Carni Lodge

Carni Lodge is a cosy retreat for a couple to enjoy a romantic break. It has been well-appointed with local slate and quality furnishings. Step into the delightful, open-plan living space with its wooden floor, vaulted ceiling, beams and comfortable sofa to relax on. The galley style fitted kitchen is well-equipped and stairs lead to the galleried bedroom above where the twin beds can be linked to give a super king nestling in the eaves. A French door opens to your own paved patio which is not overlooked and is a real sun trap where you can sit and relax with a glass of wine on a summer’s evening and enjoy the enclosed, shared garden with ornamental pond adjoining the owners own home. Tucked down a private lane on the edge of Carni Woods, it is a perfect retreat often enhanced by visiting wildlife.

Take the footpath into the woods, head for the Pembrokeshire Coastal Path and explore this rugged section of coastline with its dramatic cliffs and sheltered coves which are regular haunt of seals; birdwatchers and nature lovers will delight in the wide variety of birds and pretty wildflowers and natural scenery. A short drive away is Strumble Head with its seals and marvellous sunsets, a must of any stay. There are a number of beaches, but the prettiest is Pwllcrochan and is seldom busy as it can only be reached on foot. The village pubs, restaurants and shops in Goodwick are within walking distance, while Fishguard is only a short drive away or the tiny city of St Davids with its range of facilities is also convenient. Carni Lodge is perfect to escape to, yet perfectly positioned to explore all the beauty this area has to offer, whatever the time of year.

Beaches near Carni Lodge

Goodwick
Although the large sheltered harbour of Goodwick looks like an ideal flat water windsurfing location, the high cliffs surrounding it makes it a gusty venue in all but North Easterly winds and not really suited to any kind of 'forces-of-nature' sport. There's a promenade above the top of the beach and a long breakwater that you can walk along. Dolphins and basking sharks are occasionally seen off the beach as they swim round the harbour.
Aberbach Bay
This small and quiet beach is a neighbour to the larger Abermawr beach. Located only a 5 minute walk away from the roadside or no more than a 10 minute ramble along the cliff tops, around the top of Abermawr beach, Aberbach bay’s low tide reveals a beautiful canvas of golden sand, perfect for a picnic and building sandcastles with the children.
The nearest place to get refreshments would be in nearby Mathry, which has a great village pub that serves food.
Abermawr
A little known, but impressively large, bay with a pebble bank which was naturally created by a huge storm in 1859. At low tide the beach is smothered in golden sand and offers good conditions for kiting. Surfing here can also be great when the tide is high, although beware of the strong currents.
At Low tide Abermawr’s 8000 year old forest remains can be seen. An additional treasure is the marshland behind the beach- here you can spot a vast array of wildlife.
Parking is along the roadside (limited space), there is a short path from here to the beach.
The nearest place to get refreshments would be in nearby Mathry, which has a great village pub that serves food.

