Ty Isaf Holiday cottage in Mathry
Ty Isaf is a traditional stone cottage, delightfully renovated and deceptively spacious, set in the village of Mathry, just 2 miles from the fishing village of Abercastle and the sea. Its elevated position gives this cottage sweeping rural views across Pembrokeshire to the Preseli Hills from nearly every room.
The enclosed, lawn garden to the front is a wonderful spot to enjoy an alfresco meal while you admire the breathtaking outlook. Step into the spacious tiled hall with sweeping staircase. The cottage has been beautifully furnished in a stylish mix of contemporary and antique pieces, the large lounge with wooden floor and comfortable sofas has a wood burning stove for chillier evenings, while the kitchen/diner with modern, fitted kitchen area and a farmhouse table has a pot bellied stove to keep you cosy. Two of the double bedrooms are surprisingly spacious with exposed A frame beams and lovely views, the master has a wooden step ladder leading to a galleried crog loft bed in the eaves.
There is a popular village pub in Mathry within walking distance, as well as a Church and delightful village green. The newly opened Siop Fach Tearoom and Collectables is where you can enjoy breakfast, light lunch or afternoon tea and also browse the many collectables; china and glassware, jewellery and souvenirs; Beswick, Masons, Shelley, Wades, Britains.
Mathy is the perfect base from which to join the Pembrokeshire Coastal Path and explore this part of the Pembrokeshire coast, the picturesque fishing village of Abercastle is only a 2 mile walk away, while further afield lies the delightful beaches of Abermawr and Aberbach or in the opposite direction is the village of Trefin with its local pub and cafe leading down to the stone mill and beach of Aberferlin. Use the Puffin Shuttle bus and leave the car behind.
This cottage is sure to delight and is the perfect holiday base.

We had a lovely week of sunshine with plenty of trips out, Abereiddy beach is a favourite. The Farmers Arms is a very nice pub with good food, suitable for families. The kids really enjoyed their "fighting and farming" experience at Castell Henllys near Newport. Lovely views relaxing and we enjoyed the log burner. The kids appreciated the toys to play with in the garden and loved the rope swing. I am sure we will be back.
