  • "We had a lovely holiday at Gwelfor."

    The weather was atrocious so the house was perfect to escape wind and rain, being comfortable, cosy yet spacious and very well equipped for our party of 6 adults and 3 children.

  • "The property was comfortable, warm and really well placed to explore Newport."

    The kitchen was really well equipped for our large group at Christmas. The sofa area in the kitchen part was a little bit of a squeeze for 10 of us but then it was good to have the separate sitting room which again, was a bit of a squeeze but we made it work. Fantastic walks in the area and Newport is really charming.

  • "The only thing that is stopping me from giving 5 stars in all areas is the recycling."

    We didn't have red and blue bag to recycle cardboard and plastic so we took our recycling home. I think there should be bags available so others can recycle at this property otherwise there is a lot going to landfill unnecessarily. Great property in a beautiful place. My mum may be making a booking for March 2024

  • "There should be better instructions over the outside lighting as there is only a very small label on the switch near the front door, which we never used as the key safe is near the back door."

    Due to the outside lights not being on,one of our party fell on a very uneven patch of tarmac and sprained / possibly fractured his ankle, leaving him in an ankle brace for the last two days of our holiday. A simple note in the information pack would have informed us about the outside light switch but the ridge of tarmac and dip next to it needs fixing. Otherwise a lovely house.

  • "Fantastic, beautiful, comfortable and well equipped property to stay for a week!"

    Great views across to Newport sands. Lovely touch from the joint owner to email with further information regarding our stay. Only minor fault we found were the keys to get through the back gate and into the kitchen were extremely fiddly to open. However would recommend Gwelfor to anyone and would definitely come back.

  • "Lovely house, good facilities, enjoyed being able to sit out front and back."

    Excellent BBQ. Well situated, easy access to both sea and village. Let down by standard of cleanliness. We had to wash some cutlery and plates before using and several pots and pans had been left greasy. Side tables not dusted in all the rooms and several cobwebs dangling. Bathrooms would benefit from hooks to hang dressing gowns, towels etc. We also reported leaks from a toilet and toilet seat not properly fixed. No feedback until we asked whether anything would be done and was informed that a plumber had been twice before and not found anything. Obviously a known problem that needs to be dealt with. Driveway needs a top surface due to raised “ironwork” which made it slightly awkward with three cars.

  • "Christmas 23rd - 28th Dec."

    It was by far one off our best family Christmas together, the house was perfect for our family off 15... 9 adults, 5 children & 1 baby. We could walk to the beach in 10 mins, also lovely friendly pubs with 5 mins walk... I think we visited them all over the 5 days. Loved pembrokshire, we will return one day to make more special memories. Gwelfor cottage has everything you would need for a family holiday.

    Only little thing that I felt was unnecessary was the request to strip the beds.

  • "Loverly house, two minute walk into the town and an ideal base for coastal walks."

    Plenty of room and good amenities, perhaps could add a coffee machine and possibly a welcome pack, however there is a Spar shop in town and a market once a week with excellent stalls. Good choice locally of pubs and restaurants, we ate out most nights and didn’t have a bad meal.

    We will certainly be returning.

  • "‘Gwelfor’ is excellent in every way."

    Incredibly comfortable and practical for the family. Situated just a few minutes from the main town, restaurants and bars with the sea a 5 min walk away, it’s a joy !

  • "Excellent property in a great coastal location."

    Splendid garden and patio if the weather is fine and lots of room for dining and socialising indoors. Newport has pubs that serve very good food and shops that are sufficient to resupply without driving to bigger towns. Would thoroughly recommend!

    We are a big family group and found plenty of space in your lovely house. It was clean and comfortable and we quickly made it our home! Only regret is that we didnt book for 2 weeks.

  • "Beautiful spacious house, we had 10 adults and one 6 yr old in our party."

    Never feels crowded, so much room. Lovely decor all round. Everything you need in the kitchen. The sea views are amazing!. Some slight niggles, main one being wobbly dining chairs. Have left message about this and a couple of small things. Recycling was a bit of a nightmare. What goes where..... Excellent location, walk to the beach and local shops. These appear to open on Wednesday onwards. Maybe a seasonal thing. Lovely little shops with everything from organic food store to antiques! Worth a short walk. Good food served in the local pubs. Very friendly people around here. You will love it here. This is the first rental we have had that didn't leave a welcome pack. We had a very long drive, and had to wait for food shop delivery for milk and tea etc. Just a small thing that makes a difference. Overall, a fantastic place to stay! Thank you!

  • "Lovely accommodation and comfortable for the whole family."

    Really enjoyed our stay. Despite us following every guideline, the recycle waste was not picked up on Tuesday morning. It was placed correctly and properly categorised. According to a neighbour I spoke to, this has been a problem for the property. I reported this to the local letting office in town, who also gave me some bags to put the bed linen in before departure, as we could only find one. A lovely stay and would definitely recommend the property to others

The property

Gwelfor is a stylish, three-storey, six bedroom house in the popular seaside town of Newport.

It is just a short walk to the centre of Newport, with its excellent choice of eateries, small shops, galleries and pubs. A five minute walk leads you to Parrog beach, a favourite with children, boating enthusiasts and those with time to enjoy the glorious views.

The Pembrokeshire Coast Path can also be joined here. Across the Nevern estuary is Newport Sands, which can be reached, with care, by wading across at low tide, or by a longer walk via the iron bridge. For fabulous views, take a walk up Carningli (Mount of Angels) behind Newport.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £500.
