Newport, Southern Wales, Wales
BARGAIN PRICES 2017 Pencraig is ideally located for a great holiday or short break. It takes seven minutes to walk down the lane to the beach, leading to Dinas Island, voted AA 'Walk of the Year'. Two bedrooms sleep four people - one double and a twin bed room. This north coast of Pembrokeshire remains wild and unspolit. The cottage is at the edge of the village which has a shop, garage and three good pubs, one with a good restaurant is down on the beach. The whole Pembrokeshire coast is a natural attraction. The heather and hills in the National Park are just a mile or so away and there's no better town than Newport which is just 3 miles from the cottage with its huge beach and dunes, an 18 hole links golf course, a friendly boat club.
Pencraig is a stone built cottage dating back a century or two. There's gas...

Management response:

So pleased the break was what you wanted! You describe the things I appreciate about the place when I go to stay there myself. Always walk to the beach before breakfast and then find myself walking further along the coastal path.

We stayed at Pencraig for a week and absolutely loved the location. It's a 10 minute walk (downhill) to the beaches and the circular walk round was really great with fab views. The cottage had everything we needed and had a lovely log fire which was perfect after a day of sightseeing and walking the coastal paths. Pembrokeshire is such...

Management response:

I'm glad you had a good time and enjoyed the log fire. The Pembs coastline has such variety and is also so extensive it never seems busy.

About the neighbourhood
Riding, boats and swimming, walking, and some great off-road bike trails make N Pembs a place for where you can enjoy activities at reasonable prices and without crowds. There's a lot of culture, Brynhenllan village having a number of well known artists as residents. The St Davids music festival in the cathedral, the Fishguard Music Festival and other music activities such as Cardigan Eisteddfod, male voice choirs all provide different and memorable evenings. Being outside busy Newport can be a bonus in the summer season. You can borrow my 14ft Skipper dinghy if you're a competent sailor. There is a bike at the cottage, and another available.
