About the local area

Why not adventure to the island itself? - one of Wales' most breathtaking nature reserves. Thousand Islands Expeditions based in St Davids, just half an hour's drive away, will take you through Ramsey's swirling currents to land on this incredible RSPB island. During the boat trip you're likely to see a multitude of sea birds, porpoises, dolphins and Atlantic Grey seals. On the island itself, take the chance to join the warden for the day to discover the wildlife, the island's history and what it's like to live and work in such a remote place.  There's also plenty of adventure to be had on the doorstep. A wander into the wild, open and ancient landscape of the Preseli Hills can't be missed. Rising to 536m (1,760ft), the hills reward you with breathtaking views of Cardigan Bay and on a clear day, even of Ireland. The Tafarn Sinc provides a great venue for lunches or evening meals if out walking locally. Just a mile and a half from the cottage, this unique establishment it prides itself on serving a hearty, traditional menu from the best of local produce. The highest licensed pub in Pembrokeshire, it's a place of nostalgic originality and draws its custom from far and wide. Having enjoyed the view and walks around the local Rosebush reservoir, why not visit her big sister a few miles south at Llys y Fran Country Park. This 212 acre man-made lake supplies most of Pembrokeshire's drinking water and is the largest game fishery in South West Wales. It's open for both fly and bait fishing and is regularly restocked from on-site rearing cages. The beautiful woodland setting of Lys y Fran offers trails for both walkers and cyclists with mountain bike hire available. The children's adventure play area and licensed restaurant and coffee shop provide the ideal spot to recover from any exertion. An amble through some of the way-marked routes of the Gwaun Valley shouldn't be missed either. From your doorstep, the eight mile wooded valley that wends its way north westerly to Fishguard, is known by many, as the land that time forgot. Its steep sides and long-established mixed oak woods give an idea of how most of Wales would have once looked. You can't fail to appreciate the ancient charm and peaceful pace of the Gwaun Valley but many visit for just one reason – a trip to Bessie's. The Dyffryn Arms at Pontfaen; a simple front room, a dozen chairs, two church pews and fire place, has been owned by Bessie Davies' family for 170 years. From her hatch in the wall, 80 year old Bessie, dressed in her trademark apron, is always ready to chat and serve a pint which she decants into a jug from the only barrel.  For coastal days, the small, medieval coastal town of Newport is just eight miles away. With its vast sands and quiet air of sophistication, it has all that you'd expect to find in such a place; galleries, antiques, restaurants, cafes, water sports and much more but without the trappings of mass tourism. It boasts both a Norman castle and church which stand proudly above the ancient streets and pathways which lead directly to the River Nevern Estuary which teems with wildlife. The Newport Links Golf Course and Resort offers a superb venue not only for golf and fantastic food but also for watching the sunset across a vast vista; from the beach to the Preseli Hills. The sights, experiences and facilities on offer within half an hour's drive of Ramsey are both vast and diverse: numerous castles, incredible beaches, nature reserves, gardens, zoos, coastal paths, quaint seaside towns and villages offering water sports of every kind, pony trekking, theme parks and even a chocolate factory and a vineyard to visit. But on returning to Ramsey, after the many adventures there are to be had, you can't fail to appreciate the tranquillity, comfort and convenience it offers.

What our customers say about The Old Coach House - Ramsey

Wolfgang Sagur -

very individual service, marvellous garden surrounding


C Lowry -

Just as described. Immaculately clean. Well stocked kitchen with bin bags, washing up liquid, dishwasher tablets etc. We need not have brought any of that as cottages in the past have supplied nothing of the little extras and it makes the holiday more enjoyable as we know that the owners have been thoughtful. We were greeted by the owner and she had left milk in the fridge, fresh flowers, chocolates and Welsh cakes, all these adding to a personal touch that made the start to our stay all the more special.
