Cliff Top Cottages With Superb Views Towards St David's Head And Strumble Head - Tal y Gaer Cottage Sleeps 4 (2 Bedrooms)



Updated: 07-Mar-2016
Cottages in Pwllderi near Strumble Head, Nr. Fishguard, Pembrokeshire Coast, Wales - Peaceful, Idyllic, Rural Location, A Minute Walk To The Coast Path And Two Miles From Abermawr Beach

Few holiday cottages are as splendidly situated as these with fabulous views across the sea to St David's Head and Strumble Head. Situated on a small holding, the home of the Garn Deri pedigree Welsh Black Cattle. The sunsets are stunning at any time of the year and you may well see Wicklow mountains in the distance. The wonderful rugged isolation of the coast path is just a short walk away. This is an excellent location for bird-watchers and observing seals, porpoise and wildlife in general. The sunsets enjoyed from the cottages are breathtaking. The cottages are fabulous in summer but also make an excellent cosy choice for a winter break with the wood-burning stoves and the traditional thick cottage walls.
