About the property

House in Newport Town, Pembrokeshire, Wales - 5 Minutes From Coastal Path. 10 Minutes Drive From Beach. Enclosed Garden And Off Street Parking

Recently built in a traditional style with coloured rendered walls, a slate roof and oak floors and doors, 'Puffins' also has all the comfortable mod-cons that you would expect from an up-market holiday house. The house is decorated in a smart, contemporary fashion and features include underfloor-heating, a wood burning stove and a wet-room. It is located in the centre of town within easy walking distance of the town’s shops, cafes and restaurants. It also has the benefit of a safe, enclosed garden and off-street parking - quite a rarity in Newport!

The house has three double bedrooms, two bathrooms and a large open-plan living/dining/kitchen. Outside the pebbly, beach-style garden has garden tables and chairs, a summerhouse and a gas BBQ.

About Rebecca Hunter

My name is Rebecca and I live in Pembrokeshire with my partner Peter and dogs Quail and Puffin.

Rebecca Hunter purchased this house in 2012

Why Rebecca Hunter chose Newport

I started building the house in January 2013 and it was finished in June 2014. It took a while but finally it's finished and I am very pleased with the result!

Since it is in the centre of Newport the house has all the convenience of being able to walk pretty much anywhere; along to the shops, down to the river, over to the Parrog, and it is just a stone's throw from several fantastic restaurants!

What makes this house unique

The house is traditionally built but has a very contemporary, modern interior. It is light, airy and spacious for summer living but with underfloor heating and a wood burner would be very cosy for a winter stay.

My partner and I have stayed in a lot of holiday houses over the years, both here in the UK and abroad. We like to think that we have learned what people need and want from a their holiday accommodation and how this can really make or break their holiday.

Since we have actually built this house ourselves we have really been able to design/decorate/equip from scratch and feel it really works!

Guestbook comments from the manager

'We couldn't have asked more more whilst staying in your delightful cottage! A home from home experience, everything was catered for!'

'…superbly stocked kitchen, lovely garden, and bodyboards for the children to use at the beach. This is definitely the best holiday home we have stayed in!'

'A really relaxing and charming place to come back to at the end of the day… a chilled glass of wine and BBQ in the garden - perfect all round!'

Puffins was really a beautiful place to stay, I highly recommend it.

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of four ladies of mixed ages, staying for 3 nights. The house is fresh and new looking and delightfully fitted out with new furniture and interesting and tasteful household items. Rachel clearly has an eye for colour and design! The house is well-equipped and warm and there is a lovely pebbled garden with a cute summer house. The location was ideal for us being close to the shops but only a ten minute walk from the estuary where we spotted various interesting birds. Rachel is easy to contact and very helpful. Thank you for a great stay!

A perfect cottage in an ideal place!

  • 5 of 5

We had an excellent holiday in Puffins. The cottage is beautifully decorated and was ideally situated for us. My daughter was so pleased with all the children’s things which made life so easy for her, high chair, travel cot and even baby spoons and bowls! We had lots of great walks with the family and we had amazing weather which of course made all the difference.

This was our first time at "Puffins" and we found it to be comfortable, well-equipped and in a convenient, easy-to-find location. Each evening we alternated between eating out (either in the restaurant next door, the Golden Lion , or a short walk down the road to "the Canteen" ) and self catering at the cottage.

In the area there's loads to see in the National Park or along the coastal path. We were lucky enough to twice see dolphins and also spotted an otter in the river near Cardigan.

Well equipped, pretty house, located centrally

  • 4 of 5

Great stay in a beautiful part of Wales! Lovely house with sheltered garden, conveniently situated to walk to local shops, pubs and restaurants. Short drive to good beach with shop/cafe and lifeguards. Pretty colourful decor, quality furnishings, very well equipped kitchen. Deckchairs, picnic set and bat and balls provided too! The only downside for a tall family were the low sloping ceilings in the upstairs rooms. The property was well main maintained, the owner was helpful over email and available by phone if required, useful house manuals were provided. Next door to the Golden Lion pub/restaurant which serves good quality food but it was noisy on Friday and Saturdays at closing time. We would definitely recommend the house to friends with the caveats noted above.

The house is situated next to a lane that goes down to the estuary and the famous Pembrokeshire Coastal Path. A ten minute walk along this path will take you to The Parrog, Newport's old harbour. The beautiful Newport Sands are a 10 minute car journey away.

Further Details:

For a small town, Newport has a wealth of shops, restaurants and facilities. These include: Bank, Post Office, Chemist, Supermarket, Art galleries, craft shops, lovely cafes and a Monday morning street market.

Excellent restaurants include; The Golden Lion, Llys Meddyg, and Cnapan. These restaurants are very popular and booking is recommended especially at weekends during the summer.
