  • Had a wonderful week here with only the cows and swallows for company - incredibly peaceful, wished we could have stayed longer. Had two clear nights when the star display was mind-blowing. The cottage is very comfortable and well-equipped for two. Good central location with both North and South coasts within easy reach as well as the Prescelli Hills on the doorstep. Michael parkinson , 23 August 2016
  • We had a wonderful stay ,the cottage was lovely and had everything we needed.We would recommend a visit to Porthgain ,the village is beautiful. Barbets had lovely shops , Tafarn Zinc very friendly . We would love to stay again and would have loved to know he history of the Cottage Karin M, 15 August 2016
  • We had a brilliant holiday! The cottage is tiny, but perfectly formed and we really enjoyed staying there. It's in an idyllic location and there are so many interesting places and amazing walks nearby. We would definitely go there again! Kate S, 17 July 2016
  • We had the most relaxing and away from it all holiday in Cwm hill. I stayed with an adult with learning disabilities who found the cottage like a home from home as she lives in a Camphill it had everything we needed but nothing that we didn't -it's the best way to live. Hope to be back one day for sure! Misseasmallman , 10 July 2016
  • This is a really charming little cottage - the smell of woodsmoke as you walk in the door is just wonderful. It's a truly unique little place yet has all the modern equipment you would need for a long weekend. Didn't have any trouble finding it as the instructions were very clear. The only thing I could suggest as an improvment would be to have a couple of comfortable outside chairs - it was a bit of a shame in the sunshine to just have the bench to sit on (which wasn't the most comfortable!) Other than that, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and so did our dog - would definitely return. Helen B, 5 July 2016
  • We thoroughly enjoyed our break at Cwm Hill, it was a breath of fresh air to be out away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. I even managed to do some painting! We will definately be back to stay again, a home away from home. Thankyou UTT Racheal M, 19 June 2016
  • We had the most amazing break in this little cottage. Blessed with incredible weather we sat on the bench for breakfast and dinner every day watching the cows in the fields opposite. Being away from the usual huddle and bussle of daily life with no that's was wonderful. We really did not want to leave. Lorna Q, 12 June 2016
  • Had a wonderful week in the beautiful little cottage - very cosy, very romantic, and it's pink - what more could a girl want??!! Loved it - hope very much to come back again! Thank you x Mr clive mccormack , 4 June 2016
  • The cottage was gorgeous! Very privately located in the hills, so you are totally alone. Lovely views from the garden over the valley and wonderful for watching the swallows swooping over and the resident buzzards flying past. The cottage itself is very comfortable and the cosy wood burner heats the whole house very quickly. Good kitchen area with all you need (except ice tray!) and plenty of space. Very powerful shower and instant hot water. The bed is extremely comfortable and hard to get out of due to it's cosy nature! Love all the antique / vintage furnishings. Unfortunately we had bad weather so no stars for us but will return in the hope of some sunshine and clear nights. The area is stunning with so much to see and do. Will definitely be returning to this lovely little place - our favourite UTT so far! Lisa bonomini-glover , 27 May 2016
  • Wow! Love this place! Beautiful cottage in the beautiful countryside- what more could you ask for? We had such a great time- really didn't want to leave. Long weekends just aren't long enough! Joanna P, 9 May 2016
  • A wonderful traditional welsh cottage in a beautiful setting. We wanted a peaceful weekend away from it all and this is the place that fits the bill. Very cosy and romantic. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will definitely return. David T, 13 April 2016
  • Booked this lovely little cottage for 2 nights as a complete break from daily life. If you are looking for peace and solitude while being within easy reach of all Pembrokeshire attractions then this is the place for you. Nicola mason , 9 April 2016
  • A lovely relaxing holiday. Very windy and rainy but was hugged by the little cottage to keep us warm. Rhian T, 28 March 2016
  • The Pink Cottage is gorgeous! We've stayed before and will definitely be back again. Amazing location, remote enough to see the stars but near to many great places on the Pembrokeshire coastline. The near-by reservoir is great to visit too. All mod-cons, so simplicity and luxury rolled in to one. Allie saunders , 22 March 2016
  • Cwm Hill cottage is a fantastic little property, whether you want to get amongst some beautiful scenery or lock yourself away from the 'rat race'. Perfect location, fantastic accommodation and somewhere you will make plans to return to.... David R, 1 February 2016
  • We had a lovely relaxing Christmas staying in this cosy cottage. It was great sitting in front of the log burner with a book. The cottage is very secluded with lovely views. Solva and St David's were nice places we visited and recommended The Brewery Inn at Cosheston too - very welcoming and great food. We look forward to staying in this cottage again :-) Nicola C, 27 December 2015
  • Had lovely time at this cottage very peaceful and secluded will be visiting this place again very relaxing it's a total getaway from daily life. Absolutely fantastic. Bryron W, 13 December 2015
  • A beautiful cottage in a peaceful area, containing everything you would need for a complete getaway from it all in total seclusion. Perfect place to unwind ! Debra M, 5 December 2015
  • Second time staying here. Loved it even more than the first time. We'll be back for sure. Joe need , 18 November 2015
  • This was the most perfect little weekend away. New Moat is central to everything so it doesn't take long to get to the beautiful, dramatic coastlines and stunning walks. Cwm hill is such a romantic secluded little place and the stars are amazing! We were lucky with the weather with Wales seeing it's hottest November day ever but I would love to come back when the weather is stormy and just cwtch in front of the fire! Sally K, 6 November 2015
  • Thank you for the most amazing pink cottage.Everything was fantastic - a complete rest.It felt like our own world .Dogs loved it.Miss the peace and quiet already.I celebrated my birthday with a visit to St.Davids Cathedral - the list is endless.Thanks again.x Elaine B, 20 September 2015
