Beaches near Ty Isaf

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.
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.

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.
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.
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.
The cove of Nolton Haven is a small inlet of pebbles and sand. At low tide it's revealed to be a long and narrow beach, perfectly suited to sunbathers, as it has the added advantage of being sheltered by high cliffs on either side. With the car park behind the beach, Nolton Haven is a good starting point for excellent cliff-top walks along parts of the Pembrokeshire Coastal Path, finished off with lunch in the Mariners Arms!

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.
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.
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.
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.

 

Customer Reviews of Ty Isaf

McGuinness Family

Had a wonderful week and did some lovely coastal walks. House very cosy, the log burner was brilliant and the house in an amazing location. Went to eat at the farmers arms - received a warm welcome, very nice food (and nice pool table too) Great half term holiday


Mrs Wendy Gibmey

We came for Christmas and what a welcome! We had a christmas tree, lovely wine and the house looked fantastic. We got stuck into life in Mathry - a drinks contest in the Farmers Arms and NYE in the village hall. We loved it and the cottage - a fabulous place to come home to after long walks on the beach.


The Shepherd family

We took the kids to Ty Isaf (2 boys) and had an awesome few days. The house is huge and really tastefully put together with a pub next door (always handy)! Minutes away from White Sands, St David's and Abereiddy (the Blue Lagoon), there's so many beautiful places to visit nearby. Equally you could just chill round the house or in the garden as both are big enough to get some space and enjoy the views. Would definitely recommend a visit.


The Davies Family

What a super time we had at your lovely bolthole! The place felt relaxing and homely - just right for a break with a whole array of age ranges! We sampled Farmers Arms fare - delicious Sunday dinner. We went for long walks - would recommend the bluebell woods walk to Abermawr. St David's was well worth the visit - visited the Cathedral and gallery at the information centre - lovely cafe there as well - with Lobster as the special on the day we visited. Travelled all around Broard Haven, the Marloes, Dale went to Pendine. Travelled up to Cardigan - Castell Henllys and Pentre Ifan well worth the stop off on the way. Your place was so peaceful and we slept very well - Thanks for the home from home. x


Posnet Family

What a beautiful cottage! We were so pleased that we chose to come here. it was just what we needed. Grannie says she loved her pretty room! We have really enjoyed exploring the area. Pembrokeshire is new to us all apart from Grannie and we have fallen in love with the area, we particularly enjoyed our 'Voyages of Discovery' boat trip around Ramsey island - Shearwater trip. We visited Dyffryn - Fernant garden near Fishguard which was a wonderful hidden gem of a place so peaceful and relaxing. The meal at 'Cwtch' was lovely and bits from the deli opposite too (spicey pasta salad yummy). Too much to mention. Thank you so much.


The Jones Family

You've put a huge amount of thought and creatvity into assembling all the varied elements that go into making Ty Isaf. Its such a distinctive home and maybe that's something that marks it out - it feels like a home. We're old hands in mid Pembrokeshire as tourists but this was the first stay in Mathry. What great views over to Letterston and the hills beyond. Had three generations staying here and all enjoyed their time. Also entertained two separate families to evening meals - great times. Hope all goes well for you and Ty Isaf in the future.


The Davies Family

We had a lovely week of sunshine with plenty of trips out, Abereiddy beach is a favourite. The Farmers Arms is a very nice pub with good food, suitable for families. The kids really enjoyed their "fighting and farming" experience at Castell Henllys near Newport. Lovely views relaxing and we enjoyed the log burner. The kids appreciated the toys to play with in the garden and loved the rope swing. I am sure we will be back.
