About Ty Olwen

Lie in bed and look straight out to the sea at Abercastle Bay, Pembrokeshire. This cosy holiday cottage has sea views from all rooms and is the perfect place to spend evenings taking in fantastic Pembrokeshire sunsets from either the patio, lounge or clifftop garden. For families Abercastle's shingle beach with rock pools will entertain the children for hours. Bird lovers can view seabirds in Abercastle bay from the front door and further afield Skomer, Skokholm and Ramsey islands are very accessible (don't forget your binoculars). Keen walkers can access the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park Coastal Path from Ty Olwen's front door or use the local Strumble Shuttle bus to access other nearby coastal villages and walk along the Coast Path back to your cottage. The comfortable bedrooms with views over the beach, sea and Abercastle Bay will provide all you need for a good night's sleep.  A great location for exploring the St Davids Peninsula and the many delights of North Pembrokeshire.

Ty Olwen is on a gravelled single-track road some 50 metres from the main road, with off-road vehicle parking by the cottage. The pathway down to the nearby sand and shingle beach (about 50 metres away) is suitable for most people, otherwise there is a roadway. A step of 6” leads up to the front patio from the car parking area, which has two external lights for use at night. A small step leads to the fully equipped kitchen area. Entry to the cottage is over a small storm-guard onto the front porch, which has hanging hooks and a small bench seat. In the lounge there is a flat-screen TV/video player with remote control. The staircase has some 15 steps with a handrail on one side, and leads to the two bedrooms and bathroom. The bus stop is 50 metres away on the main road. The timetable will be found in the Pembrokeshire National Park newspaper –‘Coast to Coast’. There is a shop and garage in the nearby village.


Beautiful location with stunning views. Great house to explore the stunning Pembrokeshire countryside. Lovely atmosphere and local amenities.


Our second visit this year. Thank you very much again for welcome pack on the table, much appreciated. We hope to be back next year. Thanks


The porch! The view! No need to mention the location. Thank you


A lovely week in a lovely cottage! Thank you very much, well needed!


Wonderful week! We also plan to return. We really enjoyed watching the sunset from the bench and also life in Abercastle. We have two very happy girls, although we were all sad to leave.


First visit to Abercastle and Ty Olwen. We loved it and plan to return. Beautiful sunsets. Good walking from cottage. Thank you

Sarah and Norman

Our 9th visit to Ty Olwen and was another fabulous stay. The weather was fab for most of the week, which meant plenty of walking. As ever, the St Justinians - Porth Clais stretch was magnificent. We came the same week last year - flowers definitely a bit later in 2018! We'll be back.

Christine and Alex France

Had a lovely few days and would like to come again. We thought the cottage was very cosy and comfortable. Stayed in many cottages in this area and this one is highly recommended!

Bronwen and John Hewes

Another lovely holiday here. It's so peaceful here and the cottage is in a wonderful situation. Please don't miss the secret garden, accessible from the lane behind the cottage. A wonderful panorama, a great view.

John & Sonia Miles and Jennifer Horsfall

Glorious week - sunny every day. Flowers glorious as usual. Walked both sides of the harbour.


"I need a space, a restful place, where worries are few, so we can enjoy the view. It's a win win win at Ty Olwen!"

Val and Colin

Our second time here. Its tranquil as the first. Wonderful! This time our friend Annie came with us and experienced that tranquillity too

Colin Stanley

A Fabulous retreat, greatly enjoyed!

Liz Hickson

Lovely Cottage and great weather until today! Had some fine walks. All praise to coastal Cottages after I locked myself out a couple of days ago- how embarrasing :( but was dealt with great courtesy!

Hatchetts Party

Lovely setting, enjoyed the sights and loved the activities locally

Hoerty Family

what a lovely place to spend a week, the boys have had so much fun making dams on the beach and throwing stones in the sea. We loved exploring all the local beaches, a small cove just outside Trefin was a favourite with a cave. Whitesands busy but lovely too. Two very sad boys in the car now waiting to go home, we'll miss our little cottage by the sea!

