A relaxing living room has quality sofas, log fire and leads to the adjoining kitchen with washing machine, new electric stove, fridge, microwave etc. New Royal Doulton tableware (2011) adds an extra touch, and we have quality unbreakable crockery for children and outside use. The two bedrooms, one twin and the other double, are the other side of the hall. The bathroom is new (2008) with a new boiler for water and central heating. There's a travel cot and high chair.
The cottage is furnished as a home with good quality beds and sofas etc, and you'll find an interesting selection of books, music, paintings. The idea is to provide you with more than a shell in which to stay, but a cottage offering much more than the standard rental or hotel room.

The West Wales/Pembrokeshire region
The north coast of Pembrokeshire has cliffs and coves, places to explore and enjoy. Visitors will find attractive and affordable places to visit and eat in. The National Park includes a swathe of open country in the Prescelli hills which are very close to Dinas village (1 mile). Pwllgwaelod is a sandy cove facing Fishguard bay, and Cwm-yr-Egwys a similar cove facing Newport Bay. These beaches provide safe swimming and have natural shelter. The area has plenty of history - ancient chapels, monuments and burial sites, and St Davids Cathedral.
Riding, boats and swimming, walking, and some great off-road bike trails make N Pembs a place for where you can enjoy activities at reasonable prices and without crowds. There's a lot of culture, Brynhenllan village having a number of well known artists as residents. The St Davids music festival in the cathedral, the Fishguard Music Festival and other music activities such as Cardigan Eisteddfod, male voice choirs all provide different and memorable evenings. Being outside busy Newport can be a bonus in the summer season. You can borrow my 14ft Skipper dinghy if you're a competent sailor. There is a bike at the cottage, and another available.
