  • 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!

Lovely cottage with stunning views

  • 5 of 5

We had a fab holiday at Awelfor. The cottage is in the perfect spot with stunning views across the fields to the sea. The cottage itself was well equipped, clean and really nicely furnished, finished off beautifully with Emma's own designed furnishings. We were staying with our 3 month old so didn't want to eat out every evening but dining in with that view while the sun sets was as enjoyable as going out. If cooking, the kitchen had everything you might need or The Shed, a short drive away in Porthgain, does scrummy fish and chip take away. If you do want to venture out to eat with a baby The Sloop Inn, also in Porthgain, was very accommodating.

Anywhere on the coastal path makes for a beautiful walk and a stroll down to the blue lagoon is a must!

Thank you Emma we hope to return.

Myself, my partner and our 3 1/2 month old son have just returned home from a very relaxing week in Berea. Awelfor is a charming, homely cottage set in a small hamlet with the most amazing views of the Irish Sea. The cottage is light, with massive floor to ceiling windows, spacious and spotlessly clean. The wood burning fire makes it really cosy. The soft furnishings and curtains are handmade and very unique adding a lovely warm feel to the cottage. We chose to eat in a lot as we could sit at the large dining table and look out across the fields onto the channel. Curling up on the comfy sofas, fire lit after a busy day exploring the area was just perfect. There are lots of things to do and see all on your doorstep. My favourite was the Blue Lagoon in Abereiddy. We spent ages watching the seals play and also people coasteering. We also enjoyed fossil hunting on the beach. We ate at The Sloop Inn at Porthgain, which I would highly recommend. Traeth Llyfn beach is a must if you fancy a walk with fantastic views en route.

In summary a delightful spacious, homely cottage in a perfect location to explore this beautiful part of the world. I would 100% recommend and would definitely return.

Loved this cottage! On entering we were welcomed with the sight of a spotlessly clean cottage, the smell of furniture polish, freshly cut flowers, and an unexpected welcome pack of local produce comprising of bread, milk, cheese and chutney.

The open plan kitchen/lounge was light and airy, and contained quality fixtures, and fittings with a local theme, whilst the two double bedrooms plus the bunk bedroom were nice and cosy. The views from the floor to ceiling windows overlooking the Blue Lagoon at Abereiddy, and extensive views of the Irish sea are stunning. At night the flashing lights from the Strumble Head lighthouse gave us both a sense of adventure!

Locally we loved Traeth Llyfn, a secluded beach reached from the coastal path between Abereiddi and Porthgain. The tiny harbour village of Porthgain is a gem, and takes you back to another era, and we found the Shed Fish Resturant and the Sloop Inn served good food, especially seafood.

We will definitely return next year.
