Today’s blog is dedicated to one of our properties which is situated in a great spot in the North West area of Pembrokeshire, Beudy Gwyn in Penparc, near Trefin.
View from bedroom
You’ll find this property in the small hamlet at Pen Parc, a truly beautiful spot with views right across the countryside to the coast. On a clear day, absolutely breath-taking. A perfect property for those families wishing for a more relaxing and peaceful holiday – a chance to get away from the flurry of city life, draw in long breaths of fresh country air and marvel at how quiet life can sometimes be.
That being said, Penparc is a great destination to use as a base and really explore the county. Just a short walk away at the Square and Compass you’ll find a petrol station with accompanying shop, particularly useful if you’ve forgot some of the essentials! (We’v [...]Read More »
A firm favourite in many hearts, both those who live locally and those who holiday here. And it’s not exactly tough to see why. A beautiful sandy beach reaching almost two whole miles in length, and backed by that oh so memorable, pebble bank.
The best thing about this beach is that it’s great for everyone. Yes it may have a high pebble bank, but there are wooden walkways which appear every summer to help you tackle it. It’s dog friendly all year round, with restrictions only on the middle section during the summer allowing dogs still to wander at either end of the beach. It’s a popular with water-sports enthusiasts due to the often good conditions for surfing, kayaking and kite surfing. No shingle in sight, just a long stretch of sand, this beach is perfect for a day with the little ones building sandcastles and paddling in the [...]Read More »
Holidays are often all about relaxing and getting away from the many stresses of everyday life. And that’s precisely why we would like to introduce our brand new Pamper Hamper range!

Upon hearing of a holiday property with a Welsh name, my first instinct is always to find out the English translation for its name, as I’m not a first language Welsh speaker. And I imagine that many of you reading this are in the same boat.
So what does “Y Cwtch” mean?
Tough question. If you’re a frequent visitor to Wales, or have any friends or family who have some Welsh heritage in them, you’ll have already heard of this word. I’m sure every Welshman (and Welsh lady!) who has ever been asked this question, has struggled to quite find the right answer. I myself was often asked this when attending university in England, and I admit, to know how to answer is difficult.
The urban dictionary gives the definition;
“Welsh word for an affectionate hug. There’s no literal English translation, but its nea [...]Read More »
Yes it’s that time of year already! National BBQ Week is officially upon us, and here at Coastal Cottages, we are making the most of it!
We’ve contacted our pal William at Gwaun Valley Meats who’s sorted us out with the very best of his burgers and sausages, we’ve dug out the office barbecue, and our Val has once again donned her chef’s apron and cooked up a storm!
We all love a barbecue don’t we? A chance to sit in the sunshine and eat good (if done properly!) food whilst relaxing and catching up with friends. And even if you’re not the best of cooks, chances are your mates will eat that over cooked (aka burnt) sausage anyway. With a little bit of ketchup and a soft bread roll – isn’t that what barbecues are all about after all?BBQ FACTFILE 17500 people once attended one BBQ making it the biggest in history, all to celebrate someone’s 40th bi [...] Read More »
