Ty Gaer is a fabulous holiday accomodatiion, right by the sea. The standard of accommodation is excellent. The owners have taken great care to ensure the highest standards of all the rooms, from the showers, to the comfortable beds. The accommodation is dog friendly, but you would never guess that dogs have stayed in the house and I would still rent this place even if I didn't have a dog. There is another holiday let owned by the same people, Jennie and Simon, right next door to Ty Gaer but we couldn't hear the family of four that were staying, the wall are very thick and the respective gardens are very separate, so we hardly saw them.
You are right next to the coastal path and we spent a number of evenings, just a few metres from the house, sitting and looking out to the sea with a glass of wine; no-one is around, it's so peaceful and you really do have that coastal path to yourselves, it is paradise.
We ate in Angle a few times, it's about a 15 minute walk to the beach with a great cafe on the beachfront, Wavecrest cafe which is open until 4pm, serving really good quality food. We also ate at the two pubs in Angle, both really good food and very friendly : the Hibernian Inn and the Old Point House.
Location wise, Ty Gaer is in a great place to visit South Pembrokeshire, Freshwater East and West, Stackpole, (Stackpole Inn serves good food) Barafundle Bay, Tenby. We also travelled to North Pembrokeshire and walked the coastal path from Marloes and also Porthgain and Abereiddy . The Shed Bistro at Porthgain also served fab food.
It was a great week away and we struck gold in finding Ty Gaer.
This was our 3rd visit to East Blockhouse, but first time to Ty Gaer having stayed in the 2-bed Ty Haf previously. We have 3 kids aged 7-9 and they loved the space, the ponies, exploring the fort, Dylan the dog, and the TVs in the bedroom!! The chocolate Easter bunnies on arrival were a lovely extra touch (plus a welcome bottle of wine & welshcakes for us!) Although it's well off the beaten path and looks unusual from the outside, inside, the under floor heating, spacious layout and attention to detail make it feel special. The views from both sides are stunning. There's a well-appointed kitchen, books, board games & Wi-Fi plus a games-room & free laundry next door. The local beach is never too busy, perfect for rock-pooling and paddling, with a great little cafe. It's an easy walk down along the beautiful coastal path. We also loved exploring Barafundle and Stackpole which are within 20-30 mins drive and both stunning. Jennie & Simon have a wealth of suggestions for days out in Pembrokeshire having explored it all with their own kids. We really love it here and will definitely be back again. If you want local amenities, it's probably not for you (although Asda do deliver!) but if you want to enjoy a touch of wilderness in peace & comfort, then I would definitely recommend it!
