Where to stay during National Fishing Month ?

July 21st 17 marked the start of the Annual Fishing Month of the year with the underlying idea to encourage all family members to pick up a rod and have a go at fishing! With national fishing month concluding on the 3rd of September this year,  why not take a look at our catch of the day fishing properties and book yourself an unforgettable fishing trip! Here at Coastal Cottages we have a niche set of properties around Pembrokeshire that are perfect for fishing lovers – why? They are set in spectacular locations including designated SSSI areas – a fisherman’s paradise.



To begin, we have the Spectacular Llandyfriog (13309). This property will take your breath away, and not only because of its wonderful position being set right on the banks of the river Teifi (a designated SSSI area), the property itself is a contemporary, uniquely designed, detached house finished to a very high standard. Sleeping 12 in 5 bedrooms, Llandyfriog is the perfect destination for a family fun fishing trip!


When you step into the open-plan living space the modern fitted kitchen, high ceiling’s and limestone chimney breast will catch your eye, while the wood burning stove ensures a cosier feel on chillier evenings. On warmer evenings the decked balcony running the length of the house makes the perfect spot to dine alfresco while listening to the river below you.
