Beaches near Hen Bwthyn

Abermawr
A little known, but large and impressive bay with a large pebble bank created by a huge storm in 1859. At low tide the beach is sandy and offers good conditions for kiting. Surfing here can also be good and is never crowded, but the strong currents can be hazardous. Facing west, southerly and northerly winds will be cross-shore and the headlands aren't too high so they shouldn't be too gusty. Parking is along the roadside (limited space), there is a short path from the roadside to the beach.
Aberbach Bay
This small beach is next to the larger Abermawr beach and its about 5 minutes walk from the road or 10 minutes around the cliffs from Abermawr. Although mainly pebbles at low tide Aberbach becomes a big sandy beach and the bonus is, its never crowded. A perfect hideaway for a picnic!
Abercastle
A picturesque cove and fishing village, with a sand and shingle beach. The beach faces north west so is sheltered from south westerly gales. Its primary use is as a harbour for local fishermen. There is a slipway for boats, and Abercastle is particularly popular with divers. Swimming, kayaking and angling are also popular here, but the cove is too small for 'forces-of-nature' sports.
Aberfelin Bay
Aberfelin, when the tide is out , abounds with myriads of rock pools in this little sand and shingle beach enclosed by rugged cliffs. Its own special island with a tunnel you can walk through and clear blue water completes this lovely quiet bay. The cove and little stone mill on the stream provided the inspiration for one of Wales' famous bards to write “Melin Trefin” has ensured it's position for eternity within the culture of Wales.
Porthgain
An impressive sandy beach surrounded by equally impressive cliffs and headlands. When rough, there can be some pretty nasty rips at this beach making it unsuitable for swimming. Part of the beach can get cut off at high tide too, so watch out. To find it drive to either Porthgain and take the Coastal Path to the beach, or alternatively you can park at Abereiddy and take the 1 km walk along the Coast Path to Traethllyfn. Approx. 124 steep metal steps lead down to beach.
Abereiddy
A blue sandy/pebble beach with dramatic cliffs, pretty colour-washed cottages and the striking Blue Lagoon - once a slate quarry. Abereiddy beach is ideal for surfers and kayakers and very popular with coasteering groups. This beach-side community, previously the home of quarrymen, now attracts visitors seeking a retreat from the hassles of modern-day life. Children will love the pastime of local children through the ages – the search for Didymographus fossils which can be found in the slatey stones on the beach.
Abereiddy
After parking at Abereiddy, take the short walk around the cliff, passing the ruined quarry buildings and slate workers cottages and you will discover the Blue Lagoon! The Blue Lagoon is the site of a former slate quarry and was created over a century ago when the outer wall was breached. The water has a very distinctive deep blue-green colour, which is caused by the build-up of minerals in the lagoon. Nowadays the lagoon is very popular with outdoor adventure groups using the platforms to jump into the deep water below after an afternoon participating in the ever popular activity, coasteering. Abereiddi and the Blue Lagoon will always be a reminder of Pembrokeshire's industrial past.
Goodwick
Although the large sheltered harbour of Goodwick looks like an ideal flat water windsurfing location, the high cliffs surrounding it makes it a gusty venue in all but North Easterly winds and not really suited to any kind of 'forces-of-nature' sport. There's a promenade above the top of the beach and a long breakwater that you can walk along. Dolphins and basking sharks are occasionally seen off the beach as they swim round the harbour.
Newgale
Newgale provides the ideal location for watersports. There is always plenty of space on the long, two mile stretch of flat sand and whilst the Atlantic Ocean rollers ensure some exciting surf, it is an ideal beach for the young and not so expert. The beach is patrolled by lifeguards during the school holidays. There is a cafe at both ends of the beach, the Duke of Edinburgh Inn is located on the seafront and there are regular visits by the ice cream van in the summer.
Solva is a beautiful rocky inlet which floods, except at low tide, providing a sheltered, safe anchorage for yachts and pleasure craft. Not surprisingly this fine natural harbour has given the village a long seafaring tradition. At low tide there is a small stretch of sand, but the picturesque little harbour provides a pleasant afternoon for watching the small boats coming and going. A busy little village in the summer, with plenty of cafes, restaurants, pubs and gift shops. Solva is just east of St Davids on the A487 Haverfordwest Road. Parking is on the harbour front.

Thank you for a nice and astonishing restored cottage. When you see these two pictures ... Also wine, flowers and lavendar as a welcome is very kind.


