Further details indoors

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 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.

Access is along a rough stone track and over a shallow ford, all drivable in an ordinary car. The cottage is 400m from the nearest public lane.

There is private parking close to the cottage.

There is a wild-flower meadow beside the cottage that has a mown path in Summer.

Further details

Central heating, electricity and an initial supply of logs are included in the price.

Bed linen and towels provided.

We can accommodate a child under 12 months - travel cot and highchair available.

We welcome one well-behaved and sociable dog. We have two dogs of our own that run free and may visit at some time during your stay,

The 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.

"A gorgeous cottage with everything provided in a beautiful area"

We stayed in the old pottery for a week with a dog and a baby. Everything had been thought of. There was a cot and high chair for the baby, a bowl and towel for the dog, plenty of storage to put things away, and little things had been thought of, like providing an umbrella and torch. The washing machine and drying wrack were very useful. There were loads of walks, beaches, and other attractions such as cheese factories, museums etc in the area and leaflets were left in the cottage to inform us. The garden was encoded so it was safe to let the dig out on her own. The kitchen was very spacious and the bed wonderfully comfy. We left feeling very relaxed and refreshed.

"Very nice but be aware of a few things"

This cottage has so much to offer its remote location, facilities, quirkiness are all great, it is a brilliant place to stay. However there is a couple of things you need to be aware of. The drive up is a track not a lane it is passable in a car but don't be in a hurry if you value your suspension. There is a ford to go through which means if it has rained heavy you will need to leave your car in a gateway to the field before the ford. Neither of these would put me off staying here. We did have a problem with slugs however they get into the cottage somewhere and get onto the work tops in the kitchen, we had 6 one night with 2 in the toaster. I have informed Babs so they can correct this problem and I have no doubt they will address it. The cottage is in the wilderness so i guess you have to expect some local wildlife! Don't let this put you off though it is a lovely cottage...

It's been a really bad year for slugs, they have eaten our whole kitchen garden! We have installed a copper door step at The Old Pottery and that has worked at keeping them out. No more slugs in the kitchen have been reported.
