Y Cwm, a 2 bedroom Pembrokeshire holiday cottage set within it's own grounds
About Louise Vaughan-Harries
The owner, Louise has a Health Service background but in 2007 gave birth to triplet boys and since that time has thrown her energy into raising her beautiful family. Louise has lovingly prepared her Pembrokeshire cottage to a very high standard and is really keen to make your stay at Y Cwm as pleasurable as possible!
Why Louise Vaughan-Harries chose Rosemarket
Y Cwm, originally 2 farm workers cottages has been passed down from generation to generation of farming stock and has been in her husband's family for 100 years or more. It was sensitively renovated to retain its vernacular architecture and retain as many of its original features as possible. From the outside it still appears as 2 cottages, but the accommodation from within is one to provide more living space. The cottage itself was lived in by Louise and her family for 11 years prior to renovating another property to accommodation her large family. It is the family's intention to always retain 'Y Cwm' and pass it down once again to their children. In the meantime, the cottage can be enjoyed by holiday makers and as it is so central to many of the County's towns, beaches and places of interest, it makes for a perfect place to stay, be it a short and longer term break!
What makes this Cottage unique
Y Cwm benefits from being situated in a very centralised location in the heart of Pembrokeshire. It is a charming little cottage bursting with character and offers many luxury features to make your stay as enjoyable as possible. If you wish to stay in a traditional stone Welsh cottage, this is the property for you!

My husband, son and I have just had a magical time in this amazing cottage! It is so comfortable and has everything you need. It took us 12 hours to drive down from Edinburgh but within half an hour we felt right at home enjoying the delicious welcome pack. We loved sitting around the fire in the evening and spending time out in the garden when it was sunny. It’s so picturesque and we always felt so happy to come back to it every day after our excursions. We loved all the beaches and spend a fantastic day at Little Haven. My son was in the water all the time while I did go in briefly with my wet suit! We had a wonderful lunch at Coast in Saundersfoot and then had a lovely walk along the beach there. I definitely recommend boating around Pembroke Castle. That was lots of fun! Every morning we’d drive down to Leyland Marina and I’d go a 5k run along the old railway line (thank you Louise for that tip!) while my husband and son enjoyed breakfast in the lovely Manilla’s Cafe which is perfectly situated to watch all the boats and eat amazing cake! This is our first visit to Pembrokeshire but I feel we need to visit again very soon as there’s so much still to do! Thanks so much Louise for the use of your beautiful cottage.
Wow, it sounds like you took full advantage of Pembrokeshire and all it has to offer! I’m also so pleased that you enjoyed my cottage and that it served your family and needs well. Thank you for taking the time to write such a wonderful review, it really does make my job so worthwhile knowing that you've taken home such lovely memories! You are more than welcome to return any time, Pembrokeshire hosts the Iron Man event each September, maybe something to entice you back!
Here’s wishing you all the very best from one Celt to another!

Beautiful cottage with every facility,especially in the kitchen
We enjoyed our week very much but felt it might have been a good idea to emphasise that a car is necessary for any expedition - you cannot walk from the house in safety because of the busy main road. Plenty of sites to see - Pembroke castle particularly recommended and we enjoyed doing parts of the coastal path. Inside the cottage was lovely although there were so many 'homely' knick knacks on surfaces that you had to move them to put your own possessions down! Standard of cleanliness and maintenance is very high.
Beautiful cottage in lovely setting.
Lovely cottage with beautifully decorated rooms, lots of space and garden setting by a stream to enjoy.
We had a very enjoyable stay wished it could have been longer.
Charming, secluded Pembrokershire property
This is a very charming, secluded property just outside of town. The listing pictures are accurate. The house was decorated beautifully, had everything we needed including a very nice welcome basket and the garden is tended nicely with a brook running nearby. The location of the property was perfect for us, being centrally located to all of the areas we wanted to visit. St David's, Freshwater Beach, Tenby & Carew Castle were our favorites. Louise was a great hostess and helped us a lot with instructions for finding the property - mostly due to this being our first stop on our first trip to the UK. The weather was hit & miss for the 4 days we visited and Y Cwm was a welcome place to come back to relax after a day of exploring all that Pembrokeshire has to offer.
Y Cwm is set within easy reach of 2 beautiful marina's, namely Neyland and Milford Haven where numerous cafes, restaurants and gift shops can be enjoyed by all. Many outstanding beaches can be easily reached for family days out, together with historic castles, such as Pembroke, the birthplace of Henry VII and Carew castle. Whilst Y Cwm is located in the heart of the countryside, a village post office, pub and shop is a stones throw away together with a superb fishmonger and bakery!
Pembrokeshire has one of the most spectacular coast lines in the UK and is home to its very own National Park. Perfect for nature lovers, walkers, surfers alike and all manner of outdoor pursuits! Many boat trips can be taken where one can enjoy marine life at its best, including puffins and seals around Skomer island and Europe's largest colonies of gannets can be experienced around Grassholm Island, or alternatively for the more adventurous of you, why not go for a thousand island white water experience through Ramsey Sound, near St David's!
Narberth is a little retail therapists jewel where you will find a whole host of cafes, restaurants and independent, boutique shops for that special gift or treat for yourself!
Children can enjoy many family theme parks, why not spend a day out in Folly Farm to see the Giraffes together with the newly built penguin enclosure! Heatherton World of Activities which caters for all age groups, Anna Ryder-Richardson's Wildlife Zoo, Oakwood Theme Park and of course Bluestone Water Park!
Many world sports events are hosted by the County, including Iron Man Wales triathlon set in September and also the renowned Red Bull outdoor High Dive world Championships.
During the summer months, Pembrokeshire offers some great local events such as the really Wild Food Festival, this year set in the historic Bishops Palace in the grounds of the World famous St David's Cathedral. The local Agricultural County show is a 3 day event, set in the County Town of Haverfordwest in August providing a showcase for the best of the county's livestock, equestrian events and much much more!
There are some wonderful award winning restaurants dotted all over to cater for all you foodies out there, providing local, fresh produce at its best!
Y Cwm has the benefit of being centrally located to many of the County's towns, beaches, marina's and local attractions. It is a great base to make your holiday a very enjoyable one!
