Discover Gamekeepers Cottage, nestled within the glorious Pembrokeshire countryside and just a few minutes’ walk from the quaint hamlet of Newchapel, with a fantastic pub nearby with local ales to sample. This unique and characterful chocolate box property was once the local gamekeepers cottage for Pentre Mansion, and has been in the same family for many years. This semi-detached cottage has been meticulously restored back to its former glory with traditional Welsh building methods.

2 miles away is the village of Abercych, where you can visit the local inn and enjoy truly superb food, specializing in local home cooked produce and set in a magnificent setting alongside the Cych River, where you can dine al-fresco on a warm summer’s day. The market town of Cardigan is around a 10 minutes’ drive away where you will find a plethora of boutique shops, cafes, gift shops and a theatre along with the coastal path that runs through Cardigan. Here you can join the 186 miles of Pembrokeshire National Park coastal footpath, where you can take in this truly beautiful coastline.

This characterful and quirky cottage has been finished to a good standard throughout and offers the perfect romantic retreat. As you enter this cottage you will see the owner’s efforts to retain the original features, including exposed stone, lime walls, original beams and quarry tiled flooring. Enjoy dining in front of the wood burner and then retiring to the cosy living room with a glass of wine, or enjoy sitting out on the patio beneath the stars. On the first floor the bedroom has been lovingly furnished complete with original wooden flooring and leading into an en-suite bathroom, where you can soak in the cast iron, roll-top bath whilst enjoying a good read - the ultimate in relaxation.

The Welsh Wildlife Centre and Teifi Marshes Nature Reserve, run by the Wildlife Trust, is really not to be missed, home to one of the best wetland sites in Wales. Cenarth Falls are just a 5-minute drive, and a short drive north is the market town of Cardigan, set around Cardigan Bay with a plethora of beaches like Mwnt, Poppit Sands and Newport Sands to name a few, which are ideal for dog walking, building sandcastles, fishing or sunbathing. The famous walled town of Tenby is around 50 minutes away. Beach 9 miles. Shop and restaurant 2 miles, pub 800 yards.

About the local area

Pembrokeshire has tremendous variety. From majestic cliffs to sand dunes, from broad river estuaries to cascading streams, from gently rolling arable land to rocky outcrop - all can be seen within a few miles of each other.

This wealth of contrasts is due to the very bones of the land. The fact that such a variety of rock types occur within such a comparatively small area has directly affected the scenery and history of this westerly quarter of Wales.

The Pembrokeshire Coast National Park, one of Britain's breathing spaces, takes in about a third of the county including the entire coastal strip, the upper reaches of the Daugleddau and the Preseli's. Its the only National Park that is almost all coastal. The National Park run an extensive programme of activities and events for both adults and children so you can really make the most of what the area has to offer.

Pembrokeshire is also the capital of activities! Everything from coasteering, diving, sailing and surfing by the coast to riding, walking and cycling just about anywhere! Just don't forget to relax on one of 83 beaches in the county!
