Great Cottage in a beautiful area

  • 5 of 5

We had an excellent stay at Ty Cerrig. All the Family (our dog included) enjoyed a lot that place. The Cottage is cosy and well maintained, the patio and the outdoor area have been our favorite places to relax and eat. The large garden a marvellous playground for the children and our dog.

Furthermore, we took advantage of all the facilities and available equipment, such as the BBQ and the beach stuff, to spend some very good time.

St. Davids' with its shops and the nice Cathedral is only 1 mile away. Whitesands Beach is 2 miles away.

If you want, you can even walk to these places directly from the Cottage (or run, as I loved to do in the morning).

Info to and from the Owner very good and precise. We had a punctual and friendly support from the concierge.

The surroundings are beautiful, with stunning views and the right balance between wilderness and services, you need to travel with the Family.

Very satisfied of choosing Pembrokshire for my first journey to Wales.

When possible, we would like to come back to Ty Cerrig in the future.

Great place!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic 7 nights stay at Ty Cerrig. The house is very well equipped and we enjoyed staying in an authentic stone cottage without any sacrifice in comforts. The attention to details is amazing, and we felt welcome right from the start. Furthermore it was a pleasure to correspond with the owners, with any queries answered quickly. The beds are really comfortable, and we all remarked on how well we'd slept during the stay. Some of us are foodies and we enjoyed cooking the fresh local produce and enjoying them around the table in the spacious conservatory. The cottage itself is only 5 minutes by car outside St. Davids and has the right combination of privacy, tranquility and convenience. There is so much to do around St Davies and Pembrokeshire. Highlights of our trip include seeing the puffins on Skomer island, doing part of the Pembrokeshire costal trail, fishing for mackerel in the sea, and going to the concerts at the Fishguard Music Festival. We also enjoyed just relaxing in the house on rainy days, and going for evening walks around the house. Would definitely return again. Highly recommended.

Beautiful airy cottage in the heart of some wonder

  • 5 of 5

Light, airy spacious and very well equipped. Plenty of space in the garden for games and a great big conservatory to relax in after a long walk - actually we spent most of our time in there having our meals and watching the sky change. Lovely place to be and highly recommended. Colin

Ty Cerrig a great cottage in an excellent location

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely cottage and an excellent location! The facilities in the cottage are excellent and the children loved playing with the games in the garden. Enjoyed getting lost walking the dog on Dowrog Common and trying to avoid getting a 'booter'. Body boarding at Whitesands was great fun and a new experience for the family. Had some memorable days out including a coastal walk between St. Justinians (got the excellent bus service there) and back to St. Davids via Porth Clais. Also enjoyed a bike ride from the house to Trefin and Abercastle on route 4. Very lucky with the weather this week. Always glorious sunshine everyday. Just one day on our return bike ride from Abercastle were we caught out in the rain. Eating out was excellent at the Sloop Inn at Porthgain. Also loved the take away fish and chips in St Davids. Also had a nice meal at the Cambrian Inn in Solva. The real highlight of our holiday was the one hour RHIB Adventure boat trip with Thousand Island expeditions. This exciting and informative boat trip was very good value and would thoroughly recommend it. Seeing Porpoise ( we were very lucky too see ) , seals and all the interesting seabirds was something we will always remember. So interesting to learn about the Seabirds such as Kiitiwake, razor bills, Guillemots and Gannets.

Great cottage in excellent location

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of two adults and two school-age children. We stayed over Easter 2015 and had a really brilliant time and would love to go back again. The cottage has been superbly modernised and has a mix of the traditional cottage at the front which opens out into a huge, modern conservatory on the back which faces south-east and fills the house with light. Everything is well maintained and works well and the house is very spacious, comfortable and welcoming. The kitchen and bathroom are modern and well equipped and the shower is really powerful - great if you have been in the sea. The back of the house gets really warm from the conservatory, but in early April we used the woodburner in the lounge in the evenings, which was cosy. There is a large, sheltered private patio at the back which would be great for barbeques in the summer and a large garden and gated, off-road parking, easily for two cars. The location is excellent. St. Davids is less than 10 minutes away on a bike, and there are miles of quiet lanes around for cycling. The coast is, of course, stunning and the cottage is well positioned for exploring the coast, which can easily be accessed by bike. Whitesands Bay is only a few minutes by car and other well known places such as Porthgain, and miles and miles of superb walking are all close by. Highly recommended and definitely worth the journey.

Great Holiday Cottage

  • 5 of 5

What a great holiday! Beach, coastal path, St Davids, all easy walking / cycling distance. We've done lots of exploring; watching sunsets with a pint of beer or flask of coffee on the beach. Such a lovely stone cottage but with all the warm light that makes Ty Cerrig extra special. Cosy, spacious and uncluttered and equipped brilliantly. A home by the sea. Till next time.......Andy and Annie

From the Owner

David fell in love with this part of Pembrokeshire about 30 years ago and visited regularly - camping at first and then renting holiday homes. Eventually he was lucky enough to be able to buy this lovely old cottage and renovate it. Both he and Ruth love the access to nature, to good cycling, fabulous walks and the fine places in eat in St Davids, Porthgain and Solva.

Activity and Interests

Car: recommended


Whitesands is the closest beach, just over 2 miles away and approx 5 minutes drive or a walk across country. Abereiddy beach and the amazing the Blue Lagon are 3 miles away, with free parking. Caerfai bay is through St Davids, and is about 10 minutes by car.

The Pembrokeshire coastal path is 1 mile (by foot)


There is a very good local bus service during the summer months to St Davids, Haverfordwest, Fishguard and the local beaches. A car is recommended. Cycling in the area is very good - the house is 500 metres from Sustrans route 4 which goes from from St David's to Fishguard and takes in some spectacular scenery on a quiet road.


St Davids, Britains smallest cathedral city is just over a mile away in one direction and Fishguard 11 miles in the other. The villages with great eateries of Solva and Porthgain are 15 minutes away. The well known Blue Lagoon, with its coasteering is only 5 minutes drive away.

From the Owner

The cottage is superb for families, with its extensive flat garden, patio and large conservatory. The property is spacious and open we also have a large dry shed for storage of bikes, outdoor equipment and wetsuits and a car can be reversed right up to this for easy unloading. The area is full of things to do - adventures to the islands of Ramsay, Skomer (with its puffins), Skokhom and Grassholme (second largest gannet colony in the world). The Blue Lagoon and Whitesands are close and a Sustrans bike route is only 1/4 of a mile away. Behind the house is the remarkable and little known nature reserve of Dowrog Common - home to orchids, owls and marsh harriers. In the autumn there are beaches a short walk away littered with baby and female seals.
