About Y Bwthyn

Y Bwthyn is a delightful romantic cottage converted from an old cattle shed, it enjoys an enviable position only 400 yards above the sandy cove of Cwm yr Eglwys.

Steps lead up from the large, shared lawn to your own decked patio with the most breathtaking views - the perfect spot to enjoy an alfresco meal and watch the sunset over the bay and the stars at night. The decked patio leads straight into the well-appointed cosy open plan living space, comfortably furnished throughout in a mix of modern contemporary and antique pieces in warm vibrant colours, while the welcoming bedroom is a cool relaxing retreat. Enjoy your breakfast sitting in the window and soak up the sea views.

The property is reached from the main A coast road via a narrow road with passing places. The property is ¾ of a mile from the main road where there is a regular bus service. The entrance to the property is through double metal gates on to a large gravel parking area where there is room for several cars, as well as boat trailers to park. The approach to Y Bwthyn is along a short grass track. A car can be taken along this track from the main parking area and can be parked near the steps which lead up to the cottage. 7 wooden steps take you up to the small fenced decking area in front of Y Bwthyn. This area looks over a flat grass lawn area which is for visitors to use. The front door into the cottage has a very small step into the open plan lounge/kitchen/diner which is all on 1 level with a table and chairs, sofa and kitchen area with standard height worktops. The 2 windows at the front give plenty of light and look out over the sea. There is a wall mounted TV in this room. The bedroom is reached through a short corridor and up an 8 and a half inch step. The bedroom is on 1 level with a double bed, cupboard and chest of drawers and bedside tables with 2 touch lamps, which are activated by touching them. The shower room leads straight off the bedroom, without a step. There is a good size shower with a sliding glass door cubicle. There is a small step into this. There is a basin with mirror, light and shaving point above and a standard wc. If Y Bwthyn is let in conjunction with Perci Penrhiw Bach the adjoining property's main access from the gravel parking area can be up a concrete slope and across a concrete veranda which then leads through a small wooden gate measuring 28.5” wide on to the decking area in front of Y Bwthyn avoiding the 7 wooden steps. If Y Bwthyn is let with the adjoining property Perci Penrhiw Bach the internal double insulated white panelled door near the bathroom in Perci Penrhiw Bach can be removed and the 2nd door to Y Bwthyn can be unlocked allowing access to this property down a small step. The double door and insulation would be completely removed in the 2 properties if they are let together. There would just be an ordinary door between the 2.

Thank you Mary and Huw for your warm welcome. The cottage is fantastic also the views. We have had a lovely time walking, sight seeing, shopping. Its been enjoyable and relaxing. Hope to see you both again!

Ann and Peter Roberts

Dear Mary and Huw, Many thanks for your warm welcome. Sadly we have to leave today after wonderful week. The coastal scenery of Pembrokeshire is the best in the world. Apart from Sunday (Wet) the weather has been fine and sunny with some glorious sunsets. The location of Y Bwthyn is superb! How many places have such wonderful sea views. You are very very lucky to live in such a fantastic place. The memory of this place will be forever in our hearts.! Many thanks for your hospitality, Best wishes!

Chris and Chris

A great, relaxing week. Thank you Mary and Huw for sharing your little gem on the Pembrokeshire coast with us. The cottage is clean and cosy and perfectly located for touring this part of Wales. If only the weather had been as sunny as your welcome, but even in the rain could not spoil the fantastic view from the window. On a clear night, the stars were something else!!


Wonderful views and relaxing. Made us feel at home. Plus lovely walks and lovely people. Thanks very much.

Malcolm and family

Thank you both so much, it's rare that you find accomodation that is as clean, warm and cosy as Y Bwythyn but your welcoming demeanour has made our stay a real pleasure, you will see us again! Many Thanks.

Mary, Huw and Dawn

Arrived at 3.30pm weather not great but our home for the 4 days couldn't have been better. Thank you.

Sorcha and Ben

Our 2nd time here, we love it! Fabulous cottage, great weather and hospitality. Lovely meals in The Old Sailors and worth a drive to Porthgain and The Sloop Inn. Thank you.

Helen and Harvey

Just the location for winding down, superb view, despite the weather! Thanks for yuor kindness Mary!

Gareth and Jackie

Thank you both for a very warm welcome (thanks for the milk) nice touch!! Your cottage is beautiful with the most stunning views. It's a great base cottage for amazing coastal walks. We have been comfortable here and didn't need for anything. All mod cons provided. Thanks again and will see you again.

