Ty To ("Thatched House") is a spellbinding little cottage, tucked away in a coastal location just a stone's throw from some of Pembrokeshire's finest beaches.

Built in the late 1600s, the Ty To is steeped in history, and is one of the few remaining thatched properties in West Pembrokeshire.

A short drive from Britain's smallest city, St. Davids, the cottage is a sensational place from which to explore this wild & wonderful corner of Wales.

The space
Ty To is a cosy, whitewashed stone cottage with a deep thatch and exposed ancient timbers.

The original doorway leads into the delightful kitchen, bedecked with carefully sourced antique furniture and top of the range appliances. A vintage Sandyford range cooker rests in the old inglenook, perfect for Sunday roasts!
From the old butler sink there are glimpses of the sea..

Up the reclaimed slate steps and through the hall into the congenial living room, warmed by underfloor heating, with shuttered windows and deep, snuggly sofas. The space can be divided into two with characterful panelled doors or kept open plan.

Through the wide doors there is an ancient inglenook, accommodating a thoroughly contemporary Everhot electric stove, perfect for roasting chestnuts or warming hot chocolate! The Georgian linen press is laden with games and books, for long, lazy afternoons.

Just beyond, the charming master bedroom suite is brimming with antique furniture and luxury bed linen. The bed is kingsize and there are plenty of warm, woolly welsh blankets and vintage angle-poise lighting for cosy evenings.

The light and airy bathroom, just next door, is furnished with vintage fixtures and fittings, pine floors and wood panelling.

The second bedroom, snugly located in the eaves above the kitchen, benefits from two single beds and its own ensuite WC. From here, there are wide views across undulating fields.
The stairs here were handcrafted from a tree felled by a storm in the nearby Gwaun Valley!

Back out the front door and into the garden..
To the right of the front door is the utility space with washing machine, sink and a perfect place for muddy boots!

The garden is split into two large spaces, with spacious parking at the front for two cars. The weathered flagstones lead from here up to the hidden rear garden, enclosed by ancient stone walls, ideal for dogs. There is a sunny seating area in the far corner, perfect for barbecues and warm Summer's evenings.

Ty To is set well back from the sleepy country lane, up a track shared with only one other property, and is surely in one of the quietest corners of Wales!

Where you’ll be

St Davids, Wales, United Kingdom

Ty To is just a mile from the sea, as the crow flies. Abereiddy, a beautiful sandy beach with many rockpools, and the enchanting Blue Lagoon (famed for sea diving) are both a short walk on the dramatic Coastal Path.

Even closer is the tiny cove of Aber-Pwll, a wonderful place to spot seals and pups in the late Summer/early Autumn.

Of course, there are many more beaches within a 10 minute drive, including Whitesands, Caerfai, Porthlysgi, Porthmelgan and multiple small coves and harbours dot the landscape.

For the more adventurous, the high promontory of Penberri is easily walkable from the cottage, and affords the intrepid rambler incomparable views of the Pembrokeshire coast.

Surrounded by common land, the hamlet of Tretio is firmly in the National Park. Much of the lowland heath that abuts the cottage is part of the National Trust or designated SSSI (Site of Special Scientific Interest).

Many rare heath and marsh plants are in abundance, and unusual birds, mammals, amphibians and invertebrates are commonly sighted.
