3 bedroom, quiet location, well equipped, friendly on hand owners, pets welcome Bwthyn Holmws is a cottage converted from a 200 year old barn with all amenities needed for a holiday be it a few days or a month! The cottage is semi detached (cottage next door with same owner, sleeps 4) and the owner lives on site. Each cottage has its own private patio, but guests are welcome to use the grounds. There is ample parking, and the cottages are situated about 200 yards from the main road, so it is relatively safe for children and pets. The master bedroom has a king size bed, and the other 2 are each twin bedded. One is on the same level as the living room, one is upstairs and as you can see from the picture is 'in the eaves'. We are always being complimented on the comfort of the beds!

We are always being complimented on the comfort of the beds! The bathroom has a separate shower and a large corner bath, it also has a large cupboard housing the boiler and a washer/drier. The kitchen is full equipped with an electric cooker, large fridge/freezer, microwave, dishwasher, kettle, toaster. There is plenty of crockery and glasses. The living room has a television/DVD and a small stereo/CD. The cottage is fully centrally heated - suitable for all year round accommodation. The farm is non-working, but we still have land which is farmed, so at times there will be tractors, combine harvesters etc going past, but occasionally, and maybe not at all in the time you are with us. It is generally very peaceful. This is a 'black sky' area - there are no street lights at Holmws, and you will see the stars at night. There is plenty of wildlife, particularly birds (from garden birds to swifts and swallows to common buzzards and kites). We are in the Pembrokeshire National Park, the only coastal national park in Britain. From Holmws you can walk to the coast path (about 15 minutes) or up to the common land on the slopes of Carningli. Locally we have many ancient woodlands and waterways - perfect for walkers - and many of our beaches are dog friendly too. we are about a mile from the centre of Newport - a village sized town! Newport itself has all that you need - butcher, wholefood shop, post office, small Spar, iron mongers, fish shop, gift and paper shops, small clothing shop, hairdressers and a tourist information centre. There a 4 pubs, 3 of which do food, a boat club (member only, but guests can be signed in on request), several restaurants, all in all a lovely bustling atmosphere. The town is steeped in history - our Town Charter predates that of London - you may be lucky enough to see the Town Crier, or the Mayor and Mayoress decked out in their red robes and chains. A ancient kiln has been found under the memorial hall which is currently being renovated as an 'interest' site, we have a cromlech, Carreg Coetan, the town houses an amazing dolls house museum - come and explore! North Pembrokeshire is a Welsh speaking area - but oh so friendly! It is a land of Celts, standing stones, folklore, witches and wizards, tall tales and real history. We have mountains - but more like rolling hills, a softer landscape perhaps than North Wales. The county is surrounded on 3 sides by sea - many many beautiful beaches, some with amenities, some accessible only by walking. Cardigan bay is renowned for seals, dolphins and porpoises. Bring a camera (or phone!) and your binoculars if you have them. The nearest local beach is Aberrhigian - about a 20 minute walk. Traeth Mawr (Big beach) is a 10 minute drive with plenty of (ticketed) parking. The smaller beaches accessible by car of Pwllgwaelod and Cwm-yr-Eglwys in Dinas are also within a 10 minute drive. Newport has a links golf club, tennis courts (via the tourist info centre). The Parrog in Newport is popular for sailing, kayaking etc.More

About the neighborhood
This is amazing walking country. Beautiful coastal, woodland and heathland walks. The local town is small (very) but bursting with local and friendly useful shops, restaurants and pubs. Masses of local history. Holmws itself was originally a Viking settlement and features in the Doomsday book as well as much newer tomes!
Getting around
The T5 goes past the end of our lane (runs between Aberystwyth and Haverfordwest), there are several trains a day into the nearby town of Fishguard as well as a ferry terminal. If you come down the M4 we are about an hour from it’s end!
