Converted cowshed set on a quiet farm at the heart of Lydstep, a quiet village with a popular pub, pretty beach and easy access to the Pembrokeshire Coast Path.

Get back to basics with a stay in the pretty Welsh village of Lydstep, staying in a charming 17th-century property that’s moments from the village pub and just half a mile from a sandy beach. Located on the renowned Pembrokeshire Coast Path, you’ll never feel short-changed for outdoor excursions when staying in this undeniable beauty spot. Perfect for families, this farmland accommodation has been lovingly converted to provide a welcoming home-from-home base. It’s even powered by solar panels, ideally suited to those eco-conscious holidaymakers who prefer a sustainable stay.

Featuring traditional decor throughout, this quirky cottage offers more than enough space for four guests and is arranged over one storey. Socialising becomes effortless in the open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner, a space that’s punctuated by warming gas fire that emits a cosy glow. Prepare meals together in the well-equipped kitchen and sit down to mealtimes together. The lounge boasts comfortable sofas to sink into at the end of each day and a TV/DVD for your entertainment. Completing the property is two bedrooms, one double and one twin, along with access to a shared garden with lawn space and furniture.

Offering a peaceful hidden gem in the bustling Pembrokeshire Coast National Park, Lydstep boasts an inviting local pub and a beautiful beach that’s certainly off the beaten track. With walking boots in tow, be sure to follow some of the impressive Pembrokeshire Coast Path to take in the area’s rugged seascapes, keeping a close eye out for seals basking by the water along the way. Following this path leads you to the nearby town of Tenby (4 miles), an ever-popular holiday destination with plenty of history to explore. Walk along its original town walls, pay a visit to the castle and ruins and perhaps board a boat to Caldey Island (7 miles) to pick up locally made perfume and chocolate.

This cottage is perfectly placed for access to Tenby, especially with the bus stop right outside! Its also a nice short walk to Lydstep beach and the Headland. Local pub across the road means reasonably priced meals if needed. Amenities in the property were great, everything you needed. Plenty of parking space too.

We have stayed at the property on numerous occasions and would highly recommend. Easy short walk down to join the coast path. The addition of tea, coffee, milk etc was a lovely surprise this year and very welcome after a 5 hour drive.
