About the property

Built in 1864, this welcoming, end-of-terrace Victorian cottage is situated in a idyllic, tranquil position in the popular Pembrokeshire village of St. Dogmaels. The cottage is ideally located in the heart of the village with magnificent, ever-changing views of the estuary from the bedrooms and garden. The property has been sympathetically renovated in a modern-eclectic style, creating a sense of comfort and character with many thoughtful details such as a well-stocked choice of books, guides , maps, broadband access and a folder detailing local ‘must dos’ and other useful information.

Curl up in front of the log wood-burner; enjoy the works of local artists throughout the cottage and make use of the well-equipped kitchen with it’s wealth of original features such as inglenooks, limewashed stone walls and a decorative open fire-place perfectly complementing bespoke, hand-painted oak kitchen units equipped with modern appliances and Fired Earth accessories. A separate cloak room, flooded with natural light, provides a useful storage area. Upstairs, there are two stunning bedrooms with spectacular estuary views and stripped wooden floorboards. There is an abundance of light and original features such an antique white cast-iron bed, a, a lime-washed feature wall, carefully chosen lighting and an original fireplace. Outside, there are three different areas to relax in, including the back garden with it’s spectacular view of the estuary.

Sweet country cottage

  • 4 of 5

This is a pretty little stone cottage which has a gorgeous view of a peaceful Welsh valley.

It is in a delightful village. We enjoyed staying there. We felt the lounge needed more modern comfortable chairs to give a more cosy feeling, but otherwise it is quite comfortable.

Cup of tea in bed with wonderful views

  • 5 of 5

We were lucky to pick the weekend of Cardigan’s barely Saturday to stay in st Dogmaels. Great weather whilst those at home got rain. Glad we chose to stay in this cottage rather than b&b

Cute cottage in lovely village

  • 4 of 5

St Dogmael village is a wonderful place, small but great facilities, a good local shop, 3 pubs and a lovely coffee/gift shop at the Abbey. Poppet sands is close by and Mwyn beach (National Trust) the other side of the estuary is lovely as is Newport. Arrival at the cottage is via a very steep path, we got used to it but its a bit of a challenge with luggage. The views from the front garden and the terrace at the back are lovely. The cottage had everything we needed and it was lovely to have some tea/coffee/salts/peppers etc left for us, Similarly there was washing up liquid, a dishwasher tab or two to see us over arrival day would have been helpful, but we got these in the local shop the next day. The beds are super comfortable, the shower over the bath was fine but we couldn't find anything to open the bathroom skylight, which we'd have liked to do. Unfortunately the cottage does suffer from being built into the hill side and the wet August meant there was damp on the rear sitting room wall, we ran the dehumidifier to counter this and bought a scented candle, which helped. Overall we loved our time here, the village and the surrounding area are great and well worth a staycation.
