You may or may not have noticed, but in the last few months we have added a great selection of fifteen cottages to our portfolio, and they’re all within one location. Gellifawr.
Nestled in the heart of the Preseli Hills near the Gwaun Valley is where you’ll find these fifteen beautiful stone cottages. Centred around a landscaped courtyard, they are accompanied by a wonderful country house hotel and are set within 6 acres of grounds complete with two enclosed lakes, picnic spots and breath-taking views.
We here at Coastal Cottages, love the chance to get out and visit properties and so we jumped at the invitation to stay overnight in the Gellifawr cottages!
Our stay began with a rather wet and windy drive from the office – so wet that we had to make a ru [...]Read More »
Halloween may have only just been, and Bonfire Night is still to come (although celebrations have started, see my previous blog) but we can no longer hide the fact that the biggest festive holiday of the year is finally upon us.
Yes, the Christmas bits and bobs have hit the shops, we’re all planning Christmas parties, and deliberating about where you’re going to be for dinner on the big day. And in true festive style, the Christmas markets are all marked on the calendar!
Christmas markets are a great way to get into the festive spirit, even if you know a Scrooge or two! And here in Pembrokeshire, we really do have some great ones happening! So if you’re holidaying with us in the run up to the big day, it’s well worth planning to visit some whilst you’re in the area! And if you don’t have a Christmas holiday planned yet, it’s not too late! Give our Reservations Team a call on 01437 765765 to check availability!So when & where are these Christmas markets?!

The seaside village of Newgale had a visitor from a famous face this past weekend, with Cardiff Blues player Josh Navidi staying in one of our cottages. Born in Bridgend and playing in our capital city, Josh is also a keen surfer so it really isn’t hard to see what attracted him to our end of Wales.
Josh and his partner Alexandra chose a traditional cottage overlooking the sandy beach at Newgale as the base for their Pembrokeshire weekend, a great property in a fantastic location. Bwthyn Beatties is a charming 2 bed property with stunning coastal views, and really is the ideal place for a relaxing break away from the hustle and bustle of city life.
The sheltered and enclosed garden ensures a private and peaceful retreat on those sunny days, whilst the paved patio complete with sea views invites you for an alfresco breakfast or maybe even a chilled [...]Read More »
