Make holiday rental accommodation or a holiday cottage in Pembrokeshire, Wales your home away from home

Pembrokeshire is often cited as the finest coastal area in Europe, with Pembrokeshire cottages being filled by artists and outdoor sport enthusiasts. Nowhere in Pembrokeshire is more than 15 miles from the coast, meaning that which ever holiday house or cottage in Pembrokeshire you take the coastal path, fishing and links golf courses are never far away.

Things to do in Pembrokeshire, Wales

Pembrokeshire tourist information centres are filled to the rafters with activity options, and you will certainly never be short of entertainment during your stay in a Pembrokeshire holiday cottage. Walking holidays on the Pembrokeshire Coastal Path are unrivalled in the UK, as Britain’s only coastal park, the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park has protected this stunning coastline and all the wildlife which calls the Pembrokeshire coast home. Cycle paths cross the park, as well as bridle paths helping cycling and riding holidays to thrive from Pembrokeshire accommodation.

As well as walking holidays, Pembrokeshire offers a vast range of outdoor activities for both the new comer and the expert.

The owner has decorated the whole cottage using local products...from the mill woven bedspreads to the delicious soap and hand creams. Everything is top quality and we felt really pampered! Matthew the Owner was so helpful, making sure we had everything we need...a lightbulb went in a bedside lamp and he went out and replaced it that day. St Davids is such a fab base for seeing the whole peninsula as well as being able to walk out to pubs/restaurants in the evening. We loved it! Especially the quirkiness of having to open the window after a shower! Thank you Matthew

The house was beautifully clean, and very well equipped. We played lots of board games, and my daughter baked cupcakes, having been inspired by the stand mixer in the kitchen! There are lots of places to visit in the area, and the restaurant at the Rose & Crown down the hill is lovely. The owners are very helpful, without being obtrusive. We enjoyed the beautifully fresh eggs from their chickens, and they were also kind enough to post a dressing gown back to us, which we left on the back of the bedroom door! We would definitely stay here again.
