BFB's Overview

It takes little more than that first view of Clydey Cottages to understand exactly why it has won Best Place to Stay in Wales almost annually since 2010. The views, over meadows, hills and woodland, are spectacular and the picture perfect 18th century stone exteriors of these pretty farm cottages are utterly charming. Later comes the relaxed feeling of being able to let your little ones 'off the leash' and roam freely amongst 20 acres of beautiful grounds, by which time, most people are just about ready to move in full-time themselves, especially now there's a complimentary children's club/creche!


Owners, Dewi and Jacqui Davies ditched their briefcases in favour of tool belts and completely renovated the cluster of 10 cottages in mid 2003. The results are luxurious, comfortable and exceptionally well-equipped homes-from-home with interiors that are stylish, although leaning more towards sympathetic than contemporary. The indoor and outdoor hot tubs, indoor heated swimming pool, spa suite offering Decleor treatments and sundeck, with breathtaking views, ensure relaxation comes easily to parents, whilst mini guests adore getting involved with the farm thanks to the daily animal feeding and egg collecting rounds. If that doesn't wear them out, then being free to roam the almost traffic free grounds, well-equipped timber play area and a fantastically well-equipped indoor playroom with soft play and cosy coffee corner for grown ups, along with swimming in the indoor pool, is sure to have the desired effect, which will allow parents to indulge in pre-bookable hampers of fresh, organic local breakfast goodies and the excellent range of 'Cook!' gourmet ready-meals available in the honesty larder.

Recently, Clydey has introduced a complimentary creche and kids club which is run by CRB checked and qualified staff two days a week. This gives parents the ideal opportunity to sneak off to the new spa suite and sample on the indulgent Decleor branded treatments or one of the weekly Baby Massage classes. During school holidays there are also regular circus skills and woodland adventure sessions, which parents are welcome to join in with too.

Lavender is a cosy one-bedroom cottage with a wealth of period features: exposed wooden beams, thick stone walls and an inglenook fireplace with warming wood burning stove,The rustic country charm is cleverly blended with contemporary, luxurious touches like an iPod dock, flatscreen TV (complete with freeview and the CBeebies channel!) and a DVD player making cosy nights in an indulgence after a busy day exploring. The fitted kitchen is small but well equipped with a larder fridge (+ ice box), a full size electric oven with ceramic hob and a microwave.

Upstairs, there is a double bedroom with king sized bed (with space for cot) and a small bathroom with bath and power shower. For those above average height, watch your head in the bathroom as the beams are fairly low!

Location Information

The cottages are nestled in 20 acres of grounds around four miles from the village of Cenarth with its famous salmon leap falls, in the unspoilt North Pembrokeshire Coastal National Park. The area is crammed with hidden coves and wide sandy beaches. Dolphins are often spotted in nearby Mwnt, which is a peaceful sandy cove. Try Tresaith for its handy pub, with kids meals, overlooking the beach.

Eating & Drinking - The Nag's Head in Abercych (2.5miles away) has a great reputation for good food and ale, as well as having a lovely outdoor play area for kids. . Some of the region's best restaurants are also fairly close to the cottages. The Harbourmaster at Aberaeron and Penrhiwllan gastro-pub, The Daffodil, are both well worth arranging babysitting for, although little ones are welcome at anytime.

Days Out - Around 45mins drive away, 'Best Family Day Out in Wales' award-winning Folly Farm is a brilliant wet weather day out thanks to its petting farm, tractor tours, indoor Victorian fun fair, soft play and huge adventure play zone, most of which are under cover. Don't miss a dolphin or seal spotting boat trip from Cardigan and the popular Victorian seaside resort of Tenby (near Folly Farm).

Shopping - Newcastle Emlyn around five miles from the cottages has a good selection of shops, banks, bistros, cafes and delis. For lovely boutique shopping, art galleries and a ceramic painting cafe, visit the pretty town of Narbeth.. try to resist the chocolate factory tours nearby!

Who owns this place?

Welcome, croeso, to our home – Clydey Cottages Pembrokeshire. We, The Davies Family, are Dewi, Jacqui, and our three children Tomos (14yrs), Dafydd (12yrs) and Catrin (8yrs).

We knew we had found a special place as soon as we saw it and we know you’ll feel the same way. We’d like to share it with you.

We very much look forward to welcoming you to Clydey Cottages Pembrokeshire in the near future.

The Davies Family

What do they love about it?

“Life has certainly taken on a new meaning” says Dewi. “It’s about living in the here and now, not saving for retirement and yearning for the day when you can do what you want without the constraints of City work and life. We’ve worked hard over the last 9 years in building up the business and creating a special place that we ourselves would want to stay on holiday.”

