The Witches Cauldron, or Pwll-Y-Wrach to the Welsh, is a geological feature near to Ceibwr Bay which can be accessed only by either sea kayak or a good half an hour walk along the Coastal Path from Ceibwr Bay. A collapsed cave which gives stunning views to those walking and kayaking in the area, and lots of intricate tunnels seen only by kayakers.

Beaches near Seahorse Cottage

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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Ceibwr Bay
Ceibwr is an attractive little bay, totally undeveloped and the haunt of shy seabirds and Grey Atlantic seals, with the nearby village of Moylegrove within walking distance. The cliff walking is high, craggy and awesomely beautiful whatever the weather or season. The cliffs show evidence of impressive forces at work circa 400 million years ago when Ceibwr was created - admire the elegant folds and scrolls in the rock face. The ruins of a fine Celtic fortress can be found on the northern cliff edge. The more romantic can envisage the smugglers taking advantage of such a remote spot along with the ideal locality of the cave on the beach. This area is for those seeking a quiet holiday near the amenities of Cardigan and Newport but away from the more popular sandy beaches and busy centres. There is a car park with toilets in Moylegrove and roadside parking closer to the cove with space for approx 20-25 vehicles.
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.

St Dogmaels
Near the mouth of the River Teifi, on the southern side opposite Cardigan, stands St Dogmaels. It is essentially a seafaring village, as examination of headstones in the churchyard will testify. The remains of an Abbey founded by Robert Fitz-Martin in the 12th century are worth a visit. Poppit Sands a little further down the estuary has a beautiful and extensive beach which denotes the start (or the end!) of the 186-mile Pembrokeshire Coast Path.

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.

It is the remains of a large Iron Age Hill-fort covering almost 4 hectacres, with three defended enclosures, and three large cairns each three metres in height. Historians state that it is likely to have been a heavily populated fortified village which was built sometime between 650BC and 100AD.
St. Dogmael's Abbey was founded on the banks of the River Teifi in 1115 for Tironian Monks, before being given the status of Abbey in 1120. Fortunately there are extensive remains to visit today, original 15th Century floor tiles can still be seen along the nave of which the west and north walls stand nearly to their original height. The Coach House is set in the surroundings of the Abbey ruins, and is now home to a museum and visitor centre where they have a collection of carved stones that were once part of the abbey on display.

I was last here in 2010 with family and remembered what a beautiful place it is, perfect for a much needed quite break this weekend. Just me and my Labrador cookie this time, we had a lovely weekend and the cottage & surrounding area, just as lovely as remembered.


The Mackenzie Family

"WOW" We've had a fantastic time. Your cottage is beautiful, clean, tidy and the little extras like wood, soap and a bottle of wine made the start of our holiday perfect thank you. The garden was perfect for our little dog Bertie, as were the breathtaking walks. It was a great place to spend quality family time, even our teenage sons agree! (and that's with no mobile signal or internet!) Thank you


Mrs Burgoyne

I was last here at seahorse cottage in November 2006, when I was more sprightly! I am now eighty five and with the aid of my stick I walk each day to the beach with my lovely daughter and son in-law Elisabeth and Stephen, and I must not forget their dog Ruby a welsh springer spaniel, I am still overjoyed at the wonderful cliffs and colours orange and blue. We walked a little way to the waterfall but had to take care because of ground being slippery. Tuesday was sunny so the crows all around us were exceptional, Thank you for providing us with such a lovely cottage.


Evans & Bradbury family

Another lovely Stay, Interesting to see the beach change daily. bliss, peace, Splendour and rest. Magical Seahorse!


Smith family

We really enjoyed our stay- weather better than expected- Woodburner was well used! Very little rain- but plenty over recent weeks, so the waterfall was spectacular! Strong winds at times- so the sea views across the bay were very impressive- we still managed to see a couple of seals, for whom the huge waves were no hindrance, but they certainly kept us out of the water!


Corbett family

Didn’t realise when we booked what a WOW factor was here. We’ve had a wonderful week, so lucky with the weather and the scenery was outstanding. Our personal beach was perfect. I’m sure that we shall be planning a return trip.


Sarah Nowell

We really enjoyed our stay here as usual and found that there were lots of things to do even though we have been here many times before. We were very lucky and had amazing weather for both weeks of our stay. We only had two days when it rained and on one of those days we went to Tenby. A great holiday, enjoyed it so much that we are coming again next year!


Taylor family

Excellent cottage in wonderful surroundings, one of the most relaxing places we have stayed. We were very lucky with the weather. Many thanks.


Tomlinson family

We have had a lovely holiday, especially at Whitesands Bay where the ice cream was excellent. The woods and waterfalls were terrific. I had lots of fun horse riding. I rode a pretty pony called Bubbles! We got drenched! Grandma and Grandad have also had a good (exhausting) time. Willie, like us, is much greyer than on our last visit!


Norton family

First time in Seahorse- been in most of the others! Another great week in Pembrokeshire with lots of sun and walks on the coastal path. Friends came and went but we still ended up with more wine! We had frosts some nights but we were warm enough due to the excellent Woodburner.


Barrett Family

Amazing weather has helped to make this another great stay at Seahorse. Willie is as lovely as ever. The wild garlic, sublime. Many thanks.


Poole family

The surroundings cannot be bettered- ideal for our grandchildren and dogs- also so peaceful and no light pollution at night- the night sky was amazing. Would certainly return.


The Coiley Family

A cottage by the sea, oh so wild, Where the weather has been unseasonably mild An idyll, a getaway from where we can rest and play. Seahorse Cottage, what a restful place to stay.


The Gibson Family

Had a fantastic time over New Year in the cottage. Thanks for the wine. Location lovely, even in winter. Nice walks even if a bit cold! Thank you for a lovely clean cottage to stay in over a good time of year such as New Year.


Murtagh Family

Had a lovely Christmas at Aberfforest- the weather has been kind, the cottage is lovely, the little extras- Xmas tree, decorations, flowers with Xmas trimmings have all added to make it special. Had some lovely walks along the coastal path to the beach. What a great place! Mick really enjoyed the woodburning stove. The wine and nuts went down a treat. Thank you for the tin foil on the meat trays-really helped with the turkey!


The Burgoyne Family

We didn’t see the seals, but we know they don’t like the dogs barking! Ruby was excited every day, and so was I, the walks, views, all far above my expectations. I must mention how cosy we were in Seahorse especially as you provided all the little things that made preparation of meals so easy, just like home!


The Masons

Thank you so much for a lovely peaceful therapeutic week. We have had good weather for the most part, enjoyed many lovely walks along the coast path and inland. The dogs had a whale of a time, and Willie was a constant companion! We have found Seahorse to be a great retreat but also a quality place to stay- SO MANY AREN’T! You have thought of everything! THANKS AGAIN FOR A LOVELY WEEK!


The Fureys

Great location, nice cottage, had a thoroughly relaxing weeks, weather was good, and we’re all tanned. Highlights included seeing seals and a sun fish, following dolphins around in our boat, fishing (successfully!) and surfing on the beach. The boys loved the forest, the collies have been fully exercised and all look forward to returning next year. Regards to Willie. His meet and greet each day has been welcomed.
