  • "We had a really lovely holiday in Pembrokeshire and Ty Gwyn was a fantastic base for us: three adults, two dogs and a teenager."

    The main draw for us before booking was the large, enclosed garden and stand alone location of the house for the dogs. It proved an excellent choice in this regard and we all enjoyed paddling in a little brook alongside the garden (esp in the heatwave). The cottage is charming if a little small. The advertised images makes it look a lot bigger! Whilst very comfortable, the small cottage style windows make the dining room dark but fortunately, we spent most days eating outside as the weather was great. On the kitchen front, it’s perfectly workable and well equipped, our only recommendation (as we cooked in every day) would be the supply of some decent knives. Overall, the cottage was very clean on arrival, the fixtures and fittings of quality and the two double beds super comfortable. If I were to visit the area again, I’d definitely be happy to return to Ty Gwyn.

  • "A lovely cottage, very homely."

    The garden is so peaceful and our dog absolutely loved it. Would highly recommend for a week of peace and tranquility. Lots of stunning places to visit within easy reach. First time to this area and would return.

    Thank you for your kind comments we are very glad you enjoyed your visit. Gerry & Jacqui Property Owner

  • "Just back from a week stay at Ty Gwyn."

    The cottage is beautiful, clean and well equipped, it makes a great base for exploring the area. The garden is gorgeous, our dog loved having a good run around and paddle in the stream. The garden is mostly enclosed but he managed to find an escape route via one of two drainage pipes which he went through onto the road at the front, luckily the road is very quiet and no damage was done, if the pipes could be covered with some chicken wire it would be completely enclosed. We spent the days exploring the beach around the area, I can recommend Newport & Cardigan Poppit beaches where you can walk for miles. Hopefully we’ll be returning next year

    Thank you for your comments and glad you enjoyed yourselves and that your dog is safe. Putting wire across the pipes can mean they get blocked when water is flowing but we will have a look at alternatives. Thanks again and we are really pleased that your are thinking of returning.

  • "Lovely cosy cottage, beautifully presented & really clean."

    Our dogs loved playing in the large garden. Great location for walkers & walking distance to the coastal path. Quite remote but we didn’t mind that, narrow roads, often single track with passing spaces which may not suit everyone. We loved our stay in such a spectacular area.

    Thank you very much we are really pleased you enjoyed your stay. Gerry & Jacqui Property Owner

  • "Ty Gwyn is a beautiful cottage in a beautiful location."

    The cottage was clean, cosy and comfortable, and the flowers on the mantle piece were a lovely touch (tulips are my favourite)! A lady popped by to check on us on the first night which was really thoughtful (apologies if I seemed a little fraught, when I heard the front door I panicked a little thinking my dog may have escaped, he’s a bit of a ‘Houdini’!) which takes me on to the wonderful garden, it is just fantastic. So much space and beautiful. I was able to let my dog run free and he loved it. I did keep a training line on him just incase, as although it’s enclosed and safe, as mentioned above I have an accomplished escape artist, and a beagle in the countryside may always find a way! We enjoyed sitting outside in the evenings and watching for birds & foxes, and just enjoying the peace, with nothing but the sounds of the wildlife and the brook. It’s only a short drive to local amenities too so you are able to stock up for your stay. There is a folder of local walks in the cottage which was such a great thing to find. The beds were comfy and cottage itself perfect. Unfortunately due to work commitments we had to leave early in a bit of a rush, and I missed Ty Gwyn almost immediately. We’re hoping to book again as the whole family fell in love with Wales & this little cottage.

    Hi Danielle Thank you very much for your kind feedback on your stay at Ty Gwyn. We are really glad you enjoyed your visit and you summed up why we ( and Sali our spaniel ) love going there. It’s a shame you had to leave early but it is good that you are thinking of coming back to Wales. Thank you again/diolch yn fawr! Gerry & Jacqui. Property Owner

  • "We had a lovely stay in Ty Gwyn."

    The cottage is very well equipped with a lovely garden and outdoor facilities. The bedroom was very cosy and comfortable. I was a bit chilly downstairs at times but popping the heating on for an extra hour soon warmed the room up. The open fire was nice to have but a bit smoky. The surrounding area had so many stunning walks. Would definitely stay again.

