  • "This is a well appointed cottage in a beautiful location."

    For us, the proximity to the Pembrokeshire coastal path attracted us initially and we were not disappointed. We spent a couple of days exploring the immediate area on foot. We had picked up provisions on our way to Trefasser, and supplemented these in Fishguard a few days later. We were very comfortable in the cottage and it gave us the perfect chance to unwind and refresh - a great short break. Thank you.

  • "Just after we arrived the owner Cath introduced herself and the very friendly dogs."

    The house was nice and comfortable, almost everything you could need. Plenty of towels, comfortable beds. No sharp knife but that is normal for holiday let! If there was a full house you might run out of plates, but as there was only two it was no problem. Found one pan and spoon not washed in the cupboard. A few of the light bulbs need replacing. Jets on the bath not working, and 2 Tv remotes missing, my friend changed bedrooms to the twin as she was able to change channels manually, so upstairs double bedroom wasn't used. Would have liked information about the house, flying the washing machine, cooker and altering the underfloor heating and what to do with rubbish.

  • "Situated in a farm courtyard this characterful stable conversion is refurbished really well."

    We loved the variety of boxer dogs that came to say hello. The double bed downstairs is super comfy. The upstairs bed is firm if you prefer one like that. It has everything you need and we particularly loved the Aga oven. The sunsets from Pwllderi, a short walk from the cottage, are not to be missed. Thanks for a super break!

  • "We have had a lovely week."

    Kathy is a wonderful host, and Old Spot Cottage is a lovely property with all the finishing touches and everything you could need for your holiday. Highly recommend. The bedrooms are spacious and comfortable, plenty of bath and hand towels are provided, and there is soap in the bathrooms. The bath is a fabulous treat! The kitchen is modern and well equipped. A great base to explore the stunning Pembrokeshire coast from.

  • "We had an enjoyable stay and came to know Kathy, the owner quite well."

    There were several minor issues which we pointed out to Kathy along with suggestions to improve the existing facilities - with which she agreed. The main points concern Sykes advance publicity - Because of the photos and description online, we were expecting a location with views of the countryside from the cottage door and windows, but that was not possible because of its location on one side of the farmyard, but and with other cottages in direct proximity, blocking the view and also a semi derelict area of buildings immediately next to the cottage. All four of us agreed your photos were deceptive and not enough attention give to the details. The utility area and second shower/toilet - down slate steps - was difficult for the two older members of our party to negotiate. The immediate vicinity of the cottage and farm is exceptionally beautiful with the Pembroke Coastal Path passing 1/2 mile up the lane giving access to magnificent sea, cliff and coastal views. Fortunately, we were blessed with glorious weather for the whole of our stay.

  • "Excellent accommodation, very spacious, clean and comfortable."

    Just a very minor issue. on website, it was listed as WiFi but we were told when we asked that it was not working. Maybe worth just making that clear on website that currently there is no WiFi. It did not really matter much to us but someone may want to access internet even on holiday. Otherwise, probably the best accommodation of this type that we had stayed in. Thank you very Kathy and family.

    Wi-Fi is now provided at Old Spot Cottage. Property Owner

The property

Goodwick 3.5 miles, Fishguard 5.0 miles, St Davids 14.0 miles.

Old Spot Cottage is a characterful, family-friendly cottage located in the north Pembrokeshire hamlet of Trefasser near Strumble Head.

Settled in a rural location with easy access to the sparkling coast, the cottage is brimming with unique features for a family of six's next holiday by the sea.

Off-road farmyard parking greets you on arrival to unpack and get settled in with ease, while taking in your peaceful surroundings.

Step inside to find a kitchen/diner ready to host family dinners after the day's adventures; farmhouse meets contemporary in this well-equipped space with an electric range cooker, dishwasher, and a round, wooden table for six.

After you've cleared the plates and put the little ones to bed, why not grab a bottle from the wine cooler, pour yourself a glass, and step into the enclosed rear garden for a moment's peace.

Retreat inside as the evening cools to a beautiful, spacious sitting room with a vaulted ceiling, exposed beams, stone walls, and a gorgeous, stained-glass, original chapel window.

Curl up on the sofas in this unique space with a good book or your favourite show on the TV, all the while the wood burning stove crackles nearby to complete the picture!

After wandering the coast, return to Old Spot Cottage and head to the utility room; located six steps down from the kitchen, you'll find a washing machine and a wet room to freshen up.

Two bedrooms are located on the ground floor, one family-friendly room containing a double bed, child's bed, and cot, alongside a twin with a TV, while upstairs lies the double room which benefits from lovely views, sloped ceilings, a TV, and the quirky chapel window to admire up close.

All bedrooms are served by the ground-floor bathroom, complete with a large corner bath for the ultimate relaxation and a walk-in shower with a rainfall shower head.

Begin your seaside adventure by walking down the coast, with Old Spot Cottage ideally located for walking the stunning Pembrokeshire Coast Path, just a two minute walk away heading either North or South!

Also only 500 yards from the bus stop for the ‘Strumble Shuttle’ which can take you towards plenty of walkways leading to stunning sea vistas, picnic spots, and historic monuments like Strumble Head Lighthouse!

Heading east, pick up any essentials at the convenience shop in Goodwick and visit the Ocean Lab Aquarium which you're there!

There are many eateries in the twin town of Fishguard, as well as walkways around the waterfront to picturesque Lower Town, the location of such famous films as Moby Dick starring Gregory Peck and Under Milk Wood starring Richard Burton and Elizabeth Taylor!

Don't forget to call into the Town Hall to visit the historic Last Invasion Tapestry, which was made by around 80 local women to celebrate the 200th anniversary of the Last Invasion of Mainland Britain in 1797 when the Napoleonic French were repelled by locals, led by Welsh heroine Jemima Nicholas and her pitchfork!.

A short distance away is Newport, where you can enjoy sunny days at Newport Beach and learn about historic toys at the Ty Twt Dolls' House and Toy Museum and travel further along to visit the iconic Pentre Ifan Burial Chamber - 5500 years of history in a wonderfully peaceful setting.

Heading west, Britain's smallest city, St Davids with its incredible Cathedral, is within easy reach.

Spend the day creating sandcastles on picturesque beaches such as Abereiddy and Whitesands Bay or take the kids to Dr.Beynon's Bug Farm.

Then jump on a boat trip to Ramsey Island with the RSPB Nature Reserve.

Finish the day in style with a meal in The Bishops in the heart of St Davids!

You'll have plenty to do on your next family-friendly holiday with a stay at Old Spot Cottage.

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.
