Simply and comfortably furnished with attractive antique pieces enhanced by pretty, floral fabrics, the traditional Welsh blankets in the bedrooms ensure you will be warm and cosy. The double bedroom nestles in the eaves and offers both beautiful views out to sea and across the fields. The sitting room full of character with its vaulted ceiling, beams and exposed stone chimney breast with an open fire is perfect for relaxing on chillier evenings, while the gallery above is an ideal spot to enjoy a good book. The kitchen/diner with its rustic antique pine cupboards, farmhouse table and Welsh settle is perfect for family meals. There is even a Victorian suite in the bathroom. The walled garden offers a sheltered terrace and lawn planted with apple trees where you can enjoy an alfresco meal on a summer's evening and soak up the sea view.

Beaches near Towyn

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.

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.
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.
Solva is a beautiful rocky inlet which floods, except at low tide, providing a sheltered, safe anchorage for yachts and pleasure craft. Not surprisingly this fine natural harbour has given the village a long seafaring tradition. At low tide there is a small stretch of sand, but the picturesque little harbour provides a pleasant afternoon for watching the small boats coming and going. A busy little village in the summer, with plenty of cafes, restaurants, pubs and gift shops. Solva is just east of St Davids on the A487 Haverfordwest Road. Parking is on the harbour front.
Whitesands
Whitesands is one of the best beaches in the world – and that's official. Its not only the top beach destination in Wales, but ranks in the top 20 worldwide, beating the likes of Bora Bora and Natadola in Fiji. With its mile-long expanse of sand, the bay curves round to the rocky point of St Davids Head. Whitesands has been rated one of Britain's premier places in the Good Beach Guide and annually receives a Blue Flag award for water quality. Ideal for families it is also renowned for its surfing and watersports, being a firm favourite with both beginners and professional surfers. For 6 months, in and around the summer season, Lifeguards man the beach. The excellent beach-side shop and cafe provide a range of refreshments. Other facilities include parking, toilets, surfboards and windbreak hire, plus a bus service that travels back and fore to St Davids every half hour in summer months.
The dramatic and towering volcanic outcrop of Carn Llidi rises behind the beach, and is well worth the climb. It offers truly stunning views over the beach and bay, the sunsets are magnificent. Alternatively, follow the Pembrokeshire Coastal Path through the Iron Age fields and on to the Peninsula Settlement at St Davids Head. Dog restrictions apply to the entire beach between 1st May and 30th September.
Whitesands
Porthmelgan is a sandy and secluded beach to the north of Whitesands, accessed only via the Coastal Path. Park at Whitesands and follow the path round to the right of Whitesands Beach, underneath Carn Llidi.
St Davids
Caerfai is the nearest beach to St Davids and is popular for bathers, although at high tide the beach is completely covered leaving only rocks and boulders. A feature of the beach is the unusual purple sandstone along the cliffs, which was used to build St Davids Cathedral. The beach itself is pleasant and can very occasionally have some small surf. Its enclosed nature makes it unsuitable for kiting or windsurfing though. It is however an excellent place for coasteering with plenty of caves and rocky outcrops to explore. The cliffs around Caerfai also provide some good, popular climbing routes. Limitied parking is available at the top of the path to the beach or within the large caravan park. To find Caerfai beach follow the signs from the National Park Visitor Centre in St. Davids.
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 Davids
A small cove popular with divers and kayakers with lots of climbing routes on the surrounding cliffs. Again, as with all the beaches in this area also a popular place from which to explore parts of the Pembrokeshire Coast Path. There is a car park with an ice-cream van in the summer but very few other amenities. To find Porthclais follow the small road leading SW from The Cross Square in St. Davids.

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.

The Cook family

Lovely cottage, fantastic location, great for going on walks and jumping into the bue lagoon for some! Weather had its ups and downs but overall a great 4 days.


The Carey Family

We love your cottage and thank you for the Welsh Cakes they were yummy....


Martin and Sue

We loved your cottage and its setting. Thank you for a most enjoyable week.


The Rimmingtons

Superb weather and sunsets. Thank you for the Welsh Cakes and we enjoyed the apples from the garden with the blackberries picked from the path opposite. Very comfortable and we were happy to 'eat in' We did pick up a crab sandwich from the Shed before returning on the bus yesterday. Thank you.


The Fitchet Family

Great holiday. We have body-boarded and blackberried, surfed and sailed. We recommend a visit to Ramsey Island for the wildlife. Baby seals sooo cute! This is a fantastic location.


The Jack Family

We have had a wonderful holiday here in beautiful Pembrokeshire and been so fortunate with the good weather. Newgale beach is brilliant for big waves, Whitesands too crowded for us, very attractive local beach over the hill. Boat trip to Ramsey Island a real high light, saw seals and porpoises. Delicious fish and chips from The Shed at Porthgain. Towyn is a lovely cottage a\nd we have been very comfortable here, sleeping like logs every night after a day out in the fresh air. Thank you Mair for sorting lout the washing machine and clearing away the mud after the storm. Overall we have been very happy here and enjoyed celebrating our youngest daughter's 7th birthday in such a beautiful location.


The Sergents

Beautiful location. Great for beach side activities. Had lots of fun.


Paul, Julie and Kim Noble

Brilliant short break (much needed) in this wonderful cottage and location. We have fallen in love with it and wish we could stay (forever). This stay has been more perfect than we could ever imagine, and although the cottage is so beautiful and cosy. I have barely been able to tear myself away from the sea front here! I already can't wait to be back, Thank you. Kim. We have watched coasteering every morning 'Brrrr' and managed a coastal path walk everyday - superb. So much love and care has gone into your cottage - we love the photos of its re-construction - cleaver and considered and so much a part of the landscape and it character. Again thank you - can't wait to visit again.


