Absolutely the most stunning location: Poppit Sands & Newport Sands just 10 minute drive & just the best beaches we have visited ; our cottage was just perfect for our needs , my 87 year old mom was with us & feels the cold , but we had a fabulous log fire that kept her cosy on the evening , we will return so that says it all, such a peaceful location with easy access to Aldi & Tesco 15 min drive away for your essentials but also great choice eating out too.
The site’s position really is the jewel, it’s fantastically situated, with stunning views towards the sea on one side and the Preseli Hills on the other. The nearest pebbly cove is just a short steep walk away and our route back to the cottages took us up through a lovely, ancient wood with a stream running noisily alongside, which meanders close by the cottages too. After our long afternoon walk we relaxed in the sauna and hot tub in the ‘mini spa’ overlooking the stream and surrounding countryside to enjoy a stunning sunset.
