Cottage Mawr sits at the at the top of Ceibwr Lane in the picture postcard village of Moylegrove and enjoys views over the valleys and into woodland. A short walk down the lane brings you to the Bay itself, which adjoins the Irish sea and is sometimes home to Atlantic grey seals! Here in Pembrokeshire our landscapes are dramatic and spectacular. This is a wonderful place to come with your dogs, as there are so many interesting and fun walks and welcoming places to eat and drink. The sandy beaches of Poppet Sands and Newport Beach are within easy reach.
The cottage is ideally located for walkers and climbers; the Pembrokeshire Coastal Path is within walking distance and there are a number of walks suitable from beginner level up to the most experienced. For those who enjoy cycling, running and jogging, there are numerous challenging routes available. Many artists and photographers find the ever changing skies and seascapes a great source of inspiration. And, of course, there is always time to sit down and just relax and take in the views! There are many excellent pubs and restaurants in the area, ranging from the more modest through to high end dining. The historic town of Cardigan is a short drive away and is home to a cinema and theatre, as well as many independent shops and craftwork.
The Castell Henllys Iron Age Fort reconstuction is situated in the rugged north Pembrokeshire landscape and realistically reproduces life as it was over 2000 years ago. A programme of events including children's acitivities, craft demonstrations and guided tours are held throughout the year.
At walking distance from the cottage there are two lovely woodland walks, and the coastal path can be joined at Ceibwr Bay, at the bottom of the lane. The Bay itself is a significant bird habitat and is well known too for the dramatic and beautiful geological features. Atlantic grey seals are often seen here and dolphins have been spotted from the coastal path. The high landscape at Ceibwr Bay is made up of spectacular cliff folds originally formed by glacial erosion. A visit to the Witches' Cauldron, a collapsed cave within the formation, is highly recommended and you can walk there from the cottages. Lots of watersports and activities take place from Ceibwr Bay and it is possible to arrange for hire of equipment and to take part in locally organsised groups.
Nearby Nearby, and ideal for walking, are Poppit Sands and Newport Beach. Dogs are welcome all year round, with any restrictions on some parts in peak season only. The 'Poppit Rocket' bus service stops near to the cottages and runs to the local beaches several times a day during peak season and on a reduced timetable off peak. Dogs are welcome on board. As well as a round of golf on its beautiful course, the Golf Club at Newport also offers an excellent menu and bar. The views at sunset are breathtaking.The historic town of Cardigan is only a short drive away (or use the Poppit Rocket if you don't feel like driving). As well as restaurants, pubs and local independent shops, there is also Cardigan Castle, a theatre and a cinema. There is a large Tescos too and a lovely farm shop that caters for dogs as well as the larger animals! We are happy to recommend dog friendly places during your stay.

"Very warm welcome"
Lovely warm welcome from Jay, who promptly provided us with a basket of logs and offer of coal. Fresh flowers, biscuits, fresh milk and dog treats a nice touch, Thanks. The cottage itself is a bit tired and dated, but with the welcome extended to dog owners it is less of a worry than if everything was pristine and new. On saying that it is a well equipped and comfortable cottage, near some beautiful beaches and in a lovely village setting.

"Perfect for a quiet, relaxing break away from it all"
Set in a small quiet village the cottage provides an ideal base for exploring the surrounding area. The cottage is comfortable, with facilities that allow you to self cater easily. The paddock, secure garden and nearby beaches make it an ideal holiday destination for your dog also. Having been several times we all look forward to our stay and are always made to feel welcome by Jay.

"Ideal, cosy, dog friendly cottage with good walks close by"
We, that is, my wife, 3 dogs & myself, have stayed in this cottage many times before and we have booked to return again in October 2014 so we like the place a lot. This review covers our stay from 23rd April to 3rd May when the weather was very kind to us. The cottage is located in the quiet village of Moylgrove and a 10 minute walk from Ceibwr Bay where are some fabulous coastal walks are to be had along this stretch of the coastline. The beaches of Newport & Poppit are about 15 minutes drive away and both are great for letting the dogs run around. The main town of Cardigan, where all of the usual high street shops can be found, is also about 15 minutes away. There are many pubs serving good food in the surrounding area, although Moylgrove doesn't have one. For those who like nature, a Welsh wildlife trust reserve can be found just outside Cardigan running along side the river Teifi, when I visited it in late April, an Otter family could be seen feeding and playing outside one of the many hides. The cottage was clean and well provisioned with the things required for a holiday stay such as, a fridge, washing machine, toaster, stove, TV etc. it is heated by electric storage heaters with with a wood burner for those chiller Spring/Autumn nights. The bathroom was very clean and provided with an electric shower, sink and toilet. In the double bedroom, the bed was very comfortable and there was plenty of storage space. Jay, who runs the place, left us alone but was on hand when needed and couldn't do enough for us. The big pluses for us were the small enclosed garden and the nearby paddock where we could let our dogs run off lead without worry. All things considered we had an great stay and enjoyed every minute of it. We have no problem in recommending the cottage to anyone looking to stay in the area.
Thank you for your lovely comments. We are so glad you enjoyed the stay and had the plus of good weather! We look forward to seeing you again in October.
