Plas Bach is a detached cottage, which has been recently renovated to a very high standard. Situated in the Pembrokeshire National Park, and a short walk from the coast, it provides a perfect base for walkers and for those wanting a relaxing getaway.
Plas Bach sleeps up to 6 guests. There are 3 bedrooms: one double, one family room (double plus single bed) and a single room. A travel cot and high chair are also provided. The Shaker-style kitchen is equipped with a touch control hob, double oven, dishwasher, fridge freezer and microwave. There is also a washing machine and tumble drier.The cosy sitting room has a wood burning stove, sumptuous sofas and a dining area. There is a TV with Freeview and dvd player. The newly fitted spacious ground floor bathroom has a bath with electric shower over, and there is another toilet and washbasin on the first floor.
A small selection of books and children's toys are provided, and you may of course wish to bring your own dvds to watch.
Plas Bach has central heating and is very cosy.
The garden is a particularly attractive feature of Plas Bach. There are spectacular views across the valley in one direction, and glimpses of the sea in the other. The patio area has a picnic bench with umbrella for outdoor meals, and there is a seat at the end of the garden where you can enjoy a quiet drink and watch the sun set.
The property is approached by a driveway with a 5 bar gate, and there is a gravelled parking area for up to 3 cars.
We purchased Plas Bach as a holiday home in 2002, having searched the coast from north to south Pembrokeshire for our ideal property: somewhere with character and charm, offering total peace and tranquillity. Plas Bach has been let as a holiday home for 10 years, and we have had scores of happy guests, many of whom have returned for further holidays. Within the last two years, we have carried out major refurbishments, replacing the open fire with a wood burning stove, upgrading the appliances and re-carpeting the cottage. Our three children (now grown up!) have many happy memories of playing on the beach at nearby Poppit Sands, crabbing at St Dogmaels and visiting nearby attractions such as Castell Henllys, the iron age hill fort and Pemberton's Chocolate Farm at Llanboidy.
As busy teachers, we continue to get away to Plas Bach when we can, as it's the perfect place to unwind and recharge. We love wandering down to Ceibwr Bay in the evening, and sitting on the rocks to watch the sunset, or sharing a bottle of wine in the garden before lighting the woodburner and settling down for the evening.
Having family links with this area, we were always aware of its natural beauty. We have holidayed in various locations along the Pembrokeshire coast, but what drew us to the north of the county was the spectacular coastline, and the fact that it has all the benefits of a holiday area without having been over developed. There are sandy beaches nearby for a traditional family holiday, without the problems of parking and overcrowding found in some holiday resorts.
We also enjoy eating out, and the area offers a wealth of good places. We are particularly fond of The Old Sailor's at Pwll Gwaelod, which offers fresh seafood dishes with views across the bay to Fishguard. We combine this with a fantastic circular walk around Cemaes Head, taking in the magical Cwm Yr Eglwys. The Ferry Inn at St Dogmaels also offers tasty meals, while a little further up the coast, the Ship at Tresaith is a lovely spot to enjoy delicious food while looking out over the sea. The Canteen in the nearby little town of Newport is another favourite of ours.
The area also has a wealth of arts and crafts attractions, with Newport being a vibrant artistic community, with a number of small galleries.
Apart from the many spectacular coastal and inland walks, activities including kayaking, surfing and pony trekking are available locally. Boat trips are widely available in Cardigan Bay, both for fishing or simply to watch for seals.
The unique city of St Davids is about an hour's drive to the south, and we also love taking the short boat trip from Tenby to Caldey Island.
To sum up, what made us fall in love with Plas Bach, was the feeling of being completely 'away from it all', with stunning coastal walks all around, yet also being within easy reach of good restaurants, gastro pubs and other attractions.
