Why Bryony Rees White chose Haverfordwest
My husband is originally from Wales and we spent so many lovely family holidays in Pembrokeshire that we decided to buy our own cottage. We particularly like this area from St. Davids to Fishguard, with its beautiful beaches and spectacular coastline, as it is quiet and peaceful but not isolated. Everyone is friendly and there are some amazing places to visit, plus the coast path is easily accessible and provides fantastic walking.
What makes this Cottage unique
The cottage is in a great position and we have views over miles of coastline from the main living rooms. It's in a quiet lane and there is a footpath down to the beach which takes about 15 minutes. We also have a large games room in the barn where we have some noisy table tennis tournaments! The garden is secure and surrounded by fields where we can watch the yellowhammers and skylarks. Great place to see the beautiful sunsets, too.

A great place to stay!
We had some very Welsh weather which was a shame after the summer we’ve had, but what can you expect when two major storms are passing by? We ate out quite a bit, met up with friends and had some good walks in the sunshine too. The cottage was absolutely ideal, and lacks nothing in terms of equipment and facilities. It was very quiet and comfortable, with a lovely view occasionally! Also, it has the largest collection of books on Wales I’ve seen!
Really happy you enjoyed your stay in spite of the weather!
Amazing views. Cottage very comfortable and even got to see the farmers working in their fields harvesting their crops. The area is fantastic for walking and our dog has been spent every day, a most wonderful week.
Our second stay here. As ‘Arnie’ says, we’ll be back.
This is our second visit to this wonderful cottage. Whilst there the conversation was “what month do we come back next year” We’re there as a family of four, with our three dogs who love it as much as we do. From visiting the local beaches, a walk to the local pub for lovely food, where they welcome our dogs or just chilling with the amazing views, it’s perfect. We cannot recommend this cottage enough, Home from Home.
Thank you, Rod and family, for your lovely comments.
So pleased you enjoyed your return to our cottage!
Tucked away for perfect tranquility
Never been to this part of the country before, but certainly will again.
The silence was especially noticeable at night, as were the star filled sky's.
We were blessed with perfect weather which always helps, but the cottage is very well appointed with plenty to do even on the wettest of days.
So much depends on what you are seeking for a holiday but for us there was plenty of walking to do for us and our springer Poppy + there were plenty of decent dog friendly beaches. The whole area made us feel welcome. A big thanks to Bryony who was a perfect host
WE would like to come again
WE spend a wonderfull week at the cottage. Clean and so lovely. Great lokation and every thing we need for a great holiday.. Sunshine, friendly welsh people,. WE realy would like to come again.
We hope you will come again! Thank you for taking the time to write and I'm so pleased you enjoyed your visit to Wales and our cottage.
Cosy cottage with wonderful views.
We had a great week despite some awful weather! There is a lovely walk from the cottage across the fields to a tiny rocky cove with caves and crashing waves. The games room came in very handy, as did the tumble dryer! The cottage was spotlessly clean and warm when we arrived, and we loved being able to sit and watch the ever changing sea and sky. I would definitely recommend this cottage to a friend.
Our closest beach is Aberfelin and you can walk to this in around 15 minutes along a footpath from the cottage. It's a similar distance to reach the coast path which is quite spectacular here, with rugged cliffs and wonderful views.
Traethllyfn, a beautiful large sandy beach, without facilities, is 3 miles, as is Abereiddy with its Blue Lagoon.
Whitesands, a large sandy beach with life guards, shop, cafe and surfing is 8 miles away - boat trips are also available here to view seals and wildlife.
Many other lovely beaches within easy reach.
The use of a car is recommended. The closest main railway station is Haverfordwest, 15 miles from the cottage. There is also a station at Fishguard, 6 miles away, where you can catch the car ferry or take a day trip to Ireland.
Ffynnon Ddofn is midway between two hamlets, Pen Parc and Llanrhian each a mile away.
The villages of Trefin and Croesgoch are a short distance away, and offer good pub food, a garage and mini-market, also Porthgain, a small picturesque fishing harbour with an excellent seafood restaurant and very popular pub.
Fishguard is an interesting small town and harbour, 6 miles north of the cottage, and the tiny city of St.Davids is 6 miles to the south.
Coasteering is becoming increasingly popular and the Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series competition has taken place at the Blue Lagoon, Abereiddy Bay. Abereiddy is just a couple of miles from the cottage and you can often see the competitors practising in the Lagoon and from the surrounding cliffs.
St Davids is the centre for many outdoor activities. It has a good Visitor Centre and there are also regular services in the beautiful Cathedral. Beside the Cathedral are the ruins of the Bishops Palace - a fascinating place to explore. There are also restaurants and some very good art galleries and craft shops.
A few minutes from St. Davids is the St.Justinians Lifeboat station with views (and trips) across to Ramsey Island.
A twenty minute drive will take you to the Presceli Mountains and the beautiful Gwaun valley above Fishguard.
There are historic towns and castles to explore. Pony trekking. Good surfing nearby, coasteering, sailing, kayaking and windsurfing. Rugged cliffs - a bird watchers and geologists delight and sea trips to Island bird sanctuaries, where if you're lucky, you can see the Puffins.
Guide books for all these and many more activities in the cottage.
Pembrokeshire also has its own popular theme park - Oakwood - which is situated at Canaston Bridge about an hours drive away, past Haverfordwest.
Fresh crab, lobster and fish available at Porthgain, 2 miles.
The nearest medium sized town is Haverfordwest, 15 miles away, for a selection of supermarkets, shops and banks.
