Coastal Cottages - Amazing Sea Views - Lower Porthmawr Sleeps 5 (2 Bedrooms)

Overview

Property

Updated: 02-Dec-2016
Two 2 bedroom cottages above Whitesands beach, St. Davids, Pembrokeshire

Lower Porthmawr sits majestically above the internationally acclaimed Whitesands beach in the heart of the Pembrokeshire National Park. The views from the cottage are directly across the Irish Sea towards Ramsey Island and are truly spectacular. The cottage has been sympathetically renovated in the traditional Pembrokeshire style and following it's completion won the master builders national award. It is only a short walk to the Pembrokeshire coastal path and a 5 minute drive to the cathedral city of St Davids. Whitesands Roost is a barn conversion, and is on the same site as Lower Porthmawr. It sleeps 4 and boasts 2 private areas for viewing the coastline and Ramsey Island.

Fantastic Whitesands stay

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is in the perfect location and the perfect place to stay whatever the weather - and you get four seasons in one day in Pembrokeshire. We love the Aga, the comfy beds, and the loo with the view but it's the location that is totally unbeatable. Whitesands is a 2 minute walk, Porthmelgan less than 10 minutes away and great walks galore are right on the doorstep. This was our second visit and we can't wait to come back again.

Perfect !

  • 5 of 5

The owners have created just the right mix of a relaxed approach to holiday letting with everything you would need during your stay. Sometimes you can feel a little 'perched' in someone elses home but not here ! No little notes everywhere that can make your teeth itch sometimes. We will definately be back. So much to recommend locally............ Where do I start. Fantastic location. Cosy when the weather turns too !

Fabulous cottage with great views

  • 5 of 5

Lovely cottage, very secluded other than the Roost behind. I don't think I have ever stayed in such a warm and cosy cottage and the memory foam mattress on the King size bed was an unexpected pleasure. Soon got to grips with the Aga and enjoyed a very deep, hot bath in the claw foot, looking out to sea as I did so. Great walks from the door. Spectacular views over White Sands Bay. The hopper bus runs from the bottom of the hill into St Davids and over to Porthclais, although it was a struggle to leave the sunken, sheltered garden when the sun shone!

Would highly recommend. We loved it!

Location

From the Owner

The cottages are situated in one of the most amazing locations. They are in South Wales, 1 mile from St Davids, the smallest city in Wales, which has a beautiful cathedral and an assortment of restaurants, cafes and craft shops. However, the highlight of the location is that the cottages sit high on a hill looking directly over the Irish sea and across to Ramsey Island. The whole area, which includes the Pembrokeshire Coastal path - 180 miles - is a national park and therefore pristine. Whitesands Beach, beautiful in it's own right but also delightful for families with it's many rock pools, is also a haven for surfers and swimmers. The coast is home to many seals and the nearby Ramsey Sound hosts porpoise and an abundance of sea life.

Facilities

From the Owner

The cottages are only a 5 minute walk from Whitesands Beach and the coastal path and only a 15 minute walk to an isolated beach inaccessible by car. The views from the coastal path are incredible, whichever direction you walk in. The cottages have a variety of maps and guide books to help you find your way around. We do take dogs on request and the surrounding area is ideal for them. When guests have discovered Lower Porthmawr and The Roost, they return time and time again. Try it for yourself and you will see why.
