This beautifully converted cart house enjoys a rural setting just outside the village of Dinas between Newport and Fishguard on the north Pembrokeshire coast.

There are several good pubs and restaurants to enjoy in the area and numerous coves and beaches to explore including Cwm yr Eglwys, Aberfforest, Pwllgwaelod, Parrog and Newport.

The Strumble Shuttle coastal walker's bus passes the end of the farm lane and there are lovely walks on the coastal path and the Preseli hills.

The owners have made and painted much of the furniture in the cottage creating a very individual feel.

The cart house is "upside down" with the sitting room upstairs and everything else downstairs.

The original arched cart house opening is now glazed and offers lovely views of the garden and over the fields beyond to Newport bay.

The large OPEN PLAN KITCHEN AND DINING ROOM has a high A-symmetric ceiling, black and red quarry tiled floor and is fitted with a range of painted Shaker style fitted units. There is a dishwasher, electric oven and hob, microwave oven, fridge/freezer. A washer/dryer is also provided in the utility cupboard. The Dining area has an old pine farmhouse table with 4 chairs.

The BEDROOM is downstairs and has a 5' king size bed which can be split into two 2'6" singles if required (please request if you want singles as it will usually be made up as a king). The bedroom is spacious and has another lovely original cart house window as well as a handmade driftwood wardrobe, dressing table, side tables and a comfortable chair.

The adjacent BATHROOM has a modern suite of white spa bath with shower over, WC and hand basin.

Upstairs is the comfortable SITTING ROOM which has open A frame rafters and wooden floor. It is furnished with two comfy sofas, an unusual "chick hatcher" chest/coffee table, TV with DVD player and occasional furniture.

The West Wales/Pembrokeshire region

Pembrokeshire's attraction is its peace and tranquility which has a hypnotic effect on visitors who return year after year, if not more frequently. The coastline and villages have changed very little over the centuries.

The superb sandy beaches and quiet coves, once the haunt of smugglers, are around every twist and turn of the coastal lanes. Both on the coast and in the Preseli hills there is a profusion of beautiful wild flowers, encouraged by the mild climate, high sunshine hours and influenced by the Gulf Stream. Pembrokeshire is a haven for nature lovers with foxes, badgers and birds too numerous to mention literally on your doorstep.

Newport is defined by its beach - the name in Welsh, Trefdraeth, simply means "Town on the Sands". Newport houses are now amongst the most expensive in West Wales, not simply because of the character of the town or the "golden" sands, but because it is such a complete holiday centre on a par with Tenby, Saundersfoot & St. Davids.


Newport has a diverse range of artist's studios & galleries, pubs, restaurants, small shops (including a bookshop and a candle shop) plus a Boat Club and a Golf Club, coupled with a wide range of excellent walks along the coastal path and up to Carn Ingli for the panoramic views. Perhaps now you can see why this little town has become so popular, not only as a place to live, but as an all round holiday centre.

Traeth Mawr (big Beach) is a long stretch of sand, safe for bathing, windsurfing, body boarding and sailing. Newport Estuary is a haven for wild life and is a favourite among bird watchers. A walk from the Iron Bridge down the side of the estuary leads to the Parrog where there is a small beach, campsite Café Bar and Boat Club. During the summer months the Boat club organise various activities for children including sailing, crab lining and occasional BBQ's. On a summer evening the Parrog is a good place to watch the sunset.

Carn Ingli (Angel Mountain) Once a volcano (last erupted 450 million years ago) stands 350 m high above Newport. It is quite easy to climb but the summit is rocky. Once at the top there are fantastic views over Newport and north to the Llyn Peninsula. On a clear day Cadair Idris is visible on the horizon

The Gwaun Valley approximately 3 miles from Newport is a beautiful glacial valley which is wonderful for bird watching, walking and peace and quiet. The residents of the valley still celebrate the New Year on January 13th after the Julian calendar as they didn't accept the Gregorian calendar which we all now use. Step back in time and have a pint at the Dyffryn Arms (Bessie's) where the beer is still poured from the cask.
