The owner, Louise has a Health Service background but in 2007 gave birth to triplet boys and since that time has thrown her energy into raising her beautiful family. Louise has lovingly prepared her Pembrokeshire cottage to a very high standard and is really keen to make your stay at Y Cwm as pleasurable as possible!
Y Cwm, originally 2 farm workers cottages has been passed down from generation to generation of farming stock and has been in her husband's family for 100 years or more. It was sensitively renovated to retain its vernacular architecture and retain as many of its original features as possible. From the outside it still appears as 2 cottages, but the accommodation from within is one to provide more living space.
The cottage itself was lived in by Louise and her family for 11 years prior to renovating another property to accommodation her large family. It is the family's intention to always retain 'Y Cwm' and pass it down once again to their children.
In the meantime, the cottage can be enjoyed by holiday makers and as it is so central to many of the County's towns, beaches and places of interest, it makes for a perfect place to stay, be it a short and longer term break!
Y Cwm benefits from being situated in a very centralised location in the heart of Pembrokeshire. It is a charming little cottage bursting with character and offers many luxury features to make your stay as enjoyable as possible. If you wish to stay in a traditional stone Welsh cottage, this is the property for you!
A delightful cottage! Extremely well equipped, clean, tastefully decorated, all mod cons, spacious and extremely well positioned for exploring the North and South areas of the Pembrokeshire coast line. We visited over New Year so weather was wintry (but dry) and the cottage was lovely and cosy to come back to in the evenings. Despite the short days we made full use of daylight hours and crammed in endless sights and beauty spots, here are a few - a four hour scramble at Strumble Head (breathtaking!), St. Brides Beach with a walk along the coastal path, Little Haven for pub lunch overlooking the beach, amazing guided tour (by Gareth) of Pembroke Castle to see where King Henry Vii was born (very educational for my 10 year old son who is about to focus on the story of the "Princes in the Tower" in history at school), a very orange sunset stroll along Tenby Beach, a romp through Colby Woodland Gardens to beautiful Amroth village and beach, visit to the home of my literary hero Dylan Thomas in the most beautiful village of Laharne with its castle and picturesque setting on River Taf - had a tradional Welsh tea with delicious Welsh cakes (alfresco!) on Dylan's terrace, the imposing but serene St David's Cathedral and Bishop's Palace with late lunch in the lovely Bishop Pub ........all this and even more! There is so much to see in the vicinity, I think one could spend three months there and not see it all! The beauty and history of the area surpassed my expectations and all this made so accessible by the lovely ("haven" in it's own right!) Y Cwm. P.s. I don't work for the Welsh National Tourist Board but perhaps I should apply! I can't wait to see even more of Wales!
We booked a weekend stay so that we could showcase Pembrokeshire to a friend who was staying with us. The cottage is in a very convenient location for exploring the Pembs coastline , Narbeth , St David's and Milfordhaven . There were some lovely restaurants and gastro pubs nearby , (you do need a car) we were spoilt for choice. The cottage itself was decorated beautifully ,well equipped and spotlessly clean. The cottage had a lovely homely feel and plenty of room to sit outside to enjoy the last of the summer sun.
Louise ensured that we had everything we needed and checked with us beforehand to ensure that we had directions to the cottage. Excellent customer service .
I would definitely recommend this cottage . A home from home!!!
Thank you Louise.
We had a wonderful time in Pembrokeshire. The hiking was beautiful and it was made all the more enjoyable knowing that we had a delightful and comfortable place to hang out. The books and maps of the local area were much appreciated. Louise was an attentive hostess; we would recommend this place to stay to friends and family.

Beautiful cottage! Louise and her parents were so nice to us.
You will find everything you need there and comfy beds.
Cons: just a bit close to the road... That's it!
We stayed at Easter for a week of walking with two kids and the dog. We arrived to a welcome pack from Louise which most appreciated. The kids got a little Easter gift which thrilled them. We were able to wash walking gear and dog towels every night with detergent provided at the cottage.
Cottage is extremely clean ,comfortable, spacious and warm, once we sorted out how to use the heating.
We did some fantastic walks out of a book and used the maps left for our use by Louise at the cottage. We had a mixed bag with the weather from hail and rain to lovely sunshine. We managed to get lunch on the beach a couple of days.
Louise was most helpful when we had any questions, a quick text and she always replied.
There is a great bakery in Johnston the nearby village that did lovely bread and great baguettes for your pack up.
We mainly ate in at night after a days walking, we found the only negative of the holiday is some of pubs did not welcome dogs and this was a problem on days with bad weather and the fact we were not allowed to leave our dog unattended at the cottage.
Would highly recommend this as a place to stay and would definitely return.
We recently had the most beautiful stay...arriving on Boxing Day, the cottage had been decorated for Christmas so we were able to continue our festivities in a home from home (and more). A gorgeous little hamper had been left for us too with was a lovely touch.
The cottage itself was very spacious, beautifully decorated and accessorised. The beds were very comfortable...the kids loved the bunks!
In the kitchen there was everything possibly we could have needed (for me to make a Christmas dinner!).
The cottage was easy to find and location wise great; short distance in between Milford Haven and Haverfordwest.
We are going through our diaries to plan another trip as it was so perfect. Thank you!
Y Cwm is set within easy reach of 2 beautiful marina's, namely Neyland and Milford Haven where numerous cafes, restaurants and gift shops can be enjoyed by all.
