Relax and unwind with birdsong and sea breezes in the tranquility of our peaceful cottage! You can be assured of a warm welcome at Ty Rhost, a converted granary in the old farmyard of Cilshafe Fawr where we live. It is completely self-contained and has its own sheltered garden, with a glimpse of the sea. The setting is secluded, in farmland down a private lane. It is only 15 minutes walk from the Pembrokeshire coast path and the flower-strewn cliffs, where you can see nesting seabirds in spring and seal pups in autumn. The nearest shops and beaches are 2-3 miles away, a few minutes by car or by a regular bus, to Fishguard in one direction or towards Newport and Cardigan in the other. Fishguard has good railway links, so it's possible to have a car-free holiday at our cottage.
As well as the long-distance coast path there are many less-frequented inland walking routes close by. There is a shuttle bus service which you can use to access out-of-way spots. Bicycles can be hired locally. There are many historic and prehistoric sites in the area, plenty of wildlife, working artists and craftspeople, local music festivals and other cultural events, some good restaurants, interesting pubs, clean beaches and the opportunity to discover the Welsh language and history. We are happy to supply information about your particular interests or to point you in the direction of rewarding places to visit. The cottage has a wealth of local information about where to go.
The cottage is offered to rent weekly from Easter to October (with short breaks occasionally available as last minute bargains) and a home-baked 'bara brith' tea bread can be ordered to await your arrival.
