On the ground floor the traditionally converted barn boasts a kitchen/diner & bathroom with shower, where there is underfloor heating, dining table & chairs and a settee, electric fan oven, washing machine, dishwasher, microwave & fridge & freezer. Upstairs there are 2 bedrooms, one with a king size bed & the other a twin with single beds. In addition there is a lounge with a wood burning stove, TV with Free View, settee and chairs, DVD & a large scenic window.
There is a small patio area housing outdoor table & chairs and a BBQ.
A few steps further up the hill is one of the most romantic spots in Pembrokeshire - a small seated area with views straight across to Ramsey island and the sea - your own personal bit of heaven.
Lower Porthmawr sits majestically above the internationally acclaimed Whitesands beach in the heart of the Pembrokeshire National Park. The views from the cottage are directly across the Irish Sea towards Ramsey Island and are truly spectacular. The cottage has been sympathetically renovated in the traditional Pembrokeshire style and following it's completion won the master builders national award. It is only a short walk to the Pembrokeshire coastal path and a 5 minute drive to the cathedral city of St Davids. Whitesands Roost is a barn conversion, and is on the same site as Lower Porthmawr. It sleeps 4 and boasts 2 private areas for viewing the coastline and Ramsey Island.
I own both Lower Porthmawr and the Roost in Pembrokeshire which offer amazing coastal scenery and walking, relaxation and serenity, plus many adventure sports.
Please explore the site and choose which you would prefer
I look forward to hearing from you

The cottages are situated in one of the most amazing locations. They are in South Wales, 1 mile from St Davids, the smallest city in Wales, which has a beautiful cathedral and an assortment of restaurants, cafes and craft shops. However, the highlight of the location is that the cottages sit high on a hill looking directly over the Irish sea and across to Ramsey Island. The whole area, which includes the Pembrokeshire Coastal path - 180 miles - is a national park and therefore pristine. Whitesands Beach, beautiful in it's own right but also delightful for families with it's many rock pools, is also a haven for surfers and swimmers. The coast is home to many seals and the nearby Ramsey Sound hosts porpoise and an abundance of sea life.
The cottages are only a 5 minute walk from Whitesands Beach and the coastal path and only a 15 minute walk to an isolated beach inaccessible by car. The views from the coastal path are incredible, whichever direction you walk in. The cottages have a variety of maps and guide books to help you find your way around. We do take dogs on request and the surrounding area is ideal for them. When guests have discovered Lower Porthmawr and The Roost, they return time and time again. Try it for yourself and you will see why.

The Roost came up to our every expectation and more, and was just-so in terms of equipment, furnishings, and all other comforts.
The location is just so interesting, with Whitesands Bay, St David's Headland and so much coastal path so directly walkable within minutes from the Roost.
I stayed with my husband, three small boys and dog. We all loved the feature-filled property and had a great time at the nearby beach. The walk along the coastal path was fantastic.
Set above Whitesands Beach there are lovely outlooks and sea glimpses from the huge panoramic upstairs window . A wood burning stove really adds value especially when it's cold . Beds are comfortable, one downstairs bathroom with good shower .
The area is amazing with lovely scenary and St Davids is a great little place .
Loved it. 'The Roost' is so welcoming and comfortable. Amazing views, great walks on your doorstep, boat rides just a short car journey away. Debbie was fantastic when booking. Can't wait to visit again next year. So pleased I picked this one.
The Roost is very warm, comfortable and well equipped. It provides a very good base for exploring the Pembroke coastal path and Whitesands bay is just a short walk.
Nearby St David's is an interesting little city with a good selection of small, quality food shops. We only ate out at The Bishops which provides decent quality pub food.
The Cathedral and Bishop's Palace are gems.
My only criticism regarding the property concerns the ceiling height in the double bedroom. I am not particularly tall but I could only move around by constantly crouching.
We loved our stay at the Roost, out of the way from the noise and bustle but close enough for all amenities, short walk to a great family friendly beach but also close to the coastal path for longer walks straight from the door
