Family holiday in Abbey Forge

  • 4 of 5

We've had a lovely week's holiday in Abbey Forge. The house is perfect and near to all the lovely parts of Pembrokeshire. St Dogmaels is a lovely village and we enjoyed walking down to the abbey and cafe and to the shop. We had great weather and enjoyed lots of beaches and great meals at The Ferry Inn. We enjoyed the board games available and loved the jacuzzi.

Poppit Sands is the closest beach to St Dogmeals yet many more beaches are within accessible distance.

You can also enjoy the newly created Wales Coast Path.


As there is no public transport a car is essential. The nearest airport is Cardiff which is 2 hours away by car. Fishguard is the nearest ferry port for travellers from Eire.The nearest train station with ongoing bus connections is probably going to be Carmarthen.

The Poppit Rocket coastal bus service links St Dogmaels with Cardigan, Poppit Sands and Newport. Services are specifically designed to help walkers with one morning service to drop you off at your start point and one afternoon service


5min walk to the local shops, cafes and pubs, 5min car journey to the local farm shop for local, fresh produce. St Dogmeals abbey is a stones throw away and well worth a visit, The Coach House Heritage Centre and Y Felin Water Mill are also within walking distance. Cardigan is the closest town and is only 1.3miles and Poppit Sands is 2.7miles.

Further Details:

Cardigan has 3 supermarkets, banks, Boots, W H Smith, clothes and gift shops. An interesting indoor market and Farmers market on a Thursday.

Cardigan Castle has recently been restored and was the site of the first ever Eisteddfod in 1176.

There is also the Welsh Wildlife Centre, situated on the Teifi Marshes and bordering the river it makes its way to the sea passed Cardigan. In summer there are water buffalo helping to maintain the marshland habitat.

Cenarth Village, also on the Teifi is the site of the famous Cenarth Falls and the National Coracle Centre.

National Trust properties in the area include Colby Woodland Garden, the Tudor Merchants House at Tenby, Llanerchaeron and Dinefwr Park and Castle, as well as stretches of coastline and countryside.

The national Botanic Garden is about an hour away, as is Aberglasney House and Garden
