terrace with steps down to the secluded, enclosed private rear garden and patio- a sun trap.
  • This is ideal walking country and there is access near to the cottage up to Ffyst Samson, a Neolithic burial chamber on a rocky plateau - fantastic panoramic views of the whole of St Davids Peninsula including Garn Fawr - the artist John Piper had his studio here in a traditional stone cottage.
  • Shopping for groceries is available in nearby Goodwick, Fishguard, Square & Compass and Letterston - award winning fish and chip shop/restaurant here too.
  • The helpful owner (who lives next door) is happy to advise on places to visit in the area.

The cottage was excellent. The enclosed garden was ideal forour dog and the patio made a lovely spot to have a glass of wine in the evening sun. It was very peaceful and had everything we needed. We would have no hesitation in visiting again.

A perfect bolt hole for two in a fantastic location minutes from the coast. Well equipped and beautifully decorated with an exceptionally comfortable bed. The owners live in the adjoining cottage and were very friendly but not intrusive. The enclosed garden was ideal for our two dogs and we were able to walk directly from the cottage to the nearest beach. All in all a 5 star holiday, would highly recommend!