Andrea and Mark

Thank you for a lovely stay. We enjoyed some windswept walks along the coastal path, amidst the wild weather. The shed in Porthgain - the best fish and chips we've had.


Chris Rachel an baby Gethin

Away with our Birthday daughter, Twenty eight, Rachel, this week, Here with partner, Chris, And Gethin, our grandson, asleep, While they're out climbing the quarry, Making the most of their stay, It's sunny and scenic, so special, We'll have to return one day, An electric blanket went down a treat, Surprising her mam last night, While a hot water bottle worked wonders, We slept even more, than alright. Julia and Michael from Western. Are arriving here very soon, Glamorous Gran and Grandad, Will son be over the moon, Like us they'll love your cottage, A log fire crackling inside, An historic relic from times long gone, A bygone commune that died from a typhoid epidemic, And an storm that finshed em off, But hardy souls they must have been, In heaven, spirits aloft. So Dioch Mrs Riahcards, Rachel and Chris, for our stay, Don't want to leave so soon, But work beckons, Saturday! Best wishes from two proud parents and granparents, Goody Gramps -Gumpa and Nanny Twinkle, Vaughan and my beautiful wife, Diane who brought tears to our girl as we cought up with her and Chris on a little, but wonderful coastal walk! Now she then, made us so proud, once again.


Chris Rachel an baby Gethin

A wonderful location with a very warm welcome (welsh cakes and daffodils) The cottage itself was beautiful and very clean. We fully enjoyed the experience. We did a couple of fantastic walks along the coast and would recommend these. Thanks Again.


Barry and Bonnie

Memorable stay: we carefully chose the 3 hurricane week to be staying on a west facing beach! Never the less, it was unique. Thank you especially for the warm welcome.


Med, Gaynon, Tilly and Joseph

A wonderful weekend in a stunning cottage. Had lovely walks on the beach and along to Traethllyfn - good training session up those steps. Quite simply - we want to live here. Diolch Mama

A lovely cottage in a beautiful place. Next time we will come when the sun shines and the rain stops. Thank you.


The Dutton Family

We have so enjoyed being back in Abereiddy it is a magical place. Our first time saying in Towyn. It is a lovely cottage. We loved the view out over the bay.


Elli Age 13

I really loved this cottage and all the surroundings I especially loved all the wonderful seaside sunsets, I took so many pictures. The sea was lovely for bodyboarding and the Blue Lagoon was so much fun! I managed to jump off the high one! Overall this was a great holiday destination and I would love to come again someday.


Lauren Age 11

I love this place! Asss it is right near the sea we can go to the beach when ever we like! The sunsets were absolutely ace. It was soooo cool when we found there were body boards in the cupbaord and we got to use them. The only downside was there is no phone signal or internet connection. So once again I LOVE THIS PLACE!!! Wait we also saw shooting stars here - ACE.


Twaite Family

We have had a really fun time here. The views from the cottage are wonderful! It's so nice in the morning when we can just wake up and go down to the beach. Thank you.


Christine and Rhydion

Wonderful time in lovely Abereiddy loved the cottage and the weather was perfect. Boat ride around Ramsey Island was well worth the trip and the walk across to Porthgain was great. Thank you for sharing your bit of Pembrokeshire with us. Well enjoyed by everyone - we will be back.


Mason Family

It was wonderful to stay in this cottage, it has a wonderful location and we realy enjoyed the living room with the fire place. It's so nice, when the sun wakes you up in the morning (shining through the window above the beds upstairs) We had great weather (no rain at all), therefore we enjoyed long walks on the coastal paths. We will certainly recommend this cottage and we look forward to come back here again. Thanks for the welsh cakes aswell.


Clarke Family

Finally back after 4 years!! as lovely as we remembered. Great week of relaxation and sea air. Mixed weather!! When the sun shone glorious!! Thanks for the welsh cakes and electric blankets!!

The Clarke Family

A Happy 2012 to Towyn! A great place to see in the New Year. Had gales - storm force winds all week but the cottage was warm and cozy(although we did get through a lot of coal) Brilliant, relaxing place with wonderful walks - despite the wind. Will be back when its warmer and hopefully see the beach everyone talks about instead of waves and spray. Many thanks for providing such a lovely home. (p.s. despite weather Alan and Don managed a New Year swim!!)


A lovely, relaxing week, did lots of walking along the coast round St David head. Excellent meal at Cwtch. Thank you for the welcoming cottage!


Sarah, aged 19

We've been coming to Abereiddy since 1999 when i was 7. It is still really anjoyable to sit and watch the coasteering from the blue lagoon. If you have a spere couple of evenings in August, go and see the plays at the Bishops Palace with Fetival Arts and visit the Sloop!


Another enjoyable break in Towyn. Our usual visit to "The Sloop" - lovely meal! Lots of walking and just enjoying the unique atmosphere of the place.


Wonderful cottage, wonderful beaches, wonderful weather, wonderful week! Thank you!


July 2011

Thanks for the lovely welcome, we enjoyed relaxing in front of the fire and Abereiddy's exceptional beauty. Diolch. Thank you.


Beake group

Only 4 inches of rain this week, but we had a great time and managed 20 miles on foot. Unfortunately it has been so unseasonably warm that we couldn't fully appreciate the cosiness of the cottage. It must be heavenly when its chilly.


Isobel, David, Srah and Jonny

Thank you for a lovely cottage. Have had a wonderful week with superb weather. Wonderful views and sunsets, lots of birds, bats, seals, didn't catch any fish, lots of shows, even a shooting star. Didn't want to go home.


Parkers

Towyn is a very pleasant cottage to stay in! There has been very good weather and beautiful sunsets. Thank you for the tea on arrival as well! We'll be back next year for sure!
