Cottage
Described by our visitors as 'cosy, spacious and full of charm', Tilley's Cottage is an original stone-built cart shed. It was converted in 2001 when several of the original fittings were found and left inside as features. Some of the inner stone walls remain exposed and the large stone arch is an impressive feature in the lounge. As Tilley's is a converted cart shed, it is located next door to our farm house - but even so it has privacy. The front entrance and patio area are not overlooked and a large portion of the garden is the same. The outer door leads into a porch with separate WC. From the porch, two steps lead directly up into the large airy lounge which has a vaulted ceiling with pegged beams and exposed stone walls. The furniture compris...

It was converted in 2001 when several of the original fittings were found and left inside as features. Some of the inner stone walls remain exposed and the large stone arch is an impressive feature in the lounge. As Tilley's is a converted cart shed, it is located next door to our farm house - but even so it has privacy. The front entrance and patio area are not overlooked and a large portion of the garden is the same. The outer door leads into a porch with separate WC. From the porch, two steps lead directly up into the large airy lounge which has a vaulted ceiling with pegged beams and exposed stone walls. The furniture comprises an L-shaped sofa seating six, a wooden carver chair, open hearth with wood burner (logs provided), flat screen internet TV, well stocked shelves of local history books & walking guides. Adjoining the lounge is a well-equipped kitchen-diner , with oven, hob and grill; fridge-freezer, dishwasher; microwave; sink and drainer; worktops & storage cupboards, dining table and chairs for up to six people. The kitchen is normally stocked with 'essentials' - teabags, coffee, sugar, basic herbs and spices - but due to Covid restrictions we can't currently supply any food or drink items - sorry! Other essentials, though, we can leave for you - dishwashing cloths, kitchen roll, tea towels and cleaning materials. From the kitchen there are full-width patio doors leading out onto a completely private patio area with beautiful garden, countryside and sea views. The family bathroom has a full suite, a roomy separate shower and two heated towel rails. Toilet rolls and liquid hand soap are provided. All three bedrooms (a double, a twin and a bunk - top bunk 2’6”) have comfortable mattresses with good quality bedding (bed linen included), and also have large built-in wardrobes. The double room has lovely sea views. Outside Tilley's is a gated courtyard parking area large enough for two cars, and to the side is a lawned garden bordered by Pembrokeshire hedge banks. There is a small lean-to stable at the end of the Cottage which houses a washing machine, the barbecue and spare logs. Heating and hot water are supplied via an oil-fired boiler and there are fully controllable electric heaters in the bedrooms. Free WiFi available. Logs for the woodburner are provided free of charge. Well-behaved pets are welcome by arrangement at no extra charge. Changeover day is FRIDAY but can often be altered if you check with us. More

About the neighbourhood
The area around Tilley's Cottage is a stunning mix of countryside and coastline. Access to the coast path is a mile away. The Strumble Shuttle coastal bus service (from right outside the cottage gate) can be used to get to a start point and walk back without you having to use your car. There are two good pubs within half an hours walk from the cottage - The Sloop at Porthgain and The Ship Inn at Trefin. Porthgain is a pretty harbour village - once a thriving industrial area, it now has two interesting art galleries and an award-winning restaurant. Two miles from Tilleys is Abereiddy beach with toilet facilities, parking and a refreshments van selling locally produced food (open Easter to October half term). Next to Abereiddy is the famous blue lagoon where the Red Bull World Cliff Diving ...
Getting around
The Strumble Shuttle, route 404, walkers bus service runs on varying days in summer and winter. Check out the timetable online. You can stop any bus right outside the cottage gate, ride along to a coastal location between St David's and Fishguard - and walk back to the cottage along the coast path and country lanes. There is also a regular bus service between Fishguard and St David's from Monday to Saturday - Traws Cymru route T11.
