About the property

Cottage in Preseli Hills, Pembrokeshire Coast National Park, Wales - Secluded Private And Quiet With Full Access To The Six-Acre Garden The Perfect Retreat

Set under the Preseli Hills, Y Bwthyn is a beautifully converted old stone and slate-roofed barn situated well off the road in a tranquil countryside setting. Numerous tiny windows frame glimpses of the garden in which it is set – a garden which is so lovely it has been featured in magazines and on television. Inside, there is a wood burning stove and a counter-weighted stair to access the sleeping loft, and the cottage is filled with books and paintings. There isn’t a television so you can enjoy a few days being blissfully disconnected from the stresses and strains of the rest of the world. National Geographic has named Pembrokeshire the second best coastline in the world and it is not hard to see why. All around you wildlife, historic monuments, standing stones and cliff-top walks abound. Quiet and comfortable, this cottage is nothing short of idyllic.

Please check Linens and Woodstove sections under Facilities tab above.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Kat & Michael

“A magical place!! We don’t want to leave. Thank you so much for letting us share your beautiful cottage and stunning gardens. We will be back in the Summer to experience it all over again.”

Mathew Owen, London.

“We found Bwthyn to be the perfect place to get away from it all. From the cosy wood burning stove to the amazing garden, the cottage is a wonderful welcoming oasis set against the jaw-dropping Pembrokeshire landscape. For us, it was the little touches that made the difference. The beautiful Welsh tweed blankets, the well equipped kitchen, and the interesting artwork and books gave the cottage a homely feel. We will definitely be returning to Bwthyn in the near future.”

Vaughan & Polly

“A beautiful cottage in beautiful gardens. And it was so nice to see the stars for once! It was exactly what we needed, a perfect break. See you again!”

The perfect place for a relaxing holiday

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in the lovely cottage within a beautiful garden. The cottage is very cosy and had everything we needed. Exploring the garden at our leisure was a joy and the peaceful break was just what we we hoping for. The hospitality and facilities were even better than expected. The location is also a great base to explore the fantastic Pembrokeshire coast. We are already planning another visit. Thanks to Christina, David and all the garden helpers for making our stay memorable.
