  • "Great location, extremely helpful owner, very comfortable enjoyable stay will certainly come back again."

  • "A truly magnificent spot, the views are what clearly makes this place as well as Anne & spot the dog who are always on hand to offer help & advice but at the same time leave you to get on with it without interruption."

    We experienced a problem with the external door & could not open it so had to use the french doors to get in & out. Reported it to Anne & a locksmith came to fix it the following day, no hassle!.. The cottage is in need of upgrade & some TLC in our opinion but non the less, it’s a comfortable cosy small cottage that had everything we needed. One gripe though - the shower was not hot enough & lacked power flow but that’s just us!.. It certainly wouldn’t deter me booking here again in the future.

  • "The location is beautiful and could not be faulted."

    Anne (the owner) was very welcoming, helpful and approachable, but gave you privacy and space. Some of the kitchen cupboards, shower and garden furniture could do with a bit of an upgrade, but other than that we had a great stay and would definitely go back.

  • "Lovely warm cosy cottage with spectacular sea views."

    The front of the house and window frames could be painted to give first impressions the wow factor . And to be able to have comfortable garden furniture and sun loungers

  • "Customers should be prepared for the last couple of miles to the property along the narrowest and steep approach road with tall hedgerows on either side."

    However, the view over Cardigan Bay from Cockshead Cottage more than makes up for that tiresome journey in and out to the property.

  • "Excellent cosy warm cottage with breathtaking views but it is not made clear how narrow the lane is and that there are some tight hairpin bends but when you get there it was well worth it ."

The property

Situated high up near Cemaes Head, the highest point on the Pembrokeshire Coast Path and overlooking Cardigan Island, this detached cottage enjoys views across the Teifi Estuary and further out to sea.

Dolphins are sometimes seen in the bay but are regular visitors just further north at New Quay, where you can take dolphin spotting boat trips and are seldom disappointed.

The owners have made every effort to ensure that all your needs are catered for, outside is a table and chairs which also takes in the amazing views and catches the sun and indoors everything you need is provided for.

The cottage is situated just under a mile from the Blue Flag beach of Poppit Sands, which is patrolled by lifeguards from May to September and is also a base for the Cardigan RNLI lifeboat and shop.

There is also a popular beach café and ice cream kiosk. Cardigan is some four miles away and the fully restored site of Cardigan Castle is well worth a visit and it boasts a restaurant/café which is recommended.

The town itself offers a good selection of shops, restaurants and galleries.

About the location


Cardigan 1 mile.

St Dogmaels is an ancient and tranquil village nestling peacefully around its ruined abbey at the mouth of the River Teifi on the totally unspoiled west Wales coast. One of its attractions is Y Felin, one of only two working watermills in Wales and retains the machinery installed in 1820. It is thought the mill was originally built by the monks of St Dogmaels' 12th century Abbey. The miller shows how the mill works and bread, flour and cakes can be purchased from the mill or you can enjoy tea and cakes and light lunches in the Coach House Café nearby. An award winning local produce market is held here every Tuesday and is well worth a visit. The village has a pub, a fish & chip shop, a Post Office, a cafe and a small museum at the abbey. There is also a pretty green and a millpond with ducks. Cardigan, a delightful ancient market town, is just over a mile away. This ancient town sits on the estuary of the River Teifi at the base of Cardigan Bay. Its unspoilt townscape and rich heritage provide a nostalgic backdrop to a thriving culture of arts and crafts, events and music festivals. Nearby is the wonderful Poppit Sands where you can relax on sunny days or enjoy invigorating walks in the cooler months, as well as exploring the beautiful Pembrokeshire Coast Path. St Dogmaels is the start or finish of the 186 mile Pembrokeshire Coast Path from St Dogmaels to Amroth. Visit Castell Henllys, the Iron Age Fort where everyone is encouraged to learn the ancient way of living, or visit the wonderful Shire Horse Farm to see how farming was before tractors. The Cardigan Bay dolphins can be seen off the bay on a regular basis and more active pursuits can be found at Cardigan Bay Active, including surfing, wildlife trips or coasteering. With scenic coastal, riverside and countryside walks and an array of other beaches and attractions all close by, this is a perfect holiday location all year round.
