"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. Doves Cottage is a most unusual and cosy retreat in a magical setting. Seals, peregrines and a wide variety of seabirds are often seen from the south facing terraces and additional lawn gives lots of space.
The elderly or infirm may find the short, steep flight of steps difficult.
Not suitable for under 5 year olds. No baby equipment is provided, but you are welcome to bring your own.

Loved another week of peace and quiet in Doves Cottage, and enjoying an early Christmas too! Thank you, see you next time.
We've enjoyed the most wonderful 4 days at Doves Cottage. We've enjoyed sunshine and snow and have been lucky enough to sit outside and enjoy the views! What a way to spend your birthday! Peaceful, cosy and a great time had by all (including the pooch!) Thank you for your warm welcome. We hope to return again soon!
The second but hopefully not the last visit to this special cottage and location. Our trip was delayed by two days due to travel problems caused by 'The Beast from the East' storm which hit Britain. Luckily, the weather here since Monday has been amazing with sunshine and blue skies most of the time. Fabulous scenery and walks. What a tonic as winter nears an end
Our third visit to Doves Cottage and it will not be our last! Thank you, we just love coming here. One of our favourite places in the world!
Many thanks to the 'Miles' family for the use of Doves Cottage on our 13th visit here. We loved the whole holiday as much as ever visiting and re-visiting our favourite places. Lots and lots of walking. See you again!! Been magical as ever
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.
