Craig yr Haul is a wonderful coastal cottage that faces south with spectacular views towards the expanse of Whitesands Beach below. Comfortably furnished throughout with retained features, slate floors and a seaside theme, the light fitted kitchen/diner is well-equipped for preparing family meals, while the lounge with its wood burning stove has French doors to really maximise the views. The romantic double bedroom upstairs opens to a wonderful balcony, the view is simply stunning over the coast and out to sea. There is a further paved terrace, enclosed sunken lawn and children are welcome to play in the fields; or above the cottage is a raised gravel patio where you can dine alfresco, this has to have the best sea view of all. I can think of no better location for a family holiday at any time of year, the views are spectacular.

Enjoy a round of golf on the course with one of the most stunning backdrops, a boat trip from Whitesands or the nearby St Justinians around Ramsey Island is a must of any holiday.

Beaches near Craig yr Haul

Whitesands
Whitesands is one of the best beaches in the world – and that's official. Its not only the top beach destination in Wales, but ranks in the top 20 worldwide, beating the likes of Bora Bora and Natadola in Fiji. With its mile-long expanse of sand, the bay curves round to the rocky point of St Davids Head. Whitesands has been rated one of Britain's premier places in the Good Beach Guide and annually receives a Blue Flag award for water quality. Ideal for families it is also renowned for its surfing and watersports, being a firm favourite with both beginners and professional surfers. For 6 months, in and around the summer season, Lifeguards man the beach. The excellent beach-side shop and cafe provide a range of refreshments. Other facilities include parking, toilets, surfboards and windbreak hire, plus a bus service that travels back and fore to St Davids every half hour in summer months.
The dramatic and towering volcanic outcrop of Carn Llidi rises behind the beach, and is well worth the climb. It offers truly stunning views over the beach and bay, the sunsets are magnificent. Alternatively, follow the Pembrokeshire Coastal Path through the Iron Age fields and on to the Peninsula Settlement at St Davids Head. Dog restrictions apply to the entire beach between 1st May and 30th September.
Whitesands
Porthmelgan is a sandy and secluded beach to the north of Whitesands, accessed only via the Coastal Path. Park at Whitesands and follow the path round to the right of Whitesands Beach, underneath Carn Llidi.
St Davids
A small cove popular with divers and kayakers with lots of climbing routes on the surrounding cliffs. Again, as with all the beaches in this area also a popular place from which to explore parts of the Pembrokeshire Coast Path. There is a car park with an ice-cream van in the summer but very few other amenities. To find Porthclais follow the small road leading SW from The Cross Square in St. Davids.
St Davids
Caerfai is the nearest beach to St Davids and is popular for bathers, although at high tide the beach is completely covered leaving only rocks and boulders. A feature of the beach is the unusual purple sandstone along the cliffs, which was used to build St Davids Cathedral. The beach itself is pleasant and can very occasionally have some small surf. Its enclosed nature makes it unsuitable for kiting or windsurfing though. It is however an excellent place for coasteering with plenty of caves and rocky outcrops to explore. The cliffs around Caerfai also provide some good, popular climbing routes. Limitied parking is available at the top of the path to the beach or within the large caravan park. To find Caerfai beach follow the signs from the National Park Visitor Centre in St. Davids.
Abereiddy
After parking at Abereiddy, take the short walk around the cliff, passing the ruined quarry buildings and slate workers cottages and you will discover the stunning Blue Lagoon! You’ll be blown away by the Mediterranean-like turquoise water, which is a favourite for kayakers and coasteering groups.

Abereiddy
Abereiddy beach is in a rural setting and covered in a unique mix of sand and pebbles that are bluey –grey in colour, due to the mixture of slate and stone. This gives the water a beautifully blue colour. Encased by dramatic cliffs and pretty colour-washed cottages, Abereiddy beach is ideal for surfers, kayakers and walkers. 
Children will love the pastime of local children through the ages- the search for Didymographus fossils which can be found in the slate pebbles along the beach.

Whilst you are here, don’t miss out on Pembrokeshire’s best hidden gem- The Blue Lagoon! Head North of the beach along the headland and discover this magical place for yourself. The former quarry is breath-taking, with it’s sparkling and very deep turquoise water. This is a popular spot for coasteering groups.
In summer months, enjoy an ice-cream and a cold drink from the van in the car park.
Solva is a beautiful rocky inlet which floods, except at low tide, providing a sheltered, safe anchorage for yachts and pleasure craft. Not surprisingly this fine natural harbour has given the village a long seafaring tradition. At low tide there is a small stretch of sand, but the picturesque little harbour provides a pleasant afternoon for watching the small boats coming and going. A busy little village in the summer, with plenty of cafes, restaurants, pubs and gift shops. Solva is just east of St Davids on the A487 Haverfordwest Road. Parking is on the harbour front.
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.
Newgale
Newgale provides the ideal location for watersports. There is always plenty of space on the long, two mile stretch of flat sand and whilst the Atlantic Ocean rollers ensure some exciting surf, it is an ideal beach for the young and not so expert. The beach is patrolled by lifeguards during the school holidays. There is a cafe at both ends of the beach, the Duke of Edinburgh Inn is located on the seafront and there are regular visits by the ice cream van in the summer.
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.

