This pretty slate roofed Welsh Cottage is situated on the edge of Trefin village in the Pembrokeshire National Park exactly half way between St Davids and Fishguard. The stunning coastal footpath is only a few minutes walk away, and in late summer seal pups can be seen on the beaches under the local cliffs. Good food and drink can be enjoyed at the Ship Inn in the centre of the atmospheric village, and the world famous Sloop Inn at Porthgain is a few minutes drive away. The cottage is full of character, and the enclosed patio at the back of the cottage is a real sun trap just perfect for barbecues, whilst the actual garden is ideally suited for badminton and croquet. The tiny city of St Davids with its memorable cathedral is a short 10 minutes walk drive away, and the family might like to try out the new swimming complex at Blue Lagoon, and the famous Oakwood funfair slightly further afield. The cottage is fully centrally heated but also has a wood burning stove in the sitting room. Please note we normally only let the cottage Saturday to Saturday unless the booking is out of season or a last minute enquiry. Towels can be supplied at an extra cost of £3 each.

Lovely cottage, great location
The cottage was lovely, if a bit tired, but that didn't detract from our enjoyment of it.
It had everything that we needed to help make our stay stress free. The beach is a few minutes walk away, as is the Ship Inn - the food is OK but nothing special - it certainly filled a hole when we needed it. Everyone very friendly and we'll definitely be returning to Wales again.
Traditional Welsh cottage; some nice touches.
Had a lovely time in Trefin despite the weather being variable. Brilliantly positioned between St David's and Fishguard and right on the coastal path. Near to so many good beaches - we particularly enjoyed the wild waves at Whitesands - but also other attractions for wetter days. The walk to Porthgain for lunch at the Sloop was along a beautiful stretch of the coast and we came back through the fields which gave us another perspective. Enjoyed the local pub in the evenings. The two double bedrooms were a good size as was the third bedroom for a single person. Be aware that the bunk room is very small though - our teenager found it a bit claustrophobic. Loved the Welsh settles in the dining room and having a dryer to use in the outhouse helped enormously with damp clothes and towels after a day at the beach. House could do with a bit TLC (bathroom window doesn't close & the toilet was wobbly!) but generally a good place to be based. We'd book it again.
Great location, no frills accomodation
The cottage is in a brilliant location. A pretty little village with a little beach area at the bottom and right on the coastal path. We walked to Abercastle, Porthgain and Abereidy from the cottage and explored St David’s and other areas by car. The cottage has very comfortable beds and is well equipped with cooking equipment and cutlery etc.
This cottage could do with some tlc - I guess this is reflected in the price. One of the lamps is broken and the toaster needs replacing. The washing machine is on its last legs and I’m being picky but all the light bulbs are far too bright. We had to take the dining room one out.
On the whole a fantastic walking holiday.
Since your visit the cottage has had its annual spring clean ready for the new season! Various areas have been re-decorated and any broken appliances/lights dealt with. We are very sorry this had not been completed in time for you but the heavy snow around Easter had delayed things for us.
Lovely cosy welcoming cottage
Lovely stay. Glenfor is a warm spacious and well equipped cottage with lovely quality period furnishings, lashings of hot water & great log burner for cosy evenings in. On sunny days the patio or garden is a great place to relax. A real sun trap and safe & secure if you have children or dogs.
We will certainly return for another relaxing break.
Many thanks to Rupert!
Very many thanks for your kind review and we will certainly look forward to welcoming you back at Glenfor one day!
Beautiful cottage which we didn't want to leave.
Thanks for letting us enjoy your gorgeous cottage. We loved everything about it. Great place to just chill out if the weather is not so kind.
Stunning coastal path nearby and loved the beach with the old mill.
Could go on and on Rupert thanks again.
Thank you for writing such a kind review and we will hope to see you again at the cottage soon!
A comfortable and cozy cottage with great outdoor space
The cottage was very comfortable and spotlessly clean. Lots of hot water. The outdoor space was ideal for BBQ's, The weather was kind and we all had a wonderful time, fishing, walking and enjoying the wonderful countryside. The local pub - the ship was very welcoming with good pub meals it even did a vegan curry. Picton castle a bit expensive but a great day out with wonderful gardens. The boat trip around Skomer island with out of the blue was worth every penny very exciting and we saw lots of seals.
The only down side was the cooking facilities which need updating - usable but took forever and the grill did not really work at all. Also a spot light which had blown a bulb out and was left hanging by a wire and had left a scorch mark on the fitting. We informed the caretaker as it looked like a fire hazard. She said she would send an electrician but we didn't see one during our stay and the bulb remained hanging down. However non of this spoilt the holiday and overall the cottage was great. Parking a bit of a squeeze if you have a big car.
Many thanks for the review. The cooker is being replaced this winter and unfortunately the only local electrician couldn't come immediately. It was sorted on the Saturday that you left! Our apologies for not being able to do anything sooner.
The cove at Aberfelin with its rock pools, tunnel, sandy and shingle beaches is 5 minutes walk away and from there the coastal path can be picked up.
