"May we rent the cottage at the edge of the sea?" is a question we are asked hundreds of times every year. The answer is, "Yes"! Doves Cottage is the most sought after holiday property enjoying a unique position and interesting history.
Once a tap house giving a warm welcome to sailors, it has steps from the door into the sea. Every window has a sea view and access to the cottage is via the Pembrokeshire Coastal Path.

I agree with earlier comments that the rayburn is a joy to use. I have absolutely loved the time I have spent here at Doves Cottage. It's such a lovely place and I wish I could stay longer. I have had a wonderful and relaxing stay here and I knew from the minute I arrived here that I would return to this special place. I feel very privileged to have had the chance to stay in this incredible location and I can't wait to come back.
We have returned again to this specail place. Had a lovely week - enjoying watching gulls bathing when the tide was out, and being cosy when the wind and the waves were raging.
Barney our border terrier loved having his very own "private" beach to run around on. This was our second visit and we have not been disappointed.
A wonderful and relaxing week. Many thanks
We have had a wonderful time. Thank you. So beautiful and relaxing. Top highlight, two seals trying to get food out of the fishermans traps!!
What a beautiful place and a magical week. Loved every minute of it and can't wait to come back.
What can be said that's not already been said? Thanks for an unforgettable holiday.
The word "stunning" is much over used these days - but it does apply here. Watch out for the seals here and the basking sharks at Strumble Head.
