    “We had another lovely stay, despite the weather.”

    Good walks almost from the front door and beautiful Cwm Yr Eglwys to swim in. The cottage was comfortable and well served with towels and bedding. I would definitely come again. Only slightly negative note, which others have mentioned. Still unclear about general rubbish. No black bag or where to put it. And the saucepans!

    Thank you for your feedback and we're so please you enjoyed your stay! We're sorry the information about general waste still hasn't been updated and that there were no black bags for you - we changed cleaners a few weeks ago and there are obviously some teething problems that need to be sorted out. We're a bit confused about the comments on the pans as there are quite a few tucked in the corner cupboard under the hob. We provided casserole style pans rather than pans with handles as they are safer with children - but there are at least 5 of different sizes. Once again, thanks for feeding back we really value your comments! Property Owner

The property

Dinas Cross 1.2 miles.

Trem-Y-Don is a charming, traditional, end-of-terrace fisherman's cottage in the historic cove of Cwm-yr-Eglwys within the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park.

This family-friendly property, which sleeps six guests and is located a very short walk from the beach.

It features ground-floor living, a private garden, off-road parking, and is dog-friendly, so the whole family can enjoy a relaxing getaway!

A spacious sitting room with high ceilings, skylights, and an open fire will greet you, perfect for curling up on the sofas with a good book during the day, while the TV and DVD collection will keep you entertained in the evening.

Moving through your home-from-home, you'll find everything you need in the kitchen/diner, including a wooden table with benches for six guests to dine, and a fully-equipped kitchen, granite worktops, and lots of storage space; there's even a washer and dryer to sort sandy towels and muddy walking gear!

The back garden provides an outdoor refuge where you can enjoy your morning coffee on the decking with outdoor seating, which looks out on woodland for a secluded feel.

When it's time to unwind, there are two bathrooms to choose from, both with a bath, handheld shower, and towel rail.

The three bedrooms, two doubles and a bespoke, handmade child's bunk, all feature plenty of storage space, charming cottage windows, and traditional latch doors, retaining Trem y Don's historic character.

In the mornings, take the 100 yard stroll down to St Brynach's church ruins overlooking a peaceful sand and pebble cove, perfect for swimming or exploring rock pools.

There are plenty of coastal walks to follow, including along the Pembrokeshire Coast Path around Dinas Head to Pwllgwaelod Beach.

In the village of Dinas Cross, you can eat out at The Ship Aground or the Masons Arms and stock up at the village shop, whilst the larger town of Newport is home to an array of popular eateries and the golden sands of Newport Beach.

Make sure you visit nearby Pentre Ifan, a 5500 year old Neolithic burial chamber and one of Wales' picture postcard photo opportunities.

Be sure to pack your hiking boots to embark on a walk up into the Preseli Hills for spectacular vistas, but if that's not for you, visit the Shire Horse Farm in Eglwyswrw to meet the gentle giants or visit Fishguard Town Hall to learn about how Jemima Nicholas, a Welsh heroine and a giant of Welsh history, managed to repel Napoleon's forces in the Last Invasion of Mainland Britain in 1797!

Whilst there, call down to picturesque Lower Town where Hollywood classics such as Gregory Peck's Moby Dick and Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton's Under Milk Wood were filmed!.

Further afield, you'll find historic St Davids where spellbinding Cathedral, the ruins of St Non's Chapel and Well, and idyllic sandy coves all await.

On your next family-friendly holiday in Pembrokeshire, Trem-Y-Don is sure to please.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £250.

About the location


Newport 2.5 miles.

The scattered village of Dinas Cross has a well stocked mini market store and a pub, and nestles between the Preseli Mountains and the wonderful Pembrokeshire Coast Path. Pwll Gwaelod and Cwm-Yr-Eglwys beaches are both paces away, both with breath-taking scenery offering the opportunity for tranquil days in perfect settings, and are almost unnoticed by the general public unless they leave the main route through the village, with there being a petrol station, two pubs a fish and chip shop, as well as a restaurant down at Pwll Gwaelod beach. Nearby Newport is a quirky seaside town steeped in history, with various shops, tea rooms and pubs and is also a great place to go boating. With castles, mills, craft centres and golf courses galore scattered all over this beautiful Welsh county, this is the perfect base for a break all year round.
