A hand crafted oak staircase leads you up to an on-suite mezzanine bedroom with four poster bed. It is set in a beautifully landscaped garden with spring fed ponds and stream, and commands splendid views over the surrounding countryside.Whether cuddling up by a roaring fire after walking a deserted winter coastline, or chilling out in the spa bath as sunlight and birdsong flood in from the garden, the Dovecote and Pembrokeshire have something for everyone whatever the seaso...The Dovecote at Cilgelynen is an imaginatively converted detached stone barn packed with unique character features.

We had such a lovely stay at Dovecote, really peaceful and quiet. The only reason this isn't 5/5 is because of the mould across the bathroom wall, the smell wasn't pleasant being next to the bedroom. Other than that we had a really nice stayMore

I'm sorry you had problems with mould in the bathroom. This winter has been particularly wet, and as the Dovecote has traditional solid stone walls unfortunately there are times when it is impossible to keep the mould at bay. The wall has now been treated...More

Beautiful little property, ideal for a romantic weekend away. We loved the location and would like to return in the Summer to see what it's like at a different time of year. We have already recommended Dovecote to friends.

About the neighborhood
The Dovecote is situated at Cilgelynen a mile outside the small village of Llanychaer near Fishguard, Pembrokeshire. The idyllic position of the cottage along with its proximity to the Pembrokeshire Coastal National Park and the Preseli Hills makes it a perfect choice for couples that enjoy the great outdoors. Although the Dovecote is quiet and secluded it is easily accessible by main road from the M4 / A40, by rail (stations in Fishguard and Haverfordwest) and by ferry from Ireland!
Getting around
While you really need a car to get around this part of the world, there is an excellent bus service that runs the length of the Pembrokeshire Coastal National Park. These buses (including the Poppet Rocket, Strumble Shuttle and Celtic Coaster) provide a great way to do one-way walks along the coast. Full details are available in the cottage.
