We know the area well, but this was the first time we'd stayed at Erw Wen, a well-appointed, modern but rambling, house both convenient for the beach and not overlooked.
Communications around the booking and with local 'caretakers' was efficient. Notices and instructions for guests at the house were helpful and unobtrusive.
The whole experience was positive.
Really great house in ideal location - loved the views, the garden, the Aga, the spacious kitchen diner, and the general feel of the place. A well equipped proper house/home with everything you need whatever the weather. There was not a single negative, and the owners were very reasonable and easy to deal with.
We stayed for a week at this lovely holiday home for a family holiday, there were 9 of us and 2 dogs (kids and grandparents). Even though the house was very spacious and we were not on top of each other, there was a very cosy feel to the property, it was warm and welcoming. The kitchen/breakfast room/sun room was wonderful with the Aga adding to the warmth and a view to die for. Cooking on the Aga was an experience which we enjoyed very much, the kitchen was extremely well equipped plenty of quality pots pans and dishes etc. The garden was huge with far reaching views, the girls and dogs had a brilliant time and the table tennis in the garage kept many a tournament going! There was a wood burning stove in the lounge however we didn't use this as the Aga and the heating was enough for us. The location of the house was perfect, a 2 minute walk to the lovely beach and rock pools, perfect for exploring, the village of Newport a 10 minute stroll had everything you could wish for, pubs, a lovely butchers, convenience store and a few other little interesting shops to add to the quaintness of the place. the castle pub allowed dogs. This cottage is perfect for a relaxing holiday in a beautiful location, we hope to return sometime soon!
With stunning views over the harbour and out to sea, Erw Wen cottage is such a welcoming and comfortable place to stay. The cottage is actually a very spacious house and it's only 5 minutes walk down the lane to the sea, so it's perfectly placed for swimming with plenty of space for drying wet swimming & boating gear and general beach stuff. We did lots of walking both along the Pembrokeshire coast path (which is also 5 minutes walk away from the house) and inland and I particularly liked to come back after a good walk to a warm and relaxing house, sitting in the kitchen/breakfast room and looking out over the sea. We also enjoyed walking along the Parrog past the harbour into the little town and trying out the various bars and restaurants. A really special place.
