Situated in North Pembrokeshire, Castell Henllys is an extraordinary day out for anyone interested in history. With a reconstructed Iron Age Hill fort, Castell Henllys is set in 26 acres of woodland on excavated remains from over 2000 years ago. Particularly interesting is the three large replica roundhouses, the granary and forge.
Please Note: Dogs are welcomed but must be kept on leads at all times.
Loved the accommodation clean, warm, cosy and quiet - ticked all the boxes! This holiday was for chilling out and we certainly achieved that! A nice combination of eating out and staying in fish and chips at Gary's quay road Goodwick and going to the shed. The weather mixed but that hasn't stopped us, nice to come back to such a lovely place after a day out. Newgale beach lovely and we found a lovely beach close by to walk Barney the dog! What a nice break shame we have to go back to working for a living!
A wonderful week, quiet and great views. St David's a little city more like a village wonderful trip seal watching. Great dog walking. You can hire wet suits from St David's and the kids enjoyed the secret beach walk from Abereiddy and downstairs to beach towards Porthgain.(dog didn't make the metal steps)but the others made it! Clean comfy and lovely cottage!
Lovely cosy cottage with amazing views. Have enjoyed our week with only half a days rain. Coastal path like a garden with all the flowers and Skomer tranquil with Puffins and other sea birds.
A fantastic week of sunshine everyday. Our first time in Pembrokeshire and loved every bit of it. The dogs were in heaven beach and swimming everyday especially like Aber Mawr beach as a twenty five minute walk from the road through lovely countryside before getting to the beach. St David's is beautiful, loved the cottage as well - a very friendly and cosy atmosphere1 We hope to return soon.
Lovely cottage in absolutely stunning location. The highlight of our week has definitely been walking the coastal path especially to Porthgain and discovering the seals with their young pups on the beach. The area is steeped in interesting history and quite evocative,we discovered something new everyday. We will be back!
Actions speak louder than words we will book again! Our 5th year staying in this area even changing we were not disappointed!
A great week mostly sunny, little need to travel as Whitesands a great beach for our dog until the ban on the 1st of May. Still plenty of other beaches. Wonderful coastal flora much enjoyed. All in all a very relaxing and comfortable week. The Coastal cruiser bus makes circular walks around St David's really easy and at £1.00 a head and free for one wet dog is really worth supporting.
Very relaxing week in a great location. First time in Pembrokeshire and we will be back. Great weather! Everthing was perfect about the cottage and we really enjoyed the cosy nights in. The Shed for fish and chips were great and we had a good meal at The Grove in St Davids. Solva is worth a visit and Tenby was very pretty. The beaches at Newgale and Whitesands are awesome and don't miss the Blue Lagoon at Abereiddi. Sorry to be leaving!
Weather dry but windy for the first few days. Lovely comfortable cottage with great views. Peaceful and secluded. Willow, the labrador, loved the beaches and the sea and is going home exhasuted!
Our 3rd visit. Another relaxing holiday in a fantastic setting, cottage very comfortable. Weather a mix of sun and cloud, often windy. However still enjoyed coastal scenery and beaches at Whitesands, Broad Haven South, Abereiddi and Marloes Sands. Pembroke Castle is great. The children have loved body boarding, rock pooling and collecting shells. We booked at The Sloop Inn and enjoyed a family meal - great atmosphere. We are sorry to be leaving, thank you for your hospitality.
Lovely fortnight with plenty of beach days, Whitesands definitely the best beach - excellent body boarding and a wonderful beach shop. Kayak hire at Newgale vrey good even with no previous kayaking experience. Ramsey Island boat trip was brilliant and we saw seals, porpoises, gulls etc. Cycling at Llys y Fran very good but tricky sections require mountain bikes. The Brunel trail from Haverfordwest to Neyland is very flat with a very nice cafe at the end. Pembertons Chocolate Farm is great for a rainy day. We all enjoyed The Shed but agree that you must book in advance unless you want a take-away. Another great place for food is Cottage Caterers, you ring them with your order and then collect it later. You then have a lovely meal which you haven't had to cook. Over all we really enjoyed our stay and hope to come again!
Lovely to enjoy the tranquility of the superbly located and appointed cottage. Mixed weather but glorious walks and views each day. Superb variety of butterflies. Coastal Paths glorious! Wonderful hospitality at both The Sloop and The Shed highly recommended!
We all thoroughly enjoyed a wonderful week, with lots of walks on the coastal paths. Watched fantastic sunsets over the sea. The Shed at Porthgain is a definite hit - but remember to book to avoid dissapointment! Looking forward to coming here in Pembrokeshire again!
Relaxing holiday, lovely cottage, lots of walking, especially to Traeth Llyfn where we spent many an hour watching the noisy peregrines giving us fantastic air displays! We ate at The Ship Inn, Trefin, and also The Sloop and The Shed in Porthgain - all good! Can also recommend excellent sandwiches at the cafe in Trefin!
This has been our second visit to Pembrokeshire and I have to say, it has been fantastic. Last time we stayed in Lower Town Fishguard - however staying here has been so very restful, due to location and quietness. The weather has been brilliant and perfect for all the coastal walking - I swear the dogs legs must be shorter after all the miles they've done! If you like your coastal walks try doing the one from St Davids. You can park in Porthclais Harbour and then get on the coastal path heading towards St Justinians. There's some fantastic coast lines to see and a vast range of wild flowers and birds - There's also a lovely beach half way which is ideal for having your lunch at. Talking of beaches our favourite is Traeth Llyfn - you can only get there by foot, from either Abereiddi or Porthgain. Its only about 30mins walk on pretty easy terrain (But be aware there are a few steps down to the beach). Be sure to take your lunch, a good book and your swim wear! I guarantee you can spend all day there it's like the place that time forgets and the best bit about it, is that it nevers gets crowded - you're own little bit of paradsise... Pembrokeshire Paradise!
Completely relaxing week in a lovely secluded spot yet near enough to well supplied shop at Square and Compass and the restaurants in Porthgain. Weather changed daily but never enough to keep you indoors.
Have really enjoyed our week in your comfortable cottage - so quiet and peaceful! Skomer Marine Nature Reserve worth a visit. The Shed at Porthgain really does serve delicious fish and chips, but you do need to book! Look forward to visiting again.
Amazing cottage in a fantastic location. First time to stay with Coastal Cottages and will definitely be coming back. Ideal for outdoor kids and dogs. Fish and chips at The Shed (Porthgain).
Lovely time in a cosy cottage with sea views. Walking as good as ever with wild flowers everywhere.
A beautiful place to spend a perfect week away from stressful lives. Such a treat to see our dog the way she should be - running through fields and splashing in the sea! Amazing coastline walks, breathtaking views and a homely cottage. We can't wait to come back again soon! Thank you!
LUCKY, LUCK US!! We have had absolutely brilliant weather - sunny and hot every day until today when we are leaving. We've spent most of the week body boarding and walking the beautiful coastline. WHAT A WONDERFUL WEEK! We don't want to go!! Lovely, cosy, friendly house. Great to come back to and wake up in.
