about the property

Just 300 yards from a secret cove / beach near the lighthouse on Strumble Head in Pembrokeshire, this traditional Pembrokeshire holiday cottage has plenty of space for all the family in the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park.

Bwthyn Tresinwen enjoys an enviable and peaceful position near the famous lighthouse on Ynys Meicl. This semi-detached Pembrokeshire cottage doesn't have sea views but you catch glimpses from the garden, or a 5-minute walk down to Porthsychan cove. A treat for anyone who enjoys coastal walking (some of the best in the UK), spotting wildlife (seals, dolphins, seabirds, whales if lucky), and relaxing in beautiful surroundings or by an open fire.

travel info

There is a Strumble Shuttle (404) from Fishguard which stops fairly nearby (Google 'Strumble shuttle' for timetables), but the only trains to Fishguard are twice a day to the ferry terminal (Fishguard Harbour) arriving at 13.15 and, less helpfully, 01.26! There are plenty of trains to Haverfordwest and buses from there to Fishguard.

in detail

The cottage can sleep 8, though as it has just one large bathroom we consider it as suitable only for 6 adults maximum. The cottage is centrally heated throughout. There is a cot and high chair available at the property.

Ground Floor:

Cegin Fach: Modern kitchen with everything you'd expect. Slate worksurfaces, Belfast (half size) sink, electric cooker, washing machine and microwave. Dining table with views.

Cegin Fawr: An open fire makes the main lounge snug. You can be traditional and use the fireside settles, or opt for a comfortable modern sofa. CD radio/ stereo. Television (Freeview). Books, toys and DVDs for children.

Master Bedroom: Large room with cast iron Victorian double bedstead and 'chaise lounge', just a couple of steps from the bathroom.

Bedroom 2: A large single bedroom with views to the front, and steepish steps up to bedroom 3.

Bathroom: A large family bathroom with some nice antique sanitaryware. Bath with shower over. Towels provided.


First Floor:

Bedroom 3 is a fairly small single loft room directly off bedroom 2 below. Probably best for a child. Lit by skylights with views.

Bedroom 4 is the largest bedroom and has a double bed and two singles. Lit by skylights with views.



Pretty garden and lawn to the front. Garden furniture.

Large secluded lawn area to rear where you can relax and enjoy the fine views, listening to see if you can hear the sea.

customer reviews for Bwthyn Tresinwen

This cottage is in a lovely and tiny hamlet, a short walk to the lighthouse - a fantastic setting. The cottage itself is extremely spacious, well decorated and looked after, warm and cosy (especially with the open fire - powder pellets were provided but we went and bought proper firewood which burns much better) and a super comfy master bedroom bed (the only one we used) under a lovely heavy welsh wool blanket. The only downside was in the kitchen, which had most basic utensils and implements but was missing any spatulas and had a lack of lids for pots and pans. There was no welcome pack of any sort, say with tips on the local area, so do that prep yourselves. All in all, a fine place to stay!

We had a lovely stay at your Welsh cottage in Tresinwen. We had a fire every night which was great but as the temperature had dropped we could have had the cottage warmer with some heating. We had 4 walks in the area but needed a large scale map of the vicinity. Provision of maps would be very helpful as there are many footpaths and it is a place for hikers. Thanks. .

We had a lovely time at Bwthyn Tresinwen. The cottage is postcard picture perfect, beautifully clean inside with everything you will need. The garden is also gorgeous and well cared for. We loved the location of the cottage, perfect for a stroll to Strumble Head lighthouse and for reaching the coastal path. The little cove a 10 minute walk away is amazing, we saw seals on the two days we went down. Thank you very much for a wonderful stay, this is our second time in these fantastic cottages and we very much hope to return again.

Tresinwen is a truly beautiful spot. The cottage is a really special Welsh experience. We had a great time. We saw seals and Dolphins and walked along cliffs and swam in the Blue Lagoon at Aberreidy.

Bwthyn has been lovingly renovated and is in a small hamlet of mainly similar period cottages right out on Strumble Head. There are clifftop walks in both directions along the Pembrokeshire Coastal path and, if you're lucky, seals in the cove. Even in January there is plenty to keep you interested, fed and occupied in the area. Thoroughly recommended.

A lovely stay in West Wales. The cottage is in a cluster of farm cottages . Nice and cosy. A stroll through the lane to Strumble Head lighthouse or along the coastal path. A drive in to Fishguard but we had a great time during our weekend.

The best thing about the cottage is it’s location just a very short walk from the coastal pathway. We had some memorable walks right from the door and saw seals everyday in the little cove nearby. The lighthouse at night was very special. The cottage itself is very attractive but needs a little re-thinking to truly cater for the maximum number of people it can accommodate. A party of five would be fine but anymore becomes a challenge in terms of there not being enough chairs, big enough saucepans or fridge space. However it is wonderfully peaceful despite being semidetached to another holiday let and in close proximity to two others and we were outdoors all day every day in the stunning surroundings. Would happily recommend for location and feel of the place.

We loved this cottage, snuggled in a hamlet with a lovely sheltered garden. We had an action-packed holiday, Kayaking with Kayak king in Fishguard (lots of seals), horse riding at the local stables, obviously great coastal walks, and lovely food at Rose & Crown. The jazz festival was impressive and friendly too. Liked St Davids and Cardigan, and St Dogmaels pottery.
