Places to visit in Pembrokeshire during your self catering holiday:
The nearby village of Trefin
The acclaimed village of Trefin, is situated on clifftops between the famous harbours of Porthgain and beautiful Abercastle. Trefin has its own cove on the edge of the village at Aberflin, with numerous rock pools in this small sand and shingle beach which is surrounded on three sides by rugged cliffs. Trefin is quite a bustling village with a post office, pub, an artist’s gallery, a more general craft shop, and a couple of tea shops.
Just a one mile walk from Traethllyfn along the coast (and less than three miles from our cottages) is Aberreidy, a ‘blue’ sandy beach with dramatic cliffs. The attractiveness of the scene offered by this location, previously the home of quarrymen who have left an interesting legacy on the cliffs either side of the beach ,is extenuated by some really pretty colour-washed cottages on the edge of the beach which must be the most painted scene in Wales, if not in the United Kingdom. Every gallery in West Wales has pictures of this scene.
On the Traethllyfn side of Aberreidy is the much admired Blue Lagoon once a slate quarry the walls of which have been breached by the sea.
Moving up the coast is Abercastle. This harbour is also home to some small fishing boats and there is a sand and shingle beach.
Just further on in the direction of Strumble Head are the two beaches of Abermawr and Aberbach, adjacent to each other. Backing on to these two lovely, sandy, quiet beaches is a wonderful valley with various picturesque cottages and mills straddling a river heading out to the beach. There are numerous short circular walks to be had in this area.
St. David's and Amenities
Quite apart from the wonderfully scenic location, the cottages are also well placed for amenities, there is one pub serving really well kept real ale and also bar food just a few hundred yards away, with two more pubs selling good quality bar meals only one mile away, whilst a fourth pub, the Sloop, only one and a half miles away in the fishing harbour of Portgain, is probably the most famous pub on the St Davids Peninsula. Our hamlet is well catered for by way of provisions with a small store within 50 yards and a petrol station with a larger grocery store attached offering a wide selection of groceries, newspapers, logs etc. on the main Fishguard/St Davids Road just a couple of hundred yards away. There are a substantial number of other pubs within 5 miles, a couple of restaurants, and needless to say numerous tea shops within a similar distance.
Then further north is Strumble Head with its magnificent lighthouse, which takes you round to Fishguard, a busy small town.
Then one must not forget of course the city of St Davids itself, 6 miles in the opposite direction and only in size a village yet boasting a Cathedral (and much more) and its near-by beaches. Also opposite the headland of St Davids Head is Ramsey Island, well worth exploring. The coastal path too that runs around the Pembrokeshire Coast can easily be explored with the aid of the regular walkers buses.
