I needed to find a cottage quickil n the spur of the moment, Easy to bookd and it was great value ,it's quirky set in an amazing part of Pembrokeshire, although the weather was pretty bad outside it was warm and dry, especially with the fire
Am so glad you enjoyed your stay, despite the weather, and the cottage provided a snug refuge. Many thanks for leaving it clean and tidy.
Cosy cottage in a gorgeous location
This cottage is in a great position for exploring beautiful Pembrokeshire. It's peaceful with a small but pleasant garden and you can walk to The Old Sailors for dinner / drink on a gorgeous beach front. Both Newport and Fishguard are nearby and we drove to St David's for coasteering. It was a perfect base for an active family with two 10 year olds.
Am so pleased your holiday in Wales was a real success, and many thanks for taking the trouble to write this review. Best wishes, Mike
Fantastic location, great layout. As other reviewers have said it is old fashioned in decor but we wouldn’t say that was a negative. Excellent value for money. We will definitely return and recommend.
Great location. Lovely little cottage.
Wonderful few days away. Weather was fabulous which helped. Lovely walks in the area. Worth a visit.
Glad it worked out so well! Come again. Mike
Nice little place at a nice price!
Pencraig is small, but had everything a family of 4 could need. A little dated in its decor, but cosy with a roaring fire! Superb location, just minutes from the local beach. Great places to visit nearby and close to the coastal path for walkers.
Car: 2.5 hours from Cardiff, 4.5 hours from west London. Cottage to the end of the M4 Motorway is 1.15 hours
Train: to Fishguard Harbour station is 4 miles, then taxi or bus.
Air: to Cardiff International Airport
Sea: Fishguard - Rosslare ferry. 3.50 hour crossing
Southern Wales region
The north coast of Pembrokeshire has cliffs and coves, places to explore and enjoy. Visitors will find attractive and affordable places to visit and eat in. The National Park includes a swathe of open country in the Prescelli hills which are very close to Dinas village (1 mile). Pwllgwaelod is a sandy cove facing Fishguard bay, and Cwm-yr-Egwys a similar cove facing Newport Bay. These beaches provide safe swimming and have natural shelter. The area has plenty of history - ancient chapels, monuments and burial sites, and St Davids Cathedral.
Riding, boats and swimming, walking, and some great off-road bike trails make N Pembs a place for where you can enjoy activities at reasonable prices and without crowds. There's a lot of culture, Brynhenllan village having a number of well known artists as residents. The St Davids music festival in the cathedral, the Fishguard Music Festival and other music activities such as Cardigan Eisteddfod, male voice choirs all provide different and memorable evenings. Being outside busy Newport can be a bonus in the summer season. You can borrow my 14ft Skipper dinghy if you're a competent sailor. There is a bike at the cottage, and another available.
I'm an international agricultural journalist, and founder and editor of Practical Farm Ideas magazine. Pencraig was bought when I sold the dairy herd, as a lifetime country retreat where the family - I have four grown-up children and grandchildren - can get to and enjoy privacy in a way that's impossible in hotels, parcs and other mass-market venues.
Owner purchased this Cottage in 1996
Why Owner chose Dinas Cross
We found Pwllgwaelod beach shortly after moving to West Wales, and thought it magical, but for years were unable to re-discover it. Then we found Pencraig was for sale, and there was no question that this was the place to buy. It's small, but plenty large enough for a family of four to get a great holiday. Prices: for some reason the rate list insists on saying the rates are 'From £...' . It's not 'from'. That's the price we ask you to pay. There are no meters, so gas, electric TV etc all included. No wi-fi - sorry.
What makes this Cottage unique
"This place hasn't changed in 40 years" a passer-by remarked to me when I was doing the grass last year, and he's not far wrong. The coast is uncrowded and just not really discovered by the holiday industry, and long may that continue.
