    A beautiful and well equipped cottage in a perfect location for exploring the local area, we had such an a amazing holiday and the additional information supplied by the owners about the area helped us plan and make the most of our stay, we will be recommending to others and hope to book again next year

  • "This is a wonderful little cottage in the well located village for exploring Pembrokeshire."

    We walked so much of the coast line, relaxed in the hot tub, saw so much wildlife and just had the best time. A great place for really getting away from it all. There's a small pub in the village that now does basic meals (pizza and a meat/veggie other meal as a special each day) and Porthgain is a really lovely 40 minute walk down the coast for food/drink too. Can't recommend it enough.

  • "This was our second stay at Bwthyn Alarch and we’d definitely be keen to return again in the future."

    Fantastic location, had everything we needed and owners have clearly invested in making improvements to the property with new sofas and shower this year and the kitchen equipment was also improved. It had all that we needed to have a perfect holiday in Pembrokeshire.

    We're delighted that you enjoyed your stay at the cottage agin this year. Thank you very much for providing us with such positive feed back regarding the refurbishment. Property Owner

    Only used hot tub once it had no chemicals and was quiet scummy bit disappointed. People & area lovely

  • "Ideally located to explore the coast."

    Warm and cosy. Hot tub would be better described as a 'warm' tub - temperature fixed to 36 degrees, temperature control made inoperable by the owner.

    Trefelin in easy reach of main towns. Cottage had everything you could possible need for a cracking good holiday!

  • "The cottage is in a lovely little spot right by the the pembrokeshire coast."

    Trefin is a gorgeous quiet village but with a pub and a cafe and a shop a close drive away it has everything you need. Our hosts were great and available at the drop of a hat for anything we needed.

  • "When we first entered the property it looked welcoming, however the cleaning of the light switches, table tops, cutlery, plates, bathroom, windows showed a lack of cleaning."

    I cleaned the areas we would use. Also, there are many dead spiders in the webs- previously mentioned in comments book; finger marks and general greasiness on furniture- which shows no cleaning especially in covid times. Therefore we won't be using the hot-tub as we are unsure if it safe to do so. Cottage is very tired, needing work done, and we are not comfortable staying here.

  • "What really let this cottage down was the hot tub, it really was only a lukewarm tub, the temperature was set at 34 degrees, with the weather being unseasonal during our stay once the lid was off the temperature In the tub wasn’t anything near ‘hot’."

    The owners had covered the settings and the only buttons you could press were for bubbles and lights! Also the heating was on timer with notices not allowing you to touch the boiler, during the day with the stone flooring and no sunlight in the kitchen and master bedroom it was very chilly. The kitchen was very well equipped and shower very hot. Good location for coastal walks.

  • "We arrived after a 6 hour journey to find there was no welcome pack , and no directions to the nearest shop obviously displayed in the kitchen."

    So no cup of tea before we had to go out. The duvet covers were thin, old and lumpy( I was was wishing I had brought my own. ) The heating was on timed , even though day time temperatures didn’t get much above 10 degrees. When I rang up the person was very helpful,and said he would change it, but this not what you want to have to sort when away. The cottage was well equipped and very clean. It would not take much to bring it up to an acceptable standard.

  • "The cottage was great."

    We had a great time and found the whole experience of renting the cottage easy and very comfortable. The communication with the owners was brilliant and made us feel relaxed about staying in the cottage. It was a great place to explore the west coast of Wales from and can recommend it to anyone looking to stay there.

The property

Just a short drive from St Davids, Britain's smallest city and a few minutes’ walk from the Pembrokeshire Coast Path, this pretty stone cottage has a private hot tub and is perfect for a couple or a small family.

If you like beaches and harbours you will be spoilt for choice with Porthgain, the Blue Lagoon, Traethllyfn (National Trust beach), Abereiddy, St Davids and Whitesands to choose from. At the end of the day there is a friendly local The Ship Inn which serves pub meals and if you prefer to dine out in the morning The Mill cafe serves delicious home cooked breakfasts. The coastal bus passes through the village and gives guests the chance to walk a different section of the Pembrokeshire Coast Path each day.

Well worth a visit are the offshore bird islands of Ramsey, Skomer where you can see Puffins and Shearwaters in season.

About the location


Fishguard 15.5 miles; Pembroke 28.7 miles.

The city of St Davids is situated on the far south west coast of Wales. Granted city status by Queen Elizabeth II, it is the smallest city in the UK, with its magnificent cathedral dating back to the 12th century and the ruins of the Bishop's Palace, both wonderful buildings to explore. Situated within the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park, St Davids is a delightful place with an array of unique shops, tea rooms, restaurants and pubs, surrounded by spectacular coastal scenery. Nearby Whitesands Bay is one of the many beautiful beaches in the area, and walkers will delight in the spectacular views from the coastal path which runs around the complete coastline of Pembrokeshire. Local buses will help with your walking plans, so that you can walk several stretches of the path with totally different landscapes and views each day. Dolphin spotting from land or from the many boat trips to local islands are a must, and are also perfect for enjoying the wonderful array of birds in their natural habitat. St Davids is the perfect holiday destination, whether you are looking for a quiet relaxing break, wonderful walking, a round of golf, an exploration of magnificent castles or fun-filled days at Oakwood Theme Park, farm parks and much more.
