Property code: 65545

Escape to the Pembrokeshire Coast for an unforgettable couple’s break characterised by a roaring wood burner, scenic cliff-top walks and more beautiful beaches than you can shake a stick at. Idyllically positioned within 1 mile of St. David’s historic streets, this cosy property is a great base for discovering secluded bays and pretty fishing villages and the large garden is a treat for dining alfresco on summer afternoons.

Vaulted ceilings, wooden beams and a wood burner set the scene from the moment you step inside this single-storey cottage. Leave your sandy shoes in the hallway and enter the open-plan living space ready to relax with a glass of wine. Bi-fold doors lead outside to the garden, so you’ll have a pleasant view at breakfast time. There’s a handy wet room, and at bedtime, the bedroom features a king-size bed for a restful night’s sleep. You’ll have everything you need to prepare your favourite meals, so be sure to pick up some tasty local produce and sizzle up something special.

There’s plenty to amuse visitors of all tastes and interests throughout this beautiful corner of Pembrokeshire. The avid adventurer will be spoilt for choice when it comes to water sports, and the coast path is an excellent route for walkers of all abilities. It is a pleasant stroll down to the nearest beach at Porthllisky 0.5 miles away, or Whitesands Bay 3 miles away. Porthgain 8.5 miles away has a delightful harbour, and you’ll be well catered for if you are a fan of seafood as the popular restaurant here serves the finest catch of the day. When visiting St. David’s, it is a must simply to visit the stunning cathedral, and there is a museum and the iconic Bishops Palace to investigate too.

Beautifully appointed barn conversion, very comfortable. Ideal location for walkers.., some of the inland footpaths require Wellington boots.

Cottage was very good, ( 3 in a row) although we did not know that the Farm House was also an holiday let. Looking out of the back windows you can see them as well as they can see you. There was no issues at all just a little surprised to see other holiday people at the rear. Near to Coast Path, ideal for walkers etc.

Our second stay in this beautifully converted barn. Comfortable, warm, quiet, full of character. The rooms are spacious, much larger than a typical holiday rental. Ideally placed for the amenities of St Davids and the surrounding area.

We thoroughly enjoyed our week here. What a superb location waking up to sea views every morning., hearing the sound of sheep and with spectacular views across the countryside. The cottage was spotlessly clean, well equipped, comfortably furnished and very comfy bed. It was faultless. An excellent and generous welcome pack was provided, one of the Read morebest we have had in a holiday cottage. The grounds were well kept and our dog loved playing outside. Highly recommended Thank you to the owners Hide

Quiet, peaceful, cosy, warm and comfortable. A stylish restoration of a character building. Superb views. Convenient for St Davids and other beauty spots. We have self-catered many times in Pembrokeshire, and this was the best cottage we have stayed at.
