About the property

Cottage in Dinas Cross, Pembrokeshire Coast National Park, Pembrokeshire, Wales - Secluded And Minutes Walk To Its Own Beach

The Stables is a self catering coastal cottage overlooking the sea on the Pembrokeshire coast. It is secluded and is surrounded by 70 acres of its own farmland. There are panoramic views over the sea and up the Preseli mountains from most of the rooms. There are two bathrooms, underfloor heating and the style is 'rustic coastal'. It is private and has lots of space for kids to play safely. The farm was a location for the Moby Dick film directed by John Huston in 1956.

About Mike and Aradhana Perry

The farm is owned by Mike and Aradhana Perry and family. We are slowly converting this great site into a rustic retreat. As well as our passion for this part of the world we want to share our love of good design and sustainable living.

Mike and Aradhana Perry purchased this cottage in 2001

Why Mike and Aradhana Perry chose Dinas Cross

We spent our childhoods in North Pembrokeshire and were very lucky to buy Ffynnonofi in 2001. As soon as we saw this place we were completely blown away. The seclusion, the lay of the land and the views of the sea and Preselis make it very special.

What makes this cottage unique

Wonderful views of the coast and mountains. It's quiet and secluded. Great access to beaches, the coastal path and Dinas village. Wildlife everywhere.

Fabulous! Can't wait to go back with the family!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful property in a Stunning location. Fabulous walks straight from the door and a bit further afield. The Views, especially in the living room are amazing. It was too chilly for us to use the conservatory but will hopefully be back in warmer weather. A stroll down to Ffynonofi's private beach is a must. Sitting on the rocks gazing out to sea, time stood still for a while. Magic.

Lovely cottage with coastal path from the door

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying here. The cottage is comfortable and modern without compromising personality. We watched magnificent sunsets every night from the back picnic table. The coastal path is accessible from the door. The owners have compiled a fantastically informative and useful guest guide, full of walks and recommendations; in fact, we had the best dinner of our two-week trip across Wales in Newport at the Royal Oak while staying here. In short, this section of our trip could not have been improved upon.

Our beach is a 5 minute walk across the fields. It is a slate and rock beach in a dramatic setting. It is secluded and empty most of the time. It is safe for swimming. There are several sandy beaches a few minutes drive away.


We are 4 miles from Fishguard Harbour train station. The nearest airport is Cardiff.


We are 1 mile from Dinas Cross village and 3 miles from Newport and Fishguard.

Further Details:

The Stables is ideally located for some of the highlight spots in the North Pembs National Park. You are close to the sea and the Preseli mountains. There is a beach pub and restaurant just 15 minutes walk across our field and down the coastal path and two pubs in the village. There are a couple of mini markets for basics in the village and Newport has a great butchers and organic health food shop. There is a supermarket in Fishguard.

Pony trekking for adults and children nearby.
