From a hilltop position on the coast of Pembrokeshire, this quaint home offers stunning sea views and close proximity to castles, mountains and the best attractions in the county.

Named after a sixth century monk, St Dogmaels village sits on the estuary of the River Teifi on the Pembrokeshire coast – roughly a mile from the historic town of Cardigan. To the west of the village lies Poppit Sands, popular with surfers and known for its sea-life and fishing, and the Pembrokeshire Coastal Path stretches out on both sides. Besides having a variety of shops, pubs, tea rooms and restaurants, St Dogmaels is home to a 12th century Tironian Abbey (at which, during the summer, you might get to see some Shakespeare performed by locals!) If you care to take in more history, however, the castles of Cardigan and Cilgerran are within easy reach, and the inspiring Preseli Mountains (home of ancient, mythical sites such as Bedd Arthur) are also close by. Think you may have time to spare? Then the Welsh Wildlife Centre in Cilgerran provides fun for the whole family, and only closes for the Christmas holidays.

The house has three floors. When you first enter you’ll be greeted by the sight of a spacious, cosy lounge with soft furniture and light, airy decor – containing two sofas, chairs and a dining area which seats six. Here you can relax by the wood burner fire in the evenings, watch the TV/DVD or simply reflect on your day and plan the next adventure. For cooking, you’ll be impressed by the vast kitchen which houses an electric oven, gas hob, microwave, fridge and enough workspace for a veritable banquet! Upstairs, there are three bedrooms (king-size, double and twin) from which you can enjoy sublime views of the estuary and surrounding hills, plus a bathroom with shower over the bath. There is also a utility room downstairs, containing a fridge/freezer as well as a washing machine for your laundry needs. 

Outside, you’ll have a choice of two private gardens: an enclosed one at the front and the other at the back above the house, In the front space, you’ll find a seating area. At the back there’s a smaller terraced garden accessible via the attic bedroom, with a raised decking area, apple tree, beautiful views and a fire pit for some memorable, fun-filled nights under the stars. For your vehicles, roadside parking is available as well as additional free spaces in the village car park (some 600 yards downhill from the property).

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

The cottage is wonderfully placed for getting out and about, with Poppit Sands only a few minutes drive away, and the shops of Cardigan also very close. The Premier shop is just down the road and there is a fish and chip shop also a few minutes away (although it was closed when we were there). The house is in a beautiful part of Wales and there areRead more numerous walks to be enjoyed only a short drive away. The cottage is quite spacious and easily sleeps four or more. Hide

Climbing the hill to Adfer, as we did each day, several times, during rehearsals for the Shakespeare play in the abbey, was good exercise. The house fulfilled all our requirements for space, children (from baby to 12 year old), entertaining, musical composition, costume fittings, dogs, views and comfort.

The cottage was spacious and comfy with everything you could need for a short break. The area is beautiful and its easy to get to the coast or inland.

Very nice cottage with amazing views as you can see from the photos. Although parking can be an issue, the village carpark only costs 7.50 for a week!
