    Tresaith Beach

best LOCAL beaches

In addition to the below, its worth reading the Visitors book inside each cottage when you arrive as previous guests have very kindly left detailed notes on where is good to go.

Nearest beach is Tresaith – approx. 20 mins drive. Dogs are restricted to a section of the beach between May 1st and September 30th.Very busy in the summer months but has the added benefit of a good pub, The Ship Inn, right on the front.

  • Penbryn – next to Tresaith – is a beautiful sandy National Trust beach. Dogs are not permitted between May 1st and September 30th but it’s a must visit at any time of year.
  • Best year round dog friendly beach is Poppit Sands, just beyond St Dogmaels, Cardigan – approx. 35 mins drive.Huge sandy beach with sand dunes and a great café adjacent to the car park. Café is open every day of the week from April 1st to October 31st and during the winter and spring its open at weekends.
  • Prettiest beach is arguably the National Trust Mwnt beach (no dogs from May 1st to September 30th) but you can still enjoy a lovely dog walk all year round from the car park up to the cliff hill top from where you get the most amazing panoramic views.Take some binoculars as it’s a great dolphin watching spot and take a moment to visit the tiny 14thCentury chapel next to the car park.

  • New Quay Harbour Beach – a very picturesque old fishing port with two beaches.Lots of nice places to drink and eat but our favourite spot has got to be the Lime Crab for traditional takeaway fish’n’chips - we especially love the salt’n’pepper squid and tempura prawns with chips; enjoy whilst sitting on the harbour wall.

what our guests say

We had booked a 3 night stay at short notice and we were not disappointed with our choice. The cottage was quaint, homely and fully functional. It was clean and tidy with a lovely welcome basket on arrival. The weather was not the best but our first night was comfortable and warm with the sound of the rain outside the window.
Due to unforseen circumstances beyond anyone's control, the next day we needed to move into the Granary. That too was a treat. Underfloor heating, log burner and
a skylight in the bedroom where we could see a blanket of stars. Amazing.
Both properties had private hot tubs. An array of animals to see and many small birds that were a joy to watch.
The owners were extremley welcoming and attentive, pleasant and helpful.
The cottage has a rural setting but is still central enough for easy access to all points of interest.
All in all a fantastic stay and we are very keen to return.
