The West Wales/Pembrokeshire region
A perfect holiday cottage destination, Pembrokeshire boasts superb beaches, stunning scenery, and a plethora of activities including family attractions like Oakwood Leisure Park and Folly Farm. Best of Wales have numerous holiday cottages in Pembrokeshire. Why not try a spot of dolphin or whale watching out of St Davids, or surfing at many of the areas fabulous surf beaches. The Pembrokeshire Coast National Park which includes over 621 miles (1000 km) of footpaths and bridleways, walking is an ideal way of exploring the beauty of the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park. The Pembrokeshire Coast National Trail is a spectacular 186 miles (299 km) long National Trail covering some of the most varied coastal scenery in Britain, stretching from St Dogmaels in the north to Amroth in the south. Trails in the park offer over 200 circular walks, ranging from a one hour stroll to an invigorating 9 miles (15km) cross-country hikes.
Pembrokeshire has some of the very best surf beaches in Wales, with breaks for every level of surfer. With little interruption of South Westerly swells beaches like Newgale and Freshwater West pick up any swell going. In bigger storm swells travelling a little further to beaches like Abermawr or Freshwater East will help you find more sheltered breaks, often with great offshore conditions when other sites are blown out. Despite the number of excellent spots, there will usually be somewhere to surf that the crowds haven't reached, and even the most popular tourist beaches like Whitesands and Newgale only become busy during the summer months. There's a great atmosphere in Pembrokeshire, with a relaxed surf culture. If the swell doesn't arrive then there are lots of other activities to keep you outdoors!
St Davids, Pembrokeshire is Britain's smallest city. It is a beautiful and unique city surrounded by some of the finest coastline in Europe. The city of St Davids lies on the River Alun and is located on the St David's peninsula. Granted city status by Queen Elizabeth II because of the presence of the cathedral, St Davids is in reality a small beautiful village. Situated within the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park St Davids is surrounded by spectacular coastal scenery renowned for its beauty and abundance of wildlife.
Whitesands Bay, one of the many beautiful beaches in the area, carries the prestigious European Blue Flag Award. St Davids Cathedral has been the dominant presence since the 12th century and was a popular pilgrimage destination throughout the Middle Ages and indeed remains so to this day attracting thousands of visitors every year. Adjacent to the cathedral stand the magnificent ruins of the medieval Bishops Palace. The city of St Davids has a great deal to offer every visitor. Many people have fallen to the charm of St Davids including current New Zealand rugby Coach Graham Henry who lists St Davids as his favourite place in the World.
Solva is known as the jewel of the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park, lies only a few miles to the East and is situated on the beautiful West Wales coast. An ideal location for walking, sailing, fishing or simply relaxing amongst the shops, galleries and restaurants set in beautiful scenery. It lies on a deep ravine at the mouth of the River Solva and consists of a long street ending at the small harbour. You will find several local pubs providing great food and atmosphere, there is also a local shop that includes a post office, newsagent and many holiday items such as fishing tackle and beach items. From Solva harbour you can take a boat trip to view the local wildlife or even a fishing trip to catch some fresh fish for a nice BBQ. Quay jumping is a favourite past time of local children, as is crab fishing. Sailboat and water activity courses can also be booked from the quay.
Ramsey Island is well worth a visit during your stay. It is a dramatic off-shore island, a mile off Pembrokeshire’s coast. The island covers approximately 600 acres and features 400ft high cliffs, which teem with breeding seabirds and is now owned by the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds. Ramsey Island is accessible by a regular boat service from St Justinian’s, which crosses the spectacular Ramsey sound, with its infamous and treacherous reef known as the Bitches. The island is home to several thousand seabirds in the season, including razor-bills, kittiwakes, fulmers, chough, guilliemot, raven, peregrine and puffin. The caves and beaches around Ramsey are breeding grounds for the largest concentration of grey seals who give birth to over 400 white coated pups during the Autumn.

"Needs more homely touches"
The cottage was cosy and warm. Although the kitchen had dishwasher, washing machine etc which were very welcome it lacked some basic utensils. Bread bin cake/biscuit tin, roasting/casserole dishes etc… More
Thank you for your feedback, we appreciate it. We apologise that these items were missing during your holiday but every now and then things can mysteriously vanish and even though we go through the cottage thoroughly between each stay it's not always easy to identify missing items.
I'm glad to say that the items you listed have all been replaced and the kitchen now has all the finishing touches you would expect from a 4 star holiday cottage.

"Overall clean & comfortable; good base for exploring area"
1. Insufficient directions to the cottage through St. Davids2. Couldn't lock the front door - reported but not actioned3. Bathroom door catch loose4. Kitchen - draining board drained onto floor r… More
Thank you for your comments. As always, we take all feedback on board and aim to offer excellent service and accommodation to our customers on every occasion. However, in this case, there were some issues that didn't meet your expectations, including the directions, and we have since added more detailed directions from St Davids. As for the other comments, we have discussed these thoroughly with the owner and here are his responses:
2. The owner confirmed that the front door lock was actually working during your stay. Other guests (before and after) have managed to operate the lock without any problems.
3. Whilst the bathroom latch might have been loose, it was working and it was also possible to lock the door.
4. Draining board has been tested again and seems to be working fine..? The owner accepts the point regarding the crockery and glasses during your stay and is very apologetic - this was due to breakages which could not be recovered in time for your holiday. The owner, however, would like to point out that the kitchen (which has a Belfast sink and slate work surface) receives a good many compliments from other guests.
5. The decor in the cottage aims to be Scandinavian, simple and uncluttered. Ty Bedwen has been designed as a compact, cosy cottage for two and there is simply no room for tables and lamps.
6. The garden is enclosed by the 'Pembrokeshire bank' that surrounds it.
7. Every effort is made to ensure that all guests at Ty Bedwen are completely satisfied with their accommodation. Just to end on a couple of quotes from the comment book from the last few weeks:
"What a lovely place......great location.....loved the cottage.....can't wait to return".....E & I.
"As promised we came back.....the cottage is perfect....very comfortable and well located. We've had a great time here again and hope to be back soon.".......B &N B