Pwllgwaelod
A small sandy beach with cliffs on either side means that the west facing Pwllgwaelod is unsuitable for most 'forces-of-nature' sports, however it is very handy for launching small boats and kayaks/canoes. There are low rocks on both sides to clamber over and numerous rockpools. The beach does however offer good views across Fishguard Bay to Fishguard Harbour and a short walk of a kilometre or so takes you across the southern end of Dinas Island to the beach at Cwm-yr-Eglwys.
Cwm Yr Eglwys
Cwm-yr-Eglwys is a petite, eye-catching cove popular with families, kayakers and sea swimmers. Overlooking the picturesque shingle and pebble beach are the remains of the 12th Century church of St Brynach's, which was destroyed during a fierce storm in 1859. To find Cwm-yr-Eglwys follow the narrow, twisting road off the A487 just to the east of Dinas Cross.
Aberfforest
Aberfforest Beach is a small bay made up of a mixture of sand and shingle, situated between two majestic cliffs and just under two miles from the local villages of Newport and Dinas. 
Accessible via a long footpath, which leads along a wide farm track (follow Aberfforest signs) almost all the way to the beach, or alternatively along the Pembrokeshire Coast Path from Cwm Yr Eglwys, this beach is quiet and peaceful - perfect for a relaxing day by the seaside, a picnic or taking a few beautiful photographs.  
Aberfforest is a great beach for swimming and kayaking, and is a popular haunt for seals. 
A special little gem that you mustn’t miss out on, is the secret waterfall which is nestled in the wooded valley just behind the beach. It is definitely worth a visit.
Abercastle
Abercastle is a picturesque cove which was once a busy slate port. It’s small ‘beach’ is made up of sand, shingle and seaweed and is popular with walkers and fishermen. It is an inlet still used as a harbour base for a string of local fishermen. 
Swimmers, divers, kayakers and boating enthusiasts are drawn to this area. There is a slipway for boats and kayaks. The beach also faces North West so is naturally sheltered from winds. 
The nearest place to get refreshments would be in nearby Trefin. Here, there is a pub and a café that both serve good food.
Newport
This large, picturesque horseshoe shaped bay is generally well protected from the winds and waves that pound much of the Pembrokeshire coastline. The historic town of Newport stands near the mouth of the River Nevern where there are 2 beaches - one on each side of the estuary. The Parrog is on the Southern side, and although this is the more sheltered beach, unpredictable currents make bathing dangerous. However, the area is rich in prehistoric sites, including Pentre Ifan burial chamber. To find the beach follow the signs from Newport and the A487. It is dog friendly all year round. 
Newport
A superb long stretch of beach with lots of room to play games and sail boats. The beach is backed by a popular golf course with club house. At low tide you can walk across the estuary to Newport Parrog, and the walk around the river bank through a bird sanctuary to the road bridge crossing is always enjoyable. Visitors should be careful of dangerous currents around the river. Nature has given Newport a spectacular setting of sea, castle and the towering Carn Ingli – at 1100-feet this makes for a wonderful view from the beach. Access to the beach is easy – no steps or cliffs.
Porthgain
An impressive sandy beach surrounded by equally impressive cliffs and headlands. When rough, there can be some pretty nasty rips at this beach making it unsuitable for swimming. Part of the beach can get cut off at high tide too, so watch out. To find it drive to either Porthgain and take the Coastal Path to the beach, or alternatively you can park at Abereiddy and take the 1 km walk along the Coast Path to Traethllyfn. Approx. 124 steep metal steps lead down to beach.

Situated in North Pembrokeshire, Castell Henllys is an extraordinary day out for anyone interested in history. With a reconstructed Iron Age Hill fort, Castell Henllys is set in 26 acres of woodland on excavated remains from over 2000 years ago. Particularly interesting is the three large replica roundhouses, the granary and forge.
Originally constructed in the 12th Century as a fortress made from timber, and has seen visits from a number of famous names including Oliver Cromwell and King Richard II. The castle was later reconstructed in stone, and was often used to house prisoners before being replaced by a new prison building inside the castle grounds in the 19th Century. This building is now home to the Pembrokeshire Records Office. Not much remains of the stone castle other than the stone wall which grandly looks upon the small town below it. A must-visit is the Town Museum, located in the Old Prison Governor's House. With artefacts, prints, paintings and models, this museum tells the history of the castle and the surrounding town.
A popular destination for pilgrimages, this Cathedral is a huge attraction for those interested in Welsh history and/or religion. St. David's Cathedral as we know it today replaced a monastery which was originally founded on the site by Saint David around 589 AD. Not only is it named after our Patron Saint of Wales, but it also contains a shrine to him. The Cathedral still operates a traditional communion service and also holds various special events such as the annual Cathedral Festival. Please note: Admission is free, but donations are encouraged.

What a lovely little lodge to stay in as a base for exploring around this wonderful coastline, we've seen both dolphins and seals during out stay here and the weather has been mainly sunny. We've had a lovely time and coming back to this comfortable little lodge has been well worth the money.

Good to be back weather no good but got out and about, seen some seals up at Strumble head and went to an island where we saw some Dolphins and seals. Had a good stay at Carni Lodge is the best place to stay, see you next year.


Sue and Bob

I arrived after a long journey to discover a CLEAN, modern well equipped cottage. I was greeted by the friendly owners John and Corrie who showed me around and gave me a key to the secure outside lock up area. This I knew woudl please Bob who would be coming later by bicycle. John and Corrie have researched the area well so the cottage was full of leaflets, maps etc as well as board games, dvd,s and videos. Cycling was fantastic, hills views and very little traffic. We walked the coastal path but we were often delayed by watching seals playing or basking on the rocks. The weather at times was not great but by having a washing machine and tumble ll too soon the week has come to an end and its time to go home, Cottage and holiday rating A*. Weather didnt hold.


Duncan

great week! Walked a lot so the shower was very much appreciated. Tried bus ride and walk combination and it worked very well giving us a decent stretch on the coastal path


Mr Dickens

Completely excellent cottage in a brilliant location. Thank you for a very warm welcome and great thought and care in providing utilities in the cottage. We've had a fantastic time, not least because we've had the reassurance of a watm, quiet & secure retreat at the end of the days spent out and about.
