The hills are your first insight into what you are about to encounter, don't let the bumpy track put you off as we did it in our Skoda and you get used to it after a couple of drives, it is worth it for what you are about to behold. Cosy, comfy, home from home, cute and adorable cottage. Perfect...

Management response:

It was a pleasure to have you here and what an active week you had. You covered lots of ground, but there is still masses to do here in Pembrokeshire. Next time perhaps try to fit in a trip to Skomer. June or July are great times to go there to see puffins and masses of other bird life. Hope...

If you are looking for an 'off the beaten track' location, then The Old Pottery is just the place. Wonderful for walking on the Preseli hills right outside your door, or a short drive to anywhere in Pembrokeshire and south Wales. The Cottage is beautiful, with everything you would need if you feel like a restful, peaceful break. I cannot...

Additional amenities & feature info
The cottage is laid out in a studio-style with open rafters, natural stone walls and stained glass windows.<BR><BR>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.<BR><BR>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.

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.<BR><BR>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.<BR>History and legend aside, walking in the Preseli Hills makes a refreshing interlude from the stunning coast path. The views from the t... more