    Loving the new bathroom and kitchen, so nice to see improvements being done. This is a great place to kick back and relax. Great base for exploring the surrounding area and great beaches where you can spot plenty of seals in the water. Fab walks and a great garden for BBQ or just relaxing, our dogs love messing in the stream. Love it that much have already booked for next year and cannot wait to go back

  • "Pros: Lovely quiet, peaceful location."

    Nice to sit in the south facing garden for meals with just the wildlife and the sound of the babbling brook for company. Large, secure grassed area for our dog to enjoy. Modern kitchen and bathroom were excellent. Cons: Low doorways to living room, dining room and bedrooms. I have bruises on my bruises from the number of times I banged my head! Dining room and living room were also quite dark as they are both north facing with small windows. We had a very enjoyable week and would recommend this cottage as a base to explore this beautiful region of Wales. Just remember to take your hard hat if you’re over 6 feet tall.

    Amazing walks along the cliff tops.. There is space for your car but you do have to be careful when exiting and arriving as the cottage is on a bend. All in all a very nice and relaxing holiday.

    Fabulous setting close to the coastal path. All in all it was very idyllic. The cottage appears to have been updated recently with new kitchen and bathroom which were both lovely. We loved Ty Gwyn so much we have already booked to come back next year - can’t wait!

  • "There were a few issues with this cottage, some of which we have noted for the caretaker."

    The bedroom windows were extremely hard to open - possibly the wood had warped in the weather? The bath has some small bare patches where the white enamel has come off, and the use of hot and cold taps controlling the shower made it hard to achieve the right water temperature. Overall we would not choose to stay at Ty Gwyn again, though we loved its location and the area.

  • "We enjoyed our August stay at Ty Gwynn."

    The cottage is good if you are looking to explore the Pembrokeshire coast and it is just a short walk to join the long distance path. The cottage is well presented, with a traditional feel, retains its original sash windows to the front, and has a lovely large rear garden. Positives: Well presented and clean. Well preserved house with traditional feel, slate floor to dining room, but also cosy new carpets and modern comfortable sofa in the living room, nice selection of books. Upgraded outdoor seating and table in sunny spot perfect for summer outdoor evenings. Efficient central heating for colder nights too. Negatives: 1. One bathroom on the ground floor. Not a big issue, but was disappointed that there was no thermostatically controlled shower mixer. This would be beneficial to update as the temperature control was tricky and water flow fairly weak. Plenty of hot water, just needs a better delivery system. A creature comfort worth investing in for customer satisfaction. 2. The main double bed mattress springing was unfortunately quite worn out. I had back pain after a week of sleeping on it and would advise they replace this mattress. The second double bed's mattress (which presumably gets less wear) was much better, but our son had to sleep on this because the single bed frame was broken. To their absolute credit, the owner's housekeeper contacted us as soon as they were made made aware of this by the previous occupant. 3. Owners have recently had the exterior redecorated, which makes it very presentable. Unfortunately, the decorators had painted the sash window to the 2nd bedroom shut, which mean that room was stuffy for our son. Just needs some easing and adjusting to fix this, but a professional decorator should know better - it's a common trade problem. Overall: We did enjoy ourselves. The house and location have much to offer. Only let down by shower and mattress. Otherwise would give it a higher rating.

About the location

GOODWICK

Fishguard 2 miles; Newport 9 miles; St. Davids 15 miles.

Goodwick is a picturesque coastal village overlooking the bay where the twice daily ferries run to Ireland. With a variety of shops, cafes, pubs and a small supermarket, it offers everything you need. The twin town of Fishguard is only two miles away, where you will find more unique shops, a delicatessen, pubs, restaurants and the Last Invasion Tapestry, which is based on the famous Welsh ladies' victory over the French and has been compared to the Bayeux Tapestry. Located in such a great coastal position, the Pembrokeshire and Cardiganshire section of the world-famous Welsh coastal path is right on your doorstep, so enjoy the scenic walks, outstandingly beautiful beaches, the opportunity to watch dolphins and seals and so much more! From lazy, warm summer days to wild and windy winter days, the scenery is ever-changing and always remarkable. Historic castles, theme parks, art galleries, kayaking, coasteering and boat trips to the islands are all nearby and St. Davids, the smallest city in the UK, with its magnificent cathedral is a short drive away, while the coastal town of Newport, with its fantastic beach, is closer still. A perfect location all year round.

Note: Up to two well behaved dogs are welcome (additional charge applies) but restricted to downstairs hard floor areas only.
Note: Please bring own beach towels and cot linen.
Note: Second double bed only suitable for one guest as access from one side only.