  • A wonderful holiday at Cwm Hill. The cottage lived up to our expectations completely and we had our most relaxing holiday ever. It was so exciting to drive up the track and see the tiny pink cottage peeping up from a hollow. The cottage was furnished beautifully with a mix of old and new. We felt like we had stepped back in time. We will definitely be back and have recommended it to all our friends. A perfect romantic getaway! Susan foster , 19 September 2015
  • We loved the Cwm Hill cottage. Beautifully cute, well equipped, tasteful, practical and a great use of space we felt. Lovely open countryside, peace and time to breathe, we enjoyed its simplicity and calm. Bed upstairs a little small in length and not for tall people in general. Otherwise First Class. Naomi L, 27 August 2015
  • “The cottage was perfect it has been restored with great care and attention to details. The wood-burner was perfect, we had no problems lighting it and the cottage was soon warm. We had a wonderful stay exploring the Pembrokeshire coastal footpath.” Ian T. 14 August 2015
  • We loved the little cottage at Cwm Hill.....a peaceful retreat and a relaxing break. Cloudy evenings, so no stars, but birds including a flock of perhaps 100 wild geese streaming across the horizon. A great location for exploring both the north and south Pembrokeshire coasts.we know the area well having stayed in several other UTT cottages so visited some favourite haunts as well as exploring the Marloes peninsula and discovering the beautiful Musselwick sands. A couple of points..the cottage is described as having two acres of land to explore was difficult to work out what land belongs to Cwm Hill and the garden needed more weeding. But neither of the above in any way detracted from the enjoyment of the break in this charming little cottage. We would happily visit again. Christopher silkin , 9 August 2015
  • This was an amazing holiday, the house was beautiful and the walks and scenery were breath taking. We also found out we were expecting our first baby and it was the perfect place to celebrate! We have already recommended it to all our friends - who have booked to go and visit. We will definitely be returning ourselves! Sophie M, 7 August 2015
  • This is a lovely warm and comfy cottage to relax and star gaze weather permitting. Very peaceful and secluded from other properties. Ideal location to walk the Preseli Hills and explore the coastal paths. Lynne H, 26 July 2015
  • “The cottage is absolutely stunning, well equipped and perfect for my wife and I, plus one boisterous dog. The location is also beautiful, really really peaceful and relaxing! The interior has been well renovated and the use of space is really clever.” David 11 July 2015
  • "The pink cottage was a beautiful cottage, well equipped and very cosy. Located in a beautiful part of wales with so much to see and do! The cottage was very homely with a lovely log fire and modern kitchen and bathroom. We fell in love with this part of Wales and will definitely be back as soon as we can!" Julia 21 June 2015
  • If you're looking for total seclusion and to get away from it all, then this is the place! We just loved the feeling of being the only people in the world! Firing up the woodburner and watching the flames was really therapeutic. There was everything we needed at the cottage. It was in such a beautiful setting and so nice to have no noise from anywhere. The stars on our last night were mesmerizing. You could spin around on the spot and the whole sky was filled with them in every direction. It is a basic and cold cottage and getting upstairs isn't for anyone with mobility problems. But it's worth putting up with this to stay in such a tranquil and romantic place. Sarah A, 17 June 2015
  • “We stayed in this little cottage for one week, and it was just perfect. Everything went very smooth from the booking up to the key collection thanks to the thorough information we received in advance. The cottage itself was exactly as seen on the pictures, and we just loved its secluded location. The stars at night were amazing and during the day we heard nothing else than the birds singing. We definitely would recommend to stay here and will come back ourselves!” Meike Rosshoop 4 June 2015
  • Amazing holiday. Cottage was in a stunning location, so beautiful & tranquil. The log burner was so nice to use, the bed was so comfy and everything was perfectly clean, ready for us to use. Also surprised at how easy it was to find and access considering this cottage really is in the middle of the countryside! I just wish I lived there! Only 20/30 mins away in 3 directions from the coast, perfect cottage, perfect location, perfect holiday! 10/10! Vicky W, 27 May 2015
  • "We had a fabulous, relaxing break. Sitting in the sunshine enjoying the view & nothing but birdsong was bliss - we even got sunburnt! The cottage was perfect for us both & our puppy - equipped with everything we needed including a cafetière, a powerful hot shower, snuggly wood burner & cosy bed. Loved the quirkiness of this property & the isolation was just what we wanted. Added bonuses were two clear nights for stargazing & an early morning fox visit. Can't wait to return, thanks." Jacqui Parkin 19 May 2015
  • Had a lovely short break..first time in wales/pembrokeshire,the cottage was a perfect base to explore the whole area which is a truly beautiful part of wales. Our break was made all the more special knowing we had such a quaint and cosy place to come back to and settle in for nights of stargazing and relaxing. would recommend to anyone thinking of staying in pembrokeshire John H, 17 May 2015
  • "In a wonderfully peaceful location, this cottage had all the mod cons we needed, great kitchen & shower, lovely log burner and a super comfortable bed. We took this break to relax and that's exactly what we did. The star gazing was a delight! We enjoyed an easy walk to the nearby reservoir and breathtaking views from the coastal path from Abercastle. We'll definitely be back to further explore gorgeous Pembrokeshire. Joyfully recommended!" Allie Saunders from New York 10 May 2015
  • "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 1 July 2014
  • "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) 1 July 2014
  • "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 1 July 2014



'Top 2016 UK Romantic Weekend Break' - Stylist Magazine

'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'.

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 three-year rescue project provides a cottage full of character, mixing antique furnishings with modern conveniences. 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.

At the lake you can hire bikes and take a trip around the water (6km) on safe tracks. Read an independent 5* guest review.
