Pembrokeshire Cottages at Penparc, nr Trefin

Two non-smoking and pet free self-catering holiday cottages, one sleeping two, this one is graded literally right at the top end of  four star, the other, sleeping 6 in three bedrooms, is graded the maximum 5 Stars.. The cottages are adjacent to each other half way between St. Davids and Fishguard in the hamlet of Penparc, on the St. Davids Peninsula, close to the centre of the best stretch of the Pembrokeshire coast - that part that is north east of St Davids.

Our cottages are situated within the protected Pembrokeshire Coast National Park which consists principally of a strip of land following the Pembrokeshire coastline. There are extensive sea views from the good sized garden laid almost exclusively to lawn,  and in particular stunning views of the cliffs around Strumble Head - the picture at the top was taken from the gardens.

One mile down a quite country lane from our cottages and hamlet is the acclaimed village of Trefin, situated on clifftops between the famous harbours of Porthgain and beautiful Abercastle. Trefin has its own cove on the edge of the village at Aberflyn, with numerous rock pools in this small sand and shingle beach which is surrounded on three sides by rugged cliffs. Trefin is quite a bustling village with a post office, pub, an artist's gallery, a more general craft shop, and a couple of tea shops. About 300 yards in the opposite direction of the country lane, off which our cottages are situated, is the main (but not busy) Fishguard to St Davids Road

Quite apart from the wonderfully scenic location, the cottages are also well placed for amenities, there is one pub serving  real ale and also bar food just a few hundred yards away, with two more pubs selling again real ale and bar meals only one mile away, whilst a fourth pub, the Sloop, only one and a half miles away in the fishing harbour of Portgain, is certainly the most famous pub on the St Davids Peninsula, and possibly the most famous one in Pembrokeshire.

There are a substantial number of other pubs within 6 miles, a couple of restaurants, and needless to say numerous tea shops within a similar distance.

Nearby (about 400 yards away) is a petrol station with a really smart attached larger grocery store attached offering a wide selection of groceries, newspapers, logs etc. on the main Fishguard/St Davids Road 

The larger cottage has a wifi modem, so no difficulty in receiving a wifi service in this cottage; in the smaller cottage the signal is extremely weak and can only be picked up in a couple of places (or outside).
