From a hilltop position on the coast of Pembrokeshire, this quaint and unique home offers stunning river views and close proximity to castles, mountains and the best attractions in the county.

Elevated above the village of St Dogmaels and overlooking the River Teifi, this superb property offers a different take on a traditional Pembrokeshire holiday. Boasting unusual features including a secret raised garden and a fabulous attic bedroom, your accommodation sleeps six and is within easy reach of adventures. Walking, cycling and fishing are just a few examples, but there are also castles, attractions and even mountains to investigate. When the day is done, snuggle up by the fire pit and watch the sunset over the estuary with a glass of wine.

Quirky and comfortable with cheerful decor, the property is perfectly suited to families and small groups. Put the kettle on and gather in the homely kitchen to enjoy a brew at the breakfast bar, or whip up something special and take a seat in the lounge/diner in the glow of the wood burner. The accommodation is spread across three levels and boasts timber beams and unique features at every turn, and you’ll discover plenty of nooks to curl up and relax in or play board games or on the Xbox. All three bedrooms are a treat with interesting views and snug beds, all sharing the generous family bathroom. There are two private gardens at your disposal, one of which has tiered levels and is accessed via steep stone steps leading from the decked balcony on the second floor.

Heading to the beach, Poppit Sands is a must for surfers, beach dwellers and walkers alike, 2 miles away, and the sea is renowned for sea-fishing opportunities. Cardigan and Cilgerran Castles are both within 4.5 miles for history seekers, but the village itself is home to the 12th-century abbey. Once you have worked up an appetite, you’ll have a choice of pubs and eateries to tempt your tastebuds.

A beautifully renovated property in the lovely village of St Dogmaels. You get stunning views across the valley to the River from the top bedroom window and garden. Very thoughtfully equipped, even providing dvds to watch or games to play on rainy days.

We were happy with the cottage - quirky & unusual but it turned very cold towards the end of the week & no wood had been left in the cottage & only 3 logs were to be found in the woodshed which were damp. Consequently wee were not able to utilise the wood burning stove. It was also stated in the house information that we were not to use the overridRead moree button on the heating. We were very cold. Parking near the cottage was sometimes an issue. Hide

Excellent location for many beautiful beaches and coastal walks with only a few miles. The house had everything we needed and more. Little touches like treats and bowls for the dogs made us and our furry friend feel very welcome. We would recommend and may well return!

We really enjoyed our stay at Adfer. St Dogmael's is a lovely village and the property is a short walk to the village shop and a good fish and chip shop! Adfer was comfortable and well equipped and the owners were lovely to deal with.