Sue and Chris Wade

Thank you for the wine and the flowers, very much appreciated. The cottage is lovely, very well equipped and cared for. It was good being back in Pembrokeshire - The weather was it's usual mix, wind, rain, and when the sun was out nowhere on earth is quite like it. Very good walks on the coastal path. The grandchildren (Camping at Celtic Camping) had a wonderful time at the Blue Lagoon at Abereiddy and enjoyed the sloop in at Porthgain. Thank you again, we hope to be back


Dick & Fergus the cocker spaniel

Have had a lovely week in Pembrokeshire. First visit to this part of Wales and it didn't disappoint. We feel we have seen all sides of the area, and in all weathers! We have walked several sections of the coastal path including Porthgain to Abereiddy (Blue Lagoon), Dinas Head, and the 'biggie' - Strumble Head to Abercastle - 9 miles! Took the advice of a previous guest and parked car at Abercastle (2 miles away) and caught coastal bus to Strumble Head then walked back - apart coastpath we also enjoyed St David's, Solva and Newport. In Newport there is a very good restaurant Llys Meddyg, fantastic food and dog friendly.The hidden valley of Cwm Gwaun also lovely and totally different from the coast. Marloes Sands (towards Haverfordwest) also absolutely gorgeous - and empty! All in all a great week in a very comfortable and welcoming cottage. Could have wished for a bit more sunshine, but hey, you can't have everything! P.S Farmers Arms in Village friendly and nice, didn't eat there but enjoyed a few evening drinks. The bus is a great way of getting around with out the car and thanks for the wine.


Clive and Bev

Had a lovely week, the weather has been on and off, but did not stop us getting out on our motorbike. The cottage is very quaint and cosy, it is very quiet and peaceful here, the best night's sleeps we have had! The coastal walks are brill, and the best was Strumble Head, very breezy but refreshing and we saw a few Seals. The Farmers Arms & The Ship Inn, in Trefin were nice places for drinks & food. St David's was good, the Cathedral was awesome. It has been relaxing & comfortable stay, and thank you for the bottle of wine when we arrived.


Peter

We have had a fantastic week here, the cottage is brilliant with everything you need is at hand, so thank you. The coastal path is brilliant and the weather this week has bee good, just a few showers on Thursday.The food in the local inn has been very good, but would recommend the shed at Porthgain which is the best with good atmosphere to boot and reasonable prices. Thanks for the extras which was a good thing, we did enjoy the wine.


Murph

Heh Dudes loved this cottage, it's well cool, Julie says it's because of the stone floors which is where i've been lying down after long days on the beach. Surf was disappointing but swam everyday - Newgale, Whitesands, Marloes and Abermawr, Tenby too where I met a particularly nice labradoodle!


Anne & John & Spook the dog

Thank you for a very cosy cottage, everything is thought of, from the box for your snadwiches, to the fresh daffodils, milk + wine in fridge. Today as I write this we are having the solar eclipse (partial) in the UK. I won't ever forget this day for many reasons. The weather has been sunny for the whole of our stay. I am a regular visitor to Pembrokeshire, but every time, the whole area gets to me. Mathry reminds of a village in France, the peace and serenity are hard to forget. The coastal path is stunning as always. Strumble Head, abercastle, St Davids, Porthclais & a sunset drink in the sloop. A lovely cosy cottage to return to. Thank you.


Diana & John

We have enjoyed our holiday and thank you for the wine & flowers & the little extras. The local pub provides a friendly service and good food (+ Wifi) The coastal path is at it's best at this time of year with lots of wild flowers, primroses, violets, trefoil, spring squill & bluebells, sea campion & thrift. Dougal our boarder collie had a thouroughly good time on the beaches and walks - as did we. We struggled a bit to keep the stove going but all in all, it was a good holiday in a beautiful location. Regards.


Frankie

Thankyou, a lovely cottage & your thoughtful hospitality was much appreciated, i'd be very happy to return! Best wishes.


Beverley, Stuart & Minsc

What a wonderful cottage to spend a few days in! Absolutely perfect for my 50th. Even though we brought food with us - we ate out at 'The Farmers'each evening and breakfast was taken in the Village Cafe! Am I right in thinking you worked on the Last Invasion Tapestry? What an amazing achievement if so. One of our enduring memories will be the smell of honeysuckle everywhere, including the flowers at Hen Bwthyn.. thankyou, also many thanks for the wine.We will be back.