Mary and Ken

To Mary and Huw, It seems to be very strange to be packing up to leave such a lovely place which rapidly became home to me. Thank you very much for your warm welcoming touches and friendly helpfulness all week. I'm leaving feeling and looking (I hope!) refreshed and energised. A perfect cosy place for drawing and painting - all with a stunning sea view! Do hope to come again. Very best wishes Mary and Ken.

Mary and Huw. Thank you for such a warm welcome. We have had a super week and feel completely rested. The Cottage was comfortable, clean and well equipped with everything we needed. The location is outstanding and the views are magnificent. You truly have a special place here. Thanks again, hopefully we can come again.

Ffran and Thelma Morris

An extremely comfortable cottage - very snug.We have enjoyed the serenity of the location and also the fantastic views. Home from Home! Hope to see you soon.

Wonderful place to spend our first wedding anniversary together. Lovely views and cottage wonderful. Thank you Mary and Huw for sharing this part of the world with us

Andrew and Tina

Warm welcome when we arrived from Mary and Huw. Spectacular views, cottage very comfortable and warm even though its -1 outside.

Jan and Andy

Great weather/ swimming and walking. Lou lou's in Newport do really lovely lunches and take aways (even salad dressing!) The Old Sailors does lovely Lobster and crab.. yum yum! Really enjoyed this peaceful spot. Best views!

Gareth and Clare

As lovely as last time. We are tempted to look up squatters rights to see if we can just refuse to move out! We know we must explore somewhere else but can't beleive anywhere will be as lovely with so many lovely walks on the doorstep and a view to die for!

Jim and Mai

Lovely week. Just one day of rain! Very dog friendly. Stunning view. So welcoming. Would love to come back.


What a wonderful view! And a very comfortable and welcoming cottage. Hope to come back.

Karen and Jim

Thank you so much for such an amazing introduction Wales. Such a relaxing place! We adored the views, walks, food, beaches and the cottage was just perfect for the three of us (Especially for our dog) We would love to think we will be back.

Frank and Ann

Mary and Huw, thank you for your warm welcome. We have enjoyed your lovely cottage and fantastic views so much in spite of the weather going pear shape. Diolch yn fawr.

Roger and Jean

Very enjoyable few days in a comfortable cottage, good weather, good walks and good hosts, many thanks.PS shame to go back to the rat race.

Ben and Kate

Such a fantastic four nights at Y Bwthyn - thank you May and Huw. No bit of coast path is ever the same and we enjoyed walking to Newport and exploring the little town, the walk around Dinas Head, and towards Fishguard. The perfect get away.

Maddy and John

We achieved everything we needed to this week, immaculate, comfy cottage, superb views, lots of walks and 'chill out times' many thanks.

Julie and Rick

Thanks to Mary and Huw for sharing their little bit of heaven, wow what a find this is, been to Pembrokeshire many times, this is by far the best. We are going home refreshed, but will return again. Still can't believe we had two days on the beach in October. Lots of love.

Hazel and Mike Lloyd

Had a wonderful 4 days holiday. We visit Pembrokeshire a few times a year as we have friends in Cardigan and know it well, but we have never been to this part. We absolutely love it, the views are spectacular and your cottage is nioice and cosy. Would recommend it to anyone. Thank you.

Rob and Lynn

Mary + Huw, Thank you for a very warm welcome; we had a truly relaxing few days. It's such a shame to be leaving on such a beautiful morning with a calm snowy scene. Look forward to returning. Diolch yn fawr

Gaynor and Nigel

Lovely views from cottage, endless walks around the area. Had a relaxing time, and the weather was dry and sunny! Thank you Mary and Huw.

Patrick and Abi

Fab cottage, stunning views and beautiful area. Mary and Huw are lovely. Couldn't ask for more and will definately be back.

Gill, Rudyard, Leek

Super week here in this cosy wee Chalet/ Appartment. Spectacular views! Enjoyed lots of sun, which really made my week extra special. Difficult to leave on this beautiful morning...

Tom & Melissa Maple

Lovely little house and nice welcome. Very nice here & great weather. Indain takeaway was good and delivered! Strumble Head good for the sunset. Thanks.

Dave & Glen Edwards

Where else could one be for St David's Day, but the magical Pembrokeshire old County. Too much to list, but the moon rising, the sun rising, the stars, never seen like this in busy Cardiff. The change that we needed was enriched by our beautiful cottage, enhanced by the care and thoughts of Mary & Huw. We shall not leave it another 25 years to return.

