Bryn y Wawr

Newport, Pembrokeshire

For walkers, golfers, painters, well-behaved dogs, kids and seekers of peace – a fresh lovely cottage in the heart of Newport, Pembs


2 bedrooms


Sleeps 4


Up-and-coming – or up-and-come – is Newport. It’s a little town inland from the rugged North Coast, with an arty, let’s-escape-the-city air. At the sleepy end of town, at the top of a peaceful street, with views across the rooftops to hills and sea, is this charming stone cottage, sympathetically renovated and beautifully maintained. Enter a big, bright, Scandinavian-style space, all whites with subtle accents of colour, new oak floors and painted beams, characterful fabrics and furniture: a button-back armchair, a nut-brown leather sofa. At the far end is the kitchen – the hub of the house. Upstairs are the bedrooms, cosy with seaside colours, enormous beds and plump white duvets. Find flowers on arrival, tea, coffee, milk, a bottle of wine, and logs for cosy nights in. The sunny garden across the lane is a treat in the summer. Come with the kids: Newport Sands is a big breezy beach that you can drive your car on to; Newport Parrog beach is tidal, with a slipway for boat launching and a lively boat club. Great pubs, fascinating shops and little eateries are a five-minute walk… try the Llys Meddyg, or the Golden Lion.

The neighbourhood

Local points of interest from Caroline Crofts

  • Forget the car - you're a ten minute stroll from the Pembrokeshire Coast path. Take your binoculars for the bird life on the estuary, laze away some hours on the beach, hire a kayak, or explore the dramatic cliff top scenery.
  • Or head for the hills - climb up to Carn Ingli for a panoramic view - you might see Snowdon on a clear day. Or explore the Preseli Hills by horseback or bike, before heading home to one of the friendly local pubs, cafes or restaurants.
  • The local Spar never seems to shut, but there is also a bakers, with bread and barm brack baked on the premises, a butchers and fishmongers, a great deli, as well as a post office and chemist. Check out the wide variety of local art and crafts too.
  • On a Monday morning, the adjacent street is closed for the lively market, selling tempting local food, plants and crafts - pick up a souvenir or linger over a coffee at one of the lively cafes.
  • If you prefer to explore further afield, the popular Gwaun Valley, with its local brewery and valley walks, are a short drive away, or visit Pentre Ifan, the nearby historic burial chamber, or Castell Henllys, an iron age fort.
  • Alternatively, spend some time discovering the ancient city of St Davids, with it's beautiful cathedral - look out for the queens seat and take a break at the popular cafe, before heading home to your cosy cottage.