The ‘icing on the cake’ came in 2009, when Clydey Cottages won two awards in the Pembrokeshire Tourism Awards 2009 – Best Marketing Campaign and Best Self-Catering Accommodation. Since then they have won Best Place To Stay in Wales 2010 & 2015, followed by Best Place To Stay Pembroekshire for 2011, 2013 & 2015, Tripadvisor also presented them with Excellence Awards each year from 2010 through to 2014, followed by entry to the very rare "Hall Of Fame" in 2015. The couple are obviously delighted at being rewarded for their hard work :- “We’re passionate about what we do – making sure that everyone who comes to Clydey Cottages, enjoys it so much that they also want a little piece of our dream – even if it’s only for a week or two.”

“Seeing our children grow up with carefree freedom, plenty of space and outdoor life is confirmation that we definitely made the right decision – if we need confirmation that is. I can honestly say, there is nothing, absolutely nothing that I miss about our previous life.” says Jacqui dreamily as she sits on the bench outside the Farmhouse, listening to the birdsong and watching her young family run through the wild flower meadow outside – idyllic indeed.

What do the kids love about it?

From the moment children arrive, they look forward to days full of fun, frolics and fantastic memories.

In the morning, children can join the 'Clydey Young Farmers Club' and help to feed the resident Kune Kune pig - Iggle; the sheep with their lambs; Shetland ponies; Noah and Nelly the donkey's; Zig & Zag the Pygmy Goats, the Alpacas, the rabbits, guinea pigs and the chickens - not forgetting to collect the freshly laid eggs and take them back to Mum and Dad for breakfast very day.

After animal feeding, there is splashing around in the indoor heated pool to be done, before heading over to the adventure playground with climbing tower, slide, see-saw, rope swings and sand-pit.

The 20 acres of grounds provide a safe environment for children to run around and roam freely, which means Mum and Dad can relax, knowing their little ones are not only happy and safe, but enjoying the fresh, outdoor Pembrokeshire air.

At any time of day, the Games Room provides an indoor haven for Table Tennis, Table Football, Pool and Air Hockey as well as Board Games , books and DVD's to borrow and take back to your cottage for a fun-filled evening.

Younger members of the family are not forgotten. There is an indoor soft play area, with comfy sofas for Mum and Dad to relax with a coffee and read magazines whilst the little ones play; the play-pen on the pool side to keep babies safe whilst Mum and Dad enjoy a relaxing swim; as well as the sand-pit, ride-on toys and baby swing.

New for 2016 is the complimentary Children's Club Creche, where you can leave your little ones for some supervised play whilst you enjoy a few child-free hours to have a relaxing treatment in the dedicated Clydey Spa, a leisurely lunch or simply to put your feet up with a good book.

  • Amazing can't wait to go backReview dated 01/10/2018

  • Beautiful cottage with everything we needed for us and our 2 year old. Amazing on site facilities, we couldn't fault anything. We didn't want to leave and will definitely be returning.Review dated 24/10/2017

  • The staff at Clydey Cottages went out of their way to make our stay as welcoming and as comfortable as possible - absolutely top notch service. It's also a fantastic place for the kids. Our 2 year old adored feeding the animals with "Old MacDonald" every morning and spent many hours playing at the outdoor park and the indoor soft play. The kids club and babysitting service provided were also absolutely excellent. We knew our daughter was in excellent hands. I'd like to make particular mention of Rachel, who had an extremely calm and lovely nature, so my daughter took an instant liking to her. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending it to other families and hope to return soon!Review dated 20/04/2017

  • Especially good re baby friendliness.Review dated 20/06/2013

  • Excellent accommodation in a very relaxing location. The facilities on site are outstanding. Our one year old was thoroughly entertained and loved feeding the animals each morning.Review dated 31/07/2012

  • You have thought of everything to make a self-catering holiday VERY comfortable - lots of nice touches but without being frivolous. We loved everything about it! We loved the extras like the fish from the fishman, the frozen puddings etc. Most of all we loved the wonderful views and tranquillity - the perfect antidote to our hectic urban lives! All the information provided before and during the stay was extremely helpful.Review dated 26/08/2011

  • It has been perfect for all of us. Every little possible thing has been thought of.Review dated 05/08/2011

  • Its our first proper family holiday with just the 3 of us and its been perfect in every way - animal feeding, the pool, the hit tub - its all been fantastic.Review dated 06/05/2011

  • With two kids to occupy in the wet weather, Clydey has been perfect. Pool, Playroom, Swings and the Animals have all kept the little ones very busy. With the great advice of the staff we have also ventured out and visited some great places in the surrounding area. It's been three very hectic days, which is just what you need at half term. The rain has not held us back, but we are coming again to see Clydey in the sunshine ! It's a great location for a fab holiday !! Well done Dewi & Jacqui, you have got it just right !! (From TV's Tess Daly & Vernon Kay who stayed with their to daughters during Feb. half term)Review dated 01/03/2011
