Guest Book Comments

Lovely cottage, very quirky, very clean and comfortable. Fab setting with walks and great scenery. Would recommend Strumble Head, Tenby with fabulous beaches. Loved the cottage, very relaxing, super garden, very peaceful, just a delight. Owners Deb and Cam very kindly posted an item I had left at the cottage, brilliant. Highly recommend.

Property Description
Artisan Cottage is a wonderfully hand-crafted property located in the middle of Pembrokeshire amid magical countryside with access to all parts of this glorious County.
  • Located only a mile and a half from Llys y Fran reservoir with its fabulous fishing, walking and cycling. The reservoir is one of Wales' finest trout fisheries and a favourite spot for enthusiasts or beginners who just want to “have a go”. 
  • This quaint property has 3 bedrooms - ideal for small families to explore Pembrokeshire. It has been lovingly hand-crafted over 4 years by the owners who are both local artists wit a number of features upcycled to create an inspirational, magical bolthole.
  • This is a really cosy cottage with exposed stone walls, hand painted cabinets and "funky" features as well as a glorious wood burner at the centre of the property. The lounge lights rise and fall on pulleys so that you can adjust the lighting moods to make the cosiest of places to relax.
  • There is stainless steel, hand-created BBQ for outdoor living so that you can enjoy the views which stretch for miles across rolling countryside.
  • The cottage is literally in the middle of Pembrokeshire, 9 miles from Fishguard, 18 miles from St Davids and 16 miles from Tenby – opening up the whole of this magical county for you to explore. It also is at the base of the Preseli mountains and therefore fabulous for country walks. Up to 2 small dogs are welcome.





About the Area
Llys y Fran Reservoir and Country Park
  • Tucked in amongst the lovely Preseli Hills, just a mile and a half from the cottage, Llys y Fran reservoir is a managed country park with a great range of activities – fishing, sailing, walking or cycling. 
  • It is a fine place to learn to fish - the waters are stocked with brown trout to maintain levels, tuition is available as well as 30 small boats.  Tickets can be purchased from the shop. 
  • Choose an activity or just take in the wildlife and woodland and the stunning vista of a 100ft dam rising up in the middle of quiet countryside. After your day out relax in the café and tea room with beautiful views from the sunny patio. 
Walking in the Preselis
  • The Preseli Hills which surround the cottage are mostly within the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park and offer a range of established walks from easy to long-distance. Find information about your chosen walk from the local Tourist Information Offices, discover a wealth of pre-historic sites and marvel at the phenomenal stone structures created without the benefit of modern lifting machines!
Newport – beaches, eateries – the Golden Lion, Llys Meddyg
  • The attractive village of Newport is half an hour’s drive away and well worth a visit. With a range of useful facilities – a bank, post office, food and other shops – it also offers some excellent eateries, from high quality pub food in the Golden Lion to more exclusive fare at Llys Meddyg.
  • The old port of the town is the Parrog with old quay walls and lime kilns. The river is full of moorings for small craft by the yacht club and the water can fall to a level which can be crossed (with great care) at low tide. At other times the golf club opposite as well as a wide sandy beach are a short drive away round the town. Newport boasts two beaches as well as windsurfing and dinghy sailing clubs. 
The Coastal Path at Pwllgwaelod
  • The inlet at Pwllgwaelod is a small sheltered sandy beach with rocks and cliffs on either side. You can join the coastal path here and walk around Dinas Island – a headland of land, not actually an island, and a lovely walk – to Cwm yr Eglwys. It is a short way back to your starting point at Pwllgwaelod and well worth the effort!
Gwaun Valley - Bessies pub
  • The Dyffryn Arms, known locally as Bessie’s, is at Pontfaen, deep in the Gwaun Valley - a throwback to times past with beer poured from a jug! It is noted amongst locals as the best pub in Wales! The Gwaun Valley is a lovely tree-filled escape from the modern world and after a walk to refresh and renew your spirits, Bessie’s is the perfect stop for a rejuvenating pint!
CyclingNarberth – Eat, Drink and Shop
  • The ancient village of Narberth is renowned in Wales’s history and culture but as a holiday destination it is a delight! A bustling village atmosphere with useful shops as well as individual emporia offering a great line in clothes, gifts and art. Ultracomeda is an atmospheric deli and delicious place for lunch and the Queen’s Hall is a busy community venue for music and exhibitions. Not to be missed.
Tenby town and boat trips
  • The lovely beaches which stretch out to either side of the town are only part of the explanation for Tenby’s popularity as a holiday resort. The walled town has a network of tight lanes full of terraced cottages and little shops redolent of earlier years. It remains popular today with the town skirted round by the Pembrokeshire Coastal Path and offering lovely views to Caldey Island. 
  • Take a boat trip over to visit the island where Cistercian monks farm the island and make chocolate and cheese, shortbread and perfume. 
Family days out
  • Pembrokeshire is full of places to take your family, young and old. 
  • Historic venues – castles in various stages of ruin with Pembroke Castle offering the most complete example. Castell Henllys is a reconstruction of an iron-age village with impressive round houses and an interpretation centre. Look out for re-enactments and historic fairs. 
  • The flavour of life in earlier years is on show at Scolton Manor and the Country Park gives scope for your children to burn off steam. 
  • Take a tour of Picton Castle house and enjoy the beautiful gardens. 
  • There are theme parks at Oakwood and Heatherton, Manor Wildlife Park, Folly Farm and the Dinosaur Park – plenty to entertain the family!
