Crab Cottage Holiday Cottage in Aberfforest Beach, Newport
A delightful, semi detached, original stone barn, simply but well converted to provide excellent accommodation in a unique setting within this cluster of cottages.
Crab Cottage has been renovated throughout to a high standard with oil fired central heating and woodburning stove making it really cosy. Retaining the original A frame beams and velux windows in the roof, along with crisp white walls gives the accommodation a light and airy feel. The double bedroom provides a romantic retreat, while the open plan living space with comfortable sofa and chairs has steep open tread stairs leading up to two cosy bedrooms set in the eaves, one of which is galleried and curtained.
A sunny south-facing patio fronts Crab Cottage which is entered through a stable door; an ideal spot to enjoy an alfresco meal.
Aberfforest is a very special bay on this beautiful coastline, pitted with tiny sandy coves and a favourite haunt of seals and dolphins. Deciduous ancient woodlands run down tiny valleys to the seas edge and birdwatchers and naturalists delight in the abundance of wildlife. The bay, which can only be approached by the general public over a long footpath, is almost private and has launching facilities available by prior arrangement. The small, sandy beach is perfect for swimming or kayaking and you may sometimes be joined by a seal. The Pembrokeshire Coast Path runs past Aberfforest; follow this for fantastic scenic walks to Newport beach and Dinas Head. The villages of Dinas and Newport with their shops, pubs and restaurants are under 2 miles, a pleasant walk in good weather.
The following properties are approximately 150 yards from the beach:

We had a lovely week. Enjoyed body boarding and playing on the beaches here and at our favourite place - Marloes Sands! We even managed to teach our retriever to swim. We drove over to Rosebush in the Preseli Hills and enjoyed a great family meal at Tafarn Sinc. We really enjoyed getting to know this area of Pembrokeshire better.
