CUSTOMER REVIEWS
  • 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 ...it 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
 
INFORMATION

'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.

Vodaphone and 3 and T-Mobile reception in cottage (possibly also other networks) Short run of reasonably steep stairs to upstairs, which has restricted headroom in parts. The antique oak double bed is 6" narrower than a modern standard double. The property is reached by a largely level, gravelled but otherwise unmade track which is suitable for all but the lowest-slung of sports cars.
