about the property

Traditional Pembrokeshire family holiday cottage in the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park near Strumble Head lighthouse, this wonderful cottage is just a 5 minute walk from Porth Sychan, a private cove where you often see seals.

A cosy coastal cottage, Hafan 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 door, or a 5-minute walk down to Porthsychan cove. One of the best locations in all of Pembrokeshire. A family friendly cottage that is also a retreat for anyone who enjoys coastal walking (some of the best in UK), spotting wildlife (seals, dolphins, sea birds, whales if lucky), and relaxing in beautiful surroundings.

customer reviews for Hafan Tresinwen

Our short break in Pembrokeshire was delightful. The Cottage is very comfortable, well cleaned and definitely a warm haven to return to each evening. It is in an excellent location on Strumble Head, ideal for exploring the cost line between St Davids and Newport - much of which we walked. As beautiful as Cornwall but far less people, so perfect for us.

We had a lovely weekend at this cosy comfortable cottage. Walks along the coastal past and to the lighthouse at Strumble Head. Counting seals into double figures every day. We were so lucky with the weather too.

The cottage was wonderful in so many ways: five minutes walk to the beach and fantastic coast path, lovely garden to eat breakfast, comfortable with everything we needed. For us it was a bonus to have no phone signal or WiFi so as to properly get away from it all.

We absolutely loved our stay at Hafan Tresinwen. What an incredibly special place - it's magical. Perfect for our little family, a wonderful location, exactly the calm and respite we needed this year. We hope to be back! Thank you.

Brilliant holiday in perfect cottage. Great, secluded spot. 15 mins walk to lighthouse and 10 mins down to a little dive where we saw seals twice. Well equipped and cosy cottage. Garden got the sun until late as well. Would gladly stay again.

Excellent, cosy and comfortable cottage. Spotlessly clean with all the facilities we required to make the most of a lovely quiet family weekend. The owners are very friendly and happy to help, we slept so well in the beds amid the silence of the countryside. We hope to return! Thank you so much!

The cottage and surrounding areas where absolutely brilliant. It was extremely cute, clean and relaxed and I would recommend the cottage to anyone. The short walk to the coast and lighthouse made for wonderful evenings, allowing us to watch sunrises and sunsets. Really beautiful cottage and we will be back!

Cottage was very comfortable, clean, well equipped. The area is beautiful. 15 mins walk down to the lighthouse and rugged coastline. Nearest shops are in Goodwick (15 mins by car). Porth Sychan cove/beach around 8 mins walk down through the farm is absolutely lovely. We were privileged to see a baby seal pup on the beach, being cared for by its mum. Went down to see him every day, then on our last day watched him get in the water and swim off with his mum. Magic. The walk from Goodwick over to Fishguard is a nice way to spend an afternoon. Thankyou.

Gorgeous cottage, great location and everything you could need within. We cooked at the cottage after days out, this was home from home and more! The cove that’s a 10 min walk was just glorious, was great to swim (albeit cold sea) with a seal or two bobbing about, the lighthouse walk at sunset was phenomenal!! We will be back!

Really gorgeous cottage in a stunning part of Pembrokeshire! Especially loved walks to the cove and to the lighthouse, the cosines of the living room and the thought that had gone into the decoration of the cottage. An ideal location for us between Fishguard and Saint David’s. We hope to return!
