Just 5 minutes drive from the beach at Poppit Sands, this renovated Pembrokeshire cottage offers outstanding views from every window of the ancient Abbey and quaint friendly village of St Dogmaels with the Teifi Estuary beyond. Great cottage for all seasons to explore Pembrokeshire and Ceredigion.

Gwawrfryn is a home from home, stylishly mixing modern and vintage furniture with plenty of art. Laze in the large comfortable lounge, snuggle by the roaring wood fire, relax in the roll top bath. Lose yourself in a book on the cushioned window seats. This is a great place for chilling after a busy day at the coast, enjoying al fresco life on the patio.

The village has 2 friendly pubs (all walkable distance), post office, convenience store and fish and chip shop. You can enjoy a glass of wine or dinner out at the nearby Ferry Inn (lovely views of the estuary) or venture further afield to try some of the excellent restaurants in the local area. The 12th Century St Dogmaels Abbey has the Coach House Visitor Centre with cafe and there is a working watermill nearby (only 2 left in Wales). The well-known weekly St Dogmaels Tuesday organic food market is a must – from 9am to 1pm.

The picturesque Pembrokeshire Coast Path begins at St Dogmaels and there are a number of circular walks in the area. The broad expanse of Poppit Sands is nearby and there are smaller sandy beaches in the coves on Cardigan Bay, ideal for spotting seals and dolphins. If you enjoy a challenge, Adventure Beyond are an outdoor activity company that can organise bespoke adventures including surfing lessons, canoeing on the Teifi Gorge, sea-kayaking, whitewater rafting, coasteering and bushcraft skills.

Boat trips can be taken in the bay. The Sea Warrior does trips down the Teifi for £5 from Cardigan. Golf can be enjoyed nearby at Gwbert and 20 minutes away at Newport. The Welsh Wildlife Centre (lots of hides for bird-watching and walks) and Glasshouse Café lies just beyond Cilgerran Castle. Castell Henllys, the Iron Age fort is 10 minutes away, good for both children and adults. The Preseli Hills area of the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park is a 20 minute drive.

Head into Ceredigion, with the great beaches of Aberporth, Newquay, Tresaith, Llangrannog and the Georgian coastal town of Aberaeron with its National Trust property Llanerchaeron.

The bustling historic town of Cardigan is a 5-minute drive or short bus ride away and has shops, supermarkets, craft shops, surf clothing shops, cafés, restaurants and pubs. Cardigan Castle is renovated and open to the public. There is also a swimming pool and Theatre Mwldan with live performances and 2 cinemas onsite. Enjoy home baked pizza and beer under canvas at the Pizza Tipi (live music on certain evenings). There are some new Cardigan restaurants Crwst (Coffee and Brunch) and El Salsa, great Mexican cuisine.

There are many events and food festivals up and down the coast throughout the summer.
