This is a beautiful cottage with its own garden surrounded by countryside.The cottage is warm and cosy and spotlessly clean with a great kitchen. It's an easy journey to Cardigan, Newport, Fishguard and the coast but it's also a great place to walk locally or just to stay in relaxing. There are so many interesting places to visit locally.

It's a lovely place Very nice helpful owners I loved the kitchen Everything you could think of is supplied Super bed Only drawback is the access from the road .. it's very bumpy with potholes.

Management response:

So glad you enjoyed it here, the track is a bit bumpy at the moment as the heavy rain has washed away a lot of the stone. It's repair is on the list of things to do with all our neighbours as we share the track with other households. It's ok if you go very slowly I always do it...

Nestling under the shadow of the Preseli Mountains in the National Park, among 8 acres of a loving tendered small holding land, this is as good as it gets. If you are looking to get away from it all, stay in a beautiful and immaculately appointed little residence, then this is for you. No kidding. The Old Pottery features a...

Additional amenities & feature info
The cottage is laid out in a studio-style with open rafters, natural stone walls and stained glass windows. The entrance goes into the kitchen/dining room which is well equipped for the enthusiastic or casual cook with a gas hob/electric grill and oven. The fridge has an ice box for a small amount of frozen food and there is a wood burning stove and a pulley clothes airer.

Stepping through the archway, in a very thick stone wall, is the rest of the cottage. We have tried to think of everything you might need for relaxation or poor weather days. There are plenty of books, games, films and CDs to enjoy. The comfortable double bed has a cosy, king-size quilt and plump pillows.

The separate shower-room has constant hot water and a heated towel radiator with plenty of towels.

About the neighbourhood
From the door of The Old Pottery you can walk straight out on to the Preselis. The bluestones of Stonehenge come from Pembrokeshire’s Preseli Hills, and were hewn from the rugged tor of Carn Menyn. Close to Carn Menyn runs the Golden Road, an ancient track that would have been a main trade route between Wessex and Ireland when bears and wolves still roamed the valleys.

Nearby, Iron Age earthworks and burial cairns adorn a loftier summit. A stone circle named Beddarthur (Arthur’s Grave), draws attention to the legend of the Mabinogion. Arthur and his knights crossed the ridge and fought Twrch Trwyth, the magic boar, on Cwmcerwyn.
History and legend aside, walking in the Preseli Hills makes a refreshing interlude from the stunning coast path. The views from the tops seem to go on forever.
Getting around
A car is recommended. There is a great bus service along the coast very convenient for coast patch walking,. We usually park our car, catch the bus then walk back to the car so we are not under any time pressure.

We are in a fairly remote rural location 400m up a rough track and through a shallow river ford. Don't worry, it's all drivable in a normal car and you can park a few feet from the front door. We have an alternative parking spot on the other side of the ford on the rare occasion that the river rise after heavy rain. The level goes down very fast once the rain stops. We send you detailed directions so you can find us easily.
