  • "Minafon was a fantastic cottage in an exceptional location ."

    We loved the direct access to the nature reserve which was literally at the bottom of the garden through the gate, as were wonderful walks along the coastal path. It was a real bonus to be able to walk to fantastic coves or into the village straight from the house. Newport itself was delightful, with good pubs and independent shops. The house was extremely well equipped, spacious and beautifully appointed, and the warm welcome and wealth of goodies left by Jo was greatly appreciated. I would recommend this house to anyone wanting a peaceful holiday in a wonderful setting. We will certainly return.

    The cottage had everything you wanted for a holiday & more. Lovely extras left by the owner including a delicious cake. For my husband the added bonus was the wildlife conservation area for birds which was at the bottom of the garden ! You won’t be disappointed by booking this cottage.

The property

Perched in Newport, Pembrokeshire, and situated alongside the famous Pembrokeshire Coast Path, is the delightful stone-fronted cottage, Minafon.

Set over two-storeys and sleeping up to eight guests, Minafon is the ideal retreat for a family looking to soak up the sea air and escape everyday life.

As you approach the property, you will find two convenient off-road parking spaces situated just outside of the property, before following the stone steps down towards the cottage and entering the hallway to discard any coats and shoes after your journey.

Cosy up in the ample sitting room where you can enjoy a film with the family surrounded by the beautiful exposed beams and exposed stonework, providing a rustic and homely feel to the cottage.

Create culinary delights in the spacious kitchen/diner, which has everything you could need during your stay, before settling down around the dining table to toast to the wonderful adventures to come.

Guests have the option to retire to one of four bedrooms, the first being a ground-floor double with zip/link, ensuring flexible sleeping options for all parties, along with a shower room on this floor with a handy washer/dryer.

Climbing up the oak staircase, guests will discover the additional three bedrooms, a generous king-size with a balcony providing excellent views of the garden as well as an en-suite shower-room for guests to prepare for the day in complete privacy; there is also a second double room with plenty of storage for your belongings and a twin room with a conservation skylight, bathing the room in natural light.

Prepare a tasty picnic to enjoy on the vast lawn area or at the lovely picnic table or enjoy a morning coffee on the swing seat before venturing onto the coast path to explore.

Residing in the idyllic setting of Pembrokeshire, alongside the River Nevern, is the tourist favourite of Newport, with many visitors choosing its coastal setting for its expansive views, seaside walks, and delightful selection of independent shops, pubs and restaurants.

Walk to Parrog and Newport Sands.

For those who love their tennis, bring your rackets and balls with you or if a round of golf is more your thing, bring your your clubs and make sure to visit the golf course which provides players with beautiful sea views.

Newport is a walker’s haven with it being situated on the Pembrokeshire Coast Path, where you can expect magnificent panoramic views and may even spot a dolphin or seal on your travels.

For those seeking something a little different on their trip and an easy drive away, is St Davids and its cathedral, the smallest city in Britain.

If you can tear yourself away, the town of Fishguard is only a short drive away and is home to the old harbour of Lower Town, a splendid setting for strolls and lunches.

Those who are looking to get out onto the water will not be disappointed, as there is ample opportunity to kayak on the calm waters of the bay.

Minafon is a beautiful setting for your next adventure to west Wales.
