Fishguard with its harbour is 4.5 miles away and Newport is 5 miles away.

National Park walks are but a stone's throw away as is the River Gwaun, which flows leisurely by. Free trout fishing is available on the owner's land (license can be obtained from the village Post Office). The Dyffryn Arms, also known as Bessie's Pub, a famous traditional pub, is within walking distance and serves beer straight from the cask. There are shops, cafes and restaurants at both Newport and Fishguard. The valley is sheltered by the Preseli mountains and is surrounded by an abundance of beautiful beaches, including the sandy beach at Newport stretching for almost a mile. Sailing, canoeing, kayaking, and other watersports available from the beach. Penlan Uchaf Gardens offer cream teas and a leisurely walk around the gardens, which have spectacular views. There are two micro breweries in the area offering tours and tasting sessions.

We wanted to be able to access the incredible countryside from the doorstep … and we got it . Views from the house are wonderful . A well equipped house and fortunately a great farm shop a short drive away and our family getaway was complete .

Mrs S,

This was a lovely holiday cottage is a peaceful and pleasant location. Excellently equipped kitchen and very comfortable living space, enough room for us all (5 adults and 2 older kids). I thought it was actually nicer than it looked in the pictures. Hiking from the front door was a bonus!

Ms De V,

Lovely house in a beautiful, quiet location. The house is well equipped and clean and the garden and lawn is nice and well maintained. The owners are friendly and helpful. They provided tea, coffee, milk and Welsh cakes on arrival which was much needed after a long journey.

Mrs S,

We thought the cottage was absolutely lovely, and enjoyed walking the footpaths which go in all directions around Cwm Gwaun. The pub was great too. Fishguard and Newport were good destinations, and the coastline around both was good for walking, particularly Dinas Head.

Mr S,

Fabulous location for a quiet, back to nature break.

Mrs S,

What a lovely property loved by all of us from 2yo to 48yo! The hosts were really lovely and available to help with anything. The property is well equipped (far beyond our needs) and the cottage itself is beautiful. The location is stunning, peaceful and beautiful. I was initially worried about the river being so close (and cows) from the pictures, but was so perfect as there is a safety fence and kept my kids in the garden playing while I soaked up the beauty of the surrounds! It was such a beautiful scene I wish I could have painted it. I love this property of all the properties I’ve stayed in in England this one is number one. I will definitely return to this beautiful property and location again. Thank you for the lovely break albeit too short!!

Mrs T,