We have enjoyed our week very much, the cottage is well equipped and comfortable. The walks have been wonderful


Elaine & Bob

We booked this cottage for chrsitmas as we knew it was the place that would provide us with peace, quiet and relaxation- and it has! We have managed to get out & walk on the Coastal Path, enjoyed visiting St Davids, porthgain, the beaches and Fishguard. Thank you for the welcome we head home to Birmingham tomorrow feeling well & relaxed- ready to start the new year. We will definitely be returning for some hen Bwthyn Magic again in the near future, best wishes for 2013


Jane, Paul & Bump

Thank you for letting us stay in your beautiful cottage, we've had an amazing 7 night stay in pembrokeshire and looking forward to coming back next year. Mathry is a lovely villageand we enjoyed your local The Farmers arms. Would recommend The Shed at Porthgain for fish and Chips! Plus the walk from Abercastle to Aberdiddy (via Porthgain) stunning scenery! Newport another fav! Many thanks


Jill & Mark Duffy

Our first time in Pembrokeshire and we have been vey lucky with the weather- lovely sunny days perfect for walking. We have enjoyed the cottage and Mathry has been the perfect base for exploring the area. The farmers arms is a very friendly pub with great food, fish and chips at Porthgain on the harbour was perfect after a long walk, many thanks


lynne & Lindo

Many thanks for teh flowers and wine and all the little extras it was much appreciated.


Luck Party

This is our third stay at Hen Bwthyn and we love it. The weather has been wonderful, we really relaxed and enjoyed exploring the coast on our motor cycle. We have to come back again when we need our batteries re-charging. PS. The Shed in Porthgain does wonderful food, impressive!


Mall & Karen

We enjoyed our stay in your lovely, charming cottage. We have never visited the Pembrokeshire coast before but we were very impressed by the warmth of the people and the un-spoilt scenery.


Richard & Katie

Thank you so much for a lovely few days. The cottage is charming and perfectly placed to enjoy the beautiful area. The Farmers Arms in Mathry is fine for pub grub and a pint whilst the Farmers Arms in St Davids has a beer garden which is a sun trap! Very sorry to be returning home to the busy city. Many thanks for a relaxing break and for the bottle of wine.


Cyril & Pat

Thank you for letting us stay for a long weekend in your lovely little cottage. Also thank you for the bottle of wine, it was appreciated.

Enjoyed relaxing in this lovely, cosy cottage enjoying a glass of lovely wine in front of a log fire. Cottage was lovely and clean, pub in village is very friendly. Well worth our long journey here and the lovely wine was well appreciated


Richard & Bethan

We love this place it's the best cottage we have stayed in. We saw a seal and her pup who was learning to swim in Aberiddy and great walks along the coast. Feel very relaxed now and dont want to leave, thank you to margaret for your wine and attention to detail

Julie & David

A great week spent relaxing and cycling around the lovely quiet lanes - nice rolling countryside with not to many steep hills. Cottage was very cosy - fire worked well. Over all a lovely place and many thanks for the wine.

We have enjoyed a relaxing and happy time in this beautiful cottage. It has proved itself to be a romantic setting 'steeped in the past'. We thank you for your attention to detail and your kindness. The wine and flowers were both welcoming and appreciated.


Claire & Malcolm

Thank you for the wine and a lovely stay in Hen Bwthyn. We were very cosy in your cottage, which was far nicer than the photographs suggest. Thank you again for a lovely time


Nigel & Lorraine

The cottage is comfortable and we have enjoyed our stay.


Helen & David

Have had a lovely 4 days, first time in Pembrokeshire, celebrating our 7th Wedding Anniversary. The cottage was very cosy and the weather has been good. Good beaches, Whitesands, Abercastle and Abermawr. St David's is a nice town, had a good day there. Also visited the fish and ship shop in Letterston - lovely meal. Mr and Mrs Hughes, thanks for the loan of your cottage. Hope to be back soon.


Tim & Chris

Well, what can we say! Another perfect week of weather for our return visit. Lots of walking, but also a lot of just sitting and staring. We thought this visit to Hen Bwthyn would get it out of our system, but it doesn't seem to have worked, we'll probably be back.


Tom & Katy

Lovely cottage, great location! Super New Year in the Farmers Arms (don't remember much of the following day!) We'll be back!


Scott & Sue

Gorgeous cottage. First holiday cottage we've been in and think we've spoiled ourselves, as no other will be able to match up to it! Oh, well, never mind, we'll just have to come back to this one. Lots of nice places to eat around here.


Leon & Qven

A roaring fire, a twinkling tree, howling wind and the rain tapdancing on the windows. A picture card Christmas!


Mr & Mrs Marks

Have really enjoyed a few days in this comfy, cosy cottage. Weather perfect. Sorry we can't stay longer. Really appreciated the caring and hospitable way the cottage is kept. Lots of caring touches. Will remember Mathry. Many thanks.
