Granston House

This light and welcoming traditional cottage is comfortably furnished and equipped; a real home from home, full of artwork, antique country furniture, books and music.  With two open fires to enjoy on chillier evenings, and an enclosed rear lawned garden in which to enjoy al fresco meals in summer, it is an all year round delight.  Situated opposite the medieval church, sheltered in wooded seclusion, this is one of a pair of cottages on the lane through this delightful hamlet, little more than a mile from the spectacular coastal path and the sea.

This stretch of coastline is one of the finest and least spoilt in Europe, with magnificent cliffs and views. Nearby beaches include Abermawr, excellent for surfing, and the more sheltered cove of Aberbach. Wildlife abounds: wild ponies, seabirds and seals are readily spotted, and the spring flowers are amazing.

St Davids with its enchanting medieval cathedral, is nearby, as is Fishguard, with its harbour and Farmers Market. Both offer excellent shops, galleries, pubs and restaurants. 

The Strumble Shuttle bus runs between the two, and can be flagged down outside the cottage. It stops at the villages and beaches along the way. Close by are Tregwynt Woollen Mill, Strumble Head lighthouse, and the pub at Mathry, being one of many which serves good food.

Beaches near Granston House

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.

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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.

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.
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.
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.

Historic Places near Granston House

Abercastle
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.
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!
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.
Solva Woollen Mill is the oldest working woollen mill in Pembrokeshire and is now the only mill in Wales specialising in flat woven carpets, rugs and runners. Its a family business but visitors are welcome to the mill to wander through the weaving sheds, chat to the weavers as they are warping, splitting yarn or weaving. There is a mill shop housed carding engines and spinning mules and a tearoom which is located in the old dye shed, selling tea, coffee and homemade cakes.
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.
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.
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.
Located next to the Cathedral, this Bishop's Palace was originally built and established as a monastery in the 6th Century by Saint David. Most of the structure for this building remains however the Palace is now without a roof. Please note: Dogs must be kept on leads at all times.
The birthplace of Saint David, this Chapel was built in 1934 on the site of the original house where Non had lived. The Chapel and its accompanying Holy Well were built in dedication to Saint Non, and have since become popular destinations for pilgrimages. Legend has it that springs appeared at each of the significant milestones of Saint David's life, and many believe this Holy Well appeared during his birth and holds many special healing powers.
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.

We’ve had a lovely relaxing fortnight at Granston House. Swimming at Aber Mawr was a real highlight, especially when a seal popped up to say hello!

25 June 2016 – Thank you for a lovely stay – we had a great time and a well earned rest. The puffins on Skomer were a real highlight!


28 May 2016 – Many thanks again for a marvelous whole week in your nice house. We had such a good time around here – walking and drawing. For plant lovers: Dyffryn Fernant Garden is small but really worth seeing… 2 miles east of Fishguard. A wonderful time, as always. Thank you so very much. (Quebec)


1 December 2015 – Another lovely, restful & restorative break in Granston. Lots of windy walking from Abereiddy to Porthgain and around Dinas Head. Lots of lovely afternoons spent in our favourite pubs reading and playing board games.


25 September 2015 – Absolutely fascinating selection of pictures, prints, etc, everywhere! Also a wide selection of classical CDs appreciated .. interesting book titles and “antique” furniture – very good!

18 July 2015 - Lovely cottage, ideally situated for early morning dog walks on Abermawr where we “think” we found either a shipwreck or an old telegraph pole or petrified forest! All very comfy and cosy, enjoyed fire in evenings.


4 July 2015 - A wonderful holiday. It is worth just pottering along the narrow road, alongside the coast and discovering small beautiful harbours and pubs.


Natasha + Family 2014

Amazing two weeks of weather made this a memorable holiday. House was equipped with everything we needed. Thanks Natasha + Family


The Astley Family

Stunning weather this week, so lucky, and added to a wonderfully relaxing week. So enjoyed the cottage and surround. The peace and tranquillity, birdsong and badger encounters, beautiful walks and woodland wonders; and fantastic fish and chips at Letterston – to be recommended! Really enjoyed the artworks around the house and also reading this journal, thanks for all the info.


The Ibbotson Family

Lovely cottage! The beds were so comfortable and warm at night. There was a lovely robin that we saw every day out in the garden. There were plenty of kitchen appliances. It was lovely and quiet away from all the busyness of the town. A lovely area for everyone


The Rudman/Allen Party

Mille fois merci for the lovely time we had during our 5 days stay here. I very much appreciated the beautiful coastal paths, so different from where we live. We really made the most of it and we are very grateful to you”. It was wonderful to be here ….. An unforgettable time in a place of rare beauty. Thank you so very much.


The Begg Family

What a wonderful, tranquil, welcoming cottage. We loved the views. Thank you for the hot water bottle and the hairdryer too. The new cooker works well. We’ve had a great family reunion week with 11 of us spread over 3 houses. Fun meal at The Shed, Porthgain. Highlights seeing the seals, the dolphins and all the wild flowers. Thank you.


Mr & Mrs Hanslip

A week’s not long enough! We felt at home straight away in this cosy, welcoming cottage. Highlights of the week include the walk around Strumble Head and the amazing woodland gardens at Picton Castle, and, of course, the profusion of wild flowers everywhere. Thank you for a lovely peaceful holiday.


The Wilerton Family

We have had a lovely week, the cottage is wonderful. Baby Joel enjoyed his first ever holiday and Zeus the dog has had a wonderful time. Thank you.


The Mewar Family

A brilliant week, comfortable cottage really enjoyed the pictures/prints! Mixed weather but did the beach almost every day. Favourites were Whitesands and Treath Llfyn (approached from either Abereiddy or Porthgain). Oh, and Cwm Yr Eglwys – pretty much every one we went to. You definitely need to consider wind direction when choosing your beach. Recommend sea kayaking at Fishguard. Excellent fish and chips from The Shed at Porthgain – Something Cooking was good too but a definite second. Thanks for a lovely holiday!


The Dunmall Family

Very good holiday, very good weather, swims, walks, could not be better. Sparky the 11 year old Jack Russell enjoyed himself as per usual. Found Mesolithic flint blade near the coast path near youth hostel and a flint Neolithic blade on a field in Mathry!


Mr & Mrs Goodchilds

Mainly did cliff walks – loved the scenery, saw plenty of seals. Enjoyed the local artists, especially Workshop Wales and Judy Linnell. Even bought one of Judy’s watercolours: full of life and passion. And this is the best cottage we’ve stayed in. Thank you.


The Thomas Family

What a wonderful time we have had here. The cottage is so friendly and welcoming, we instantly felt at home. We’ve done a lot of coastal walking, had a brilliant time pony trekking (Llanwnda Stables) and the weather was very kind to us! I wouldn’t hesitate in coming back to this cottage, the only down side was we didn’t book for a longer stay!!