Carreg Sampson is a Neolithic Burial Chamber of the dolmen variety. Stood tall are seven upright stones, three of which support a 4.5 metre long capstone. It is the remains of a large tomb which may once have been covered with a mound of earth, however any hint of a covering mound has since disappeared. A visit to Carreg Sampson is well worth it even if you are not a history buff, as it enjoys panoramic views across the land and sea.
Pembrokeshire Motor Museum has over forty motor cars on display, from veteran cars to classic cars. For each car on display, you can see a complete history. All cars are in excellent condition and are occasionally used by their owners for vintage car rallies etc. so please bear in mind that cars may not always be on display. The Motor Museum is also home to a licensed bar, a magazine and video lounge where you can read and watch all about motoring.
Strumble lighthouse, erected in 1908, is actually situated on the small island of Ynsmeicel, reached by a small footbridge on the North West tip of Pembrokeshire, 5 miles west of Fishguard. The circular stone tower is 55ft high and still contains the original lantern. Please Note: The Lighthouse is automated so unfortunately there isn't any access onto the island.
Learn all about the last British Invasion which occurred in February 1797 with a 30 metre award-winning tapestry at the library in Fishguard Town Hall. Added storyboards and artefacts are used to help guide your learning, and you can even learn all about the making of the tapestry in their audio visual room!
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.
Scolton Manor was built in 1842 as a family home, and was even used as a hospital during World War 2. It is now a Victorian Manor House and Museum, set in a luxurious 60 acres of country park and woodland, with a wide variety of wildlife. The park is open all year, whilst the Manor House is closed during the winter months. The Manor House will be opening again in March 2015, and times will be confirmed nearer the time. Please Note: Admission to the Park is free, whilst charges to the Manor House apply. Dogs must be kept on leads at all times, and are allowed in the Park only.

 

Customer Reviews of Craig yr Haul

Domone Family

Have been coming to this area for the past 50 years and this was by far the best location. Lovely comfortable cottage with spectacular views. By the way, kitchen scissors would be useful.


Sarah Merrick

Stunning views from a beautiful cottage. We've had a lovely time returning to a place that is dear to our hearts.


The Beddisons

We have lost track of how many years we have been coming to Whitesands Bay but for nearly 20 years we have never tired of the three houses here! Thanks for keeping them a lovely place to come.. I Think we had the best weather in the British Isles this week and enjoyed seal watching, sea swimming, rock pooling as well as lots of digging on the beach. We are still yet to find any treasure - Maybe next year. Thanks again


Driscoll Family & Friends

Year 8 of our Summer Stays here. Fantastic weather until Tuesday night before the rain came but it doesn't matter when you are in a wet suit and in the sea. Best surf later in the week see it all again next year.


The Woodhouse Family

Thank you for an extremely happy week of beach, coast path and indoor games - ages 8 -7. Lots of seals & Porpoises on a round Ramsey Trip. Excellent exhibition on evolution at the Tourist Centre! The kitchen is very smart. Favourite week of the year!


Norton Family

Our 18th year of coming to Whitesands! Always a wonderful break whatever the weather. The house is always improving each year, many thanks for the continued investment and contribution to our enjoyment. Looking forward to our next visit.


Struthers Family & Friends

After many years of camping in the area we have thoroughly enjoyed the luxury of this cottage. It has been a brilliant week - lucky with the weather too - & lots of walks & photography! Definitely be back, we loved the cottage and its view and facilities. The Balcony is ace!


The Rogers & Powell Family

A great time was had by all at Craig Yr Haul. The children loved going to the beach especially here at Whitesands in the afternoon when the ride went out. Also enjoyed going to Broad Haven & Little Haven. Solva is a must when staying here, crabing in the morning is great for the kids, and walking through the harbour in the afternoon when the ride is out is amazing. Mackerel fishing is a great way to spend the afternoon off St Davids, lovely eating, fresh fish in the evening that we had caught. The Blue Lagoon at Bluestone (Haverfordwest) is great on a wet day the kids enjoyed this a lot. Hope to come back someday to explore more of this amazing coastline.


The Greig family

Our first stay in Craig Yr Haul after two visits to Ty Gwyn, Just as enjoyable thank you, helped by lovely weather. We weren't able to have our usual Sloop Meal at Porthan because it was too busy, but the Thursday night Quiz at the farmers arms St David's was a good substitute. also the takeaway menu from the beach café here was very good we hope to be back.


The Barry Family

We have had a fantastic week here and the weather has been wall to wall sunshine all week hope to come next year. We thoroughly recommend the Sloop inn in Port gain for dinner we ate outside several times this week and the boys were kept very happy playing football on the football patch next to the patio, where we could keep an eye on the them from our table. White sands to St Justine's along the Coastal path a nice and easy walk 0.3miles went to St David's airfield for our 3 year old to practise his cycling - perfect for beginner's St David's Deli inside St David's food and wine make great take away sandwhiches.


The Dickinson family

Lovely to be back to St David's and White sands,a wonderful week of sunshine and only one wet day. The house is very equipped, the only thing I missed was a clock hoping to return again.


Lewis Family

The weather was very kind to us with just one day of cloud cover. We went on a puffin trip around Skomer from Martins Haven and bought fresh crab from Solva. A relaxed and enjoyable few days and the good news is that we will be back again if John can arrange the same weather, lovely House!!beautiful views.


The Guire Family

A glorious week, all sunny days with flat calm seas and mild breezes, wonderful. the house suited us well and we spent lovely days on the beach in the rock pools, and building sand castles. ice cream from the car park shop on whitesands, much appreciated. St David's lovely as well, Sloop inn continues to be a delight and riding at Nolton a lovely event, try coasteering from St David's a great day out.

Sixth year staying here at whitesands. I have never surfed a six foot wave in a kayak when there is no wind, and lots of sea! The kids loved it! and wife doesn't want to go home.
