Ty Canol, one of two converted stone cottages here at Porthiddy Farm, is set within a delightful part of Pembrokeshire countryside, just minutes from the superb coastline of this very special part of Wales.
Awarded 5* from Visit Wales, this charming and well presented cottage is set in a wonderful rural location, walkers will delight at the coastal paths nearby and there is ample opportunity to explore St.Davids (15 minute drive away) with its stunning Cathedral, excellent restaurants and boutique shops, or idle days away on the beautiful beaches nearby a very peaceful and attractive spot to escape to.
Upon your arrival at the cottages, one of the first things the welcoming owners (who live in the nearby Farmhouse) recommend to do is make your way down to the beach on foot, across Porthiddy Farms fields, through the rough common in the valley and stop and take in the views of the bay. This short walk will take you past old cottages built for fishermen and workers at the old slate quarry (now the “Blue Lagoon”) and is instantly uplifting, particularly if you’ve had far to come. It is a fantastic spot to catch a spectacular sunset as you look out west from the beach.
Set on two floors, Ty Canol is full of cottage charm. The large kitchen provides a warm welcome and is well equipped with butler-sink, wooden table, chairs & cupboards, electric oven, microwave, fridge, freezer, dishwasher and washer/dryer. The back door opens out onto a small patio area with outdoor seating. Also on the ground floor is a comfortable sitting room with TV, DVD player, and a downstairs bathroom with a full suite and shower over the bath. Upstairs there are two attractive bedrooms – a family room with a double and a single, and a twin bedroom with two single beds. There is also a shower room upstairs with shower, WC & wash hand basin.
The back door overlooks the farmyard garden and there is a private patio terrace area with outdoor table and chairs for you to enjoy breakfast alfresco. Walk through the gate into the Farmyard Garden and you will find a shared enclosed grassed area with stunning views towards Strumble Head – a ideal spot to enjoy the peace and tranquillity of the area.
There is a small-shared storage shed for storing your bikes, surf-boards, etc.
Alongside the cottage for one car.