Alex & Alexa Donan

Well, what a lovely holiday. The people, the scenery, the cottage and even the weather! We have had such a lovely time exploring this part of Pembrokeshire. I can't wait to come back. Thank you for providing such a lovely location base for our explorations. PS Walks to/from Strumble Head are a must.

Nikki, Dau & Tilly(boxer dog)

A wonderful & relaxing weekend in an amazing part of the weekend! Thank you Mary & Huw. The coastal walk around Dinas Head is a must! The trail begins down by the beach (Cwm yr Eglwys)- especially good if you have brought a dog because the Old Sailors Rest is at the end of the walk with seating! Then there's a nice flat walk back to the cottage through the valley on your return. We will definitely be making a return visit!

Philip & Rebecca Webb

We have just had a marvellous week here relaxing and recuperating after a hectic few months in London. We will definitely be coming back! We loved this place, the decor, the bed, the walks - everything - just what you need to get away from things! Despite spots of rain, we made the best of it and had a fab time. I only picked this place because of the decor and it certainly didn't disappoint. Manorbier castle, Pembroke castle, St Davids cathedral, Poppit sands, Newport sands and Cardigan - we did as much as we could and loved it! Hope to be back in Summer climes.

Helen Edwards

Just reading previous comments makes us so proud to be Welsh, despite only living in Camarthenshire, the neighbouring County! We have managed to recharge out batteries in this wonderful part of North Pembrokeshire, Cwm yr Eglwys. What a perfect tranquil view to wake up to, breakfast on the decking in fresh air. Y Bwthyn is homely & so comfy for 2 people.

Gwen & Neil Winpenny

Excellent cottage, fantastic views. Ideal for the dog having the field to run in. Pembrokeshire is beautiful, lovely beached and great restaurants. We recommend the Canteen in Newport- excellent food. Thanks to Huw and Mary for a lovely holiday.

The Randles

It goes without saying that the views surrounding the property are amongst the finest around, you'll already be aware. A walk around Dinas Head is a must see with a stop at the Old Sailors, Pwllgwaelod - a good resting point before returning along the much flatter and faster valley path. Whilst here, we have visited Cardigan & Tenby, both have a plentiful supply of boutiques abd 'rummage' shops. Tenby has a lovely cafe overlooking the beach, 'Cafe Vista', which does an excellent coffee and cake. Discovered a frozen food takeaway menu in Newport, just ask at the Wholefood Shop. Lucy our dog has made friends with the ponies and the sheep- quite a feat given that she's a border collie. Lovely hosts, have had a relaxing time.

Tina & Kevin Noon

Mary & Huw, thank you for a lovely week, you are very lucky to have this place, it is beautiful. We work for ourselves and this week we have come right down and are calm now. The views are stunning and so is the place. We will come again and will recommend this place to friends. Thank you for a lovely week.

Anita & Russell Hicken

I think we're a little in love with everything about being here and were in no hurry to leave! Wonderful chalet & hosts (thank you Mary & Huw) and simply spoilt for choice with views and beaches. We're feeling relaxed and our dog Mia has finally stopped barking at the animals! Very much hope to be a repeat customer!

Hayley & Roger Clapham

Thank you for a relaxing week - no noise....wonderful! We were able to sleep in every morning. Good places to eat in Newport (would recommend booking as everywhere full for dinner). A great walk from here to Fishguard along the coastal path - but get there before 2.30 as everything stops serving lunch thereafter! Hunt out the local brewery & cheese makers... both delicious! We also loved the ponies!

Tina & Paul Strode

We had a very enjoyable week. The view was amazing and the accommodation is lovely. We recommend going to see Cilgerran Castle as the views are stunning. If you bring a dog, the Golden Lion is dog-friendly and the food is fab! The owners are excellent hosts and if you have any questions they are more than happy to help. Even when it poured with rain, we have really enjoyed our week.

Bob & Lin Pardoe

A very restful week in a truly beautiful setting . The accommodation was wonderful and the view just absolutely stunning - especially when the sun shone. The area in general (this is our first visit to Pembs) was very nice with lots of places of interest and lots of little lanes to explore. Wonderful!!

Alison & Simon Boniface

Wonderful week spent in a fabulous cottage in a lovely setting. Weather has been amazing, sunshine all the way apart from one day, who needs 'abroad'? We used the 'Food Trail Guide' one morning to get more unusual places - Caws Cenarth(cheese) and Wendy Brandon(preserves)are both excellent. The Morawelon at Newport Parrog waterfront is excellent for food. Beaches at Newport Sands, Whitesands, Poppit and just down the lane, Cwm yr Eglwys, were all tested and approved!.
