  • "The house is exactly as described and the pictures are exact."

    Everything worked well, furnishing are very comfortable and the whole house is very cosy. Its set in a very quiet area, with no street lights, so at night is very dark outside and quiet. The smart tv is a huge bonus for us, in the evenings and was fantastic. Alongside a lovely dishwasher and washing machine. Bed and couches are very comfortable and the shower is wonderfully powerful. The garden is beautifully set up and sunny for sitting out. House was a little hard to find at first, as the numbers are in an odd sequence. Its the 4th house along as you turn onto the road on the right for info, just pasted the small right turn. The location is close to Newport, which has a wonderful beach, visited many times. Plus great for eating out and few shops. The closest supermarket is the coop in fishguard, about 20 mins away, however, there is an Aldi and Tesco in Cardigan, about half hour. Its close also to St David's and Whitesands beach. The coastline is amazing in any direction from Dinas Cross, albeit located at the top of Pembrokeshire, we found anywhere easily accessible by car, therefore visited many areas. The only one small issue is the bins, there are none! Instructions on what to do with the rubbish was a bit rubbish! The owner needs to be clearer re recycling and where to put black bags. The kitchen has an excellent bin, with a recyclable compartment however, what happens from emptying the bin is anyone's guess with no bins, other than a food bin. Other than one very small easily overcome quibble I'd highly recommend anyone to stay here and indeed we definitely.

  • "As a family of 4 I booked this property as it was close to our in-laws, who had booked a holiday home in the same village."

    The property was lovely, it was just like home from home. It had everything you needed for comfort and convenience. The owner even put milk in the fridge and left a lovely welcome pack which was much appreciated after a 9 hour car journey! The cul-de-sac was nice and quiet and only a short walk away was two pubs and a chippy which also catered for GF people. The local garage shop sold delicious fresh bread and cakes. There are two beaches both about a 15 minute walk away with a path way between the two which is again about a 15 minute walk. Just be aware that which ever way you walk to the beaches there is a hill to climb back up. We walked around Dinas Head which had amazing views but quiet a steep (but do-able) climb to the top. We had some lovely days out including a look around St David’s cathedral, Newgale beach which was great for the kids to body board, and for any Harry Potter fans Dobby’s Grave at Freshwater West is worth a drive too and a beautiful beach. I’d definitely recommend this property!

  • "The property was lovely and exactly as described."

    There was even an unexpected welcome basket of goodies on arrival which was greatly appreciated. Fantastic location to explore lots of places in Wales. Would highly recommend and was a very safe property for our 4 year old too, the selection of books were also a great choice for bedtime stories. Thanks for helping us have such a fantastic family holiday

The property

Perched on the outskirts of Dinas Cross in Pembrokeshire, is this lovely semi-detached house, Cysgod Y Mor in Dinas Cross.

Enjoying a fabulous location along the Pembrokeshire Coast with easy access to a wealth of beautiful beaches, and the stunning surroundings of the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park, Cysgod Y Mor is a superb dwelling for couples or a family of four.

Leave your vehicle in one of two off-road parking spaces, before making your way towards your new holiday home.

Look forward to impressing your loved ones with tasty meals prepared in the well-equipped kitchen/diner, featuring a handy dishwasher, and washing machine, ready to enjoy at the dining table over a celebratory bottle of fizz.

If the weather is nice, why not dine alfresco out in the enclosed rear garden where you can catch the last of the day’s rays?

After dinner, relax on the plush sofas as you enjoy a much-loved film on the Smart TV or Netflix as the evening’s entertainment.

Climb the stairs up to the first floor, where you can indulge in a soothing soak in the bath or wash off sandy toes after a day at the beach under the overhead shower.

When sleep calls, choose from one of two well-appointed bedrooms, a double and bunk room, both with plenty of storage for your belongings.

Wander into the village, where you can treat your loved ones to a well-deserved meal at the Ship Aground or the Masons Arms - both serve hearty pub fayre and local ales, great for when you want to take a break from cooking.

You can also pick up any last-minute necessities in the village's convenience shop.

For a fun-filled day head down on foot to Pwllgwaelod Beach, where you can bathe on the sands or paddle the shores.

Then take the Coast Path around Dinas Head to the stunning beach at Cwm-Yr-Eglwys before walking back to your home base!

There is also the idyllic valley path for when you fancy a leisurely stroll with stunning views out towards Fishguard Harbour.

The nearby Preseli Hills Mountain are a great place to go hiking for those seeking a more challenging walk with outstanding views of Cardigan Bay from atop Carn Ingli.

Visit Newport, where you'll find a variety of wildlife-filled trails, as well as the sand and surf at Newport Beach.

For those seeking a piece of history, be sure to visit the postcard picture perfect 5500 year old Neolithic Pentre Ifan Burial Chamber before a visit to the fascinating site of Castell Henllys Iron Age Village.

Continue into Fishguard, where you can learn about Welsh heroine Jemima Nicholas and her trusted pitchfork against the Napoleonic French in 1797, by visiting the Last Invasion Tapestry in the Town Hall and take in the beauty of Lower Town, the location for Hollwyood epics such as Gregory Peck's Moby Dick and Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton in Dylan Thomas' Under Milk Wood.

Stretch your legs further with a visit to the UKs smallest city and the incredible sight of Wales' Patron Saint's cathedral in St Davids!

All this and more awaits with a stay at Cysgod Y Mor.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £150.