Bidmead Family

Abercastle is a great place from which to explore Pembrokeshire. Ty Olwen has lovely views of the bay. Highlights for us were, Whitesands, a trip to Ramsey Island.

Harrod Family

We are sitting enjoying our last glass of red wine on your bench while the sun shines down on us - 7.20pm - beautiful. Our 11 year old is on the beach - again!!- looking for any crabs she can find. On arriving we walked south on the headland and saw a pair of peregrines- wonderful! Our 13 year old nearly managed to give up her I pod- nearly! Thank you for no Wifi!! We are sorry we have to leave

Mark, Tessa & Jacob

First time in Abercastle, wont be the last. Cottage perfect and very friendly people - 29 Degrees, why go abroad. We visited a beach to the right of whitesands, 15 min walk along cliff Top. Really good with caves full of water

Pete and Nill

Lovely week with great weather encouraging us to do lots of favourite coastal walks. We used the bus back from Porthgain ( lovely Crab sandwiches at the Sloop Inn) and to Strumble head. The rain started on our walk back from Strumble head and continued on and off. On Friday morning we visited Gwuan Valley Brewery, Narberth and Solva. A beautiful sunset for our last evening following a sunny afternoon

Mary & Allan Marks

Sarah and Norman - you made the best choice of holiday ever! We are probably in our 14th/15th years of Abercastle and it doesn't get any better than this last week. So hot and sunny - marvellous. The Robin expected to have titbits every time he saw us sitting on the chair. Here's to the next break

Sarah and Norman

Fifth time in Ty Olwen and couldn't wait to get back here. It's been a marvellous week- perfect weather for walking and watching the tide. It just keeps on going out and coming back in again! Have seen plenty of seals and sea birds around the coast, and as always have marvelled at the fantastic flowers. Its so good to be able to walk without having driven- and the buses are still running! Where has the week gone? Its all over so soon, havent even eaten out anywhere. Who would want to miss the sun setting over the cove? Have a marvellous time whoever is here next! Thanks for everything once again

Shannon & Alex

Our first visit here. We joined friends who have stayed in the cottage twice before. Beautiful weather, walks and sights that I will revisit in memory as I heard back up north. A wonderful holiday

Sandie & John

An enjoyable week with mixed weather. Cottage clean and cosy. Amazing selection of birds around Abercastle...never seen so many wrens! Wonderful, peaceful view to look out on ( even in stormy weather)... Nature rules. OK! We'll be back sometime

John & Sonia

very windy on arrival but then the weather improved with mostly sunny days. The flowers on the coastal path were amazing very quiet and relaxing week. Our second stay at this cottage in 2014

Luke, Jodi & Heather Lily (6 months)

Thank you for a lovely stay, it was Heather Lily's first holiday and she loved the clean air, the sound of the river, waves and watching the many little birds come to visit. We stocked up on food from the Nica store in St Davids and set up base camp in Abercastle. Highlights included a walk to abermawr beach and a picnic, the Strumble bus to Porthgain and fuelling up at the Shed before walking the coastal path home. A lovely, lovely, lovely holiday- we will be back xxx

Emma, Chris, Isobel and Sam

Thank you for a wonderful stay in a beautiful cottage. We couldn't have asked for a more perfect week. We'll be back!!

Mary & Allan Marks

Another brilliant week in our favourite cottage and village. The weather wasn't too bad and we managed a shortish walk every day . We've found another good place to eat - The Pump on the green, in Spittal, we shall certainly go back. Here's to our next stay

The Mustoes

A lovely relaxing holiday had by all, Cottage is lovely with fantastic views had lovely meals at The Ship in Trevin and Somethings Cooking in Letterston, we will be back!

We have had a relaxing week, the cottage was lovely, the weather good. Abercastleis a beautifull place, the people of Pembrokeshirevery friendly and helpful, we got to know trevor and his daughter who are the nicest people we have ever met.
