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.

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.
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!
