Awelfor is a detached cottage in Berea, a rural hamlet on the North Pembrokeshire coast, ideally situated between St Davids (4 miles) and Porthgain (2 miles), Awelfor boasts stunning views of the Irish Sea across neighbouring fields, from Strumble Head with its lighthouse in the North East, to Carn Pen Beri in the West - the sunsets are spectacular!

The cottage is beautifully appointed, with vaulted beams in the living room, slate floors throughout, wooden windows made by local craftsmen and a woodburning stove. It is decorated with Welsh woven wool throws , handmade curtains and blankets from local mills.

The Pembrokeshire coast path is on your doorstep. Abereiddy, the closest beach, with its famous Blue Lagoon is just 1km away and Traeth Llyfn, a hidden gem, is 2km along the coast path. Whitesands beach, a surfers paradise, is 5 miles away. The area is perfect for kayaking, climbing, coasteering and cycling. The ancient cathedral city of St David's, Britain's smallest city, named after Wales' patron saint, boasts a range of shops, cafes, restaurants and galleries. Local places to eat include the Sloop Inn and The Shed (great fish & chips!) at Porthgain and Crug Glas country house.

Changeover day is FRIDAY so the regular peak season booking period runs from Friday to Friday, although we may be able to be a little more flexible on short breaks etc out of season.

Wonderful cottage with magnificent coastal views

  • 5 of 5

Welcoming & warm this beautifully designed cottage had everything we needed for a week away visiting family. If you can tear yourself away their is a pleasant walk down to Aberideiddy where you can enjoy the stunning scenery with a walk along the cliff tops to Porthgain. Highly recommended for anyone needing to escape & wind down. We will certainly return sometime in the future.

Great property, well furnished and decorated to a high standard.

  • 5 of 5

Great views out to sea and in easy walking distance of Pembrokeshire's stunning coastline.

Within striking distance of all the key places around the St David's Peninsula, Awelfor is perfectly situated to allow for full days out as well lazy half days pottering around without having to spend ages in the car.

It was great fun star gazing on clear nights as well as watching hurricane Ophilia from the sofas!

We can't wait to come back!

Third time back. We love this place.

My wife and I love it here.

The views from the living room are breathtaking. You look out to sea across farmland and small farmsteads. There's also a great view out of the side window of a church with a craggy Tor in the distance. Even on a grey day it's very dramatic.

On a good day you can walk from Abereiddy bay to Porthgain along the beautiful coastline (a couple of miles each way), which is ok for our two terriers.

At Abereiddy bay check out the the coasteering at the blue lagoon, which is usually happening. Then walk north along the coastline. There's coves and ruins of old slate mining buildings along the route, look for seals and pups on the beaches, have lunch at the Sloop Inn, and on your return stop off at Traeth Llyfn beach which when the tide is out is stunningly beautiful, and safe to swim, if you like playing in the waves.

The house is nicely furnished with local wool mill fabrics, is well equipped for cooking utensils, and very cosy with the log burner lit.

There are so many great beaches and walks near by.

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed the location with walks from the house and easy access to St Davids and the beaches. The cottage is well set up and comfortable, the kitchen had most of the equipment required but we missed a microwave for quick snacks.

the bedrooms were very comfortable and we enjoyed eating outside.

thank you for the local information and maps.

Highly recommended

  • 5 of 5

On arrival at this cottage my 9 year old son said 'Is there a comment book as we need to write something really good about this place!'. We had a wonderful week here with our 3 children. The cottage is stylish and spotlessly clean, a perfect location to relax and unwind with your family. The owner was really friendly and helpful and I would recommend this cottage without any reservations.

Lovely cottage in an ideal location!

  • 5 of 5

We have just spent a week at Awelfor and we loved it! The cottage was spotlessly clean, beautifully furnished and very well-equipped, and it is ideally located for walks along the coast path and visiting St Davids. The living area is bright with fantastic views down towards the coast. Highly recommended - we hope to be back!

Awlefor is 10 minutes walk from the world renowned Pembrokeshire Coastal Path, the beach at Abereiddy and 'Blue Lagoon', an old, flooded slate quarry which hosts the spectacular Red bull cliff diving competition in september. The atmospheric harbour village of Porthgain and Sloop Inn are also within 2.5 miles. The Blue Flag beaches of Whitesands (4 miles) and Newgale (7 miles) are within easy distance for surfers, bathers or just sun bathers, along with numerous other hidden coves and bays.
