Aberbach cove in Pembrokeshire Coast National Park
One of the most popular holiday cottages in Wales, this cottage has an amazing location with direct access down through your own land to one of the most beautiful beaches in the UK. As nobody else can park near you’ll often have the place to yourself and feel that you have your own private beach.
Named by The Times in the Top 20 UK Beach Houses - Best of Britain 2014
Stay RIGHT by one the loveliest beaches in West Wales at Felin Hescwm.
Within the Pembrokshire National Park you are perfectly placed to explore a variety of walks from the door; along the coast path to secluded coves, caves and rock pools, with a chance to see Choughs, Peregrines and an amazing variety of sea birds who come to nest on the cliffs in the spring. You can walk up on to the Preseli hills behind, and on a clear day you can see to the Wicklow mountains, the Lleyn Peninsular and the Snowdonia mountains.
If you have your own Kayak (it is possible to store it at Felin Hescwm) you can launch directly from the beach and discover the many secret coves along the coastline - get up close and personal with dolphins and seals too!
You can enjoy breakfast or take a sundowner on the balcony and drink in the views of the sea - This place is a truly a hidden gem. More photos on our Facebook page here
* Note: In 2016 the water driven corn mill will be back in working order for demonstrations (by arrangement)
We had a lovely but too brief weekend at Felin Hescwm. The cottage is sensitively and tastefully converted, with everything that we needed for our break. The location is incredible with the stream...
Underfloor heating throughout ground floor and skirting heating upstairs, plus wood-burning stove. First basket of wood provided and further supplies can be bought on site.
Open plan kitchen, living and dining room
We had a lovely but too brief weekend at Felin Hescwm. The cottage is sensitively and tastefully converted, with everything that we needed for our break. The location is incredible with the stream and waterfall, and then only a couple of minutes walk to Aberbach beach. We had a lovely time walking the coastal path, playing Pooh sticks on the bridge on the beach and skimming stones. We definiately hope to go back soon! Five stars!
Clever barn conversion. Warm and comfortable Beautiful part of Pembrokeshire's with wonderful long sandy beach nearby and friendly villages
Barn has been renovated to an excellent standard. A real get away from it all holiday with the beach right on your door step. Excellent !!
The cottage was beautifully furnished and the accommodation and facilities luxurious, including a beautiful garden and fine views.Coffee beans, grinder and a Moka pot were particularly appreciated! We enjoyed everything about our stay. Many thanks to our helpful and kind hosts.
Fantastic property in perfect location. Right on the coast path but handy for the coast road if you need to explore further afield. Great food in nearby Newport. A keeper!
A truly individual and stylish cottage...each room and aspect a delight.
Beautiful cottage in a stunning location. Very comfortable accommodation with everything that we needed. Best of all is the fabulous secluded beach just down the path.
This was our second time at Felin Hescwm, it was ideal for our birthday celebrations. Cottage and setting are stunning. Superb place to go and relax and walk. Jo and John very friendly and helpful. Will definitely return.
A real escape from it all with the sea on its doorstep! An unique, cosy cottage with everything you need and of the highest quality.A gem of a place - we will be returning!
A beautiful cottage, in a lovely setting. We loved the slate staircase and the little windows with their tiny shutters - it has been fitted out with great attention to detail. Having breakfast on the little balcony was wonderful and it's great for astronomy as the sky is so dark here! Well situated for walking, which was just as well as we were reluctant to drive along the very narrow lane more than was absolutely necessary!
A truly magical place to stay - we loved it here. The short walk down to the beach is fantastic and we spent most of our days on the beach enjoying the sunshine with our two golden retrievers. The cottage and gardens are beautiful with wonderful detail and touches of luxury. John and Jo are very welcoming and helpful. We will be looking to book again!
This is a very special place, with a storybook setting: a waterfall by a mill, and a short path down to a quiet cove. Felin Hescwm Refuge is a great place to stay, and you are guaranteed to leave it feeling renewed,
Wonderful holiday. Didn't really think locations like this still exist in the British Isles. Beyond beautiful. Superb cottage, fantastic base for a holiday. Can't recommend highly enough.
This was with a big gap the best accommodation we ever had. We can truly recommend this cottage and the surroundings. The hosts, Jo and John, were very polite and helped us with a lot of good advice. Never before thought to go somewhere twice - this time we honestly consider.
Paradise in Pembrokeshire! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Felin Hescwm. Such peace and tranquility, surrounded by beautiful gardens and a beach 150 yards away. A very well appointed house with real character and charm. Our dog Lottie loved it too!
What a wonderful holiday. I was returning to Hescwm Mill having spent many happy holidays there in the 80's.The holiday more than delivered! The cottage is beautiful and luxurious with many lovely signs of attention to detail: well-stocked book-shelves and charity book swap, lovely wood burning stove, balcony with view to sea, waterfall in the garden, lovely wrought-iron and slate throughout house...and I could go on. Very best bits: wonderful beach and coastal paths, comfy deep sleeps with the sound of the waterfall through the open window.
Beautifully converted barn. Everything immaculate. Lovely owners. One small thing, we did not fully appreciate from your info that the garden does not quite join the barn ( being the other side of the footpath) and is also the owners garden, not so easy with dogs. We managed with no problem though. Had a lovely holiday. Thanks.
"Your accommodation and quality of facilities are quite simply perfect. Exquisitely tasteful to the finest detail, nothing can be faulted." Eve & Steve 18 Oct 2013.
"Wonderful, faultless, will come again, made a perfect weekend" Albert & Shelia Ward 7 Oct 2013
"Please use the visitor book as John & Jo may direct you, for the cottage and gardens of the historic mill at Hescwm are their creation. They combine the comforts of technology with the charms with rusticity; and you are the transmitters of this treasure to future friends." John Nandris 29 Aug 2013
'The cottage and the views are sublime - it has been a real treat for us to unwind in such tranquil surroundings. We loved exploring the beach, garden and nearby town Newport. We will be sure to reccommend our stay here to everyone we know! We hope to return in the future for more breakfast on the beach!!' Daniel & Carena - Nov 2013
