The cottage is laid out in a studio-style with open rafters, natural stone walls and stained glass windows.
The entrance goes into the kitchen/dining room which is well equipped for the enthusiastic or casual cook with a gas hob/electric grill and oven. The fridge has an ice box for a small amount of frozen food and there is a wood burning stove and a pulley clothes airer.
Stepping through the archway, in a very thick stone wall, is the rest of the cottage. We have tried to think of everything you might need for relaxation or poor weather days. There are plenty of books, games, films and CDs to enjoy. The comfortable double bed has a cosy, king-size quilt and a choice of feather or synthetic pillows.
The separate shower-room has recently been updated and has constant hot water and a heated towel radiator with plenty of towels.
|Further details outdoors||
There are private gardens with a south-facing courtyard garden and garden furniture overlooking a wild and secluded meadow. Another area outside the front door catches the evening sun and has a table and chairs - perfect for that early evening drink.

The West Wales/Pembrokeshire region
Nowhere are the beautiful beaches and imposing headlands of Wales more accessible to the walker than in Britain’s only coastal national park, Pembrokeshire. This remote corner of the south-west is home to the longest of the three National Trails, the Pembrokeshire Coast Path – a 186 mile long meandering odyssey that hugs the surf between St Dogmaels and Amroth.
The walking is enthralling, with most of the miles on narrow cliff-top paths that run over headlands and down to the sea. The trail passes through some breathtaking scenery. From rugged headlands that jut stubbornly out into thunderous seas, to narrow crescents of bone-white sand, lapped upon by a cerulean ocean. Sea birds fill the skies whilst porpoises, seals and even dolphins vie for your attention in the waves.
From the door of The Old Pottery you can walk straight out on to the Preselis. The bluestones of Stonehenge come from Pembrokeshire’s Preseli Hills, and were hewn from the rugged tor of Carn Menyn. Close to Carn Menyn runs the Golden Road, an ancient track that would have been a main trade route between Wessex and Ireland when bears and wolves still roamed the valleys.
Nearby, Iron Age earthworks and burial cairns adorn a loftier summit. A stone circle named Beddarthur (Arthur’s Grave), draws attention to the legend of the Mabinogion. Arthur and his knights crossed the ridge and fought Twrch Trwyth, the magic boar, on Cwmcerwyn.
History and legend aside, walking in the Preseli Hills makes a refreshing interlude from the stunning coast path. The views from the tops seem to go on forever.
