Granston House is conveniently situated between Fishguard and St Davids in the tiny hamlet of Granston opposite the secluded medieval church. It is approximately a mile from the stunning coast path and the small pebbly beaches with some sand at low tide of Aberbach and Abermawr. It is conveniently situated to other cottages on the website including Felin Fawr, Aberbach (Smugglers Cottage), Garn Barcud and Dyffryn Moor making it ideal should families wish to be close together without having to share.
A stroll from the cottage to the sea is a delight especially in the Spring when the primroses, bluebells, wild garlic and many other wild flowers are in abundance. The wildlife is a joy to watch at any time of the year with birds nesting, seals and pups can be seen in the secluded bays, sea birds roosting in the bays in the evenings and badgers wandering along the lanes and don’t forget the stunning sunsets.
For the more energetic walkers of the spectacular Pembrokeshire Coast Path, the Strumble Shuttle bus can be flagged down outside the cottage enabling you to walk back from various parts of the coastline. The village of Mathry has a pub and café which can be included in an easy circular walk of approximately 6 miles from the cottage. For those of you wishing to spend days rambling along the coastal path exploring coastal villages such as Abercastle and Porthgain, as well as possibly making a trek to Strumble Head for panoramic views across the Pembrokeshire coastline, also popular with birdwatchers. With secluded coves and hidden bays, this part of the coastline is a favourite amongst water sports enthusiasts not forgetting that the Blue Lagoon at Abereiddy is nearby – popular with kayakers and a hot spot for coasteering. Remember, if you become tired you can catch the Strumble Shuttle back to the house! There are so many places of interest to explore in the vicinity including the Tregwynt Woollen Mill with its café and shop is only a few minutes walk from the cottage. Abermawr beach is popular with surfers and body boarders in the right conditions. St David’s, with its medieval cathedral, is only a few miles away, as is Fishguard, with its harbour and weekly farmers’ market; both offer excellent shops, galleries, pubs and restaurants.
This delightful traditional cottage has a home from home feel about it. The owners have a love of art and antiques which they share with you in the cottage.

This is truly a place to relax and retreat to.
Trip Advisor *****
After a long long year of lockdown we are so lucky to be allowed back Wales from England and what a perfect week we have had. The cottage is absolutely perfect – had everything one could want. The bed was very comfortable. You know when you have had a good holiday when you don’t want to go home! Thank you for a wonderful cottage.
Thank you for our lovely stay at Granston House. We had a super mini
holiday in Aber-Barbados. I even swam and the sea was so stimulating. The
house was great….
….. We went on many runs down to Abermawr via the woods – the spring
flowers and bluebells at this time of year are beautiful. All in all a fabulous
week and Pembrokeshire has captured a bit of our hearts. We will be back!
Thank you for a really comfortable stay here!
We enjoyed glorious sunny weather, walked to the woollen mill and onto the
beach and from Abereiddy to Porthgain. Took a boat trip to Ramsey Island
and placed golf at Priskelly Forest and St David’s golf clubs. Wonderful choir
at Evensong and Compline in the cathedral. We found the cottage homely
Had a lovely week, the weather was good. Several lovely walks to Abermawr
and Aberbach. Visited the Mill Cafetaria (breakfast and lunch) both very tasty!
Stunning scenery in Permbrokeshire, this was my first visit and hopefully not
my last. The cottage was most comfortable.
Thank you for a lovely stay in a comfortable and spacious cottage.
On the record (I guess!) this was one of the worst weather weekends ever!!
But we’ve had a great time, nevertheless and done all that we wanted to do.
A cosy cottage, lovely in every way.
Thank you so very much for a truly wonderful week in this gorgeous, cosy,
very well equipped cottage.
Far from the madding crowd….!

A lovely clean house with secure garden. All amenities and equipment for the
house needed and more! Having a TV and music available was great.
Beds comfortable….we all slept well.
A tiny bat we found in the living room added to the holiday! Johnny the 5 year
old loved it and after gentle handling to the garden, hands were washed.
We paddled and swam at St Davids and near Fishguard, visited Marloes to
see the farm where a relative grew up…. Thank you

Thank you so much for a magnificent stay in your lovely cottage. We enjoyed
breath-taking walks by the sea and already look forward to coming back to
this most beautiful corner of the country. (Montreal)
Another lovely few days relaxing here – this time with our daughter Lottie. We
loved introducing her to the beautiful Pembrokeshire coast (and the Sloop!) …
It was wonderful for us to have (friends) join us for a few nights too. Great
company in a special place.
Aug 2020: (HomeAway review, plus: Thanks for a very memorable happy stay. I love this house. It is very peaceful and there is a huge garden. Thank you for a wonderful stay.
Sep 2020: (HomeAway review, plus: Apart from one day of heavy coastal mist, we have basked in glorious sunshine. We’ve enjoyed some wonderful walks with stunning views and have seen many seals with their pups, Welsh ponies and beautiful wild flowers.
Best pub: Sloop Inn in Porthgain but had some good suppers in the Harp (Letterston) and the Farmers’ Arms (Mathry). However, a highlight was sitting on the quayside in Lower Town (Fishguard) eating a crab salad and a mackerel bap!
