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!
Bwthyn Ysgubor is located just outside Mathry, 6 miles from Fishguard and 10 miles from St Davids. Mathry is a lovely little village and was the birthplace of Jemima Fawr, a Welsh heroine who led the women of Pembrokeshire into battle in what is known as the last invasion of Britain in 1797.
St Davids 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 Alum 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. 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.
Fishguard, Goodwick and Lower Town form a close and friendly community in North Pembrokeshire. The area is famous as the location of 'The Last Invasion of Britain' when in 1797 French troops landed nearby. The invasion is commemorated by an imposing and internationally famous tapestry which is on display at the Last Invasion Gallery in the Town Hall. Fishguard stands on an imposing headland commanding superb views of the bay. It is the main shopping centre of North Pembrokeshire with two small supermarkets and many family-run shops and businesses. There is a good choice of pubs, restaurants and cafes, with several pubs providing entertainment at weekends. The town provides many superb walks including the Marine Walk which has outstanding coastal views.
In the area there are several fascinating villages that are certainly worth a visit. One of which is the beautiful fishing village of Porthgain, now home to the Shed bistro and the Sloop Inn where musician Cerys Matthews can sometimes be found playing the piano and singing in her favourite pub!. Solva is known as the jewel of the Pembrokeshire Coast and is an ideal location for walking, sailing, fishing or simply relaxing amongst the shops, galleries and restaurants set in the beautiful scenery.
Travelling north just 5 miles from Mathry is the ferry boat over to Southern Ireland. Speed across on the Stenna Express in just 90 minutes or take a more leisurely 3 ½ hour journey by super ferry and enjoy time in the bars, restaurants, and shops.

"A great little place for a relaxing short break"
Our time at Bwthyn Ysgubor was far too short! The cottage was very cosy and comfortable and an ideal base for exploring North Pembrokeshire. Margaret had left fresh eggs, milk, bread etc in the cottag… More
