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. 

The cottage is perhaps more basic than some we advertise, but we think it provides good value for this location, and we love the fact that you can walk to the shore.

See sister property Hafan Tresinwen if you would like to book both cottages together.

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.

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.

The cottage was fantastic and just what we needed. Cozy and warm and a really hot shower. We loved the walk to the cove and coastal path that was on the doorstep and the views from the garden were beautiful. We will book again.

Bwthyn gwych mewn bendigedig o le/ a fantastic cottage in a wonderful place. We didn't think it was "basic" at all - very comfortable, roomy, and atmospheric, with everything we could have needed (except perhaps a grater :-)). Lovely snug sitting room for the whole family for the evenings, ravens overhead and seals swimming in the cove just a few minutes walk away. Very friendly owners, would definitely go again.

We have just returned from a delightful weekend at Bwythyn Tresinwen. The cottage was very comfortable and we enjoyed exploring the area. It was particularly lovely unplugging the children and sitting back to watch them enjoy games together. We would recommend this cottage as a place to reset and recharge. Diolch yn fawr x

I've stayed at Bwthyn Tresinwen and its sister cottage several times and this was as lovely as always. Comfortable and immaculately clean- really comfortable and welcoming and with the wonderful peace and quiet that characterises the setting.

Bwthyn Tresinwen is an authentic and beautifully restored cottage. We reminisced about my grandparents farming lives and wonderful memories of my childhood came flooding back. We all really enjoyed the atmosphere created by the antiques and cosy fires every evening after long walks along the coastal path. Watching the seals, dolphins and glorious sunsets at Strumble Head was amazing. No wifi was a blessing and the owners are lovely and very helpful. It was magical and we will definitely return.

Perfectly situated cottage with stunning coastal walks, a magical seal cove and no internet signal, bliss! We are a family of four and struggle to imagine fitting anymore people around the kitchen table although there is bedroom space for more. DVDs were certainly provided but no DVD player... A great break for anyone reconnecting with nature and the simple things in life such as crabbing, swimming and watching the sunset.

Fabulous cottage. Spacious but cosy and plenty of storage. The location is spectacular and we enjoyed many sunsets overlooking strumble head.

Fantastic location & beautiful cottage . Deceptive as to a size from the outside - like a tardis inside . Beautifully appointed , cove a short walk & Strumblehead lighthouse . Very friendly & welcoming host . Only downside was main double bed a little like a brick in consistency - although this may be down to us (both have bad backs) rather than the mattress - others may be fine . Regardless we would return in a flash . Lovely stay & we plan to be back .

We had a wonderful holiday, the cottage was wonderful, so warm and clean and very spacious situated in the most fabulous spot and easily walkable to the lighthouse and Pembrokeshire Coastal path. Would definitely recommend it.

We had a really great holiday at this cottage. You're totally off grid with no wifi and signal but it was nice break from technology. The kids absolutely loved their stay too and lots of lovely memories were made. Thanks for having us!

Thank you so much for such a lovely place to stay. Beautifully appointed inside and out made even more brilliant by the lack of WiFi and mobile phone signal! That was really important for us because it meant that me and my wife were not able to check in on work, my daughter could actually get away from her final year studies for a few days, my son could get away from his A-Level studies and my daughter's boyfriend could get away from his PhD studies as well which meant we actually had a proper break. This was our belated break that we should have had at Christmas but with beautiful weather and countryside we could not have wished for more & Tess The Dog loved bathing in the sunshine by the doorway! The only thing that was a bit annoying was the dining table was a squeeze for five. Considering that we were meant to be a party of six (my other son couldn't come because of his assessments) and the cottage is able to sleep seven the dining room table would not have been able to seat that number and I am not sure that there were enough dining chairs for seven either. Otherwise a wonderful stay and we will be back!

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.

- Rena K,
July 2018

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.

Lovely break at this pretty cottage. Beautiful countryside and wildlife... seals in the nearby cove. Great walks and stunning beaches

We had a wonderful stay at this very cosy cottage. A lovely location with a short walk down to a quiet cove which was perfect for children. We loved exploring the local area including the lighthouse and ancient forts. The cottage has everything we needed and was very peaceful. We plan to return again. Thank you.

We had a wonderful time in this cosy cottage. It was in a beautiful location and we loved exploring the nearby seal cove and walking on the coastal path. The cottage itself was just right for a family: enough space, all the amenities you'd want and a lovely real fire that we lit every night! Great!

We had a truly cosy and relaxing stay at Bwthyn Tresinwen. We loved how higgledy-piggledy it is and were so surprised how warm it was. Plenty of kitchen equipment and lots of space. We had some lovely walks along the coastline and can highly recommend The Bug Farm near St Davids! Excellent. The open fire and cosy lounge were a real treat to come back to.

Had a fantastic time. Cottage had everything we needed and the location was even better than we could imagine. We saw seals and dolphins from the coastal path and had trips to different secluded beaches. All great for children with toilets and good facilities. The cottage is away from it all but you are never far away from civilisation. We will definitely like to return and recommend to friends.

Bwthyn Tresinwen will forever stay in our memories as it was where our three year old son first saw seals swim in their natural habitat, in a nearby secret cove. If you're looking for a home-from-home, set in spectacular surroundings then this is the place for you. We'll certainly be making a return visit, very soon.

Fab cottage.. Beautifully laid out, plenty of space for the 7 of us. Blessed with gorgeous weather so had plenty of long walks and days by the beach. Would def love to return.. Our sons, 11,11 and 8 all had a lovely time.

This cottage was absolutely beautiful. The children were spoilt for choice in terms of which bedrooms they slept in. The open fire was a real treat and the children toasted marshmallows on it every evening. The cottage was warm, cosy and well equipped and incredibly peaceful. It was close to a beach and lots of interesting walks. We would all thoroughly recommend it.

Really lovely mini break. The location is beautiful. It was warm and sunny so breakfast outside was a real treat. Saw a seal, adder , horses and birds of prey during half hour walk to Strumble Head. The house is very cosy and well equipped. Enjoyed the break and will recommend to all. Jess and Kevin. April 2015

We arrived with lots of hats, gloves, woolly jumpers and blankets and spent the holiday on the beach swimming (most of us!) , exploring rock pools, being watched by seals and realising theres just not enough time to walk up to the rocky ridges and along the coast, so we'll have to come back again. The house was really lovely, cosy, warm, well equipped and perfect to come back to tired and hungry. Thank you. Emily, Casper and Otis - Bristol - April 2015

"When we arrived we were tired and stressed from work. Just six days later we feel like we have been on holiday for a month. The perfect antedote to our busy lives; a welcoming cottage by the coast with plenty of lovely walks from the door. Particularly enjoyed the boat trip over to Ramsay Island. A fantastic week!" ~ Jenny, John & Henry (1)
