About the property

House in Newport Town, Pembrokeshire, Wales - 5 Minutes From Coastal Path. 10 Minutes Drive From Beach. Enclosed Garden And Off Street Parking

Recently built in a traditional style with coloured rendered walls, a slate roof and oak floors and doors, 'Puffins' also has all the comfortable mod-cons that you would expect from an up-market holiday house. The house is decorated in a smart, contemporary fashion and features include underfloor-heating, a wood burning stove and a wet-room. It is located in the centre of town within easy walking distance of the town’s shops, cafes and restaurants. It also has the benefit of a safe, enclosed garden and off-street parking - quite a rarity in Newport!

About Rebecca Hunter

My name is Rebecca and I live in Pembrokeshire with my partner Peter and dogs Quail and Puffin.

Rebecca Hunter purchased this house in 2012

Why Rebecca Hunter chose Fishguard, Newport, The Preseli Hills & Bluestone

I started building the house in January 2013 and it was finished in June 2014. It took a while but finally it's finished and I am very pleased with the result!

Since it is in the centre of Newport the house has all the convenience of being able to walk pretty much anywhere; along to the shops, down to the river, over to the Parrog, and it is just a stone's throw from several fantastic restaurants!

What makes this house unique

The house is traditionally built but has a very contemporary, modern interior. It is light, airy and spacious for summer living but with underfloor heating and a wood burner would be very cosy for a winter stay.

My partner and I have stayed in a lot of holiday houses over the years, both here in the UK and abroad. We like to think that we have learned what people need and want from a their holiday accommodation and how this can really make or break their holiday.

Since we have actually built this house ourselves we have really been able to design/decorate/equip from scratch and feel it really works!

Guestbook comments from the manager

'We couldn't have asked more more whilst staying in your delightful cottage! A home from home experience, everything was catered for!'

'…superbly stocked kitchen, lovely garden, and bodyboards for the children to use at the beach. This is definitely the best holiday home we have stayed in!'

'A really relaxing and charming place to come back to at the end of the day… a chilled glass of wine and BBQ in the garden - perfect all round!'

Fabulous cottage in a great location

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful cottage, right in the heart of Newport and just next door to the Golden Lion pub which apparently does very good food (we can't confirm this as they didn't have any space at all throughout our holiday - must be a good sign!). The house has all the amenities you could ask for and made the perfect base for our family of five (with three boys aged 10, 8 and 5). Rachel was very helpful throughout our stay and answered any questions we had quickly and efficiently.

If you are coming to Newport you will be spoilt for choice with restaurants and places to eat, although you may want to book in advance. The Canteen does superb food and is staffed by some of the loveliest people we have met! The Vic North Cafe and Deli is also very good - we had a lovely breakfast there with some really good coffee! The surrounding beaches are stunning, especially Mwnt, further up the coast. However, the boys had a great time playing in the sand dunes on Newport Beach and beachcombing at low tide. A highlight for my husband was the Pentre Ifan burial chamber (he's an archaeo-bore!), and we all loved Cilgerran Castle, about 20 minutes away.

All in all a fabulous holiday in a lovely village in a very special part of the world, made all the more special by the outstanding accommodation. Thoroughly recommended!

Second visit, and there will be a third.

  • 5 of 5

Great to be back at Puffins, and to experience it in the "unpredictable" February weather. If anything, the house is more welcoming and friendly than it was the first time we stayed there. Still equipped to a high standard, still really comfortable, still a place to feel at home in.

Can't speak highly enough of Rebecca - everything is taken care of and nothing is too much trouble.

The house is clean, comfortable and warm - I'd recommend it at any time of year.

We'll be back!

Great holiday house

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week at Puffins as a family of five (kids 5, 3 and 4 months). The house is really spacious and the open plan kitchen, living and dining area that opens to the large garden works so well for a holiday house. The decor is cheerful and fun which is just what you want on holiday! Newport is a brilliant little place with a really well stocked health food shop, a fantastic butcher come greengrocer and a bakery which makes you feel you have stepped back in time. There are also some great cafes. The kids loved crabbing at the Parrog and running in and out of the waves at Newport Sands (although with young children neither is really walkable. The owner is a pleasure to deal with. We usually like to go to different places each holiday but are seriously considering a return to Puffins. Highly recommended.

Great cottage

  • 5 of 5

What a great place to arrive in after a long and tiring journey! This cottage has everything: very spacious, nice kitchen, a lovely garden and of course stunning landscapes only a short drive away. And well maintained, clean and a very kind owner. What more could we wish for?

The cottage is very suitable for little children and also for rainy days: big enough even with small children.

We had a great time!

This is the best holiday cottage we have stayed in. The cottage is very clean and decorated to a high standard. The kitchen is very well appointed has everything you will need The beds are comfy, bathrooms are clean and spacious, garden is a sun trap perfect for the bbq.

Located in the village with plenty of places to eat and drink all very very good.

Local shop a bit dear but is the only one, the butchers is fantastic, also a small market one day a week. Just a short walk your at the coastal path with fantastic views.The beech is a 2min drive or a 20min walk.

In all this is a fantastic place can not recommend enough, we have already booked for next year.

The house is situated next to a lane that goes down to the estuary and the famous Pembrokeshire Coastal Path. A ten minute walk along this path will take you to The Parrog, Newport's old harbour. The beautiful Newport Sands are a 10 minute car journey away.

Excellent restaurants include; The Golden Lion, Llys Meddyg, and Cnapan. These restaurants are very popular and booking is recommended especially at weekends during the summer.
