'A welcome in heavenly hills! Warmed by a lovely woodburner, Cwm Hill 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 Cwm Hill as the best UK cottages to 'Sleep with the Stars'.
See lots of larger photos of this Pembrokeshire cottage here. Cwm Hill 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 (completed in summer 2011) 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 location in the heart of Pembrokeshire is ideal for exploring this, the greenest (and many would say prettiest) of Welsh counties. Short drives will take you to unspoilt beaches, ancient castles, and pretty market towns, or there is a footpath over to nearby Llys-y-Fran country park and lake (2 km). At the lake you can hire bikes and take a trip around the water (6km) on safe tracks. Read an independent 5* guest review or see unedited guest holiday photos - everyone loves Cwm Hill!
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. WIFI provided free of charge (usually available like any WIFI, but cannot be guaranteed).
The nearest train station is Clarbeston Road (only 3.5 miles distant, 8 minute drive) but you may feel that you want a car to explore the area. Access from South of England via M4 is quick, and easy.
"We really fell for Cwm Hill. Nestling in it's secluded valley it was so tempting to hunker down and stay put for the whole of our stay. But we managed to tear ourselves away from our little cottage for a swim at the Blue Lagoon pool and great shops at Narberth, perfect!" Bethan & Huw + baby Megan
"Cwm Hill was everything we could have hoped for...and it looks much better in real life than the pictures. We have loved the peace, solace and tranquility of this cosy cottage - possibly the best we have ever stayed in, and we'd love to return" H & L + Florence (dog)
"One of the most peaceful, relaxing places we have ever stayed in. It's a lovely little cottage and felt like stepping back in time. Loved the tapas at nearby Ultracomida and the walk to Llys-y-Fran lake." Martin, Helen & Misty
