Customer Reviews of Ty Olwen
A Fabulous retreat, greatly enjoyed!
Lovely Cottage and great weather until today! Had some fine walks. All praise to coastal Cottages after I locked myself out a couple of days ago- how embarrasing :( but was dealt with great courtesy!
Lovely setting, enjoyed the sights and loved the activities locally
what a lovely place to spend a week, the boys have had so much fun making dams on the beach and throwing stones in the sea. We loved exploring all the local beaches, a small cove just outside Trefin was a favourite with a cave. Whitesands busy but lovely too. Two very sad boys in the car now waiting to go home, we'll miss our little cottage by the sea!
Abercastle is a great place from which to explore Pembrokeshire. Ty Olwen has lovely views of the bay. Highlights for us were, Whitesands, a trip to Ramsey Island.
We are sitting enjoying our last glass of red wine on your bench while the sun shines down on us - 7.20pm - beautiful. Our 11 year old is on the beach - again!!- looking for any crabs she can find. On arriving we walked south on the headland and saw a pair of peregrines- wonderful! Our 13 year old nearly managed to give up her I pod- nearly! Thank you for no Wifi!! We are sorry we have to leave

First time in Abercastle, wont be the last. Cottage perfect and very friendly people - 29 Degrees, why go abroad. We visited a beach to the right of whitesands, 15 min walk along cliff Top. Really good with caves full of water
Pete and Nill
Lovely week with great weather encouraging us to do lots of favourite coastal walks. We used the bus back from Porthgain ( lovely Crab sandwiches at the Sloop Inn) and to Strumble head. The rain started on our walk back from Strumble head and continued on and off. On Friday morning we visited Gwuan Valley Brewery, Narberth and Solva. A beautiful sunset for our last evening following a sunny afternoon

Sarah and Norman - you made the best choice of holiday ever! We are probably in our 14th/15th years of Abercastle and it doesn't get any better than this last week. So hot and sunny - marvellous. The Robin expected to have titbits every time he saw us sitting on the chair. Here's to the next break
Sarah and Norman
Fifth time in Ty Olwen and couldn't wait to get back here. It's been a marvellous week- perfect weather for walking and watching the tide. It just keeps on going out and coming back in again! Have seen plenty of seals and sea birds around the coast, and as always have marvelled at the fantastic flowers. Its so good to be able to walk without having driven- and the buses are still running! Where has the week gone? Its all over so soon, havent even eaten out anywhere. Who would want to miss the sun setting over the cove? Have a marvellous time whoever is here next! Thanks for everything once again
Shannon & Alex
Our first visit here. We joined friends who have stayed in the cottage twice before. Beautiful weather, walks and sights that I will revisit in memory as I heard back up north. A wonderful holiday
Sandie & John
An enjoyable week with mixed weather. Cottage clean and cosy. Amazing selection of birds around Abercastle...never seen so many wrens! Wonderful, peaceful view to look out on ( even in stormy weather)... Nature rules. OK! We'll be back sometime
John & Sonia
very windy on arrival but then the weather improved with mostly sunny days. The flowers on the coastal path were amazing very quiet and relaxing week. Our second stay at this cottage in 2014
Luke, Jodi & Heather Lily (6 months)
Thank you for a lovely stay, it was Heather Lily's first holiday and she loved the clean air, the sound of the river, waves and watching the many little birds come to visit. We stocked up on food from the Nica store in St Davids and set up base camp in Abercastle. Highlights included a walk to abermawr beach and a picnic, the Strumble bus to Porthgain and fuelling up at the Shed before walking the coastal path home. A lovely, lovely, lovely holiday- we will be back xxx

Mal & Julia
We have had a relaxing week, the cottage was lovely, the weather good. Abercastleis a beautifull place, the people of Pembrokeshirevery friendly and helpful, we got to know trevor and his daughter who are the nicest people we have ever met. Walks around the cliffs with the bonus of seals and pups made our week a memorable one, and we hope to come back

It’s good to have games in the cupboard for the children in case they forgot them. Its also nice to have a beach on your doorstep
