The Space

'Bella' magazine named this the 'top UK cottage for star gazing' - there is zero light pollution.

One of the loveliest holiday cottages in Wales? - many guests who have stayed here have noted it as their best ever holiday!

Just bring yourselves, food and drink. The bed is made (100% cotton linen), towels are provided, as are teatowels, a new dishcloth and sponge at every changeover, washing up liquid, liquid soap, first few toilet rolls, first basket of logs for the fire (and matches, kindling, paper), and the kitchen is equipped. There's even free WIFI - Please no streaming/downloading - All you need to do is relax :)

Late arrivals are fine as we use a keycode system (no need to meet us on arrival).

This is what Bella magazine said - 'A welcome in heavenly hills! Warmed by a lovely woodburner, this is a cute, pocket-sized pink 'croglofft' cottage for two, set in a peaceful valley in Pembrokeshire. This area is high on lushness but low on light pollution - perfect to enjoy starry Welsh skies through the roof window over your head. By day explore the stunning Pembrokeshire coast and the clutch of surrounding castles. The nearby medieval town of Tenby has upmarket restaurants and boutiques, while Narbeth offers swish shops and delis to stock up.' Bella magazine choosing this cottage as the best UK cottage to 'Sleep with the Stars'.

This is a traditional Pembrokeshire 'croglofft' cottage set snuggly into the hillside in a quiet and peaceful green valley. Drive down half a mile of track to find the cottage in a field that runs down to a stream. Small, cosy and ideal for romantic getaways. You have two acres of land to romp about in, and direct access to a good footpath network - making this a great cottage for dog owners.

The cottage had been empty since the 1940s, and has been fully restored by Under the Thatch conserving all original features. The three-year rescue project provides a cottage full of character, antique furnishings and modern conveniences to complement the open fire and wood-burner. Central heating, a modern, efficient wood-burner and an open fire keep the cottage snug year-round.

The cottage is centrally heated (included in holiday price) and there is an open fire and woodburner. The ground floor is open plan, and open to the 'croglofft' sleeping mezzanine over. All windows have open country views - you can't see any other houses.

Kitchen area with gas cooker and hob, fridge (with ice-box), microwave.
Cegin Fawr with c4m high ceiling giving sense of space. Slate floors, woodburner, sofa, table & chairs. Doors front and back.
Croglofft: Double bed open as mezzanine to room below.
