About Ceri and Bob

We fell in love with Rising Sun 10 years ago and it has been our bolt hole and sanctuary ever since! We get down to Newport as often as we can, but are happy to share this magical place with visitors who always love it and want to come back again.

Ceri and Bob purchased this cottage in 2005

Why Ceri and Bob chose Newport

Rising Sun is perfectly located just out of the bustle of the town, but near enough to walk down for an evening in the pub! It sits just on the side of the mountain with lovely views to the sea, estuary and across the valley. The garden is beautiful with its large pond and seating areas, have a go on the swing!

What makes this cottage unique

Rising Sun is such a relaxing, comfortable yet quirky and interesting home. As a former pub with some lovely features, it's as interesting to be on the inside as it is to be outside admiring the views!

Great location, beautiful cottage .

  • 5 of 5

Loved everything about this cottage, really pretty with beautiful gardens and a great view over the bay. Stayed with family and found it very comfortable with a well equipped kitchen and large table so we could all sit together at meal times. Lots of lovely walks and beaches and Newport town is very pretty with places to eat and drink. Weather wasn't too kind but because we had somewhere lovely to go back to it didn't matter. Thanks we had a great family holiday.

Beautiful house and stunning views

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we walked in to Rising Sun we felt at home. The house is beautifully decorated and maintained, with extra touches for convenience eg kitchen very well stocked with pans and bit and pieces. Large rooms for eating and relaxing and a very well kept garden, with pond, various lawns, trees, shrubs and flowers. We so enjoyed sitting on the stone patio and looking at the view! Watching the sun go down from the garden and come up over the hills was one of the highlights of the stay. The house is within walking distance to Newport for anyone with average fitness.

Definitely the loveliest holiday house we'd all stayed in, almost too nice to go and explore the local area!

Newport Town nestles in the beautiful Pembrokeshire National Park coastline, and is blessed with two beaches, an excellent range of small independent shops, restaurants, cafes and pubs and a street market on Mondays.

The magical Carn Ingli mountain is its unique backdrop. Also within easy striking distance, there is the famous Gwaun valley, the Preseli range (the source for the bluestone used at Stonehenge), many beautiful beaches, and a dramatic coastline. All this is home to stunning wildlife, ancient woods, burial chambers from previous civilisations, and many wonderful walks.

The Iron Bridge, famous for bird-watching on the Nevern estuary, Pembrokeshire coastal footpath and Parrog beach are all within a mile.

Pembrokeshire is the ideal spot to choose either a quiet tranquil break, or there are all sorts of activities close by if you have the energy!
