This delightful stone barn conversion in Pembrokeshire is tucked away in the hamlet of Rhoslannog near St Davids and close to Aberbach and Abermawr beaches. It makes a perfect base for relaxing holiday and is just a few minutes drive from the sandy bottomed harbour of Abercastle.

There is a footpath leading from the cottage to the beach at Abercastle where there is access to the 186 miles of Coastal Path where one can enjoy exhilarating walks along the dramatic coastline that the St. David's peninsula offers.

Porthgain Harbour with its wonderful maritime history and picturesque port, Whitesands beach, considered by many to be one of Pembrokeshire's finest beaches, and Abereiddi with the famous Blue Lagoon are all close by.

The single storey cottage has been sympathetically converted from an old grain store and the owner has used flair and imagination to retain its character, with exposed beams and colour washed walls throughout.

The 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.


Strumble head is a spectacular place to visit at any time, when the strong gales pound the cliffs the scenery can be as dramatic as the waves crash on the rocks below. When the sun shines it provides one of the best views on the Pembrokeshire coast. There is an Iron Age hill fort called Garn Fawr and the climb to the summit is the highest point on the head, with spectacular views and the remains of the fort clearly viewed. Seals and porpoise can be seen in the sea beneath the Lighthouse. St Davids the smallest city in Britain is a busy place with the attractions of the Cathedral and a selection of individual shops and eateries. Trips to the offshore islands and coasteering activities can also be arranged from here.
