Holiday Cottage in Abercastle

Availability & Book

About Swn y Mor

Swn y Mor (Sound of the Sea) is a beautifully restored south facing cottage within sight of the sea and just a couple of hundred yards from the beach in the quaint fishing village of Abercastle. There are superb views of the bay from the terrace at the front of the cottage, where you can just sit and relax with a cup of coffee or glass of wine, soak up the view and watch the world go by. Step into the open plan living space with its characterful exposed stone walls and beams with dining area and fitted kitchen. The cosy sitting area has a wood burning stove set in a traditional Inglenook perfect for those chillier evenings. Stairs lead up from here to the 2 bedrooms nestling in the eaves.

The hamlet of Abercastle is on one of the most scenic parts of the Pembrokeshire Coastal Path and the bay and valley are conservation areas within the National Park. Still used by local fishermen, this pretty inlet is popular with sailors and water lovers alike. Walking the Pembrokeshire Coastal Path which runs past your door is the best way to really appreciate this spectacular rugged coastline, take advantage of the bus service for the return journey of your walk. Visit the neighbouring coves of Abermawr and Aberfelin, below the village of Trefin with its village pub and craft shop and café. The neighbouring village of Mathry also has a popular village pub, and the tea rooms are well worth a visit. A little further on lies the beaches of Porthgain and Abereiddy and the Blue Lagoon. While Fishguard with its range of facilities is only a short drive away or to the south is the tiny city of St Davids with its majestic Cathedral and Bishops Palace and choice of shops, restaurants and pubs to try.

Swn y Mor is an ideal coastal holiday retreat whatever the season.

'From the moment we arrived and tucked into the delicious welsh cakes, we have felt welcome and relaxed. We have had lots of adventures and stunning walks and after some soggy walks it was a real treat to sit by the fire in the evening. Thank you' October 2019

'We have enjoyed wonderful weather and the cottage has been a lovely get away. The highlight has been the amount of seals we've seen on this visit. We've walked both areas of the coastal path and enjoyed amazing views of the wildlife. We will return again I'm sure, thanks' October 2019

Mr & Mrs Fisher

Dear Team, We have just returned from 5 days at Swn y mor cottage at Abercastle. It was delightful. The cottage was perfect and suited our needs. We walked miles each day and enjoyed super on the bench outside the cottage in the sunshine each evening. We were lucky the weather was fabulous and the scenery stunning. Thank you

The McKernan Family

Our 4th visit to Abercastle, first time in Swn y Mor! Abercastle has to be the hidden gem in Pembrokeshire, we love the peace of the cove, the coastal path. No need to drive anywhere - just use the Strumble Shuttle. The cove is perfect for kayaking - great to kayak around the seals. Lovely to watch the swallows at dusk. We will we back!

The Stone Family

This our second visit - we were here in 2008. Weather has improved all week. Visited old favourites, Narberth and St Davids, still as good! Golden Lion in Newport has an excellent restaurant. Did the 7 mile Coastal walk from Abercastle back to Abercastle! We are now happily exhausted - perfect end before our journey home! No doubt we will be back.

The Swinnerton Family

Lovely relaxing time had, heading straight out for walks from the front door. Wonderful cottage and location!

The Godley Family

Excellent week in this lovely cottage. We would definitely stay again! We enjoyed walking on the Coastal Path and sitting outside watching the beautiful sunsets.
